Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,436

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

There because I called you a pin head that makes it a fact that you're a pin head.

You see, Mickey is more real than Jesus ever was or will be or is!!!
I have photographic proof of Micky and the Bible for God. You have to believe in the following with out proof.

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.

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.
Oh I understand but you obviously don't

A chromosome being fused in all humans is only proof that a common ancestor had it (Moses). Apes not having it does not proof we evolved from apes it's evidence that we may not have (we didn't).

Science calling me an ape is nothing more then name calling.

There is evidence of a Big Bang, and evidence for evolution. People came up with those ideas because of the evidence.
There is no proof for the following.

1) when nothing exploded creating everything.

Oh, it very easy for everybody to see based on the evidence you are presenting in this one post that you have absolutely no clue about any aspect of science.

That's much, MUCH easier to "swallow" than your statement without any evidence that it was all magically **poofed** into existence by some invisible sky deity.

There is a 1% difference in the DNA between humans and chimps.

SPONTANEOUS LIFE???

THEY TAUGHT YOU THAT SCIENCE SUPPORTS THE IDEA OF SPONTANEOUS LIFE???

Louis Pasteur proved about 100 years ago that there is no such thing as spontaneous generation of life with his swan-kneck flask experiment--I learnt that over 40 years ago!!! Where have you been?

Please go study some elementary and high school science before you take your dogmatic position of blissful ignorance!!! I bet you demand the best scientific medicine when you are sick, the same medical science you refute on here.

It's easier to swallow one god, but that doesn't make it true. Just more likely intellectually lazy people will believe "god did it all." despite a total lack of evidence of god's existence.

And in YOUR particular case, the difference is less than 0.001%!! While you can type, they cannot!!

By the way, there is only One Electron and Proton difference between Hydrogen and Helium , and they are so similar to each other, one could hardly distinguish between them and take them for identical twins!!

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.

WOW, YOU SOUND LIKE A NUT IN THE NUT-HOUSE.

When you nuts bring a block of coal intact today for examination not some piece of garbage from 1844 then someone might listen to your delusional drivel. The science that put people in space is the science that concludes that the best explanation currently in biology is evolution theory and the geo earth sciences say the earth is billions of years old, not 6,000 years like you nuts claim!!!
Your creationist museums are full of talking snakes and pregnant virgins and dead people getting up and walking about!!! LOLLLL

Yep and Langoliers is one of the most ignorant.

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.
To 'chicken out' means to withdraw from confrontation, because of fear.
Reason is not yours to define. If you have stopped evolving, you are dead and no longer reacting to any of life's defining factors. Like it or not you are ape, it is what every human is. That does not mean that you are a monkey, it means that both man and monkey are apes, and they also are primates.

Who said that?

BTW, there are many credible men and women of science whom are theists. You must also remember that scientists have the highest percentage of atheism than any other demographic in the USA.
