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 haven't given evidence. You just give articles of what you have read. You personally just belong to a group and claim yourself something that you know nothing about. Basically you have never done experiments at all or you haven't proven evolution. Keep trying.
How can you even use this line of reasoning? What 'experiments' have you done, what proof do you have of God, Jesus, Yahweh, Allah, Creator Bill ... whatever?

<quoted text>I'm going with 'bnzo'... sounds like science to me. Religions, for instance, are philosophical in nature and routinely reject / ignore 'new data'. Dogma is non-absorbent. Calling something a "theory" keeps it from ever becoming dogma.
I still think evolution is still philosophical. Unfortunately for all, nobody knows what really happens until they actually die.

A: They are all more intelligent primates than Christians.

So you see something and claim it? You haven't found evolution. You have made no such experiments to prove evolution. You just read. So how do you know that what you've read is true?
Look at this cool article, chosen completely at random ... from the Web's "Science Daily" site.

" http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/05/... ;

So ... how do you know something you've read is "true"?

1. The source.

Been visiting "Science Daily" daily for years. Never once found anything even vaguely sensational or counter-intuitive there.

2. References.

Every article has links to the original papers and the parent institutions.

3. Community.

A lot of people I trust reference these articles.

The concept has been incorporated into philosophy since it seems antithetical to religious 'theories'. Of course, nobody claims religious views are 'theories'... they claim them as fact. Facts that NOBODY can agree upon certainly aren't facts. There's absolutely nothing in Science or Nature to suggest that ANYTHING happens after death. At least nothing that has to do with some remnant of your persona surviving. It would be nice. My heaven would be the ability to flit around the Universe at the Speed of Thought. What wonders to behold. Maybe look up a few friends, have a few beers, a few laughs. We can console ourselves that our atoms will contribute to a future round of star formation ... perhaps being incorporated into some new life form. The immortality we all long for.

Stop with your educational barrier. I do know what it means, the question is, do you? Admit you don't and I will explain.

It is funny when bible bangers like him wail and weep about the ever growing mountain of evidence backing up evolution, yet they think that we coming from dirt makes perfect sense.

Just get a some dirt, wave a magic wand, say the magic words abracadabra Jesus and poof! Mankind!

Lol!

You didn't provide any proof we came from clay.

How is evolving from apes more impossible than the myth of being made from clay?

Nope. You know you're not laughing. All you are doing is pretending to laugh.
How do you "know" I'm not laughing?

Again, intelligence is a perception that you have about theists because you like to use the social barrier to attempt to feel smarter.
Actually, there is an established inverse relationship IQ&Education vs Religion.

You didn't answer the question:
Why are you denying evolution, a fact that has tons of evidence for it, yet you believe in something that has ZERO evidence for it?

Why do you keep talking of "barriers"?
You have a barrier in your own mind and that's the only thing preventing you from being even mildly intelligent.
You refuse to look at facts, refuse to believe factual events/items, and yet you believe wholeheartedly in things that have no evidence whatsoever for them.
