    A thread especially for athiests on USMB. In this video, the big bang theory of origins and its plausibility are discussed.

    101 - The Earth In Time And Space - Amazing Discoveries TV

    Presented by a renowned scientist in scientific language. I've watched this video at least 3 times now. Powerful stuff.

    I don't think you understand what an atheist is.

    I also don't think you grasp the concept that disproving science, or failing to do so in your case, in no way proves religion.

    If you will...

    Take some time and watch the video, you'd have to block out at least 2 hours.

    We'll continue our discussion afterwards.

    Peace.

    And for the record, because I'm respecter of definitions and being on the same page, when I use "athiests" I mean those of us who do NOT believe in the existence of a God and those who mock those that do and those that attempt to debunk Christianity. I'm not saying that all are like those 3, however those are the characteristics of many of the atheists I'm aware of.

    Any of the above is who I'm referring to in this thread.

    Any one with a different definition, please describe it and present your case.

    I tried watching the video, but the guy was insulting my intelligence before he even got started. The guy is a zoologist, not an astrophysicist.

    were you expecting honest discussion from someone with an education actually in the field being discussed? this is religious misinformation we're talking about.

    What, exactly, insulted your intelligence.

    He's a world renowned scientist and professor. And your credentials are...?

    World renowned? What, other than his claim to be one, makes him world renowned?

    By the way, if you read his site you will see he is a zoologist. Why should I listen to a zoologist with delusions of grandeur?
