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.

How you say there is "lack" of 100 % evidence of the presence of God?
If you see a thing existing in front of you, it MUST have some one who made it. Is this not AMPLE proof?
No.

You are operating under a false idea that everything has to be created.

It doesn't.

Quantum-mechanics proves this very well-- many events are un-caused, and therefore, have no creator.

So right off the bat?

Your claim is flawed.

Either things created themselves or they came by chance. There is no third option.
Both these options are without any Proofs!!
I feel sorry at the "depth" of your knowledge, nothing else.
Following your own argument one would infer that your God also must have been created if he has been existing..
Why do you think that things are necessarily created by a conscious being?Your argument doesn't hold any philosophical merit unless you're talking about the intelligent design.
There is no need to prove that things had came by chance as you don't need to explain something that happens randomly esp. when there is no proof of God.

If you look at things in this universe, there are Billions upon Billions of proofs of God's Existence, but you have to OPEN your eyes first!!
You've been saying this since the beginning but you have yet to come up with one of those zillion proofs.

No evidence of god. If god is real what made god? No evidence of that either. Welcome to reality.

You're the idiots that invented god, you need to prove it instead of asking the same question back to atheists like a moronic monkey that doesnt understand logic.

The burden of proof has always lied upon, well the liar. In this case all religious liars.

God is Energy and it created the Lord, Gods wife. Isaiah 54:5 "For thy Maker is thine husband..." The Lord in the flesh is called the Messiah or "anointed one". There will probably be a marriage ceremony. Our sun is the source of Energy for the universe and it's called the "bridegroom". Isaiah 19:4-5. "But in his estate shall he honor the God of forces..." Daniel 11:38.

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. Not even: The Babe was born to bring GOOD TIDINGS TO THE WORLD, tidings of joy, love, happiness, no dishing out despair. nor gloom. Let's share the joy of Christmas with everyone, YOU, maker yourself happy tonight and not at the expense of others but YOU, yourself be the Santa expected by the few, penniless, homeless found around the corner. Let those gifts from you to them be a sincere wish for joy. If you have a heart that beats, get with it and enjoy the TIMES of the Season. Look forward to the NewYear. Remember YOU, take carel Someone looks after us.

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

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
