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.

Muslims and kneegroids are the best proof that there's no god.What kind of twisted god creates such horrible creatures and gives them a human look?

Because he is desperately trying to compare it to a religious system with dogmas and tenets. He wants to change the meaning of the word to fit his narrow works view.

Replacement? WHY? None is needed.

Why can't you define what "atheism is"? "

Again you if cannot understand what is being told to you, why do you even try to understand anything?
It is simple much more so than your religious beliefs.

Did you take a vote on this?
Do most of the Atheists agree with this?
To me is seems like some one explaining Trinity in Simple Plain English!!
There are words and they are English too, but do not make any sense!!
Trinity is not atheism.

Why don't you just claim, that we are trying to explain paper airplanes? It makes exactly as much sense as you looking at the definition of atheism, and seeing Trinity. That is "none", you are a perverted fruit loop.

Do you loons all agree to fuck babies? Is that why it happens? You all voted ahead of time?

No. An atheist is one who believes there are no gods.

No am atheist is one who doesn't belief in a god. Agnostic means you don't have knowledge. The two terms are not mutually exclusive although agnostics try to sell it that way.

How can you demonstrate if a pet does or doesn't believe in a god?

Until you can demonstrate that you are as usual humiliating yourself fatass.

Hey for laughs tell us again how you have your PHD in microbiology but work as a repoman! Or how you made a spot on the steelers but were thrown out because you were too tough! Or was it the bengals? Your story changes so much on that lol!

Oh wait how about your son who is a 7 footer with a 4.0 grade average who is hotly recruited by every major southern college athletics department? Lol! Lol! Lol!

I keep up on recruits and guess what fatass? None of the 6'10" / 7' recruits look like a possible fit for being your you made up son.

Lol!

Oh well at least your lies are entertaining, will you be stealing more Jeff Chase pictures?

Remember Buck, you said you would want the abortion option available for your family members. So best we have it available for all women :)

I did not know that!!

The "Only" atheist countries in the world were Communists and every one knows what they did to the world and to their own people.

No one knows any people who were more brutal to their own people than these Atheists.

Who is talking about replacement?

Atheists?

PS:

And most countries where the "virus" of Atheism is growing faster are the earlier Christian countries.

I do not know if there is any connection between the two.

Here are some recent UK terrorist plots:

The July 7 atrocity saw 52 people killed by four suicide bombers on London's transport network. Since then, there have been a number of other plots - the first coming just two weeks after July 7.

Another group of four bombers had attempted to replicate the earlier attack but their plan failed. They were caught and each jailed for life.

A 2006 plan to blow up aircraft being flown between the UK, America and Canada using liquid explosives which led to 12 people being jailed.

A plot to attack UK and US targets with a 'dirty bomb' and gas-filled limousines that saw al Qaida operative Dhiren Barot sentenced to 30 years in jail in 2006, and seven other men linked to the plot jailed the following year.

Plans to target shopping centres and nightclubs using fertiliser-based explosives that led to five men being jailed for life in 2007.

The attempted murder of Stephen Timms MP, who was stabbed by Roshonara Choudry. The student, who was said to have been inspired by extremist sermons she watched on the internet, was convicted of attempted murder in 2010.

A plan to attack the London Stock Exchange, which saw nine members of a terrorist network later receive sentences of between five and 17 years each in February 2012

the Woolwich incident mirrors a plot which saw a Birmingham man jailed for life in 2008 for plotting to kidnap and kill a British Muslim soldier.

Parviz Khan admitted planning to lure the soldier off the streets with the promise of drugs - then film his beheading.

this is just a sample.

According to M15, there have been a total of 2,291 arrests under the Terrorism Act between September 11, 2001, and 30 September, 2012 and 312 people have been convicted of terrorism-related offences

It is a result of the indoctrination of the religious nonsense. Since all of them start this indoctrination when they are young, it's very difficult to actually break it all. A conflict of such cannot exist forever though, eventually they will crack and either break free of the indoctrination completely, seeing the danger of the delusion and thus knowing we need to reduce it's presence in the species, or they will relapse. Sadly many do relapse and drop back into the delusional world of faeries, goblins, and gods.
A religious nonsense is a religious nonsense, even when billions of men believe in it! A myth is still a myth!
