why do atheists want people to just dogmatically accept evolution, instead of thinking for themselves?

    Because the lie of "evilution" is part of the religion of Satan.

    because they can't think and therefor don't want anyone else to think

      Evolution is basic biology--proven by the fossil record through geologic time, showing increasing complexity and diversity of organisms--and by shared DNA among closely related species.

    A) Atheism is the rejection of claims made by theists that a god exists.

    B) The Theory of Evolution by Natural Selection is.the scientific model that explans the diversity of life on the planet.

    A does not equal B. They are two different subjects yet Theists, especially fundamentalist Christians don't appear bright enough to understand this concept. They keep equating the two.

      " if you accept B you cannot accept A." That makes no sense whatsoever. Acceptance of evolution does NOT negate atheists' lack of belief in gods.

    No no, you have confused atheism with the bible babble.

    You wouldn't know a "thought for yourself" if one came up and bit you on the leg.

  • Atheists don't want anything from religious folks, apart from a good laugh at the gullible idiots.

    Atheists have nothing to do with biological evolution. Do you accept the theory of gravity, or do you "think for yourself"? How about the revolution of the Earth? The need for protein in your diet? The best ways to avoid serious illnesses? The reflection of light and sound? Did you "figure out" these realities for yourself, or did you "dogmatically" accept the word of thousands of professional scientists who have performed hundreds of thousands of experiments that have clearly revealed the facts? Why would it be any different regarding the gradual change in living species over time? We know it happens. It is supported by literally millions of pieces of evidence, with no evidence to the contrary. If your interpretations of the Bible conflict with reality, it isn't reality that is at fault.

    Evolution is a working theory of biology. Biology is science. Science is nothing about theism or atheism. Instead of repeating the lies and twisted fantasies some very few theists got about science why they do not think for themselves is the real question you should ask

    Ah but you see that's is. We do want you to think for yourselves rather than cite verses from a book written by a bunch of old men long before science was a discipline.

    But you theists don't seem to know how to think for yourselves. Perhaps you need:

    "Whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable — if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things.

    -Philippians 4:8"

    As inspiration for independent thinking.
