Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,477

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

Funny that cosmic evolution is what you religion happened at the beginning, perhaps you forgot that line or should I say lie.

Scientists
• George Washington Carver 1864-1943- Went to a black public school in Diamond, MO ten miles from his home as blacks were not allowed to attend white schools. Rented a room from the head of the school. Not home schooled.

• Pierre Curie Not American- 1859-1906 Taught by his father Dr Eugene` Curie and earned a degree in math at age 16, a degree in the equivalent of a higher degree at age 18. He earned a doctorate later in life but the place from where he obtained it is not known.

• Albert Einstein 1879-1955 Attended a Catholic elementary school age 5 to 8, transferred to Luitpold Gymnasium for a primary and secondary education, left at age 15; attended Swiss Federal Polytechnic in Zurich (later the Eidgenössische Polytechnische Schule) but failed several subjects while getting excellent grades in physics and mathematics. Not American born nor home-schooled.

• Michael Faraday - electrochemist 1791-1867 Had a minimal basic school education and was thereafter self-educated. The history of his education by reading books on physics and chemistry is one of the most interesting and encouraging anyone could ever read. Not an American.

• Oliver Heaviside - physicist and electromagnetism researcher 1850-1925 Not an American. Attended school in Camden Town near London until age 16, then studied electromagnetism and telegraphy. Not home-schooled.

• T.H. Huxley 1825-1895 Not an American. Attended the school where his father taught until it closed when he was 10. Learned German, Greek and Latin by himself. With only two years of formal education, he earned enough Latin and German to be used by Charles Darwin to translate scientific material into German. Brilliant!

• Blaise Pascal 1623-1662 Not an American. Educated by his father who was himself well-educated and a Dr.

• Booker T. Washington 1856-1915 An African-American born into slavery. Worked his way through Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute before going to college at Wayland Seminary (now VA Union University). Not home schooled.

• Erik Demaine - Popular Science Mag: One of the Most Brilliant Scientists in America Not born in or schooled in America. Born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, entered Dalhousie University in Canada at age 12, obtained his batchelors degree at age 14 and his PhD at 20. Not home-schooled.

Maybe you should have done some research on your lists before posting them. Someone always will do so when you present a list saying that all these people were home-schooled. Some of the names on the first list were so recognizable and known to have attended college.

No sense spending time doing research to prove that your lists are incorrect. I've already done that on a good many. Maybe by this you have learned something-to do your own research before copying someone else's list. Not everyone is honest, Colin. Therefore you have to be diligent in your checking their assertions.

I don't think this was dishonesty on your part. I think you just were too trusting of the site from where you copied the names. A site which, by the way, you did not cite or give credit.

You lies are not facts no matter how hard you try. So you know what it means Home schooled does not mean no university or college. Perhaps you just don't know anything at all.

What a lot of trash you type, you don’t even post a logical argument. Why would I say YHVH God of Israel used evolution, that would be a lie and bring YHVH to your level of utter ignorance, which He could never do.
How dare you suggest you understand the mechanisms YAHWEH (or whatever his name is) uses to work his magic? Say "I don't know" or say "he's uses evolution" and then simply move on. What possible difference would it make to you or your "faith"? You are an imp of the new Satan and his name is ignorance.

There's libraries, museums and research halls filled with evidence for Evolution. I'll not be stooping to your scissor and paste child's play. You need to 'man up' and admit you don't have a clue. You reject science's explanation and can't understand God's techniques. Where does that leave you? In fact, by belittling Mankind's best efforts to understand his place in the Universe you imagine yourself in some privileged relationship with YAHWEH, Creator of Worlds and thus feed your own bloated ego. You people simply cannot take the fact that you are an insignificant member of an insignificant species on an insignificant planet in an insignificant galaxy that's part of an insignificant Universe floating around in an endless Multiverse of boundless time & space.

Yeah, the creator of all that cares what "Colin the Zionist" thinks. LOL. Hey, I got some property in Florida if you're interested.

How dare I suggest that YHVH God of Israel did not use evolution to create with, what a croc. I do understand what YHVH God of Israel says in his word I so know with 100% certainty that He did not use evolution .

I do not reject real science, I do however reject your assertion that there is evidence for the myth (lie) of evolution, there are no “libraries, museums and research halls filled with evidence for Evolution” there are libraries, museums and research halls filled with guess work and speculation about the myth of evolution. Paid for by the tax dollars of people worldwide while the “insignificant species” called evolutionary scientists and the “insignificant members” of their many classes dig holes so they can keep up the deception that they are actually contributing to the world. Ignorance believes that the myth (lie) of evolution is actually true.

I have now asked 135 times for anyone to post the evidence that 100% proves evolution is fact, but no you lot just beat around the bush. If you have evidence post it here, if you are an evolutionary scientist I challenge to write a paper and get it published that proves evolution. GO ON DO IT you will be the first and the last, you will be fired from your job if you have one in that field. You want to know why, because the funding will all dry up and the rest of your religious brothers and sisters will all be out of a job leaving the real scientists to do our work on what really counts.

I think atheists just like other religions sometimes tend to bend science toward it's own ideology. We can exchange proofs but that's not the point I'm trying to make.
Evolution, if true, doesn't automatically imply no God, it may conflict with some people's belief in creation, but you must take evolution past science to say it proves something just as abstract as god, no god.
I think people can believe what they like though, so I don't mind atheism.
Evolution can be proven.
God can not be proven.
Leprechauns can not be proven.

Yes, that does not disprove God. It also does not disprove Leprechauns.

Atheism is not a religion and evolution is not a gospel or something. Evolution describes how Earth's DNA used biological diversity to survive for 4.5 billion years. That is not my 'belief', it did not come to me after ingesting mushrooms or in a fever induced hallucination. I did not read it on a piece of toast, see it on a screen door or have it whispered in my ear by my Guardian Angel. That is the realm of religious revelation and you are welcome to it.

Evolution and atheism are both religions based on the opposite of the Word of The Living God. In other words Satanic in origin. Worshipping at the altar of utter ignorance.

Atheism requires faith to believe there is no God or can you prove it?
Evolution requires even more faith, it may describe but does not prove, or can you prove it?
What you claim is not your belief means you must know; How do you know? Where is the evidence? When will you post it?

Atheism I think also shares this abstract realm. Some Christians don't believe in religion either, only in their god. Perhaps maybe with Atheism that realm is occupied by no god instead of one. Evolution is only a theory in Science not cold hard undisputable truth. Evolution can be part of an Atheists doctrine, it's not for others to deny them. Atheists too can be as zealous in their beliefs as much as some in other religions.
