Tell that to the stacks for foreclosed church deeds and religious leaders calling the nonbeliever movement devastating. The Christians are trembling over atheists as proven by all of the effort you spend on us. Simply put so many Christians wouldn't be wasting the tremendous time, effort and money on nonbelievers if we were such a small insignificant number and not progressing. It would be a fruitless endeavor yes?

<quoted text>We all know that newer generations will be better informed about religion ie. science over God.

However, the rise in radical Islam will result in more [usually non religious] people in the West to claim Christianity as their primary faith, even if they haven't been to church in the last 5 years and wouldn't normally refer to themselves as such.

As the anti-Muslim brigade get ever louder, so too will more moderate Muslims who see their whole faith coming under attack.

This will again result in Pro-christian movements becoming ever more vociferous in condemning Islam.

The result will be an even more religious society in 30 years.

All that good work undone by religious fanatics

The overwhelming majority of Islamic growth is from them having excessive amounts of children.

Well they are bought and sold like baseball cards in Islam. Once women start getting a proper education in Islam it will crumble faster.

Remember what I said about atrocious English with that one? That's why he tends to steal from others in his off topic spam posts.

I offered to help him find some ESL classes. I wish he would take some so he could make sense when he posts for his preacher on here.

Look at his posts... You can obviously see English is not his first language. I pity him actually because I am sure he humiliates himself on here for his church.

Brownie points for Jesus I guess.

There is no rejecting anything to be an atheist. Atheist is not theist.
Do all the religions that you reject make you an atheist?
Yep.

Atheism will defeat religion where there is free access of information and education, because the arguments are stronger. Religion is only growing in those parts of the world where there is a large proportion of uneducated and illiterate children.
Correct: the lower the average level of intelligence? The **higher** the overall level of **religion**.

Religion **requires** ignorance to exist.

Correct: he believes his mother created him, with his dad's help.

Children are quite literal like that.

But no child is born who already **believes** in gods... they have to be FORCED to do so with much abuse and repetition of lies.

Qualities of a True Prophet of God:

H. Eighth Quality: Prophets were sent to all nations of world:

Since every nation and every people need guidance from God to fulfill their mission of life and True Guidance can only come thru Revelation; that is why God sent Prophets and Messengers to every nation in all parts of world.

These prophets came in all ages and spoke in the languages of their people and delivered the guidance of God and asked their followers to follow them and take them as their role models.

H1. No one except God knows exact number of Prophets:

No one except God knows the exact numbers of Prophets and Messengers. We know the names of only a handful of them, and most of them remain unknown to us.

H2 A Prophet of God is deemed alive as long as his True Teachings remain intact:

In case any one should deduce that Physical Presence of Prophet of God is essential in every age and time; let it suffice that a prophet is deemed alive as long as his teachings and sayings and actions are preserved and reach posterity in reliable form.

This is way of God that He sends another prophet to revive the message of old Prophet, when it has been almost forgotten or so much changed and distorted thru passage of time; or circumstances have changed so much that people might fall into serious error unless it is revised or updated.
