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.

Some of the kindest people in my life have been religious.
I have met a few kind people who's worldview included belief of some sort.

Unfortunately, christianity encourages the opposite sort. I suppose that's because it also encourages a "no consequences" attitude, so long as the "results" are "on target".

Why not? They have this magic spell they cast, "jesus, forgive me" and no consequences-- or so they are taught.

That is the reality. Unless someone can come up with evidence of God, or a place called heaven and hell. Without evidence, these things are just imaginary,


2.

If you just leave it like that, then I would have no issue. If you think a creator has put reason in your brain Im ok with that. Its called Deism.

The problem is with man made religions. Contradictory teachings of so called prophets. Especially when they teach camp fire myths and barbaric methods from the iron age.

1. There are so many things in this Universe that we are unable to see. Is it the mistake of things or our own disability?

If God was physical, we could be able to see it, it is our disability and not any shortcoming on His part that we are unable to "see Him".

But signs of His Presence and His wonders are available every where in this vast universe, every thing points to Him.

Only if you could use your brain and analyzing power that God gave it to you.

2. You may be right to reject "man made religions", we also reject all man made religions.

But those religions which came from God Himself, they are based on truth and would lead to true path.

PS:

A truth does not become falsehood that it came in "Iron age" or "Copper age" or "Information age".

A truth remains truth, irrespective of time gap.

Muhammad raped little girls as you have said and believed in evil genies roaming the sands of Arabia!

Lol!

Who could take Islam as a serious religion when it teaches about such foolish things? Only ignorant sub human swine or those forced to believe under threat of death. And you know Muq if the threat of leaving Islam was removed the religion would dwindle to nothing.

When you ask a theist for proof of god they call you a communist and compare you to hilter.

A True religion is based on Revelation of God and teachings of a true prophet of God.

Since islam satisfies both these conditions, it is a true religion.

Now can I ask the same questions, with the followers of other religions?

Atheists will never follow a cult of ignorant liars who have no proof of god.

GOD a "He" / "He" and "Him" means a GOD constructed by a male dominated society. MUQ tries to tell us that since there are mysteries of life and all then there is a "he" GOD. None of human invented religions told us about a major truth about life : now proven Evolution of the Specis. MUQ wants mayhem so that millions die for Shia free & other religions free Islam. I believe real GOD will not forgive MUQ since MUQ now not an ignorant of the fact of the Evolution of Specis.
OH! MUQ!

Did the revelation include now proven lie of Adam and Eve?(Does that not prove that the crux of that creation was lifted from Jewish OT? OH! MUQ!

All religions make the same claim. If Islam were true and positive it would not require killing those who leave it.

All religions have "revelations from [god]," this is not a difference, this does not make your religion stand out at all.

And everytime a boatload of muslim 'refugees' turns up in Australia you are the first one to demand they get welfare, public housing, leniency if they end up being arrested for raping white girls because of their 'religious' beliefs and punks like you always go out of your way to sign them up for the atheist and apostate Labor Party.

OK.Who is a prophet and how would you confirm whether a person who claims themselves to be a prophet is true or not and that their teachings are based on messages recieved from a supernatural power?How does Muhammad fulfill the criteria of being true?Explain.
PS:I am not a religious person and do not represent any religious group.I hope that question is directed towards Non-Muslim religious people in this forum.
