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.

First off read a non bias non religions history book. and second Helen Keller was 19 Months or a year and a half be she contracted an illness that left her deaf and blind. plenty of time for some brainwashing.. And she was able to communicate somewhat with Martha Washington, the six year old daughter of the family cook, who understood her signs; and by the age of seven, Helen had more than 60 home signs to communicate with her family. So your argument is completely invalid, Yes read more than one book you can learn alot ...
{Living in complete isolation from the world she acknowledged she always knew God was there even before she could communicate}.

This is her testimony and her claim. How much indoctrination you think a 19 month child gets?

The following is an example of the kind of indoctrination a 19 month old receives.

How to be potty trained, how not to throw food at the table, not to talk back to her mother, to stop jumping up and down on the couch, not to put bugs in her mouth, not to pull the tail on the cat, and donít take food from the dog when he is eating, stop playing with her food, donĎt bite friendsÖÖÖ

This was a person who was isolated from the world. Yet she acknowledged she could feel that God was near her. Sorry but your point is null and void.

Why wouldn't you think that different species of the same type animal could be so different? We are similar , and the differences
are small. But the small differences have a huge impact in reality.
For instance it would make sense to you had all parent species
survived and were alive for you to see the progression.
But they did not but we can still see the progression in retrospect via the fossil record and our knowledge of evolutionary pathways. In this way we can make sense of why a family groups can harbor similar but vastly different animals within it.
How without intervention?
A valid question and a possibility, but we are coming very close to finding out the truth maybe simpler than we ever imagined.
There is the possibility of exterior manipulation of the genetic code, and genuine questions how it can be that man became so intelligent on his own.
But the answer to this is simply that it is not ruled out Eagle, but it cannot be ruled in , until something points to this.
So far there is little indication there has been exterior influences in the manipulation of our development.
Perhaps the biggest clue so far has been that no intervening force or entity has presented itself , in the same way as written in the genesis account. If there were then there would be no reason to doubt it don't you think?
I can not help but to keep going back to the very beginning. A complete sterile environment of all non living things. From this a explosive burst of life that completely overtakes the earth and the seas.

I canít accept these complex arrangements of RNA codes and DNA codes self assembled and took on a life of their own. But yet atheist accept that life self created from lifeless material. This complex self assembling and self creation has never occurred from non life material in a lab setting.

The Irish football team is not at its best but has been great in the past, their beer is excellent and I don't think your Mary was Irish.

This I will criticise them for, though: www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/feb/05/magdalen...

No, really. Your avatar picture promotes war and weapons of war which indicates that you believe the question is "Who Would Jesus Kill". If that's what groveling before your particular deity teaches it's "sheep" then I honestly and truly hope that such a deity does not exist.

<quoted text>Macroevolution has been directly observed in the wild as in labs.

The only reason Creationists reject it is because it conflicts with their fundamentalist religious views.

Tom Jones wrote, "
There is a struggle for cultural domination: Science or God,
"

All the scientists who support evolution have wildly diverse cultural backgrounds: Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, nonreligious, liberal, conservative.

All the people who oppose evolution have basically the same background: fundamentalist Abrahamic religion.

But it's the SCIENTISTS whose culture is causing their position? That's funny.
Has not!

I don't know about the other stuff, but the Irish aren't very good at soccer. The country is 41st in the world rankings....

<quoted text>Being incomplete does not invalidate it as evidence.

If I have a photo album with a picture of Mary in North Carolina on Monday, South Carolina on Tuesday, Georgia on Wednesday, and Florida on Thursday, that's good evidence indicating Mary took a trip from NC to FL, even if we don't have a 10 hour video documenting every mile she drove.
You don't have those photos.

You have a picture of Mary and one of John and another of a chimp. So you then draw a line connecting what you think are dots that John and Mary had a chimp baby.

Since you aren't one you don't get to define one, which is basically the reason the definition is one YOU agree with.
But atheists do NOT! Dipshit, you have been told this countless times and still want it to be true when you know it isn't.
Liar for Jesus.
