Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,477

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

If he could he certainly wouldn't be referencing every religion on the planet and claiming it as "evidence" of God. The other alternative is that he's a fundamentalist deist (weird I know) whereby ANY mention of any God counts. But at best all he can do is point out that lots of ancient peoples all over the world came up with the idea of supernatural beings which were somehow responsible for the universe.
As many times as I've asked those two simple questions there has never been an answer nor will there ever be!

All we can do is thank them for sharing their mythology with us.

Sure, in a rather vague, poetic and allegorical sense, I agree. However note that he did NOT support your claim about animals. Because it was wrong. Plants too, since the sun did NOT appear AFTER plants.
It's okay though, we're quite used to fundies being disingenuous.
It isn't wrong. What's wrong is your representation of what Genesis 1 says.

When you say. "we're quite used to fundies being disingenuous" do you mean you and your sock puppets or something else?

If there's something wrong with my representation then there's something wrong with Genesis 1. Which is NOT my problem. Plants day 3, sun day 4.

Now, the Bible does mention OTHER lights which some fundies claim that were also capable of sustaining plant life on Earth, HOWEVER, this goes AGAINST the current scientific view of Earth's history period. Meaning that science is NOT supporting the Bible in this case.

Now go ahead and get Jastrow to agree to plants day 3, sun day 4 or admit you were just lying for Jesus and reaching REAAAAAAAALLY long when you were attempting to claim that science supports the Bible.

No other name used on this thread. I am simply The Dude. When I was talking about fundies being disingenuous I was referring to creationists like yourself. And as daft as you are I'm sure you understood that.

Again, what's wrong is your representation of what Genesis 1 says.

Penzias got it right and Jastrow got it right and you got it wrong, bubba. Deal with it.

When:

1971

Where:

Petri Dish, High School Biology

What: Induced (evolved) antibiotic resistance in cultured Escherichia Coli bacteria.

How: Exposed cultured E.Coli to Penicillin. Made fresh cultures of survivors. Repeat.

Results: After a number of iterations you end up with a Petri dish full of a new strain of E. Coli. The instructions for the proteins / processes that offer antibiotic resistance are written into the animal's genome. The 'new' strain possesses a trait that did not exist before the experiment. It has evolved.

In fact, the process is going on all around us, all the time and will eventually render our antibiotics ineffective. You godbots best step out of the way and let the egg-heads figure out what we are going to do about it. I don't think praying is going to help.

"Fundies" seem a put down, except You seem so similar to a religious fundamentalist. No doubt of your truths, funny though they may be.

"Scientific view of the earths history" would be amusing in a freshman history class. History may be a bit more complex.

The bible too, specifically mentions the lesser light, the night light, "the moon", which the god thought of as such. Too bad no one let him on the secret ... it is just a reflector, no light source at all.
