    .....where is the logic or science in that statement?

    How you arrive at the statement or conclusion will decide whether or not it is logical or scientific.

    A scientific statement? No...not really. There is no way to empirically test this, unless you clarify what you mean by God.

    A logical statement? Based on Occam's Razor, I would say that this should be the default logical conclusion in the absence of any evidence.

    Absolute statements about deities I don't know if you could say are rooted in logic. Maybe. But the logical statement I would say is that "there's no evidence for gods" or something along those lines. Statements of absolute like God does not exist are matters of belief.

    Not logical, since there isnt enough information one way or another.

    You're asserting a sociological premise, from which you base your world view on. Since you believe it to be true, you therefore act accordingly, thus the assertion.

    As a sociological premise, we do not need to ask you to provide proof, because we would then get caught in the endless regression of proofs of proofs, and proofs of proofs of proofs. If you have supporting evidence you would like to share, that's fine, but not required.

    As your claim exists within a logical construct, it is logical even-though false.

    If the statement were a conclusion allegedly supported by evidence from the hard sciences, yes.

    If the statement is a sociological premise borne from personal experience, no.
