Atheists simply believe in one less God than you do.

Evolution is a theory based on overwhelming evidence. That's the difference between science and religion.

“Ok, maybe I know a little bit.”

But I don't know that.

That's funny (not being sarcastic). Have to admit it is a true statement.

It is also true that it is a scientific fact that animals evolve to adapt. I like to think of it much in the way that humans can temporarily adapt to maintain homeostasis. I think it is like homeostasis over a long period of time. However, in my mind, evolution as a scientific fact does not preclude the existence of God the Creator, and, instead of disproving intelligent design, is another example of a loving creator. Just my thoughts on the subject.

Evolution doesn't preclude the existence of God. But God is not necessary either.

There isn't really anything I can logically argue on that one. I wasn't there when whatever started these things that became our life happened, so if it happened in the absence of God then He wouldn't be necessary. If God personally started it all then it still would not prove Him necessary now. If there was a creator He could have created and then abandoned. I can't prove or disprove either way. Anything I said would be hearsay on one hand and heresy on the other.:))

What overwhelming evidence proves evolution? C14/C12 x 1/2 the age of the earth = Carbon Dating, now how does one determine the age of the earth?
Nothing overwhelming there because if we go by the bilical account 1/2 the age of the earth would be about 3000 years, if we go by some man made formula that the earth is 6.5 billion years old it is an arbitrary number, so nothing overwhelming there.

I see you agree that atheism falls into the definition of religion:
per wiki "Religion is an organized collection of belief systems, cultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to spirituality and, sometimes, to moral values"
Atheism is an organized belief system and a cultural and world view made from men that sets their spiritual and moral beliefs.
Just as Evolutionism does, it was developed by Darwin and others.

I don't care what your definition of atheism is. It's a term that only has meaning in relation to religion. Do you care if Muslims think of you as an Infidel?

It's pointless to argue with religionists. Here's a psychiatric definition of delusion:

"Delusions are irrational beliefs, held with a high level of conviction, that are highly resistant to change even when the delusional person is exposed to forms of proof that contradict the belief."

The theory of evolution is not controversial. No serious scientist doubts that evolution is a fact.

Evolution is as securely established as any theory in science, and whoever denies it merely betrays a woeful lack of education. It is a simple yet elegant explanation of our very existence and the existence of every living creature on the planet.

Darwin's explanation is one brilliantly simple idea. Natural selection drives gradual evolution over the immensities of geological time. It explains all the complexity of life.

It doesn't matter whether you accept or believe or understand the theory of evolution.

Muslims believe all that don't believe in Allah are infidels. They have a right to their beliefs, God gave all the right to reject Him or accept Him. Anthiest have the right given to them by God to believe He doesn't exist.

"The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good." Ps 14:1; Ps 53:1

Now so far there are no proofs that God doesn't exist as you claim, there also are no proofs that evolutionism is true. Especially since their test is based on 1/2 the age of the earth of which they have nothing concrete.

Ever heard of Dr. Henry Morris?

"Henry Madison Morris (October 6, 1918 – February 25, 2006) was an American young earth creationist and Christian apologist. He was one of the founders of the Creation Research Society and the Institute for Creation Research. He is considered by many to be "the father of modern creation science."He wrote numerous creationist and devotional books, and made regular television and radio appearances."

The institute has several research projects being conducted. The projects include research in; GENES, RATE II, FAST, CLIMATE, COSMOS, EPIPHANY. The institute has trained thousands of creation scientist, who are working around the world. They have been rebutting any type of “molecules-to-man” evolution in their research and analysis and use of scientific data. To find more about them you can go to their website at: http://www.icr.org/

Dr. Morris held a Theistic Evolution view for many years even returning to Rice University as an instructor. He speaks of the students having the very same questions that he had in his early years. So he began a study of the scientific and historical accuracy of Genesis. He estimates these studies occurred at least eight times. Every time the study was conducted he states it “became more exciting and instructive.”

Many with Docorates in a Science-related field hold to the young earth creation science and reject evolutionism. It isn't quite as accepted as you might think.

Religionists base most of their beliefs on an appeal to authority, not evidence. It would be interesting to know where these "doctorates in science-related fields" were earned. I have a feeling that a lot of bible colleges would be represented.

However, it's irrelevant. If you want to debunk the theory of evolution, provide evidence for counterarguments, not lists of "authorities."

Creationism isn't even a theory because it can't produce a testable hypothesis. Creationism and intelligent design are religious arguments, not scientific inquiry. That's fine, if you're interested in that sort of thing.

Many religionists reject evolution without having even a simple understanding of it. And they embrace ideas like the earth is less than 10,000 years old without the slightest bit of evidence.

Oh well.

You have very logical points. It is true that most people of religion, in my experience, automatically reject any notion of evolution and accept their religious beliefs without question. In most religious arenas there is no room for questioning the teachings.
Obviously, no one can prove or disprove the existence of God to a scientific certainty, and I dont see why either group cares about the age of the earth. It really doesn't matter. Whatever happened happened and when really seems less relevant than how. Not based on any religious preference or belief, and not caring one way or the other how old the earth is or why, I dont see how either group can be proven correct beyond a shadow of a doubt. Creationists cannot prove God created, and scientists assume as fact that carbon has always decayed at the same rate. I just think that, given the fact of evolution, if humans and animals can adjust and change there is nothing to prove that other things can't change as well in response to drastic environmental changes that could have taken place. Just because carbon has always behaved a certain way in our limited scope of time doesn't mean it always did so. I made that up and have absolutely nothing scientific or religious to support or not support it.

You havew stated "Evolution is a theory based on overwhelming evidence. That's the difference between science and religion." To which I have ask on what do base this assumption that there is overwhelming evidence? Carbon dating doesn't prove it so what overwhelming evidence do you have?

Next you statd: "The theory of evolution is not controversial. No serious scientist doubts that evolution is a fact.

Evolution is as securely established as any theory in science, and whoever denies it merely betrays a woeful lack of education. It is a simple yet elegant explanation of our very existence and the existence of every living creature on the planet.

Darwin's explanation is one brilliantly simple idea. Natural selection drives gradual evolution over the immensities of geological time. It explains all the complexity of life.

It doesn't matter whether you accept or believe or understand the theory of evolution" to which I gave you Dr. Henry Morris and many others who are creation scientist, and you automatically say "I have a feeling that a lot of bible colleges would be represented."
Dr. Morris taaught for years at Rice university he held for many years to Theistic Evolution, do you know what that is? Then after many years of study he changed to a belief in Creation Science, read a few of his books to see his theories and teachings, I have read a few of them myself.
Theistic Evolution proponents say "that the order for the creation as recorded in Genesis is the same as that proposed by the major evolutionary model. They don’t believe the six days of creation were literal six, twenty four hour days. They say rather that the days were in fact longer and that God used evolution as part of creation. This would explain the evolutionary time table."
I have studied all the different theories and I believe and accept the Biblical one it is the only logical teaching to me. Theere are many origin models aout their, Creationism, Thestic Evolution and Darwinian Evolution just to name 3 there are others, all cannot be proven and have no as you say "Evolution is a theory based on overwhelming evidence."
Have you studied all the models? Study them all and see what you find don't just accept as fact one because none can be proven true, all take faith that they are the correct model.

Theists start with the proposition that God created the world, and then proceed to justify this assertion. Sometimes this causes them to say things like maybe the laws of physics have changed.

Evolution is a theory that is extremely well grounded in evidence. The evidence consists most famously of the fossil record. Fossil evidence clearly shows that life is old and has changed over time. And it's much more than dinosaur bones. Clues exist even at the cellular level.

Evolutionary theory predicts that related organisms will share similarities that are derived from common ancestors. There is an extraordinary amount of this kind of evidence.

You can't understand the history of life on Earth unless you appreciate the true breadth of time and space. Evolution requires this expanse of time. It's kind of a shame that people who believe the earth is 4000 years old don't realize the awesomeness of the universe.

Natural selection is the mechanism through which evolution works. You can see this in agricultural breeding or the way viruses adapt. Over vast expanses of time evolution works miracles.

This is what I mean by the overwhelming evidence of evolution. And if you can produce verifiable evidence that contradicts any aspect of the theory, scientists will work diligently to change the theory to incorporate new evidence.
