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.

If I hated you I wouldn't tell you you are going to Hell. I'd just let you go.
Why [would you let me go]?

For what reason [would you hate me]?

For calling you a hypocrite?

Really?

That's really the only assertion I've made about you where one should be aware, before hand,to the offensiveness inherent in one's comments/posts.

(btw... I was aware)

The problem for you...

...is that...

It's true.

Something else? Another reason?

Question:

Would you consider it as "offensive"... in any way... even just a little?... if I said to you, "Go to Hell!"..?

If I said it for no real reason? That is to say... nothing that should warrant a punishment that extreme?

You aren't telling me TO GO to Hell...

You're telling me I AM GOING to Hell.

For no real reason (that I'm aware of).

The worst possible thing person A could say to person B... that is, if person A is a Christian.

And you said it and you are.

Reason? Can you give me something specific?

Nope! Yes?

...so...

(((Phuck YOU!)))

I mean that in the nicest possible way!

Got nuttin' but "luv" 4 ya!

Only trying to help.

I will if you let me.

This is not a definition of Athiesm, it is what they deny.
It has also been told to you dozens of times.
A negation is not the definition of any thing, it should also contain some Positive statements also.
Like we Muslims say "There is no deity (worth worshipping)" This is negation part, if we stop at it, it will be no message at all (Like you atheists)....then we affirm "Except Allah"!!
And we further add "And Mohammad is His Messenger"!!
This is what I will call a complete definition.
Just saying there is no God, there is no God is half the message, where is the other half?
What do athiests believe in?

You're too stupid to understand what atheism is and hence judge it.

BTW...

I don't believe you hate me.

"Hate" is a pretty strong word.

I could be wrong.

Is this a direct answer?
Is there a definition of Atheism on which all atheists agree?
The direct answers were in the post, and you could not read it as it was written. The answers to this post, you have gotten many times, and you have not been able to understand them either. You are deficient in the skills that it would take for you to understand the answers.

Atheism is the lack of a theistic "ism".

Atheist do not have a club, that we join to become atheist. We were born atheist, as all people are. Some of us were indoctrinated, some weren't. Those who were and rejected those god claims returned to being atheist, which is the natural and correct state of mankind.

Good question. Since evil encompasses the world I would say 'global', except Israel. Thought provoking.
1.Would that annihilation of one third of the worlds population fall within a certain age group ?

2. Why the exception for Israel, would the toll be higher or lower there ?

You are an idiot. There is no message.
You are an idiot in a club, when you joined the club, you became a religitard idiot.

If an atheist joined an atheist club it would not be to become an atheist, that person is already an atheist, that means that there is no god god claim that he brings with him.

Every human being is born atheist, to become a theist they have to be indoctrinated. It is how you became Muslamic.

Atheist believe in many things, but we mostly believe in things that are real, but there are no rules, and there are no beliefs, in being an atheist.

Christholes say when Armageddon strikes the Jews in Israel who fall to their feet at Christians and beg for conversion will be saved. The rest die.

I am surprised at the lack of understanding of all these Super Brains who call them selves Atheists.

The topic of thread is "Atheism will replace religions by 2038".

How something which only has a negative definition, would replace some thing positive?

How there is no God will replace belief in God?

How can a "No positive definition" will replace "Positive definition"?

How can Vacuum replace any space?

Can anarchy replace Law and Order?

I am amazed at the childish answers I am getting to my basic questions.!!

so then you support terrorism.
God sounds more like a serial killer than a terrorist. Unlike most serial killers, he supposedly has the power to harm the whole universe(according to Godbots) The reason being that terrorists usually have some objective in mind, whereas serial killers kill for pure fun. The God of the bible kills for the latter reason.
According to the story of the Exodus, God ordered Moses to lead the Jews out of slavery, but he hardens the heart of Pharoah against them. Only some type of deranged maniac would do something like that.
According to the bible, women are forever condemned to go through a painful pregnancy, because of the sin of one woman.
According to the buybull, god kills the kids of Job, so that he could show the devil how loyal Job is. According to the bible, God orders Abraham to kill his son, then waits to the last minute to give a reprieve. This fact makes God more compatible to Nero, Caligula, and Ivan the Terrible, than to Osama Bin Laden.
I just read a story of one serial killer who claimed that he was targeting all the bad women, but proceeded to target women of good character as well, showing that he just hated women over all. The same could be said of the xtian God(assuming he is real, which we know he is not) AS the bible states, God is the creator of good and evil. So there is no way we can be on his good or bad side.

Atheism is already in the process of replacing religion. Slowly, people are starting to throw away old age superstitions in place of real facts.

MUQ is trying to tell us that religion is necessary for human morals/lifestyles and his belief faith is useful in keeping all in order. However, many muslims rely on "Allah is all merciful when deviating from "rules". MUQ fails to understand that secualr governance via modern laws based on thoughtful human endeavour are more effective in promoting civilized and progressive actions.

How come 99% atheists I meet are far better lot than most who are deep into a religion dogma?

MUQ's alloting of the attributes of a religion to Atheism is patently wrong and he knows it. I believe he jist cannot get off the horse or his livlihood depends on it.

However, I met a couple of atheists who viewed atheism as a "church" of a sort. Atheism is a thoughtful concusion of those wholooked for evidence of God as propagated by religions and failed to detect it. When I told few atheists that one cannot close book on GOD completely since we do not know all mystries of everything existing (including life and striving of biological and physical life) they agreed that it is right to say that "probably there is no GOD". Hence amongst atheists there are few who are not in "no GOD" camp. What 100% Atheists agree upon is that all religions are of human construct beyond doubt.

NB: Conceptual GOD then cannot be of any form, gender, etc that we human can ever envisage. Religions got it wrong. Humans evolved believing and hence belief in religion is healthy for human psychology of human indivuduals. MUQ calls his belief as "truth" and that sort of propaganda and belief is harmful to humans and their well being.
