I think it's as unlikely as any other random theory that has no supporting evidence, but I wouldn't say it's impossible and I think most atheists/agnostic liberals would agree with me.
    You lost me at atheist. Sure, all this just got here by accident. You betcha. Carry on.

    That is a nonsense statement because for something to be an accident, it must, by definition, occur in a way other than was intended.

    It is impossible for this all to have gotten here by "accident" if a deity doe snot exist. It can only happen if there is a deity.


    IMO, one should really have a basic understanding of the meanings of the words they chose to use before being arrogantly dismissive of someone else's beliefs.

    I can point you in the direction of a really good doctor to diagnose and treat your attention deficit disorder but other than that I'm not really sure if I'm the person to help you with your affliction here. I'm not a terribly patient person. Sorry about that.

    Note that many who support evolution fall into this camp as well.

    I've often said that, if god exists, it's clear that it chose to design certain laws that controlled the phenomena seen in the universe instead of choosing methods which require active guidance.

    Seems perfectly reasonable to me.
    I -thoroughly- enjoy those who believe that evoluton dispoves God.

    There's actually no basis for this inference you made. All that has to be shown is that the denigration on the basis of it being a theory is not a denigration at all. The implication actually is that not all theories are the same. Some, like evolution, germ theory and gravity, are a different kind of theory than a hypothesis to be tested.
    I may be wrong.

    I have no idea why someone would think that. At most evolution being true would simply disprove the creation story present in the bible, but only if one feels that the story needs to be taken literally.
