I have never made those claims on this site. An atheist is a non-believer in the gods of the Hindus, Buddhists, Christians, and all the other thousands of present and former gods that people have worshiped. That you connect not believing in a god with some advanced scientific theory that only the most educated and elite of a certain field of science even understand is not logical.<quoted text>
Oh dear, did i rain on your parade? It's a free internet baby. Last i checked anyone can comment. Your attempt at ad hominem is quaint though.
Actually you are making a claim; you are saying nothing existed and then it exploded on its own; that's how we came to be. Even your g-d particle is a physical thing. i don't have that kind of faith. i need more proof than that.
Everything is fractal; like begets like. In our reality, you can't have nothing produce something unless the so-called nothing is an intelligence and power beyond our capacity to know it except as it reveals itself to us. Anybody can know the Mighty One; it takes an open mind and humility. That's all.
I HAVE stated that evolution is proved because it has been and there are examples even to today of two existing groups of the same species that have developed different physical characteristics to adapt to where they are physically located, relative to food, and temperature. Both examples in these rare cases are still existing, however most evolving takes place over millions of years so finding two examples of different stages both alive at the same time, is the exception.
I accept the results of what the educated people have presented to us as being true because I do have a science degree and understand what is involved in being able to present something as a proved fact rather than someone's imagination, but I certainly have not done the leg work myself.
With natural things, that science has proved, there are clues and evidences to investigate. With god beliefs there is no evidence and so far no clues. We have only the passed on traditions and legends which are often documented in ancient texts, most of which have been proved to not be entirely factual (in most cases not factual at all).
Perhaps though, in the spirit of the purpose of a discussion topic, one might take the position of discussing each others points of views rather than just attacking someone because he/she claims to be an atheist.
