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

so much for atheist influence in England?
We have a lot of believers in belief here. But theists are definately in a minority.

America has more of a Christian influence in politics tradition and culture than atheism?
You are correct in your description of killings.
Dr. Martin Luther Kings movement was Christian.
Your train of thought doesn't make all stops, does it?

America has had all sorts of influences, for better or worse, not just your two.

Thank you.

Not all atheists kill believers and not all believers kill believers, etc.

By definition believers will imagine their "reality" is preferable, often with no thought for others.

Atheists have killed believers and believers have killed atheists, atheists have killed atheists and believers have killed believers, why anyone would imagine that any one of those realities is preferable to another is just odd.

And there aren't atheists guilty of the very same sin or is their identical behavior more acceptable somehow? Which it isn't.

CAN SOMEONE SUCCINCTLY STATE THE BASIC TENETS OF THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION?
It would be a useful starting point.
Yes, it would but it never stops there. The trolls with their myriad creationist myths, want to nit pick details that they don't even understand.

How can you debate with someone who denies fossil evidence? They can't even comprehend something they can hold in their hands and see as real.

Your challenge is absurd ... "proving Evolution" (to you) by way of Topix posts. Why should anyone waste their time? Your faith clearly protects you from absorbing many facts. Simply admit that your faith is unfounded, that what you know about your deity you read in books written by mortal men and we can call the matter closed.
The above response clearly proves the following. 1) RHill cannot prove the myth (lie) of evolution is true. 2) RHill has serious doubts concerning evolution. 3) RHILL clearly knows very little about my faith. 4)RHILL seems to thing that some myth (lie) of evolution authors are immortal.

<quoted text> The list you provided doesn't say any such thing. In fact, it gives evolution as one of the bases. Why are you being dishonest again?
My list does not, my list is a list of biological fields nothing more. It does not mention the myth (lie) of evolution. Yes I took the list from wiki and I acknowledged that in the opening line of the post. So once again no dishonesty from me.

Once again, you mistake reason and science for a religion. Religion is the system that makes assumptions without proof and asks people to believe in spite of their senses. Evolution is simply the fact that species change over geological time and Darwinism is one particular explanation for those changes.
So you claim that the myth (lie) of evolution is fact. Are you going to take up my challenge with this new found confidence. I am looking forward to reading your published paper.

Very true, although religions try desperately to convince people otherwise.
Yes many religious groups are trying to tell the brainwashed masses the the myth (lie) of evolution is just that a myth ( lie).

Religious faith is quite different than day-to-day confidence (which can also be called faith).
OK, give me a test that would convince you that you are wrong if you are. I can think of many tests that would convince me that I am wrong. None of them have worked out that way.
You want me to think of a test that would convince me that I am wrong...... why would I do that. True faith is faith in the unseen do you have faith in magnetism.

You know so little about YHVH God of Israel. Both of those you define above will be very sad at judgment.

Really? I always think of California or Alaska when I think stateside earthquake zones. How severe and how often do you folks get shaken up? Might be willing to trade our 'canes for your quakes.
We've hosted 3 of the top 20 earthquakes in US History, but that was 200 years ago, not much population to disturb. Some say we're overdue for a repeat.

Here in the bootheel of Missouri, we can ring the church bells in Boston and make the Mississippi River appear to run backwards for 8 days while it drains off to form the Reelfoot Lakes.

We get shaken every 3 to 5 years....lots of lighter tremors that are only detected by seismographs:

BTW, I live about an hour and a half drive from a little town named New Madrid;0)

Still wanna trade?
