Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

There are 14730 comments on the News24 story from Aug 27, 2012, titled Why Atheism Will Replace Religion. In it, News24 reports that:

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.

In that case, you misapply logic, don't understand Occam;s razor and don't realize that Whitehead was wrong.
Really? Well now, compared to the other forces that act on particles, gravity is basically non existant. Electrostatic force is something like 10^40 times stronger than gravity which means that gravity has about as much affect on a particle as a fart on a windstorm.
Yes, E&M is much stronger than gravity. It is what keeps the electrons in their orbitals around atoms, etc. But gravity does have an effect: particles fall in a gravitational well. That is also an observed effect. In fact, the acceleration due to gravity on an electron is the same as for a macroscopic object. What we do NOT have is a quantum theory of gravity, where the gravitational force itself is quantized.
So you’re trying to understand quantum mechanics in terms of classical mechanics? LOL
No, exactly the opposite. Most of the paradoxes' of quantum mechanics come about because people assume that quantum particles act like classical particles.
Which is a verbose way of saying....we’re still working on it. That’s what I said.
No, we actually have the description. It is called quantum mechanics.
Wrong. Neutrino particles pass through solid objects as large as planets, bubba.
And 'solid' planets are mostly empty space. The cross section for interaction of a neutrino is much smaller than that for an electron.
Aaaah yes....that ol’ measurement problem described by Heisenberg et al. LOL
Well, Heisenberg was right about this, as has been verified repeatedly over the last 80 years.
if you get your science from journalists, you will have many misunderstandings. I would suggest you read actual science journals for such. Entangled particles do not communicate.
Counterintuitive things like particles don’t behave in ways classical mechanics predicts? That’s exactly what I said, bubba.
No, you called it mystical and magical. It is neither. We understand how these things work. it is often counter-intuitive, but quantum mechanics gives the description and allows us to make accurate predictions. In every situation, including the highly counter-intuitive ones, it has been verified.

Now, when was the last time you solved the Schrodinger equation for any situation?

Time is simply a mental construct, bubba. It's something humans invented to measure things and make predictions. It's not energy or matter and doesn't exist except in the minds of humans.
As you so eloquently said, bullshit.

Yet we see Muslims acting like subhuman animals killing, raping, torturing, gang raping little girls and then having the girl whipped in the street while her rapists walk free.

How could you be part of such a vile group and dare pass judgement on other?

None of these questions come under the purview of science and that was what I told you.

If you want to live like an "advanced animal", eat, drink, have sex and die and damn care that you are answerable for what good or bad deeds you did.....then you are one of those "Zealots" I spoke about.

We are wasting our time to have this "purposeless" discussion.

You go your way and I go my way.

I agree. Hard core Catholics can be very indoctrinated. I was reading an article by a Catholic priest, and he was clearly convinced that the CC had all the truth on everything. The level of arrogance can only be achieved by lifelong brainwashing.

Some measurable duration would seem a fundamental requirement to say something has or does exist. Something, like God, which has existed (supposedly)'forever' you would think would have a more commanding presence. Kind of like 'The Universe' but with bells on. You know, come down and shake a few hands, pat a few backs, hug a few babies. A sort of Celestial Politician coming down and winning votes.

It's simple, simply copy paste the following: "All sexual relations of people older than 18 with people younger than 16 are wrong."

All you have to do is copy and paste it.

You won't though, because either you condone that behaviour, or you like being called a pedophile for some reason.

That and you'd think a guy who knows everything past present and future would be better at managing his finances. It seems his messengers are always asking for money.

Never thought of it like that. Presumed they wanted to reduce the woman's desire to 'wander' and making a mess of bloodlines. Like royals making 'eunuchs' of their male servants.
I am sure there were lots of factors involved in the decisions to actually use these barbaric customs on female children. Hopefully, none even more hideous than the ones which I am already aware of.

Never heard the original skit ... got it second or third hand somehow. Doesn't really matter though, a great thought is a great thought whether it comes from a brilliant mind or an insignificant toad.

I speculated that you were either an illiterate moron, brain damaged, a liar, or all of the foregoing. After reading your response, I'm going with all three.
I have clearly stated--many times--that it would be great if the US "renditioned" all of America's thousands of sick atheist pedophiles to Saudi Arabia because the Saudis are a thousand times more efficient and effective than the US in the methods they use to deal with pedophiles, i.e. execution.
Why your little pea brain interprets my clearly stated opinion calling for the death penalty for all pedophiles as being "pro-Islam" or "pro-hetero pedophilia" can only be answered by a shrink or a brain surgeon, bubba.
The US only? Right, great idea, we can let those Saudi pedophiles, punish the American pedophiles? Well don't you just have the perfect solution? For the Saudi pedos, anyway.

Last chance to prove you don't condone pedophilia, nor participate in it.

Simply copy paste the following: "All sexual relations of people older than 18 with people younger than 16 are wrong."
All you have to do is copy and paste it.

(You won't though, yet again you will prove that you think pedophilia is morally acceptable)

The fundamental structure of the universe is composed of matter or energy. Which one is time?

Want to go all in and reveal some more mental/personality disorders to add to the pile, bubba?
