Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

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.

Well... who do you think disagreed with discussing the square root of minus one?

I *really* hope you are joking. Yes, we went to the moon. The technology was there. The desire was there. The build up was there. The direction of the signals was there. The infrastructure was there.
Let's face it. If the moon landings were faked, the Soviet Union would have touted that to the world. They would have been able to tell from the direction of signals, just as *amateur* radio operators were.
Speaking of I learned in the early 60s the Russians bounced radio signals off the moon to fool us into thinking they had people orbiting the moon , and that they may have sent some cosmonauts to their death in the first attempts to put men in space
because they had no idea how to make a reentry work.
They say they even went as far as air brushing some of them out of pictures to cover it up. Brave Russian died and got not even the credit for it.

I would say that the starting point is the observation that there is a consistent sequence of layers and a corresponding consistent sequence of fossil animals, plants, molds, pollens, etc. Also, the observation that certain plants, animals, and/or chemical properties only appear in certain layers.
It is the consistent sequence that gives the *relative* dates: which things are older and which are younger. So even without absolute dates (exact ages), we can still see how species change over time, how geological processes work, etc. We can even use the characteristic fossils to get relative dates.
The absolute dates typically (not always) come from radioactive analysis of igneous layers. We can then use the relative dates obtained from the sequencing to get ranges of absolute dates for the other layers.
Now, a person working *today*, after all the hard work of finding the sequences, finding the characteristic fossils, finding the absolute dates, etc has been done, can look at a particular layer and the fossils in it and get a pretty reliable date. More accuracy can be had if there are local igneous layers that can be dated more accurately.
So during this research, do you guys find any signs of evolutionary transition taking place with the fossils?

Of course there is a difference: having a religion is having a set group of people that tell you what to do. Having a relationship with God is having an imaginary friend.
I agree with your first statement, but of course we will just have to agree to disagree with your last one...:)

Then why can't the smartest in science create an offspring between species that can reproduce?

Hmm, ok.

Are they documented records of this transition? As in fish to land animal, etc etc... You know the ones Darwin spoke of?
