. . . Gabriel's use of invisible pink bunnies in outer space comes as a refreshing, but still unconvincing change.

Why are these invisible animals always pink? How do atheists know they are pink? What test for pinkness is available for anything invisible?

Prove the pink, or accept that hypothetical arguments with hypothetical invisible colored critters are immaterial.

And thus the pink carrot is dangled and another unsuspecting bunny makes an accidental argument against God! Which is; and has remained a question; or if you like; the question - the Q-God?

Hello Jorge, as you stated. . .

Prove the pink, or accept that hypothetical arguments with hypothetical invisible colored critters are immaterial.

Exactly! Right on the nose! The hypothetical is immaterial; to my life; to many peoples life; probably to your life even as you “believe” it is otherwise.  Therein you have understood in different terms; colorful pink bunny terms; pink metaphors; what the agnostic is trying to convey to you.

But hypothetical and immaterial is not a small list; it is an infinite list including:  pink bunnies, pink unicorns, pink supreme-beings, non-pink supreme-beings and so on and on; unto infinity.  

Quasi compago vanitas ad infinitum. (bad latin) or Hypthetica Immatereria Ad Infinitum (Fake-ish latin J)     

Invisible; hypothetical; immaterial; unknown; transcendent; an invisible non-pink supreme-being; the invisible non-material father in the sky; all of these things are exactly(!) what you say they are hypothetical and immaterial.

Just as there is no test for pinkness on imagined-non-real space bunnies; there is no test for the invisible non-material father in the sky; this non-pink supreme-being you are thinking about (or imagining; albeit on a temporary basis); is un-testable, as you have pointed out. Now all you have to do is “believe” in the validity of your own argument (and it is valid; and logical; and makes-sensible; and it might not even be pink).
