Do you Atheists know how much faith it takes to believe in Evolution. I've constantly heard Atheists say Religious people believe by faith with no evidence by their side. Yet, evolution has no evidence.

It has never been observed. The fact that it's never been observed proves that Evolution is just a theory. That's why it's called the THEORY of Evolution. There is a difference between theory and fact.

Fact is definite. Theory is what we think.

The same with the big bang. It's called The Big Bang theory because once again, it's just a theory, it's what Scientists think happened. Now proof for God.

Atheists believe a single cell, a single cell smaller than atom, randomly made everything to sustain life. First of all where did that cell come from?

Also, when I take a look at Earth, I see the beauty. The beautiful ocean, the unique and just incredible animals that climb the trees of the Amazon.

All the amazing different types of fish and creatures in the deep blue sea. The beauty. The wild lands of Africa. Lions and Wildebeests. The different types of unique animals that we see. And all this to be owned by us, Humans.

This beautiful, incredible unique planet of ours was surely created by a God. Atheists are telling me, this UNIQUE planet of ours was made by a cell smaller than atom. 1cell that small, can't make this just, amazing planet we call home. This amazing universe.

God planned this universe perfectly

How much faith does it take for a Atheist to believe a single cell came from nothing then made a world of order. How much faith it takes to believe something that happened millions of years ago. How much faith it takes to believe something that happened billions of years ago(The Big bang).

Atheists say I believe by faith, they have a hell lot more faith than me.

Evolution's a fact - you may f*ck off back to your backward cult of ignorance now.

It's a theory. It hasn't been proven yet, it's just a educated guess.

There is this funny thing about evidence. When it's present there's no pretense, no wishcraft, no faith of any kind needed. Same with gods, present them and the evidence will suddenly outweigh faith. Imagine that .... proving a god, any god. Now try to comprehend this. Evidence is proof, faith is just silly wishcraft.

Evolution is backed up by millions of pieces of proof.

The same old creationist godbot lies which have been dis-proven time and time again.

And you wonder why we think you are dumb as a rock.

What do you mean "evolution is a fact"?

There are at least 10 definitions of "evolution" in scientific literature.

Do you mean they are all "fact"?

Even the evolutionists who do the science don't even claim they are all "fact".

But you're more informed, I guess.

You yap-jawed moron.

Creationist Claim CB910:

No new species have been observed.

Response:

New species have arisen in historical times. For example:

A theory is not the OPPOSITE of a fact, as you claim here. They are just two separate things.

Evolution is BOTH a theory and a fact.

it;s a FACT that species evolve.

And the Theory of Evolution is the detailed, well-supported EXPLANATION of the mechanisms of how that happens.

I suspect you have had this explained to you many times and you are just bored and lonely and trolling for reactions. LOL

Theories do not become facts. Theories EXPLAIN facts. This statement makes it sound like once a theory has enough evidence, it becomes a fact. Not the way it works.

You are confused as to what facts and theories are. A theory does not grow up to be a fact. It always remains a theory and facts always remain facts.

Theories do not become facts. Theories EXPLAIN facts. Your statement makes it sound like once a theory has enough evidence, it becomes a fact. Not the way it works.

Here's a fact: A fossilized bone fragment, K/Ar dated to this age with a margin of error of this much was found at this GPS location on this date. That's a fact. It's not a theory. It's simply a fact.

A theory explains the relationship between groups of facts.

In scientific terms, a "theory" is not a conjecture or a vague guess. It is a complete, detailed unifying explanation of a large set of facts. "Theory" is as high as it gets in science.

Saying "evolution is just a theory" is like saying "Bill Gates is just a multi-billionaire."

It is legitimate to say "evolution is just a theory".

The reason it is legitimate is because people in this forum refer to the theory of evolution as "fact", not just a proposed explanation of facts.

Theories explain facts. Facts also explain facts. When someone characterizes the proposed explanation of facts as a fact, they are over-stating it.

Thus, one proper response to "evolution is a fact" is "evolution is just a theory".

Proponents want to bolster the power of the overall theory by alluding to the fact of certain incidences of evolution, and using the two interchangeably in discourse.

Some do it ignorantly. Others are just dishonest.

Science doesn't require faith, that's why you ignorant people are worried and have to keep your cult members from becoming educated.

In one sentence they say the world is perfect, in another they compare Atheists to Hitler.

Let's ask why Stalin, Hitler and others even exists in this "perfect world"

And we will hear nothing but silence from the religious liars.

The only reason you know about amazing creatures on this planet, is because scientists explored he world and discovered them based on evididence.

But it is this very same evidence you reject, when it comes to confronting your god-myth.

You can judge yourself all you like, but you're ignorant and have no evidence that god is real.

Nobody is fooled by your childish cult buck.

Ok. What I will say will prove Evolution.

There were Apes and there were humans many years ago. They both looked like each other. Therefore, Humans came from Apes!!!

That's what Atheists call evidence. That's what Evolutionists call Theory.
