Starky's views on the supposed decreasing number of atheists is based upon one poorly run survey which would have an error bar greater than the supposed change in number of atheists.
And of course it was a survey based upon Americans, not the whole world.

The universe was born from quantum fluctuations that created a potential difference in an infinite infinitesimal.
Again we agree. The video I linked goes over that, in a bit more rigorous of a discussion. Still aimed at the general populace, or the educated general populace. He explains how the universe is "flat" and why it has to be "flat". Of course that is an idea that Starkey would get totally wrong.

The standard in science if there is no evidence to support a the existence of something is to use the Null Hypothesis:

In the case of the existence of god that means the standard is to assume that in absence of evidence is that he does not exist.

There is more testimony of Gods existence than there is of a missing link.
In fact, most oath's of office require that the person taking the oath swear to God.
People place their hand on a book with Gods words swearing to tell the truth.(So help you God)
Do you swear to the missing link that you'll tell the truth next time you post?

Oh, by the way, there is no missing link anymore, all the evidence has come together with DNA's contribution to the archaeological and paleoanthropological evidence.

One more gap closed for you guys

I never said there was proof.

Then you probably need to check into what DNA science has been up to lately. You can also visit the Smithsonian: http://humanorigins.si.edu/

Also, we know there was never an Adam and Eve.
