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.

God of the gaps.
There is support for the hypotheses.
People used to believe that maggots spontaneously came into being from rotting meat or some other such nonliving substance. Louis Pasteur proved that was wrong.
But Abiogenesis would have happened, if it happened, in an entirely different environment than what we have now. You will agree that we know a lot more about the early Earth then they did back in the 1700's, right?
So, what you are doing, not very cleverly, is using the 1700's science to prove that we don't have a clue today. Jump up to the 21st Century! Look at what is going on in science today.
Get out of the gaps and look at what science has done sans god.
And the idiot hits keep on rolling! The enviroment would have to had been able to support life, wylie coyote, like today. And it is you SUPER GENIUSES who are stuck in the 1700's thinking spontaneous generation is a plausible idea.

Hey boy! I say again , why does science not support abiogenesis with any evidence?

Science does not support flies being created from nothing in corpses.
Which is the definition you are using from the 18th century when they thought it was so through spontaneous generation.
This has been explained to you, but you insist on saying it.
It only makes you look like a foolish troll.

Science supports the new meaning of the term, which is a chemical evolutionary origin of life.
Despite your denial and refusal to recognize it.

The KJV was heavily altered to match the teachings of the Church of England.

Wow you are bad at this.

In reference to the number of interpretations to the bible. It is a free market and groups have tried the maximize the number of sells. If they make a new version then perhaps people will by it and bring profits up. Kind of like a new model change every other year for the Chevrolet.
In 2006, there were approximately 45,000 different types of wine being produced in the world. Recently that number was increased to 75,000. But all these wines have something in common, fermentation and alcohol.
The King James Version is probably the least altered version in history. The Amplified is a good version that makes it more simple to understand. We have little control over the free market of the number one seller of all times.

Redneck doesn't like chess because the Queen is the most powerful piece on the board and the King can only move one space at a time unless he's Castled. That can only happen if the Queen moves out and takes her Knights and Bishops with her.

For the complexity of this world, pretty well, sir.
Good to hear. We do have some questions regarding some of your data collecting.
Yes, sir.
Just what are these Topix atheists? We have been trying to find a pattern to their thought processes, but are drawing a zero. Have you managed to secure one for lab tests?
No, sir. Our efforts in that has met with problems.
Such as?
Well, sir, as you note there are issues of coherency, but we have found that the originating source of those emissions are of a very low power level, making it impossible to date to locate and secure one for further study. After beaming up three of their human corpses from remote areas, five what they call rutabaga plants, and one electronic wrist watch with severe corrosion issues, we have refrained from further search for one of them.
You have not located where they keep them secured?
They do not secure them, sir.
Huh?
They are allowed to run free, sir.
Run free? Seriously!?
Yes, sir. In addition, they are also allowed to breed with the local population.
Sir?
Are you there, sir?
Yes, I am here. I think.
You did say they are allowed to breed?
Yes, sir.
End your mission immediately E Unit 3314, and report to Decon unit 833 before returning to here.

No.

Topix Theist News
(Nelson's Meteor)

“The media has been in something of a frenzy recently on this whole topic of meteors,” said Dave Nelson.“I think it’s irresponsible of them to frighten the public about something that, at the end of the day, may be about as real as unicorns.”

Nelson said that he had seen recent reports of the “so-called Russian meteor” of last week, but added,“Maybe it’s the scientific skeptic in me, but this ‘meteor’ may just have been a bunch of fireworks that some Siberian fellow set off after drinking a little too much Stoli. It is winter, after all, and that’s how those folks keep warm.”

Nelson said that he and other meteor doubters are worried that scientists had “a vested interest” in convincing people that meteors are real:“They want the government to spend more money on science, and, let me tell you, that is the last thing the Science Committee is going to do.”

As for the scientific theory that meteors may have killed the dinosaurs, Nelson chuckled,“That theory would also have us believe that there were dinosaurs.”
