I agree that you praying does no harm to me personally. It is more a friendly word to say that speaking to an imaginary friend, does not make any sense. Whilst meditating may give you a sense of comfort, religions can also be psychological damaging. You have to believe in a lot of superstition and nonsense. Many people with religion live in fear that they and their loved ones will end up in hell. Needless to say, this is purely and imaginary fear, with no basis in reality.
Praying is the only part of their religion that does no harm because while they are praying they are not thighing, marrying off children, stoning young girls to death, bombing, whipping and beheading other people.

If you see every thing in Universe and still think that its Creator is imaginary, then you need to get your head examined.

Unsolicited advice is almost always a waste of time. No one here ever asked for your advice. No one here wants it. No one here believes that you even think on a level that would make your advice anything other than laughable. If you think your presence here serves any useful purpose other than as an example of the kind of theist folly that supports the atheist position in ways that even we cannot, you are deluding yourself.
And who asked your advice? Solicited or non-Solicited ?

Several people have asked him for his advice actually. You are nothing more than a clear example of the barbaric nature created by Islam.

Still no comment from you on:-

Is this because you agree with the murder of young girls?

Sadly I think religions will be with us for a long time to come.

No leaders will give up that method of oppressing and control their uneducated masses anytime soon.
(America is the most perfect example. most of your founding fathers were atheists but you cant handle that as a population. Your politicians have to lie because for some reason you don't want a leader unless he's got a magical friend in the sky.
We get the fate we deserve.)

Think for yourselves? No leader wants that!

The long term survival of our species depends on co-operation.
Our world was at a crossroads in the 80's. Thanks to Reagan and Thatcher (boo hiss) we took the path which values money over people rather than the alternative. We cannot go back without global effort.

They have doomed us.

That's funny because I've come to the opposite conclusion. C'est la vie.

Muq has stated that killing even children is acceptable if they are ( causing chaos ) as he put it.

Come on MUQ,you call everyone insane who doesn't believe in God.But you haven't produced any evidence here that could plausibly explain that God exists.
But your rather coming up with childish posts like this.
Explain me Why physical laws cannot be governed on their own?

I don't believe they were atheists most of them were Deists and Mason's. Thomas Paine could be the exception, But he was not a founding father.

“Of all the systems of religion that ever were invented, there is no more derogatory to the Almighty, more unedifying to man, more repugnant to reason, and more contradictory to itself than this thing called Christianity”

“That God cannot lie, is no advantage to your argument, because it is no proof that priests can not, or that the Bible does not”

“There are matters in the Bible, said to be done by the express commandment of God, that are shocking to humanity and to every idea we have of moral justice”

“The whole religious complexion of the modern world is due to the absence from Jerusalem of a lunatic asylum.”

“Is it not a species of blasphemy to call the New Testament revealed religion, when we see in it such contradictions and absurdities”
Thomas Paine

Peace on earth?
Not as long as organized religion exists.

If you are purely arguing in favour of Deism, the belief in a "creator", without the need for religions, religious dogma, holy books and miracles, then I am ok with that. However a personal God, a prayer answering one which inspires prophets is very unlikely. Given that on a daily basis we see in the news horrific things like murders, terrorism, earthquakes etc, and God is inactive, and does nothing whilst bad things happen to good people.

Hey atheists,you know that inner thought inside of you that tells you something you are about to do is wrong and you shouldnt do it.That is your GOD conscious that almighty God put in you. its called a spirit. God puts this spirit in everybody. every time you go against your GOD conscious you drift farther and farther away from GOD. finally you will one day call yourself an atheist because you lost your spirit and have no conscious.
