Cause you know for a fact, or cause you just don't like that idea so it's best to ignore it?

Way to completely misconstrue the theory of evolution, Anonymous.
Also, stop acting so high and mighty; you're really not all that special.

Honest question here, if you are an atheist and you don't believe in evolution, then what do you believe in?

this is worded weird. it's like you want us to vote on whether you believe in evolution or not as an atheist.
better wording would be: "It's okay to be and atheist and not believe in evolution, amirite?"

Of course you can. Atheism simply means you don't believe in a god. It has nothing to do with a belief in Darwin's theory.

Well, here's the thing.

To be atheist is to be no religion whatsoever, to reject all religions.

Evolution is the only major scientific theory on the diversity of life, there are no rival theories that OP might believe in.

So, if you don't believe in evolution, there's really no other scientific theory to believe in as an alternative. Which means, that if you don't believe in evolution, you believe that the diversity of life just appeared out of nowhere, spontaneously, from some mysterious source.

That sounds like a religion to me.

For all we know, OP might believe in some unofficial theory that, while it isn't recognized as a rival theory, is still an alternative.
Or maybe OP believes in something like Lamarckism. It isn't evolution, and it isn't a religion, either.

I'm a Christian and I believe in evolution. Evolution is basically a proven fact by this point, anyway.

First of all, lots of Christians believe in an evolutionary course that has been divinely initiated by God. You don't have to believe in only one or the other. Secondly, not everyone is a fundamentalist Christian.

It's funny how by saying that, you sound stupid yourself. I know a ton of creatonists who have high education degrees, are above average intelligence and are pretty much rational in every way. But who needs to know that when you can base all your thoughts on stereotypes?

Quite a bit, actually. Most of them are/are becoming doctors, pharmacists, anything in the medical field, really. The others are going into equally important jobs.

In the future, please don't judge a person's intelligence by their religion.

Just because creationism requires the belief in God doesn't make it a religion. There are Muslim creationists, Christians creationists, and Jewish creationists, among others. Just as all those religions contain those that believe in intelligent design.

And I highly doubt you know lots of doctors holding high education degrees. That doubt is further raised when you claim many of them are creationists.

I never said creationism was a religion itself, but you obviously have one if you believe in it. Also, I'm guessing my last sentence was completely pointless to write. But yes, I do know many people in the medical field. Not all doctors, but most requiring a high science degree.

You can, but then you'd be twice as dumb. You're rejecting an accepted scientific fact just offhand, not because it conflicts with any pre-existing beliefs you already hold. Is this a view you actually hold, or are you merely hypothesising?
