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.

There you explained the "Full Meaning" of Women's Lib!!
Your foul language shows the "True Esteem" in which you keep your women.... and the second part shows the purpose of "Women Lib".
Every one should cut and paste your post on their doors.
You are a caveman in a world full of skyscrapers. You can't even accept Lesbians. Even most straight men can accept Lesbians.

I don't even think you're a man - maybe some kind of rat creature that learned how to type?

What about islamic Female Genital Mutilation?
What about forced sex within marriage not being rape? That's a particular favourite lie of muslims.

PS allah's a cu*t.

As many as "wilfully" reject the message sent by God and mock His Prophets and Messengers.
A crime does not cease to become a crime because more people perform it.
That is the "Modern Democratic" way, in which a crime cease to become a crime and becomes a norm when more people start performing it.
Like Sodomy, Lesbiansim, Free Sex, Strip tease joints, live shows, gambling, usury etc.

....
How can you compare "pygmies" like Karl Marx with these Giants of the God' chosen Servants and Prophets...
In comparing the stature and importance of Karl Marx with the Prophet Mohammed I would simply note that Karl Marx is more recent and more relevant. KM talked about a useful ideological (if failed) concept and didn't ramble 'prophetically' about "Allah". He will ultimately be seen as historically important, whereas Mohammed will be just another prophet of just another god amongst many...
http://www.godchecker.com/
There are lots of prophets and sooth-sayers, but they have no real importance. The degree of their following has importance, but such followings end with the superstition. So Mohammed's importance will end with the Abrahamic superstition that is Islam.

Religion, like all superstition, is bound to decline over time in the face of education and science.

(That's what I prophesy :-)

<quoted text>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?:-)
OK of course no "Sky-fairy". But the nuclear inferno is no fairy at all!

I may conclude that the "power of prayer" didn't do anything for the Pope. just a thought!
Seems to me god is a myth and the pope is just a natural man not a vice god on earth. Why should he??

One thing’s for sure: humanists are poised to reach out to the growing number of “nones” and show humanism as the reason-based alternative to traditional religion.

From:
http://www.thea-blast.org/in-depth/2011/03/29...
look at a country such as Saudi Arabia. Although there is no law in place that requires citizens to be Muslim, almost all Saudi Arabian citizens are Muslim. Religious freedom is severely limited to non-existent. In 2004, the U.S. State Department declared that “freedom of religion does not exist in Saudi Arabia” and that “non-Muslim worshippers risk arrest, imprisonment, lashing, deportation and sometimes torture.”
Unquote.
Make of that what you will, but you'll be hard-put to indicate where religion is increasing amongst an educated and free population.
Having been to Saudi many many times i can tell you first hand this is bollocks.

I have had many taxi drivers who were christian, were proud to be and hung a crucifix from their rear view mirror

There are also ex-pat communities that are full of non muslims and women are allowed to drive within these communities, there are english and american schools, you can buy booze & pork and watch NFL on the telly.

Im going to assume you have no idea about womens rights in Saudi and point out that women are not allowed to drive at all in Saudi.

EXCEPT: Expat communities allow it, these are gated communities policed by rent-a-cops - armed to the teeth and the entrance has a manned MG3 7.92mm Machine gun or two.

Do you mean drive round a car park?

My Polish friend had to dress up like a polyester Dalek to go anywhere off campus. She certainly couldn't drive anywhere and had to be chaperoned.

She couldn't get pork, but she could get alcohol, which is shipped in under the description "furniture".

Wow they are so subhuman that they have to have armed gunmen so a woman can drive three blocks to get some Tylenol?

Ah the joy of the religion of peace. I wonder how many women will be stoned to death today for witchcraft or whatever?

Still no explaination why your "prophet" was a child-raping illiterate.

Why?

So, only in special, closed-gate provinces? Where the "evil driving women" are out of sight of the rest of the country?

Is that about it?

What a "lovely" place to be.

Not.

But it IS typical of True Believers™ the world over.

Back during the reign of Genuine Christianity™, there were similar closed-gate communities of non-christians.

They were always treated horribly.

Much as gays are treated by Genuine Christianity™ in the US, even now.

But still closed.

Such is the consequence of letting True Believers™ run the government.

Are you surprised why non-believers fight True Believers™ in the US, for control of the government?
