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.

1. You personally counted every planet? How many planets are there?

2. Scientist have evidence to support that theory, you have no evidence to support your belief in a god, and yet you say it appeared out of thin air as well.
That's called contradicting yourself.

3. There is no evidence whatsoever of a great flood, there is in fact evidence against it, as people were living around that time and lived through that time.

Besides, in your "expert" opinion (giggling a little over here), where did the dinosaur bones come from?
They just magically appeared in the water?
From your horribly misinformed comments, I can surmise that you don't believe dinosaurs ever existed, even though there is plenty of proof behind them and it is a plain fact that they existed.

FACT NO 1: evolution is a lie made up by foolish men to discredit the GOD of the Bible.
FACT NO 2: There is no scientific evidence to back up the evolution lie.
FACT NO 3: the world is about 6000 years old.
FACT NO 4: The creation story is 100% accurate and true.
FACT NO 5: Science has never proved anything in the BIBLE to be incorrect.

Easy lesson even for a fool like you.
Actual facts:
1. Evolution is proven.
2. The approximate age of Earth is 6.4 billion years.
3. No one was made from sand, then cloned through a person's rib, in order to then have incest and populate the world.
4. Facts, science, knowledge, intelligence, and common sense, all prove and have proved the bible wrong in many cases.

Again, to you crazy fundies, knowledge threatens you. Because there's a difference between belief and knowledge; god is belief, science is knowledge.

No matter what evidence I show you, you still would not believe, that is written and that is how it is.
You know that is not true, if you could produce evidence for this god you would, because all that see the evidence would believe. There would be no atheist if you could provide the evidence and supporting factual and verifiable proof.

<quoted text>
I have no need to prove any of them I know they are facts why don't you try to disprove any one statement.
Again this is a copout, because you cannot provide what you state above. That is what is considered a lie.

A lie is something that you know is not true.

If it is not a lie then you believe it to be true.

If you believe it to be true then you can and will proved proof to justify the statement.

If you cannot prove or justify the statement then it falls into the category of a lie.

I make no claims it is you that make the claims, so it befalls you to provide the support for your claims.

Yes, almost certainly there *are* billions of planets. Given that we have found hundreds just in our local region (fewer then 100 light years from us), they are very common and, given that there are hundreds of billions of stars in *our* galaxy alone, it would be a *underestimate* to say there are billions of planets in our galaxy.
not all the shiny thing in the sky are planets. Perhaps you need a lesson in astronomy.
Right. Most 'shiny things' are stars. But many stars have planets orbiting them.
Next to educate you, you are referring to biological evolution I am referring to evolution which include the foolish thing call the BIBG BANG ( you know where nothing exploded and all matter came into existence)It is called cosmic evolution and is the bases on which the evolution is founded.
Wrong. Biological evolution has nothing to do with the particulars of the Big Bang, nor even abiogenesis. It is simply the statement that biological species change over time and that all species alive today likely had a common ancestor.

The Big Bang, on the other hand, deals with the universe at large. In particular, it describes how it has expanded from a hot, dense state where nuclear fusion can happen to the situation we see today.
Next no I do not think that any devil put any bones in the ground that was all done by the flood about 4000 years ago.
Then you are an idiot. There was no global flood. Most fossils are much, much older than a mere 4000 years. In fact, many civilizations are older than that.

FACT NO 1: evolution is a lie made up by foolish men to discredit the GOD of the Bible.
No, that is a falsehood. Evolution was discovered by Christians attempting to fit the data into their Bible and failing. They realized that species change over time long before Charles Darwin.
FACT NO 2: There is no scientific evidence to back up the evolution lie.
Again, a falsehood. The fossil record, genetics, population dynamics, actual observations, etc *all* point to the fact that species change over geological time and that the modern species are all related.
FACT NO 3: the world is about 6000 years old.
Stupidly false. We have cities that are older than 10,000 years (Jericho). We have art from 23,000 years ago. And we know that the earth is about 4.5 billion year old.
FACT NO 4: The creation story is 100% accurate and true.
A absolute falsehood and delusionally so.
FACT NO 5: Science has never proved anything in the BIBLE to be incorrect.
The exodus never happened. The global flood never happened.
Easy lesson even for a fool like you.
You need to actually learn some truths before you start casting stones.

Ans.
01. I do not want to deny you the pleasure of finding out the truth about "multiverses"…. If you think it would PROVE that there is no Creator!!
02. And who will provide you with Quartz? Newton, Darwin, Einstein or Hubble?. I do not realize how dense you people are, until I engage you into discussions!!
03. What is "nature"? Will you be kind enough to define it for me? Anything which you cannot do or unable to do, you "blame" it on nature!!
God is perfect, the imperfection is only in the creations. And anyone to comment on the "quality of Creator" would be one who had "created even a single atom in this Universe"
You are most unfit to comment on the work of Creator unless you create something yourself?
5. Hubble gives you a picture, not an explanation. This is true. You can interpret it any way you like.
6. The world was not missing anything when there was no Isreal for past 2000 years and it wont miss any thing if it disappears from the world.
But do not tell it to the President of USA, the poor man will not be able to sleep for the rest of his life!!(or remaining term in the office!!)
7. Do you mean to say that our discussion is about win or loose? Are we in a wrestling match?
If you do not want to believe , you will never believe.
Jesus preached the same message to crowd and Pharisees, the crowd believed in him and Pharisees did not. The message was same, but people took it differently.
In the same way, our prophet preached the same message to all Makkah people. Abu LAHAB (His real uncle) rejected it and BILAL (an Abyssinian slave) accepted it.
It is not about winning or loosing.
It is about do you follow the truth or your whims and fancies.
01. What? You must "prove" your Creator Theory and you cannot. The Multiverse would be another nail in your Creator's coffin. We've already discussed how, in a large population,'miracles' happen all the time.

02. Silicon, like the other elements, is formed in the core of dying stars.

03. The physical Universe, unadorned by fancy. Nature is the 'cause' of everything, including the evolution of god-imagining super monkeys. It's interesting that, being Human, I (we) cannot help but assign Nature human qualities like a sex or a temperament. Coming to know Nature is very much like coming to 'know' a god, I suppose, with the exception that it is all real.

Oh, like everyone else, I helped in the 'creation' of my children and a few works of art and just maybe an original thought or two. Some of the things we think, do and say may well be unique and 'new' to the Universe. This makes us all "Creators" of sorts and well qualified to critique your god-theories. It is, in fact, our duty as thinking beings. We may well be the most organized, self-aware lumps of matter in the Universe and along with that comes certain obligations.

5. A picture is worth a thousand words ... unless you're a godbot.

6. Israel earned it's right to exist through her courage and determination. You Arabs can't conjure up enough of either one to pose a serious threat. Like children, you can irritate and make messes but you cannot run the world. Your religion keeps your minds in a constant state of preadolescence, you can never really grow up.

7. Hardly. There are no winners or losers. There's just reality and make believe. There is SURVIVAL and my god, Nature, says it will be the fittest who will win that game.

I would be interested to learn the details of his plan. For instance, how would one eradicate islamic Female Genital Mutilation without eradicating Islamics or Islamic females? Education? Gonna take a lot more than 35m 'Lbs' to educate such a cherished practice outta these people.

Yes, male mutilation is legal on the NHS and depends on a hospital trust and a surgeon colluding in the assaults. I doubt if the majority of voters in any NHS Trust area would sanction that abuse, let alone FGM which is more serious and illegal.

It's an effort to tackle the problem internationally, not just nationally. I hope someone watches how its spent.(..an investment of 35 million pounds from Britain’s foreign aid budget dedicated to eradicating the procedure across the globe within a generation).
