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.

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.

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?

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

Speaking of question:-

Why do you support the abuse, rape and murder of little girls?

Are you just going to ignore me or just run away like the coward you are?

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

MUQ, your definition of "positive" here beggars belief! Analogies you provided are absurd. Law and order? Go and advice Boko Harram in Nigeria! You friend Zakir Naik has just visited Nigeria and I bet it is the last thing he did! Foundation on lies like "Adam, etc " fairy tales are not worth preserving.
Who is being deviously childish? OH! MUQ!

That's funny... coming from a theist... about atheists.

Every last bit of is TOP GRADE irony.

Can't you see? >>> We feel pretty much same way about religion. Almost exactly the same way.

Just so ya know!

Without religious superstitions atheism is as useful a term as apixie-ism, believing in the existance of gods and pixies being about equally sensible.

Humanity is just a few billion people travelling through space-time and beginning to learn about our enviroment and origins. Instead of looking backwards, arguing about which is the 'correct god and religion', humanity needs to abandon the last bastion of superstition (i.e religions) and focus on where we're going.

If he does not believe in gods, what he believes in? That is a Trillion Dollar Question?
