No, my number 1 point of reference is todays science. I understand Darwins theory and use it in minor ways when talking about religion.<quoted text>
Excellent point. But NONE has the weight, influence, and power Darwin did and does with the atheist movement. Charles Darwin is the atheist's number one point of reference. Would you not agree?
But, it is todays science that means the most to me. It has already proven that much of the Bible is pure mythology--not factual--and that is going a long way in proving that the Christian God is not real. Evolution is just the icing on the cake.
I harbor no hate towards Christians or their Gods and mini-god Jesus. I just think they are myths.
