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.

How do you propose they do that without a working knowledge of evolution?
Easy evolution says this are dead, Biology studies life. There is no need to guess where things came form unless you intend to make it all up.

Ok now you explain why evolution is needed to study Biology.

There is mountains of data that confirm the validity of the theory of evolution,every day labs all around the world are looking for curers for deadly rapidly evolving pathogens. If organisms didn't evolve there would be no need to spend millions of dollars fighting diseases like TB. Pathogens acquire drug resistance through a proses of mutation and natural selection,they evolve,it's a fact.
TOE is a myth just as Al Qaeda planned and did 9/11 all by themselves, with no assistance from any one in USA.

And they myth that WTC Towers and WTC-7 fell to the ground just by the impact of a single Jet Liners.

Investigators have proved "conclusively" that both these "Myths" are true....so what if they prove that their Blind Theory of Evolution is Truth and nothing but truth?

That work of fiction does not cover any science, nor does it prove anything through scientific observation and experiment.

When a plant goes through photosynthesis, the air that goes in through the leaves has carbon dyoxide and oxygen. Plants only need carbon dyoxide to make the food they need to live. The oxygen is not needed to make food for plants. That is why oxygen is considered a waste product in the process of photosynthesis.
The real use of photosynthesis is for the plant to make food for itself. The oxygen is a little like an extra item that the plant does not need. This is why oxygen is considered a by product of photosynthesis.
You learn something every day. Now try to memorize it and maybe you won't make yourself look so stupid ever again.
Oxygen is only partly a waste product it is still needed for the plant to survive.

TB acquiring drug resistance is adaptation not evolution it is still TB is has not become a different species. If your version of evolution is mere adaptation then hay we agree, adaptation is a design feature of all of GODs creation.

BLASPHEME!

The Origin of Species put such a big spanner in the works,that when the penny dropped the churches shit their pants,if this blasphemous book had any truth in it at all,they knew that it would blow the genesis story to bits,and if that is all total bollocks maybe the whole bible is bullshit.

Because with a theory you can make predictions. What predictions about the diversity of life does creationism/ID make? Unless you can explain any other as to how life diversified/diversifies on this planet then evolution will remain the framework theory for biology science.

That means you've never read/comprehended it. What do you think Darwin was doing while he was in the Galapagos?

Very true but luckily for us all it contains no truth and no science, and only reinforces the truth of the Creation event as told in the BIBLE.

Thanks for pointing that out even if I did have to edit out the expletives.

Your bible has blinded you with bullshit.

Adaptation Is acquired through a proses of mutation and natural selection. Things evolve to adapt to a changing environment.
What bit don't you understand?

Yes you can make prediction however seeing as though the predictions made to support evolution can never be seen, proved or reproduces they remain only speculation.

I do not need to make predictions with creationism/ID it is simply written in the BIBLE so that even the smallest child can understand. The Genesis account has no holes. no need for predictions, no speculations and guess work and no "maybe". Only fact.

I have read it and comprehended it and by the way disregarded it. looking at animals in their natural habitat and drawing birds beaks hardly fits the credible scientific evidence called for to make evolution anything but a myth.

Really? So where does the Bible explain how to eradicate Carbapenum-resistant enterobacteria?

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.
Perhaps you should update your atlas, or maybe check some reliable internet sources, for you are very wrong.
Did your "atlas" also tell you that there are not billions of planets?

I have evidence but you wont accept it because of your closed brainwashed little mind.
No, you asked me for "evidance."
I'm asking the same of you, mainly because I don't know what "evidance" is.

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.
There's also trees that have lived longer than 6'000 years.

OK lets play Prove It: Prove the age of the earth, to with in 1% error.
You're ignorant to the facts, and that is why you've ignored them when presented. Why should I repeat myself to someone who obviously doesn't wish to know anything, and only have faith in things?
