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.

Sartre was so close; he almost nailed it.
The truth is that all men and women have the POTENTIAL to be prophets.
Most people are just lazy. They lack the curiosity and will to make the effort to "climb the mountain", i.e. evolve to higher states of consciousness. As Jesus said, "Many are called, few are chosen."
Sartre was smarter than all of us, eventually he would not be drawn on the subject of god, he considered it beneath him, like talking at length about used q-tips.

Speak for yourself.

Sartre shifted in "The Transcendence of the Ego: An Existentialist Theory of Consciousness" to a take on human identity mostly consistent with Jesus, the Galilean carpenter.

He departs from Descartes' "I think, therefore I am" to Jesus' "I am." (John 8:58)

The "thought" is form, the existence "is".

So funny when you Christians deny your faith but then later defend it. Old man Dave humiliates himself in the same way.

How goes the diet?

...and existence EXISTS independently of THOUGHT. We do not sit around all day and consider the supply of oxygen on our planet and yet that oxygen is there, because we do not die.

Reality is not dependent upon thought and thoughts of god do not inject a god into reality, as a concept yes, as a reality, no.

Not talking about god would simply remove him/her/it as a concept, we do not know about god/gods unless we are told about them, god is an invention. Yet we breathe involuntarily without knowledge of oxygen.

When god is not talked or thought about, he simply goes to sit in the corner of the box and pets Schroedinger`s cat until he is needed.

Yet the oxygen works in us, and in all life.

God is not the invention. The invention is the description, when formed, is encapsulated as concept or form, and limited.

So god is limited by the description he is given? It`s our fault god is feeble because we don`t `big him up` enough?

He is mighty indeed alleluia. LMFAO

So many followers of Zeus these days...

It is unseemly to ridicule before you grasp.

It is not god that is limited by concept; it is our awareness that is limited.

Awareness is the "living water springing up" that was offered by the Galilean carpenter to the woman at the well. It was offered on the spot - no confession, no forgiveness, no blood sacrifice.

"If you knew the gift of God and who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked him and he would have given you living water."

How it got past the editors, I do not know.

So what you`re saying is we need to scan for the post powerful entity in the universe in the minutia?

...followed by having a drink of water....

Blood sacrifice, lets deal with that shall we?

If I was told that hunger, war, pestilence, plague, famine and general nastiness all over the world would cease, if I gave my life, you know I think I`d probably do it.

My daughter would never want, she`d never get sick, she`d live a healthy and happy life as would the rest of humanity.

I was a soldier, I`d have died for less and if I was given the choice I would die in a second, torture me for three days if you like, I`d probably laugh while you were doing it because I knew the outcome.

I`ll put it out there...I wish that would happen, sincerely I want it to happen today. If I`m not on topix tonight you know why.

Now lets look at the notion that after I die I WILL BE RESURRECTED.

IT IS A GUARANTEE THAT I WILL LIVE AGAIN AFTER THREE DAYS. I will then go to heaven and my memory will live on for thousands of years as people everywhere worship said memory.

DOOOD PLEASE!!!!! Where was the sacrifice?

Where? Nowhere.

I plainly said "no sacrifice".

I'm saying Jesus did not die for our sins.

I'm saying Jesus was not unique or different than the rest of us, except for wisdom and awareness, in many cases.

I do not advocate "worship" of Jesus or anything.

I have no idea what prompted your questions.

Theists who believe in a divinely created Earth, and in the literal truth of the alleged 'holy book' aka the Bible containing 'hearsay' stories, written by primitive men, must reinterpret all new things discovered in light of the same source material.

The atheist will read this and then make a judgment if it warrants merit or outright rejection. They will not seek an apologist - they will use their Theists who believe in a divinely created Earth, and in the literal truth of the alleged 'holy book' aka the Bible containing 'hearsay' stories, written by primitive men, must reinterpret all new things discovered in light of the same source material.

In short they will question anything and everything.

The literal theist, on the other hand, is forced to say ...

The perils of letting Siri do things for me.

Sorry for the poor attempt at over copy paste!
One more time in the right order!

Still gushing about Jesus of Nazareth, a city that didn't exist at the time of his so called life?

Lol!

It had a different name.

But it existed.
