My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

Evolution is proven and continues to be proven, not a single piece of evidence against it.
Like I said, most people accept evolution, even religious people, but evolution MUST have a starting point, and you refuse to tell me where it is!

You don't argue your theory very well!

I know that mammals weren't "created" and are the product of a long evolution, But how life itself came to be? Where did it start? There is no such thing as evolution from nowhere.

Unless you can answer this question, you shouldn't dismiss the possibility that some sort of superior intelligence could be at the origin of the universe.

It atheists cannot answer this question, they have no case, just a hatred of people who seek an answer.

You religious liars have no evidence of god, since the beginning of recorded history.

Stupidity is no excuse for arguing back. You need to sit down and accept reality, Creationist Cult Member.
Where's your evidence of evolution. Where's your evidence on how the universe came from nothing.

How dumb do you have to be to believe that?
You're religious, right?
How dumb are you to believe that there's more atheists.
You're a atheist, right?

All we get from you is just aggression and name-calling when you are cornered.

What is at the origin of evolution?

Answer that instead of being just another pompous a$$.

I got it now ! To become an Atheist I have to believe that everything came from nothing,That the Universe itself was an accident, That the universe is full of chaos caused by that accident, That all our galaxies were accidents, that all the predictable actions of the known universe was caused by an accident , That our solar system was caused by an accident, The laws of our universe were caused by an accident, Life was created by an accident, that Evolution was an accident and that every single thing in the Universe had no reason and purpose ! Up Until we came along of course and gave it some meaning ! How illogical can you be !!!!!!!!

When you have evidence of god, then you get to spread your ridiculous cult fantasy.

The earth simply isn't 3000 years old, there's no such thing as god, and your cut is a joke.

Get over it.

Evolution doesn't have to answer to anybody, because its a fact. You deniers have no evidence against it.

If somebody slapped you with a fossil, you would feel that, because it's that real.

We must care for mentally ill folk like you who deny the world in which they live in and the factual origins of where they came from.

Creationists Cult members are simply liars who have proven that they cannot be trusted in any kind of conversation.

You are deluded idiots at the end of the day, that surround each other, trying to validate your own sick fantasies.

Look at yourselves, you deny reality so much that you try to pick fights with scientists just doing their jobs.

Get a life and take a look carefully at your faith based mental illness.

It is not the problem of Atheists that you are too ignorant to not know the evidence for evolution.

You can't deny something just because you yourself aren't smart enough.

Once again, you have not any precise idea of what science is. As long as God isn't of any physical, chemical or any sensitive experimment, God cannot be of scientific field.

Nobody wants you to become an atheist, and personnaly speaking, I let peoples have their own point of view, which isn't your attitude, you don't even allow doubt so that I find somehow quite fascist.
I always oppose peoples which want to impose their point of view, therefore you are the worse God defender.

As well as for the observed trend of belief of God in western societies, I take it as a negative trend as long as morality laws included in religious feelings isn't replaced by high ethic.

Question is rather "what is origin of life ?" because origin of evolution rely on changing life conditions, as we know that we live on a changing planet, thus life has to evolve to fit whith changing environment.

Jim since you seem to be a man of science, there are a few questions I would like to ask you to ease my mind :) By what scientific method do you suggest to use to date fossils and the age of the earth ? As you know there are many that have been proven to have major flaws !, Secondly we know Evolution has had some success but why has it not been proven in human beings, I know and I am sure you are aware that of all the human like looking apes that have been found over the years that not one human bone whatsoever has ever been found in any of them ? Do you think as I do, That instead of having to find one missing link it is more than likely that they would have to find at least a couple of hundred missing links at different stages before they can add man to the list of Evolutionary successes ?

Actually, to be an atheist, all you have to do is have a lack of belief in deities.

This isn't that complicated.

So no one can successfully argue against my point about the theory of Evolution being a sign of a divine planner, I take it ! Insults and vague comments are NOT real arguments they are just a sign of naivety !
If divine planner has to experiment and improve its creatures, as we see considering the tree of evolution that have its dead branches and dead end streets, your so-called divine planner is far from being infallible.
Believing in evolution and thinking that God's labs produced the Neanderlalians, then launched the Cro-magnons because the former model wasn't that satisfying, that's more than naive, that's stupidlidly contradictive with a presumed divine planner.

To me, it's having a sense of good or bad which doesn't rely on some fear of humane or divine trial

I asked you a simple question and you cannot answer it.

Apart from your aggression, you don't seem to have the intellectual capability to debate on a subject such as belief.

I never pretended that the earth was 3000 years old; I know that the universe is probably millions of years old - that's what the scientists tell us.

But even evolution has an origin; there is no evolution from nothing. That is also a scientific principle.

So, instead of pretending that you are superior and everyone else is stupid,. just answer the simple question; where does it all come from?

I cannot provide you with an evidence of god; I can only communicate my doubts.

But you, who vehemently deny its existence, cannot answer a simple question.
If you cannot, just stop your attacks on people who seek an answer.
You are a fraud...

But many believers and agnostics know about evolution, and that the simplest form of life was probably an amoeba which appeared millions of years ago.

Amoeba from which all other forms of living creatures EVOLVED from.
But where the amoeba cane from?

How inert matter transformed itself in living cells? Where their intelligence came from?
Can you answer that?

Even the origins of the universe cannot only be explained by the big bang.
You cannot have an explosion out of nothing, so where the matter came from?

So, why don't you tell us where it's all come from?
