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.

Gallup polls regarding biggest threat to country. Has always been big government, but has spiked quite a bit, especially Democrat years. What is surprising is the nosedive during early Bush years, post 9/11 era. Big business took the slack.

You don't know what I'd do.

BTW thanks for all the peanuts. That's a fitting Xmas gift from a monkey.

Nothing wrong with that. But I think Mrs Dawkins would disagree.

What is Evolution?
Evolution is simply stated as change over time. Languages, societies, and knowledge all have the ability to evolve. In Biology, evolution refers to the change of genetic traits over time.
[ References: Wikipedia: Evolution ]
What is Natural Selection?
Natural Selection is one of the mechanisms which drives evolution. It is popularly characterized as "survival of the fittest," though that is not always the most accurate description. It is the tendency for life forms which are best suited to their environments to have a better chance to reproduce than those that are not. For example, in a cold environment, an animal with lots of fur is more likely to reproduce than a bald animal, since the bald animals will die more quickly.

That's funny.

The theory of evolution is you holy grail, but you can't even describe what it is.

Even after you google it.

Strange act for an atheist....
So is calling one a satanic witch, a strange act that is but you're right, Atheists mock all non existent gods equally, more or less, sometimes.

In some secular countries (I live in one WOO FOOKIN' HOO!), season's greetings incorporates the xmas holiday, new years and the fact that it's school and work holidays for a large chunk of summer, it's a happy time that as 'pagan heathens' we have every right to celebrate.

Just, calling it the birth of the jesus is not only inaccurate and ridiculous but it's also a big fat lie, like santa.

Hope this helps :)

I posted area instead of circumference, and I'm right on infinity.

Not many topix atheists are seriously involved.
How "long" is YOUR wave? ooh Nano

Im curious to know if topix atheists have been honest enough to have a small chapter in their handbook which states, Upon the day of the rapture or after our demise , evidence will be deemed provided .

It's called a celebration of his birthday. That's because nobody knows the exact date.

We are in agreement. Evolution, is change over time has indeed occurred in languages, cultures, and mankind’s knowledge. It’s even more obvious in microbiology.

I don’t rule out Natural selection as having something to do with evolution over time. Such as the special dog breeding that has occurred over the last 200 years.

Evolution occurs as one makes the attempt to climb Mt. Everest. The body has to acclimatize to the higher elevations. That means the body is changing it’s red blood count to make the adjustment.

Where we stand in disagreement is how mankind came into being. You say and believe it has been all evolution from the very beginning. And that man evolved from primates or the tree of primates.

I believe a certain amount of evolution has occurred as I just mentioned. However I believe man was purposely designed and created. Engineered to be more specific. Other plants and animals I also believe were engineered such as the Venus Fly Trap.

Other animals such as the small hopping insect Issus coleoptratus. It was designed with toothed gears to precisely synchronize the kicks of its hind legs as it jumps forward. We are talking here mechanical gears on a insect.

What I don’t know, was there were prototypes of mankind as God worked on his project? I can’t answer that but this I do know. I believe there was a supreme designer and engineer responsible for all life on the earth.
