So which part of ToE has been evidenced? If there's 100 parts to ToE,.005% of them have been evidenced. Why teach it as pure fact?
We don't teach it as "pure fact". We have been over this with you repeatedly, so either you are too scientifically illiterate to understand or are purposefully lying.

After over 150 years of research by scientists in all the Earth sciences from all over the world working within all different sociopolitical cultures we have gathered enough evidence for all the different aspect of biological evolution that to withhold tacit approval for this theory would be unreasonable.

Even Baylor University, one of the finest Christian universities in the world, has stated:

"Evolution, a foundational principle of modern biology, is supported by overwhelming scientific evidence and is accepted by the vast majority of scientists. Because it is fundamental to the understanding of modern biology, the faculty in the Biology Department at Baylor University, Waco, TX, teach evolution throughout the biology curriculum. We are in accordance with the American Association for Advancement of Science's statement on evolution. We are a science department, so we do not teach alternative hypotheses or philosophically deduced theories that cannot be tested rigorously." ~ " http://www.baylor.edu/biology/index.php... ;

Topix atheists make me sick. They make any human being that wants to live a life sick.

They want to impose their mechanistic uninspiring dull nothingness on all life. A soulless existence for all because they lack one. Wanting everyone to live in the dark because they can't stand the light.

They should be locked up and forced to listen to Pavarotti 24/7 for 6 months.

I don't even really like the term atheist. I just go by nullafidian -- that is a person without any beliefs.

Your "creator" is a prick.

Your creator creates a fatal condition called Exencephaly, where a babies brain painfully grows abnormally outside of the skull. What kind of god would create such a thing? What kind of "creator" would allow an innocent baby to needlessly suffer like that?

I'll say it again, your "creator" is a prick.

Everyday in this world your "creator" puts 9 year old girls in harms way and makes it possible for them to continuously get raped by worthless azzholes. Your "creator" turns a blind eye to all of their suffering. What kind of god would induce such a life for a person? What kind of "creator" would allow a child to be put through such hell and suffer like that?

I'll say it again, your "creator" is a prick.

What kind of "creator" creates starvation, and all the pain and suffering to goes along with it?

I'll say it again, your "creator" is a prick.

What kind of "creator" turns a blind eye to sick and dying children suffering through no fault of their own?

I'll say it again, your "creator" is a prick.

What kind of "creator" creates cancer, and then unleashes it on humans?

I'll say it again, your "creator" is a prick.

What kind of "creator" creates earthquakes and volcanoes which cause senseless mass destruction?

I'll say it again, your "creator" is a prick.

What kind of "creator" condones at least 6000 innocent children to be burned alive in Auschwitz?

I'll say it again, your "creator" is a prick.

What kind of "creator" does nothing while innocent children are being molested and abused?

I'll say it again, your "creator" is a prick.

But he loves you!

I represent me see gramps unlike you Christians we atheists don't ask for representatives not do we require them. Unlike you sheep who need things like this, we are free thinking self reliant leaders. This is why you have such a desire to suck me off and gulp my man yogurt.

Bleat on Dave bleat on.

Religion & religious ideas get a free pass BECAUSE of the 1st Amendment.
In turn, non-religious ideas ALSO get a free pass.
If you are implying that you don't want religion to get a few pass, then you are wanting to alter the 1st Amendment
Wow. My first temptation is to simply post the Billy Madison "Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to you" clip from youtube.
The 1st Amendment doesn't give anything a free pass from criticism. In fact, it does the exact opposite by allowing criticism as free speech.
NO ideas should be free from challenge. That would make for a cowardly, anti-intellectual society. In terms of religious ideas, that's what we are and it needs to change.

So what you're saying is that non-religious ideas should get a free pass from challenges and criticism. Okay, then stop challenging and criticizing non-religious ideas.

Oh, that's not really what you meant. You meant that only your religion should get to use the 1st Amendment argument to stop other people from criticizing your religion.

Dave wants to see your floppy man boobs he likes chunky men he admitted. You are perfect for Dave! You like he are Christian, you believe in intelligent design creation, you both hate reason and observable facts, you were with several men in prison and you are a big fatass with moobs!

You will be the bride since you got the cleavage and more voluptuous figure, Dave will be the toothless groom.

You can have your honeymoon at the buffet and test your magnetism with your new husband Dave!

I am so happy you two found each other.

If a tradition is broken and based in superstition then it has no place in modern society. It will only hold us back, and that's NOT a good thing.
I want America to continue to prosper as its always done.
So do I. But unless you can prove that your morals are better than the next guys then you only get one vote. Like cream, the best ideas should rise to the top, not just old ideas because we did it that way yesterday and the day before.

The real issue is abiogenesis. Prove it can be done before preaching it was done. And also prove the universe can appear out of nothing to begin that process.

Evolution is a process of model change. Adaptation to a changing environment. There is absolutely zero proof that an original model was not created by intelligent design that has since been modified, or that the creation of this universe and our emergence was not part of a process initiated by an intelligent design. By the very fact we have emerged from a stabilized system is evidence that such may have occurred.

That American Association for the Advancement of Science statement on evolution is a left handed way of advancing order out of chaos as it infers any opposition to it, such as the theory of intelligent design is strictly religion based, and thus "unscientific" and "objective". Objective system analysis will not support that contention of order out of chaos theory, which is PURE CONJECTURE.

There is no honesty or objectiveness in statements like that.

Pascal's wager? Seriously?

Wow this is the best these idiots can do. What happens if you pick the wrong deity? There are only thousands of them and picking wrong is just as bad. Your god is just as invalid to someone of another faith as their god is invalid to you.
