Atheism to Defeat Religion by 2038

Apr 25, 2012 Full story: Psychology Today 23,565

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.

I was infact offering further evidence that your all in your mind super being, has resulted in you becoming nothing other than a hate filled individual.
I don't hate anyone. But that's a common lie that God haters love to tell.

live your life bill - don't hate it. your religion has it wrong.

If indeed you do not hate anyone, then I retract my statement in that matter,,,however, for you to admit that you support or follow a doctrine or belief that talks of non-followers or believers, suffering in an eternal state of pain and suffering merely for the fact they do not follow as you do,is a little odd.
By the way, I am not a god hater, It's just that I do not believe.
If you wish to believe thats fine with me, providing you extend to me the same courtesy to be otherwise.
Tiss odd however the amount of folks that have suffered and died over thousands of years in the name of one god or other.

Thank you. Those who hate others are not Christians. It is forbidden by God. However, God is sovereign and not bound to what He commands for us.

This destruction of a third of the worlds population,, is that to be an even global spread, or localised.

Good question. Since evil encompasses the world I would say 'global', except Israel. Thought provoking.

Theists are largely stupid, dishonest f*cks. They invent, believe and enact evil, making life miserable for the rest of us.

And they do all this while taking no responsibility for their ignorance.

The promise of reward isn't an effective arguing point for Christians like $bill (against people unlike $bill). Those sorts have no way of knowing if the person at the other end of an exchange is or isn't due said reward, not even face-to-face, let alone across the internet.

Thus the cliche >>> “Being a good person isn't enough to getchya into Heaven.”

If $bill's any indication, being a bad person won't getcha into Hell either.

Is $bill truly a “bad” person? Aside from all the fire and brimstone tripe... I dunno.

I've met better Christians though... face-to-face and on Topix.

$bill really needs to examine his method(s) if he expects gain any respect for himself and for his religion.

All he's doing now is driving people away... and that is a good thing.

The irony is almost literally palpable... is it not?

Seems a good idea in the traditions of America

The six month anniversary of the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School will be marked this Friday with private and public events.

The Newtown Interfaith Clergy Association has an event planned for Friday night at Fairfield Hills, where residents and visitors of all ages are invited to gather at the soccer fields at 7:30. The fields were the same location of vigils one week, and then two weeks after 12/14, when hundreds of people bundled in winter clothes, fighting tears and bracing temperatures, and cupping their hands around candles in an attempt to bring light into the dark.

This week’s vigil is being called a gathering, A Community-Wide Gathering For Healing and Hope-Building.

The event will be “a time of prayer, song, community and care,” according to organizers, on the six-month anniversary of 12/14. All are invited to share in a time of remembrance, hope, and healing.

“Members of the community including people representing town, school, and other local organizations including first responders and police” are planning to participate, according to Newtown Congregational Church Senior Pastor Matthew Crebbin. Members of the clergy will also participate.

“We will have representatives from the various churches including our Christian community and Islamic society, Jewish, and other faith traditions” all represented, he said this week.

Special events for Newtown residents have slowed in recent months, but they have continued. There have been fundraisers, concerts, dinners, marches and protests, and countless special events.

Residents have tried to be kind to each other, and others have made a point to wear special wristbands, or pins, or even a limited edition nail polish, in an effort to bond together, find strength, to heal.

Newtown’s clergy association has begun offering monthly interfaith gatherings. Friday, June 14, will be the first vigil, or prayer event, or solemn gathering specifically to mark an anniversary of 12/14 in a few months, however.

“I think we recognize that anniversaries bring up all kinds of feelings and emotions for people. What we recognize is that for some people, they would rather not even acknowledge an anniversary, and for others it’s very important to have something,” said Rev Crebbin.“For the clergy, we recognize that many people are in many different places for people on their journey.

“For some, the grief is still very, very raw. Others may be trying to figure out different ways to transition into what life after December 14 is all about,” he added.“What we’re trying to acknowledge is that we can all be in different places, but we are still a community. We are all on the same journey.”

All are welcome to Friday night’s event. Attendees should bring lawn chairs or blankets for seating.

There will also be an opportunity for those gathered to add messages to banners that will be sent to Oklahoma, to send hope to those affected by last month’s fatal tornadoes.

In the event of rain, the gathering will be in the sanctuary of Newtown Congregational Church, at 14 West Street.

Oh you are 100% spot on! He is doing great job at making Christians look like hateful, seething, miserable creatures who can't wait to lash out at those not like them.

I notice even the other Christians on the board won't go near him with a 20 foot pole.

Is this a direct answer?

Is there a definition of Atheism on which all atheists agree?

Faith is a device of self-delusion, a sleight of hand done with words and emotions founded on any irrational notion that can be dreamed up. Faith is the attempt to coerce truth to surrender to whim. In simple terms, it is trying to breath life into a lie by trying to outshine reality with the beauty of wishes. Faith is the refuge of fools, the ignorant, and the deluded, not of thinking, rational men
Nicely phrased.

And I agree with your analysis.

You prove your hate, with nearly every hate-post.

But that's okay-- we all know the truth: you REALLY love you your DEVIL.

That's why most of your posts are in praise of your devil's powers.

(all imaginary, of course....)
