Atheism requires as much faith as religion?

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.

A group subordinate to a genus and containing individuals AGREEING in some COMMON attributes and called by a common name.

Let me guess, for purposes of your religion, that definition is wrong? So different types of mosquitos explains the evolution of a fish into a human being?
LOL, that's why I love to see the arguments you atheists put forth in order to hang on to your myth. Its funnier than heck!
Sure, close enough.

Now, if you understand what's wrong with the species concepts - there's more than one - and you start to understand what genes are and how they work, you'll get closer to understanding biological science and species change.

Nope. Shall I repeat? ID is not based on evidence-based theory.
So far, you've posted a bunch of silly opinion pieces, each of which have been panned by scientists. They slipped through the peer review process, some avoided it through corrupt editors, others at the wrong conference - but not a single one, not a single one draws a hypothesis from a theory and tests that.
Nope. All the ones you've posted so far are cherry picked and poorly interpreted literature reviews.
So yes, I'm correct on this point. It's not surprising that you aren't - you're reading junk that pretends to be science rather than science itself. Even if you were as intelligent as me, you'd still be reading material that isn't teaching you one iota about science.
But then, if you were as smart as me, you'd stop reading that and starting actually and honestly thinking.

Read this and see if it qualifies as looking at evidence. It is published by ID researcher Douglas Axe. Again, see if he relies on any "evidence":
"An alignment of homologous domain sequences is used to deduce the pattern of hydropathic constraints along chains that form the domain fold. Starting with a weakly functional sequence carrying this signature, clusters of ten side-chains within the fold are replaced randomly, within the boundaries of the signature, and tested for function. The prevalence of low-level function in four such experiments indicates that roughly one in 10(64) signature-consistent sequences forms a working domain."
Is Dr. Axe looking at evidence, or is he looking at stars?
It appears to me he is studying "evidence".
Which means you are a fucking liar.
See? Incapable of having a normal discussion - you're weak minded.

First, no, I didn't lie. You didn't post that one.

Second, no, I didn't lie. Axe carries out experiments, sure, but doesn't have an evidence based theory. Rather, he has goal based research. Axe is saying "I want to show that this cannot evolve, so I will carefully do bad research design to produce my conclusions."

Third, even if he was correct, which he is not, he would still be confusing correlation with causation. There's no getting around that in ID, retardoBuck. Hence, excretementface, you keep not addressing that very serious problem. Hence the ID people avoid talking about it.

Just keep avoiding the main critique, scumBuck. Do whatever you can to never address the logical problems ID has, moronoboy. Just continue publishing extracts of poorly done work from the Discovery Institute that you haven't actually read in full.

(that's called 'alliteration'. You've never heard of it.)
There are no such things as "pro-Darwinian journals."

What's the framework theory of all biological science, Buck? What's it called? Evolution!

duuuuuuuh

Yes, excretementbrain, I've given you all kinds of logical critiques that you've run and hid from. So then you just attack like above. You're an incompetent thinker - but don't stop! Everyone here is enjoying watching you display your idiocy. It's pure spectacle.

Is it an argument to claim people who believe in creationism might also support ID?
Then, would it not also be an argument to claim that people who believe in Scientology, Sasquatch, and crop circles support Darwinian evolution?
Does that make Darwinian evolution Scientology?
You're out of your league, Junior.
Admittedly, DS is lowering himself quite a bit to engage with you. Your illogical positions baffle the thinking mind.

Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:

Matthew 24:34
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.

Mark 13:30
Verily I say unto you, that this generation shall not pass, till all these things be done.

Luke 21:32
Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass away, till all be fulfilled.

When the stars start falling from the sky and the moon stops giving off her light, we are in big trouble!!!

Notice The Floods ? Watch The Tornado Outbreaks...Notice The Muslim Brotherhood Taking Over The Middle East ?

Its Too Bad...A Few Of You Are Comical Enough TO LIke. I Hate To See What Is In Store For All Of Us.

There Is A Scripture That Says, " Unless These Days Be Shortened, No Man Would Be Found Alive "

The Temple Is Being Built In Israel...Why Do You Think The Muslims Want Israel Gone With America ?

Muslims Want To Speed The Prophecy Along...So They Can Be Dissappointed With Their 70 Virgins Being Transvestites.

They could raffle off three ways at the playboy mansion and Mormon Mitt won't take Pennsylvania. Doesn't surprise me the neocon losers pulling this though.
