I struggled with this for awhile, but people that go about killing in the name of God is cultural Christianity. Authentic Christianity, "Know God, know peace" can be seen in the ministry of Jesus and his disciples! :)
God isn't fictional though, there is scientific evidence that points towards intelligent design (the big bang theory, anyone?) and many "pillars of atheism" for example Charles Darwin's tree of Life, Haeckel's embryos, the Stanley Miller Experiment, or the "missing link" the archaeopteryx have either not been proven as true, or been proved false.
The BBT doesn't even pertain to the Origin of the Universe. It basically states that matter was dense and hot and it is now less dense and less hot. Scientists even concede that they cannot prove how we got the matter that was around before the "Big Bang"
Who said anything about karma? The post said "she will pay for whatever she did in an afterlife" Karma is a notion that has to deal with reincarnation, and the term "an afterlife" doesn't necessarily point to Hinduism. This person could have simply meant that on Judgement Day Casey Anthony, like the rest of us, will be judged by what we have done.
I think small scale natural selection has occurred, but I've seen no evidence that supports the assumption that large scale natural selection has occurred. Pertaining to the Cambrian explosion, I believe it points towards intelligent design. There are animals that we have fossils of that don't have ancestors like Darwinism says they should. There are also irreducibly complex small celled organisms that are around that can only function as a complete whole. Darwinism states that beings must occur and then evolve to their surroundings, but an irreducibly complex organism can only survive with all of their parts. I think that for the most part origin of life science, geology, and other sciences actually support intelligent design.
What you say about fossilized evidence is true. But what about the Cambrian explosion, which contrary to Darwinian Evolution, is the rapid change and rapid appearance of new types of life and life forms that are drastically different than anything that we had before hand. We have soft tissued fossils before the explosion and after. The Cambrian explosion is too big to be explained away by a guess that we don't have fossils that would validate Darwin's theory. People that are against Darwin's theory have concrete proof that it does not occur the way Darwin thought. Darwin even conceded that the fossil record does not support his assertions. The burden of proof is on Darwinists, and until they can supply the world with sufficient fossil records to connect what we have post Cambrian explosion to what we had pre Cambrian explosion, I refuse to believe in such fairy tales.
I was just trying to ask a scientific question, I'm not going to say that evolution didn't happen or doesn't happen, but I will say that Darwinian evolution doe's not happen and the fossil record has shown it doesn't happen. I wont say that the Big Bang didn't happen but I will say that the Big Bang theory is about the universe's expansion and doe's not account for the mass singularity that caused the Big Bang
What evidence do you have that we all originate from single celled organisms? Please only respond with scientific evidence... tests that have been run, experiments that have been proven conclusive, etc.
I can scientifically deny that Charles Darwin's "Tree of Life" is false if you'd like me to. Micro evolution happens, we see that with dogs, horses and other animals that are bred for certain things. But what Darwin theorized was decent with modification, that was very slow. But the Cambrian explosion was, geologically speaking, very very fast.
