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.

You just argued for willful ignorance in perpetuity as opposed to advancing as a species.

<quoted text>
According to the bible god made man in his own image and according to you his son was of 'middle eastern' race.
The bible makes no explanation of why people are different colours.
Evolution does give a perfectly good explanation for this.
That makes the bible fundamentally racist in comparison. If you aren't 'middle eastern' then you're less godly. You no longer look like god.
Are you 'middle eastern'?
Bible is not to be taken "literally".

Man was created in God' image, has to be taken allegorically, because he has some qualities that are a shadow of God' qualities.

Jesus was not Son of God in literal sense, but in the Jewish sense of being closer to God.

Why people have different colors and different tongues? Ask Quran!!

In Quran it is said, "It is one of His signs that humans have different colors and different languages, in it there are signs for those who have knowledge".

Bible , as it exists before us, is a human compilation and it was not expected as a book for all ages and for all people of the world.

Quran as Last and Final revelation from God to all humans holds that distinction. Quranic narration is free from these defects as it is Word of God, preserved and protected against any corruption.

Saying 'it is one of his signs' is not an explanation for anything.

Here's another sign: Keep off the grass.

what is "ageless"?
It means that nobody can say if there is any origin of time.
We know that time dilatates in gravitation field
so that if dilatating Universe is true the more it was compact the more time was slow.
thus you have some asymptotic curve of time you can never reach the origin

Why do you think Bible should not taken literally but Quran should be taken on face value?
Muslims have been accusing Jews and Christians for the corruption of their holy scriptures but they themselves are unable to refute the same doubt casted on Quran.
.This very attitude of Muslims make people of other religions attack on your Scriptures.

<quoted text> Why do you think that a God not existing is the natural default state ? History has shown by every single culture that has existed has had a belief in a God or Gods or a creative force of some kind ! That a God does exist appears to be the true Default state of the human race and not what you put forward as the "DEFAULT STATE " !
Humans have been here the briefest slice of time, as compared to the age of the universe.

What illiterate and ancient hunter-gatherers thought has little or no bearing on reality.

That is no argument, you moron.

God did not exist prior to the existence of humans on earth. And when the last human passes on earth? God will still not have existed.

If you can **SHOW** the actual GOD-REQUIRED-EVIDENCE?

You **might** have a case for your god idea.

Might.

Darwin's original book titled "On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races In the Struggle for Life" Shows just how much political correctness has hidden Darwin's full theory from public view ! He was a Racist and his theories were based on the assumption that the color of your skin determined your development towards the superiority of the white race ! Still think this racist has all the answers to life's biggest question ?

Maybe you should stop trying to think for us and begin thinking for yourself. You obviously have no idea what we believe.

You can not change history because you want to hide the truth , and that is the truth behind Darwin's theory of Evolution ! It was not all about Finches on the Galapagos islands !
Millions of people are familiar with Darwin's theory, accept it, and still are not racists. But in a defense of your dying god, you're happy to malign us all.

Why? You're upset because Darwin's work contradicted your bible and helped make your god unnecessary. So sorry!

If you do not have any beliefs then one must assume you do not have any thought processes ! guess what there is no definitive proof of the Big Bang Theory (If there were, then why is science not satisfied an now theorizing string theory and multiple universes ?) And there is NO evidence whatsoever to prove Darwin's theory of evolution ! Believe it or not ! So your evidence for all your beliefs are in reality non existent ! Its only your belief and faith in science that makes them so !
Are you aware that you have no vote in the matter? Evolutionary scientists, for example, don't care what you think about the theory of evolution, especially someone coming from such a spectacularly ignorant perspective.

It shouldn't surprise you to learn that neither the scientific community nor any of the rest of the critically thinking world have any interest in the opinions of non-experts in science, including the Christian church.

Why? Because rationalists don't take their scientific opinions from anybody other than the consensus of experts in good standing in the relevant scientific fields. Is that OK with you?

The relevant experts have said that the theory of evolution is sound and valid science, and that means that the issue is considered settled until and unless a Cambrian rabbit or some other new data causes them to say otherwise, whether you Christians accept that or not.

But don't feel picked on. It's not just you Christians that we ignore in these matters. We also aren't interested in the scientific opinions of crack whores or rodeo clowns.

For example, if rodeo clowns were to say like you did that "there is NO evidence whatsoever to prove Darwin's theory of evolution," nobody would bat an eye.

Similarly, if crack whores were to publish a similar position paper, I'm sure that you could predict that nobody would care much about that either. So it's not just you that is being ignored.

Incidentally, where do you think Christians fit in the list with crack whores and rodeo clowns? Your church is beneath both of them. Why? Because those other groups are merely unqualified to contradict the evolutionary experts, whereas Christian apologists have a known anti-scientific agenda and the same reputation for honesty as Wall Street bankers.

Does that sound fair?

What did prophet preach?(The other side of story)

Selection from the book MISHKAT AL MASABEEH (an authentic collection of sayings of prophet) Part-6

Subject: On showbiz and vanity

31. Prophet PBUH said “Verily Allah does not look at your faces or your wealth, but He look at your hearts and at your deeds”

32. Prophet PBUH said “If Allah looks in someone desire for hereafter, He puts into his heart satisfaction and focuses his thoughts and wealth comes to him …”

“And one in whose heart there is desire of wealth and he only shows to people about his righteousness, Allah brings before his eyes the fear of destitute, and he is always in fear and he does not any thing else from the world, except what Allah had decreed for him”

33. Prophet PBUH said “Even the smallest act so as to show people, is a sort of associating partners with Allah, and one who harms Friends of Allah (i.e. righteous people), he has (in fact) challenged Allah…”

Subject : Change in conditions of people during last days

34. Prophet PBUH said “In last days there would be 100 camels but not even one would be fit to ride on”(i.e. there would be a large number of Muslims, but very few of them shall have the right amount of faith)

35. Prophet PBUH said “A time will come, when for any one to practice his true religion would be like holding a burning piece of coal in his hands”

36. Prophet PBUH said “If any group indulges in stealing, Allah puts fear of enemies into their hearts

“If any group gets involved in fornication and adultery, death is spread into them “(i.e. shortage of population”

“If any group gets involved in cheating in weight and measures, they are inflicted with poverty”

“If any group gets involved in Injustice, infighting spread between them”

“If any group is involved in breaking treaties and trusts, they are ruled by their enemies”

“AU KAMA QAAL ALAIHI AL SALAT WA SALAAM (Prophet PBUH said these or similar words)
