Atheism to Defeat Religion by 2038

Apr 25, 2012 Full story: Psychology Today 23,198

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.

<quoted text>There is some truth in all religions and I practice the truth. I am not ethnically Jewish but they come closer to my beliefs than any other established religion, I was raised Christian although my family was not religious. I do believe as Christians do, that the Messiah is God, I also believe in reincarnation as do Buddhists, Elijah, David, Gabriel, and Michael have all been reincarnated.

How do you explain near death experience, they're all alike. And what happens to the energy in your body when you die? Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change form. When we die, we lose weight and heat. Heat is a form of energy.

If someone kills himself over a possibly a nonexistent dream then that seems to be his fault. It's a shame how much stupid people can get to the point they would die for anything
People die for a whole host of reasons.

In war, most people die for their war-buddies in the same squad or platoon-- rarely because they feel political.

In families, you will frequently see siblings die for each other or for their parents, and vice-versa. Family ties can be very strong motivators.

Sadly, in religion, you all too often see victims dying for the leaders, who sit amidst luxury-- robbing the poor, sending the foolish to their needless deaths--so that the leadership can gather even more luxury.

This is not limited to the middle east, either... you can see exactly this, here in the USA, under the guise of Genuine Christianity™

How often do old people, on limited income, send dollars they can ill afford to spare, to rich con-men like Pat Robertson?

Too often.

If you are looking at the bad things and the bad things only then that's your fault. I fortunately know which teaching to honor and reject. There will be always be a bad side to anything in this society I always try to look at the good side of things.
The bad in the BuyBull is so overwhelmingly bad, that any slight and purely accidental good that comes from it?

Is just not worth the cost.

The bad outweighs it, you see-- there are BETTER ways to get people to behave.

Without all the negative costs...

Like being a cafeteria Christian. Sadly this doesn't work because the religious will inevitably always go to those bad scriptures as an excuse to do great injustice upon others.
It's unavoidable.
<quoted text>
Exactly-- that is the problem.

People are too frequently stupid, and take the bad to heart-- far more than they take what little good is in there.

So news coming out on the Boston terror bombers and here's a big surprise! They are indeed Islamic terrorists from Chechnya killing in the name of Allah!
All this terrorism all this killing of innocents in the name of God. One of these two brothers is already dead he blew himself up it seems and the other is on the run like the sniveling worm he is. What do you think Muq? Will he commit suicide or face his charges like a man?
Is anyone really surprised?

Islam: the religion of suicide bombers, exporting it's violence and death all over the world.

Um, they are not "all alike" at all. You just ignore the ones that are of different religions or those that don't see anything. We understand NDEs completely, they're called "hallucinations," brought on by lack of oxygen to the brain. They've reproduced them in the centrifuge all the time.

It depends on whether or not you lose your spirit (breath). You can be brain dead but still breathing. And I believe they are alike and common to all humans regardless of religion.

That's why we need God and why God came 29 years ago to end the cold war. There's a saying in the NT which probably comes from the old, "Except those days be shortened, there should no flesh be saved alive" If the Messiah wasn't here we'd all be dead.
