Nope. Human-created laws and theories are abstractions. They are mental models. They are not reality itself.

That's a meaningless statement. Economies existed long before anyone created laws or theories to describe them.
You don't know what you are talking about. Economics laws, theories and principles, are practical. The law of demand, supply are practical. We see them daily.

Once again, ow. It must suck to be you.
Oh ya 30 atheist post that as a source so it must be real!

Encyclopedia Britannica kind of trust worthy. More then lying atheist.

A survey published in the 2005 Encyclopedia Britannica stated that 2.3% of the world's population consists of individuals who profess "atheism, skepticism, disbelief, or irreligion, including the militantly antireligious." In regards to the 2.3% figure just mentioned, the 2005 survey cited by Encyclopedia Britannica survey did not include Buddhist in regards to the 2.3% figure and Buddhism can be theistic or atheistic."

Wikipedia:

"Another survey attributed to Britannica shows the population of atheists at around 2.4% of the world's population.[citation needed] It is difficult to determine whether atheism is growing or not"

Wikipedia :

"2005 poll by AP/Ipsos surveyed ten countries. Of the developed nations, people in the United States were most sure of the existence of God or a higher power (2% atheist, 4% agnostic)"

Wikipedia :

"According to one estimate, atheists make up about 2.3% of the world's population"

"In 2007, a Pew Forum survey found that the atheist population in the United States was 1.6% of the American population."

Your sources are old and out of date.

My poll is the current and up to date one.

Did you not see that even the Christian Science Monitor accepted that poll?

Poor Langy, it must suck to be you.

Yes, we find language to be important. That still doesn't make them sciences.
Point of correction:
Mathematics is not language. It is in-built in us all. Languages has or have origins from a particular place or location.

"Global atheism is shrinking and demographic changes in the United States and the world are expected to shrink the influence of American secularism.
In 2012, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary reported that globally every day there are 800 less atheists per day, 1,100 less non-religious (agnostic) people per day and 83,000 more people professing to be Christians per day.
In 2011, the American Spectator declared concerning research published in the International Bulletin of

Missionary Research:
The report estimates about 80,000 new Christians every day, 79,000 new Muslims every day, and 300 fewer atheists every day. These atheists are presumably disproportionately represented in the West, while religion is thriving in the Global South, where charismatic Christianity is exploding."

Again an improper quote without a link to a source, also known as a lie.

I stand in awe at the chutzpah of these creatard lying cowards. They try to claim they have no burden of proof. They do not know how to recognize evidence. They will do nothing to debunk evolution. And yet in true Black Knight mode they actually think that they are winning.

One of the reason that your side always loses court cases is that part of being a judge is learning how to recognize evidence. They have to know how to recognize proper evidence for criminal cases when they hear them. That experience has allowed them to properly judge scientific evidence when they see it and even though they do not have training in evolution even conservative judges have known which side is right when it comes to whether evolution or creation is a religion.

Guess what?

The creation side always loses.

President Starky accosted one of the Evolutionists for using the word "blessing," which has religious implications.

Sorry&#65292; Prez&#65292;but if you’re asking us to watch ourselves from using words with supernatural implications, you’re asking a lot.
Do you realize that “aspect” and “consider” have their origins in astrology?
Or that “algebra” has Moslem origins, the first syllable being a contraction of “Allah”?
The word “enthusiasm” has also religious implications, the second syllable being God’s name in Greek.
And how about the names of the days of the week, which imply Norse mythology, and the names of the months, which imply Roman mythology?
The years are dated according to the Christian calendar in both South Korea and China, and those two countries sure as heck aren’t Christian.
(Woops, I just used the word “heck.”)
For that matter, you can’t even call a person named Theodore or Dorothy by name, since both names mean “gift of God.”

The list is endless:“godly,”“ungodly,”“Tha t’s the spirit!”“devilment,”“devil-may -care,”“a devil of a time,”“bewitching,““cast a spell,”“wizardry,”“heavenly,”“ angelic,”“You’re an angel!”“You little devil!”
To say nothing of the word “fairy,” a favorite word among gay-bashers.

Even names of actual objects have supernatural origins, such as angel food cake, devil’s food cake, and the siren on the police car.
Also names of animal species, such as the Tasmanian devil and the bird of Paradise.

That’s all I have to say, so now I must say good-by.
(Woops, I just remembered that “good-by” literally means “God be with you.”)
