Why do atheists claim that the concept of God is so unlikely
Hello, I am hoping someone can explain the atheist viewpoint to me on the validity and probability of God's existence.

Most atheists will claim that the facts show the concept of a God to be so utterly unlikely as to be considered impossible.

But, this is not what the facts show at all.

The theory of Evolution does not attempt to explain the origin of life, nor can it explain the existence of life from the first organic cell onward.

How does natural selection explain the eye, for example? How can atheists claim that complex organs like the eye could have evolved, when everything we know about the eye says that it is useless unless all the components are in place at the same time.

As for reptile-mammal transition evidence, where is it in "evidence"?

What are the actual mechanics that achieve it? Not speculation, actual. Not variation in a genus [which evolutionists cling to as being evolution]. Biological changes where a living entity can be observed to be changing into something different, breaching the barriers of its DNA.

For reptiles to become mammals, that breach must have happened. So, someone please show where reptiles are in a state of doing so today - where that transition is taking place.

The facts show that what is overwhelmingly in evidence is what the Bible itself says, that like begets like, and we all rely on that to occur in all facets of life, from growing/eating fruit and vegetables through to human/animal procreation.

It seems that the evidence supports the concept of God, rather than the atheistic claim that "God probably doesn't exist".

We don't claim "god" is unlikely.


We state categorically that it's just superstitious bullshit for the weak of mind to have something to embrace.

Howdy. It's fairly simple really. No scientific evidence of god or any other supernatural force has ever been established.

Stop it. When you say "most atheists" you almost always are incorrect.

Oh?

Yes, that falls under abiogenesis. Different topic entirely.

Charles Darwin provided the explanation for the eye, and included example of all of the transitory stages, in his original work on evolution. So you are literally more than a century out of date.

Fossils, taxonomical classification and DNA.

Bolding mine. This sentence indicates that you are fundamentally misunderstanding evolution and how it works.

This the same bible that claims that bats are birds?
...that claims that plants came on the third day and the sun the fourth?
...that claims that woman was made from man's rib?

It seems that you need to read your bible and a number of scientific textbooks before telling us what the evidence supports.

Generally because many concepts of gods just keep pushing back and back into any void of knowledge one can fit, and it's a perpetual element of the idea with each new major waves of knowledge about our surroundings every few centuries.

RE: Why do atheists claim that the concept of God is so unlikely
If you had taken any time at all to actually study evolution you would already know the answers to your questions. Please Start here: An Index to Creationist Claims

Also you say science can't explain our origins even though they can with a solid foundation of evidence, reality and logic but they can't build a time machine and take us back 4 billion years to see exactly how it happened so all they can do is research it like crazy and try to come up with the best theories and answers that exist in the real world instead of an old book of fairy tales. That's a bad thing?

It's literally one of the most noble things a human can do and you're just going to dismiss it because you don't like reading? Grow the fuck up and read a damn book on evolution, stop asking the same questions moronic preachers and pastors have been asking for decades and JUST PUT THE FUCKING BIBLE DOWN AND PICK UP AN ACTUAL SCIENCE BOOK.

Ok you think some God created us because "something" must have, OK prove it. That's it, prove your God exists. Also anything could have created us when you have no proof, a God , a wizard, a fairy, an alien race, etc.

Until you can do that we will keep researching our origins to the best of our ability and you can research the utterly silent void your God exists in, praying and waiting for an answer. Seriously go ahead and try to understand the mind blowingly absent God that may have created us and let us know what you find, we'll be waiting.
