Double shrug.
For support of evolution it is totally irrelevant whether people are believing or atheist.

Darwin's attack on creation
Darwin erected a straw man caricature of creation to attack
"Often the Creationist position seems merely a straw man-set up only to be knocked down"
"Yet even here, where Darwin's arguments are strongest, nagging questions remain. For example, a reader of the Origin might be justified in wondering what Creationist view Darwin is referring to. Perhaps this is a problem more for the present-day reader. Darwin's contemporaries may have known exactly what he meant, though I doubt it. Often the Creationist position seems merely a straw man-set up only to be knocked down. The constraints on space in the Origin, which led Darwin to abandon his original intention of arguing on both sides of the mutability issue, add to this feeling. The result is that the Creationist position is never clearly defined in the Origin." (Gale B.G., "Evolution Without Evidence: Charles Darwin and the Origin of Species," University of New Mexico Press: Albuquerque NM, 1982, p.139).[top]

Science, including the Theory of Evolution, presents and explains known and observed facts of the natural world.
And if your "faith" is so threatened by the facts being shown, than your faith is pretty damn weak.
I'm not threatened by anything.
In fact, I think its funny to watch you people play with bones and give them attributes they never had.

There is no science of numbers. Numbers are arbitrary, values and variables can be changed at whim, the way the math operates can change dependent upon rules what mathematicians call axioms. Math CAN be applied to reality, in which case it CAN be a good tool to HELP science, but is not a science in and of itself.
To you, mathematics is not science but to reality, it is.

Of course you are threatened.

Why else would the Discovery Institute exist, and why would they produce "the Wedge Document"?

Why the MULTITUDE of legal contests against the teaching of science in SCIENCE classes?

Why are YOU here, attempting -- and failing miserably, btw -- to defend the literal interpretation of Genesis?

Mathematics does NOT exist in reality outside of our human use of it.

Mathematics a human mental concept, not a physical reality.

I just gave you a detailed explanation as to why it is not a science. The thing with math is it DOESN'T HAVE to be APPLIED, and is often completely abstract. Hence it is a language, not a science. English can also be applied to everything you mention above, but English is not a science.
But it's okay, you're used to being wrong all the time by now.
Wrong and wrong.
Mathematics is an applied discipline in Physics, Chemistry etc.
The use of Graph, Angles, Tangents, Cosines, Sines, Exponentals and Logarithms etc, are all courses under mathematics, that are scientific...

Why do you "fundaMENTALshit xristian creotards" LIE so much.

Isn't LYING a sin in your religion?

Don't you get sent to HELL for LYING as much as you do?

You See Dweebscicle....They Can Theorize About It....But Nothing Other Then That.
Yes, Sciences Inventions Are Great And Amazing....But Those Are Seperate From Theory.
I And Most Everyone Applaud The Inventors, And Some Of Them Used Theory To Begin With. But, They Excelled Beyond Theory, And Actually Produced Something Of Value. Your Religion Merely Relies On Theory Without Producing Anything Provable.
And Has A Cult Following Of Foot Soldiers.....Hmmm
Yes, yes, yes, yes, and yes.

Any more questions fool? You show you are a liar by the way that you ask "questions". Also as usual you are wrong. Countless inventions could not exist without theory. Perhaps you have never heard of a man named Michael Faraday and his theories. If you use anything electronic you use things that rely on theories. Your continual denial of theories only reinforces the fact that you are incredibly under educated when it comes to science. You seem to have no idea what a scientific theory is. Nor will you ever have any idea of how to use them.

If you are not threatened why are you afraid to state your beliefs? The best you have done is to say that everything was "created". That is an all but meaningless statement. That is the action of a person who knows that his beliefs are indefensible.

I heard someone say once that economists ain't scientists and are simply apologists for the existing social order.
Economics is a science that deals with the studies of human behaviour, as a relationship between ends and scarce means, which have alternative uses- Prof. Lord Lionel Robbins....
Economics laws and theories include, law of variable proportions, the law of demand and supply, the theory of consumer behaviour and the law of diminishing marginal utility etc. All these qualifies Economics to be called, a science.

Without the study of human behaviour, Physics or Chemistry can never. Economics laws and theories are all scientific.
Mathematics is and will always be science.

It has been used to proof god can't exist.
So this is the reality according to you, proven by the proper application of the dicipline of mathematics.

Maybe you are now starting to understand that it is so versatile that it can be used to play with, just as language and philosophy.
Flatland or 2 dimensional land did not ring a bell, when that example should have done so.

Going very simple here: pick up zero (apple).
Well you should be capable by your own assertion of mathematics being real.
