Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

I believe they exist because there is evidence that they exist. It really does not matter how you try to use weasel words to obfuscate that evidence
On the one hand I know they exist because their existence is a requirement for universal and galactic structure, because suns close to them are dramatically affected in their movement and that light is bent by their proximity, that gas clouds alter speed while passing such a mass or are swallowed by them and that x ray emissions are millions of times stronger animating from a black hole.
I do not demand direct observation of god or gods, I demand evidence – any validated/falsifiable evidence will do, and what are you completely short of?- Evidence. Why do you have difficulty understanding the concept when it applies to gods but are obtuse to the point of lies when it comes to black holes?
By the way – WFT have you invented now? Your statement fascinated me so I searched google and google scholar fir the term ‘black holes cannot exist in a Big Bang universe’ and found nothing... NOTHING to confirm your statement.
Once again your misunderstanding, misrepresentation and specious interpretation of science proves you are a total lunatic.
"On the one hand I know they exist because their existence is a requirement for universal and galactic structure,"

So, they have to exist. It just has to be so.

This is the same reasoning atheists use to assert abiogenesis...

Life is here, so it had to happen.

The name for this formal fallacy is "Argument from Final Consequences"

Combining two formal fallacies, you have also "Argument from Authority".

Doubling down on fallacy - that's you Chrissy.

It wasn't my assertion that Hawking thinks black holes do not exist.
It is his.
My first clue was when Hawking said, "Black holes do not exist".
Your contradiction remains....you accept the existence of a never-observed phenomenon by deducing it from effects.
On the other alleged phenomenon, "god", you ask for it to be shown to you. You did not ask for evidence - you asked to see it.
You want two different standards.
On the subject of black holes, you are in disagreement not only with Hawking, but other physicists, some of which not only say black holes DO NOT exist, but that they CANNOT EXIST.
And at the least, your deductions you accepted from the evidence are wrong, as Hawking and others maintain a DIFFERENT deduction.
You lose again. Welcome to Buck School. Have a seat in the back next to the Christian Stalin, who put "Atheism" in the name of his cabinet agencies.
Bwahahahahahahahaahahahahahhaa a...
Your double standard shows on that one too - you reject deduction from evidence when you don't like the deduction, but accept it when you like the deduction.
Enjoy your dishonesty-as-science. We know you will lie as needed.
hawking got a black hole where his brain used to be when he started making assumptions about God, a subject he can't know anymore about through his lil physical brain than an infant can

Yes, that's right.

A circle is also a symbol of infinity or eternity, because you can go round and round it forever. That's the reason they're used in wedding rings.

You should remember that any religious building, church, mosque, Temple or synagogue sporting a lightning rod shows a startling lack of conviction and confidence.
When lightning strikes a church and burns it down why is it rebuilt? Wasn't this God's will to destroy it.?
You theists are truly hilarious and unintentionally funny but too deluded to comprehend why we find you amusing.
Religion is a disease. It is born of fear; it compensates through hate in the guise of authority, revelation. Religion, enthroned in a powerful social organization, can become incredibly sadistic. No religion has been more cruel than the Christian.

Huge meat-eating, land-living dinosaurs evolved into birds by constantly shrinking for over 50 million years, scientists have revealed.

Theropods shrunk 12 times from 163kg (25st 9lb) to 0.8kg (1.8lb), before becoming modern birds.

The researchers found theropods were the only dinosaurs to get continuously smaller.

Their skeletons also changed four times faster than other dinosaurs, helping them to survive.

Results from the study are reported in the journal Science.

Previous work has shown that theropod dinosaurs, the dinosaur group which included Tyrannosaurus rex and Velociraptor and gave rise to modern birds, must have decreased in size at some point in their evolution into small, agile flyers.

But size changes frequently occurred in dinosaur evolution, so the research team members, led by Mike Lee, from the University of Adelaide, Australia, wanted to find out if the dramatic size reduction associated with the origin of birds was unique.

They also wanted to measure the rate of evolution in dinosaurs using a large data set.

The authors used sophisticated analytical tools - developed by molecular biologists trying to understand virus evolution - to study more than 1,500 dinosaur body traits coded from 120 well-documented species of theropod and early birds.

From this analysis they produced a detailed family tree mapping out the transformation of theropods to their bird descendants.

It traces evolving adaptations and changing body size over time and across dinosaur branches.

They found that the dinosaur group directly related to birds shrank rapidly from about 200 million years ago.

It showed a decrease in body mass of 162.2kg (25st 7lb) from the largest average body size to Archaeopteryx, the earliest known bird.

These bird ancestors also evolved new adaptations, including feathers, wishbones and wings, four times faster than other dinosaurs.

Shrinking and new bird-like traits jointly influenced the transition of dinosaurs to birds, researchers say.
The researchers concluded that the evolution of the branch of dinosaurs leading to birds was more innovative than other dinosaur lineages.

The authors say this sustained shrinking and accelerated evolution of smaller and smaller body size allowed the ancestors of birds to develop traits which helped them to cope much better than their less evolved dinosaur relatives.

"Birds evolved through a unique phase of sustained miniaturisation in dinosaurs," Mr Lee said.

"Being smaller and lighter in the land of giants, with rapidly evolving anatomical adaptations, provided these bird ancestors with new ecological opportunities, such as the ability to climb trees, glide and fly.

"Ultimately, this evolutionary flexibility helped birds survive the deadly meteorite impact which killed off all their dinosaurian cousins."
