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.

Atheism is Bull shit. If anything paganism will be the new religion of the future since the Catholic Church was first built on paganism, that is a belief in multiple saints which replicates old pagan Gods.
It was impossible for early Europeans to believe in one God since they were so used to believing in pagan multiple God like entities so thats why early Christians like Paul and Peter made up the Christian religion where they could pray to multiple deities like the saints.
The catholic church is finished!

Correct.
But it's even worse than you said, here-- over the centuries, religion has stood firmly in the door to knowledge. Take Xianity for example, it's very first sorry tale, is one forbidding learning, and punishing anyone who does (the real meaning of Adam and Eve fable: knowledge is forbidden).
So, with religion standing in the way of discovery, humanity is hampered from searching out new truth.
If not for the Dark Ages, when Xianity ruled Europe, who knows? Human kind might well have colonized Mars & been well on the way to a terraformed Venus, by now.
Utopian dreams in a nuclear world, which is empty of humans by nuclear devastations!

Apart from your first line?
What you say does fit rather well with reality.
But atheism is simply a rejection of all >>imaginary<< gods.
And?
Since, to date, no one >>ever<< in the history of the world, has managed to produce adequate godly proof of a god or gods?
All gods are, each and every one, imaginary.
Which means that atheism is hardly "Bull shit" as you said, now is it?
Without capitalism we would still have the inheritance of the atomic thread. There is no hope to get rid off these cancers.

in UK you see a man "kissing a man" and you clap your approval.
In UK you see a women doing the same and you clap.
In UK you see a woman parading naked or almost naked and you clap your approval.
In UK you see a women properly clad and hiding her body from public graze and your face get distorted?
It is really weird in UK !!
I note you couldn't answer my questions. The most basic ones imaginable about religious beliefs.

And there isn't anything weird about homosexuality or women holding themselves responsible for their own behaviour. It is oppression and control of women that should be considered oppressive,(not weird). The UK only seems odd to you because of your narrow, dated and ignorant view of the world. Still, that's what religion seems to do to some people.

Religion = superstition
Only fools fool themselves Muq.

Ans.
1. I think you share your problem with your friend and should share an adjoining cell. Because you reject both god and leprechauns. And you have additional problem with seeing “thighs” all 24 hours of your life. You need more urgent help.
2. You can use car without ever thinking about “who made it”(but the idea that some one made it and if it breaks down I have to go to him to get it repaired)….. but the concept of Creator is not that simple.
If it was mere a “philosophical discussion” then it does not matter any way, but it is not a philosophical discussion, it is linked with “what is purpose of our life on this earth”
And more frightening is “what shall happen to me when I die”. If you think these questions are not important to you, then again you are in need to see that doctor.
3. You have no real answer as to these questions and when some one is telling you, you just make fun of him.
The only cure for such people is to face death and find out by themselves.
But you believe or do not, it would not change the realities any way.
2: I use a car & IF it breaks-down. I CAN 90% of the time repair it myself, owing to the fact I'm EDUCATED in auto mechanics. As with religion, I AM EDUCATED sufficiently to know it is BS.You & other believers rant on about "purpose of life." WHY should there be a purpose? We ALL have mothers, are going to die, rot and return to where we came from - earth, or as some prefer dust (to dust.)I find amusement in religion as I do in all fairy stories.

So I take it you can't prove or disprove that leprechauns are the creator of the universe? Why won't you answer the question instead of dodging it with insults? Your creator is just as plausible as leprechauns. The sooner you admit, the sooner you can leave this forum with whatever shred of dignity you think you might have.
BTW, you can't really saw a specialist. That would be assault and/or possibly murder.
<quoted text>
There is no debate here. You claim a creator exists. We asked you to prove it and all you gave for evidence were red herrings and arguments from ignorance. That's not debate, that's us here standing around in a circle watching you play with the sh!t in your diaper and trying to convince us it's chocolate.

We really don't need to discuss your percieved failures. But really, we as atheists have no problem with you being gay. We really don't.
Why waste so many words?

Just go and see the mental specialist and your problems will be solved.

You are trying to prove that a circle is a square. May be you can prove it by logic and hollow words, but a Circle will remain circle it will never become a Square!!

Got it? Mental patient?

Only you extreme True Believers™ are afraid of death-- you are so much in fear of it, you have invented childish fantasy-delusions.

You call these delusions "faith", and you even try to pretend that this lie-- this "faith" -- is somehow a virtue.

It isn't.

But you are a coward. As are all True Believers™ such as yourself.
