A survey published in the 2005 Encyclopedia Britannica stated that 2.3% of the world's population consists of individuals who profess "atheism, skepticism, disbelief, or irreligion, including the militantly antireligious." In regards to the 2.3% figure just mentioned, the 2005 survey cited by Encyclopedia Britannica survey did not include Buddhist in regards to the 2.3% figure and Buddhism can be theistic or atheistic."
Wikipedia:
"Another survey attributed to Britannica shows the population of atheists at around 2.4% of the world's population.[citation needed] It is difficult to determine whether atheism is growing or not"
Wikipedia :
"2005 poll by AP/Ipsos surveyed ten countries. Of the developed nations, people in the United States were most sure of the existence of God or a higher power (2% atheist, 4% agnostic)"
Wikipedia :
"According to one estimate, atheists make up about 2.3% of the world's population"
"In 2007, a Pew Forum survey found that the atheist population in the United States was 1.6% of the American population."
"Global atheism is shrinking and demographic changes in the United States and the world are expected to shrink the influence of American secularism.
In 2012, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary reported that globally every day there are 800 less atheists per day, 1,100 less non-religious (agnostic) people per day and 83,000 more people professing to be Christians per day.
In 2011, the American Spectator declared concerning research published in the International Bulletin of
Missionary Research:
The report estimates about 80,000 new Christians every day, 79,000 new Muslims every day, and 300 fewer atheists every day. These atheists are presumably disproportionately represented in the West, while religion is thriving in the Global South, where charismatic Christianity is exploding."
Your posts are misleading Creationist spam 100%. F*ck off back to your Discovery Institute cult and tell them to take Topix off its database and stop paying you. And get a real job while you're at it you waste of space.

the Big Bang, all the matter in the universe, would have been on top of itself. The density would have been infinite. It would have been what is called, a singularity
Ya that's right ChristineM! LOL
What science are you referring too?
The science of eating donuts?
LOL
Really, science does not know. There are various assumptions, but no one knows, not even your goddidit crowd. Anything prior to 10^-34th of a second after the event is unknown.

We have been here twice before but in true christian style you ignore the facts and start all over again at the beginning. The big bang was a 1930’s idea that was left behind in the 70s, do try and keep up.

Go to the perimeter institute website, it’s probably the most accessible for people like you and look at ALL the major theories that science is considering.

You have shown some ideas of what individual scientist think of the big bang theory, a theory that has been questioned for 40 odd years. Ideas are not proof and Hawking would be the first to admit that. As for you other stuff – well when you can actually provide academic verification for you claim rather than a carefully cherry picked "Ask the Experts” piece that actually goes on to explain why “The answer is that black-hole formation actually depends on the variation in density from one place to another--and there was very little variation back then. Matter was spread out almost perfectly smoothly”

The world leading cosmologist Professor Neil Turok and director of the perimeter institute for theoretical physics is open to all logical ideas and currently believes this universe was created when two membranes clashed. He said however that one thing is certain, no god did it
http://www.perimeterinstitute.ca/index.php...

Professor Andrei Linde at Stanford considers this universe is simply a bubble in a multiverse of billions of such universes, he has even calculated how many are possible, the number is astounding and topix does not have the capacity to show it.
http://www.stanford.edu/~alinde/

Prof Bob Nichol Professor of Astrophysics, Director of the Institute for cosmology and gravitation is open to any logical discussion, the book is not yet written
http://research.icg.port.ac.uk/user/23

The work of Professor Laura Mersini-Houghton suggests a superstring cause in a multiverse, her work is the only research that currently explains the 3 known anomalies associated with this universe that modern science cannot explain.

Parampreet Singh, PhD has created a mathematics that allows the theories to be explored
http://www.phys.lsu.edu/newwebsite/people/sin...

Professor Sir Roger Penrose Emeritus Rouse Ball Professor of Mathematics at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Oxford, as well as Emeritus Fellow of Wadham College Oxford was a long time believer in the big bang idea, he has recently changed his mind.

So I guess it’s the science of modern science and not history as you seem to want to poke fun at. Your really are a little bit slow and ignorant for one who wants to argue cosmology.

"Professor Brian Cox:'We don't know what 96% of the universe is made of – we don't understand something fundamental'"
True we don’t know some things, so how do you know the universe was created from a singularity?

Since Brian made that statement 4/5ths of what was theoretically missing has been discovered.

Because we don’t know what some of the universe is made of does not mean we don’t know what happened yesterday or last year, or 13,7 billion years ago, up to a point where the laws that govern this universe did not exist and so language and understanding of anything before that point also cannot exist.

<quoted text>
Which makes it a guess and not fact.
There is no proof to your claim of when the laws of physics started, hell there is no proof that the Big Bang even happened. It's a guess science took a look at data and forced it in the Big Bang mold nothing more.
Anything no matter how thin has to be held onto because they have nothing else. And if there is nothing else then we're all back to a creator. We can't have that can we.
There is proof, live with it

The Hubble diagram is verified by observation and several different measurements, the CMB experiment verifies the data.

Wrong, science took the observed and measured data and worked backwards, no guess, just hard mathematics. The language of mathematics is not tolerant of lies

The mathematics provides evidence that no goddidit so because it is unknown past a certain point is no excuse to say “Hey science does not know so goddidt”. Science is working of finding answers, can you say the same about the goddidt bunch?

Sorry for you loss but you can always rely on faith.

I just did a google for “christians don't know” and received 1,220,000,000 results

Same search for “atheists don't know” gave 61,200,000 results.

It seems christians know about 500 times less

You are right that Penn Jillette published a phrase

You are right that Hawking has lost some bets however you have still not told me how many bets you have lost.

So what are you right about? It does of course depend on what you claim to be right about. I know no god exists and I know that Penn Jillette published a statement. I know that nothing is know prior to 10^-34th of a second of the event that caused this universe. I know that mathematically at least there are a considerable number of possibilities. I know that the church is doing nothing to investigate those possibilities. See there is a lot I know.

How many bets that I have lost, if I have lost any, is irrelevant. I am right that nobody knows whether or not a "supreme being(s)" does or does not, can or can not exist. It is not possible to know either way,(yet). So, why worry about it?

Those numbers simply reflect that there are more Christians on the internet than atheists and nothing more than that.

You were the one ranting the Hawkins has lost a bet, you were the one who brought it up, no one else, now all you have to do is man up and admit that you too are capable of loosing bets

Wrong, In the words of Niel Turrok – no god did it. In the words of Albert Einstein E=MC^2. In the words of KJV “And I heard as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings, saying, Alleluia: for the Lord God omnipotent reigneth” Now Einstein and the babble cannot both be right and we know that Einstein was right

No one knows how the event that created this universe occurred, that deos not mean that goddidit, it means that no one knows how the event that created this universe occurred.

The only reason I worry about it is because pratts like you lie about it all the time

Hi Nano no mates, I thought you had vowed to ignore me, never mind, we are used to christian confusion on here.

Wrong again. What those figure represent is that google index 1,220,000,000 sites under the search term “christians don't know” and 61,200,000 sites indexed under thr search term “atheists don't know”

I suggest you to a little logic on the results, 1,220,000,000 andti christian and 61,200,000 anti atheist.

Using your logic those numbers indicate that there are around 500 times more atheists than christians and we know that is not true so how can your stupid contention be true

However you are welcome to you’re fantasies
