    after going through some ideas by whom called themselves Atheists
    I was wondering how they can be very sure God doesn't exist?

    natural selection ? evolution ?
    were these theories proven to be probably true at least?
    where are the fossils?
    do proposed theories explain the major question ever, the origin of life?

    why don't Atheists call themselves Agnostics instead in case they have thought there are no enough evidences for creationism?

    thanx

    It's simple really. Atheists choose not to believe in fairytales and then base their lives on them! smile

    Creationism is religion's form of explaining.

    Evolution is humanity's form of explaining.

    Does Evolution answer the origins of life? Yes, it does. There is no need for fossils or anything else.

    Science has proven Earth in and of itself is Evolving. And, continues to evolve as time continues to progress forward.

    Life came from Earth's evolution.

    Religion has no supportive evidence for it's own creationism explanation, except to claim it comes from the "GOD" concept.

    Religion created by man. Therefore, the "GOD" concept is false, just as Jesus' work claims.

    Remember, the interpretation of Jesus' work is misconstrued and out of context. Also, religion was around and enslaving human beings, long before Jesus was ever born.

    Also, even within religion there is a conflict, because Jesus' work/teachings specifically states that He himself was against religion and the false "GOD" it claimed to worship.

    So, this pits Jesus's work against Moses and Abraham. Only one of them can be correct.

    Science uses Evolution and all other fields, such as biology, physiology, psychology and every other scientific method, to explain life. In the 70's it took a shot at debunking religion and in doing so, was attacked by the Roman Catholic Church.

    The Roman Catholic Church was successful at discrediting biology and psychology, because those were mere infant sciences. However, over the last 30+ years, those fields are FULLY CREDITED and no longer dismissable, as much as they were then.

    Therefore, Science HAS debunked Religion's claim of God. smile

      hi

      you say:
      (Science has proven Earth in and of itself is Evolving. And, continues to evolve as time continues to progress forward.)

      which could support the creature diversity matter


      and say:
      (Life came from Earth's evolution.)

      please back up your argument
      how could evolution explain the beginning of life?

      thanx

        The animals came from the planet, just like humans came from the planet. ALL life-forms that live on Earth, came from Earth's changing.

        Evolution doesn't need to explain the beginning of life. You ask a question that is useless. And, never actually need be answered. It's a theologians way to try and discredit science's achievements.

        Common-sense dictates Earth came to be. Afterwhich, Life began. Human life began once Earth evolved to support human life.

        Life is just that. It simply exists, because of Earth exists.

        No need for anything else.

      Cagsil, what you say about the Catholic Church attempting to discredit sciences they regarded as "infant" in the 1970's would be laughable if you didn't make the mistake of taking it seriously.

        Valerie, they are laughable, they did make that mistake and they don't question it. And what's funnier is they're so dogmatic about it! lol

    wyanjenposted 8 years ago

    To answer your question, I don't call myself an agnostic because... I'm an atheist.

    What do you mean by in case?
    Why don't christians call themselves Buddhists instead, in case there is "not enough evidence" of heaven?

        thanks.

        If you have a "just in case" inclination, that's cool.
        But you don't have enough conviction to really identify yourself as one thing or the other if you are saying "in case".

      I know very little about Gnostic beliefs.
      Do you have a hub about it? I'd be interested to read it.

        Hi Wynjen,It would be a very long complicated Hub so may take some time to do it justice.
        I'll try but not sure I'm capable of it.
        Made me a Christian again.
