I can tell you are miserable as an atheist. I am so happy that it never influenced me and anyone I know.
You are simply projecting your miserable hate onto everyone you meet.

I bet you live alone-- and I bet all your pathetic pets have died, for lack of care.

For all the "love" you display for your fellow humans?

Is indistinguishable from HATE.

Buh-bye.

Tell me how you come to that conclusion. It is obviously an original post. Do you not like that I use the buybull in this way? Don't you just love that it can be truthfully used in such a manner? I do.

What are you reacting? That Atheism will replace religion? And that is what I am asking, now a void can replace a space?
Now you will say, humans do not have a soul? Then I will ask what is life?
We will go on having "fun" shall we not?
The religions disappear, and there are no religions left. That is atheism, no religions, no gods, no spell casters, just none of that stuff.

Don't you ever think before posting your answer?
The question was Atheism will replace religion? You replace one theory with another theory, do you not?
Or do you replace a theory with "No theory"?
You replace a law a system with a "better" system or a better law.
How can Atheism which is "nothing" can replace religion?
Atheism is not religion, atheism is not law, it is what was there before religion was brought in.

You are asking that a disease must replace a disease. What disease must you have, if you do not have cancer?

Satan is limited to the same venues, that your gods are. They are nothing but squiggly marks on paper.
Christainity is just one freak show religion that is rejected, all the others are too.

Thank you for proving my point that atheists have joined up with wahhabi thugs against Assad.
Anything for 'progress'....eh?
If that was your point, you could have said so before you claimed that it had been proven true. And btw: I see that you demand the same amount of proof, to your unmade point as you do, to your claims of a god. None!

"I refuse to prove that I exist," says God, "for proof denies faith, and without faith, I am nothing."
"Oh," says man, "but the Babel fish is a dead give-away, isn't it? It proves You exist, and so therefore You don't."
"Oh, I hadn't thought of that," says God, who promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.
"Ah, that was easy," says man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white, and gets killed on the next zebra crossing.

It creates a permanent empty space on head where every one can see that there was hair.

The same is with "Athiesm", it would leave a permanent void in your personality and you would be "just like a talking animal".

These analogies show that how ignorant you are about religions.

You are comparing apples against oranges. A set of beliefs with some physical disabilities.

That shows what type of arguments you people come out with. A drowning man clutching at straws.

This doesn't seem to happen, does it?

In fact, religions are progressing in many countries, at the expense of atheism, still considered by many as highly suspect.

Most people are born in a religion. Atheism is a choice made by some, often raised themselves in a religion. Atheism is just a rebellion.

Have you moved to Bahrain because it if more liberal than Saudi?

What about all the other prophets of God, the ones not living in the Middle East. There are a lot more religions and variety of religions than in that part of the world.

2.

Not a belief in nothing. A belief in reality, as opposed to a belief in a made up supernatural world.
Ans.

1. I am still in Saudi Arabia to the best of my recollection.

Quran made a general statement that God sent prophets of God and His books to many nations.

But it describes only those known to Arabs, because they were the original addresses of the message.

What purpose it would have served for those Arabs to mention obscure names and places, which they know nothing about.

Quran is a book of Guidance, not a book of travel and tourism or of human history.

2. So Atheism is a "Belief in Reality", that is the First Positive coming out of it.

The Universe is real? So how come it came into being?

By itself, by chance?

Let us see how much Athiests believe in "Reality"!!
