<quoted text>Yes, it is far more silly. my argument shows all the evidence that points to the religious cults being myths. they are full of proven lies, their gods are just re-hashed from previous myths. their gods have human traits showing they were created by humans...

need more? your only argument is that you cannot disprove a myth.
Evidence? So you can disprove the existence of God using the scientific method? I don't seek to prove anything. My opinion is my own. I don't need your permission to have it. Nor does it require your approval. You sure as hell have no room to judge it. Especially when you cannot use the scientific method to disprove the existence of God. At the end of the day all you can do is disagree with it. Which makes absolutely no difference to me.

please provide evidence how the bee orchid evolved to mimic a female bee. Or did the bee evolved to look like the orchid. What is it, which came first? You have a paradox here.
why wouldn't a flower evolve to look like a bee? perfect example of evolution at work!

just like the Samurai crab, or millions of other examples..

i can certainly judge cults that lead people on through proven lies.

<quoted text>how do atheists force their views on the public?
Seriously?! You're going to sit there and deny ridiculing and condemning theists for nothing other than being theists? You're gonna sit there and deny accusing all theists of being ignorant fundies who seek only to persecute and otherwise harm their fellow man? You're gonna sit there and deny blaming the sins of the few on the many? You're gonna sit there and deny your desire to rob millions of their constitutional right to the freedom of religion just because you don't agree with it? You're gonna sit there and say that you don't discriminate against theists in the scientific community no matter how brilliant they may be? You're gonna sit there and deny questioning their objectivity when you yourself, as an atheist, refuses to view the beliefs of others with the same objectivity? Irregardless of the fact that you cannot, in fact, use the scientific method to disprove the existence of the very God they believe in? Give me a break.

Could you imagine living in a world without magic? Where everything is analytical and logical and utterly boring? God forbid!

Granted. Though not every theist is a brain washed cult member. It is possible to have faith in God and not be a part of such ridiculousness. At the same time, I fail to see how you can judge that which you don't even believe in to begin with. Or disprove using the scientific method. Where's the logic in that?

Ummm i believe that many religius cults exist...hellooo!

it does take a little braiwashing to believe in something that there is no evidence for, doesn't it? especially when most people who say they are not religious but believe in god then go on to use the religous dogma almost verbatim...that may not be you, but it is hte norm.

Where is the logic in evolution? I can tell which ones are made up. They have a mountain of lies. There is real science, and there are theories with no real evidence.

They don't believe in magic but they somehow believe fish developed legs and arms, then became amphibians, then reptiles, then mammals. They don't call that magic?

And yet still no proof, using the scientific method, to disprove the existence of said "magic". Your opinion is just that. Opinion. It is not fact.

So what does that make you? Especially when you cannot use the scientific method to disprove the existence of God. All you have is your opinion. Not fact. Not proof. Opinion. Does that make you brainwashed?

What else would they have to argue about then? I'm just glad their narrow mindedness isn't the status quo or else we would all be screwed...not in a good way either. ;)

Evolution is pseudo-science. Darwin was delusional. No DNA evidence for speciation unless it's artificial and no one has observed a speciation event.
