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.

You are not providing food for all that multitude, are you? Why should you worry so much about others?
The one who has created all these humans shall provide for their sustenance.

None of those texts support the claim that "The bible (genesis) empowered believers to f**k the planet over." Nothing. Zip. Nada.
You're swimming in de Nile if you think those passages have not been used to justify the use, abuse, slaughter and exploitation of every living thing on the planet. Want a towel?

Christholes tend to quote Genesis 1:26 for that.

26 Then God said,“Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals,[a] and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
Genesis 1:28
God blessed them and said to them,“Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
1:29 Then God said,“I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.
1:30 And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.
Genesis 9:2
The fear and dread of you will fall on all the beasts of the earth, and on all the birds in the sky, on every creature that moves along the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; they are given into your hands.

Still no comment from you on:-

Is this because you agree with the murder of young girls?

shhhhh silly boy.

There is no evolution debate, there is no controversy, except in the heads of those who have so much at stake as their god occupies an ever shrinking pocket of scientific ignorance.

Because evolution is true and your(and my(and every other humans)) chromosome number two proves it beyond a reasonable doubt your worldview comes crashing down like a house of cards.

The batshittery in your `quixotic` posts betrays your internal agony as everything you hold to be true is proven false.

Please don`t stop though, you`re the best advert for atheism and critical thinking on this entire thread.

The "fear and dread" part certainly came true. We're the worst thing to ever happen to the planet's biota. We make major comet/asteroid impacts seem benign in comparison. I think the animals must know this somehow. Maybe it's more like 'loathing'... God should have said 'all the beasts of the Earth will come to loath you'. Oh well ... I say "FIRE UP THE PIT!!!"

Evolution could be true or not, it is besides the point, the main point is that whether this Universe created itself, or got created by chance or is there a Creator.

Once you answer this basic question, all others are easy. And this is the one, on which most of you people just gloss over.

And that is why you keep moving in circles, never finding the true path or true way to argue.

The universe was formed by natural processes, these processes be it gravity or evolution are more like unstoppable juggernauts than mere chance.

You have said it is fine for little girls to be sold into marriage and that killing one for leaving Islam is acceptable correct? If Allah existed and is guiding your savage behavior he could be a creator of nothing.

Present evidence for a creator...simple.

That is a tough question, although extremely basic. You see, no one was around. We have to look at the Universe now, billions of years after the fact, to try and figure out what happened. We had to develop the tools required for the job, often while (trying to) avoid condemnation, execution, torture or ridicule. These are major distractions, as you no doubt, well know.

Even so, we have persevered and come up with some pretty amazing details. Most of the remaining uncertainty deals with things that happened in this or that micro, pico or femtosecond after the whole process cascaded into ... what you see around you.

Needless to say, your God (by whatever name) has, for all practical purposes, been whittled away to nothing or, at best, a bit part. The desperate among you insist he was some kind of a 'First Cause' or something and admittedly,'something' probably did occur to act as a triggering event. Such occurrences are common in Nature as various forces seek equilibrium against finite barriers. A single straw has broken many a camel's back.

There's really no need to evoke the 'supernatural' to explain anything. Ultimately, nobody can control the thoughts you keep inside your own head. It's the last place we are entirely free. So, keep worshiping The Cosmic Straw ... I'm sure it's listening. LOL

Oh I know the practice is disturbing and barbaric! Yet these Islamic swine think they can tell us about enlightenment?

A few weeks ago I see some kind person paid off a hospital debt so this poor little 6 year old Afghanistan girl didn't have to marry this 55 year old man!

It had already been approved by the imam and was just days away from happening. Sadly for that one little gel saved thousands more are not so lucky.
