My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

Did you read what definition of a Muslim I posted?
I said every one who submits himself to Lord and Creator of Universe is a Muslim.
Jew is a racial definition and not a religious definition. All Jewish prophets were Muslims, because they submitted themselves to their Lord and Creator.
Our prophet was also a Muslim and his followers, if they follow in his footsteps, are also Muslims.
Why can't you understand simple things and try to confuse yourself and others?
So you're saying Israel is a muslim country?

Wow, you muslims really hate each other.

Sunnis and Shias both seem to hate Israel so which sect does israel fit into?

Atheism can only continue to rise if more uneducated youth are continually bombarded by the social media/mass media & education establishment in its brainwashing.
Only by dumbing down people into believing they are related to common beasts of the field (such as monkeys) or pushing them to lower their moral standards, such as convincing them its OK to be a pervert (2 men in a "relationship") can the ugly, intolerant head of atheism finally be raised in triumph.
Or of course-by legalizing drugs and having a whole generation sitting around openly high.

Strange how atheism is most common among the better educated, isn't it?

So you accept that Allah is not necessarily the Lord and Creator. It could be God, Vishnu or Jehovah?
Ans.

From where you got the Idea that Allah is not the sole creator of Universe?

God and YHWH are same as Allah. The Creator is known by different names in different languages.

Vishnu is certainly not the Creator of the Universe, not even by popular Hindu belief,

01. I understand that you lie, all peoples who revere an Unique God are not Muslims

02. Being a Muslim needs more than "sumitting to the creator, being a Muslim needs to submit the way your prophet says,

03. Unique creator God believers do not all revere your prophet nor take him and his stances as sacred, therefore many are not muslims
Ans.

01. I think, you are getting confused and not trying to understand. I said that a Muslim is one who "submits" himself to his Creator. This is much more than "revering" a Unique God!!

When you submit yourself to the Creator, you acknowledge and accept ALL his directives and decrees.

In that sense all the prophets and their true followers before the advent of our prophet were "Muslims". They believed in the True God and followed the revelation which their prophet brought.

And one of the teachings of ALL major past prophets was to instruct their followers to follow the last and final prophet whenever he came.

After our prophet came into the world, the word Muslim was reserved for those who followed him.

02. Yes being Muslim means to worship Allah AND follow the revelation sent to the Last and Final prophet.

03. Again you are confusing the word "Unique God Believers" and Muslims.

If any "Unique God believer" rejects teaching of any prophet of God, he is really an unbeliever and not a believer.

So if I accept Jehovah but reject Mohamed I can still be a Muslim? Interesting

Science has nothing to do with faith, only evidence..
“I always flinch in embarrassment for the believer who trots out,“Atheism [or science] is just another kind of faith,” because it’s a tacit admission that taking claims on faith is a silly thing to do. When you’ve succumbed to arguing that the opposition is just as misguided as you are, it’s time to take a step back and rethink your attitudes.”- Amanda Marcotte
LOL, You have to have faith to believe in anything that includes evidence ! Why do Atheists detest the word Faith ? Do they feel it threatening to their belief systems ? You cannot detach your evidence from the faith you must have in that evidence to believe that evidence to be true !
Atheists claim to base their beliefs entirely upon logic, but all they really do is to defy the use of their own logical reasoning !

Athiesm is no faith at all, it is a negative definition, nothing positive and you cannot make any thing with only negation.
There is nothing "positive" in Athiesm, that is why they are unable to create any civlization, any code of living or any thing.
They are actually parasites living off the people of faith.
I usually skip your posts because I am uninterested in Islam and haven't the patience for long posts with little content, but in this one you make good points except for the bit about atheists being parasites. It seems that most believers claim that nonbelief is a faith, and it's good to see one negating that claim for us. It's even true that there is noting positive (or negative) about nonbelief. It's an absolute neutral in terms of faith.

Nonbelievers tend to live peacefully in the civilizations of their environs. We don't tend to band or bond together enough to make more than occasional contributions to civilization as a whole, partly because our numbers have been small until this period of history, partly because we've almost always had to keep our heads down to avoid deadly persecution, but mostly because we're too busy pursuing the stuff of life--work, play, family, art... stuff like that. As for codes, the ones that really matter tend to be written into civil law along with a few gratuitous ones held over from periods of religious domination that is beginning to fade at last.

Nonbelievers tend to make positive contributions to the general economy, obey civil law, contribute to the advancement or arts and sciences, and to be positive influences in their communities. What is parasitic about that?

That is an illogical assumption. As if one assumption somehow justifies the other.

You are missing everything in between. I'm sure that statement sounds very clever in your head but means nothing when dissected.

The existence of God is not automatically proven because nothingness cannot exist.

God doesn't exist because he simply doesn't. Tell me, can God reproduce?

Absolutely not.
God was just a human invention and not a shed of evidence to prove god was real.
Which one would you believe in more?
a) something that can't be proved wrong.
b) something that can be proved with facts.
As iv said before IF the universe is infinite anything is possible.
