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.

The only people who laugh are those who are ignorant. So no, if a fool laughs at the wise the fool looks even more foolish but the wise looks wiser.

Logical fallacy. I can still laugh at you and be right.

Galileo was imprisoned by the pope. The pope was at first sympathetic, until the other church leaders complained, then he began to demand that Galileo cease promoting his theory. Galileo responded by putting his work in a satirical, hypothetical work. That is when the pope ordered him arrested and imprisoned.
He was never in a prison.

"Under the sentence of imprisonment Galileo remained till his death in 1642. It is, however, untrue to speak of him as in any proper sense a "prisoner". As his Protestant biographer, von Gebler, tells us, "One glance at the truest historical source for the famous trial, would convince any one that Galileo spent altogether twenty-two days in the buildings of the Holy Office (i.e. the Inquisition), and even then not in a prison cell with barred windows, but in the handsome and commodious apartment of an official of the Inquisition." For the rest, he was allowed to use as his places of confinement the houses of friends, always comfortable and usually luxurious. It is wholly untrue that he was as is constantly stated either tortured or blinded by his persecutors though in 1637, five years before his death, he became totally blind or that he was refused burial in consecrated ground. On the contrary, although the pope (Urban VIII) did not allow a monument to be erected over his tomb, he sent his special blessing to the dying man, who was interred not only in consecrated ground, but within the church of Santa Croce at Florence.
http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/06342b.htm

His satirical work placed the pope in the position of a fool even though the pope was a long time personal friend of Galileo.

if you claim to be a wise man, it surely means that you don't know.

I just love the way the evolutionists have to trey to redefines the meaning of words to fit there theory and try to make it fact, here is some news to you tag team member number 5 evolution is a theory it will remain unproven because it is a theory based on the writings of the atheist faithful.
Evolution is a theory. But so are the theory of gravity, the theory of statistical mechanics, the theory of light, the theory of quantum mechanics, etc. In science, the pinnacle is a theory: a hypothesis that has been tested and found to agree with the data.

I think that it's usually foolish to make claims about one's knowledge or abilities in forums like Topix where the best way to make them known is to make use of them. Writing cogent and insightful posts about a subject is all that is required to establish credibility. Writing ones that reflect a lack of understanding cannot be countered by claiming expertise. Unfortunately for Colin, he's been doing just that while denigrating others whose posts actually do reflect deeper understandings of logic and science, constantly eroding his own credibility in the process. To his credit, though, he has not sunk to the depths that many believers do here by resorting to infantile attacks on those with whom he disagrees.

I've seen ad hominem attacks from Colin, but none of them have resorted idiotic assumptions about his opponent's lives or playground taunts. But I tend to skip over the end of posts that are making no sense, so if a post doesn't begin with insults (which usually makes me instantly skip over to the next one), I could easily miss them. And I've begun skipping Colin's posts altogether as he clearly has nothing to say that is worth the time it takes to read it, so I'll defer to you on this point.
