Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,385

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

What is more logical, to believe one explanation for everything or separate theory's for each little step?

The Big Bang
1) when nothing exploded creating everything.
2) when a singularity (that came from?) blew up creating everything
3) a bouncing universe (that started when?)

Spontaneous life
1) rain falling on rocks created life

Evolution
1) one speck of life mutating to form all life that ever was and is alive today.

Separate theories of course. Let me out it to you in terms you understand. Let's compare science to Walmart. At your Walmart you greet people at the door. Next they walk past the produce guy who you envy. Later they pay at the cash register and speak to the floor supervisor. When that person can't assist them they go to the head manager.

Now while all under the Walmart umbrella there is a major difference between a door greeter, like yourself and the head manager, the guy who barely glances at you when he comes in. Each person represents a different department and function.

Now switch out Walmart for science, the Big Bang with door greeter and so on.

There is no evidence for god. No logical reason to even entertain the idea there is one until you come up with some evidence for one.

Putting it mildly yes. I do not wish to be nothing more then an animal. No meaning to life, no difference between me and Hitler or Ted Bundy or any other scum bag that walks the planet.
Ya no thanks you go right ahead with out me.
As an animal, a primate and an ape, I can promise you that the meaning to ones life does not come from a book wherein a god is so feeble as to be beaten in war by the addition of the iron chariot to the foes arms.

Instead it comes from personal choices as to what enriches ones own life. If the biblical meaning of life is sufficient for you, go for it. But me, I want more than not living now, so that I might possibly be rewarded with an endless existence in praise of a hateful monster.

If there is to be any difference between who you are and who Bundy and Hitler were, wouldn't you have been the one to make that difference. I haven't ever murdered anyone, but if you are going to because you have chosen to hang out with atheist who will educate you as to the contradictions of your bible and it's imaginary god, then maybe you shouldn't be here in these forums. You can better serve your god by not seeing what we will show you.

One of us might show you where the bible god takes it on himself to threaten to make you eat your children. I promise that once you see it in the bible, you can't unsee it.

I want my current life, for the current one it is the only one any of us will have. The unseen after death existence is not real. You won't get it any more than the villager hurled into a volcanao, serves to quiet the gods anger, soon another villager will be needed, nothing is accomplished. Do you get that? Well all gods are the same in that respect, whatever man has claimed them to be able to do, none can, nor ever will.

Does not matter MUQ is amoral.
MUQ and the religion MUQ believes in condone:
Rape
Murder
Genocide
Any atrocities that are done in the name of their god.
For that reason alone anyone such as MUQ (MUCK) should be ignored except in defense of ones self or family.
I disagree, ignoring further facilitates their dementia and crimes. I say out them at every oppertunity.

Along with rape and murder, don't forget "thighing". That is the using of any human infant (children are included) as a masturbation toy, at anytime after the infant has left the safety of the mother's womb.

Rape as they define it,(vaginal penetration only) is discouraged, but not really denied them, though it is punished (sort of), for if the vagina of the infant is torn during the thighing, the penis wielder must pay for reconstructive surgery) of this as yet unwed girl child's father's torn piece of property. Penetration of both oral and anal orifices, and contact with any part of the bodies of both male and female infants is not only allowed but even encouraged among some Muslim family's. The men using these babies for (to them) this harmless sexual pastime are usually older brothers, cousins, uncles, and close family friends. A stranger can't just wander in from the street and choke a newborn boy by making him swallow sperm.

You see I look at things like this. We have a fused chromosome number 2 no animal in the ape family has that. I see that as proof we are not related you see it as proof we are related. Which sounds more ridicules? Does it matter? You're not changing your views and I'm not changing mine.
Biology and biological science don't care if it's against your "believe."

You're human, and remarkable for it, but still a great ape. There's no getting around that you are an animal species, the product of evolution like every other species on the planet.

You can really, really, really believe otherwise and that's cute and all, but at the end of the day, you have all of those traits that Polymath laboriously typed out for you.

Since you don't understand how DNA works, your views on chromosome 2 aren't more interesting than a kinder-gardener's views on world politics.

Are you going to say that Non Muslims evolved from apes and Muslims from Swine?

What happens when a Non Muslims accepts Islam? The genes of apes are transported into Swine?

And what happens when a Muslims leaves islam and joins Non Muslims, his "swine parts" change into ape form?

Vow !! is this a Newest Theory of Counter Evolution?

Since you think there would be proof that you are a primate in your blood, you can't take the chance on it being found out right? Would your religion of peace buddies, stone you to death, if you had your DNA mapped?
And no one is fully evolved, we all continue to evolve.
Chicken out? Did some people evolved from Chicken also? You make a very interesting post.

And as for as your comment that every one is evolving, may be you are still in your primate or semi ape like stage.

Because reason is the "only thing" missing from your posts.

I see how you can relate to a Walmart greeter. Is that your full time job?

You comparing Walmart to science is a good fit though.

There is evidence of a Big Bang, and evidence for evolution. People came up with those ideas because of the evidence.

Please show me something I don't know about the Bible.

You might prefer learning science though.

"A fossilized human skull was found in coal that was sold in Germany (mid-1800s). A jawbone of a child was found in coal in Tuscany (1958). Two giant human molars were found in Montana (1926). A human leg was found by a West Virginia coal miner. It had changed into coal.�pp. 34-35.

A woman, in Illinois, reportedly found a gold chain in a chunk of coal which broke open (1891). A small steel cube was found in a block of coal in Austria (1885). An iron pot was found in coal in Oklahoma (1912). A woman found a child's spoon in coal (1937).�p. 35.

In 1944 Newton Anderson claimed to have found this bell inside a lump of coal that was mined near his house in West Virginia. When Newton dropped the lump it broke, revealing a bell encased inside.

What is a brass bell with an iron clapper doing in coal that is supposed to be hundreds of

millions of years old? According to Norm Scharbough's book Ammunition (which includes a compilation of many such "coal anecdotes") the bell was extensively analyzed at the University of Oklahoma and it was found to contain an unusual mixture of metals, different from any modern usage. Photo and text from Genesis Park.

Man-made objects in rock.

An iron nail was found in a Cretaceous block from the Mesozoic era (mid-1800s). A gold thread was found in stone in England (1844). An iron nail was found in quartz in California (1851). A silver vessel was found in solid rock in Massachusetts (1851).

The mold of a metal screw was found in a chunk of feldspar (1851). An intricately carved and inlaid metal bowl was found in solid rock (1852). An iron nail was found in rock in a Peruvian mine by Spanish conquistadores (1572).�pp. 35-36."
