    And yes, they would both fith that. They hold with ardor and faith the principle that there is no God and that Evolution occurs.

    Both are faith as neither can be proven.

    You obviously don't understand logic or the scientific method.


    Atheists have no reason to believe in god. Do you believe in Unicorns, leprechauns, and garden gnomes? If not, does that make your disbelief in with regards to unicorns, leprechauns, and garden gnomes a religion?

    Arguing god doesn't exist is chasing orbiting teapots. Having no reason to believe god exists is simple logic because there is on proof, aka objective evidence, that god exists.


    If you're that disconnected with science and the scientific method I suggest you cancel all visits to any doctor, stop taking any kind of medication, and quit using virtually any piece of technology invented over the past 30 years. Kiss your computer good-bye, it was designed and built on scientific principles.

    It's very likely you know nothing about the depth of the young man's theological knowledge. If that's the case then your post is just an expression of prejudice.

    It's not the schools place to dictate what a student's speech includes or excludes, especially one on his way out who doesn't give a **** about what the school thinks.

    So you see a short video and you already know exactly what the kid does and doesn't know? I've gotta get what you have to have this kind of knowledge.

    No. My point was the opposite. On the basis of the short video no one can know. I'm not the one making claims. I'm just pointing out that claims without evidence are prejudice.
