I would assume that an Atheist could be as stupid as a Theist. I would imagine that even an Atheist could be dumb enough to doubt Evolution. It's a little harder for the Atheist but that simply makes it a bigger challenge. The Theist has a slight advantage cause they could use Goddit but the Atheist could also believe that things just happened without evolution or Goddit.

The bottom line is anybody who is not in someway mentally handicapped or wilfully ignorant must accept evolution based on the overwhelming preponderance of evidence.

Re: Poisoning the well...
Thanks for supporting my point. In spades.

Please point out where I mentioned the Theory of Evolution in the part that you quoted or in the message itself.

Of course the TOE will change as we learn more. But you really need to be wilfully ignorant to not accept the fact that Evolution happened and is happening.

The point of my post is that it is as possible for an Atheist to be as wilfully ignorant as the Theist.
