Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,385

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. Full Story

Believing that takes more faith than believing on the world wide flood
Really? We can actually image the folds in the strata. We can see how the oceanic crust is folded to produce the mountains. We can see the scaring on the ocean floor showing how India moved. We can date specific events in the collision. We can measure the rate at which the continents move today and those measurements are consistent with the overall picture.

On the other hand, you have the proposed world-wide flood that left no evidence and which other cultures lived through without noticing.

Evolutionary theory says nothing about where living organisms came from. it deals with how living species change over time.
To go from the big bang to now life must have come from somewhere, where did it come from.

First the moving crust and folding rocks were caused by the food. There are many cultures that have records of the flood all over the world lol it up.

You were the one claiming that the Big Bang has something to do with evolution.
Evolution claims that the big bang lie easy the start of the evolution lie. if not where did it all come from

You would first need to understand basic cosmology and then geology and then geochemistry.

You better start with a basic middle school science text book. You've got a long way to go to understand any answer to your question. It would require at least a high school level understanding of the Earth sciences.

Get your GED and we can go from there. Sadly you are living in the fog of superstition and so won't listen to reason. As soon as someone says something different than Yahweh magicked it you shut down.

Ok now you explain where did living organisms come from according to your evolutionary theory.

So what you are actually trying to say is that you either do not know or are not willing to stick your neck out and get caught.

The evolution tag team falls once again since mow the score is:
Evolution tag team - NIL
Me - 8

Thanks for playing you loose once again.

A message to all the Evolution tag team members please tag in someone willing to go the distance and will not turn to the age old attempt to run down my education.

No YHVH did not "magicked" anything. If I shut down why don't you answer the question I asked. Here it is again, where did life appear from according to evolutionary theory?

Now I have once again asked the failing tag team a question someone please answer it

Abiogenesis. All it takes is a single self-replicating molecule to start everything off. A lot more plausible than some god boot-strapping himself into existence.

That's an idea I've considered as well. The Anti-Pascal's Wager?

Abiogenesis is like a car coming together all by itself. In fact there are better odds of that happening than the first cell coming about by the mindless forces of nature.

Not plausible at all. How low a probability do mathematicians believe makes an event such as abiogenesis essentially impossible?Émile Borel has estimated 10-50 power; and William Dembski has calculated a lower limit of 10-150 power, based on the number of elementary particles in the universe and the age of the universe.
Harold Moskowitz, renowned physicist from Yale Univesity, the author of the 1993 book The Origin of Cellular Life, puts the odds of any kind of random creation of life from non living matter at one in 10 to the billionth power.

Very good post but I still want them to tell me where they think it came from disregarding the enormous odds.

Abiogenesis is a myth of naturalism.

I fully agree evolution is a myth regardless of what language you read it in. But the Torah of YHVH is fact regardless what you may try to claim
The Torah is equally as true as me telling people that I ma nine inch long. Neither can be substantiated by fact.
