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.

WHAT PROOF IS THERE THAT THE BIBLE IS HISTORIOGRAPHICAL?
If the standard is 100% certainty, then no one could possibly accept the sparse evidence of the historicity of the bible. On the contrary, there is ample information that points to the bible being a work of fiction, which is largely plagiarized and all of the main characters are fictional and never existed as historical persons!!!
So true. And much of it is clearly absurd. It says there was night and day, and plants growing before there was a sun.

I used to think that Jesus was a fictional character based on a real person, sort of like Santa is based on St. Nicholas. But this site makes me wonder if Jesus is totally made up.

That would be my bet. Paul/Saul was the first to write about this Jesus character. Prior to that, there were only oral traditions. Paul/Saul never met this Christ character but wrote as though he knew his thoughts. At the time, to be a religious authority was tantamount to being a ruler, there was great power and riches to be gained by being a religious authority. Also, none of the actual authors of the bible knew the Jesus character personally, but the odds are good many knew Paul/Saul.

It seems as far as this particular argument is concerned there are only two alternatives to the question of existence. Is it god or is it evolution?

We have to make one step back and first prove the existence of a god who was the creator.

This has not been done.

If we have no god, we can't have a creator.

Who will step up to the plate and show us conclusive evidence for a god? Once we have this settled we can move on to the easy part which is who the creator was.

Clearly, you aren't familiar with the fraud that is the list you took that from. Most of those individuals have nothing to do with biological science and those who do, work in the proximate, not the ultimate, analysis of biological phenomena and so may not know a lot about evolutionary theory.
Second, most of those people were put on there without their consent.
Third, the number of scientists whose first name is Stephen and who fully accept evolutionary theory outnumbers that feeble list by a factor of 100.
Fourth, science is decided by consensus of the informed. Let's ignore that most of your list is incapable of discussing evolution for a moment - it is soooooo miniscule, given the number of active scientists working in evolution-related fields as to be insignificant.
When we subtract the PhD holders from your list and those who do not work in biological science, and we only keep the practicing research scientists in biological science...you're left with almost no one and no one of note.
So...another lie from your masters. It's great that you believe this stuff, though. Provides me with no end of amusement. Thanks :)
I skimmed through his list and I saw only one geologist.

I can see him now in his class discussing the age of the Earth with his students.

"Is the earth only 6000 years old?" asks one of the students.

"The opinion is divided" says the professor.

"All the other geologists say it's older - I say it isn't"

(borrowed from BlackAdder)

Oh yeah, I think there was only one paleontologist in that list as well.

Colon the Zionist also insists that it's his god Yahweh (or whatever) that creates stuff, so I guess that leaves all the other gods out of the question entirely.

Now can someone tell me why this Colon nut-job's god is more valid than any other religious nut-job's god?

Just curious.

OK, on behalf of the others, we must concede that a real scientist will leave the door open, just a crack for new information to appear. The consensus however, among the vast majority of scientists that evolution is a far better concept than creation.

For creation to be a viable alternative we must have a creator. Please show us the evidence for this creator so we may disprove evolution. The creator has gotta be an easy one....so lets have it and get on with this.

OH, this is so funny ( Ha ha ha ha, snigger snigger), you lot are so pathetic, you cant even find one real scientist who will back evolution what a croc.

When you actually have some facts to back up your claims that evolution is "fact" then post it, find me that one illusive scientist who will make your claims real. JUST ONE will do. HA HA HA HA.

You mock and try to discredit but fail at every turn you lot cant even put together one real scientist who claims evolution is fact.

I can find tens of thousands of Christian Clergy who back evolution. How would that do for you?
