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.

By the way if plants need oxygen to live how did they evolve without it.
Plants don't need oxygen to live, they need Carbon Dioxide, ninny. Oxygen is a waste by product of plants.

Oxygen is only partly a waste product it is still needed for the plant to survive.
Only some plants, not all require Oxygen.

Why then do you dismiss the BIBLE out of hand at least it is factual
How is the Bible factual in a way that Superman comics are not factual?

I was so hoping that some fool would post this then accuse me of lying, NO I DID NOT LIE< NO I DID NOT EVEN MISS-QUOTE ONE OF YOUR HIGH PRIESTS. I quoted exactly what he said and you simply added some more.
Let us not forget that he said (which you so proudly posted):
“Reason tells me, that if numerous gradations from a simple and imperfect eye to one complex and perfect can be shown to exist, each grade being useful to its possessor, as is certain the case; if further, the eye ever varies and the variations be inherited, as is likewise certainly the case; and if such variations should be useful to any animal under changing conditions of life”
Now let’s count the “Ifs” in this statement = 3 (in 3 lines), then there are other indecisions like “can be shown”,“should be useful” and so on throughout the entire gospel of the book of darwin.
The entire book is a joke it is made up of the ramblings of a mad man who had spent too much time alone on a ship away from his family where his rightful place was.
I wonder if the same can be said for the chicken (or any other egg). Just perhaps the first egg evolved without shell, yolk or membrane, I wonder what held it together…..nothing is just went plop, splat and of species. Evolution at it’s all time best.
Hello liar

Haven't you got some prayers to make?

The Catholics had the first Canonized Bible. Your protestant Bible came about hundreds of years later. You don't appear to know any of the historical circumstances surrounding the Bible do you.
Absolutely!

The Bible didn't exist before the Catholics put it together.

That is not the same as the Bible.

Well I guess you obviously cannot use an atlas so let me educate you.
There are 9 planets in our solar system, although there is debate as to weather to include Pluto as a planet or even to include some of the larger moon of other planets as actual planets. Recent trending is that there may be another planet further out than Pluto. The actual number is debated by many in science.
It is so sad that you need me to educate you or are you perhaps younger that your 14 your sister and too shy to ask her.
What does the Bible have to say about this?

Almost 11 years ago, Pope John Paul II, in an address to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, caused quite a stir by declaring that "new knowledge has led to the recognition of the theory of evolution as more than a hypothesis." Some Catholics, particularly traditionalists, believed that the Holy Father was stepping outside of his competence in making judgments on scientific matters. Others, including Catholic scientists, welcomed Pope John Paul's reaffirmation of the traditional Catholic principle that "Truth cannot contradict truth." In other words, to the extent that the theory of evolution has a solid scientific basis, it must be compatible with Catholic doctrine.
A decade before, the secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, delivered a series of homilies that were published in 1990 under the title In the Beginning ...: A Catholic Understanding of the Story of Creation and the Fall. In those homilies, he made a similar argument: The creation story in Genesis is a spiritual history. It simply doesn't matter what physical means God used to create the world and all living creatures therein; what matters is that man is both body and soul, and his creation is not complete until God has breathed the breath of life into him. And about the creation of the soul (and, thus, of the complete man), science can tell us nothing.
Under the assumption that God is the creator, there can be no conflict between God's Law and Scientific Law; both would operate under the same rules.

Khatru seems full of himself, adjusting to the fact that atheists are on the decline.
Possibly the decline of atheists

Oh look, a non-credible source.
Let me rephrase my request:
Give us a source with a person or group of people who still believe it it a planet, and are in the position to question that.

As in astrologists, for one.

I forgot to add, anyone can question anything, just like you question scientific theories like evolution and gravity...it doesn't mean they're right or even close to right.

<quoted text>According to all scientific evidence gravity is a fact. Now you may call it what you want but it will remain a fact as long as the earth exists.
Yes, the existence of gravity is indeed true; it is a fact that gravity exists.
Though in order to explain how gravity works, there is the theory of gravity.
Same as how the theory of evolution explains how thing evolve, for it is an observed fact that everything evolves.

Really, and you have the degrees to back up your claim that they "aren't even close to real"?
You just dislike the fact that the Earth is way older than your little book of fairy tales says it is. You are blind to the truth.
