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.

It's sad that you think you are right but are utterly wrong.
I wasn't asking you because I didn't know, I was asking you in order to get you to prove yourself wrong.
You just did so, finally, after refusing to prove you have knowledge.
There are 8 planets, Pluto is not in debate; it is not a planet.
Moons are not planets and aren't in debate either as to whether they're planets or not. That's because they're moons, not planets.
You should also check your grammar and spelling, for we aren't talking about the "weather."
Pluto is still in debate as is Eris, Titan (moon of Saturn) and Callisto (moon of Jupiter) perhaps you should ask your 14 year old sister to help you read that atlas.

The Gobekli Tepe is the first known civilization dated at 9000 BCE.
Oh look, that's before the Earth existed, according to you.
Who dated it, was a dated document found to prove this date. NO NO and NO. So who dated it and how was it dated. The same people who dated living molluscs to over 100,000 years old.

Do you know why we use atomic clocks?
Well I`ll tell you, it`s because the decay of radioactive elements into their daughter products is an extremely accurate way of measuring time.
It takes 4.468 billion years for Uranium 238 to decay and form the daughter product of Thorium 234. The fact that these daughter products exist in nature proves that there was a 10 thousand BCE...and beyond.
The flood did not happen, don`t be silly.

You are so wrong. Our esteemed Sentor XcXcXc (senior on the Science & Techno cmte) has detailed that the planet is, according to an incontestible calculation of the scriptures and texts and other stuff that the earth (which is the ONLY planet) is 5,892 years old. This then proves that all OTHER calcualtions must bow down and accept the true gospel truth of our lord's dominion and the divine mystery and inexplicable everything. This then proves that ALL crud that is taught in schools is so hard to understand because it doesnt make sense because it isnt true and that is why we must ALL be armed, Old & Young, Firm and sagging, to keep the truth alight and all the other hogwash at bay.

Ok now explain how the spectrum was devised without knowing the gas makeup. You are using a spectrum that presumes that gas that is burning to emit the light is the same gas as omits that light on the spectrum, as different gas mixtures burn as different rates and temperatures without knowing the mixture or nature of the gas you cannot use the current spectrum. The spectrum overlaps in every flammable gaseous mixture so you presume a mixture or type and then use that to run your determinations. This is a very common error, presumption.
Secondly you use the spectrum to determine the gas and the gas to determine the spectrum, cannot work that way due to circular reasoning.
Thousand of light years away from earth are planets and suns that we do not know the composition of, again one ahs to speculate, there may be (I would say there are) chemical elements both solid and gas that we do not know of these may very well not behave in any way like what we would expect chemicals to behave. You do not know the composition of any distant stars you speculate, you use known earthly elements to determine it. No one actually knows until we have real, tangible, physical samples to evaluate.
I call POE again.

If there is a god and there is a hell then you destined for it because of your wilful arrogance of ignorance.

People here have tried to explain to various branches of science and have done a damn good job, but you refuse to learn. Your attitude is:-

"I don't understand therefore the science is wrong."

What you should be saying is:-

"I don't understand therefore I need to learn."

But you wont because if you were to actually learn something about Physics, Astronomy, Astrophysics and Cosmology. You would be scared to lose your faith.

It is sad to think that some one can live in so much fear.

I do not refuse learning, I refute the lies of evolution and all its branches and off shoots. Just because you do not have the capacity to understand GOD and thereby saying He and the BIBLE are wrong does not make the lie (myth) of evolution right, it only makes you wrong. As I have been trying to help you and others to learn, you are the one who need to gain understanding, not me.
It is the ignorant who say there is no GOD, not the enlightened. I do not live in fear, let me ask you one simple question What have I lost if I am wrong, what have you lost if I am right?

Does that mean you cannot use medicine produced by creation science, like every natural substance know to man. You are more than welcome to use all those created by man, good idea next time you are sick you will die.

Next time you use your computer, phone, TV, car, house I ant you not to use any natural component, including all copper, iron, steel, carbon, oxygen, gold, silver and every other natural element created by GOD. You are more than welcome to use all those created by man.(NONE)
