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.

Yes things change if you go into the sun you get a sun tan, but you have not changed species.
Once again dating is not a science it relies on superstition and guess work (see above for mare info).
Prove the creation account wrong.
Prove the world wide flood never happened.
Prove the exodus never happened.
There you have it now DO IT.

A fact is a fact whether you choose to accept it or not.
Facts don't need faith.
Contrast that with the various different religions that exist and all the unproveable cosmic mega-beings that people worship.
Religion and gods are based on faith - not facts.
Science is based on facts.
Fact and faith go hand in hand in every aspect of life, Evolution is based on faith, faith in man.

So you are claiming that African people are a different species, nice well done.

Not at all! I am saying genetic variations that are geologically co-located can be explained by natural selection.

BTW chihuahua's and grey wolves are the same species.

Nice try at the race card though, dim bulb.

It always amazes me when someone who believes in the literal interpretation of the Bible talks about science being based on superstition and guess work.

No, the dating techniques are based on solid science. They have to use correctly to get correct results, but that isn't a surprise. Of course, you have to understand some basics about radioactivity to understand how the dates are determined. You also need to know some basics about types of rocks and their properties. But nothing all that difficult is required if you actually want to learn. Some methods (Rubidium-Strontium) are even self-correcting.

The fact that several different methods give the same dates even though they have quite different characteristics, are based on different elements, have different rates of decay, etc, is STRONG evidence that they are correct and that the Biblical dates are simply superstitious nonsense.
Prove the creation account wrong.
Prove the world wide flood never happened.
The complete lack of evidence for a world-wide flood is good enough proof. If a global flood had happened, it would be obvious in the geological record. Instead of flood deposits, we find everything from desert deposits, to oceanic deposits, to grasslands.
Prove the exodus never happened.
Once again, a million people living for 40 years in the Sinai would be *obvious* in the archaeological record. Instead, we see nothing. There is also the little problem that the Biblical dates of exodus are impossible: Egypt controlled the land of Canaan at the time.
There you have it now DO IT.

I have done both and found the Bible to be the book filled with superstitious nonsense and falsehoods.

2) Prove your extreme earth age to within a million years.
You do realize that this is .02% accuracy, right? No, we do not have the age of the Earth determined to that precision. We do have it to within about 100 million years.
3) Prove man and woman were not created as stated in the BIBLE.
4) Show where any science has disproved the BIBLE.
There you have it now do it.
The Earth is much more than 6000 years old, which alone shows the literal interpretation of the Bible is wrong. This is a scientifically established fact. The universe at large is about 13.7 *billion* years old and is about 3 times as old as the Earth, which is only 4.5 billion years old. These are scientifically established and the dates are not even debated any longer, up to about 5% on way or the other.

There was never a time when there was just one man and one woman. This is established by looking at our genetics and showing that such a small population is contradictory to what is inside of us even today.

The problem, of course, is that you don't understand enough science to understand the scientific demonstrations of these facts. because you don't understand them, you reject them in favor of your superstition. Perhaps if you sat down and learned some science past the level of popular magazines, you might actually realize just how wrong you are.

Which creation account, Colin?

There are many to choose from, all as unproveable as your particular choice.

Yes 0.2% would be good, your statement "No, we do not have the age of the Earth determined" proves categorically that you do not know, nor are you correct.

Prove that the earth is more than 6000 years old. Prove it with 100% accuracy.

Not debatable why do most scientists not agree with you, 5% what a joke, 5% of 15 billion is not accurate enough, it is a joke. And you fell for it.

You answers is based on mans guessing and inaccurate speculation. NO more than that. you now need to prove what you have posted.

In 7000BC mesoamerican tribes were advancing their farming techniques and building advancing cities. This is older than the bible says the earth is and these people were never wiped out by a flood. Indeed at the time of Noah's flood they were thriving and doing quite well.

So you admit that things can change yet not change species, that alone disproves evolution, and I know that Chihuahua's and Grey Wolves are the same species that also disproves evolution.

FYI I was RCC and now lecture in Physics.
Hence I can tell you with absolute certainty, you know as much about science as "tea leaf knows about the history of the East Indea Company".
You will also find that most of the atheists here are exchristians and as such have not only read the bibull they understand it.

Look it's obvious you are mocking religious people with your Poe act but for real you are laying it on a little too thick. Nobody is that stupid so maybe just reel it in a little bit so you are more believable okay?

Read the BIBLE walk on the grass GOD created look at the eco-systems He put in place there you have evidence, while you are at it, look at the human eye, the bacterial flagellum. All created by GOD.
By your own admission evolution is a lie. THANKS
If you are right then why does your god murder children with childhood cancers?

Does he hate children or is he just a sadist?
