Atheism to Defeat Religion by 2038

Apr 25, 2012 Read more: Psychology Today 23,565

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.

US hegemony and the 'only superpower' will soon be old-hat. People should be asking how we cooperate better and where we all go from here. Zionism, Islamism,- any other religious division or dogma can only impede us.
Sadly, America has its own brand of national narrative, and far too many people buy into it.

The madness that was Iraq War, listen from the Horse' Mouth Now Part- 5

Update: The Iraq War Ledger

A Look at the War’s Human, Financial, and Strategic Costs

Matthew Duss and Peter Juul December 2011

I. Diverted resources and attention from Afghanistan. Rather than stay and finish the job in Afghanistan as promised, the Bush administration turned its focus to Iraq beginning in 2002, in preparation for the 2003 invasion.

J. Special Forces specializing in regional languages were diverted from Afghanistan to Iraq, and Predator drones were sent to support the war in Iraq instead of the hunt for Al Qaeda in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

K. Stifled democracy reform. While the Arab Awakening of 2011 is a potentially positive development, there’s no evidence that the Iraq war contributed to this in any positive way.

L. A 2010 RAND study concluded that, rather than becoming a beacon of democracy, the Iraq war hobbled the cause of political reform in the Middle East.

M. The report stated that “Iraq’s instability has become a convenient scarecrow neighboring regimes can use to delay
political reform by asserting that democratization inevitably leads to insecurity.”

N. Rather than supporting democratic forces in neighboring Syria, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al- Maliki has repeatedly voiced support for Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad.

O. Fueled sectarianism in region. The invasion of Iraq replaced a prominent Sunni Arab State with one largely controlled by Iraq’s Arab Shia majority.

P. While the end of the oppression of
Iraq’s Shia majority is a positive thing, this shift has exacerbated regional tensions between Shia and Sunni, including in Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Lebanon, and Bahrain (where the U.S Fifth Fleet is based).

Q. Lingering disputes in Iraq between Sunni and Shia Arabs, Kurds, and
Turkmen also continue to invite exploitation by both state and non-state actors.

Pat Robertson, American evangelist, said just the other day that the reason Africans experience miracles and Americans don't is that Africans are "simple" people, and God likes simple people. Americans have too much education, so God doesn't like them as much.
Jeez.
Well, I do believe religious charlatans like Robertson prefer simple people. It is much easier to con the rubes.
Do not forget Iron Chariots-- bible-god is deathly afraid of Iron Chariots-- the bible specifically states bible-god is easily defeated by Iron Chariots.

In Africa, there are few cars in much of the poorer areas.

Cars are basically made of iron/steel-- and they do function much as chariots do.

So it's pretty clear here: driving iron cars is why god cannot manage to make any miracles in the First World countries.

Obviously, iron interferes with bible-god's magical voice .....

I agree while the money would be way to easy I don't think I could live with myself purposely misleading people and taking their cash like that. It takes a special kind of low life to do that like religious leaders, ID proponents and apologetics like Ray Comfort and William Shame Craig.

Hell, you could write a computer program, that would randomly generate the text for creationist' books....

... and those'd sell just as well as anything else.

In fact, the more wild the claim, the better it'll sell...

... meh.

Sometimes I wish I didn't have a strong sense of ethics...

... with a computer program, we could turn out one creationist book per year, and make millions...

I agree-- the Iraq war of Bush-Aggression is madness.

But you still haven't explained why your Moohumud was an illiterate pedophile.

Why?

That's madness to a whole new level...

If Iraq war was a madness, then why happened to GWB the Great and his cronies?

They all are enjoying luxurious retired life at the cost of Country whom they cheated and swindled.

What type of democracy is this? No accountability?

Answer this first and then we will discuss about prophet Mohammad.

Well sadly he was able to hide behind his cronies in congress and the senate and escape prosecution. Obama's people have said that while Bush made several errors in judgement and was too eager to go to Iraq he did have documents backing up his claims be they ever so flimsy. Had he outright lied Obama would have him in a courtroom tomorrow.

So why do you support Muslim child brides?

Hmmm?

That is 1000 times worse than anything Bushy did-- your entire religion is based on the actions of a rapist...!!

That is messed up.

And remember, my house is held together by iron nails rather than wooden pegs. That's probably the reason that I never see Jesus in moldy cheese or anything like that. No miracles here.

This is democracy in a nutshell for you. Every one defending their cronies.

No responsibility for bashing up a country and causing up to a million death......killing and injuring thousands of his own country's soldiers and spending billions of dollars of country's money for his "personal revenge".

And mighty USA and its army are standing by, so that this crook of first water enjoys his "hard earned" retirement.

All this is a permanent black mark on the Democratic form of Govt. that you people have.

He was not "unlected", he won the re-election and if US laws permitted he would have won for the third time and fourth time also.

There are still millions in US who think he was the "best thing that US had as a President" Some one who could look Osama in the eyes and make him wilt!!

Our prophet started his mission "as a single man"....in a country where no one believed in Islam.

And with constant struggle of 23 years, he was successful to see the Entire Arabia as a Muslim.

The total human casualties in this great transformation were less that even 1000, a feat which was never achieved before and never shall be repeated before.

He had the pleasure to see more than 125,000 of his dedicated followers performing last pilgrimage with him.

What more a cooling sign can one expect. He is revered and respected more than their lives by billions of Muslims all round the globe.

His name is sung five times each day from the minarets of millions of mosques.

Which other human has or can achieve more respect, love and reverence than him.

Maggots like you speak bad words about him and they come back on your own faces.

His name is revered by the God Almighty and He and His angels send their blessings and salutations to him, every instant.

Did you see his approval numbers at the end of his second term? He is still one of the most despised people in America.

Now stop avoiding the questions asked of you like a coward. Why do you support Muslim child brides?

What being the "most despised person" in USA done for him?

he is still enjoying his retirement with entire USA Govt and army and airforce and navy to protect him.

Is this how you people reward cheat and swindlers and crooks of the First water?

I did not know that your democratic system has no ways to punish such crooks, that might be the reason, every crook and cheat and swindlers wants to run for elected positions in senate and lower house.

No accountability and abundant ways to screw the poor tax payers.

If this is democracy, then what else is swindling?

Your question was correctly and completely answered. Your Saudi King holds Bush's hand and kisses him on the cheek. Your king likes him more than any American.

Again your question was answered so stop trying to change the subject. Why do you approve of the barbaric act of Muslim child brides?
