Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: News24

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.

What's the "code" you're referring to, HT?

What's the "scientific theory of IDC, HT?

Thanks again for never answering, HT.

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.
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.

atheists and evolutionists HATE the issue of ID and the origin of life ... therein lies their demise
Not at all. The theory of evolution does not rely on abiogenesis. It doesn't matter whether life started naturally or if it was space aliens or if Goddidit with magic.

All it needs is for life to be here. Life IS here. Life evolves. Facts. In order to demonstrate otherwise you need to demonstrate that life is in fact NOT here. Good luck.

...... come-on Dude ... give it a shot
Actually the origin of life is NOT a simple question. If it was you fundies would have an answer. Turns out that Goddidit with magic is about the most ignorant answer one could possibly get. In the meantime there are numerous scientific organizations researching abiogenesis as we speak. What HAS been established is that life started somewhere around 3.5 billion to 4 billion years ago and that those first organisms were microbial/bacterial in nature. This lends support to the idea that life arose via natural chemical processes starting off with comparatively simple organisms.

Of course it is still possible that rather than a natural occurrence then it could have been aliens, God, or a currently unknown 4th option that no-one's thought up yet.

Either way, none of it has any bearing on the scientific validity of evolution.

<quoted text>
Epiphanies are a fascinating phenomena to study. These sometimes spectacular, powerful, inexplicable bursts of revelation have happened to many many people throughout history, more than enough to establish its occurrence as a syndrome. Typically, the recipient human brain is awake, cruising along in a beta brain wave pattern, taking care of its daily chores, minding its own business, and then.....whammy! The brain suddenly and involuntarily shifts gears on its owner and explodes into a gamma brain wave pattern for a few micro seconds. While the cause of this phenomena remains a mystery, the effects can be tracked and catalogued. The recipients often manifest their individual revelations "out in the world" as a new theology, philosophy, poem, painting, sculpture, song, scientific theory, mathematical theory, etc etc etc. or something as simple as a paradigm shift resulting in the inspiration and courage to change, live a different, more productive, more satisfying life. These little “miracles” happen every day to millions of people all over the world.
BTW, you clinging to the cynical speculation that Flew’s epiphany about God is attributable to some “lucrative book deal” despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary is.....amusing.
The problem is, if Flew did happen to come across such overwhelming evidence, he took it with him to his grave.

You are probably quite correct.

We did this dance weeks ago and you still lost then. If you're unwilling to change your approach and actually start providing anything of substance there is no reason to think anything will turn out different this time.(shrug)

Pretending the Earth is only 6'000 years old is not delusion?
First I have never mentioned any "magical fairy" nor any "POOF" so you are grasping at the proverbial straw once again.

Second all I want to see is one bit of your evidence that proves evolution to be 100% factual.

I am still waiting for those who have chosen to ignore my question.

The definition I provided should have been adequate. I have also now already provided at least three examples.

Note that all the time you avoid each and every single one of my posts like the plague, I address yours directly. This means that the premise of your own argument is left undemonstrated. Without this any point you think you have does not stand.

What is this "code" you refer to? What evidence supports this? What was the mechanism(s) responsible for it? What evidence supports this?

What is the "scientific theory" of IDC?

Thanks in advance for never answering.
