Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

We can either generalize and look at the larger picture, or examine instances on a case by case basis.
In general, poverty is a primary cause of unethical behavior. If we are concerned with decreasing unethical behavior, one of the ways to make systematic improvements is to decrease poverty. But that's just one piece in a huge complex puzzle.
Humanity would be better off if everyone was guided and shown the importance of empathy. Here's your homework. How do we do that?
nooooooo! sir, don't give me more homework, i'm already stuck on my maths one! lol

believing in santa, that's the only thing i can think of! i love him!!! lol. I don't think we can change the world, but we can try to be good ourselves and try to educate our family and children etc so that they also become good!

Why wouldn't an atheist go to a grave site and place flowers on a family member's grave?

Don't they believe when you're dead, you're dead! What would be the point in going to the gravesite? You could just put the flowers in a vase and feel sad there just as easily as anywhere else.

The penguin is easy to explain, under the right conditions, cormorants could eventually loose their flight and become better adapted to aquatic life and eventually become peguin like.
There is no need for penguins to fly, just like elephants. Had the encroachment of humans been slower, in a few thousand years the fauna of Africa could have become much smaller. There were pigmy elephants and mammoths in islands where the food supply was limited. The isolation was gradual enough to slect out larged ones for smalleer and smaller ones.
failure to adapt.... one could wonder what gave the bird the intelligence to not only fly, but to lay and hatch eggs, gather food for their young and teach them to fly. I watch the magpies every year, and am amazed at how Papa Magpie takes on the same caring role as Mama Magpie, and how the little ones stare at the ground, waiting for a bit of movement to pounce on. When they get old enough, if they keep squawking and squealing for their food, they sort of get pushed around, making them grow up and fend for themselves. Wouldn't a Penguin like to be able to fly out of trouble as much as a bird did and does? Given all these millions of years to 'evolve' into much more clever beings, why have they chosen to stay the same, when they have obvious weaknesses?

Will the Polar bears adapt to the global warming, or will they just become extinct? Why can't they adapt, or go back to being a brown bear?

***What is happening to our polar bear population?

As you can see in this picture, these polar bears are stranded on a melting glacier. They are probably already dead. This is no joke. Because of Global warming, the ice is melting, spring comes earlier, and winter later, the polar bears have less time to hunt to store food in their bodys.- madie August 24, 2007 SOURCE

Endangered species status of the polar bear to be decided May 15
April 29, 2008
Mongabay.com

A federal judge has ordered the Bush administration to stop delaying its decision on whether to list the polar bear as an endangered species. Environmentalists say the bear is threatened by melting sea ice in its Arctic habitat.

Judge Claudia Wilken of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California ruled Monday that the Department of the Interior has violated the law by missing the deadline for filing a decision on the status of the polar bear by four months. She said the agency would have to arrive at a decision by May 15, 2008.

The Department of the Interior had sought to delay the decision until June 30, 2008. It had already missed a January 2008 deadline.

You are not very knowledgeable on the subject and I don't want to sit here and beat you up over it.
Here is a very simple way to explain evolution. If you really needed a job and the only job out there was bagging groceries, what would you do? You would learn to bag groceries or die from starvation.
Some time later, a job as a rocket scientist opens up and your bagging job ends. Can you be a rocket scientist? No, so you are in trouble. Jenny could, so she took the job and lived on.
Right before you die, you find a job as a cashier! Lucky for you, you can learn that job and you survive another day.
Unfortunately, evolution takes a very long time, not 200 years.
Exactly ~ and the scientists are telling us how long animals have been around, like many millions of years, and they haven't been smart enough to evolve into anything else other than what they started out as.

If an animal is smart enough to move into higher ground before a Tsunami hits, why can't it be smart enough to adapt? Seeing as we apparently have all adapted from the result of a big bang theory in the first place?

Well that's what we do, we cremate in my culture. I never understood why people want to be physically close to their loved one's dead body, to feel close to them! If you understand what i'm saying?

Yes, I do understand.... I have only recently changed my mind about being cremated, and now will be buried instead. I don't believe my Soul will be buried, but I do think we will all know we will be there together. I also believe that I go to the grave site for the person who has given up their ghost, and that they will know of the visit, and I mourn where ever I sit....

Wrong. Living creatures have been around for billions of years and most of them have evolved into different animals.

mmmh; I have often heard people say that their departed loved ones would have been proud of their funerals, we choose their favourite songs, and we now celebrate their lives in a different way. I guess I am a bit more reflective since my sojourn to my birth place and my
spiritual journey, as such :)
