    Not actually the case at all. There are theistic evolutionists however, all atheists subscribe to the philosophy of evolution, they have no other choice once they accept atheism.

    Furthermore, evolution cannot even get started as life absolutely cannot start from non-life. Only life begets life. So, evolution is dead in the water scientifically before it can even get started. Evolution is the philosophy of atheism. Many atheists have made the statement that Darwin made it possible to be an intellectually fulfilled atheist.

    Evolution has nothing to do with the origin of life. How hard is this for people to understand. Again, all it does is describe small incremental changes, over long periods of time. It has nothing to do with atheism. It is not a philosophy.

    There are hypotheses about how life started but they are just hypotheses.

    What is your scientific proof that only life can beget life?

    Using it the way you are would be the same as me saying that a satanic cult are christians because they used pieces of your religion to concoct their own.

    Apparently VERY hard since this has been said here on these forums for many, many years.

    That is precisely why evolution is NOT in conflict with God, per se. Genesis perhaps, yes.

    But it is a fact that NO MATTER HOW LIFE CAME TO BE ON THIS PLANET; EVOLUTION WOULD HAVE PROCEEDED IN PRECISELY THE SAME WAY.

    That includes placement by the hand of God, seeding by aliens, or spontaneous combustion. No matter.

    And as could be foreseen, no one could come up with a valid answer to my question. Curious how the postulate itself is faulty and no extremist can see it. Curious indeed.

    No one saying otherwise has ever read the science of evolution. Period. But they sure like to talk authoritatively about it!

    Hugh says he was taught these things in college!!!!!!!! lol

    "Christian science" is an oxymoron.
    "Social networking" is an oxymoron.
