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.

Ans.
01. There is no one who will awake the one who “pretends” to be sleeping. So I do not know what you will call as “convincing” arguments.
02. What is wrong in believing that “every thing” should have a beginning? Did you find any thing which did not have a beginning?
03. And it is also logical that God be above “everything”, if He also has a beginning, then He is not God, there was some one before Him?
So it is only God which has no beginning and no end. Everything else has a beginning and shall have an end too.
04. Please tell me how that Cosmic energy came into being and did it make all those laws itself? This is much more unreasonable and illogical than the concept of God.
05. All major religions were started by prophets of God, they got revelation from God. None of them was God or had divine powers.
06. If you accuse them of being hypocrites, why should you yourself be not hypocrite? What is your proof that you are not hypocrite?
So everything has a beginning,right?
And your God has no beginning.
That means God is an imaginary.....:D
Please explain if I am wrong and do not start complaining that I am being the prejudging the things.If one excludes God from his own perception of existences,then they have to give enough proof that how such is possible.
I don't know how cosmic energy came into existence.So,I can't say if they really have been there without any beginning.That was just an analogous argument against yours and not a theory that I wanted to profess here.
Why do you think I am an hypocrite?I am not selling any theory without proof.
Secondly,Why do you think physics laws are governed by some entity and not on their own?What is illogical in that to say physics laws are not governed by some 'supernatural' entity?
Your prophets were hypocrites for sure.Otherwise they would have given sufficient proofs that they received messages from God.
And don't you believe that they performed miracles that defied laws of physics?
Eg: Splitting of moon.
Please explain.

So news coming out on the Boston terror bombers and here's a big surprise! They are indeed Islamic terrorists from Chechnya killing in the name of Allah!

All this terrorism all this killing of innocents in the name of God. One of these two brothers is already dead he blew himself up it seems and the other is on the run like the sniveling worm he is. What do you think Muq? Will he commit suicide or face his charges like a man?

Neat that atheists are as prejudiced as the general public?

But never dare make fun of atheists as they are so serious about their agnostic religion
....just observing in fun.

I am not ethnically Jewish but they come closer to my beliefs than any other established religion, I was raised Christian although my family was not religious. I do believe as Christians do, that the Messiah is God, I also believe in reincarnation as do Buddhists, Elijah, David, Gabriel, and Michael have all been reincarnated.

How do you explain near death experience, they're all alike. And what happens to the energy in your body when you die? Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only change form. When we die, we lose weight and heat. Heat is a form of energy.

If someone kills himself over a possibly a nonexistent dream then that seems to be his fault. It's a shame how much stupid people can get to the point they would die for anything
People die for a whole host of reasons.

In war, most people die for their war-buddies in the same squad or platoon-- rarely because they feel political.

In families, you will frequently see siblings die for each other or for their parents, and vice-versa. Family ties can be very strong motivators.

Sadly, in religion, you all too often see victims dying for the leaders, who sit amidst luxury-- robbing the poor, sending the foolish to their needless deaths--so that the leadership can gather even more luxury.

This is not limited to the middle east, either... you can see exactly this, here in the USA, under the guise of Genuine Christianity™

How often do old people, on limited income, send dollars they can ill afford to spare, to rich con-men like Pat Robertson?

Too often.
