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.

Atheist, no god at all. Suppose that is so, but it means our human existence just happened. NOT even! why does my heart constantly beat? why does its pace goes according to my 'feelings'? I am very much alive. I feel joy. I feel pain and not simply for me. I hear stories that affect my emotions, I see pictures that do the same. I'm not alone. Just happened? Why? My biological, my physical being, my thoughts, my mind,my HEART. All is real, all is me, BUT, WHY? There is no better answer, there is no ANSWER at all. GOD, Comes to my rescue I KNOW,,I BELIEVE. Join me.

More mad religious essays from depressed humans.

Many humans will ask "why??" - a meaningless question. Without testing if the question is sufficient, they will then answer their own flawed question with *god*/*magic*.

Now they have found the answer, the religious mental illness is complete. Humanity has lost another able being to the cult of stupid beliefs.

'faith is lying to yourself' what a quaint statement, what a self-produced excuse for something that cannot be expressed.

If you don't have average intelligence, you can still sense it. We don't know everything even if as children we believe our parent do. That is a hint as to WHO'S IN CONTROL. Believe. It costs nothing and could SAVE you.
You are exactly right, faith is prettied up, painted over, and gilded, lying to yourself.

Those who deny faith, themselves have "blind faith" in no many things that they cannot count.
Ask any of those "faith deniers", will they drink from a bottle, that has a label "Poison" on it? What prevents them from drinking?
There are so many things that people have blind faith and depending on analysis by others, that if every one wants to believe only after experimenting it, no one can live for even one day.
But when it comes to faith in religious teachings, all these "believers" start ridiculing other believers!!
Poor MUQ,comes up with wrong analogy again.
What if the same bottle has multiple labels of "Poison","Milk ","Honey" and many other potable drinks?What if one finds out that the people who labelled these on the bottle have no knowledge about its content and they are only feigning their supposed knowledge?
Religion does the same thing.Christians,Hindus,Muslim s,Jews and many other religion adherents try to explain our life and its meaning in their own way and many times they contradict each other as well as themselves.
When we ask for proofs and evidences to prove their stance(to check if their knowledge is valid and real) they fail to furnish.

Really? No evidence to support Evolution?(Lets ignore this absurdity for one moment)
So how do you *believe& was Evolution discovered then? Your turn you talk now....
You'll have to overlook those who prefer ignorance and read fairy tales. They are certain that the world was created 6,000 years ago on a Tuesday in October.

Human DNA has been discovered from a female skeleton found in Africa which was alive over 3,000,000 years ago. They have thoroughly dug around and proven that an asteroid as big as a city struck the earth about 160,000,000 years ago and wiped out all life except the burrowing species. All of us evolved from a small creature the size of a ground squirrel and it's brain was larger and more capable than that of those who believe the bible...the snake handlers. Religion is a crutch and the youth of today are wising up and abandoning religious beliefs by the millions. This Pew Survey shows that the youth in this country are smarter than all those over 50 combined:

"Washington – The fastest growing "religious" group in America is made up of people with no religion at all, according to a Pew survey showing that one in five Americans is not affiliated with any religion.

The number of these Americans has grown by 25% just in the past five years, according to a survey released Tuesday by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life.

The survey found that the ranks of the unaffiliated are growing even faster among younger Americans.

Thirty-three million Americans now have no religious affiliation, with 13 million in that group identifying as either atheist or agnostic, according to the new survey.

Pew found that those who are religiously unaffiliated are strikingly less religious than the public at large. They attend church infrequently, if at all, are largely not seeking out religion and say that the lack of it in their lives is of little importance."

See?

The above is 100% lies, or as they say in logic: A Strawman.

The above insanity is *also* because the person who wrote it, has been poisoned by brainwashing for most of it's life.

Such that, it actually believes the LIE is REAL.

It's told this LIE is called "faith".

And sadly? It believes that lie, too.

Experience prevents them from drinking-- not faith.

This idiot thinks that trust that the SUN will come up in the morning is the same as BLIND FAITH IN STUPID SH|T LIKE GODS.

Wow.

What a moron this MUQ is.

It's brain damage is quite severe.... the faith is very evident too.

You have faith that science gives you all the correct answers and that your view to creation is correct by your faith in science ! its your belief system and science is your God !:)
Apparently **you** do not know what a "strawman" is.

Look it up--- you just used the strawman process. Again.

I **am** an atheist.

I **have** no **faith**-- not how **you** use the word.

So.... I just proved you were **lying**.

It's what you faithitsts do best: lie.

I would **love** to join you.

But first?

You are so going to have to take a step in **my** direction.

It's and easy step for you-- IF YOUR GOD IS REALLY REAL, that is.

Have your god speak directly to me. And then? We can join together in your ... what did you call it? Oh yeah, "joy".

I'll be waiting for your god's message directly into my brain.

(but I won't hold my breath or anything like that-- nor will I be stopping my usual life chores-- if your god is **REAL** that won't matter one bit)

However.

If your god does NOT make an appearance?

I fully expect an APOLOGY from you, for LYING.

I'll give you three days out of consideration for the fact that you seem to be kinda slow.

This looks like some on explaining "Trinity" in Simple language!!
Just moving around the circle and meaning nothing.
The basic question is "How Any thing can happen" in this universe, unless there be some doer?
So the existence and presence of God is self proven!!
Those who doubt it, should create some thing by chance and by itself!!
PS:
This test itself will show how unreasonable and illogical these so called Atheists are.
Lets try that test shall we?

I'll leave the milk out but film it and see if a god comes along and changes it for me or if it changes itself.

Also, can you tell me what your creation explanation is?'God did it' doesn't work since god had to come from somewhere unless you are saying god does not exist within our universe, that part I'll believe.

Once again an Atheist who puts all their FAITH in Science that helps try to confirm their BELIEF SYSTEM !! All scientific dating techniques are flawed ! Just give me any example you want and I will gladly show you why it is flawed :)
