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.

That's OK. Religion can exist in a shrunken, disempowered and irrelevant form, and you won't even know its there - like the Druids. You wouldn't mind Christianity if it were like Druidism. For example, what's the Druid position on abortion or gay marriage? Me, neither, and that's exactly the point. The Christians appear to be on their way to that status, too.
This is an exciting time for unbelievers.
Atheism is on its way. Uneducated masses are of course backward!

Indeed they are.

Education -- quality education, is always the cure for ignorance and superstition.

Anytime a person begins a quality education, and is allowed to continue it? If they live long enough, and keep getting educated, they will become an atheist.

All it takes is time and facts.

Religion cannot thrive in the face of facts, after all.

That is why religion embraces the lie (faith).

What about students having "choice" to answer questions in the exam? Is it "in humane" to test them and then grade them and their whole worldly life be influenced by what they do in their 'exams"

Come on, Come on, let us see how "humane we are in the affairs of this world".

But only our Creator is "In humane" if He assigns a purpose and test for us and checks and verifies who passes the test. What is "in humane about it?

Did you go to the mental doctor to take your mind to "de-thigh"?

So that you stop seeing "thighs" wherever you go.

Get the treatment, it would only help prolong your life.

Here's what muslims like to do...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-oxfordsh...

"A woman has told the Old Bailey how she was branded with the initial of a man who raped her and turned her into a sex slave when she was 12 years old.

The witness, now 19, was giving evidence at the trial of nine men accused of grooming children and exploiting them for sex in Oxford.

She said Mohammed Karrar used a hair pin to brand the initial "M" on her buttock to show she "belonged to him"."

Clearly this particular defendant was inspired by the prophet Mohammed and felt the need to emulate him.

These barbarians may get away with this in Islamic countries where the mentality is firmly rooted in the Dark Ages, but they won't get away with it in the civilised countries of the west.

As I understand it they are pakis targeting white girls, this would indicate that this is a racial problem rather than religious.
If it is shown to be racial would you still have a problem with it?

With every one "Muslim" doing crimes there are at least 10 other people doing the same crime, including the so called atheists. So why only blame Islam for the crimes?

You should condemn all other religion including atheism for being unworthy, why only pick on Islam?

Other than Muslims what people are strapping bombs to their chest and blowing themselves up? Muq this is standard practice taught by Islam.

Don't you think perhaps if the Quran didn't repeatedly talk about killing the infidel and jihad that Muslims wouldn't be blowing themselves up everyday?

And Muq you have shown that even you are effected by the violent teachings in the Quran because you admitted that you think Muslims to track their enemies the non believers instead of each other!

Instead of you saying Muslims should live in peace with everyone regardless of their beliefs, you said Muslims need to attack their enemies. How about Muslims should befriend all instead of making and attacking enemies?

This is a foreign concept to you because of your religion.

I would prefer that you pig shit eating pedophile trash quit raping and molesting babies.

Would my not knowing, protect the babies from having you filth putting your penises in them and all over their little bodies?

A real creator would kill your dirty ass, before you had thighed the first baby, you know that don't you. If your creator were real, you wouldn't exist anymore

It's mainly white girls that are targeted but not always...

http://www.sikh24.com/2012/02/grooming-docume...

I have a problem with anyone who commits crimes like these.

Yes, there seems to be a tendency for Pakistanis to do this but I'd put it down to religious culture rather than race. After all, you don't see gangs of Indian males doing this sort of thing.

I have doubt that you are a woman.

I have yet to meet so foul mouthed woman on these threads.

and do you know, any one resorting to hysteria, tantrums and getting mad with rage in any debate or discussion is the one who has no reasonable or logical answer.

So will you tell us, what is your problem?

What is your challenge? To de-evolve you into your ape like ancestor?

No I cannot do it. Can you?

PS:

And slowly your civilization shall reach to that state. Nudist have their right of "equality".

Sodomites and lesbians are already as "Normal" as rest of population.

Already majority of your population consists of Bastards children.

May be the "apes" would protest and say , they are ashamed to feel that once they shared ancestors with humans!!

I have a deal for you. I will completely prove that your creatot doesn't exist. Right here, right now. But you have to do something first. You have to prove that leprechauns DON'T exist
