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.

Found it and watched it, Gaz.
Can you offer an instance where Professor Dawkins has been fanatical, please?(Or is that 'obvious' and 'easy to find' too?)

Not true. He is sane and rational. AND a very reasonable person.

and I think his ideas are just as full of holes as any religion.

You can see that the other world religions are wrong and delusional. They think exactly the same way as you do, about Islam.
To an outsider, magical stories of angels, and stories borrowed from Jewish mythology seem silly and superstitious.
For example Muhammed went on a night flight on a winged horse to heaven. They is plain ridiculous to those of us outside of the Muslim bubble. There are many more examples like this.
The reality is that these magical stories are no more than myths. The products of active human imagination. Heaven and hell, witches, gods accompanied by pantheons of angels and demons, jinn, fairies, dragons, vampires, and other mythical creatures, are completely imaginary. That is the reality.
As Mark Twain said(paraphrased), "It's much easier to fool people than make them realize they've been fooled."

The fact that all you have is the ability to sling mud at people you don't even know (without a shred of proof) and still fail to provide a link tells me all I need to know about you. You are irrelevant and easily dismissed.

The only reason you don't like Dawkins is because he's honest and willful. Everything that goes against your religion.

Very sad indeed. She had a bright future until she got caught up in Islam. But she went from one dangerous religion to another that actually had her blow herself up as ordered by the prophet.

Im not slinging mud and im not trying offense anyone, but Dawkins does believe in the ancient astronaut theory , which makes great films like Prometheus but to me that's all it is an interesting story backed up by one text whereas the bible or idea of creation is backed up by a hell of alot more. Also the whole evolution theory and I'm not trying piss on anyones fire here is just as flawed as the creation theory or do I have to elaborate even more. The argument always is going to boil down to well who made God and I'll always say well where did the particles that made your big bang come from.

Sigh. Since I need to break it down and explain it, let's use a model, shall we?
Men are 50 percent of the population. Women are 50 percent of the population. If you don't understand percentages it would be something like this:
4 men
4 women
One man marries 4 women. 4 men - 1 married man leaves 3 unmarried men.
Are you following me this far? Or should I take it down a few school grade levels?
Since there are no more women to marry, what will those 3 unmarried men do?
Marry a goat?
and i will repeat, there is no shortage of women.

"marriage is half of ones completion of Faith"
Wait. what?
Back to my example of 4 men 4 women.
1 man marries all the women. 3 men cannot complete their faith?
So now they are frustrated sexually as well as in faith?!?
That 1 married man is gonna be dead in a hurry. In the name of Allah so the other 3 can be faithful and get married.
if you can't or not married then you must remain virgin. all sex outside of marriage is prohibited.

The beauty is that there is no Scripture in any of the world's major religion that say that there are many gods.
They all agree that there is only One God of the Universe!!
The problem is only in the conceptual models as the followers of different religion have it.
If you look at Jewish people, they have a vision of a sort of having Special relationship with their YHWH. He seems to have a very special relationship with them, not because they are holders of banners of Truth, Monotheism and High Moral Character.
Just because they are descendents of jacob the son of Issac the son of Abraham.... obviously they have a racial concept of God Almighty, who hates other people and other races just because they are children from a separate sets of Mother and Father.
Now Coming to Christians, their God's model is a Triune one, in which they have made two partners in the Godhead. This is a concept which no one can understand. How God remain one when having three Different partners, all of them co-eternal, co-powerful and full God by themselves.
So somehow they have got confused in their concept of God.
Now coming to Hindus, their gods have special relationship with India and every thing Indian. Their scripture say that there is only one God, but in practice they have made thousands of gods, each doing special job.
So there concept of god is not Monotheist but Polytheist and it is not Universal.
It is only Islam which has retained the Purest Concept of Monotheist God, Allah is not Creator of only Arabs or only Muslims, He is Creator of whole Universe.
The message of Islam is not for Arabs, but for all nations.
Quran is not guidance for only Arabs or Muslims but for humanity at large.
And the Last and Final prophet is not only for Arabs and Muslims, but for all nations.
And Allah has no special relation with Arabs or Muslims, His justice and mercy is for all humanity, provided they follow His teachings.
So we can see that it is only in Islam that we have a proper concept of Monotheism and it is free from all Racial, linguistic or National bias.
Surely such a religion is which is most suited for humanity and will bring peace and justice to the world.
If Muslims are not presenting themselves as a good model of Islam, there is no justification for other people to not accept Islamic teachings on this excuse.
100% true

Unless clerics gang rape a woman for meeting in private with her fiancé to discuss the wedding right?

Because they had to make an example out of her. It's the way of the prophet

Atheism to Defeat Religion by 2038?

I don't think so.

I believe there will always be people who believe in God, and people wanteing to stay part of a religious structure. Their number may decrease, but spirituality and beliefs are there to stay. Atheism doesn't bring an answer to many questions individuals may have, it seems.

atheists are animals, its to be expected, evolution gives them the right to behave as such.
