Some apologists apparently believe that everyone really believes in God, and anyone who claims not to believe is simply lying, or angry at God.  They may claim that atheism is a form of rebellion, or that God is so indelibly written on everyone's heart that no one can deny belief. The argument is frequently supported by the claim that it is impossible to know definitively that there is no God, therefore an atheist must be an agnostic.  This argument is fallacious as it incorrectly assumes that atheism  and agnosticism are mutually exclusive.
