Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

Ok, I know science better than you do I mast say, now prove your little evolution lie, and the lie that creation is a myth. GO ON
LOL. I pass gas that knows more about science than you do, fundie.
Prove the creation myth in Genesis is a myth!? Well, before we even get to the 6th verse, we have day and night and plants growing before there is a sun.
Now, go take a science class to learn about evolution, I've only got 4K characters here.

Where did I state that I believe in evolution or that I even care where and when life or the universe started?
The same argument that you being forth for evolution can and is applied to your god theory.
The difference is that GOD is real evolution is a lie, easy as that.

Evolution is a myth propagated by the anti-GOD lobby to spread their lies.
God was created by man.
Prove me wrong, provide evidence of his existence.
Free clue, asking me to prove he doesn't exist doesn't count, neither do Buy-bull quotes.

Is it unkind to state the obvious about someone's stupidity, I think not it is only pointing out the truth, seeing as you insist on quoting the Bible, perhaps you should read it all.

Yes GOD created plants prior to the sun so what, answer me this what was the surface temperature of the earth at that time.

Your gas probably contains your brain cells that is why you are so stupid.

Yes but not all stars are planets. Like our sun it is not a planet.
What I have already set aside in science you still need to learn.
I will provide evidence as soon as you provide the proof for evolution I asked for.
By the way is you name (Rose_NoHo) short for Rose_NoHo’PE’
Man could not possibly have created GOD because GOD existed long before man, however the same cannot be said for evolution.

Lobbying for a cause is only pushing their beliefs on others if it affects those others. For example; a secular nation is not pushing their beliefs on others because everyone can believe whatever they want to, a Christian doesn't have to smoke weed, and so having it legal in Washington does not infringe on anyone's beliefs.
Sounds great in theory, in reality, its not that simple. It may not infringe on anyone's beliefs, however there are usually consequences.
Marriage equality is not pushing a belief on another, for those against it do not have to marry a member of the same sex, nor do they have to believe it's right, they can have their beliefs.
The same could be said for polygamous marriage equality, or allowing siblings to marry. No one is forced to get married. If both of us hold beliefs that are at odds with each other, regardless of the issue, and we both seek to either have that belief enacted into law, or prohibit such enactment, we are "pushing our beliefs" onto others.
On the other hand, denying these things is forcing others to comply with your personal beliefs, ignoring theirs. As well as ignoring the line in the constitution where it states everyone has freedom of religion.
Flip that around. Are there issues which you oppose, or do not wish to be legal? There has to be something beyound the marriage redefinition/equality debate.

"Buy-bull"? Sounds like something one would do at a livestock auction. Besides, its "ta biblia", the books.

Is not the idealized female form which you espouse men fantasize about not evidence of a higher intelligence?

Calling me stupid is unkind speech.

Guess you and I really view the buy-bull as silly. I'm just honest about it.
I've read the whole buy-bull. Wish more people would. We'd have more atheists.

Fundie is a somewhat derogatory slang term for a fundamentalist christian.

Thanks. Secular Humanism has similar goals without involving a god or worship. There's no future in any religion ... somebody is always gonna come back and make us all pay for our numerous transgressions.
The concept of "secular humanism" seems odd to me, almost as if its an "anti religion" religion. It can't stand alone, for it needs religion to constrast it self with.

I am sure you did but that is not proof it is opinion not even good opinion, ever heard of Lucy look that up and see just how much proof there is.
Don't you just love it could be 1.4 - 2.33 million years old, we think it might be what a load of utter crap.
It's okay that you "think" that it isn't true.
Your stupidity won't deter scientific evidence in the slightest.
Facts will still be facts.

You know what else religion is wrong about?
It says Earth is approximately 6 thousand years old.
Earth is actually 6.4 billion years old on approximation.

GOD did not appear out of nowhere fool. Tell me how life formed out of a puddle and why with everything you lot claim to know why can you not reproduce it/
Tell me how your god came out of nothing and why you can't recreate it?
Oh wait...you CAN recreate it, because gods are man-made.

Excuse me while I move to another room to laugh my ass off.

*comes back*

So anyway, evolution does NOT talk about space, that's what astronomy is for.
Let me guess, you're also one of those crazy religious people who believe dinosaur bones were place on Earth by the devil.

And yet we can provide loads of evidence and all you can do is say "he's real" and pretend that's proof.
