Then you are astoundingly progressive for a creationist. However, it is indeed the creationist argument that Adam and Eve were "genetically perfect."

As I've heard it, the running hypothesis/delusion is that because of their perfect genes (presumably from being directly created by God, I suppose), they and their children were able to inbreed without any adverse effects. After the Fall, the genome started degrading, and has been 'devolving' into random noise ever since.

If that sounded like nonsense to you, then your BS radar might still be functioning.

Atheists are well-behaved and we seem to play well with others overall.

Atheists are not in the news, like the Christian right, for getting caught doing things they tell others not to do. You know…those nasty little sexual things.

Atheists almost always co-exist peacefully with religious believing family and friends.

Atheists pay taxes just like the religious believers do.

Atheists are waaay under represented in jails and prisons…we’re actually pretty moral people.

Atheists don’t start wars on behalf of atheism…unlike religion.

They do join the military however, and contrary to clichéd belief, they are found in foxholes.

Atheists believe strongly in America and the whole American Constitution, but particularly the First Amendment that separates church and state.

Atheists are secularists who support a government free from influence by any religion. We are not anti-religious, we are Non-Religious.

Atheists don’t take up a lot of space. The non-religious/atheist/agnostic members of American society only add up to a little less than 18% of the whole population…but we are growing.

Atheists make good neighbors. Chances are, if you live next door, or work with an atheist, you will never know it.

Atheists in general, are much more supportive of women’s rights and for their right to control their own bodies and lives without church or state interference.

Unlike the religious right people, atheists don’t like to get into other peoples business and dictate how they should live….what they should do or not do. You know…like who you should marry.

Atheists are not known for going door-to-door to convert people to our way of thinking. We are however, known to help our friends and neighbors with no thought of there being a heavenly reward in it for us.

Unlike many of the present Republican presidential candidates and the religious right in general Atheists do not advocate or align themselves with groups who want to take over our government and reshape America into a religiously ruled theocracy…you know, kinda’ like the Middle Eastern Islamic states.

Atheists, unlike the Republican Right, the Tea-Party, and the religious right, do not go around with guns in meetings and say the President will never take their guns away, or wishing the president would fail and generally disrespecting the President and the office. Or call him ni_ger behind his back.

Atheists mostly do know a lot about religion, as many were raised in a religious family, and they tend to research and know their positions really well. In recent national polling about religious knowledge, atheists knew more than any religious sub-group.

Hmmm…could it be…could the atheists actually be better citizens and better people to know than theists??? I know I never disrespect, with malice, someone for believing the ‘wrong thing’…I just like to get into friendly arguments/debates with them.

And remember…Atheism cures religious terrorism

Yet we have the same spirit of faith as he had who wrote, I have believed, and therefore have I spoken. We too believe, and therefore we speak.
2 Corinthians 4: 13

But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Hebrews 11: 6

Therefore we conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law.
Romans 3: 28

So Jesus said to them,“Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain,‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. Matthew 17: 20

I don't see how we can escape, though.
We have learned that science has made discoveries that seem to contradict the stories in the Bible.
Is there some way that science can be proven wrong?
Or is there some way that scientific discoveries could be reconciled with the Bible?
Please answer me quick because I'm scared!
We should fear and tremble if we have supported the father of lies and the spirits of sin. True science will confirm the Holy Bible and yes, there will be a judgement where the souls who have rejected salvation through Jesus will weep and nash.

Free Servant, I stopped trying to have an intelligent conversation with these atheists, I followed Solomon's advice where he says do not argue with a fool in his folly lest you make him wise in his own eyes.
We realise that intelligent conversations are difficult with cultists like you. Solomon was wisely trying to point that out to us.

Boy are you confused!!
Switching on or off genes is mutation
Mutating would fall under growing gills something our kind doesn't have at all.
Pointed ears or brown eyes is not a mutation.
Time to go back to school.
Mutation 101, the fantastic four. X-Men
Mutation:

A change in the structure of the genes or chromosomes of an organism. Mutations occurring in the reproductive cells, such as an egg or sperm, can be passed from one generation to the next. Most mutations occur in junk DNA and have no discernible effects on the survivability of an organism. Of the remaining mutations, the majority have harmful effects, while a minority can increase an organism's ability to survive. A mutation that benefits a species may evolve by means of natural selection into a trait shared by some or all members of the species.

http://science.yourdictionary.com/mutation

Mutation is Not about suddenly growing gills. Its any change in the DNA sequence, anything from a tiny point mutation (single nucleotide change)to a whole gene or chromosome duplication.

Even discussing evolution with someone who learned about mutation by watching X-men movies is a waste of time.

Get a clue on History.
"History had it"? That is a non-statement.

Check your sources.

Lets see if you can do any better for "Christians fed to the lions" than you did for "the existence of Jesus Christ", on which you failed utterly.

Black, white, or green, the whole notion that that had a "perfect genome" is impossible, as there is no such thing even in principle.

There is only fitness to the environment, which is a moving target and is different in different times and places. That is why species differentiate from common ancestral populations in the first place.

There can be no perfect man because nobody can simultaneously be black and white, thickly muscled and wiry and fat and short and tall and risk seeking and risk averse and bookwise and streetwise and relaxed and high strung etc etc and all of these qualities may be advantageous or deleterious in different settings.

Variety, not "perfection", is the spice of life and the strength of a species.

Christians like you can barely conceal their own pride in their extravagant claims that they are base evil creatures who have had the humility and strength to accept this and throw themselves on the mercy of God.

Notwithstanding the fact that their "evil" in most cases is not even worthy of respect, being nothing more than the odd tawdry affair or slipping a couple of hundred from the cash register, perhaps jerking off to a Victoria Secret catalog, or running over the neighbour's dog when drunk.

Such timid, banal, and trivial evil...

While at the same time, they have the incredible conceit that this universe of 10^24 stars and 13.6 billion years, this planet of 10 million species past and present, these mountains and oceans and every tree in the forest and every little microbe were put there JUST FOR THEM, just as a test of their souls. Every event is a SIGN. Who could be more ARROGANT and SELF CENTRED than that????

You guys amaze me.

The Christians never fought the Romans, but from your saying you lack the understanding of what divine intervention is, " atheist ".
No, the Romans fought the Romans. Some believed in Jesus, some believed in Zeus. The new Christian Roman emperor was Christian because Christianity was rising in popularity. He managed to get into power via the usual political dealings and that was it. But then he was deposed and replaced by another emperor who brought back the old theology. Then he was deposed himself by yet another Christian emperor.

And if you think all this was done by swapping apple pies, teddy bears and cuddles then you are seriously deluded.

By the way, what "atheist" were you referring to?
