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.

The problem with much of modern secular education is that it teaches people what to think and not how to think...

Correct.
"Amoral vs. immoral- Immoral things are bad, and amoral things are either neutral from a moral perspective or simply removed from moral considerations." http://grammarist.com/usage/amoral-immoral/
Christianity is immoral.
Your religion, which is grounded in a fraud, fosters fear, guilt, shame, division and strife. It teaches man to fear and hate his world, and to despise his own flesh. It teaches him to crawl on his knees begging for forgiveness for being human, and to see decay everywhere he looks.
If atheism is "amoral", then how can you argue as an atheist, that something else is immoral?

I am surprised that you don't know that prior to Hitler (up to 1933), Germany was a democracy.
So once Hitler and his party had been defeated, Germany was able to return to its democratic institutions. They were never imposed by the allies.
In Japan, the US were quite prudent in leaving the Emperor Hiro-Hito in place as head of state, instead of judging him as war criminal. The reforms were very superficial and not imposed. Japan always had a liberal audience that came to the fore when the warlords were tried and executed. Japan was allowed to trade military power against economic power, and gain self esteem that way.
The US rearmed Germany again against the UdSSR. Most of the nazis stayed in its positions, in Japan too!

Are you talking about empirical deductive observations forming what we term "science"?
The "position of Christianity" is absolutely false, since there is not the faintest idea of a god. Of thausends of gods in human history there was not one god real! Mostly uneducated peoples are religious.

Did you have a rational argument to make Henry?

All is see here is your opinion.

And that is known as an arbitrary argument and is by its own nature self refuting...

Post of the day! You friend have just won the Internet!!
It aint necessarily so wrote:
<quoted text>
Two Middle Eastern mothers are sitting in a cafe chatting over a plate of tabouli and a pint of goat's milk. The older of the two pulls a bag out of her purse and starts flipping through photos. They start reminiscing.“This is my oldest son, Mujibar. He would have been 24 years old now.”
“Yes, I remember him as a baby” says the other mother cheerfully.
"He's a martyr now though" the first mother confides.
"Oh, so sad dear” says the other.
“And this is my second son, Khalid. He would have been 21.”
“Oh, I remember him,” says the other happily,”he had such curly hair when he was born.”
“He's a martyr too” says the first mother quietly.
“Oh, gracious me ...” says the other.
“And this is my third son. My baby. My beautiful Ahmed. He would have been 18”, she whispers.
"Yes" says the friend enthusiastically,”I remember when he first started school”
“He's a martyr also,” says the first mother, with tears in her eyes.
After a pause and a deep sigh, the second Muslim mother looks wistfully at the photographs and, searching for the right words, says .... "They blow up so fast, dear, don't they?"

You worship that retarded god? Couldn't you at least worship a god smart enough to know that bringing a whip into a house of worship is a bad idea?

Seriously you believe that retarded myth?

Zombie Christ lol!

This is why we don't let the faithful think for us.

BEDEVERE: And what do you burn apart from witches?

VILLAGER 1: More witches!

VILLAGER 3: Shh!

VILLAGER 2: Wood!

BEDEVERE: So, why do witches burn?

[pause]

VILLAGER 3: B--...'cause they're made of... wood?

BEDEVERE: Good! Heh heh.

CROWD: Oh yeah. Oh.

BEDEVERE: So, how do we tell whether she is made of wood?

VILLAGER 1: Build a bridge out of her.

BEDEVERE: Ah, but can you not also make bridges out of stone?

VILLAGER 1: Oh, yeah.

RANDOM: Oh, yeah. True. Uhh...

BEDEVERE: Does wood sink in water?

VILLAGER 1: No. No.

VILLAGER 2: No, it floats! It floats!

VILLAGER 1: Throw her into the pond!

CROWD: The pond! Throw her into the pond!

BEDEVERE: What also floats in water?

VILLAGER 1: Bread!

VILLAGER 2: Apples!

VILLAGER 3: Uh, very small rocks!

VILLAGER 1: Cider!

VILLAGER 2: Uh, gra-- gravy!

VILLAGER 1: Cherries!

VILLAGER 2: Mud!

VILLAGER 3: Churches! Churches!

VILLAGER 2: Lead! Lead!

ARTHUR: A duck!

CROWD: Oooh.

BEDEVERE: Exactly. So, logically...

VILLAGER 1: If... she... weighs... the same as a duck,... she's made of wood.

BEDEVERE: And therefore?

VILLAGER 2: A witch!

VILLAGER 1: A witch!

CROWD: A witch! A witch!

That is religion. When you're talking about a god - a supernatural being - as if it's real, that's religion.

Do you worship it? That's religion.

Do you pray to it? That's religion.

Do you believe that it transcends and created the universe? That's also religion.
mtimber wrote:

That's religion, too.

There are various qualities that allow you to identify when something is religion, sports, the movies, government, music, cuisine - whatever the topic.

For example, if it's about enacting laws, it's government. If it involves various pitches sounded simultaneously and varying over time chosen for their aesthetic value, it's music. If it's about what happened in the past, it's history.

And if it's about gods, it's religion.

This is becoming an increasingly commonly seen meme: "I'm spiritual, not religious." Apparently the word "religion" has been tarnished if so many of you want to distance yourself from it.

Atheism isn't an ethical system, so I'm not arguing as an atheist. I'm also a secular humanist, which is an ethical system.

Sickening.

What if he said, "So help me Smurfs"? The way that would make you feel is how I feel about a grown man in a position of responsibility giving lip service to a ghost.
