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.

Why do you refer to yourself in the 3rd person?
I am convinced you are a Seinfeld fanatic, you are 'Jimmy' who tried to pick up 'Elaine'

The only belief you have demonstrated so far is a hatred of God.

Reason Personified wrote: Intellectual and or rational; discussion is not something you would recognize, so we are reduced to endlessly attempting to educate you. Atheist is simply not theist, and it is you who is,(not us) making a big deal about it, and trying to expand it to cover what you need it to be.
Educate me? More like hopelessly failing in trying to indoctrinate me and everyone else for that matter. You cannot educate people into 'nothing'.....unless youre a nihilist of some sort.

Siro wrote: All you Topix atheists of Club Maltheist do is whine about God, if you did not then you would have nothing to post about.
Reason Personified wrote: That is not accurate at all, but then you would be the last to know. That your silly theist club might be packed full of atheist, would imply that they are all probably clergy who are fearful of gainful employment. Once the religitard leaders actually read the holy books they quickly become atheist, but leaving a situation where the money doesn't have to be earned, plus power and prestige are heady flowers too, they choose to keep leading you lot by the nose.
What? In the same way dawkins and co. live off government grants and donations from stooges like you?

Siro wrote: You declare yourself to be an atheist or 'without God', that is your choice but you recognise something that you want no association with.
Reason Personified wrote: You are really insistent about proclaiming what I claim myself to be, but if you had my input, you might get some of it right. I am atheist, as in "not theist". I am also non-believer, as in not deluded by any myth-god tales. I have no qualms about interacting with the religitard faction, for everyone of the posts like yours, which are filled with lies and hatred, gives me and others like me a chance to open the dirty book and point out the filth. It's too late for you, but there are lurkers who have doubts, and it is for them, that I post.
You proclaim yourself as being 'not theist' then add you are a 'non-believer' as if these 2 terms were exclusive from each other.
Maybe in your mind they are........

So does Boob of QF respond directly to you yet?

Doesnt matter, youre a boob anyway.

Perhaps there is a god, but it will favour non-believers and other moderates.

You can't disprove that, and neither can I.

<quoted text>Look around you. That is in every town, every city, there is hunger and poverty everywhere, the answer is not in a holy book nor is it in any church.
For almost my entire life (yes, even in my childhood) I have been active in trying to help those less fortunate, For years I operated a soup kitchen (free of dogma), cooked in another (prayers mandatory), which was the reason I started and funded one myself, delivered food, water and clothing in emergency situations (fire and storms). I took in and raised 4 abandoned children along with my own, and I can tell you, this life is beautiful.
The possibilities, the endless chances to reinvent your life, to step outside of your own past, begin anew, are real. Even with disease and terminal illness, we humans can look for the possibility of cures, we can live in the moment, making as much as we can of the too short days left. We can pass on who we are in music, art and in the written word. Nothing is guaranteed, but for one brief bit of life that we have, we can make it a brilliantly beautiful and shining moment, by something as simple as sharing a smile.
The answers to poverty can be as simple as just getting tired of being broke. I have seen this work, with just a family doing without, then picking up cans, and then trash, and then starting their own trash clean up business, and then moving into landscaping. Today they live well, and they pass on these very simple words, " When you really get tired of being broke, get up and do something about it.".
But wait folks.....it gets better!!!!

<quoted text>How about you try doing what I did? I died, I bled to death, and there was nothing there. Emergency room personal, refused to give up on me, and after I was dead, a IV line was started in my foot. Which with that and the paddles, things got going again.
I have spent a large part of my adult years as a first responder, I've seen death much more often than I am comfortable with. I've seen people fight it, I've seen people accept it. I've seen people come back from it, and the truth is if they were expecting blue spaceships to carry them to Valhalla, then it would be blue spaceships, that they claimed to have seen, and never does one who is expecting Allah, see Jesus, nor does one who is expecting Poseidon, get to see Pele. The god you are taught that you will see, is who you will imagine, and when you are dead .... the imagining stops.
The people on this planet who will trick you into believing whatever it is, that will benefit them, are too many to count, and you are far from the only one who has been righteously snookered.

*You will find it all true, verifiable and consistent. And every last bit of it, you would applaud, if it had been done by any theist, including those worshipping little blue gods, gods with too many arms, and gods who require you to mug people. The magic word that would allow this stupidity from you, is "theist". Well guess what, myself and every living human child who is not yet indoctrinated are atheist!

Now that you've started, have fun, get to know the real me. You are going to like me, in spite of yourself. You only have 13,275 more left to repost, and since it's my birthday week I am going to enjoy the heck out of this.

(Hey EW, it's been a year, since you decided I was on my last legs, a dead woman walking. LOL)
* we can repost this again next year

I am glad you caught that. Imagine a place that would charge a prayer, a sermon, or even a bowed head as price for a hungry man's meal. And yes, at the Club Mal-theist Soup Kitchen they do have requirements that are far beyond the only one that should be required, and that should be the need of food.

I, as an atheist know, what these Club Mal-theist god-pushers do not seem to know. The hungry will eat and leave, the lonely will eat and stay to talk, the spiritually needy will reach out, for that theological comforting crutch. The religitard flock have need to make every hungry mouth a route by which they may shovel their god manure.

And FYI, I have never been to the Islam, board, forum or threads

And here we see word games in play...
Notice how the poster twists a positive negative claim. The negative claim is poorly worded but that's all that's needed to wrench the discussion away from the positive claim - there is a god.
Is this supposed to be proof that god does exist?
The burden of proof is upon those who claim that god exists.
[/Quote/]
For all the thousands of gods there was never a proof possible. Why should there be now such a silly thing possible?
