Don't let atheists grow in influence

Oct 11, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: This Is Staffordshire

Why, when people are arguing that we should not 'bow to religion', are we creating new rules for another religion that of atheism? The definition of a religion or faith is a belief in the existence or non-existence of God in the absolute absence of corroborative scientific evidence.

Science deals in probabilities.

Religion deals in certainties--especially if there is no possibility of calculating the probability.

"I WRITE regarding the scouting movement's decision to provide an alternative 'godless' oath to appease atheists" Oh this is going to be great! They are not doing it to appease atheists they are doing to appease the law, doing things under God in a state where "congresses shall pass no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;" is not legal.

"Why, when people are arguing that we should not 'bow to religion', are we creating new rules for another religion that of atheism?" I refer to the above and note that removing "under God" is something that would actually bring everyone under the same rules, as religion made us bow and separated in the first place.

"The definition of a religion or faith is a belief in the existence or non-existence of God in the absolute absence of corroborative scientific evidence." WTF religion is an ideology it has rules and commands, one can't make an ideology on one belief alone.

"Atheism is arguably anti-scientific as agnosticism holds a neutral standpoint until such evidence is available." No, most atheists call themselves atheist due to a lack of evidence because agnosticism in all forms only answers on the question "do we/can we know X" and X can be anything.

"To believe a youngster holds an independent view that God definitely does not exist is nave, as this will either have come from the parent or another adult." Unless one deconverts from that which their parents told them usually religion...

"When agenda-driven people say religion is evil because some people distort teachings, it can be equally argued that the atheist faith is evil." From Mark Twain "The Christian's Bible is a drug store. Its contents remain the same; but the medical practice changes...The world has corrected the Bible. The church never corrects it; and also never fails to drop in at the tail of the procession- and take the credit of the correction."
( http://www.twainquotes.com/Bible.html ) F*** he wasn't even a full blown athiest!

"I hope an atheist will respond and this will serve to underline the religious nature of their position." Oh yes we will, just yours though...(read the comments on page)

"If we live and die by political correctness only, we deserve the world that we will leave to our children." Just one thing "political correctness" as opposed to ideologies that make the government violate it's own the first amendment?

Just show the ribbon on the top of the page says "trusted source"...

christianty stopped the human race moving forward, for 1700 years we never invented nothing, science came along 300 years ago, we have gone from horse and carts, to living space, all thanks to science, all use bible botherers did was build pagan temples/ churches, and made the white race out to be the biggest slave traders ever, all thanks to your jewsus and your arab god

Religion sends people to hell, their teaching hell is a fire punishment forever, for those not saved or not of their religion, and the bigger lie is the doctrine teaching that Jesus is god. Now you are saying Atheism sends people to your understanding of hell, when Atheists are better off than you according to Jesus.

No, you liar. Your Satan actually brought all of those problems to the planet. You should stop embracing the Liar and become an upstanding Christian, if you can find a way to release all of that hatred you cling to with your cult of atheism.
He's not *our* satan. The talking snake and all other incarnations of satan are part of your mythology. There's no more evidence for the existence of satan than for the existence of god.

I'm afraid I can't become an "upstanding christian". My information is that they make you lay down when they perform a lobotomy, not stand up.

This writer doesn't know his definitions very well. Is definition of religion is sort of the definition of theism (the believe in a deity) and atheism (the disbelief in a deity).

Most atheists, were brought up as theists, and at some point starting using critical thinking thanks to being a skeptic. To say that an atheist child, who does not believe in a god is being nave, then what does that say about children who believe in god, without evidence.

At least the atheist child will grow up being able to use reason and logic to back his non belief based on no evidence ever, of any deity. The theist child is going to lack critical thinking skills, and will have nothing more than faith to back his claim. Faith - A belief in a deity, without evidence.

And to the writer, atheism is simply a non belief in a deity, nothing more.

Nun: You don't believe in God because of Alice in Wonderland?
Loki: No, "Through the Looking Glass." That poem, "The Walrus and the Carpenter," that's an indictment of organized religion. The walrus, with his girth and his good nature, he obviously represents either Buddha, or...or with his tusk, the Hindu elephant god, Lord Ganesha. That takes care of your Eastern religions. Now the carpenter, which is an obvious reference to Jesus Christ, who was raised a carpenter's son, he represents the Western religions. Now in the poem, what do they do...what do they do? They...they dupe all these oysters into following them and then proceed to shuck and devour the helpless creatures en masse. I don't know what that says to you, but to me it says that following these faiths based on mythological figures ensure the destruction of one's inner being. Organized religion destroys who we are by inhibiting our actions...by inhibiting our decisions, out of...out of fear of some...some intangible parent figure who...who shakes a finger at us from thousands of years ago and says...and says, "Do it-do it and I'll f---in' spank you!"

Seven Godly Sins
When god destroys people for not obeying him, it is WRATH
When god punishes people for believing in a different god, it is ENVY
When god lets tragedies and disasters happen of which he could have prevented, it is SLOTH
When god allows anyone to hunger unnecessarily while he has enough for himself, it is GLUTTONY
When god expects his followers to dedicate their lives to worrshipping and praying to him, it is PRIDE
When god insists his followers pay tithes and offerings for his approval, it is GREED
When god intends on being party to every marriage, it is LUST

Yes, those wretched non-believers will face eternal damnation in the Lake Of Fire lest they accept Jesus Christ and repent of their sins. It is far better to gain their mansion in Heaven than to spend eternity in a Devil's Hell.
