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.

Doubt that atheism will rise again
Show us all with your mighty intelligence where it says in the atheist bible that we must all commit mass murder...

That's right you're a liar.

Hitler was catholic, Stalin did not kill people because they believed in god, neither did Mao.

You see, you theists can try to lie as much about atheists as you like, but in the end the truth will prevail.

It's amazing that in your very own bible, it says that atheists are fools and abominable people - people like Bill Gates for example.

You judge people before they're even born and no theist has ever corrected their book on this matter.

Why should we respect people who spread such hate and ignorance?? Tell me. F*ck your cults and all they stand for.

Strange case of A Professor from Outer Space visiting Earth
Prologue :
After seeing the "encouraging result" from my little analogy of Train and Painting, I would like to experiment a little more..
Since Atheism is very closely connected with theory of evolution, so much so that Every Atheist is a believer in the TOE. I know there are many religious people also who believe in TOE, but many do not believe in it also.
In fact TOE has a big hand in growth of Atheism.
This example was given by a Great Islamic Scholar of our time, MAULANA MAUDUDI of Pakistan. I present its translation In English, not verbatim, but in my own words.
Strange case of A Professor from Outer Space visiting Earth
01. It so happened that once a Professor from Outer Space with students landed on earth on a research mission.
These people had a "Strange disability"…. They could see every thing else on the earth, but they could not see any "humans".
02. Their Space Rocket landed in Bombay, a thickly populated city, with every mode of transportation available in abundance.(But they could see no humans, they were all empty).
They found many Bullock Carts, Horse Driven Carts, Chariots, Bicycles, Scooters, Auto Rickshaws, Cars, Helicopters, Airplanes, Ships, etc, All moving here and there automatically with no one inside.
03. They watched in amazement, finally students turned to the professor and asked, how come so many strange things are moving in zigzag fashion, with no one inside and how come they came into being.
04. The professor, scratched his head, looked hard at various objects, made notes, checked and cross checked his notes and then finally said in his "Scholarly voice".
05. "My observations say that Bullock Cart is the oldest amongst all these. So that is where it all started. In the beginning there was nothing, except bullock carts.
06. Then the bullock cart started to Evolve, it changed into BULLOHORSEE….Then into HORSOBULLE….and finally into Horse Driven Cart.
07. Then this Horse Cart evolved into HORSCYCLO….CYCLOHORSE…. and became Cycle.
08. After many centuries, Cycle evolved into CYCLOSCOO….SCOOTCYCLO…and then into Scooter!!
09. And in the same way they evolved into cars and planes and rockets. The 'Transitional forms being "SCOOCAR, CARSCOOT, CARPLAN, PLANCAR, CARROCK, ROCKCAR.
10. "Pardon Me Professor!" One Dumb looking student interrupted the lecture, "But where are these BULHORSEE, HORSEBULL, HORSCYCLO, CYCLHORSE…..etc. I do not see them any where around.
11. "What a Dumb Question" shouted the professor "They all became extinct after serving their evolutionary process. Just look around and you will find them.
12. So all the students went on treasure hunt and anything they found from the broken parts of any vehicle were collected and displayed in the "Evolutionary Museum" of the Professor on his planet.
13. Visitors come and "marvel" at the depth of knowledge of professor and what great collection he has and every thing is explained so beautifully and so logical and so reasonable.
14. Of course every one on this earth will laugh at the "findings of professor". Just because of their own disability not able to see humans, they weaved this strange story.
15. But the same humans do exactly same thing what the professor did when they themselves try to explain "abundance of life forms on this earth". They Remove Creator from the Equation and try to prove their case by only guess work.
16. Their fossil collection and fossil evidence is nothing else but all the scrap collected by those students from earth. No Transitional forms were discovered and shall never be discovered, because there is nothing like Transitional Forms in reality.
You lie like its a hobby.

Atheism is a lack of belief in god. Can you point out where the intolerance part is in this definition?

In fact its theist that are intolerant of atheists. Just look what your bible has to say about atheists, that no christian has ever had the balls to correct.

Read my previous posts about atheism intolerence and other people's posts also.

The examples of atheist societies in the 20th century have been one of intolerence, genocide, persecution, mass murder, etc...

When atheists get in power in a country, they end up being even worse than the rulers of theocracies like Iran or saudi Arabia.

Just look at the USSR, China, Cambodia, Cuba, etc... where the state was atheist. Atheism is more risky to individual freedom than religion now.

I am not Christian and I do not have a religion, so talking to me about the Bible is like pissing in the wind. I just maintain that atheist militants are just as intolerent as religious zealots.

We need a mixture of different opinions, and not one in control.

Also, why atheists keep on refering to the Bible as if Christianity was the only belief on earth, and their only opposition? What about Buddhism, Sikhism, Paganism, etc...?

Like I said before, show us with your mighty intelligence where in the defintion of "lack of belief in god" is your example of intolerance & mass murder?

The answer is that it is not, because you are a liar, lying about atheism.

It's probably because you're an idiot who doesn't actually know the definition of atheism is.

If you did you would realise that nobody kills in the name of atheism. There are no instructions within atheism that say we must kill hundred of thousands of people - this is where you are lying.. On the other hand religion is the cause of many many proven atrocities throughout history.

Reality is not formed upon opinion, reality is formed by science, evidence and experimentation.

Religion is pure fiction and has no intellectual merit or value to society.

The problem is that most people in the world are uneducated about science, like yourself, and seem to think that religion and science are equal, when they are not.

You can deny it as much as you want; atheism fanatics are just as dangerous as religious fanatics.

The best explanation you can find is to look at the society in USSR under Stalin, China under Mao and Cambodia under pol pot, where atheism was in control of society.

Atheists in power are just as dangerous as religionists in power.
End of story.

A balanced society, one that is happy with itself, is one where different beliefs cohabit with atheism too.

The rethoric of most atheists, including on this forum, and even you, is that they would like to eradicate religion.
Atheists are aggressive, they think they are morally superior. Their aim is not to keep their philosophy to themselves, but to destroy religion, and given a chance, to persecute believers.
This is why I say that atheist fanaticism is just as dangerous as religious zeal.

"Atheism is a lack of belief in god." that's the soft definition.

In fact, atheism is the denial of the existence of god and the hostility against those who are believers.

Atheists are not happy to have their own philosophical opinion, they just cannot tolerate any other opinion!

Why not cite Sweden or Japan or other modern secular societies where atheists are the majority? Wouldn't fit in with your bigoted straw man argument now would it?

strange man.

why don,t you tell the people in this thread that the vile crimes you mention,are two things YOU have defended during your defense of all things Islamic?

while you are at it why don't you tell them why you think the Taliban are "freedom fighters" and how you defend their right to murder young girls for the crime of wanting an education?

Hey here's a better idea, tell us why anyone should accept god as anything more than a figment of someone's imagination?
Oh and seriously did you think those scriptures are good for anything other than laughing at the idiots who made it up? Better yet start off with why anyone should care about what the bible says?
<quoted text>
I will respond to your posts if they contain any indication of logical argument. Thus far it has shone by its absence. You are welcome to study why Antony Flew, The World's Most Notorious (ex)Atheist came to the conclusion that there is a god. But then, he was not intelligent to start with. OH no!! being an atheist, he must have been. So..... confusion reigns my friend and you know it.

It is not obvious that atheism is in majority in Sweden. Have you been there? Many people still attend the Lutheran church, for example.

Plus, the atheists there haven seized power with the intention of eradicating religion. Sweden is a liberal society.
