question 10 ... How do ‘living fossils’ remain unchanged over supposed hundreds of millions of years .... if evolution has changed worms into humans in the same time frame?.. Professor Gould wrote ..“the maintenance of stability within species must be considered as a major evolutionary problem”

You make the presupposition that there is no evidence without admitting you do not have the scientifically measurable evidence to support your position of nothing. You have placed limits on what may be limitless. You have placed limits where they need not be. Thus far I have seen no evidence provided by an atheist that would support what is disingenuously called natural mechanisms only. If you think there isn't evidence of design you would be wrong. Admittedly, this can not be proven using your constricting criteria, but nothing in this arena has been proven using this standard. You know this by now. That is why it is so frustrating to the forum when it's pointed out. Judging by the ever-growing anecdotal evidence of this forum overwhelmingly congregated by atheists, atheism is something else entirely. There is a large contingent of antitheists, a portion devoted to secular humanism, and some interplay with other assorted isms. The common denominator is that every single one of these positions is lacking in evidence. The notion that man is the be all end all is flawed in my opinion. Of course you wish to shirk any burden of proof. That's transparent and shows a weak position. Atheism has been co-opted by the new atheist. Much more vocal and commited to breaking down the populace writ large that actually do have a position. I've given more than enough opportunity for atheists to engage in debate that is not circular. The brilliance and weakness of atheism is no accountability. That's why it's not challenging to debate this topic with you loons. Apologies to the few that aren't driven by more than uncertainty. When Reagan debated Gorbachev on our nuclear arsenals each man had a position. If there was a political debate the political atheist would attack the other position and not have to be responsible for one himself. If one football team was atheist and the other was not they would have the ball on offense the whole game. Fumble, and the ball would be returned. This is what you ask for here, but is unacceptable in every other topic. I'm conservative btw. A rational freethinker. I'm sure you are a centrist LOL. What's the mushy middle ithought on government size, abortion, tax rates?
If there isn't a position don't bother responding. How is the fence DREW, Curious, Mikey,,,,? You got the post wedged good and deep yet? Stump an antitheist! Ask it what it believes. Still going strong 66,370 plus posts in.
Still nothing about atheism in the atheist forum. No position, no post #. Lies, spin, ad hominem, and boredom.
Waiting for an example of what passes the cut for evidence from atheists. Cowards!

question 11 ... How did blind chemistry create mind / intelligence .. meaning .. altruism and morality?... If everything evolved .. and we invented God .. as per evolutionary teaching ... what purpose or meaning is there to human life?... Should students be learning nihilism (life is meaningless) in science classes?

Some of the world's most profoundly gifted thinkers are people who believe there is no God. From geology to philosophy,
professors who are convinced the universe came by accident staff earth's universities.

I don't think lack of mental acumen is the common factor among atheists.
I think they fall into one of three subsets.

1 • There are those who refuse to believe because their hearts are set on self-rule.
Bernard Shaw once insisted: "I don't want there to be a God."
His personal life was devoted to rebellion against all but that which pleased him.

2 • Then there's the stubborn who claim "my mind's made up about God so don't confuse me with any new facts."

3 • Lastly we have the Teachable Unbeliever who says,
"Until now I have not seen any credible evidence for the existence of a Creator."

Recently a retired Hunterdon County scientist, whose specialty was mitochondrial DNA,
introduced me to a leader among the last category.
Oxford University produced a formidable opponent to anyone believing in God ... continue http://www.healthy-elements.com/atheists.html

What a nut job!

Do you know the difference between these two sentences?

1) there is no life anywhere but on earth.

Or the sentence I used...

2) No life found anywhere else.

Think real hard now bobby.....

All these "questions" only demonstrate you know nothing of chemistry, biology, or even physics. You cannot debunk something you know nothing about. How about showing evidence that your go is real?

question 12 ... Why is evolutionary ‘just-so’ story-telling tolerated?... Evolutionists often use flexible story-telling to ‘explain’ observations contrary to evolutionary theory .. NAS (USA) member Dr Philip Skell wrote ..“Darwinian explanations for such things are often too supple:.. Natural selection makes humans self-centered and aggressive .. except when it makes them altruistic and peaceable ... Or natural selection produces virile men who eagerly spread their seed .. except when it prefers men who are faithful protectors and providers ... When an explanation is so supple that it can explain any behavior .. it is difficult to test it experimentally .. much less use it as a catalyst for scientific discovery"
