Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,385

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. Full Story

The theory of evolution does not rely on abiogenesis. Just as the theory of gravity does not rely on the origin of mass, and the germ theory of disease does not rely on the origin of germs.
Since you're already an evolution denier it you could not make yourself look more foolish by rejecting gravity and germ theory so go right ahead.
Looks who scraping the bottom of the barrel to try to look smart, let me fill you in oh uneducated one. Evolution demands a beginning it demands an origin for life with out it all you have is the inbuilt design (designed by GOD) process called adaptation. now so you don't get lost adaptation can not, does not and never will produce a new species.

No you didn't. You simply rejected it out of hand. You also misrepresented Darwin. If Darwin was being honest but was wrong then he would NOT have been lying - and it is dishonest of you to claim otherwise. Turns out though that while he did not know everything (he had no idea of DNA at the time for instance) science has so far vindicated his claims re: natural selection and common ancestry.
If he was being honest to himself then his myth (well his grandfathers myth) would just all be a mistake, Darwin was lying because he knew he was wrong, that is wilful deceit otherwise know as lying. He has been vindicated by science, what a joke no science has ever proved evolution to be fact. If it has why not post the proof right here, no one else has been able to.

It is extremely doubtful that atheism will replace religion. Like it or not in western civilization religion has inspired some of the greatest works of art, music and literature. Examples-Michelangelo's Pieta, Mozart's Requiem and Blake,s poems. All of these were inspired by religion and have stood the test of time.

<quoted text>One donkey talked by the power of GOD no problem, lets look at you deluded mindset, it rained and formed a puddle and out of said puddle life sprung able to mate with.... wait of it a second life form genetically close enough to mate. HAHAHA what a deluded mind evolutionist have.
So ignoring the evidence and saying a magical fairy went POOF and everything existed is not delusion?

Pretending the Earth is only 6'000 years old is not delusion?

Wiki definition will do for now: "A code is a rule for converting a piece of information (for example, a letter, word, phrase, or gesture) into another form or representation (one sign into another sign), not necessarily of the same type."

What's the "scientific theory" of IDC? Thanks again for not answering.

You demonstrated you were unqualified on the other thread weeks ago. That is why each and every one of your claims were deconstructed piece by piece and you still have not been able to demonstrate your claims about invisible wizards.

Already told you last time you used this - the man doesn't have a clue what he's talking about. He's an apologist, he contradicts himself, and he's also a theistic evolutionist which means most fundies think he's bound for hell. But most important of all he, like you, is unable to demonstrate what this "code" is you're referring to, the mechanisms responsible for it, nor evidence of them.

Yet you have been unable to demonstrate that:

1 - he was wrong.

2 - he was lying even if he was wrong.

Yes they have. In fact I just did. Plus I can also provide more, but you haven't been able to address the info I just presented to you yet. Life changes over time. Fact. These changes accumulate. Fact. Ergo, evolution occurs. Fact.

This is why so many creationists find Young Earth Creationism so attractive, because if the Earth is only say, about 6,000 years old, then they can claim that there would not be enough time for evolution. However that is not only denying the entire field of biology, but also physics and chemistry along with it. In short, ALL of science. And this is why the scientific community doesn't take creationist claims seriously.
