I guess now this means you will never ask for proof again?
I guess now this means you will enjoy your atheism and be kind and sweet?
Nahhhh, you don't have enough faith in your claim.
I guess this means that since your faith is so complete and fulfilling you won't be visiting any more discussions about atheism again?

Nahhhh, you don't have enough faith in your god.

Your belief/FAITH is that there is no God. It is indeed FAITH.
Um...no, its really not.

But if your faith is so weak that you feel that everyone else must have some sort of faith just so you can feel better...have a ball.

<quoted text>To explain to MUQ how the absence of theism, does not mean that atheism has something that he cannot perceive nor understand. The religion/god belief is simply gone, as with the buildings.
Believes are gone, but replaced with what?

How can a vacuum replace any thing?

Come on, the topic is Atheism will "Replace" religion?

Do you know what is "replacement"?

I thought, people will come up with all sorts of good ideas, and fresh ideas that Atheists believe in.

But I am amazed at this "No Answer" sort of thing!!

Oh, DollarsBill-- we can see your hate from way over here.
It's the same hate you always had.
Did your DollarsBill account get BANNED? Again?
Pity to be you-- so full of hate.
I bet you are REALLY mad at the US Constitution which FORBIDS you from burning atheists at the stake....
... just like your CHRISTIANS ANCESTORS did.
He just really needed a pat on the back, so he did what they all do, he created one.

When you don't have a cancer, what disease do you have instead?

And yes, the truth amazes you, because you are trained to be stupid.

If you don't have the measles, what disease do you replace them with?

If you do not have diarrhea, what intestinal ailment do you replace it with?

Tell me what ailment you must have when you don't have one?

That is what you are asking us to do. You are demanding we tell you what disease we do have when we don't have your disease.

A vaccum is what we all have. You choose to fill it with your personal delusion with no proof and shout and scream when people ask you for evidence.

Like an ignorant defeated child, who knows he is lying.

Don't be so stupid. Atheism means nothing about the other 'gods'. You just throw that in as a diversion tactic. Those 'gods' have no power. My God does. He will be the One that you will knee walk up to begging for mercy at your dreaded Judgement.
We all know you believe in our God, the only God. You just created a title for yourself to create the illusion that if you claim He doesn't exist enough, that He will go away.
You fail.
If your god made everything, god made atheists too

Why did god make atheists? and why did he make them evil?

The fact is that your god is not all powerful at all - he can't make me a believer!

Why would I believe in made up rubbish anyway?

Your anaology is very wrong, comparing beliefs with physical things, it is like comparing apples against oranges. And this is what I observe from your Super Brains, just jumping here and there to get any foot hold, but even then your logic fails.

The body is healthy and without any disease to start with.

These disease attack the body and make their presence there, which have to be cured and body restored to its original state.

Human mind and human conscious has a "Built-in" recognition of God, which is present in every human child. This is the "pure status".

Now you atheists (like a disease attacking a pure human soul) want to scratch out that feeling and replace it with nothing!!

How it is possible and how no belief will replace belief?

Good point. He reminds me of a certain former Beatles member who is now in Hell because his name was not written in the Lambs book of Life.
"Imagine" is a song well suited for atheists. That's all they got.
Are you that scared of punishment that you cannot say his name.
Say it, John Lennon, it's easy if you try, because there is no hell below you and above is only sky.

Again use of a misconstrued analogy (re: "vacuum")as if a stock room space has to be filled with something anyhow! OH! MUQ!
NB: I suppose the use of word "replacement" by a poster prompted MUQ, who uses word "logic" frequently, to respond absurdly.

Funny how quick you are to lie. First thing athetards do is blame God for everything . How can a God you claim does not exist do something bad?
When have I ever blamed any of the imaginary gods for anything?

You're preaching Satanism.
"Jesus (Lucifer)"
Glad I'm not in your shoes.
"a Child is born" "Mighty God"
Isaiah 9:6-7 (NKJV)
6 For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 7 Of the increase of His government and peace There will be no end, Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, To order it and establish it with judgment and justice From that time forward, even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
The problem is Jesus never fulfilled that, he was not called any of those names. He said "I am not come to bring peace, but a sword". The Messiah will assume world government in the flesh and will return shortly after death and reclaim that throne forever. If Jesus was the son, why is he called "Everlasting father"?
