the definition of atheism,
Definition of atheism
disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods.
late 16th century: from French athéisme, from Greek atheos, from a- 'without' + theos 'god'
Also you are arguing against abiogenesis NOT evolution, they are two different things. If you are going to critique something you must first understand the definitions at least

The other hypothesis you refer to are supported by a small segment of the scientific community and again evolution is as scientific as climate change (which has been disproved) . I dont blame you for your conviction to evolution and or any other related theories as they have been marketed to people outside the scientific community unrelentingly knowing they wont be able to argue either for or against.
Albiogenesis and Evolution Theory still interlink and support each other Gofre, evolution is purely dogmatic and unscientific.I dont appreciate your ad hominem aswell , instead a correction would suffice.
Chemist and five time Nobel nominee, Henry "Fritz" Schaefer of the University of Georgia, commented on the need to encourage debate on Darwin's theory of evolution. "Some defenders of Darwinism," says Schaefer, "embrace standards of evidence for evolution that as scientists they would never accept in other circumstances." Schaefer was on the roster of signers of the statement, termed "A Scientific Dissent on Darwinism."
Meanwhile, a Zogby Poll released today shows overwhelming public support--81 percent--for the position that "When public broadcasting networks discuss Darwin's theory of evolution, they should present the scientific evidence for it, but also the scientific evidence against it." Only 10 percent support presenting "only the scientific evidence that supports" Darwin's theory. (Less than 10 percent said "Neither" or "Not sure.")
In response to your ingrorant claim that evolution stands without repudiation i have included a link to 100 scientists, some Nobel prize winners who argue against or are highly skeptical, unlike some biologists*. Along with the pdf file i have attached a paper on the scientific case against evolition**. Wish you all the best.

Oh dear, climate change denial too?
If you really want to play a numbers game, the Dissent From Darwin list was dwarfed by Project Steve. This sort of argument from authority fails when the list of scientists you have can be beaten by a list compiled of scientists with only two Christian names between them.
I do not have a conviction in evolution because i'm an outsider buying into marketing, I accept the validity of evolution because I'm a biology student that (at least I would like to think) is able to actually assess the information presented for himself. Please don't insult my intelligence by saying it's not my fault I've been duped by evil scientists, and on the subjects of insults I didn't use anything close to an ad hom. If you're referring to the term "argument from ignorance", that's the name of the logical fallacy you committed.
I am more than aware of every mainstream creationist argument peddled by he likes of ICR and the discovery institute, the latter of which is a particularly nasty organisation. They all fail.
Needless to say this is getting off topic, if you wish to hold a discussion on evolution feel free to VM/PM me, or make a post in the Evo sticky with your key arguments and quote me at the end so I get notified.

I'm interested to know for what reason you think the holocaust happened?

Whatever you believe guides you through life. Personally, I believe that God gave us this natural instinct and helps us through tough situations, pushes us forward, and reminds us that everything happens for a reason.
