Atheism to Defeat Religion by 2038

Apr 25, 2012 Full story: Psychology Today 22,212

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.

Sad how religion leads people to actions like this. Burma fears an Islamic take over and sadly it leads to tragic actions like this.

So much for Buddhists being peaceful.

Buddhist attacks on Muslims burying scores of unidentified bodies in mass graves.

Religious violence is seemingly common, even in supposedly peaceful religions like Buddhism.

Perhaps it's simplistic to blame religion per-se, or entirely. It is tribalism that is part of the problem. Religion and religious teaching do compound the seperate identities and the problems.

..However[,] I have no doubt that Buddhist religious belief, as it was practised at the school, did a great deal of harm. Nowhere was this more in evidence than in the ramifications of the belief in karma. At first glance, karma is a lovely idea which encourages people to be good even when nobody is watching for the sake of happiness in a future life. It's a bit carrot-and-stickish, but so are a lot of the ways in which we get people to not routinely beat us up and take our stuff. Where it gets insidious is in the pall that it casts over our failures in this life. I remember one student who was having problems memorising material for tests. Distraught, she went to the monks who explained to her that she was having such trouble now because, in a past life, she was a murderous dictator who burned books, and so now, in this life, she is doomed to forever be learning challenged.

01. Every extra-martial relationship does not require killing the parties. This applies only if one or both commit adultery and they produce "four eye witness" for the crime.
This is not what "I" like, this is the punishment from their Creator, who is more merciful than the "most merciful and humanitarian" amongst you.
If you don't like it - change it. You don't have to remain a barbarian.

By the way, here in the UK we abolished the death penalty. That makes us much more merciful than your imaginary creator.
MUQ wrote:
02. Homosexuality is an abomination and sexual perversion of highest order. If the crime is proven and "four eye witness" testify to the act, the punishment is same as that of adultery.
Crime? You are sick. You would see people killed for loving each other?

It's all about freedom - something that's alien to you.

Tough titties.
MUQ wrote:
03. As said earlier, "men-women equality" is a myth and there is "no society on earth" where there is equality between sexes.
Men and women are complimentary to each other and they have rights and duties which are according to their nature.
No women is to be killed for "demanding" extra rights than she has been given by Her Creator.
PS:
So it is you people, who should crawl into caves and do not propagate sexual immorality in the world.

Yet all we hear from people like Muq is how gays must be killed because homosexuality is evil.

Seems to me that religion causes far more problems in society than homosexuality does.

The funny thing is that in some respects he seems a decent guy. He would probably be mortified at any suggestion he might break a law, or do anything immoral. He's quite open about his whereabouts and the formative influence of him by his father. What he says exemplifies why some people can see religion as a sort of cancer or illness. Religion is so obviously and frequently parent-given, it's not god-given. I see him as ignorant, not intentionally irresponsible. I don't think the ignorance is willful. I think he's genuinely as daft as he sounds.
(Thanks to Nightserf for video by Matt Dillahunty of the Atheist Experience)
True, and he's no crazier than some of his Christian counterparts who live all around me. But there are not many steps between approving of or at least tolerating the extremes that some will go to over religion and committing such acts oneself. It makes me warier of my neighbors than I would like to be.

Once I've covered a given topic and provided the necessary links I store all this as notes or a word document that I can be easily copy and paste

Advisor to whom? If I were to replace her, I should know who I would be advising, wouldn't you think? And if my views are exactly like hers, why would my input be needed. Would you like us to be twice as loud and twice as infuriated, by your insane dogma? To share exactly, ones views would not be likened to "almost a carbon copy", but rather as a clone. How many doctors of psychiatry do you think would sanction the anal ripping of a newborn child, by his own father's penis? These are crimes far worse than just sexual battery, and rape, these type actions are a betrayal of the family unit, it is an assault on humanity itself, it is monstrous.

Yesterday at my house, a goose hatched two eggs. She and the male are guarding those babies, the male goose is as diligent as she is, in protecting their young. You freak could learn from geese. The young are not meant to be violated. A parent is meant by nature to protect the offspring. It takes a being a criminal and a pedophile to actually touch a child with your penis.

Hey atheists,you know that inner thought inside of you that tells you something you are about to do is wrong and you shouldnt do it.That is your GOD conscious that almighty God put in you. its called a spirit. God puts this spirit in everybody. every time you go against your GOD conscious you drift farther and farther away from GOD. finally you will one day call yourself an atheist because you lost your spirit and have no conscious.

01. Praying five times a day is a colossal waste of human time and energy in a completely pointless task. If God is all powerful and all good, he will do the right thing irrespective of what prayers are offered to it.

02. An all powerful being would not need prayer. Prayer makes no sense. And besides, dont you ever think the being you are praying to could be imaginary?

03. What are the chances that you have the right god and right religion, out of all the various conflicting ones on offer.

04. The fact is our beliefs are largely formed by our upbringing and community that we live in, and have little to do with any particular sky entities.

05. And yes Allah was believed to live in the sky, as proven by the night flight. And has only be relocated to an alternate dimension since science has disproved sky beings living above our heads.
Ans.

01. Some people say watching TV every day and reading daily News papers as "More colossal waste of human time and energy".

It depends on the perspective, so you spend your time in drinks and dance parties and music shows and football games….and leave us to pray five times or more….why should it harm you?

02. Who told you that OUR prayers benefit Allah? They are for OUR benefit and not His. We thank Him for all the Blessings and good things in life, which He has given us and ask for His pardon and mercy

03. You do not toss a coin to chose which version you are going to follow? Do you? So there is no "chance" for any error.

We do not believe in chance, we are SURE that what we believe in is truth. As for different religions having different concepts, we can check and analyze and it would be clear that our's is the most logical and reasonable concept than every one else's.

04. This is true to some level. But not for every one. If every one was following religions of his parents, how come we see Billions of Christians and Muslims in the world today.

At some instant, some one changes his / her religion and selects another one.

So we tell you about our religion, to whom it appeals, they accept it and to whom it does not appeal, they continue their way.

We are not responsible for "how many" accepted our message.

06. And what do you know, what the word 'sky" means in Arabic? It means any thing "above" earth.

And seeing that earth is spherical in shape, every direction in upward and every where there is sky.

Alternate Dimension idea is very good, but how come science "prove" that there is no "other dimension"? On Mathematical level it is possible, but no one can "experiment" with it.

Ans.

01. Since you ALWAYS suggest solutions which are against morality, so you would support each other.

It does not matter how you two work and why should I waste my time in "advising you"?

And which religion or society permits that children be violated or harmed? Why are you creating all this hysteria?

02. Yes the instinct to protect their young is present in every life form. Humans have the most developed sense than other life forms.

I agree that you praying does no harm to me personally. It is more a friendly word to say that speaking to an imaginary friend, does not make any sense. Whilst meditating may give you a sense of comfort, religions can also be psychological damaging. You have to believe in a lot of superstition and nonsense. Many people with religion live in fear that they and their loved ones will end up in hell. Needless to say, this is purely and imaginary fear, with no basis in reality.
