I would like to have a basic conversation about atheism. I don't know much about it, I don't know any atheist who are willing to discuss it and my Christian friends are no help at all.
I understand that atheists believe that there is no creator and there was no creation. So everything we know about came to exist in some other manner. My first question is: What is the basic explanation for how everything came to be?
Or if a specific example is helpful, then I'll throw this out.
If there was no creation, then the first chicken did not come out of an egg. And I have two questions about that:
1. How did the first chickens come to be?
2. Why, and how, did chickens start laying eggs?
There is probably a better example, but I have to start somewhere.
