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.

Alcoholism and other drug addictions are essentially ways to escape harsh realities. So is religion. Your god has forgotten the 'ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure' adage. Maybe he should have helped 'em out before they felt compelled to try and destroy themselves. Just a suggestion. Why don't you send it up to him in your next prayer-fest.

False. The so-called "Theory of Evolution" does not and never did predict the existence of rapid adaptive mutations in any lifeforms nor can it account for where bacteria and virus cells are getting the information to make these rapid adaptive mutations which make them virtually bullet proof.
... evidence of evolution is the existence of rapid adaptive mutations.

Evolution IS mutation and natural selection. Seems you have no idea what you are talking about.

You don't think those passages represent your God giving us 'dominion' over all the plants and animals and everything? Sounds like he was giving us 'carte blanche' to me.
None of those passages allude, imply, indicate, infer, insinuate, intimate, suggest or even remotely support the claim that "The bible (genesis) empowered believers to f**k the planet over."

What part of none don't you understand?

Evolution is an observed fact of life, it's like gravity, you can't say "it may be true or not" because it just is.
Without any proof whatsoever, you become a "believer" in Evolution.

But you laugh at us, when we believe in God without bringing any "proofs".

Is it not strange?

None in your opinion you mean. Take it up with your fellow Christholes they are the ones using those passages.

We have stacks of observable proof for evolution and the amount grows by the day. You have zero observable proof for Allah and you know it.

All of it. Regrettably, history shows that many 'Good Christians', particularly ones who find themselves in positions of power, have chosen to make such inferences. Are the Capitalists and Industrialists instruments of the Devil? This is ostensibly a 'Christian Nation' founded upon 'Christian Principles' and we have done much harm. Perhaps you don't believe the planet has been f**k'd over enough. Maybe your god was derelict in his duties by issuing his newest creations such ambiguous instructions. It is clearly subject to interpretation as is so much of 'The Good Book'. It has served villain and Saint equally well.

Yeah right. Funny how, even with a god involved, it don't stay cured.

Right up until the devil proves his strength over the bible-god and knocks them off the wagon.

Buybull/bible same thing. How much of it, do you buy? All of it? Most of it? Some of it? A bit of it? None of it?
The only correct answer for a religitard*, is "All of it"' any less and you get to smell of sulfur for ever.

So who have you stoned to death today?

*1. Individual willing to deliberately retard their own ability to acquire knowledge, because it is required by a god-myth. 2. One who avoids the tree of knowledge, religiously.

There is plenty of evidence for Evolution.

Present evidence for a creator...simple.

books of Chinese whispers cannot be called proof.
Ans.

In fact you people are busy in gathering all the proofs any one need for existence of Creator.

But you are just "looking" and not "seeing" those proofs.

Just like cattle, who "looks" but seldom "sees"!!

01. That is a tough question, although extremely basic. You see, no one was around. We have to look at the Universe now, billions of years after the fact, to try and figure out what happened. We had to develop the tools required for the job, often while (trying to) avoid condemnation, execution, torture or ridicule. These are major distractions, as you no doubt, well know.

02. Even so, we have persevered and come up with some pretty amazing details. Most of the remaining uncertainty deals with things that happened in this or that micro, pico or femtosecond after the whole process cascaded into ... what you see around you.

03. Needless to say, your God (by whatever name) has, for all practical purposes, been whittled away to nothing or, at best, a bit part. The desperate among you insist he was some kind of a 'First Cause' or something and admittedly,'something' probably did occur to act as a triggering event. Such occurrences are common in Nature as various forces seek equilibrium against finite barriers. A single straw has broken many a camel's back.

04. There's really no need to evoke the 'supernatural' to explain anything. Ultimately, nobody can control the thoughts you keep inside your own head. It's the last place we are entirely free. So, keep worshiping The Cosmic Straw ... I'm sure it's listening. LOL
Ans.

01. You will not swerve from the "Right Path" if you keep your fundamentals right.

You can get any amount of data and got o any details, and pile up data upon data and observations upon observation, there is no problem in that.

But the "fundamentals" which will keep you on Right path are:

a. Nothing Creates itself and

b. Nothing is created by Chance

c. Nothing is created without purpose.

If you keep these three fundamentals in mind, no amount of analysis and data and emerging information, would trouble you, but they will only add in your beliefs.

All this Data would reveal to you the "Depth" of "Knowledge, Wisdom, Power and Mercy" of the Creator.

02. The belief in "Supernatural" is the "only logical" explanation, for what colossal Universe and complexities in each and every thing we see before us unfolds.

No human or any one with Limited Power and Knowledge and Wisdom could have done it!!

In earlier ages, when our knowledge was very meager, one could call belief in Creator as "Blind faith", now after seeing all the available info before us, it is no more "Blind Faith" but "Clear proofs".

It is strange that Most of Scientific Community behave like AthiestsÂ….. they should have rejected the "models of Creator proposed by other religions and discover the Most Reasonable and Most logical model which Islam and Quran proposes".

Most of scientific community is in fact "ignorant" of the Personality and Attributes that Quran mentions, they reject things about which they have no info.

There might be "some" evidence for your delusion of Blind Theory of Evolution.....but there are innumerable proofs for existence of God.

Every thing in the Universe is a proof of existence of their Creator. Every seed when it germinates and brings the shoot out of ground, is a proof of existence and wisdom and power of Creator.

It is you people who close your eyes shut and do not see Him, is it ours fault?

Open your eyes and you see His presence every where....look at flowers, look at fruits.

Who designed them? Newton, Darwin or Einstein?

Evolution is a fact and god is a lie perpetrated by desperate scammers like you.

You have no proof of god and you know it. That is why you have to be in this forum yourself, MUQ, because your hallucination cannot talk to us directly. And you call it "all-powerful"...
