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.

Prove evolution. What happened before that? Prove I came from a primate.
You didn't just come from a primate. You *are* a primate:

1) Are you made of complex cells with internal organelles? If so, you are a eucaryote.

2) Do your cells have membranes made of lipids rather than walls made from glucosides and are they surrounded by an extracellular matrix composed of collagen and glycoproteins? Then you are an Animal.

3) During embry development, does the blastopore (the first opening) become the anus? Then you are a Deuterostome.

4) Do you have a head, backbone, brain, red blood cells, and kidneys? Then you are a Vertebrate.

5) Are air-breathing, have hair, three ear bones, sweat glands, the ability to regulate internal temperature and specialized teeth? Then you are a Mammal.

6) Do you lack an epi-pubic bone and do females like you have a uterus which produces a placenta during pregnancy? Then you are a placental Mammal.

7) Do you have a collar bone, opposable fingers, a flat nail on fingers and toes, eye sockets made from bone, stereoscopic vision, an enlarged cerebral cortex? Then you are a Primate.

8) Are you tail-less with a narrow nose and downward pointed nostrils, broad rib cage, a fused frontal bone, convoluted cerebral hemispheres, a large brain for his size of mammal, color vision, a lack of tail, and a lack of cheek pouches? Then you are an Ape.

So, yes, if you are human, then you *are* an ape.

But answer the question, have you done any experiments that proves evolution.

yes, I ate my breakfast. As you know, my breakfast is the result of evolution. Why are you having trouble with this?
why do you not know what artificial selection is?

[QUOTE]
I can say that some of the items above are everyday things that occur and not evolution or I can say God gave us everything.

Or you could say a pink talking unicorn did it all. Only one of those three options is actually reproducible.

[QUOTE]
So tell me genius, how is evolution affecting us the human species?"

By keeping us fed & medicated.
Seriously - do you really not know about artificial selection at all? for real?

why not?
Evolution is a theory that constantly changing. It's more like a philosophy. You can use all and anything you wish that you have read about, but you personally have not experiment with this.

This is how NOT to do science.

Ok since it's not "all" where do you get the notion that I support this? Is this your new tactic? Do you just lie?

You haven't given evidence. You just give articles of what you have read. You personally just belong to a group and claim yourself something that you know nothing about. Basically you have never done experiments at all or you haven't proven evolution. Keep trying.

We're showing others how willfully ignorant you are by ignoring all the evidence.

Answer me this simple question:
Why are you denying evolution, a fact that has tons of evidence for it, yet you believe in something that has ZERO evidence for it?
Evidence by who? You? Did you find this evidence?

All in the name of their god.
So it's my fault that the Government has no laws to prevent this? Do you assume that I support this? Why? Stalin was an atheist and killed many. Did you support this?

Same with the THEORY of gravity.
It is there to explain an ALREADY CONFIRMED thing that exists; gravity.
So you see something and claim it? You haven't found evolution. You have made no such experiments to prove evolution. You just read. So how do you know that what you've read is true?

Wikipedia is a perfectly good start point, for they list all their sources at the bottom of the page.

You didn't even look at the pages because you don't want to know anything about evolution.
You wish to continue to be ignorant and will never look at any of the evidence presented.

There's no point in treating you like an intelligent human being for you obviously are not.
Again, intelligence is a perception that you have about theists because you like to use the social barrier to attempt to feel smarter.

What evolutionist say is that evolution is a theory that can absorb all new data and take it in and make it part of the theory. When they say that, they are not describing a scientific theory, but a philosophy. What do you think?
I'm going with 'bnzo'... sounds like science to me. Religions, for instance, are philosophical in nature and routinely reject / ignore 'new data'. Dogma is non-absorbent. Calling something a "theory" keeps it from ever becoming dogma.

Don't you remember the Petri dish, E. Coli cultures and Penicillin wafers 'experiment' raising penicillin resistant bacteria, you did in High School biology? Maybe Home Schooler's don't get to do stuff like that. I went to a couple 'Home Schooler' graduations recently. Sad little parodies of the real thing. Both took place inside CHURCHES!!! It made me very uncomfortable. I have reason to believe that there is a strong correlation between Home Schooling and religious indoctrination. Like as if they go hand-in-hand. Makes me feel sorry for the kids.

How can you even use this line of reasoning? What 'experiments' have you done, what proof do you have of God, Jesus, Yahweh, Allah, Creator Bill ... whatever?
