Is atheism predicated partially on the belief in evolution and the current prevailing views of science.

If so, then such a belief is subject to drastic changes as discoveries and theories

 have recently arose that shatter the paradigm that is the foundation of such a belief:

Discoveries keep pushing back the inception of civilization, indefinitely back in time

Evidence of coastal civilizations existing during the ice age are arising in now inundated coastal region due to rising seas.

The concept of a missing link is no longer postulated as a bush of hominids lineages walked  the earth. With what was once considered ancestors, actually being contemporary with postulated descendants. A bush of hominids actually existed as recently as 30,0000 B.C.E.

Though theories of evolution abound no working scientific model exists for the emergence of life.

Our very existence is interwoven with the anthropic principle. As such this has required scientist to postulate the multiverse to explain how the anthropic principle is mindlessly satisfied by nature. However this just substitutes one unfalsifiable believe for another.

In truth, Darwin's world has been shattered and the truth has become intractable. Even as we cope with dark matter and energy. Terms that falsely connote that we have defined them, when in fact they are no more apparent than God. As such new scientific theories continue to emerge based on the inadequacy of the standard model. This will continue into infinitum since, as God there is no means to detect these alleged entities with scientific instrumentation.

So much nonsense it hurts! lol

As such new scientific theories continue to emerge based on the inadequacy of the standard model.

Well, since they have probably discovered at last the Higgs boson particle, the standard model is doing just about as well as it ever has.

Actually, they must postulate a fifth force called the chameleon force to explain dark matter and energy.

... which in fact dark matter exists as noted by a link provided downthread. So what if the standard model doesn't deal with it? Christianity doesn't teach us how to toast bread but some people still find it incredibly persuasive.

Once again Dark matter is postulated to exist, but to date no experiment can prove it. I also give you the excerpt  down thread.

Dark matter does exist actually. And it's provable through a process called gravitational lensing. When you look at distant objects in space. Cosmologists find that the image is warped due to a gravitational force distorting the light about it. This gravitational force exists in mostly empty space. You can actually derive the weight/mass of galaxies and experiments show most of the mass in the empty space rather than where most "normal matter" lies. If you want to learn more in detail, google is your friend.

here is a excerpt from what i quoted down thread:

---snip

Although dark matter is the most popular theory to explain the various astronomical observations of galaxies and galaxy clusters, there has been no direct observational evidence of dark matter. Some alternative theories have been proposed to explain these observations without the need for a vast amount of undetected matter. They broadly fall into the categories of modified gravity laws and quantum gravity laws. The difference between modified gravity laws and quantum gravity laws is that modified gravity laws simply propose alternative behaviour of gravity at astrophysical and cosmological scales, without any regard to the quantum scale. Both posit that gravity behaves differently at different scales of the universe, making the laws established by Newton and Einstein insufficient.

Michael, you can rant and rave all you like, you certainly have before and likely will do so again, and you can copy/paste all you like from various scientific websites that make you sound like you know what you're talking about, but when you're completely finished, when there's not a rant nor rave left in your body, nothing you've said nor can say, will ever explain the Universe in terms of "GodDidIt!"

So except for the attention, why waste your time?

And that is what the Grand Unified Theory (ie, String Theory) is for. To unite both Einstein's and Newton's theory into a much larger grander (sic) theory. 

Actually you didn't give an excerpt or even a link. Instead, you think we're supposed to take your word for it. Not happening.

Read my reply to Mathew above.

Micheal, ... People theorized the Higgs Boson existed for 30 years prior to it's actual recent discovery. There was not an experiment which could prove it.. until recently. Even then it was a single experiment ran thousands of times with the results of each being tabulated and compared with each past run of that same experiment.
