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.

Evolution is not science it is speculative at best

As usual you notice these unregistered theists come running in here like suicide posters.

They come in here dropping bombs of ignorance, are unable to debate with reason, blow themselves up in humiliation and change screen names.

Fundamentalists: believe 2+2 =5 because It Is Written. Somewhere. They have a lot of trouble on their tax returns.

"Moderate" believers: live their lives on the basis that 2+2=4. but go regularly to church to be told that 2+2 once made 5, or will one day make 5, or in a very real and spiritual sense should make 5.

"Moderate" atheists: know that 2+2 =4 but think it impolite to say so too loudly as people who think 2+2=5 might be offended.

"Militant" atheists: "Oh for pity's sake. HERE. Two pebbles. Two more pebbles. FOUR pebbles. What is WRONG with you people?"

There's one thing that is slightly off about that though.
The "militant atheist" example you gave goes with the moderate atheist.
For if the fundamentalist were to tell you that heaven is above the clouds, and no space, it would just be pointing out how deluded one is.

There's a difference between letting someone believe in a god or not, and letting someone believe that if they touch fire, they'll freeze.

What a waste of a perfectly good Bible. He could have used it as toilet paper or burned it in the fireplace to keep warm.

There's no such thing as a "fundamentalist atheist."
For atheism is not a religion.

You really are horrible at making any valid points.

He's kinda like a child jumping up and down waving their arms and screaming... Look at me! Look at me!

He wasn't getting any more milage with this lame band wagon and appeal to authority logical fallacies. So he has been forced to switch gears to this evangelical and/or fundamentalist atheist nonsense.

One trick pont that one. Until he actualy has something to say and not these ultra lame attempts at trolling he has been white sheeted.

I was never good at that. But I bet that would be a hot seller! No seriously Christians would snap that up!
