Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: News24

Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking.

Atheism is both a belief system and a religion as defined by dictionaries and the US courts.
Really?

Religion requires faith.

Faith is belief without evidence.

Religion is a belief in the supernatural, i.e. MAGIC.

Religion requires veneration of an object or a deity.

Religion requires ritual.

These are the components required for something to be classed as a religion for legal purposes.

They can not be applied to atheism, atheism is not a religion for the purposes of law or even philosophy. There is no unified doctrine of unbelief.

...and jesus according to your bible was totally A JEW, and if he existed was probably Zadokite.

When a profoundly stupid person posts something ignorant, they'll stubbornly keep defending their post ad nauseum no matter how deep a hole they dig themselves into.
I've met and still laugh at one of the latter.
She posted her name at some point in time, all the while denying she ever posted her name.
She swears that another spelling for "Sioux Indians" is "Sue Indians."
She claimed, and continues to stand her ground on the claim, that straight couples have "front to front sex" and gay couples and animals have "back to back sex."

There's so much more, and it's hilarious.

I'll even make a special section of my comments devoted to errors, for your entertainment, from now on.

01. But not by atheists themselves. We are the only ones who can define atheism with any authority.

02.Dictionaries are compiled almost exclusively by believers, nor are there any atheists on the courts that make these pronouncements. If I want to know about Judaism, I ask a Rabbbi. Not a priest and certainly not a skinhead.

03.Believers who speak or write about atheism are clueless about it at best, biased against it at worst. You will learn more about atheism by reading our posts on this forum than from almost any other source you can find.
Ans.

I have asked many times on this and other thread to define what is Athiesm and who is an Atheist?

I got no definition of atheism or defining criterion of an Atheist.

Most of them said that "Only" thing on which all atheist agree is that "There is no God and there is no religion"?

How can you make "negatives" as your definition?

Please tell me what is the definition of an Atheist and who is an Athiest. But please, it should be a "positive" definition and not a negative definition.

The problem is that you are too stupid to understand dictionary definitions....
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/atheist
That's it. That is all that it means. Nothing more. Atheism IS entirely negative and says nothing positive about a person whatsoever. What could be clearer or simpler?

You cannot understand because you think people need religion to be positive. I am not trying to insult you. I honestly believe you're too stupid to understand anything most people say. Religious dogma learned from childhood seems to do that to some people. "Give me a boy under 7 and I'll give you a (Roman) Catholic for life", the Jesuits notoriously said.

Jeez MUQ, give us a break. How about ...'an Atheist is a person who is POSITIVE there is no deity'.

Well said, I'm an agnostic atheist, but I put on an act of believing without a doubt that there is no god for those who are bigots.
Because, you know, if there ever was a god, it probably wouldn't be as big of an a**hole.

Atheism is what it is Muq. I'm sorry of the reality of it upsets you but an Atheist is just a person who does not believe in any god. We reject the theist claim as they are unable to show observable proof for the theist claim.

For civilized people who bathe properly and do not sell their children, it's really not that difficult to understand.

But you being a janitor at an airport I suppose it is difficult for you.
