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.

Ignore the alcoholism comment, I got a little mixed up.
The request for your source still remains though.

Well logical fallacies are all his ilk have so no surprise.

Whatever you do never have a logical fallacy drinking contest while watching a William Lane Craig debate... You would be dead in 20 minutes flat.

No atheist has ever said god didn't do it because imaginary friends don't actually do anything one way or the other. Enjoy your delusion chump.

Peace :)

Why don't you have a religion? Because all the theist organizations are miserable failures?

Nice to know we are winning as you have shown, thanks :)

I don't need to duplicate the posts of others. I was just going to post Genesis 1:26 but they've far surpassed that.

Question: why don't you know your bible?

More to the point, there's nothing there that supports your claim:
"The bible (genesis) empowered believers to f**k the planet over.
And you haven't posted any supporting texts for your claim because there are none....

Nothing you or anybody else's has posted supports your claim that "The bible (genesis) empowered believers to f**k the planet over." Nothing. Zip. Nada.

Evolution theory does not have and has never had an viable theory for the source of the "information" that appears to cause cell mutations. It originally posited that it was DNA but that was debunked as soon as it was discovered that prions mutate without DNA. In reality, no one really knows what purpose DNA serves other than to simply record information received from a yet unknown source.
Incorrect! Mutations are changes in genetic sequences due to replication "error", chemical disruption, or even radiation. Prions have genetic sequences, they just aren't full DNA strands. DNA is not an information recording structure.

They can "disagree" all they want to, but they have not yet produced a "god" that "dunnit". No evidence, no god. It really is as simple as that.

Oh it isn`t just the Yemeni. I`ve seen it in Oman when I was detached to Al Udeid. They like their wives to be children.
Strangely enough though...I also saw how the `heterosexual` Omani men were with one particular 19 year old fair skinned, freckled and red headed MALE soldier. They immediately turned effeminate and homosexual when they saw him. Something in their head is not wired right.
Abdul-Aziz Al Sheikh, who is the Grand Mufti of our friends Saudi Arabia says quite unequivocally that,
"A girl is ready to marry at 10 or 12 years of age according to Islam"
and
"Our mothers and grandmothers got married when they were barely 12. Good upbringing makes a girl ready to perform all marital duties at that age."
It makes me wonder what happens to a girl who receives a good muslim upbringing which qualifies her to "perform all marital duties" by the age of 10.
Yeah. I've been to Oman several times in the oil exploration business. I've always thought of it as the best of a bad lot. The Sultan's government at least didn't let us exploit the locals to the extent we would have liked (hard work, low pay). They made us pay them a decent wage. Spent time in Muscat, where it seemed the women could wear normal clothes if they wanted or were brave enough. Of course, most of my time was 'in the field' man-only world.

I mean something other than the well understood natural dynamics involved. Your hero god just playing around? He doesn't have anything better to do? Our Universe could well be embedded in a larger system than we are currently aware. I see no reason to invoke 'godidit'. We'll figure it out.

I agree that there is no debate about mainstream evolution's pet claims because the the discovery and subsequent confirmation of rapid adaptive mutations in bacteria and virus cells killed the debate.
Our generation's best medical scientists followed a false paradigm constructed by a bunch of god-hating false prophets with daddy issues....and everybody on this planet has a stake in the consequences of buying into that scam.
The discovery of individual bacteria and virus cells which can adapt themselves to anything we can try to kill them with and explode into mega colonies of deadly critters in a matter of hours or days totally obliterates the false evolution paradigm predicting small changes by sequential mutations over thousands/millions of years. That dog don't hunt no more, bubba.
I think 'junk DNA' may be a store-house of past mutations, kind of on-standby until needed. Speeds up the adaptation process if the organism has, at some point in it's ancestry, run into similar situations. Nothing magic.

If that works for you, go with it. When it stops working for you, try something else, bubba....
