Jide oni is a real piece of work. This POS wants us to join a religion based on hate and violence and wounders why we reject it.

It only goes to show that we atheists have a higher moral standard.

Richardfs,
Unpretended ego - Yes. Corked ego could be self-destructive.
Most of the time, my gadget fails to work with the reply button.
This handicap will soon be over, especially by the time the main debate hots up.

No indocrination of any coloration. I operate neither on belief nor on disbelief, I operate on knowledge.

The long-awaited Universal Religion is now here. The advent of the Universal Religion will definitely clear off all forms of idolatrous practices from our world, and prove to be the best option for Atheists, Agnostics, Pagans and all believers at large.
It naturally follows therefore, that all existing scriptures stand to be displaced and replaced by the superior Universal Religion scriptures.
This inchoate Universal Religion will eventually remain the only religion throughout the whole world and through all future civilizations.
The religion will be a religion of no religion, in the sense that it will prove to be simply a natural way of life, i.e. all shades of primitive idolatrous worships of a personal, humanlike deity will become a thing of the past.
Learn more from Jideoni-Charles, to be able to make the believers' so-called heaven here on earth.
Non-believers don't worship, hence no need for any religion.

Haven't we heard this crap so many times,--> "The religion will be a religion of no religion"? Is not collecting baseball cards a hobby?

MrDesoto,
In the Universal Religion, no worship of any deity, no prayer to any god, no servitude to any heavenly father, but service to humanity.

Nightserf,

Now, you are talking.

Human language is productive and displaceable,

As man's conception of God improves, the world,'religion', must change in its doctrines, precepts and practice.

Honest, selfless service can only be joyfully undertken with a full conviction that one's efforts will not come to waste.

"Human language is productive and displaceable"? What does that even mean? I assume that you mean "the word,'religion.'" Words may imply doctrines, precepts, and practice, but the do not have them. People do. The above is utterly without meaning.

Quite the opposite. With true selflessness, efforts of service are sufficient unto themselves. It is the ego that demands that " one's efforts will not come to waste." Selflessness denies the need for reward of any kind.

Gee, that must be why neither Harris or Dawkins refuse donations.

Hypocrite.

Utterly without meaning in the context of the discourse that preceded it. Neither Harris, Dawkins, nor I claim utter selflessness. The issue was not who practices selflessness but of its nature. Your need to cast aspersions on those with whom you disagree is clouding your vision and separating you from whatever sense of logic you may possess.

Mikko,
I'll prove God again:
There are imperfect man-made laws - violable i.e. they can be disobeyed, have exceptions i.e. they don't apply to everybody,and are not permanent i.e. they can be changed or cancelled.
There are perfect natural laws - inviolable i.e. they cannot be disobeyed, permanent i.e. cannot be changed or cancelled, and have no exceptions i.e. they apply to everybody and everything equally.
We know that the imperfect man-made laws are the necessary products of man's imperfect intelligence. and if so, the perfect natural laws must be the necessary products of a perfect intelligence.
In the latter case, there are three things involved: the PERFECT INTELLIGENCE that functions through the PERFECT NATURAL LAWS to control EVERYTHING.
The perfect intelligence which is the necessary source of the laws that control everything, we consider as the eternal energy that manifests itself through the laws in everything,
This energy, the laws and everything trinitarianly put together, constitute GOD.
