Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

Yeah. It's the sky as described by primitives who thought it was "firm" or fixed in place by your god and was a reflection of his perfection. Of course, we now know that is not the case. Stars are born and die between blinks of your eye. The Universe is a seething cauldron of change, chaotic, formless, unconcerned. You really need to come to grips with this.
You need to come to grips wioth reality and cast aside you lies and myth and embrace the truth of Torah.

Your God is not supported by even one piece of verifiable evidence.
I have read that site it is a well written hypothesis and actually states that in the opening section of the paper, it is not proof for the myth (lie) of evolution and does not claim to be so.

We have been down this line so many times before don't you have anything new to add.

Adaptation is not evolution it is an design feature not the myth (lie) of evolution.
If that is what you call evolution then I guess your understanding of evolution must go like this. God (YHVH God of Israel) created all things exactly as the Bible says He did. He build into every organism the ability to adapt to its surroundings. Those organism use that design built adaption to adapt to their environment. Sounds like creation to me.
Darwin's book is nothing more than the ramblings of a misguided soul.
It was awful nice of Yahweh to throw in that "design feature". He must have known the DNA molecule would need that ability to survive untended for billions of years. You wouldn't think adaptability would be much use in a 'perfect creation', but you can't expect a god to be omniscient ALL THE TIME.

Maybe I just expect too much from my gods.

Aerobiology ...Zoology
These all rely on our current understanding of biological evolution.

You don't agree, just show the independent verification to back up you claim.

Again, as long as our current model allows us to make predictions about biology it is a valid tool. Find a better (more predictive) model or you're whining will continue to be just that ... whining.

Creation Biology - the study of biology from the point of view of creation and intelligent design
This is a joke, right?

Any actual predictive tests? Any independent verification? Without both of these things, you're just making stuff up that has nothing to do with actual science.

You know all you have to do to prove biological evolution wrong is find one (1) fossil which is entirely inconsistent with what can be predicted or anticipated by the evolutionary model, such as rabbit in the Precambrian strata. None have ever been found.

Perhaps if you knew the real true one God, YHVH the God of Israel you would know what to expect of Him, Yes UHVH God of Israel did include the adaptation design feature in each and every part of his creation and yes he Know that the DNA molecule would need that ability to survive but not for billions of years.

No real science need to acknowledge the myth (lie) of evolution, the only thing that does in biology is "evolutionary biology" and that is not on my list as it is the study of a myth,.

No study of Biology NEEDS to recognise the myth (lie) of evolution yes they are all taught it and that to indoctrinate their thinking, NEED it now way. I do not need the myth (lie) of evolution to study the cell in a muscle and the way it interacts with amino acids in order to develop, nor do I need to have any need of the myth (lie) of evolution in order to study embryonic development. In order to create a predictive model of any sort one need to begin with a base if that precondition is myth (lie) of evolution they your model will be established with a faulty base and your conclusion based on myth (lie) of evolution will never be proven, if however you construct your model on knowledge of the seen and tested then your outcome is testable and reproducible in the lab.

The issue you have with you myth (lie) of evolution based model is that you age your fossils by the layers of the geologic column and you age the layers of the geologic column by the fossils you found in them. WRONG you cannot do so. How do you explain the existence of dino footprints alongside human footprints and how do you explain the finding of Dino soft tissue still intact. Some problems for your myth (lie) of evolution and billions of years.
