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.

This wasn't asked of you spambot. Saudi Arabia is high on the list of gay porn online viewerships, Islamic Pakistan being number 1.

The universe was formed by natural processes, processes we are learning more about daily.

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"!!
You still have not spoken out against the abuse, rape and murder of little girls caused by your religion.

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.
I am not comparing atheism, nor religion to a disease.

I am trying to show you that not having religion, does not mean that you have to have a religion instead. You are trying to say that something must fill up a space when theism is no longer there, and that is simply not true. For atheism is not a space filler, it is the lack of the space filler called theism.

The comparisions of having a disease versus not having a disease is the best possible way to explain, it is too bad you cannot learn.

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.
Actually it happens as often as live births happen. Everyone is born atheist, and stays so until they are indoctrinated.

You are referring to the avowed non-believer, but you are lying about him/her too. To be minus a god who would make you eat your children, is not rebellion on my part, it is simply pure disbelief that anything like that even could, or ever did exist.

We don't know, we can only guess, and I personally don't care.
I do know that no god who caters to the prick, and allows the rape of infants and toddlers, had a hand in it's creation. That god is simply too small and too much a weasel, to have done so.

I've never understood how God could expect his creatures to pick the one true religion by faith — it strikes me as a sloppy way to run a universe.

So if you do not know, or do not care to know, the reality will change?

If you do not know or care to know what happens when you die, the reality will change?

If you do not know, nor care to know what is the purpose of your life, the reality will change and your life will become purposeless?

These are the topics which are main subjects of every religion, you just cannot say, I do not know and I do not care to know.

That is what Atheism should explain and provide "alternative theories".

Just denying things will not solve the problems and these are not "trivial matters"

Agreed. A better way would be to directly plant the same religion into everybody's consciousness.

The fact that there is many contradictory world religions is proof that there is no God.

Also is God was to show himself instead of remaining hidden no Faith decision would be required. The fact that God remains hidden is also proof that no God exists.

No-one knows how the universe came into existence. But to claim God did it does not solve the question. Because this just raises the question, who made God? The evidence shows natural processes only were involved in the creation of the universe.

Why would a good God allow the existence of evil? Proof that no being exists. If an all powerful being just sits back and does nothing, whilst a monster commits horrific cruel acts, then that being is not loving, or does not exist.

I myself have already pointed out what a hypocrite you are over this issue as you are a supporter of unrestricted muslim immigration into Australia of undocumented 'refugees'.
I also pointed out to you that all children should be protected from perverts regardless of what name or lack of name they use to 'justify' their criminal actions.
And what do you always do BitchurdFU?
You report the comments that show you up for the failed human that is unworthy of life.
You refuse to accept the fact that you have being shown to be consistently wrong and then proceed to whine to the moderators until the 'offensive' comments are removed and then go on to whine that your questions havent been answered.
Why should anyone bother to answer anything you ask?
All you will do is report the post, have it removed and claim that the person you asked refuses to answer.

Real men don't have to prove God exists. Real men with mental strength and courage believe on faith.
You have nothing and it shows with your lack of morals and integrity.
Atheists are weak-willed imbeciles.
You're actually right - belief in a god is all about faith, not proof.

Because there is not now, nor has there ever been, any proof that any of the thousands of gods ever worshipped by man ever existed.

What happens after we die? Do you need to see pictures of decomposition or do you have some dead child brides you can go examine in your yard?
