Atheism to Defeat Religion by 2038

Apr 25, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Psychology Today

My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

Again, spoken like a true atheist.

I hope your fellow atheists realise that your behaviour is probably the most reflective of the central doctrine of the atheistic religion?

Assertion of self...

Indeed...

That is where atheism takes the individual.

Irrational numbers exist.
There was a believer that posted on Topix that root 2 was a fraction.
He wasn't even a Poe.

If morality is a function of biology and one persons biology urges them to rape, your argument grants them that right...
Do you realise that?
No, morality is about living in a society and the happiness of those in the society. Rape does not contribute to the happiness of those in the society. Empathy is a fundamental aspect of human biology. Morality is based on empathy.

Ah...
You see, this is where you misunderstand how a persons epistemology is constructed...
Let me show you how this works.
You are an atheist.
You believe that life came from non-life.
That rocks evolved into living creatures.
Did you observe that?
No.
You have no empirical data to confirm that.
So upon what basis would you defend that presupposition?
Everyones ultimate standard has to be assumed at some point, everyone has many presuppositions that they assume.
Then from there an examination of that standard should take place.
This is of course absolutely true, unless you were there when the rocks decided to turn into life?
Then of course you would have empirical data to match your witnessing the event of abiogenesis.
Short of that, you assumed, or presupposed that happened and then argued from there...
Since you clearly don't understand even the basics of what science says, let alone how science and atheism differ, I would recommend not commenting on things you do not understand.

Obviously I do not accept your twisted interpretation of the Bible on this matter.
But to the main point:
You think that rape is wrong.
That is because you are appealing to a greater absolute moral standard than you can account for in your atheism.
No, we appeal to the empathy that is central to social species like ours. The progress of morality is the progress of empathy towards those who religion and other doctrines say are subhuman.

Why shouldn't there be a God is my question? What's there to look forward to after you die? Why would you fight so hard to to prove that a person does not exist, when that same person is willing to offer you salvation? Doest make sense..

Because the price you extract is too high. Your religion is one of hate, oppression and abuse.

It does not matter which of the supernatural woo you are victimized by currently-- they all abuse their followers.

Finally? I must ask... "salvation"... from ... what? Death is death--there is nothing beyond it as far as you (or anyone) can prove.

That's it. Finis.

So, no-- your mewlings here make no sense in the least.

You should be more concerned with living a full life so you don't care if there is a second one. Buying snake oil is a sign of gullibility, not one of intelligence, and you bought the snake oil.

Kindly cite a source for this logical fallacy I suspect you just made up.

A faulty emotional appeal is usually employing an emotion of pity or fear. How do you think his statement qualifies for either?

It would depend upon whether that 'salvation' is real or imagined.
Since there is absolutely zero proof that it is real and this proof has remained at zero from the beginning of time....well, the default position is that it is imaginary.

I don't want imaginary 'salvation.'

Why look forward to anything after you die? Why don't you make the most of your life?

Can you show where The bible says incest is forbidden? No this happens often in the bible.

How about slavery being forbidden? No in fact Pail demanded a run away slave return to his Christian slave master.

How about sex with children? No in fact children are often raped as spoils of war and slaves in the bible.

How about discriminating against women? No and lol at even trying!

Yet secular morality today an for some time now has forbidden these heinous acts. Your retarded god's morality in that pitiful myth falls short.

For this to be logical first you must demonstrate there is a god. Second that it is a logical moral god. Third this desperation.

Since you can't possibly get past the first item you are the illogical poster.

I have been presenting logical arguments like the argument:
That the atheist in their desperation to deny God, ends up having to deny all the transcendent laws that govern the universe, in particular those relating to morality and logic.
So much so that they are reduced to logical absurdity, clearly showing their worldview has some major issues that precludes them even engaging in logical discussions...
