When South Florida atheists held their first meeting, they were just five friends, having a beer at a bar.

Ah, the myth of Atheist obligation.
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.

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!
So what?
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.

Sciences answers don't belong to you loon. Make up a reasonable, rational, beginning. Those are just words. Even Gould knew sciences arena and limits. Get your meaningless words out of here bigot.

Science knows HOW to some extent, but it doesn't know WHY. The chief "causes" for the orderly evolution of creatures is entirely unknown, which means that science is looking for truth in all the wrong places.
It needs a new superhero to show the way. Stephen Hawkings is a defector. His theories would turn science into another religion. "If the Grand Unification Theory were constructed, then the greatest triumph in human endeavor would be realized. For then we would know the mind of God." - A Brief History of Time - Stephen Hawking.
The narcissistic Richard Dawkins is too busy debating Christians for the publicity to spend any time filling the gaping holes in the theory of evolution.
No. Science needs a hero with the mythical qualities of a "phoenix" to arise out of the ashes of its dead evolution theory, and explain the production of a blade of grass using natural laws ordained by no intention. A magical feat indeed!
The conundrum for science has always been backasswards thinking. From matter backward into energy rather than from energy forward into matter and form. It places the cart before the horse.
Evolution is only an issue for a few fundies. Rational people accept it, look at the evidence.

Good grief you antitheists are bat shit crazy. You have zero evidence that meet your rules for evidence. You post nothing in a forum about nothing. You hate a God you don't believe in. Keep up your convincing nonargument LOL.
In response to your fumbling attacks against believers I offered to debate the evidences/reasons for belief in a prime mover vs any accountable position. Your nothing has never been louder. It's interesting to watch cowards becoome bullies on the internet though.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.
I've tried to get you to debate many, many times, but you won't.
You just copy/paste the same 3 or 4 posts.

Stump John, ask him to debate.

How stump a atheist:

Ask them to list what they do believe in.

I don't debate nothing Rose. Woodtick, freethinkers understand what this forums brand of atheism is about. Hate for a God you don't believe in. Lack of evidence within your limiting rules.

How does Rose decide which is most or least likely based on the evidence? Always was, prime mover, something from nothing. Beat it Rose, you've ALL been exposed.

Nothing Bless

LMAO – didn't know there were 7 states that don't allow atheists to hold public office.(It pays to spend most of my time researching these facts, and less time reading atheist responses, lol.)

Guess if you understood logic, you wouldn't be a fundie.
And I don't know why you fundies get off claiming atheism is a religion.
But...
My lack of belief in your god is no more a religion than your lack of belief in Thor.

But it doesn't take faith to discount the superstitious campfire legends of ancient sheep kissers. It takes reason, hence Atheism is the opposite of religion by your own definitions.

Another day of ineptitude from the antitheists.*Note to lurkers* They have gone almost three years without giving one accountable position they are willing to debate. Three years without an example of evidence that meets their criteria for evidence. These are angry agenda driven folks that don't give a damn about the evidence.
If you want to subject yourself to this farce by all means see for yourself. Antitheists you could also just cut and paste one of the 64,960 posts to show otherwise.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe. True

I've offered to debate John often. But he refuses. He refuses to address the points I bring up, he refuses to give any evidence for god.

Seems like you have already.
You're just a rubber stamp, you bring nothing to the discussion that hasn't been heard a thousand time on here.
Now go away and next time you pipe up on here let's see if you can actually come up with something you've not read your buddy posting a thousand times before.
I could say the same to you, you know.
