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.

Same logic, exact same amount and type of evidence.
Actually?

I've seen several different movies about Spiderman....

So, there is >>more<< evidence of Spiderman.

No it isn't. The same amount evidence exists both leprechauns and your god. NONE.
I think you go and see a mental doctor....and tell him your problem is "you see no difference between God and leprechauns".

Let alone a creator who tells you what hand to use when wiping your arse.
That is what a "dumb" person will say.

I see a "car" that exist, why should I care who made it?

I will use it and say "No one created it".

A "reasonable" person would say "I do not know who created it, but it must have been created by some one". I would like to meet the Creator.

You choose, you are dumb or reasonable?

It is your choice, not mine!!

PS:

All these "little exchanges" prove how little thinking powers you "mental giants" have.

Thinking your assumptions are "facts".... this is the disease that Allah says in Quran "they only follow their conjectures and their desires...they have no knowledge"

You see a creator and you don't care who made the creator.

A reasonable person would say "I don't know who created the creator but it must have been created by someone".

In other words, you got your ass kicked because even you admit there is no more proof that your god exists than there is that Leprechauns exist.

Yeah...we know.

<quoted text>
"...["Nina"] says her brother helped plan countless suicide attacks.."

Isn't it always the same: a relatively few terrorists try to hold society (and their fellow religionists) to ransom. They use religion as a cover and Muslims "dutifully" try to minimise their crimes under the delusion that they are 'defending Islam', or some Islamic country or interest. Islamists condemn all kinds of things about the West with the desperate aim of putting Islam in a tolerable light. They try to portray the West as less moral than they are, but the suicide bombers (and their victims) are generally Muslims.

People should speak with one voice against terror, Muslim, religionist or otherwise.

Sadly in Islam it goes a step further. They are commanded to be soldiers of Allah and world domination being the ultimate goal. Not much wiggle room there.

I have friends who are Muslims and I have asked them if their cleric told them Allah instructed him to have them attack a non believer would they? Usually they say something along the lines of, they hope he would never do that.

Not the most comforting answer.

Youre the one asking me to prove that leprechauns dont exist.

God is the Creator and sustainer of all existance.
He has always been in human history and talked about since language/s have existed.
All races, languages and cultures have always held that there is a singular Creator or point of origin for all existance.

Until Karl marx that is.........

This is simply not true.

Greek mythology does not have a singular creator. Egyptian mythology does not have a singular creator. Norse mythology doesn't have a singular creator. Babylonian mythology doesn't have a single creator. And so on.

Amongst the pagan 'gods' there has always been a chief god, it must be the chief or senior god for some reason.

So ... your god is a bunch of concepts and nothing more.

Also, there have been millions of gods, not just one, mentioned.

Oh, and you still haven't proven leprechauns don't exist. Therefore, you have to believe in them, if you do not, then you are being a hypocrite by believing in your god.

Concepts explained by humans to other humans, concepts based on fact as understood by the physical senses.
Millions of gods?
Doubtful, different languages and cultures can have different names for the same God - the only God.
Jehovah, Yahweh, YHVH, Adonai YHVH, Allah and Holy Father are all names of the ONE GOD.

I asked for a definition of leprechauns to ensure that we are referring to the same entities.
So you cant later on redefine leprechauns and start your 'wheres the evidence' mantra
