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.

You can criticise about skyscrapers how they are made.
You can criticise Jet Engines about "what hell of a noise they make"?
You can criticise about any thing and every thing in the world...
But if you are unable to make any thing better than what they are made, your criticism has no value.
PS:
To have a "bad quality product" in the market, when better quality products are available is exempt from this list.
The question is about the idea and the way it is to be done and how reliable it is.
To compare any man made gadget or design against what is created by God is sheer madness and every one knows it.

Want to put your wits against the wit of Creator of Universe?
When you are capable of moving s planet of the size of Sun, then you come up and post.
And there are planets Billions of times bigger than our sun in the Cosmos!!
And the same God moves electrons around the nucleus and even electron has a structure!!
From lowest to biggest, He controls everything.
I never knew , you people would be "so thick" to put your "achievements" before the Creator of this Universe.
That is what happens when you start "believing" in some thing as stupid as Atheism!!
There is nothing to believe in atheism, you idiot. And you are proof of there being no god. If a true god knew what you freaking perverted loons do to newborns, infants and toddler children, the whole of Islam would have been fire-bombed about 10 seconds after the first one of you thighed a baby.
So far no god has moved even so much as the first molecule.

Most of us don’t even know what Sharia law is other than perhaps a more rigid and literal sense of the law for Muslim countries. Here are just a few facts taken from Sharia law.

Americanthinker.com Gives us the 10 facts taken straight from sharia law and backed up by Muslim Holy Books.

They back up their statements referencing all kinds of scriptures from the Quran.

10. Islam commands that drinkers and gamblers should be whipped.
9. Islam allows husbands to hit their wives even if the husbands merely fear highhandedness in their wives.
8. Islam allows an injured plaintiff to exact legal revenge—physical eye for physical eye.
7. Islam commands that a male and female thief must have a hand cut off.
6. Islam commands that Highway robbers should be crucified or mutilated.
5. Islam commands that homosexuals must be executed.
4. Islam orders unmarried fornicators to be whipped and adulterers to be stoned to death.
3. Islam orders death for Muslim and possible death for non—Muslim critics of Muhammad and the Quran and even sharia itself.
2. Islam orders apostates to be killed.
1. Islam commands offensive and aggressive and unjust jihad.

Our legal system has been based on a belief in the value of human life, worth under another alleged God and this prophets 10 commandments.

Someone committing a sin in someone else’s eyes is not a death sentence or crime.

We have a system, based on acknowledging everyone’s human rights not ancient traditions and opinions representing oppression against certain questionable behaviors or even against women in general!

In 1998, Omar Ahmad, co-founder of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, told newspapers,“Islam isn't in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant.
The Quran should be the highest authority in America.”

He is saying that Islam should rule everything in America. We look on Islam as a religion, with all the rights guaranteed to religion in this nation.

However, Islam is a total package — executive, legislative, judicial, military, economic, educational, family, moral.

It encompasses all aspects of life and not just the spiritual.

When it begins to dawn on us that this is a fact, we will look on Islam in a different light.

We will block every attempt to permit its intrusion into our government.

Can you try that again in English?

93% of scientists do not believe in a personal god.... Which as nothing to do with his post whatsoever.

You are unable to understand the posts here right? That's the only explanation for your unrelated way off topic answers.... Which are poorly worded and reused again and again.

Which means?

That approximately 7% of scientists do believe in some sort of god.

And to this day, most scientists cannot explain why that number is so high....

If there is "NOTHING" to believe in Atheism, then how it would replace anything?

How can avoid fill the space?

Did you think about that, Idiot?

I never thought it would be so fun for ask people "How to define atheism"!!

You should say One whom we cannot see with our eyes. That would be more honest.

Then can we say "Only those things exist which we can see from our eyes"? Can you say that?

The presence of Universe, which we can see is a "Living Proof " that their Creator exists and is "very much present".

Our Disability to see Him, is our fault, not His.

There is no possibility of an all powerful compassionate god, because we have evidence of avoidable suffering.

You worship out of fear.

I suspect it is more a case of "give me a boy under 7.." He'd be just as rabid a Zionist if his father had been one. He cannot conceive of a world free from religion, or even comprehend that point of view.

Arguably one could say science is silent on atheism, yet I think science and education seriously undermine these ancient religions, as well as newer fads like Scientology & Mormonism. All-inclusive Quakers and non-superstitious Unitarians create few problems as they welcome non-believers and respect history and science. Some supporters of Abrahamic religions try hard to pervert the lessons of history (equating atheism to oppressive governments) & distort science (ID/Creationism) to try to provide props for their irrational 'spiritual beliefs'.

Give Muck a boy under 7 and some lube, more like.
I'm not too bothered about the label Atheist. I've utilised the scientific method to get from being brought up a christian to a position of not believing, so I guess I'm a rational sceptic.

Muck however, is just a disgusting paedophile apologist.

If you think clearly, you cannot tell anything about a cause (designer), through the effects (nature). If anything at all, nature would indicate the existence of an impersonal Deity who is indifferent to human beings. Alternatively the universe is created solely by natural causes, which is the sensible conclusion given total lack of evidence of any gods.
