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.

No I admit I didn't, because I was searching on "Thinking".
Yours is a great post. The 3 stages of so many fundie posts:
1. Attempt (but fail) to destabilise the scientific method without admitting you're on a religious crusade.
2. Say we all need their religion. Fail again.
3. F**k off crying and threatening damnation.

If a scientist told you to leap off the nearest cliff to adjust a chemical imbalance, would you do it?
I'll have a go at answering that one.

No, I certainly wouldn't - because, it would most likely prove to be fatal.

There - that's my honest answer.

Your turn now....

Would you obey your god if he ordered you to slit the throat of the child next door?

What sock gremlins have to do with this?
If someone says "there is no God", it's an affirmation, it's taking a position on the existence of God (negative in this case).
The person who says "there is no God" believes in what he says; therefore atheism is a belief.
Even atheism have faith in their beliefs.
Atheism is increasingly seen as a faith by outsiders.
The fact that (some) atheists also try to convince others of their beliefs, to convert them to their faith don't make them different from religious missionaries.
Agnosticism isn't a belief or a faith; it is just an intellectual position. Agnosticism is the recognition that one is in doubt and cannot be conviced one way or the other about the existence of God.
To me, as an atheist (for 70 years or so) it is god non existent. The hole religious myths are at best fairy tales. Religious leaders are mostly fakers or worse. Uneducated masses are a pity or commited to crimes for milleniums.

We think alike.

We see why their beliefs bring, the killer is a male and his victim is female.

Pay a fine and move on the Islamic leadership way.

Hi Muq,
Another news story of interest for you.
Saudi preacher who 'raped and tortured' his five -year-old daughter to death is released after paying 'blood money'
http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middl...
Rather than getting the death penalty or receiving a long prison sentence for the crime, Fayhan al-Ghamdi served only a few months in jail before a judge ruled the prosecution could only seek ‘blood money’.
I know you will say this is nothing to do with Islam. But you need to start waking up to the insanity of religion. This sort of thing happens too often.

It aint necessarily so wrote:
<quoted text>
Rational ethics such as those embodied in the Affirmations of Humanism are far superior to Christian ethics. Christians ethics should be ignored wherever they contradict rational ethics.
You're an atheist, not a humanist. You have no philosophy, no code of rational ethics, you're not an organization. You simply lack a belief in God. Isn't that your standard mantra?

Atheism leaves people feeling vulnerable. Without a divine protector to keep their best interests in check, they become frightened people and frightened people don't want freedom. They want protection, a leader who will order their lives for them. That leader is secular science. And what has secular science provided to soothe the savage beast, this accidental creation alive without direction or purpose? Since Darwin's Origin of the Species, there has been a protracted period of scientific speculation, theories, observations and opinions, but no substantiated conclusions identifying the atheist place in creation. He is left to his own wiles, hence his paranoia.
It aint necessarily so wrote:
Actually, Christians really have no idea about right and wrong at all. Anything that your god is alleged to have said or done is called perfect love. If you can convince a Christian that his god commands him to enucleate the eyes of puppies with a fork, they'll do it and call it perfect love.
The paranoid atheist organizes the world around his obsession with religion. He cuts everything out that does not apply. Invents stories to support his fears until all conforms to his beliefs.
It aint necessarily so wrote:
Furthermore, unlike secularists, Christians are desensitized by a bible that catalogs its god's genocides and other atrocities one after another, chapter after chapter.
And they are taught that suffering is their god's will. How sick is this form a woman that the church wants to declare a saint:
"I think it is very beautiful for the poor to accept their lot, to share it with the passion of Christ. I think the world is being much helped by the suffering of the poor people." – Mother Teresa
This combinations of ideas has had a devastating effect throughout history. Because of these attitudes, if you were a Jew in Nazi Germany, and the only thing standing between you and the gas chambers was the quality of Christian morality and character, you didn't have much chance. If you were waiting for these tens of millions of church trained Christians to do what Jesus taught and stand up and say, "This is wrong! Stop, Herr Hitler!" you were a dead Jew.
Humanism has no such failures.
Of course it has no failures. It has never been tested in its pure form. It's a philosophy, not a society. A philosophy that has been polluted by various interpretations since its inception. Whose version of humanism are you talking about? Religious humanism? Secular humanism? Inclusive humanism? Renaissance humanism?

The communist ideal of giving everything to the collective appears in the Bible, and that was many centuries before Marx and Engels.
The Bible also shows how defying the collective has fatal consequences.
Perhaps Marx was inspired by the Bible.
Now don`t be so quick with your judgment. The nuclear age may destroy capitalism and mankind too. So there will be the end of humanity! So we may be have no human history anymore. This will be regrettable, but nature does not care! Perhaps then a different future will begin!
