<quoted text>Nope, you still have not explained anything.
I have you just don't like the answer.

Can you explain your sense of purpose when atheism is just a footnote in human history and human history is an insignificant event in a cold pointless universe?

The Male lion will kill the cubs of a pride that he has not sired, how does that fit this new tenet of evolution you would like to present.

Natural selection, in essence. Humans kill off opposing tribes, even today, and your god is said to have ordered this behavior in your religion. The difference, science answers the questions with answers, your religion just answers the questions with assertions.

None of which is ever claimed to be an "accident." But there does not need to be intent in the forces of nature.

<quoted text>Why would I show you evidence?

God has already revealed Himself in a sufficient manner to yourself that you don't need any more evidence.

Evidence isn't the problem, love of sin is the problem, you cannot receive God because you love your sin too much.

You just deny that because the alternative is something you cannot face.

Wow you really need to look up lions before making a jackass out of yourself.

<quoted text>So the male Lion gets to the top of the pride by being caring?

The evolutionary (imaginary) process, does not require care or concern, only survival...

Unless you are arguing that evolutions main tenet is "survival of the most caring..."?

Explain how you can assign attributes to something you cannot prove exists?

You are merely rehashing your tired disproven apologetic arguments from before.

Explain how being a cosmic accident gives you purpose...

Where is this observable evidence? In campfire folk tales that have been rewritten and changed over the years?

If you cannot show evidence I accept your surrender and the atheist is on solid ground.

People sadly kill for a host of reasons. Killing over variations in god being a culprit so often.

No that is the apologetic take on non believers. All my atheist friends are highly educated, have great jobs and are very happy.

Bib bang? Was that an infant fight or something? Lol!

Again chump atheism is not believing in god, it has nothing to do with evolution, abiogenesis, the Big Bang or this bib bang that you are going on about.

Care to fail again?

Atheism requires God to exist in order that it can exist. This causality is epistemological, not ontological, in nature. Ergo, Faith is not involved, not unless one argues that knowledge itself is a faith construct.
See?
I am, and you may or may not forgive me, duty-bound to offer you the following:

Much of what is defined as atheism by brainwashed morons is actually pure logical reasoning or simply (freethinking).
The scientific approach requires evidence to determine.
Not faith not belief 100% pure unbullshitted evidence.

Bite down on the reality of the evidence, it's CSI.. Does your mythological god really exist episode 1.

No he didn't , but thanks for admitting that God does exist. You do that more often than you realize. Your inability to drop the subject about God for starters.
