"That which can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence." (Christopher Hitchens). Do you agree? Need some ideas of how to write an essay on this...

Actually,

" Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence though that which is asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence. "
                                                                      Carl Sagan 

Regardless, any rational person must agree. Without this proviso any nonsense can be advanced and one would have to give it consideration while wasting a great deal of time.

Religion is the classic assertion that one can dismiss as there has never been any evidence for religions specious claims.
