Atheism to Defeat Religion by 2038

Apr 25, 2012 Full story: Psychology Today 22,931

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.

A Grand designer ( A GOD ) which is the next plausible and logical step before you can assume from nothing came everything without any real meaning or purpose whatsoever ! Everything in life has a purpose ! Does it not ? Everything that is in the universe has a purpose ! Does it not ?
Everything that exists is encased from the atom to the cells in your body to the gravity of the earth to the solar system to the galaxy to the universe ! Why does that all get ignored when science lives by these rules and tests them over and over again proving constants, Then throws it all out the door when it comes to the whole matter of creation and the meaning of life itself !

If it is, as you say, implausible that "from nothing came everything" where did this god come from?

Its the classic religious twit who says everthing came from somewhere, but can't explain where god came from.

Tell us transdiode, you dishonest creationist toilet, where does cancer come from? Where does aids come from?

If it comes from your god lies, your delusions are wholly immoral and ignorant. Get your head checked.

Everything has a purpose?Really?If you are really certain about it you should tell what is the meaning and purpose of every single entity that exists in this universe as philosophers for eons haven't been able to fathom the very same thing.You try to be smart but you fail to impress as you come up with unwarranted assumptions like this.
No one knows if there is a inherent meaning of our life so you can't be certain about it as long as you're skeptical enough to disbelieve in dogmas of religion pertaining to the purpose of life.
Could you please tell as to why God is the next plausible outcome if all of those anti-God arguments supposedly fail(in my opinion they don't).
It is easier to say there is a God but you need to explain how such a God can exist without any beginning!
If you can't accept universe's birth out of nothing then you should be explaining the exception that God can exist without any beginning.
Why theists come up with this special pleading and they want people to believe in this?
If God really exists explain the purpose of God's existence as you are certain that everything that exists has a meaning.

House?
Your whole argument seems to be based on an unwarranted assumption that we the human beings are something special and have some inherent purpose that someone must have created universe to suit our existence!If the assumption is true,you are right.But if it is wrong,your whole argument is pointless.You need to prove there is a special purpose of our lives.
Even Socrates conceded,"I know one thing:I know nothing"
You are confidence indicates that you've cracked the code of life so could you tell what is the meaning of our lives?

Glad to see you've given up on any claim whatsoever which has any scientific bearing in any way.

Now to shoot down your new theory.

People often live in houses which aren't finished. In fact given the size of the DIY industry, the vast majority do.

Your need to pretend otherwise because science keeps making you look stupid doesn't change this truism.

Thought this might be of interest...

Burridge doesn’t seem to have seen the film. If Life of Brian isn’t a lampoon of Christianity what is?! Burridge doesn’t even seem to realise that Brian wasn't a 'failed messiah'. Apart from the fact he attracted a large following, he kept trying to tell everyone he wasn't a stupid 'prophet' at all.

Professor R A Burridge's doctoral thesis was on the 'genre of the gospels' and he is professor of 'Biblical interpretation'. Who judges theological theses except other religionists? Is that a peer review or a cult's opinion?

The terms theology & theologian are used to try to dignify religion as something more than any other superstition, such as witchcraft or Voodoo. It’s all mythology and legends.

Religion = superstition

Why do you use the word accident? The opposite of design isn't accident.

You morons are all the same. Until you admit that you have two insurmountable problems in the above statement nothing further is worth discussing with you. One, no scientist of any repute claims there was 'nothing' before the big bang. Two, if there was always a god (refuting your own argument that something can't come from nothing) then there could have always been a state of physical reality (with our universe being just the most recent iteration). Why do you refuse to address these two lies you cling to? The only conclusion of most independent thinkers is that you are either retarded or you have no intention of reasoned discussion.

Some good news today

Long-awaited plans to the visit the Holy Land in May of this year. Outlining limited details of his trip, the pope said that “God willing”, he would make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land from May 24th-26th, visiting Israel, the West Bank and Jordan.

It was suspected by Vatican watchers that Francis would visit the Holy Land this year as he has made no secret of his desire to commemorate the January 5th, 1964, meeting between pope Paul VI and Orthodox Christian patriarch Athenagoras. Accordingly, the pope announced his trip yesterday, the day that marks the 50th anniversary of that historic meeting.

Ecumenical service
In the same spirit, one of the key moments of the trip will be an ecumenical service at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem where Francis will be joined by the current patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholemew, as well as by representatives from other Christian churches in Jerusalem. Christians believe that Jesus was crucified and buried in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

Israeli relations
Francis will be the fourth pope to visit Israel, following visits by John Paul II in 2000 and by Benedict in 2009. Vatican-Israeli relations were strained for much of the postwar era, partly because of the Holy See’s reluctance to officially recognise the newly founded Jewish state. It was only in 1993 that John Paul II finally opened diplomatic relations with Israel, an initiative that was followed seven years later by a memorable visit which included stops at the Holocaust memorial Yad Vashem, and at the Western Wall, where he famously consigned a hand- written plea asking forgiveness for Christian persecution.

Think how little science we knew just 200 years ago and how much more we will know in 200 years time.

Just because we don't know everything yet doesn't prove there's a God. To claim it does isn't logic, it's just lazy thinking.

Just how little we still know, it is certainly putting your foot in your mouth by making this big claim that there is no God?

Have you found anything in your knowledge so far, anything not governed by laws and rules?

Who made these laws and rules and "forced" every one to follow it?

Only people with "little knowledge" would be stupid enough to deny the existence of Creator.

Most of Great Scientists believed in the existence of Creator.

They however differed in the Model of Creator which so called religion presented.

They were exposed to model of Judaism and Christianity and Hinduism etc....which did not fit their observation.

They were too biased to study the Model of Creator presented by Islam, otherwise, it would have provided them true guidance.
