Well, obviously if billions don't agree, there is some degree of controversy. According to a worldwide census, only 14.09% of the people in the world are non-religious and 12.48% are classified as "other". I'll give or take a few of the religious and say some believe God or a god used evolution as a means of creation, but for the most part...regardless of what the scientific crowd or atheist choose to believe...when discussing the TOE as it relates to the evolution of man...there is definitely controversy.
If all atheists and agnostics were to leave the U.S., 98 percent of the members of the Academy of Sciences, and two percent of the prison population, would be gone.

Oh please...gimme a break here. The amount of time, effort and money spent on research in the attempt to prove the theory of evolution clearly exhibits the NEED for evolutionists to believe in evolution.

what happens whenever an egotistical communist/socialist/humanist/a theist regime takes control of a government? usually the genocide of their perceived undesireables, no?

Collanized?

Thanks for your condolences. She had an unnecessary surgery that the great field of medical science botched, she was unable to recover from it and died 11 days after the surgery. She was only 71. Just one week earlier, she was out riding her horse like she did every Saturday. I miss the ole bag, she was a good friend.
I normally do not dig at old wounds, so if you do not wish to continue with what I am about to point out, I will understand.

However, how do you know that it was the surgery that killed her and not complications unrelated to the surgery? There are a thousand ways in which the body can "just so suddenly die," and surgery doesn't always help, many complications that are attributed to surgery by the patients or other people are also often unrelated.

You have put yourself in the same position as a Christian.. PROVE to us there isnt a GOD?

Now since SCIENCE and Atheist has YET to prove the nonexistence of God,(regardless of your stupid claim other wise), because if you can honestly say that you have indeed searched out and deeply examined all proposed evidences of God and found them all lacking.
You would be a certifiable fool, and liar or both.

We both KNOW there are no atheists/or scientist who can even be aware of all the evidences that may exist for God,(besides nature itself) nor even of all proposed evidences since this would require a knowledge of every argument for God that has ever existed as well as all possible other evidences. To truly KNOW there is zero evidence for God’s existence implies that the atheist claiming this knows all possible evidences for God’s existence. Which is ridiculas!!!
Ridiculas?

The 2nd Law of Thermodynamics refers to a closed system.
You are either horrible uneducated or a liar, or both.
Quote the "Law of Biogenesis" to which you refer.
For the question of veracity RE: chrom 2 fusion, supply a link to a scientific site which agrees with you.
What you have is christian apologetic, weak pleading at best.
The Second Law of thermodynamics applies to all systems, open or closed. The law states, that "the entropy of an "isolated" system does not decrease". It doesn't say "closed". In the natural sciences an isolated system is a physical system without any external exchange neither matter nor energy can enter or exit, but can only move around inside. Truly isolated systems cannot exist in nature. The Second Law prohibits any functioning biological mechanism from falling together by pure chance, without assistance or plan, using only the properties of matter.

I'm neither uneducated nor a liar.

That was a typo...my mistake. I meant to type Abiogenesis. Shall I quote that? Doubt it...surely you realize...it doesn't happen.

I supplied a link re: chromosome 2 that provides excellent scientific data ( http://creation.com/chromosome-2-fusion-2 )...if you're too closed minded to read it or simply fear you don't possess the intelligence to argue it...then that isn't my problem.

Hmm..that's interesting data there Catch...a more recent study shows 11% of prisoners are atheist or non-religious, but I'm more apt to believe your 2% is closer to the truth. On the other hand, the most recent study I could find...it was in 2009, shows this:

A recent survey (June 2009) of over 2,500 U.S. scientists shows that the scientific community has a very different view of God from society as a whole. Only 33% of scientists believe in "God" while another 18% believe in a "universal spirit" or "higher power".(See source 1.) The study concluded that scientists are less likely to believe in a "God" or "Higher Power" as the general public.

It can be broken down even further by the different areas of study:

Biological/Medical Field: 32% believe in "God", another 19% don't believe in "God" but believe in a "Higher Power", and 41% do not believe in either.

Chemistry: 41% believe in "God", another 14% don't believe in "God" but believe in a "Higher Power", and 39% do not believe in either.

Geoscience: 30% believe in "God", another 20% don't believe in "God" but believe in a "Higher Power", and 47% do not believe in either.

Physics/Astronomy: 29% believe in "God", another 14% don't believe in "God" but believe in a "Higher Power", and 46% do not believe in either.

By contrast, 95% of Americans believe in "God" or a "Higher Power" with approx. 83% having a religious affiliation according to a 2006 survey conducted by the Pew Research Center.

Now that...that surprised me. Go figure
