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.

The point about antibiotic resistance does not make a complete case for evolution but is evidence that it happens. Yes, I cut and pasted a small piece from Wiki. And that simple action alone was enough to demonstrate that you have no idea what you are talking about, period. Note also that you did not even admit to your mistake. Typical of YECer's though.(shrug)
Any evidence is circumstantial at best, what mistake did I make. Point it out please.

Your claim is baseless.
As baseless as any of those made for evolution
The Dude wrote:
Of the two of us I have not lied. You have so far not addressed the evidence.
I am yet to see any of all this 100% factual evidence you all claim to have. I do not want to have to see or read any more lies or speculation I want your FACTS.
The Dude wrote:
I have not agreed that evolution is a myth for the simple fact that it is not a myth. There are facts of evolution and there is the theory of evolution. Scientific theories are explanatory models. NO scientific theory is a fact on its own, nor do they get "proven" to become "laws" or "facts". This applies to EVERY scientific theory, be it evolution, plate tectonics, germ theory of disease or the theory of gravity.
I am still waiting to see these so called facts where are they. POST YOU FACTS.
The Dude wrote:
You don't even believe in gravity either. You said mass and gravity are unrelated, which is patently absurd.
I do not deny the facts of gravity only that it is a theory, this I have pointed out multiple times already.
The Dude wrote:
You're a reality-denying young-Earther who doesn't believe in any scientific field ever INCLUDING gravity who claims to know more than the entire scientific community therefore evolution is wrong because an invisible magic Jew did it all differently.
Now we come to the crux of your entire stance, 1) you are anti-Semitic, 2) you are anti-enlightenment 3) you are just plain brainwashed. If you were in any way involved in the scientific community you would know that there are in fact very few who actually claim the myth to be fact.
The Dude wrote:
So far there is only one of us who has evidence.
It ain't you.
So where is all this evidence you keep pointing to, I am yet to see any.

Proof has been posted, evolution is observed.
The theory of evolution is to try and explain evolution just as the theory of gravity is to try and explain gravity.

If you don't believe, that's just one more ignoramus in the world, it doesn't harm the facts in the slightest.
Just because you ignore them, doesn't mean they aren't there.

Theory of evolution makes big claims, but has very little actual proof.

The evolution path of even a single specie out of Millions that live on the earth has been charted.

They just find a small piece of bone here and a small piece of teeth there....there might not be any connection between them at all.

But by using their imaginations and help of creative artists, they construct the whole specie from that single bone or teeth and pass it off as a "scientific proof" of evolution.

The entire theory of evolution is filled with these types of half truths and cheating drawings and artwork.

Not a single full skeleton of any intermediate stage between humans and apes has been discovered so far.

But if you listen to the claims and what you see in Museums, it would appear that they have traced the entire path of human evolution.

It is strange that such cheating is being done in broad daylight and that too in the same of science.

Cave dwellers YES they still exist today.

So are you admitting that life did not evolve to begin with, if so where do you think it came form. Most of the followers, believers and worshippers of darwinism and evolutionism believe it sprung out of a puddle, so where so you think it came form.

So where is this observation who was there when the first live 'evolved' to observe it, who was walking around '25 million' years ago taking notes.

There you go again claiming gravity is only a theory, what a crock.

Once again I am still waiting for these facts to be posted. Where are they, they seem a bit illusive.

Why evolution has NOTHING to do with how life began? If a theory be true, it should be true for every part of it.

It is not correct to say that we do not care how life started, but when some specie was living on earth, our theory shall start from here?

If a theory is correct, it should explain and prove how the life did originate and then how it took so many different forms.

TOE is just a half philosophical and half scientific attempt to explain the abundance of life forms on this earth.

To call it a scientific theory is really insult of science.

Addressed to all those who claim evolution is a fact.

Why will no one post the 100% factual evidence that will once and for all prove the claim that evolution is a fact, as so many have claimed.

I am still waiting.

Come on LACEZ answer the questions:

So where did the micro bacteria come form, in your analogy what laid the egg.

Why don't you admit it you believe it rained on the rock, the rain formed a puddle and out sprang life.

Why do you divert so much I guess you just don't have to power of you convictions.

Once again, the theory of evolution is an attempt to explain the observed fact of the existence of evolution such as the theory of gravity is an attempt to explain the observed fact of the existence of gravity.

Wow, you can't get more ignorant than this folks!
In other words, you don't believe in cavemen, even though they existed and your disbelief in them is as stupid as disbelief in eyes.

Again, evolution has nothing to do with the beginning of life, it has to do with the evolution of life.
I'm not admitting to anything because there's nothing to admit. I've been stating the same thing in different ways every time I've said it.

Can you not read?

The theory of gravity attempts to explain how gravity works, just as the theory of evolution attempts to explain how evolution works.

Observed facts:
-Gravity exists.
-Evolution exists.

Explanation of how the observed facts work:
-Theory of gravity.
-Theory of evolution.

Evolution has to do with evolution, not existence.
What you're saying is on the same level as saying that biology should explain what history is. The two subjects are completely different subjects.

CAN YOU EVEN READ!!!!!!!!!!

In response to your question about cave dwellers I responded “Cave dwellers YES they still exist today” and you take that as me saying I do not believe they ever existed.

CAN YOU EVEN READ!!!!!!!!!!

So answer the question, where did life begin in your little mind. By the way you are the first and only evolution worshipper that claim life did not begin.

1. Evolution is a fact.

2. The Theory of Evolution explains how Evolution works and is on going.

3. Your uneducated ignorance does not change (1) and (2)

You are just another silly little godbot who thinks their ignorant opinions out weigth the work of hundreds of thousands if not millions of sciencetist world wide who know you are wrong.

There you go again comparing a fact (Gravity) with a myth (evolution). When will you get it right.

And aging you mention these illusive facts or evolution, where are they please be so kind as to post just one. I am still waiting, one little 100% factual piece of evidence that prove that your lie is not a lie but a fact.

Wow here we go again... post what ever you have that makes evolution a fact. Is it too much to ask for this to be done, all we want is to see this proof.
