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.

Believing in pixies does not make any sense. Religion is parent-given, not god-given.

Religion = superstition
Theology = mythology
It's obvious! Now grow-up and get over it.

Correct.
Afirmation or denial is a belief.
Ignores the fact that a neutral stance is the starting point for any proposition. Belief in pixies is not as equally as reasonable as disbelief. Russell's teapot...

You're the evangelist trolling the athieism forum for years who can't accept the obvious fact that religion is as superstitious as beliefs in witchcraft or voodoo.

I think people like me simply keep you from going completely overboard. Religious nutters a bane to humanity.

Why are you idiots trying to redefine atheism again? Atheism is a disbelief in religious liars like you who have no evidence of god, its that simple.

If evangelical atheists believed in nothing

then they would have nothing to say in the first place.

Simple: the 100%**lack** of evidence is more than ample proof that there are no such thing as gods.

It's the missing elephant in the room.

But I doubt you can comprehend why that is more than adequate proof.

the elephant in the room is there. Your self-aggrandizement keeps you from acknowledging the presence of God almighty in all of us. LIFE is given to us so much more. More opportunities to progress than is given to any other animal for we are created in the 'image' of the ONE God. You set the one brain you have in overdrive. Be still, look and, THINK.

There is no evidence of God's existence and hence there is a strong possibility that there is no God at all.To prove something's absence is not required unless various scientific /logical facts and sources supports its presence with only empirical evidences being left furnished.
Your God and your heroes(prophets) look like super comic characters in your scriptures as there is no explanation/evidences as to if they ever existed and conjured up various miracles as mentioned in your holy books.

I know 100% there is no all powerful compassionate god because there is evidence of avoidable suffering.

If any god is ever shown to exist, I will oppose it.

Atheism is a simple disbelief in pathetic religious liars like yourself. Good luck trying to redefine.

Almost as stupid at Atheists trying to redifine religion.

I have to agree, here.

Dying babies is 100% proof of no **caring** deities of any sort.

The evidence is

1) when we ask you for evidence about the god you lied about, you don't have any
2) The explaination you give for your god is nothing short of psychotic
3) Evolution is a fact which you idiots deny and don't even understand.

There's the evidence that there's no god.

Now, its your turn, you need to:

1) Present evidnce of the god you're lying about
2) Present valid proof, not some stupid philosophical bullsh*t
3) Present valid evidence against evolution based on facts and evidence.

See? No religious person can do this and this is why they are all liars, just like Einstein said.

The conversation exists, because theists wer stupid enough to antagonise atheists, by calling them all fools in their rag bible.
