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.

So you think it is reasonable to have faith that "a rock did it"?
As per (Your) normal, you 'speak' in riddles. What rock did what? My other question is, Why am I even considering to respond to utter BS in the first place?

Your emotionally arbitrary statements show a lack of the capacity to reason clearly and objectively.
Every time you post in this manner, you merely display your ignorance of the methods of logical discussion and debate.

You may think you don't need God, but you are composed of his energy regardless. If you weren't, you wouldn't be here to tell me about it.
Anchk, anchk, anchk, anchk! Not so damned fast, you can't claim that for anyone besides those demented enough to want it for themselves.

Not everybody is Ok with being Shanghaied, into the Jewish/Christain/Muslim theology scramble. Some of us, would do anything to not be ever associated with you nutso freaks, who don't even know the truth about the crap you are trying to sling all over other people.

Did you know that your Abrahamic god advocates the sexual usury of infants as soon as they are born. He has clear rules as to how invasive this usury can be. Boy or girl can be orally or anally penetrated, and both can be used in connection with the adult penis, as masturbatory aids, though the girl is not to be vaginally penetrated.

She is to be vaginally reserved for the use of her future husband, who can take possession, and marry her in one act, the act of vaginal penetration. It suffices as both wedding ceremony and proof of ownership, as long as she is at least three years and one day old. You know 'weaned and potty trained', and therefore old enough to be a wife.

Unless you know what you are slathering others with, you can expect them to slap it back in your face, especially when they can see what it is.

You are pushing Yahweh/Jehovah/Allah aren't you?

It all depends by what people mean by "defeat".
Atheists becoming the majority of people on the planet?
Atheists banning religions?
Most people drifting away from religion turn to become agnostics anyway.
Atheism itself is some form of faith.
Why should Atheism be faith? Atheism has nothing to do with any kind of "faith". It is science but not"faith"! Educated people have mostly to do with science but not with myths, which are religious stone age rests in the best way.

Why would you care?
Atheists embrace inconsistent morality.
They promote the idea of subjective morality.
So why are you contending that it is wrong to be inconsistent morally?
Are you using Gods laws of morality to argue that God doesn't exist again and has no claim on you?
There is not the faintest idea of a god. The morality of religions is bound to societies. But religions are bound on divers myths.

Religious morality is the most inconsistent morality imaginable.
Morality is class bound. For instance the morality of the stone age is different from the society of the slaveowners and in feudalism and capitalism. Socialism has turned to a different morality.

Yes, if you claim that morals come from an invisible supernatural sky deity without any evidence what-so-ever to substantiat your claim or at least differentiate it from all the other deity claims, then you are right.
I do try to be patient with stupidity, but not with those that are so proud of it as you are.
God of course is nonexistent and has no morality at all:

The production of amino acids under laboratory conditions is touted as proof of abiogenesis, but there's a hitch. All experiments producing some amino acids, do so only as a result of using an atmosphere specifically engineered to yield amino acids. Instead of searching for existing evidence that would support the idea of abiogenesis, researchers manufacture it. This is not science. This is called rigging the results
And they use atmospheres that are similar to what we think the earth had at the time. So?

Of course science is based on facts not on myths. Yes religions are based on myths, that is why myths are based on phantasm!

So non life didn't spontaneously create life then?
A *very* strange way to say it. Non-living chemicals became able to sustain the reactions and reproduce, which is life. Life *is* a complex collection of chemical reactions. None of the atoms in your body is alive, yet you are. Which shows that non-living atoms can work together to make life.
A rock didn't do it?
No, a rock did not do it. Most rocks are chemically simple. They are far away from the complexities of life. Instead, a complex chemical atmosphere, energy sources like lightning, the UV from the early sun, and deep sea vents, the disolving properties of water, ALL combined to produce the complex chemical reactions that are life.
And this evidence you keep pointing to, can you produce it?
Empirical evidence of course, as that is the only evidence that really accounts according to your own standards.
There are several different lines of evidence, from the simulations of the environments of the early earth, to the chemical reactions happening in our bodies, to the chemicals seen in interstellar space that are the same as the building blocks for life.

Do we have all the details? No. Do we have enough to see the outline? Yes.

Very sad.
Facts base on realities they may be popular or appealing. Religions at the worst are fakes, mostly they are myths!

He has shown much more scientific knowledge than you could ever hope to display. Fact.
Also the little fact that you attempt to pronounce judgement on a concept you can't even begin to understand only accentuates your ignorance.
In your unwitting arrogance, you are a poster child in favor of atheism. Never drink and drive. Learn to separate reality from myths, they just don't mix well.
You amuse me, I never have said reality and myth mix! Religions are totally based on myths. Atheism may be a private occation but the public has to come off of these myths!

Lots of different rock did it...

Same argument, increasing the complexity does not remove the analogy.

Non life created life, that is the basic argument of most atheists.

I notice many on here keep arguing that morality is subjective, but then they keep arguing absolute moral positions.

This type of inconsistency is a self refuting evidence that the idea of subjective morality is a bankrupt idea logically.

Not one of you has yet been able to deal with this...

Coherently and logically.

Arbitrary opinions don't count...
