If evolution is true, why are there atheists?

Theists are more likely to carry on their genes to the future generation than atheists are. Generally because believers have hope, and are more likely to persevere in difficult times. Atheists, or the other hand, would just succumb, and suicide when the going gets tough. Hence, become extinct. The world needs more theists, according to evolution, since it's about survival of the fittest.

    Both theists and atheists have had equal time on earth and so time has been the test. Less than 10% of the population are atheists. This leads us to a scientific conclusion: either a force greater than both theists and atheists has caused the superior numbers of theists. Or, for reasons not known, the atheist is simply less fit to survive.

    Evolution addresses ONLY the bio diversity of life on this planet.  It says absolutely NOTHING about anything else.  I know that religious believing fundie trolls like to try and clump evolution in with other totally not related things like cosmology, the beginning of life, geology and so forth.  Go and read an actual basic science book, get some real knowledge, and then come back and try to ask the same question with an little bit more intelligence.

    Many atheists have theist children who rebel against the nothingness of life.

    You've been fed a pile of lies about atheism and about evolution. Why can't Christians ever tell the truth? Are they terrified of reality, or are they just nasty people who get pleasure from spreading lies about others?

    Because religious convictions are not passed through genes. But you're right, Atheists are indeed at disadvantage.

      This is because evolution in intelligence is not advancing as fast as other human characteristics...

    Your premise is false, so your conclusion is false.

    There is no if, moron. Evolution's been proven thousands of times in a score of ways. Creation hasn't been proven once in any way.
