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.

Loved their recent version of Stairway to Heaven!

Our northern neighbors Canada have produced excellent musicians

Being a diehard Jazz fan it's impossible to overlook perhaps the greatest keyboardist ever Oscar Peterson

Currently we have from Vancouver...
Michael Buble & Diana Krall - Excellent!

Celine Dion
Good but no Barbra Streisand

And not even remotely close to the legendary Ella Fitzgerald.

I saw BTO in 1975 and they were pretty good.

However, they made the mistake of having Thin Lizzy as the support act....

It is curious, then, that the atheists on this forum write substantive, coherent, sell-organized, and original posts while you either cut and paste or write poorly organized posts that are long on assertion and short on support, outperforming you on every page as writers and as thinkers.
Not bad for "cattle," eh?
Self praise is not a good quality in any one. So do not take side and speak truth!

I'm not even going to look at the rest of your post because it's just dribble.
Though it's funny that you mention NOTHING creates itself.
So that means if your god existed, then it wouldn't be god. It would a creator for it too, which would be the god. Even then that god wouldn't be a god, and so on.

2.

You people are as dumb as rocks.
The theory of evolution attempt to explain the existing fact of evolution.

Just like the theory of gravity attempts to explain the existing fact of gravity.
Ans.

1. This is a "masterpiece" Question of every so called Atheist and thy think that by posting it, they have broken the "spinal cord" of all Believers in God.

But in reality this is a very childish question, because it is God, on which the Creation Process stops, both literally and logically.

He is the alone Who was present before Every Creation and He is the "Only One" in this entire Universe who was Ever Present and shall never die.

a. If some one created God (as you people think), then who created that some one and then who created him….it will be endless cycle.

b. That is why logic and reason also demands that this process must end and that is it ends.

Allah Knows Best.

02. You deluded people can only call "evolution as a fact".

Your Super Guru Charles Darwin was more humble and less confident (because he was a batter and more educated scholars than all of you people combined"….he was NEVER sure what he was proposing.

But you people "his pupil" have gone above the teacher himself and call evolution as a :"fact".

And equating TOE with Theory of Gravity shows that you have no knowledge of either of them!!

This is the LEAST I can say on this subject.

Your 3 'fundamentals' are wrong. In fact, trying to find the 'purpose' behind random events has driven you people bat-shyte crazy. I would have to abandon my reason to embrace those 'fundamentals' and I ain't anywhere near ready to do that. Try these 3 on for size ...

2 Freedom is Slavery
3 Ignorance is Strength

2.

Flowers lure insects for purposes of pollination.

Fruit provides nutrients for the seed.

They would fare better if we weren't plucking and eating them. How they must cry out to their Magnificent Vegetable God for our demise.
Ans.

That shows where your reasoning is wrong.

So you think fruits "Cry out" when we pluck them?

Like wise when we slaughter animals for our food?

And we mill corn for our bread?

You have no knowledge about the food chain, do you?

It is Creator's responsibility to provide for food for all of those whom He has created (and Quran confirms this), so this is the foolproof way in which He has achieved it.

Do you not know that if "every seed" of every fruit bearing tree germinated, the world would be full of nothing else but that tree.

So we eat fruits and thank our Creator, who made these fruits so palatable, so fresh and so tasty.

We eat the flesh of cattle and thank our Creator who made these cattle and gave us power over them.

We drink fresh water, we enjoy the cooling breeze,… and every thing invokes in us the Gratitude and Praise for Mercy, Wisdom and Knowledge of our Creator for all of these and much more of His favaours which we cannot count even if we try to (Also Confirmed in Quran).

So we fell down on our faces and thank the One Power who did all of that.

Allah Knows Best.

You are quite correct, allah does Know Best.

On opposite edges of Copley Square, separated by the makeshift memorial to the Boston Marathon bombing victims, two oases of calm reopened Wednesday and lured hundreds of visitors from the crowded plaza and surrounding streets.

GARBAGE IN MY OPINION
even though I`m a middle aged member of the `establishment` I think there`s some valid social commentary in a a lot of `rap`.

which is my favourite!

The genre of rap-porn which promotes objectification of women and the notion of easy money however you want to make it...or the "blunts, 40`s and bitches" brigade as I like to call them, do nothing at all which is worthwhile and create the very social problems they `rap` about. I`m talking about wu-tang clan et al here.
