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.

Provide evidence of this 'non-physical reality.' Without evidence, it *should* be ignored.

No, it only shows why particular beliefs about God are wrong: such as the Genesis story.
How can there be physical evidence for that which is non-physical? To expect it is not only irrational but ludicrous.

You are made in the image of God. You are spirit made flesh, or god-stuff incarnate. If you would know God then study yourself... both objectively and subjectively.
Which one? There are so many, Zeus, Woden, Yahweh, Allah, Hindu gods?

Doesnt it make more sense that gods are made in the image of us?

Ok let me slow this down because obviously your IQ and reading comprehension are on par with a Christhole preacher spunk gulper.

Why... Should... Anyone... Care... What.... Darwin's.... Personal.... Beliefs.... On... God/s...were?

You sound like a low IQ spunk spittoon.

Lol Seriously. I find your obsession with oral sex downright hilarious. Somebody is obviously going without. You may wanna look into that.
I just said that! Gah! Not once have I failed to acknowledge the fact that atheism has nothing to do with evolution. To point a fact, atheism has nothing to do with Charles Darwin either. But belief in God does. Seeing as how he was a devout believer for the majority of his life. It wasn't until the end of it that his beliefs became more agnostic. I feel like a broken record over here.

No, that is their *opinion*. You see, an opinion is something that is personal. A fact is something that is not dependent on a particular person's beleifs.
Scientific theories are not facts and yet you believe them.

Melt-down? What melt-down?
Do you get a bonus every time you call someone godbot perhaps?
Because you never stop! Apart from demonstrating your immaturity, what do you expect from it?
So, you are and atheist, and some people are not atheist.
What's the fucking big deal there?
Haven't you yet come to term with the fact that people are DIFFERENT, they also have DIFFERENT opinions. Or are you too childish to realise that?
It's about time you grow up, instead of calling any passer-by godbot...
Do you expect to convince anyone by attacking their beliefs?
Has it worked yet?

You don't know that, you simply assume as much because you choose to disbelieve.
It's not an assumption; it's a rational conclusion.

We KNOW religious delusions exist.
We do NOT know legitimate religious experiences exist.

So, given a claim, it is always more reasonable to explain it as a delusion.

What science understands only works in physical reality, but does not work in non-physical reality. It is only those who ignore the greater mental dimensions of reality who are unable to comprehend them....
Show some evidence that a "non-physical reality" exists beyond your imagination.

<quoted text>
Which doesn't explain why atheists learn heavily on scientific explanations to justify their assertion that God can't exist because they lack a belief in God.
We don't. Theists claim there is one or more deities. Atheists deny the theistic claim made without evidence. It's really that simple.

You claim Shiva exist. I doubt your claim and await evidence.

Only when you don't understand the use of metaphors in transcendent thought.

NO. I have confidence in them in direct proportion to the amount of available independently verified evidence in support of them.

Journalists following tips.
Journalists?

You put your trust in journalists rather than scientists?

All they're trying to do is to sell papers and many have no scruples about how they do it:

Wild and crazy stuff is popular - you just have to look at how many millions believe in magic and superstitious mumbo jumbo (that includes religion).

Forget the journalists, it's the scientists who put paid to the fraudsters. After all, who demonstrated that Piltdown Man was a hoax?

If you have never experienced transcendent events, how would you know such experiences do not exist and are not legitimate?

That which is beyond the ordinary range of human comprehension cannot be objectified...hence the necessity for metaphors.

If the story had not been reported in the newspapers, no one would have known it was a hoax. It would have remained one of science's dirty little secrets.
