172. That isn't the core issue.
It doesn't matter what the "root causes" are. The OP did not state Moses existed and the Biblical Exodus happened as written, then was confronted with someone claiming the opposite who was then confronted with "any proof?" You cannot, logically, claim something is factual, then claim you cannot prove it because you "can't prove a negative." If we take your supposition that the OP is a refutation, then proof is still needed, simply stating the opposite is NOT proof.

Your second "problem" is irrelevant because the OP is binary. Moses either existed or didn't, there is no other possibility. Your other example is one of a loaded question and, in actuality, the burden would be on the one asking the question, not the one being asked because the asker is supposing.
