Why would I, you dumb hater?
I had a job in Midrand and have visited several countries in Africa.

At least you didn't capitalise your latest straw man.

I don't want my children one day to learn evolution in school. But what am I gonna do about it. If I can deal with this Evolution crap in school, you can deal with this so called "Religious dogma" in school.
We do not have 'faith' in evolution we have evidence for it.

Tsk tsk!:-/

Appeal to faith argument
(e.g., if you have no faith, you cannot learn) if the arguer relies on faith as the bases of his argument, then you can gain little from further discussion. Faith, by definition, relies on a belief that does not rest on logic or evidence. Faith depends on irrational thought and produces intransigence.

Religious dogma?
So saith Miriam Webster.

Main Entry: dog·ma
Pronunciation:\&#712;d &#559;g-m&#601;, &#712;däg-\
Function: noun
Inflected Form(s): plural dog·mas also dog·ma·ta \-m&#601;-t&#601;\
Etymology: Latin dogmat-, dogma, from Greek, from dokein to seem — more at decent
Date: 1638
1 a : something held as an established opinion ; especially : a definite authoritative tenet b : a code of such tenets <pedagogical dogma> c : a point of view or tenet put forth as authoritative without adequate grounds 2 : a doctrine or body of doctrines concerning faith or morals formally stated and authoritatively proclaimed by a church

Scientific ignorance is no excuse there's plenty of available data.

Appeal to ignorance argument
(argumentum ex silentio) appealing to ignorance as evidence for something.(e.g., We have no evidence that God doesn't exist, therefore, he must exist. Or: Because we have no knowledge of alien visitors, that means they do not exist).

Ignorance about something says nothing about its existence or non-existence.

The greater the feeling of inferiority that has been experienced, the more powerful is the urge to conquest and the emotional agitation leads to the narcissism that defines you so well.

I do find you entertaining Patrick in the perverse sort of way.

A religious troll in atheist forums that is so totally obsessed with himself he is compelled to respond to anything that has his name in it.

We pull the strings... and theists dance till the fat lady sings. She hasn't shut up in years so you keep dancing and dancing.

That's what I call entertainment.

You remind me of a goldfish aimlessly wandering in circles all day.

I didn't mean that literally. Stupid Atheists. I meant if science did choose(they won't) BUT IF THEY DID CHOOSE TO SAY WE ARE PART OF THE WHALE FAMILY then you would believe it.
You're pretty stupid. Nothing magically created us. I'm just going to make a Android appear in my hand out of thin air lol.
Again with the crediting me with what I have not said, but you did say that >>> "Science can turn around and call us humans part of the whale family and you would believe it.".

I have not once claimed that nothing magically created us, those are your thoughts, your words. And btw ..... just in case you didn't manage to see it the first time I posted it >>> "Science is held to certain standards of proof."

After the Android, you can try burning a bush, parting the Red Sea or maybe turn some water into wine

What is the force behind creative thought?
The constant flow that drives our Imagination, our Intelligence even for higher learning and understanding.
Where does it come from?

Lol, that makes me a hater. I remember in school when a English school toured my country. The first thing they said is "Where are the lions." For those dumb Americans and Europeans that haven't been to Africa, they most probably think I live in a village.

You're a hater because you previously posted that all Atheists are despicable.
I've never said that about all believers.

I live in a village. What's your point?

Atheism an old philosophy of some merit, examined by the Greeks thousands of years ago.
Many atheists prove to be agnostics or Christians having a bad day.:-)
Over a good cup of coffee the discussion usually moves on to great films -Good Will Hunting, Dead Poet Society.- Radio Days- Casablanca
Since no one can prove atheism the arguments tend to be circular thus people lose interest
