Ah, the myth of Atheist obligation.<quoted text>
What's the alternative?
The creation story in Genesis is clearly a myth. We can't have day and night without a sun, and plants can't grow without one. Snakes can't talk.
That story is dismissed. That doesn't obligate me to explain how the universe did begin.
So what?Let's look at the atheist's favorite fairy tale, Darwin's brainstorm, called the theory of evolution. Say you're making a giraffe. The necessary mutation would be a long neck for eating leaves. But first the giraffe has to be a pre-giraffe because a long neck isn't going to help a pre-lion who eats meat, or a pre-zebra who eats grass. The long neck mutation is only useful to an animal that already lives under trees, who is already trying to reach higher leaves before the mutation. But wait, if the pre-giraffe couldn't reach the leaves before the mutation, why the freak was it there in the first place? Was it just hanging around wistfully looking up at leaves waiting for a mutation? If this sounds ridiculous, it is! The combination of specific mutation and specific environment is so unlikely that even God couldn't make sense of it. LMAO!
I don't know the details of how giraffes came to be. You'll always be able to come up with something I can't explain. You might want to take a science class to understand evolution, and quit copy/pasting from creation "science" sites.
But I do know the story in the Buy-bull is absurd, so I reject it.
