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.

Can you define the low ground and give a rational explanation as to why it is low ground?

Oh, and I never said ID was a fallacy. A fallacy is a misleading or unsound argument.
ID isn't an "argument", it's just not science. Come up with some verifiable predictions that allow ID to be tested and clearly state the null hypothesis for these tests and then we can all consider ID on it's merits. Until you do that, you're just blowing smoke.
Is science omipotent?

No. Neither is it omniscient, which is what you were really attempting to ask.

But it is the only method we have of gleaning any testable / verifiable understanding about how reality functions.

Why is killing witches wrong?

As an atheist you have no reason to hold that moral view...

You can verify abiogenesis?

Empirically?

You do not need an intercessor whether it be religion or science to define and validate reality for you. As a co-creator with God, you already possess that knowledge. Being is its own justification.

Why should an atheist care if they are less or more moral?

Why are you asking a string of tedious questions rather than trying to make an actual point?

They are not tedious, but they are challenging.

Can you answer them?

Wrong, killing of your own species is wrong more often than not, especially if the reason cannot be justified. It opposes the basic instinctual behavior of all animals.

Morals are an artificial construct, we choose them as a society, it's one of the benefits of social traits.

Can you ask a question that has not been address a hundred times already?

Yes I do. As a member of human society I can and do hold that killing is morally wrong and reprehensible.

There's more evidence for that than any magic **poof** from an invisible sky deity.

No, they are simplistic and show a complete lack of understanding about any aspect of atheism.
