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.

<quoted text>Death was not created it is the result of no life, the lack of life is death. The lack of light is dark. You really need to get an education.
You said your god created "all."
I have an education, even without it, I'm able to understand the meaning of "all."
Creating "all" means creating "everything."
Death is a thing, therefore it is included in "everything."

Your god is a sadist.

Religion and atheism may need each other as they have for the Millennium.

Quantitative vs Qualitative analysis.

<quoted text>I did not say that and you know it, if you want to know the amounts of planets look in a good atlas it will tell you, oh by the way I do know.
You know you said that if your weren't 100% accurate about the age, that you were lying.
So right there, you lied, just like every other fundie.

An atlas can't tell you how many planets there are in other galaxies or universes. That's because no one knows how many there are over there.

How many planets are in our solar system? Just answer the question, it's simple enough.
If you refuse to answer, again, you probably don't know. Even as simple a question as this.

Atheism is a religious term and simply means disbelief in god(s)..
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/atheist
Religion is the last bastion of superstition and as it fades, atheism becomes an increasingly quaint term.

I'm not much interested in atheism/religion per se any more than Egyptian myths. It's the damage religion does that's the concern,(e.g Zionism, Islamism, ID/Creationism, laws against 'blasphemy', religous courts, prejudices against gays and not just oppostition to anal sex, the corruption of the RC Church, etc, etc.)

Religion = superstition
Theology = mythology

Interesting.

That 21st century America does not accept your views may cause some disquiet.
Atheism seem on the decline for various reasons.
May have peaked in the 1960s.

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.
Faith and science are not incompatible. There are scientist who also maintain a religious faith.

On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or, the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.

The facts that evolution takes place are many and are currently irrefutable.

General tip: if you get an argument about science from a creationist site, it's probably inaccurate in some way.

Really?

Why don't you take your proofs that evolution is wrong to the world's scientists.

In the meantime I'll await the imminent mass publicity and your subsequent Nobel Prize award for disproving Darwin.

Nobel Prize was awarded to President Obama, a Christian who added "in God we Trust" to the oath of office.

Do you think yourself a man supercool when you deny the religions ?

No, I consider myself an intelligent human being when I demand verifiable evidence for a fantastic claim and refuse to accept it just because someone told me so. Do you have any verifiable evidence that God exists?

Hi Ma,
I now believe you about Nixon and Gary Powers and Bishop Sheen being lovers and members of the anabaptist denial team from Oshkosh or someplace near there. There was that guy Ben Gleck who folks say proved that the aptitude tests were rigged and that they used to pick joke careers for us kids. I do not have to believe I failed at not becoming a priest or funeral director. I can be free. Free is expensive so I am a little short this month so can you send my next check right off? Tx, Ted.

That's about the size of it.

Whatever Obama's religion may be, it certainly wasn't the reason why he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

There has never been any two dating techniques that agreed on the exact date of anything. I challenge you to post proof of that lie.
Check out nay paper in geology. They tend to use several different dating methods when possible.
The entire globe hold evidence to the world wide flood, from pole to pole there is evidence form rock deposits to mountains to the ocean bed trenches, even the fossil patterns and bed deposits point directly to the flood.
Wrong. The types of deposits that form in floods is quite different than those that form alongside of rivers, which is very different than what forms in deserts. These differences are easily seen by a trained eye and are not ambiguous.
I am really glad there is no evidence for the exodus in the Sinai seeing as thou they were only there for a few days, the rest of the 40 years was spent in the Arabian peninsula as the BIBLE says, there you will find tons of evidence.
Really? Care to point out exactly where this evidence is? No archaeologist has ever found it.
There are huge gaps in the history of Egypt and the fact that when the Hebrew people entered the land it was not even run by Egyptians and when they left the Egyptian army and most of its wealth were destroyed, not something that they chose to recount in their history.
But it *is* something that would have been noticed by the other civilizations in the area. It wasn't. Furthermore, the gaps in the Egyptian history are nowhere close to the dates for exodus based on the Bible. Again, you fail (as does the Biblical account).

By RCC I presume you mean Roman Catholic Church the most apostate religious body in the world, that does not impress me nor does it surprise me that you do not know the GOD of the BIBLE in any way.
And yet, the Bible you hold so dear was assembled and the particular books to be included were decided by those very Catholics you seem to dsilike.
The fact that you and other never dare to spell BIBLE correctly proves that you nor them ever knew GOD.
There is no God to know. Belief in the Bible requires you to Buy the Bull that is inside. Anyone with a thinking mind immediately knows the Bible is not based on facts.

Yup like all the evolutionists around here who are trying so hard to follow a lie.
No, you have that completely backwards. Scientists, like those in evolutionary biology, are attempting to figure out that *truth* in spite of religious objections. it is those who adamantly adhere to the idea that their scriptures are infallible that stand in the way of progress and the discovery of the truth. The myths based on the Bible are no better than those based on the Quran.

Oh hard you have to try to deceive, let me correct you one again, GOD made everything it happened about 6000 years ago, it was perfect, it became corrupted by man. Had man followed GOD and his Torah there would be no cancer.
ONCE AGAIN GOD DID NOT CREATE CANCER IT IS A PRODUCT OF OUR ENVIRONMENT AND DIET, to extrapolate you claim evolution made everything including Cancer as a follower and believer in evolution that makes you responsible for child hood cancer.
To recap GOD MADE EVERYTHING man corrupted the lot.
Delusional garbage. There was disease and cancer long before there were even humans around.
