Why do atheists accept evolution and astrology/horoscopes without any evidence but reject God despite all of the Biblical evidence?

    Not all atheists believe in astrology but they are statistically more likely to do so than Christians.

    There is no evidence of a god in the bible. The bible is just a book of faith, not a book of fact.

    The find it easier to believe some on can read dirt, rocks and water then to believe in a talking snake or donkey.

    Take the statement "Carbon 14 dating says …."! Now I don't know what Carbon 14 they are dating- but I honestly don't think Carbon 14 can speak an intelligible word or even afford a meaningful date.

    What gives you the factless delusion that any of us accept astrology ?

    That's as utter factless cr*p as religion is.It is time for students of the evolutionary process, especially those who have been misquoted and used by the creationists, to state clearly that evolution is a fact, not theory, and that what is at issue within biology are questions of details of the process and the relative importance of different mechanisms of evolution. It is a fact that the earth with liquid water, is more than 3.6 billion years old. It is a fact that cellular life has been around for at least half of that period and that organized multicellular life is at least 800 million years old. It is a fact that major life forms now on earth were not at all represented in the past. There were no birds or mammals 250 million years ago. It is a fact that major life forms of the past are no longer living. There used to be dinosaurs and Pithecanthropus, and there are none now. It is a fact that all living forms come from previous living forms. Therefore, all present forms of life arose from ancestral forms that were different. Birds arose from nonbirds and humans from nonhumans. No person who pretends to any understanding of the natural world can deny these facts any more than she or he can deny that the earth is round, rotates on its axis, and revolves around the sun.The controversies about evolution lie in the realm of the relative importance of various forces in molding evolution.- R. C. Lewontin "Evolution/Creation Debate: A Time for Truth" Bioscience 31, 559 (1981) reprinted in Evolution versus Creationism, op cit.

    Actually it is because they don't understand God that they refuse to believe in Him.

    The evidence for evolution is overwhelming, you would have to be willfully ignorant to ignore it.  No atheist believes in horoscopes, please don't make sh it up.

    You are finally correct partially. Nearly well done. I will go out on a limb and say that all atheists accept that the theory of evolution is currently our best explanation for the diversity of life on this planet. Astrology and or horoscopes serve as amusement but little else. No thinking person actually thinks that astrology or horoscopes actually tell us anything useful. Wanna know why? For the same reason we dont believe you when you posit your god is existent. No proof to make think its likely, much less possible.

    Astrology/horoscopes are not actual science. Evolution is. Let's be clear there, Karen. 

    What evidence? Which is...? You didn't list any or post a link or...yeah.
