Any definition that conflates Atheism with Agnosticism is not Atheism by any sense.

My opponent wrongfully claims to be an atheist-agnostic, which is confused. A presumption which seems to combine atheism with agnosticism re-defines "Atheism" to indicate merely the absence of belief in God.

Regarding God's existence, it would be necessary on the atheist, to prove that if God existed, then He would prov...

P2: Given (1), Anything which begins to exist was not caused to do so by something which exists. P3: The unive...

Mecap thinks ERVs are "evidence for evolution" But this is just an old evolutionist argument that has been proven false by Daniel Nahum. He raises many objections: One problem is that retroviral DNA does not show an apparent link between mammals and other classes of animals, and in fact the difference between retro genes in vertebrates and invertebrates is very significant, and the supposed retro genes in invertebrates are not even considered ERVs by some scientists. This is a very importan...

Resolved: Endogenous Retroviruses (ERVs) confirm common ancestry (evidence for evolution)

Resolution: Endogenous Retroviruses (ERVs) confirm common ancestry (which is evidence for evolution). Definition: "Endogenous retroviruses (ERVs) are retroviruses derived from ancient infections of germ cells in humans, mammals and other vertebrates; as such their proviruses are passed on to the next generation and now remain in the genome. Retroviruses are viruses that reverse-transcribe their RNA into DNA for integration into the host's genome."(1) Proposition 1. Humans and Chimpanzees s...
