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.

Religion = superstition
It's divisive, outdated and a plague on humanity. People need to get over it.

<quoted text> me too! those are the traditional Holiday Greetings since our desperate scramble to discard CHRIST from that Holy Nativity Night, followed by a Happy Family Day.
1) your hideous religion did not invent Winter Solstice as a holiday-- that tradition pre-dates your silly religion by thousands of years.

2) Saying "Happy Holidays" covers **all** the various traditions, including your ugly one.

3) There never was a person, "jesus"-- it's just fabricated

4) Even if there had been a "jesus", according to the time-table of your myth? He would have been born in the **SPRING** not mid-winter.

We are not the "idiots" who "invented" God, the idiots are those who see every thing around them and then "ASSUME" that they created themselves or just came by chance.

They are the Real Idiots, by any standard!!

I used to hear "God is Love".

Now you are saying "God is Energy".

What else would they think next!!

Apparently human beings didn't know God until the advent of religion.That makes one wonder if God really exists as religion is insidiously a political system that was devised to fool and control people.
Let's say there is a God for the sake of argument.What is the evidence that the supposed real God is indeed your Allah?In other words how would you prove that Muhammad wasn't lying ?
There is so many inconsistencies and contradictions in his description of God and his supposed commandments .
Here is a small example.Muhammad asked everyone to submit to Allah as,he says, Allah wants everyone to accept Islam.On the other hand,there are many verses in Quran that say Allah guides only those people to Islam whom he really wants to.
How would you explain this contradiction?
An intelligent God would never give in to such logical fallacy.But your Allah does.
So is Allah whimsical that he contradicts himself or is it something wrong with someone else?

Bob, down boy, I never said anything about the pagan observance of 'winter solstice' for there is science behind it. Scientific facts were hard to explain thereby the credit went to unseen forces or,face it, God's doings, maybe pagans credited several gods but in their minds something awesome happened time and again. God Almighty let us see, let us develop our own understanding of the world and the universe. BIG, time passes and more discoveries come to make us see PERFECTION and perfection belongs to God. The 'advent of religion' that's an old thought that gives us the sense we need to carry on. Freedom of ideas leading to the onlyTRUTH. YOU NEED TO ADMIT IT. MerryChristmas

Your ugly religion has **nothing** that is original material-- nothing. It's all stolen from older religions.

All of it.

And your idiot god is too inept to explain it to them? Seriously-- that's pretty lame, even for you.

Before that they said "God isn't real", but the idiot religious had their hands over their ears.

There is no proof either way, but atheists want believers to prove there is a god, but exempt themselves from the same burden.

They want it both ways.

They also cannot understand that for deists, belief is based on faith; a concept they cannot grasp.

Internet Atheists trolls cannot come to terms with the fact that the claim of the nonexistence of deities is a belief.
Instead, Internet Atheists claim that atheism is a lack of belief which is actually agnosticism.
I find evengelical atheists as aggressive as religious fundamentalists.
In any discussion, they want to shut down any opposition and display the samen kind of oppression than religious fanatics.

They certainly don't make atheism attractive to anyone.

If you feel we atheists are aggressive you should thank us for confining our aggressiveness to discussions and refraining ourselves from going out for suicide bombings and Crusade kind of war.

We do understand what belief is.But belief alone doesn't qualify religion as the ultimate truth.

Why do evangelical atheists always feel the need to insult believers?

Do they think they are superior?

Why the need to highlight the extremists, like if they were the mainstream of believers?

Some atheists have been very aggressive in recent history too.
