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.

I know what your response will be already, you'll say it's true and present no evidence or links. Then you'll continue to pretend that intelligent people actually debate it.
It's in his magic atlas which he keeps next to his jewish bibull.

Indeed! That's another problem. Around 6,000 years ago, large thriving city populations developed in the Middle East river basins.

Actually, carbon dating is very accurate. You don't have any idea what you are talking about.

You will have those RNs with with I love Jesus buttons lol.

I retired from a Hospital in the bible belt and more and more people were getting away from belief in god. The younger staff especially Docs are moving away from religion.

Yep. And what's sad is that the majority of healthcare workers don't believe in evolution.

Jeffrey Dahmer was an atheist in good standing, and sitting for a meal.
So, that is meaningless in this context. He didn't have a god instructing him to chow down on his own children, as the Christain god would, did he?

And we all know, that none of you believe in your own god. What the bible claims him to be, you all pretend he isn't. Even now you are passing the buck, rather than face the issue. Does it embarrass you to kneel before such a turd as Jehovah is?

And speaking of turds, have you tried your god's own recipe for Dung Barley Cakes?

Sorry, couldn't resist.:)
Maybe you ought to tell us where heaven and hell are hidden. We all know that since the Tower of Babel, the god is on extra secure lockdown, because man can build a tower that will access heaven, and the god is freaked by that. Now helicopters and airplanes really don't exist right, because if they do the god can't.

The existence of flying machines have many hundreds of thousands of times breeched heavens gates, and quite literally blew them away.

ERROR 1:“using the differences in brightness to show the differences in distance” who is to say they present the same luminosity.
ERROR 2:” we can make sure that the stars are of intrinsically the same brightness by making sure they are at the same temperature” Temperature is defined by colour, colour is defined by the type of gas burning to make the colour, no comparison can accurately be made by colour unless the exact gas type and concentration is known.(Have you been there to tale a sample?)
ERROR 3:“determined by which elements are emitting light at what wavelengths” see above for explanation
ERROR 4:“because we saw a supernova (an exploding star) and watched its reflection from nearby gas clouds” that same light would have taken too many light years to reach earth to measure in our time so you are using speculation and extrapolation not factual measurement.
ERROR 5:“? It is all consistent with a distance and time of 160,000 years, and definitely NOT consistent with a time of less than 10,000 years” as I stated GOD put the stars in the heavens for us to use in various ways He would not have put them there without showing us their light or they would have been useless to us. So 6000 years is perfectly feasible.
ERROR 6:“Conclusion: The Bible is wrong” no the BIBLE is not wrong you are.
So many obvious errors in one such small post you really should do better than that.
Then like the bible says, your god really did get his azz whooped by the iron chariot?

ahh I see, you suffer from the mental illness they call:

"Everything exists(and is possible no matter how unlikely) which supports my god until proven otherwise" You simply exist to make excuses for the lawd, it`s your...raison d'être.

Talking to you is a pointless pursuit, you`re a liar, a poe, mental and/or all of the above.

ta-ta.
