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.

You cannot even state the theory of evolution.
And it is NOT possible that the universe is uncaused.
The universe began to exist. This is required due to the impossibility of the infinite regression, which would require an infinite series of actual events.
Something which begins to exist requires a cause, as since it begins to exist, it has exhibited non-existence, and therefore is contingent or dependent, as opposed to "necessary".
If something is necessary, it could not be non-existent, so the universe is not necessary, but dependent. Something dependent requires causation.
Now say something stupid.
And from whence do you gather the authority to make such sweeping assertions? Something you've READ perhaps? Maybe a bit of undigested potato?

There is no "theory of evolution". But if your faith tells you to believe there actually is a falsifiable "theory of evolution" that has been published and peer reviewed, why don't you post the link......hmmmmmm?
Why does anything require a cause?
Bwaaaaaahahahahahahahahahahaha .........
What 'causes' a bubble to form in a mug of beer? Is each one an act of your God? That bubble and our Universe may have much in common.

An atheist was taking a walk through the woods. "What majestic trees!
What powerful rivers! What beautiful animals!" he said to himself. As he continued walking alongside the river he heard a rustling in the bushes. Turning to look, he saw a 7 foot grizzly charging towards him. He ran as fast as he could up the path. Looking over his shoulder he saw that the
bear was closing in on him. His heart was pumping frantically and he tried to run even faster. He tripped and fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw the bear raising his paw to take a swipe at him. At that instant the atheist cried out: "Oh my God...";
Time stopped.
The bear froze.
The forest was silent.
It was then that a bright light shone upon the man and a voice came out of the sky saying: "You deny my existence for all of these years, teach others I don't exist, and even credit creation to a cosmic accident. Do you expect me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"
The atheist looked directly into the light, "It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian now, but perhaps, could you make the BEAR a Christian?"
"Very well," said the voice. The light went out. And the sounds of the forest resumed.
And then the bear lowered his paw, bowed his head and spoke: "Lord, bless this food which I am about to receive and for which I am truly thankful. Amen."
Very amusing. If you could produce the Praying Bear it might even be interesting. But you can't. In fact, you and your God together can't conjure the power to make toast. Best leave it to the Science guys and quit playing with things you can't understand.

So now you advocate pedophilia.
Great thing to be horribly immoral and judge others on morality.

I bet he takes advantage of the fact that there are doctors and other medical specialists. I bet he doesn't complain and tell them that his god will save him.

If atheism is so great, why are you so miserable, bubba?
So you trash your savior's religion in one post, then in the next you want to smear me, for spotlighting your doing so? LOL!

If I weren't already the most optimistic and happiest person ever, your words might have made me so. It is so refreshing to see that someone with all data to the contrary, can still fall so far off the mark. You are proof, that my choice to delete all theism from my life, was the right one.

This should be life affirming to you too, little girl. After all, isn't it the misery inherent in your religious superiority, that gives you joy, and causes you to see real joy in others as misery?

Atheists love to make fun of believers
but defensive when others exercise freedom of speech.

There is no scientific evidence for atheism,
just an old Greek Philosophy.

Most atheists prove to be agnostics when they pause to think.

Agnostics are wimps!

How about 'evidence' that believing offers no special protections ...

Of course he does, those prayers and nothing but prayers for healing, are reserved for the religitards children. For themselves, nothing but the best medical care that money can buy, will do. Many a doctor has been stiffed on the bill, after saving one of their lives, and then witnessed them thank the lard, for their miraculous recovery.

You didn't read my post did you? I so approved of his trashing his own Jewish Rabbi's faith and teachings.

So how is it, that you mistake the complete lack of any theism as an on the fence attitude as to wheather or not Thor, Loki and Pele are real gods?

They dont believe in nothing. They believe in reality.

OK
You are in the UK with Established Churches?
Are these Established Churches tax supported, just a question.
Not trying to start a fight.

We have no tax supported monarchy or churches here.

Reality is a "glittering generality" Your reality and mine may be different
