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.

Yes.

Man made devices are backed by evidence.

Prince George was carried into the Chapel Royal by his father, the Duke of Cambridge

The christening of Prince George has taken place in the Chapel Royal at St James's Palace in London.

The prince, third in line to the throne, was baptised by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

The christening was private, with only senior royals, four members of the Middleton family, the seven godparents and their spouses among the 22 guests.

Prince George, son of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, was born in London on 22 July.

The duchess carried her newly christened son out of the chapel after the ceremony, and the guests then left for tea hosted by the Prince of Wales at Clarence House.

Godparents revealed
The godparents, announced earlier, are Oliver Baker, Emilia Jardine-Paterson, Earl Grosvenor, Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, Julia Samuel, William van Cutsem and Zara Tindall.

Mrs Tindall, wife of former England rugby player Mike Tindall, is Prince William's cousin, while the other six godparents are all friends of the royal couple.

Why don't you create those "God made devices"?

Why not create a "few galaxies" out there? There are already billion there!

Why not bring sun closer to earth?

It worked out great for one pedophile, and helped create millions more perverts. Thighing babies is ungodly, a horrendous man made indecency, from a perverted monster of a prophet.
There would have been some truth in what you say, if humans were able to create any thing that God created.

When they are unable to do it, it is only their "stupidity" to deny the existence of God.

LMAO!
I am asking you if universe was really created or not.And you are asking me to create galaxies?
MUQ,you need to prove that universe was created.We atheists have different perception that you need to understand.
Our perception is universe may have easily come into existence without any need of conscious being.We do not see universe as a "conscious creation".
If you want to argue that universe was created by God,then the very first thing you need to explain is why do you think universe couldn't have been born without any intelligence being involved in its creation?
PS:Ask your God to bring sun closer to earth.We would believe him if he does so.:D

Name one thing, just ONE thing, that you consider that your god created, that can be substantiated with any degree of proof,,,, just one thing.

Gods can't create what man did. Man created gods, all of them. That is why the gods are so ungodly, and so damned human. Look to your god, for instance .... a cheap rtip-off of the Jewish god, and too he is an enabler of pedophiles! What more proof is there, a god so damned ungodly and is instead purely perverted, allowing adults to prey on children.

A real god would incinerate your god.

The SAME way, it bothers you, why there are so many people who still believe in God and religion!!
These are places where people exchange their ideas and speak about their beliefs, why should we stop discussing and put ourselves into different cages?
The charges and the language which you people used against those who still believe in God and religions, is much harsher and abusive than what we use.
Poor argument there MUQ.

I have no problem arguing ideas with you.

But when it comes to governments enacting laws to force you to believe (or have you pretend you believe) in a religion... that's a different story now, isn't it?

Why only one thing, there are billions upon billions of thing which God created and His creation power has not ceased.

He is continue creating trillions of things every day,

You want ONE example, who created you? Your parents, you yourself, or Darwin, Newton or Einstein?

I never imagined, I would ever see a dumb question like this!!

I do not know any Govt. enacting laws to "force any one to believe in any religion".

Govt. enacting laws to "ask people" to act on what they believe is totally different thing.

You even do not know what are the issues, do you?

Ahh, but do not governments enact laws to give privilege to the preferred state religion? They'll certainly give you a nudge or shove or electric shock or imprisonment to "guide" you.

And "ask people"?

Is that like a mugger holding a gun to your head asking "please, give me your wallet?"

By your standard, there's no crime. The mugger asked nicely and you gave "freely."

I see the issues you put forth.

That you are not fooling me with your poor arguments seems to be the problem. For you...
