I just want to say that atheism is as much as a religion as christianity. Atheist place their faith in science and have made war on religious people since Darwin.
THERE IS NO MORE PROOF FOR THE THEORY OF MACRO EVOLUTION THAN THERE IS OF GOD
Message to ALL CHRISTIANS: If an Atheist wants to debate you, walk away. I'm not saying your incapable of an intellectual conversation, but a debate requires more evidence than blind faith, you will never win, so stop trying.
Just have comfort in your own faith and be done with it, your god supposedly talks about nay-sayers in the bible does he not? Follow his instructions, it's what you were born to do after all, right?

A debate in which a Christian debates an Atheist on the origin of all things is really just a debate between two people who have no friggen idea what actually happened the first instant our universe came into being.
I say, shake hands and get over it. There are too many genius Christian scientist trying to prove God created it all and too many genius Atheist scientists trying to prove the Christian scientist wrong. I wonder what these people could have done for humanity.
Wow... You remind of the antithesis of the fundamental Christian. Loud and just as ignorant.
Some atheists just really get off on putting down Christianity. Most just move on and the rest become skeptic agnostics.
First, name 10 genius Christian scientists and I will counter with 50 genius Atheist scientists.
Second, call me loud all you want, it doesn't change the fact that my beliefs are much more rational and logic based than anyone who needs Religion.
How do you figure I'm ignorant?. I was raised Christian and my Grandfather tried to turn me into a minister for half of my life, I know more about Christianity and it's origins than 90% of it's followers do so you might wanna check what you type before you hit the reply button friend.
You remind me of the people who are afraid of being politically incorrect and just decide to stay in the middle because they are afraid of any sort of argument or conflict, no spine at all. Oh and any scientist that studies the field of evolution grasps a much greater understanding of where we came from than any bible thumping hypocrite.

The blind faith Christians posses in their beliefs is not, in any circumstance, comparable to the reality that is science and evolution. That is an expected response but anything you can find evidence of (evolution) does not share the same category as something as illogical as religion.
Religion plays a big part in our everyday lives, no matter what faith you have, so of course I'm going to criticize it, I will criticize it until the day I die because religion is nothing but a handicap to humanity, you may wish to stand idly while your society is raped of intellect but I prefer to actually try to find someone or something who can answer my question of "What is the point of religion and what good will ever come from it?" Saying it is ignorant for an Atheist to criticize religion is pretty much like saying it is ignorant for a Republican to criticize a Democrat, both are present in society and both have different views.
We make double standards for the religious, we drop our logical way of thinking and make exceptions, what a load of crap.
One day, Christians will be the minority, oh what a glorious day this will be.
edit; still waiting on your 10 christian genius scientists...

...have you heard of Alfred Jarry? or maybe "pataphysics"...anyways perhaps you'll like this quote from Jarry....
"God is the tangential point between zero and infinity."
•We are a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian ministry founded on the conviction that every man, woman and child should have a decent, safe and affordable place to live. We build with people in need regardless of race or religion. We welcome volunteers and supporters from all backgrounds.
The concept that grew into Habitat for Humanity International was born at Koinonia Farm, a small, interracial, Christian community outside of Americus, Georgia. Koinonia Farm was founded in 1942 by farmer and biblical scholar Clarence Jordan.
William Booth embarked upon his ministerial career in 1852, desiring to win the lost multitudes of England to Christ. He walked the streets of London to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the poor, the homeless, the hungry, and the destitute.
Booth abandoned the conventional concept of a church and a pulpit, instead taking his message to the people. His fervor led to disagreement with church leaders in London, who preferred traditional methods. As a result, he withdrew from the church and traveled throughout England, conducting evangelistic meetings. His wife, Catherine, could accurately be called a cofounder of The Salvation Army.
