Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: News24

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.

Lol another religion may disprove no god too, using its own doctrines. Disproving another doesn't necessarily means proving mine, does it?
If your God is the Abrahamic God, that one is easily disproven.

You really are a dumbazz, aren't you? Dumbazz!!

Their "adaptations" also have nothing to do with how they prove evolution.

Maybe you should try moving your lips while you read this time, maybe it will help.

Ok Insults aside show how other than their inbuilt ability to adapt how do they prove the myth (lie) of evolution. Give it your best shot.

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.
Home-Schooled means HOME schooled. Home schooled with a college degree is another whole bucket of fish. When one says home-schooled in this day and age, it indicates that is all the schooling one has had.

Why do you now want to be ugly? I have not been ugly to you. All I have done is give accurate information on some of the people on your list.

Maybe you should have made it clear what you understood home schooling to be.

My list was a list of those who were home schooled you choose to include university and college education in that which is not included under the home schooled banner now or yesterday. You claimed that no scientist or mathematician were home schooled I posted a very long list that proved you wrong.

Yes you did, it goes like this "and God made RHill and removed his brain, then said that will do I have just made an evolutionist for my people to laugh at. And God looked and said that good"

Most people who brag about a triple digit IQ actually have a double digit IQ, it makes them feel better.
I would also guess that the double digits would match up with a comfortable room temperature;0)

I always knew you worshipers at the foot of Baal could not handle the truth, much like you love for the myth (lie) of evolution.

Isn't atheism a religion too? A faith in no god. Doctrines that there is no god or supreme beings outside electric signals interpreted by the brain. Limited to each persons reality their senses show them, refusing possibilities of anything more..that kind of sounds like faith to me..
We can use science as a ruler to measure what is valid or plausible but it's a ruler you cant take past what senses can't sense, so a leap of faith is needed, god or no god? What do you believe in?
No, atheism means without belief in a god, a lack of belief you might say. There is no atheistic doctrine and wherever you're going with electric signals makes no sense whatsoever. No faith required.

We also use science....period. We do not speculate about the use of magic by invisible, untouchable, unverifiable supernatural forces.

I, personally, believe in facts. The rainbow cannot be verified as a promise made by a god....that's a simple myth. The rainbow can be empirically proven to be a refraction of light. Either way it's still as beautiful.

Do you have a better understanding now?

Isn't atheism a doctrine that believes in no god? Perhaps a lack of belief in a god, but still a belief in no god. Lol once you get the whole electric signal thing you might understand the limits of reality as far as the senses can go.
It's good you believe in facts, as I do, yes a rainbow is beautiful. It may be as you say a refraction of light in droplets in the sky, that's fine. But to go from that to use it in your doctrines as proof of no god I think requires an element of faith.

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.
In my humble opinion, atheism occupies the physical realm. That which can be seen, touched, smelled, heard or tasted is verifiably real. Belief, with or without organized religion occupies the so called sixth sense's realm.

Evolution is a scientific posit (with proof, I can hold a fossil in my hand) which really has nothing to do with any belief or philosophy of any kind. It does happen to upset some preconceived religious notions, but it makes no attempt to prove or disprove a god.

Since there is no atheistic doctrine that I know of, Evolution cannot be a part of it. There are many atheists and many different opinions. Since we do not gather there is no central core, atheists simply lack belief in a deity. Other than that, any other shared viewpoints are coincidental.

Atheists hold belief in no god, and a Christian in having only one god. Both talk about a place outside reality doesn't it? Seeing nothing doesn't prove there's nothing beyond the horizon. Seeing nothing doesn't also prove there is something beyond the horizon. So what's beyond? No god, a god, many gods? That might depend what you have faith in..
Why would I think there is nothing beyond the horizon? I am not a flat earther. It has been my consistant experience that whenever I drive my Jeep that I always move forward....the horizon doesn't stop at the next hill or the next valley. It has also been my consistant experience that the sun dispels the darkness every morning. That is cold, hard fact.

Gods are NOT cold, hard facts. It doesn't take faith or belief of any kind to discount a god.....there is no evidence and never has been. I also lack belief in Thor, Zeus, Isis and Puff The Magic Dragon....same as your god.
