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.

All I ask for is to see the supposed evidence, none has ever been posted. All I get is this kind of answer, yet you nor anyone else has ever actually posted any.

Typical diversion from evotwot once again. post you evidence if you actually have any. I seriously doubt if you do.
All I have been asking for is 100% factual evidence that will once and for all prove that evolution is factual as you claim. WHERE IS it evotwot.

Once again creation is not a theory it is a fact
If by "creation" you mean existence then I agree. If by creation you mean existence was made by an invisible magical Jewish wizard then that is not a fact but rather a baseless claim without evidence.
You gotta be kidding wrote:
evolution is now and will always just be a theory or myth
Actually it will always be a scientific theory. It MIGHT one day be falsified, but that has yet to happen.

if you are totally honest with your self.
We know you're not.(shrug)
You gotta be kidding wrote:
The above link does not prove evolution at all
But it certainly does demonstrate it.
You gotta be kidding wrote:
both DNA and RNA are created matter.
Like I said, they exist, yes. Were they created by an invisible wizard? Not as far as can be determined. But even if they were that still does not address evolution.

So all in all, all your argument is "Evolution just didn't happen cuz GODDIDIT WITH MAGIC!" followed by a lot of posturing. Congratulations, you demonstrated yourself to be just another uneducated ignorant fundie liar for Jesus!

Atheism is a fact, until theists prove that god is possible actually.
Actually you are incorrect. Atheism is not the default answer if theists can't provide evidence of a God. You're making the same mistake they do when they claim if evolution is incorrect then that means Goddidit with magic.
-Skeptic- wrote:
I'm happy with reality being what it is - entirely godless.
If you disagree, the burden or proof is upon you to prove that a god is possible (which you've failed to do for 2 years).
Very simple. By virtue of the fact you have yet to prove a God is IMpossible. I make no claim yay or nay. You have made the *positive* claim that it is 100% absolute impossible, period. End of story. You have failed for that long.
-Skeptic- wrote:
But we already know that is point 1. which you are scared of answering for the last two years (because you know that you are categorically wrong on this point and its embarrassing for your ego to admit this).
On the contrary, you have been answered and already know this. I'm still waiting on your response. All you have done is repeated your arguments, not addressed mine that followed. Remember it's all still here:

Wrong. One does not have to know everything to know something.
I never claimed that. I said since no-one's been able to to observe past our current universal boundaries you cannot state state for certain that your position is 100% correct.

I can know that 2 atoms + 2 atoms = 4 without a doubt, I don't need to know everything to know this. That's actually the f*cking reason why science is so important and critical.
If scientists threw their hands in the air and said, "Sh*t we need to survey the whole universe, before we test this DNA" nothing would ever get done.
Agreed.

Your lack of understanding of science shows a lot, its probably why you are agnostic - its takes a special kind of ignorance from you.
Ad hom.
-Skeptic- wrote:
Yes it does, it does that all the f*cking time.
Try the zeroth law of thermodynamics - energy cannot be created or destroyed, there's a fundamental absolute which is an absolute.
There are many many countless examples, including universal constants, direct mathematical absolute relationships - its all there if you bothered to study or be curious about the world.
But you don't you're willfully ignorant about all of this stuff - ironically the most fascinating stuff of all - the core of science - natural laws.
Is cause and effect an absolute? Or was that idea all thrown outta whack when along came quantum physics? Is EXACTLY one third absolutely impossible in base 10 or can I change axioms and have exactly one third if I switch to base 3? What does that say about "mathematical absolute relationships"?
-Skeptic- wrote:
Dogma is claiming that god is possible, when all scientific evidence points to the opposite.
No, all science simply points to a complete lack of evidence. Not QUITE the same thing.
-Skeptic- wrote:
It is the duty of theist and ignorant agnostics like yourself to prove god is possible, before entertaining such ridiculous and unscientific claims.
I agree that the concept is unscientific. That does not make it impossible. Can we currently test for the existence of other universes?

The so called evidence for the evolution of human beings, I have addressed this before but because you are so brainwashed I will do so again. The vast majority of these so called "specimens' consist of no more than a few bone fragments and an artist with a good imagination. I love the one where you evotwots too a human scull and a chimp jaw bone and a grinder to make them fit, oh ad yes how about the one with a partial scull and a fragment of a leg bone (fund over 1 km away) and hay presto we have a new species.
What a joke.

Foul mouthed response .......... just what I have come to expect. Ok then here is a challenge for you. Post just one bit of scientific evidence that is 100% irrefutable factual evidence that 100% proves that atheism is 100% factual. There just one little piece.

What point, that atheism is a scientific fact, Ok but I am still waiting for that fact to be posted, as I am still waiting for the 100% irrefutable factual evidence for evolution, I am yet to see either.

That would simply be because you have not actually posted anything, when you do I will gladly respond to it. Me run a way never.

So now go ahead and actually post this 100% irrefutable fact that will once and for all prove evolution is true and factual.

Otherwise your questions have been answered.
