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.

Try to get even one Paper pin "created" based on "wish power" and see what you get.
The problem you face here is the fact that paper pins aren't the same as the universe. It's a faulty analogy.

Nobody here gives two shits about your opinion of atheists. We care that you provide evidence for your claims. Your posts amount to nothing more than buttlip flapping.

They see the "models of Creator" which many religions present and then , they reject them one by one
You've presented no such thing. Sorry but faulty analogies, red herrings and circular reasoning aren't evidence for anything other than your ignorance of how reality works.

Although I have to sadly agree, one can only hope. Religion preys on the guilt, pain, and hoplessness of humanity. It demands indoctrination from birth, so as to continue and propagate it's parasitic hold on humanity. The good news is, that more and more people are leaving the myth behind. As people become better and better educated, they will eventually outgrow the infantile need for an invisible sky-gremlin, and will lose the fear that religion uses to keep the sheep in line. I may not see it in my lifetime, but I hope my children or at worst my grandchildren will one day see a world void of the plauge that is religion.
Don`t forget the nuclear age. Besides the natural infernos, tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanos, the accidents with AKWs and so on. All these will have an impetus on religion.

On all of these add.( evidence for)

There is no evidence for a creator and you will have it right. Remember Muq you have admitted you want Muslims to attack and fight killing non Muslims. You said instead of killing each other they should combine and kill non Muslims.

You also said people should ignore Muslim child rape which is so prevalent in your society.

This shows what kind of animal Islam has made you.

There is no Creator
There is no Purpose of our Life
There is no accountability of our deeds
There is no life after death
There is no heaven
There is no Hell
There is No soul
There are No angels.
Can you hear any thing positive from them?

If there were different Creators, then you would be using Hydrogen and Helium to Breath and I using Oxygen and Nitrogen!!
How idiotic you look when you raise questions like these.
I guess I've annoyed you.

You say there is a creator and you then proceed to define and limit her with your own words.

Well, it started by people giving things like trees or storms personalities. By a gradual process of generalization and a comparison to the kings in human societies, the concept of a ruling deity came early on.

At first, these deities were natural, but very powerful: Zeus and friends on top of a mountain, making mischief for the people of the day or Yahweh handing down laws from a mountain top.

Eventually, the deities were described as having more and more power, but being more and more removed from normal existence. Philosophy, specifically Platonism had a hand in this process describing a self-absorbed, abstract deity that, non-the-less, projected everything we see around us.

This was eventually seen as *too* abstract, so messengers from this ultimate deity to people were invented: Mithra, Jesus, etc.

When something exists, it itself is a proof for its Creator. This is common sense.

But when some one says that there is no Creator , which is strange, then he should give the proof.

But you people, reverse the logic and ask us to prove that Creator exists.

Either you people are dumb, or you have no ground to support your assumptions.

You are just trying to prolong the discussion, that is all.

Your picture on thread does annoy every one who looks at it.

I did not define "any thing" about Creator, mind you.

You people have no answer or proof to back your claim that there is no creator.

You think by repeating this phrase in front of your like minded group, would turn it a reality?

Get over it, dummy.

No it's not. The fact that you are unable to determine what occurs naturally and what is created is a common flaw with creationist idiots like you.

Sorry, burden of proof lies with the one making a positive claim. I make no claim that a god exists or doesn't. I merely put off belief till there is credible evidence. Unlike you, who will believe anything your imam tells you.

The sad thing is you are so out of touch with reality that you think you are making a difference here, when really all you're doing coming across like a fu&king moron.

Is there anything that does not occur "naturally"?

What is this "Nature" and how come it is there?

The problem is that you people have no understanding and do not want to go beyond a certain limit.

As a Creation we cannot define any thing about our Creator.

No creation can say anything about its creator.

How long you will be acting as "dumb"?

May be the picture is real you.
