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.

I just think religion is a disease of the mind like many others. In my work I hire people and I never hire believers. You can drop little hints to ask without offending and they will tell you. Some are obvious some harder. After that you can pick other attributes not to hire or keep interviewing until you get one that has the skills without the mental problem of god. Some religions are more nuts than others as well. Haven't met one yet where their god has come back to give them the job.
Arguably that makes you 'anti-secular' and as bad as religionists who discriminate against atheists, doesn't it? Also, I note the criteria that concerns you is whether or not they believe in god, but I have always thought that religion was probably more harmful and superstitious than a mere belief in some kind of 'higher power'.

As daft, divisive and harmful as religion is, I don't think it necessarily prevents religionists doing a good job of work. Some religionists even have scientific qualifications. Shouldn't people be hired for their abilities, not their religious affiliations (or lack of any)? Nor should applicants be descriminated against in employment because they would like to think there's a Sky-fairy.

(Or am I taking your post Waaay too seriously?:-)

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.
<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.
Well, god does not exist, but it is not "lack of believe" but lack of existence!

All you've done is verify exactly what I said. When science places no intrinsic value on the "objects" it studies, the end always justifies the means. Scientists can no more police themselves than can thieves. Science has a history of research much like the abuse by Nazi doctors during World War II when German physicians practiced unethical medical experiments on Jews, gypsies, and political prisoners. Enter the Nuremburg code and the IRB, the Institutional Review Board requiring science to focus its unethical practices on animal experimentation.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unethical_human_...
Regardless of these stop gaps, it is still happening.
http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/06/epas_u...
It is astounding that scientists still debate over the issue of animal sentience when it has already been established that animals think, experience emotion, and feel pain. To suggest that human life is somehow more sacred by comparison is another example of the end justifying the means. But don't think for a minute that these ghoulish fiends in lab coats do not salivate at the prospect of using humans in their diabolical experiments.
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/science/science-ne...
What gives scientific researchers a license to lie, maime and kill if not a lack of ethics? While scientists may exhibit ethics in their private lives, in their professional lives....cool objectivism is the honored rule. Compassion is not allowed. The Tuskegee Study (1932) symbolizes the medical misconduct and blatant disregard for human rights that takes place in the name of science. This 40 year long syphilis study was perpetrated upon what was considered to be at the time, "insignificant human surplus" made up of poor African American men who were told that they had "bad blood". These men were not informed of the research design and its risks to them personally...nor did they receive standard treatment for syphilis even when penicillin was available later during the study.
The lack of ethics in science is a world wide problem.

It is not only "lack of ethics" it is capitalism who has no way out of a nuclear inferno!

No,in the nuclear age we are certainly defined for the extermination of the human race!

Yeah it's a disease of the mind, but if they are not bringing it into the job they should not be weeded out because of it. In fact it should be said beforehand, that any form of "holy rolling" is not going to be considered as payable time. To have that indulgence on employers time will result in the paycheck being docked. If there is any disagreement, simply explain that a whirling Dervish allowed to spin through the office makes for an inhospitable work environ for your Vodun and Pagan employees.

It is amazing how much effort religion and its supporters will go in order to prove nothing. How many words you will use to achieve nothing except to offend peoples intellect with babble. Humans have a long way to go there is a lot this planet who's ideas are based on nothing. Frankly its a huge advantage for some of us so seeing it disappeared would not be an advantage totally. Since the children of the brainwashed are also being brainwashed I can see this advantage continuing to my kids. I'd just like to thank all religious nut jobs from the bottom if my heart for your ignorance and uncompetitive views which are in part fuelling my success. Thank you and keep up the good work!

insidesecrets has no knowledge apparently of what either atheism or humanism is. Nor does he have an understanding of philosophies since he seems to think that you don't have one.

That makes it impossible (of very close to it) to carry on a discussion of such subjects. And it is even harder with someone like insidesecrets who refuses to learn.

Why don't you award the degree to yourself and become 'One Man Organization"?

That would make all sense. You can print your theories then verify it as a peer and then authenticate it.

You still have not explained why your "great leader" raped a 9 year old girl-child.

Do you have a car? Do you make your own license plates and registration with crayons? Why not? How about birth certificates and marriage licenses, how many have you cut out and colored for your family? Do you make your own money from construction paper too?

Some people have standards, when it comes to going about accomplishing their goals in a legitimate and time honored way, it's too bad you don't. To have value and earning potential for it's holder, a degree must be earned, through hard work and diligence. You don't understand that concept do you?

This may be in the public, but not in the private one!In the latter case it will take centuries. However, in the nuclear age mankind will not have enough time to become even socialism! At this time capitalism has become suicidal. The extermination of the human race is already fact
