Uh, no.

The ONLY ones who think this are members of an increasingly small and irrelevant bronze age, goat herder FAIRY TALE cult.

The VAST majority of the people around the world accept it as best scientific explanation for the diversity of life we see on planet Earth, past and present.

You should get out more and talk to people outside of your wacko "fundie xristian" church.

Go find a few Japanese Shinto or Indian Hindus or Chinese Daoists or Thai Buddhists or Israeli Jews or Italian Catholics or German agnostics or Dutch atheists to talk to. You may learn something.

This would be a LIE!

There is NO logic, reason, research or empirical evidence that your bronze age, goat herder FAIRY TALE "god" exists, or that "it" did any of the things that your bronze age, goat herder FAIRY TALES say "it" did.

[QUOTE who="President Starky"]<quoted text>In fact, most oath's of office require that the person taking the oath swear to God.

This would be a LIE!

It may be something done here in the US (and in radical fundamentalist Islamic countries), but it is rarely done elsewhere around the world. Heck, there are LOTS of countries that don't even recognize your "god" so their public officials swearing an oath to "it" would be astonishingly stupid.

Starky's views on the supposed decreasing number of atheists is based upon one poorly run survey which would have an error bar greater than the supposed change in number of atheists.

He explains how our universe could have started "out of nothing".
I meant more like life was created out of stuff.
The universe was born from quantum fluctuations that created a potential difference in an infinite infinitesimal.

Federal Executive and Legislative Branch Oaths

In the United States, the oath of office for the President is specified in the Constitution (Article II, Section 1):

"I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States."[58]

The oath may be sworn or affirmed (in which case it is called an affirmation instead of oath). Although not present in the text of the Constitution, it is customary for modern presidents to say "So help me God" after the end of the oath. For officers other than the President, the expression "So help me God" is explicitly prescribed, but the Judiciary Act of 1789 also explains when it can be omitted (specifically for oaths taken by court clerks): "Which words, so help me God, shall be omitted in all cases where an affirmation is admitted instead of an oath."[59]

The Constitution (Article VI, clause 3) also specifies:

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the members of the several state legislatures, and all executive and judicial officers, both of the United States and of the several states, shall be bound by oath or affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.

And of course it was a survey based upon Americans, not the whole world.

Again we agree. The video I linked goes over that, in a bit more rigorous of a discussion. Still aimed at the general populace, or the educated general populace. He explains how the universe is "flat" and why it has to be "flat". Of course that is an idea that Starkey would get totally wrong.

The standard in science if there is no evidence to support a the existence of something is to use the Null Hypothesis:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Null_hypothesis

In the case of the existence of god that means the standard is to assume that in absence of evidence is that he does not exist.

Oh, by the way, there is no missing link anymore, all the evidence has come together with DNA's contribution to the archaeological and paleoanthropological evidence.

One more gap closed for you guys

Then you probably need to check into what DNA science has been up to lately. You can also visit the Smithsonian: http://humanorigins.si.edu/

Also, we know there was never an Adam and Eve.

Oh yeah, you probably have some small percentage of Neanderthal blood/genes in your body.
