A moth does not fly into the fire thinking I'm going to burn. The moth still burns. And those sitting around the camp fire can see the moth and try and talk them out of it but the moth flys into the fire anyways.
I see you're still fantasizing about the eternal torture of people who disagree with you. You must be a humanitarian!

I'll let you figure it out. Everyone outside of the ark died. Now think hard.
Everyone inside the Ark died too. Unless of course they had that impulse drive.

Your personal incredulity is irrelevant. The evidence is convincing to scientists. The reason being the evidence passes scientific testing.

The evidence is not convincing.
And that's not personal incredulity.
You literally have none.
You guys show me no evidence of evolution, except say evolution is proven by scientists. Now if I find out you're a atheist, you're the stupidest person alive!!!

Actually you're both wrong. Nothing can be proven (scientifically speaking) as it can never be demonstrated to be 100% accurate. If the concept is scientific, there is ALWAYS the possibility, now matter how small, that it MIGHT be falsified later on as new evidence is discovered. This is what separates science from dogma.

So far though evolution has been demonstrated scientifically. Creationism has not.

I don't say evolution is "proven", no. Proof is ONLY for math and alcohol.

What I CAN do is show that evolution has been demonstrated by scientists:

Atheism is irrelevant to me. However some atheists are smart. Some are not. Like Skippy the Skeptic for example.

Yup. I guess that means all scientists are always wrong. Yet here you are typing away on your computer.

However to err CONSTANTLY is to be Chuck Idemi.

Once again, show us the evidence. I am sure that everyone would be very excited to see it.

This would be a Nobel Prize worthy achievement so you can understand our excitement.

Actually I've looked, but never found anything.

Neither have creationists, since I ask them all the time. And EVERY single time they don't bother to provide any.

By the way, what atheist were you referring to?

If you want people to believe your nonsense you need to come up with evidence, not stupid metaphors. There is no evidence that supports your beliefs. There is no more evidence for Christianity than there is for the beliefs of Hindus, Muslims, Shinto, or even Pastafarianism.
Yes there is.
