Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

Good one.
Was not there a first airplane and the first pilot?

The first automobile?

The first bicycle?

The first red rose?

In your case to bringing it closer to home, the first as*h*le.

They are, and will remain so as long as people like you, who know nothing of science, keep using your religious claptrap to refute it.

I find it difficult to believe there were no 1st in life. For example the very first oak tree, fig tree, bird, fish, jellyfish. The first chimp, giraffe, and the very first human.
All numbers no matter how great or small are synonymous with the number one. This must be true in biology and in mathematics. Without the first there can be no seconds, thirds, or fourths.
Let's test your argument, then.

Who was the first speaker of Modern English? And who did they talk to?

<quoted text>A whale is a good example of Macro-evolution. Tracing the development of the nostrils through fossil records and skulls, we can follow the gradual movement of the nostril from the front of the nose to the top of the head, the whales blowhole. Consider the vestigial hind legs, the fully formed wrist parts on the Right Whale. The fact that a whales gives birth under the water as a land mammal does. In fact the mother must move under the newborn quickly to bring it to the surface before it drowns. We also see evidence that the whale was once a land mammal by the way it moves through the water. Fish swim with a side to side mouthing, whales, as well as dolphins and porpoises, move through the water with an up and down flexing of the spine as you would see in a running land mammal.
Thatís one whale of a tale.

Iím sorry Doctor, I simply can not believe in tall tales of whales. Like I said, I just donít have the faith that you do to believe in such grand imaginations on the scale of a childrenís fantasy.

Theyíre mammals no doubt but many land creatures arenít mammals. So both land and sea contain mammals and non mammals. What it comes down to Doctor you have a greater faith.

On a more personal note Doctor, were you parents believers of Christ. Please take a minute and tell me about your Mom and Dad.

Unfortunately, sometimes you have to be skeptical of their intentions, too.
Some are desperate for fame and glory.
That's why there is extensive peer review.
True. I wasn't really talking about the individual scientist but more science as a whole - I didn't really make that clear.
