Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,456

Please note that for this article "Atheism" also includes agnostics, deists, pagans, wiccans... in other words non-religious.

You will notice this is a statement of fact. And to be fact it is supported by evidence (see references below). Now you can have "faith" that this is not true, but by the very definition of faith, that is just wishful thinking. Full Story

The myth of evolution is a dream if you read books but cannot show scientific evidence then you must believe what the priests and priestess of the religions of dawinism and evolutions write, say and teach. That requires faith in them and believe in what they say.
I can give many examples of natural selection. The natural selection process is how evolution takes place. There fore it is a theory with tangible evidence to support it. Do you have any non-ontological arguments to support creation? Do you have anything tangible and verifiable?

You can't just say, no your wrong because I said so, and that cover an argument. Now obviously English is not your friend. But see to win an argument you just how some kind of proof not just bleat, I'm right you're wrong as you always do. Do you want me to send you an online translator so you can make more sense?
<quoted text>
No; no other name. no broken English only facts that the blind choose to ignore.

All of creation cries out that YHVH is the only true God, deny it if you want I don't care.

Where is your proof Yahweh exists? And no saying because you believe in him doesn't count. Show some actual observable testable proof.
Maybe you should type it in your language and we just use an online translator to fix it? It would make more sense because you are terrible at English.
<quoted text>
Have you read your post, you call my English bad read this "And no saying because you believe in him doesn't count" what "him doesn't count" what on earth does that mean English calls for link either punctuation of a preposition. Guess you need to learn some English.

I know all about “natural selection” it comes in many variances. If “natural selection” was real from an evolutionary point the ok evolution will be true but it is NOT. Evolution is not tangible or verifiable, if you have any real evidence please feel free to post it.

Are you a scientist involved in the mythological study of the myth of evolution.

Well actually yes it is, but it doesn't matter and has nothing to do with atheism.

Science never assumes anything is 100% proven true, it can't. The very nature of inductive reasoning doesn't support such a claim. Sorry you don't understand enough about basic science to grasp this idea.

What we have is such a plethora of evidence gathered over the past 150+ years from biological scientists all over the world that to withhold tacit support for the theory of biological evolution would be unreasonable.

But the real bottom line is that this understanding of how biology works serves us no matter how incomplete it is. This model of biology allows us to make TESTABLE predictions which ave greatly improved crop production, animal husbandry, and human healthcare. Unless and until a better, more accurate model comes along it really doesn't matter how imperfect our current model is. It's still all we have.

You don't like it, come up with a better model. But it MUST provide for more accurate testable predictive capabilities that are independently verifiable. Until then biologist will use the only working model they have, no matter how much you whine about how you don't like it.

But you should also understand, atheistic skepticism about supernatural deities existed long, LONG before anybody ever considered how biology actually worked.

True, but then anything can be seen in that god. Lucky for him that the god is so pliable, and can be made to fit any mold

If science can never prove anything as true you have a serious issue with your basic existence, can you prove scientifically that you even exist, no you can’t (poor you) I on the other hand can prove that I exist scientifically. I can also prove many other things with 100% scientific assurance. Inductive reasoning stops at the door of any good lab where proof and not reasoning are master, you reason in a classroom you prove science in a lab.
I agree that science has nothing to do with atheism (that thread of discussion has long since left that thread) science also has nothing to do with the myth of evolution, or the cosmic big bang or with Primordial puddle that life was supposed to have sprang form.
All the evidence has yet to provide proof any of evolution, so it remains a myth, yes a popular myth because with it atheist scientists (there’s you link) spend billions of $$$$$$ trying to disprove the existence of God and creation.

You poor little person. Your beliefs are not the center of focus of science. Sciences does NOT concern itself with proving or disproving anybody's deity.

Science tries it's best to understand how nature works. If science happens to discover something that conflicts with your religion, too bad.

The Sun doesn't revolve around the Earth and biology on this planet evolves.

If science does not concern it’s self with the existence of God why does it concern it’s self with the origins of the universe, if as the myth claim it happened 15 billion years ago why spend billions of $$$$$$ trying to replicate the so called “big Bang” myth. Why are billions of $$$$$ spent trying to prove life may have existed on Mars. All this is a feeble attempt to disprove God.

Yes there is legitimate biological science but it will never conflict with YHVH God of Israel and the Bible. Let’s not forget it was science that believed that the earth was the centre of the universe and that the sun revolved around us, not YHVH nor the Bible.

Why don't you post evidence that YHVH is not God,
The fact there is no evidence he is god is evidence he isn't.

But you haven't posted any proofs at all! You just say he is. That's no more proof than a Muslim saying Allah is god.

How so? If nothing else, it shows they are sincere.(Wrong, but sincere.)

...
So then you should be able to easily cite at least 1 peer-reviewed scientific article that clearly states this "100% scientific assurance" you speak of.

You are wrong about this. You are so wrong about this is isn't even funny, it's just pathetic.
