    Why do most atheists defend Neo-darwinism when Neo-darwinism can't give a logical explanation supported by evidence as to the origins of life ?

    Why do they reject the possibility of creation ?

    I don't think most of us do (reject the possibility of creation). It's just that we don't find biblical creation myths particularly useful for a scientific understanding of how life works. They might very well reflect some deep truth about the origins of man, but science is looking for different kinds of understanding. The two aren't necessarily in conflict, and I suspect you'll find a good many Christians involved in this kind of research who would agree.

    It all boils down to believable vs. unbelievable.

    Present your proof of creationism.

    A magic man created us out of clay?

    1st no one was around in the beginning of evolution to document the sop called evidence your asking for. On part there is no proof for any single religion or belief either. Atheist's have their own reasons for not believing but defend others because we feel they are correct. There is no god and as science grows the ground for gods to hide on will diminish.

    What literature have you read on evolution?

    It is a very credible explanation to life and how we have come to be.

    I'll take Darwin and thousands of scientists over a talking snake.

    And it boils down to minding your own business and not worrying about what others do or don’t believe.

    It's very hard to "mind one's own business" when religious types want to dilute science with myth and magic. They have places to worship..and should do their worshipping there.
