Atheism to Defeat Religion by 2038

Apr 25, 2012 Full story: Psychology Today 23,169

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.

It is the worship of an evil being that grants your place in paradise.
You must do the opposite of the god you worship so that you can have eternal life.
Eternal lifeis a fairy tale, nothing else!

God's word the Bible, in the book of Revelation, shows us that Jehovah God condemns religions that do not teach the truth of God's word.
That would be any religion that does not teach there is only one God, Almighty God Jehovah. These religions would also teach doctrines that are from mans understanding of Scripture. That would include all Christian religions that teach the Trinity, hellfire punishment, immortal soul, apostalic succession, Rapture and salvation by faith alone.
The Bible says all religions of this world will be destroyed before Armageddon, we do not know exactly when that will happen, but the United Nations will accomplish that prophecy of Jehovah God, through Jesus Christ.
(Revelation 17:17, 18). . .For God put [it] into their hearts to carry out his thought, even to carry out [their] one thought by giving their kingdom to the wild beast, until the words of God will have been accomplished.
The Bible is full of fakes

to "lol"--Yes i was poor, did not realize at the time, because most people around us were in same shape.
we never went hungry. it did not slow my education. twelve straight years in a small country school, that was and is still considered one of best schools around. very low budget. I also managed to get a college education and many short techinal schools along the way. Being poor does not make you dumb, as some people believe. I thank God for a Father and MOther that helped me as much as they could and i did the rest. I am far from being rich, but at my age , i feel as if i am in fairly good financial shape and stil own the farm that i grew up on. Have a good day.
Sorry, there was never ever a god at all!

Sure I do. It's called reality, and a complete lack of evidence, and an error filled book that is supposed to be the word of this perfect god.
Of course the Bible is full of fakes!

Actually, I did not say all submissive people are religious either. You are reading more into what I typed. I said that religion attracts that type, there are several differing submissive personalities even, which I had not mentioned.
Perhaps you should stop being defensive. A psychologically dominant personality archetype is impossible to brainwash, that is part of my personality and why the brainwashing of the Mormon church failed to ensnare me. However I am also a socially submissive personality type, meaning in real life social situations I do not speak up much. There are no solid dominant or submissive people, we are all a grand mix of things, and it's that very mix that religion is against, thus the conformity element I mentioned being one of those attracted to religion. Nonconformists, like me, are abhorred with religion, but conformist archetypes are comfortable with it, even if they do not believe in it.
I find you are very brave individual. My respect for you!

If it is all about faith, than you would agree that that faith has no place in the public schools or the goverment, correct?

But when you speak of god, you're speaking about BLIND faith. Faith based on logic, and prior experience is not the same thing.
Your blind faith in an imaginary god belongs at home or at church. Period. Keep it out of the goverment, and the public schools.
Totally correct!

I hope you are right, but there are wars (in capitalism) and the nuclear infernos for certain.

God can decided to enforce judgement whenever He wants. As recorded in the Bible. He gives people a chance to change first. When the fullness has taken its course, He acts, according to the Bible.
The Bible is of course no "divine" book at all. It is faked in the interest up to present. There was never any god!

Ans.
01. Such are "idealistic definition" that have nothing to do with real concept of Christianity. In practical terms a Christian is a person, who believes in Trinity, and that Jesus died for his sins, and does not consider any possibility that a Prophet of God can come after Jesus. So he has made his mind shut.
02. It is con correct to say that every one follows the religion of his parents.
If that was the case, their would not be a Single Christian in the world!!
Did not the disciples of Jesus and earliest Christians left the religion of their parents and accepted new religion?
People have been continuously changing their religions and that trend has never stopped fully, but it has been slowed down.
The comments by Richard Dawkins are very superficial and valid for a specific stage in the life of established religions of the world.
If there were a god, then there would only be a single religion, and all peoples would know it.

Amen.

Sorry could not resist.

Yes what you stated is what I have been saying for a long time, and most atheists will agree.

But truth and reason is not a common among religious.
