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.

Religion = superstition and only fools fool themselves.
Religion is just superstition and the more people get educated, the less are religions believable!

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.
In capitalism peace is a stranger. In the nuclear age the humann race will come to an end!

If you see every thing in Universe and still think that its Creator is imaginary, then you need to get your head examined.
Some thing is seriously wrong with you!!
Of course there was never such a thing as a creator!

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.
Not even a single god was ever existing at all

How did earth get created without a God, dust CANNOT!!!! create itself, rocks cannot create itself and chemicals cannot create itself to create earth. That's perfect evidence, and I'll like to see you disprove it.

god gave man free will, this is why we see all those things like murder and terrorism. For god to act on anyone thing he would have to act on all things, thus take away free will...but god has faith in man to do the right thing and man has faith in god. The problem is not with god but with man..man does what he wants then blames god is a man that has lowered himself.

After you have studied Physics, Math, Astrophysics and Astronomy for a couple years you will understand.

Until then sit back relax and learn. In the mean time shut up and keep your worthless opinions to yourself.

So ... you assume, fallaciously, that everything must be created. Tell me, is gravity created or the result of mass?

Thinking is not your best thing, is it?

That's okay. In Genuine Christianity™, thinking is not only NOT required?

Thinking is actually a >>bad<< thing, if you are a Genuine Christian™.

You'll make an excellent one, I predict.

To be "Genuine Christian™" one must not think.

Correct.

Question: what happens when a Genuine Christian™ learns how to think for him/her self?

Answer: they become an atheist... if they keep the thinking going, that is.

No, he never denies it, but he is more than happy to label me as mental for outing his perversions.

The babies cannot all survive these assults, he knows this and we know this. He knows that it is wrong or else he would defend it loud and proud. He also knows that the sexual mutiliation of girls is wrong, but he and his insecure fellow losers choose to over rule Allah's design, and implement thier own.

Imagine they use the girls sexually from birth, and when she is around six years old is when they begin slicing away the girl's flesh, so as a sex toy she can respond to thier sexual assults, as a wife she cannot.

He has said child brides are approved and blessed by Allah as long as they have had their first menstruation or the age of 15 at the latest.

Why do you think laws are necessarily created?
I think you are comparing physical laws with the judicial laws of different countries.
Physical laws are facts as well as abstract concepts.I don't think they need any creator.You have to answer me why such abstract concepts need a creator?
Though they control nature and matter(tangible ones),they themselves are not palpable or tangible.
And of course these abstract laws are not a result of contemplation of any human mind or God.If God has created these physical laws then definitely universe must have been having a mental aspect.Otherwise if one is to consider it rationally,it couldn't have been possible for him to establish these laws of universe.However,there is no such proof that universe having a mental aspect.We have been knowing it in terms of physical existence but not the one I said.(this is just my opinion.Don't become whiny that I am answering my own question.I want to hear your part what do you think of it).
Let's consider different legal systems and laws of countries.They all are ideas,right?Our governments frame these ideas in their minds and pass it onto people's minds.This is how we know them ,right?
This also proves the obvious fact that if there is no mental aspect of human beings,we cannot share ideas,right?
Let's say God has designed universe and framed those physical laws,that means God is telling matters to follow them,right?
Doesn't this mean that earth,sun,in fact,every atom of universe has a mental aspect?.Is it true? No.(if you feel yes,explain me)
This is from my side.
Now I want to hear it from your side
Explain me why creator must have been there for physical laws?
Again you are muddling the basis issue by raising all those unnecessary discussion.

You should stay focused at the main issue and should not diverge.

If the Physical laws were not "Created" then did they "Evolved"?

Can these laws create themselves or just came by chance?

A nice story. Except the prophets all teach different and contradictory things.
To take an example, I was watching this morning NHK World, on satellite, the Japanese new channel.
There was an interesting documentary on Zen Buddhism. There was a number of religious practices on show, including statues of Buddha, praying for ancestors, meditating for enlightenment, monks collecting alms, praying sutras to expel bad spirits. There is no worship of one God of Abraham here. This religion seems very foreign and wholly different to the Abrahamic religions popular in the West and Middle East. What is your explanation?
Ask these follows are they following Buddha?

Did Buddha made a statue of him and asked his followers to kneel before it and worship it?

Who did it?

Ask the same people and then why they call themselves Buddhists when they do not follow Buddha?

PS:

And what I said about Buddhists, is true for most other religions. Christians do not follow Jesus.

Hindus do not follow their Vedas etc.

People who mostly follow their scriptures are Jews and Muslims.

But Jews have confined themselves into a racism and do not preach and propagate their religions to other people.

It is Muslims who follow the example of their prophet and preach and propagate their religion to every part of the world.

And every nation, race, language and ethnic group is welcome into this house of Universal Brotherhood, the biggest Non Racial organization you would find in the world, even in our present times.

I am not boasting. It is true.
