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.

The there's Zit sitting with anyone:
Zit: I never take a stance on pedophilia, but take a stance on everything else, showing my approval. I also believe time doesn't exist and that atheists don't exist.
Everyone else: Wow, I can't believe someone can be so stupid.
That sounds about spot on there.

That's circular reasoning and it's a logical fallacy.
Again, duration is the period of existence between a CAUSE and EFFECT. Time, on the other hand, is the mental construct humans invented to MEASURE the duration, i.e. period of existence, between cause and effect.
Keep repeating yourself. Maybe some one other than you and your mommy will say your brilliant.

Tell us how 32 virgins in the after life are made possible by your notion of a mental construct, bubba.

America seems solid behind President Obama and VP Biden on questions of theology.

Quantum Mechanics, which was unknown when Whitehead was writing, has refuted causality quite well. Whitehead, although he did some good work with Russell, had a metaphysics that was simply silly.
Au contraire.

Concepts and theories about the universe at the quantum level were first introduced by Hindu scholars and documented in Vedic literature beginning in about 5,000 BC, many milleniums before Whitehead developed his Theory of Actual Occasion and wrote “Process and Reality”.

Causality requires that a potency be actualized by something already actual. For any event to occur it must first have the potential to occur, and then have that potential actualized. Quantum mechanics merely describes what takes place at the quantum level. It makes no reference to causes and has never refuted the principle of causality. To say that it has is just false.

BTW Quantum theory is just chock full of "silly" metaphysical assumptions and implications, like the theory about the "God particle" for example.......(heeheeheeheehee .....)

Not answered at all lol. How on earth do you feel like you have answered creation and life after death with "God did it" and "We will go to heaven or hell." ??????? There is no proof that "god" exists, and there is no proof that heaven or hell exists.

Yesss yessss I know... there is also no solid proof that the big bang started it all either. That would mean that neither party has the definite answer so stop claiming that you do.

However, science has a much more trustworthy opinion on the subject.

Show the link where atheists claim they are the most hateful people on earth. It's not us flying planes into buildings or killing billions of the centuries by hindering medical and scientific advancement... That would go to your ilk yes?

Yes :)

O.k... now I can officially say that I agree with everyone else who has called you ignorant. What I believe, or how I label myself has nothing to do with the fact that you can look up the definition of Atheism, or Atheist in the Merriam-Webster dictionary and find absolutely one definition... not many lol.
Secondly... Since you know exactly what I have posted then you should obviously remember me distinctly saying that I don't label myself, so how could I be a bad Atheist???
Are you labeling me? I'm feeling labeled. Guys/Gals.. He's labeling me!
It'll be o.k.(comforting tone) When you learn to read you'll finally understand all of the big definitions in that big ole Merriam-Webster.
Yeah. Dividing Humanity up into thousands of conflicting religious sects just ain't good enough for Zit. You'd think that would be enough hatred and bloodshed to satisfy even the most primitive godbot. He's got to subdivide the small, peaceful percentage who have managed to extricate themselves from the muck.

I believe we do have the dubious honor of being the most hated group in America ... perhaps the world.

" http://newsjunkiepost.com/2009/09/19/research... ;

Nobody has bothered to generate a list of 'the least hateful'... I suspect we would be near the top of that list as well. We're the biggest bunch of 'turn the other cheek, Gandhi wannabes' who've ever walked the Earth.

He reads fairy tales and assigns them cosmic significance so yes ... confusion is a distinct possibility.

lol... oh my bad...I'm sorry that you would like for the answers to the universe to be less complicated lol. I know that you've said it's just too much work to study. You probably went through that awesome christian homeschooling where the books have like 30 pages a piece so I can see why your enthusiasm for learning may be low.
