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.

I wonder why he's so coy about his cult.

I have no need to defend what I know is 100% factual, and that is they YHVH God of Israel created everything. I have laid down a challenge are you going to accept it or not. Be honest if you can.
Your challenge was answered 160 years ago. You have no facts to speak of and no support for your silly creationism. Hence, your challenge is just a house of cards - no substance whatsoever.

And that's why you're incapable of laying down any kind of theoretical framework for creationism. Because it doesn't have one and is utterly worthless at explaining biological phenomena.

I quit posting to this handwaving fuckwit about 100 pages ago. I think it's about time to give this simpleton the troll treatment from everyone.

Name me just one real scientist who make the claim that the myth (lie) of evolution is 100% indisputable fact. Just one please.
Every single biological scientist acknowledges that evolution is, in layman's terms, fact. Not a single biological paper in any academic journal in the past 50 years has been published that attempts to invoke creationism.

Note - in layman's terms. You have repeatedly demonstrated an inability to comprehend the language of science, so I'm using ordinary language.

Now, to name a few (it would be impossible for me to list every biological scientist): S J Gould, Ernst Mayer, W. D. Haldane, Trivers, Farmer, etc., etc.

Now try to find a single research paper invoking creationism in an academic biological journal. Just one.

I skimmed through his list and I saw only one geologist.
I can see him now in his class discussing the age of the Earth with his students.
"Is the earth only 6000 years old?" asks one of the students.
"The opinion is divided" says the professor.
"All the other geologists say it's older - I say it isn't"
(borrowed from BlackAdder)
Oh yeah, I think there was only one paleontologist in that list as well.
hahaha!

You can bet they don't conduct research in geology or paleontology. They probably work in the oil field - Buck Crick actually claimed Dembski was a scientist because he worked as a geophysicist in the oil business! hahahaha!

I'm really just killing time... my nice computer is in the shop and I've got this crappy little netbook that I don't really want to do too much work on. Oh, well.

Hello Mad! I miss you lots and lots!

"NAME THE SCIENTISTS AND JOURNALS WHERE THEY HAVE PUBLISHED"?????

Take your Dr Geoff Downes for example. He is an expert in wood quality for saw mill operations. What does he know about the theory of evolution and what articles has he published in peer reviewed journals on the subject of the theory of evolution? Present the articles on this topic he has published in peer reviewed science journals of pubmed quality!!!! LOLLLLLL

LOLLLLL

COLIN-THE-Denier throws out a meaningless list of names without the journal article citations!!!

POSTING A LIST OF NAMES IS NOT 100% PROOF OF ANYTHING. Where are the articles in the peer-reviewed journals like I asked you, you scumbag!!!

In those long lists, there must be more than a few published articles by these clowns in peer-reviewed journals that provide proof of their rejection of the theory of evolution. Cite those articles!!! I think you are a liar and know you are a liar and a fraud!!! The Lord They God will despatch you to Hell and Damnation for your arrogance, pride and lies, you fraud!!!!

If they accept "verbatim" the Biblical description of Creation, then they are neither Doctors, Nor Scientists, they are just Bible Thumpers!!

Each of them must provide "some apology for the way and words used in the book of Genesis"!!

Muq you have been warned about posting these insane walls of text again and again. Here is what you need to do to avoid being reported for mass deletion of all your posts.
Leave a brief summary of your spam and then post a link to the website where you are getting your of topic spam.
Also you need to start participating in the conversation by actually answering a question every once in a while like when will Muslim mutilation of female genitals end, why do you believe in a holy she-camel, and do you think Muslim suicide bombers go to heaven?
If you do not cease the obnoxious walls of text spam you leave us no choice but to report you.

And I war you, you seem to be acting "like a Bully and strong arm man" on this thread.

Who gave you "Authority" to speak like that?

is it YOUR thread, do you own it, do you monitor it?

Do whatever you like, it is a public thread and I post my views in civil words.

if that is what you will report to me for, go ahead.

I wonder there are so many people on this thread and no one speaks to this "Bully"?

Why every one acts like dumb and moot?

So, did Jesus really exist? With his new book, Did Jesus Exist? The Historical Argument for Jesus of Nazareth, Bart Ehrman, historian and professor of religious studies at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill, wanted to provide solid historical evidence for the existence of Jesus.

"I wanted to approach this question as an historian to see whether that's right or not," Ehrman tells weekends on All Things Considered host Guy Raz.

The answer is straightforward and widely accepted among scholars of all faiths, but Ehrman says there is a large contingent of people claiming that Jesus never did exist. These people are also known as mythicists.

"It was a surprise to me to see how influential these mythicists are," Ehrman says. "Historically, they've been significant and in the Soviet Union, in fact, the mythicist view was the dominant view, and even today, in some parts of the West – in parts of Scandinavia — it is a dominant view that Jesus never existed," he says.

Mythicists' arguments are fairly plausible, Ehrman says. According to them, Jesus was never mentioned in any Roman sources and there is no archeological evidence that Jesus ever existed. Even Christian sources are problematic – the Gospels come long after Jesus' death, written by people who never saw the man.

"Most importantly," he explains, "these mythicists point out that there are Pagan gods who were said to die and rise again and so the idea is that Jesus was made up as a Jewish god who died and rose again."

In his book, Ehrman marshals all of the evidence proving the existence of Jesus, including the writings of the apostle Paul.

I used to think that Jesus was a fictional character based on a real person, sort of like Santa is based on St. Nicholas. But this site makes me wonder if Jesus is totally made up.

SO, THERE IS NO PROOF JESUS EXISTED, CERTAINLY NOWHERE CLOSE TO 100%!!!

Poor Colin-the-bowel-movement is out of luck!!! The same 100% proof standard he demands of science cannot be sustained for his claims for the fairy tale deity he thinks is the hidden hand behind all wars, pestilence, diarrhea, birth, life and death!!!
