Atheism to Defeat Religion by 2038

Apr 25, 2012 Full story: Psychology Today 23,198

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.

Do you still kill witches?
Religious morality is the most inconsistent morality imaginable.
On this I agree with you totally. As far as witches are concerned, I don`t (happily) live in certain regions in Africa. BTW I am against any religions at all. In the nuclear age the most urgent one is to abrogate atomic weapons and AKW too. The survival of humanity is the most urgent one.

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 has nothing to do with the bible. The bible is full of fakes and lies and of course errors. The bible as all religions are in the interests of the mighty and rich ones. The more people get educated, the more they realise them the truth.

Your disbelief isn't doing much better. Atheism is a fad cult whose followers worship Richard Dawkins. They believe in a spontaneous, causeless, sourceless, purposeless, meaningless existence and are more fanatic about their beliefs than Christians are about God. They use science to justify their dogmatism and many actually believe their own BS! Interestingly, most people who become atheists have an overwhelming desire to feel superior because they were picked on in high school and are struggling with residual teenage angst.

Of course science is based on facts not on myths. Yes religions are based on myths, that is why myths are based on phantasm!
Religion's truths are absolute. Science's truths are always undergoing modification.

God of course is nonexistent and has no morality at all:
Duh....how could a god who doesn't exist possess morality? What passes as morality among amoral atheists is a thin veneer of shifting scruples pasted over some other unsightly material.

It is not a question of God existing or not, it is a question of Gods authority over you that you take the real issue with.
Then why is your god such a failure that we can continually mock, ridicule, and dismiss it? If your god was real, then why do so many christians become atheists?

Nothing is absolute, so that means you admit religion has no truth.

Strawman much? Stop stalling and demonstrate why anyone should believe that your god is anything more than a delusion.

Any century now...

So you are claiming abiogenesis is happening in everyone right now???
No. Abiogenesis is how the *first* life got started. The question is how the complexity of the chemical reactions initially developed. You were talking about whether non-living things 'create' living things. The answer to *that* question is a definite *yes*.

You realise that you have just solved the atheists biggest mystery, if you have indeed understood what abiogenesis is.
I suspect you don't, hence your claim here.
Abiogenesis is the development of the complexity necessary for life from the initial building block chemicals. We have a good over-view of that process but do not know the details.

But that is a different question than the one you proposed: do non-living chemicals 'create' life? The answer to *this* question is yes. The non-living atoms in your body combine to produce the *living* organism that is you. Now, the complexity is already there, so the question of how the complexity originated is still open. But that is a different question.

No, religious truths *claim* to be absolute. But they are not. In fact, they are mostly wrong of meaningless.

Yes, science has the ability to modify its beliefs to repair its mistakes. Religions, however, simply claim that their new ways have always been done. Science is honest and religion is dishonest.

Sounds like the religious morality to me. Slavery? Well, it was OK in Old Testament times, but not now. Subjection of women? Birth control? The religious stance on these questions has generally been the immoral one.

You amuse me, because for more than 70 Years I don`t believe in no god at all. God is nonexisting so why should I be so crazy and believe in such a thing?

Ah, but which religion?

There are thousands to choose from, each with their own "absolute truths".

They can't all be right but they sure as hell can all be wrong.
