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.

He may have created few things and we do not know if he is creative. However, you depend on belief records and unprovable claims when you ascribe to Creation a la Adam n Eve! Our body and brain are 70% water but likes of you have stunted brain full of "ether". I believe the real GOD will not be pleased with those who cause mayhem with their lies. Do you support Boko Haram in Nigeria? You are already a self proclaimed specialist on the jihadist matters. OH !MUQ!

Well ... we got a pretty good record of past cycles (see your buddy Zit's chart) and can tell this one's a bit whacked. Probably from Third Worlder's burning tires in their brick ovens, but ... let's not go there. One thing's for sure, the Earth has about the same amount of carbon in her now as she did when she was born. Where that carbon is 'tied up' clearly varies in a cyclic pattern that probably extends back to when plants completed their colonization of the land hundreds of millions of years ago. It's only the very latest cycle that could possibly have been influenced by Humans. Who, I am sure, the Earth sees as a temporary annoyance. Your Creator fellow is not without a sense of humor. All Hail his Mighty Name!

Do you mean as a physical object or an abstract? No, and yes. But what's that got to do with anything anyway?

Yes; the result of an *intentional* act.

So, rather than answering their questions, you just hurl insults. I understand. Religionists do that. A lot. I guess they figure it beats the hell out of thinking.

To expand on this, a creation--as the result of an intentional act--requires a creator.

Prove your creator.

I didn't even notice the big CO2 spike at the end (most recent) part of the graph. 10000 years per division isn't 'high res' enough to get too carried away. The CO2/Temperature correlation apparently is not perfectly synchronized. In fact, that graph is ambiguous enough that at some points, the temp LEADS the CO2. Wouldn't THAT be a hoot!! Maybe global temperatures rise (for reasons unknown), methane hydrates sublimate causing a run-a-way greenhouse effect and (somewhat later) desiccated forests catch fire, dumping their carbon load. Maybe we're looking at two 'effects' rather than a Cause and Effect. Who knows? The Global Alarmists? I don't think so.
Yeah, I missed it the first time I looked at the graph too. I think I said something like “Holy shit!!!” when I finally saw the red CO2 spike going straight up above the blue temperature line at the far end of the graph.

Other ice core graphs from other locations (GISP, etc.), show the same information--that the Earth’s CO2 levels have never “led” rises in the Earth’s temperature before, nor have they ever been as high as they are now. Our scientific models would have predicted a new glaciation event beginning at least 100 years ago. That obviously isn’t happening. Instead, the Earth’s “thermostat” appears to be stuck and ice fields continue to melt instead of freeze. When and how it gets “unstuck” or what happens afterwards is anybody's guess but 6 billion flash frozen homosapiens is definitely one possible scenario.

Well ... we got to play out the warming before anybody has to worry about getting flash frozen ... something that could well take hundreds, if not thousands, of years. The seeming disparity between CO2 levels and temperature may indicate that there are other factors involved in the historic cycles that has not had a chance to come into play in this time of 'artificial' CO2 increases.

Our Creator guy has sense of humor as well sense of justice, equity and truth and many other traits in exact proportions as befitting to His majesty.

What we see on earth is a very minute display of His endless knowledge , wisdom, mercy and power.

Humans have really not created any thing, they just used the material already created and reshaped it to get some gadgets that are useful in their material life.

But creating a thing, they are still billions of light years away from it.

And yet many of these boast as if they have conquered the wisdom and power and knowledge of Sole Creator of this Universe.

The laugh is on humans and not on Creator,
