I want proof! by OurHandOfSorrow I want proof! by OurHandOfSorrow
"Your faith is not proof."

Unless you're debating about religion, your faith is proof of nothing.

I debate a fair bit sometimes, and whenever the opposing side uses their religion I want to punch them in the fucking face.

I am not an Atheist, but not everyone follows my faith, not everyone wants to follow my faith. And I respect that, so unless I'm debating about religion: I keep my beliefs AWAY from the debate.

I wish everyone else who I debate with would do the fucking same _

There's no proof that god does exist. Until I am given proof, I will not believe in that thing.

In fact, if you look up the definition, Faith is believing a certain phenomenon without any or sufficient evidence.

Thank you so much. I agree with this to the max.
I legit had a conversation that went like this.

Them: "You hating God means that he exists. You can't hate something that doesn't exist! I know he exists. I can feel it in my heart and soul!"

Me: "I hate mermaids and I know unicorns exist because I can feel their magic of punk fluffy sparkles tickling my flesh."


This stamp is going right on my profile.

Similar experience just after the premier of "God's Not Dead".

Them: "He proved that god's real! You can't hate something that doesn't exist!"

Me: "The only thing he proved was that Professor Radisson wasn't an atheist, which destroyed what little plot the movie had left. How can the movie be about Theism vs. Atheism if the main proponent of Atheism was a theist all along?!?"

Them: "But that was the point! All atheists are just mad at God!"

Me: "No. Misotheism is the 'hatred of God' and all misotheists are, by definition, theists."

Them: "Misotheism?"

Me: "Yep."

Why should I have to give proof if you're so convinced that God doesn't exist??

Who ever said that atheists are "convinced that God doesn't exist"? Part of the problem is not knowing what Atheism is or how the burden of proof works.

There's no proof for god and slightly more against the existence for god.
Faith alone doesn't prove anything.

Questioning things and wanting evidence is NOT being militant. That is simply like saying "I understand your claim, but I don't believe it. Please show me enough proof for me to actually believe your claim".

Disagreeing is just disagreeing. Call us militant once we try to ban religion and attack any and all people who believes in a god.

Interesting. Of course, I've heard plenty of theists use the term "militant atheist" before, but I've never been sure what they meant by it. Among most atheists, it is a pretty much a meaningless term or synonymous with Antitheism. But I guess, seeing as how atheists don't use the term, however theists want to define it is fine. On the other hand, atheists have no term for rude and disrespectful theists. Maybe I'll start calling them "militant theists" :D

wrong. its a simple fact that genes are passed on and the process of natural selection and randomness leads to divergence. over time, you get a planet of species.

If a creature has traits that help it survive and breed, it has a better chance of passing on those traits onto its children. Y'know, genetics and all that.

On the other hand, if a creature has traits that hinder its survival and breeding, it will be less likely to pass those traits onto the next generation.

The difference from generation to generation may not be great, but over time, the family line with the genes that help it survive will be more numerous than the line with less beneficial genes, eventually to the point of wiping out the creatures with poor genetics. Basically, the population will gradually evolve to be more suited to its environment.

Sometimes those creatures get mutations. Most of them are neutral, some are harmful, and only few are beneficial. Of course, you might expect that if harmful mutations are more common than the beneficial ones, they will overpower the good mutations and eventually wipe out all life.

But you have to keep in mind that the creatures unlucky to get the bad mutations are more likely to "get weeded out of" the gene pool. And of course, the other side of the coin is that the creatures that happen to get beneficial mutations are more likely to pass those mutations onto their children.

Evolution also leads to the birth of new species, most often with the help of geographical changes. Let's take an imaginary population of an imaginary species, living in peace... Until suddenly, a mountain range forms in the middle of the population! Of course, this takes millions of years, but the end result is that the population is divided into two.

The area between the coast and the mountains gets a lot of rain because of the evaporating ocean water, so the population on that side of the mountains treats water as something that's always available. Similarly, that population can look for food in the lakes, ponds and rivers that are everywhere, or if it's herbivorous, it will have a lot of plantlife to choose from.

However, the mountains block off the rainclouds coming from the sea, making that side much more dry. Because of the processes I've described above, the individuals of the species that can store water more efficiently are more likely to survive, and when they want to eat, they can't rely on creatures that live in water or need water to live.

Little by little, that population evolves into something different, perhaps eventually reaching the point of being a brand new species, unable to breed with the creatures on the other side of the mountains due to a large difference in genetics.

let me break it down for you. its not comeplete randomization, not a complete reset each time. you start with something simple, and one random thing is added. if it works the thing lives, if not it dies and that trait is genetically passed on. if not that thing will die and the trait will fade. over time we see analogus structures because the same things work and patterns because of the law of probability as well as other things.
