Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,477

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. Full Story

Yes, almost certainly there *are* billions of planets. Given that we have found hundreds just in our local region (fewer then 100 light years from us), they are very common and, given that there are hundreds of billions of stars in *our* galaxy alone, it would be a *underestimate* to say there are billions of planets in our galaxy.
<quoted text>
Right. Most 'shiny things' are stars. But many stars have planets orbiting them.
<quoted text>
Wrong. Biological evolution has nothing to do with the particulars of the Big Bang, nor even abiogenesis. It is simply the statement that biological species change over time and that all species alive today likely had a common ancestor.
The Big Bang, on the other hand, deals with the universe at large. In particular, it describes how it has expanded from a hot, dense state where nuclear fusion can happen to the situation we see today.
<quoted text>
Then you are an idiot. There was no global flood. Most fossils are much, much older than a mere 4000 years. In fact, many civilizations are older than that.
There are billions of objects visible in the sky not all are planets you have no way of knowing how many are actual planets or how much id just dust. It is a long drawn bow to move from hundreds to billion just line in years you are only guessing.

The big bang is the foundation of everything including biological evolution. Everything physical must have a beginning and an end just because we divide it up does not change your lying foundation.

If all species have a common ancestor how did 2 similar mammals evolve to mate and produce the third. I see the lying evolutionists have just identified the very first mammal, answer me this; What was its grand daddy?

How were fossils dated to million or more years old when you lot dated living mollusks to one hundred thousands years old? The same goes for civilizations.

No go out side take off your shoes and walk on the green grass GID created just for you to do that on, if you have none near you find some.
Like with all cancers there is a cure for HIV to be found in creation. But man will insist on perversions to keep it going and the pharmaceutical companies need the money they are paid to keep on looking for nothing, so they wont find it. As for amputees well God heals all the time many 4 limbed people would be amputees with out GOD. The fact that you and others refuse to see His work does not mean he is not active in the world today.
Ummm, yes, that is exactly what it means .... http://loving-shepherd.org/blog/wp-content/up...

No, that is a falsehood. Evolution was discovered by Christians attempting to fit the data into their Bible and failing. They realized that species change over time long before Charles Darwin.
<quoted text>
Again, a falsehood. The fossil record, genetics, population dynamics, actual observations, etc *all* point to the fact that species change over geological time and that the modern species are all related.
<quoted text>
Stupidly false. We have cities that are older than 10,000 years (Jericho). We have art from 23,000 years ago. And we know that the earth is about 4.5 billion year old.

A absolute falsehood and delusionally so.

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.

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.

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.

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.
