Actually, a good dose of Science is pretty mind altering. You should try it some time.

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.
You mean those mean old 2% of the population who are atheists forcing atheism on everyone else? When did they start taking churches to court for not teaching atheism?

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?
Nope, they call that evolution. Hence why the fossil record demonstrates fish, then amphibians, then reptiles, then monotremes, then mammals. In that order. Just as evolution would expect.

The validity of evolution hasn't been an issue since the discovery of DNA at the very latest.

Evolution is pseudo-science. Darwin was delusional. No DNA evidence for speciation unless it's artificial and no one has observed a speciation event.
Wow. You set out to be as totally wrong as you possibly could and you succeeded in amazing fashion.

Yeah, the Earth is really flat. All those pics of the Earth are paintings and photoshop. All the videos are special effects.

Can't really argue with that, eh?

Why do creatards automatically assume that people who know and understand the theory of evolution are against God?
In the U.S. most people who believe the theory of evolution are Christians. They don't believe the nonsense parts of Christianity, but they are still Christians. Heck, I bet even Justsayin does not believe anywhere near all of the Bible.
Excellent point, totally agree (except for the unnecessary, albeit humorous slur). I know many engineers and scientists who believe in God. Many of them don't necessarily believe in all aspects of the Catholic Church or the Bible, but they quietly respect those who do.

Ironically the crux and huge, glaring, flaw of religion. They are claiming to know what the possible god is, how it behaves, and what it wants, yet all that is impossible without any evidence.

He didn't even mention God in that post, he said Adam and Eve. And yes, actually we can and have used the scientific method to disprove Adam and Eve. The last major human genetic bottleneck was towards the end of the last ice age at around 10,000 years ago, world population approximately 100,000 if I recall. Humanity does not go back to 2 people and 2 people only, nor 8 people on a really big boat.

Unless you say evidence doesn't matter and God fixed it all with magic. To which we say...

Who cares?(shrug)

What's more, if we say there is a being out there that creates universes in its spare time for lulz is that it makes it impossible for any one person on the face of the entire planet to know any more about such a being than anyone else could.

After all, we all have access to the same old book that mentions talking lizards and donkeys. And none of us have access to the alleged multiverse in which it resides.

Guy? My vagina says otherwise, pal. Okay. So you don't believe in Adam and Eve. Cool. What evidence do you have to disprove that exactly? I'm curious.
Why are you asking for evidence when evidence is superfluous to one whose position is Goddidit with magic? We CAN disprove certain claims, but we can't disprove invisible Jewish magic to fix everything. In which case we can make up any old BS and say it's valid because invisible Jewmagic.
