Atheism to Defeat Religion by 2038

Apr 25, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Psychology Today

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.

Nope he liked college aged chicks unless you have evidence contrary? Regardless I said what not who so your answer is meaningless unless you worship Bill Clinton as a prophet?

So again since your English comprehension is so atrocious.

What do you call a man who has sex with a 9 year old girl?

The message of Islam is not for Arabs, but for all nations. etc.
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.

The three rabbits of the lunar cycle shock shock another moon myth in Islam! Allah's beast who smacks non believers with the staff of Moses and ring of Solomon! Hahahaha! And of course the flying horse with a Nan's head Al-buraq who flies the prophets around :))

Easy to find, but you won't provide any.

There are other things easy to find on the Internet. Atheism is on the rise, that is why people are more conscious of it.

Look at the fuss that atheists make and what the fuss is about. Do you want Scouts to discriminate against atheists? Segregated schools? Whole classes of Muslims leaving school convinced that Evolution is unproven while Creationism/ID is substantiated? Our schoolchildren segregated according to their parent's religious delusions?(It worked so well in Ulster?) Prejudice against gays and women? Listen to what we write.

And you talk about having religious faith as if 'acts of faith' are perfectly reasonable, or even inherently good.

It is not anti-religion to stand-up for secularism.(Note: secularism and atheism are religous terms)

I don't choose to be an atheist.'Atheist' is simply what religionists call me. I cannot make myself believe in a sort of magical sky-pixie. I need definitions and evidence.

One should try to see every point of veiw - and be careful to practice what one preaches.

I did a search for "Obama mocks Jesus" and only found items like the one paid for by a right-wing religious group suggesting that President Obama had mocked Liviticus and that it was Obama who was the one who took Bible passages out of context. The clip I saw showed that it was Pres Obama's words that were taken out of context. He was simply indicating the absurdity of using passages from ancient scripture to try to support modern poltical policies.

(Gaz - People shouldn't repeatedly change their monickers either. Trying to give the appearance you are more than one person? That's a bit disingenuous, isn't it?)

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?)

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.
