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.

Yes, that is the one :) The audacity of those who were trying to scam their way into making that a legal course appalled me. It is a wonder that the USA has education at all with those types sitting on the school boards.

In your opinion, Eagle, how is fraud in science detected and debunked? Is it by the Scientific Method or perhaps because Jimmy Swaggart had a vision?

silly rabbits, tricks are for kids, there is no life after death, no god, not even jc the man, get over it folks, and take responsibility for your actions, towards each other, and the planet we all live on. We may never have a social utopia between men, but from what I understand of the known Universe, there is no other planet that sustains the diversity of life as we know it.This is not some waiting area for a better place, this is all we have.

There has been fraud in any possible place that a human could imagine, and especially in the preaching of the Bible. That does not mean that science has not made many discoveries that are accurate, and if it hadn't we would not be sitting at a computer having these debates today.
Evolution is not just a theory but has been proved, and there are several, but not many examples in the world today, where the very same animal can be found in two different environments exhibiting different traits. one of these is a case where the same animal in one environment lays eggs from which its young are hatched, while in a different environment the babies are born as are humans, full or at least partially developed, but not inside an egg. The explanation that was given concerning that example was that due to a harsher environment that one group of these animals were exposed to it had retained a safer means of producing its young. I can't give the exact details nor the place now, as though it did occur, I can't recall where I found that information.
You are presenting a cartoon version of evolution, and no evolutionist or scientist is presenting evolution in the ways you describe. A wolf didn't run over a river and turn into a whale or vice versa, however you described it. Yes, animals that we see today did evolve from a primitive form, over many millions of years, but it didn't occur the way you indicated.
Before you laugh at proven facts, perhaps you should get some education yourself. Nothing in the Bible, relating to God, miracles, raisings from the dead, or any other supernatural event, has ever been proved, nor has any evidence of such ever been found. All of the things you might believe came from books which have no known evidence to substantiate.

Atheist are narcissistic and will always reach into their bag of prepackaged responses. One of their favorites is,“You need to get an education.” Just remember the source from which it comes from, an egotist, self-absorbed, self centered, conceited, underachiever, anti-socialist, selfish and vain individual.

If you are sure there's no life after death that would mean you have died at some point and time and came back to life to tell us.
How long were you dead? A couple of days? What brought you back to life Frankenstein? Electricity?

<quoted text>Not only would eternal life be unpleasant, I see it as an actual hell. Every goal that you ever wanted to achieve would be realized, everything you ever desired would be realized, and then what? Another thousand years to look forward to, and then another million, and what will you now do with every goal you ever wanted fulfilled? No matter what you aspire to, no matter how many goals you could think of, all would be fulfilled and you'd be left with NOTHING. An endless string of nothing, millions of years with nothing, this is the true hell, and comically this is what Theists live and breath for, pitiful. As Woody Allen once said, "eternity is a really long time, especially toward the end."

I can tell you this they don't use satellite tracking. They don’t carry a magnetic ship compass.

There internal navigation system is superior than anything man has created. Which leads me to believe they were purposely designed that way. And please spare me the song and dance that evolution did it.

I was hoping you would tell me that you died for several days and dug yourself out of a grave. And that’s how you know there’s no life after death.

You’re like me, you have never died, yet. That means you are just making an assumption. That assumption is not based on a real death experience.

It's no real surprise that most creation believers are nearly illiterate, and definitely scientifically illiterate.

You really are thick,In the spring, the pre-migratory state is characterized by a change in neural centers in the lower part of the brain controlling hunger so that the bird gains weight by overeating.

This increased energy income, as much as 40% more than during other times of the year, is stored as large fat deposits under the skin, in flight muscles, and in the abdominal cavity.The pre-migratory state is also characterized by increased activity during the night, which is when most birds migrate. They become restless, perhaps in anticipation of the migratory flight. This behavior is seldom observed in the wild, but has been carefully evaluated in captive migrants.

The adaptation of migrants to the day length is amazing. Consider the trans-equatorial migrant Bobolink. This species initiates pre-migratory preparation under decreasing day lengths in the southern hemisphere, migrates northward toward the equator, experiencing lengthening day lengths, then crosses the equator and experiences rapidly increasing day length until it finally arrives on its previous year's territory.

That birds, many plants, and other animals depend upon day length to regulate their annual cycles is not surprising. Of all the variables in the environment, only seasonal day length variation has remained constant since the formation of the planet because of the Earth's rotation around the Sun.

Birds have also evolved by responding to other stimulus, such as temperature. Thus, when spring is late birds do not arrive too early; similarly, when spring is advanced the birds arrive early to take advantage of the abundant environmental resources.

Non-migratory predators such as the Great-horned owl breed late in the Canadian winter, so that their chicks are old enough to hunt the newly returning birds and their young.The change in the magnetic poles, in seasonal change also help in the guidance of the birds.
