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

Oh I see, I have yet to hear of a shot being fired that went over the Internet and came out of the computer on the end just where it was intended.

But a science nut could be seen believing this.

They didn't know sunlight comes from the sun, and moonlight is just reflected sun light. They didn't know plants need light and heat to grow. They thought the earth was flat. They didn't know about DNA.

Could be. Doesn't change the fact that plants need heat and light to grow.
How about providing some evidence god exists?
Nope, you're Wrong but nice try.

So you are really so low IQ that you think metal and medal is the same thing? Nope. Not even you are that stupid. Close but not quite. Have you ever seen a boat made from medals? A car? Anything? Nope and you know it.

Regardless Your Christianity has taught you to wish to kill those who don't believe in your imaginary god. It has made you into a violent person. This is the morality your Christianity has presented in you. Shoot someone in the head, your words btw, if they do not believe in your zombie Jew.

Christian morality for all to see.

I don't really know the answer to that, no one does ... yet. But since it has never been created nor destroyed, it might well be eternal.

That's the same claim you make of your God ... so if it can be true of your God .... what is this God of yours "made of" or "comprised of" anyway?? Hmmmm???? Maybe the same stuff the entire universe is made of? Pure ENERGY?!?! Imagine that!! If that were true, AND the entire universe is made of Energy ... why was this God needed again???

If energy comprises the entire universe and everything in it and it has always existed, no creator is required.

Indeed you are. And it is a shame your religion has turned you into this foul animal who wishes to kill those who do not believe as you do. I have said belief in god retards you and certainly you are very retarded because of your belief in god.

Just don't go on a shooting spree at an elementary school or mall ok?

Technically, an "explosion" is a rapid combustion of a fuel.

In that light, the "Big Bang" was clearly not an explosion.

The "Big Bang" was an extremely rapid expansion of the universe's 3 dimensions (maybe even 4 dimensions). The terms "Big Bang" and "explosion" are used as a conceptual "simile" or "metaphor".

But why bother explaining that to you, obviously you are far too simple to comprehend.

Don't feel bad no body has that answer.
I'm glad you have no problem believing something was always and will be always.

Your believes are not that different then mine in this respect.

As far as what God is made out of I don't know. Maybe pure energy!

I just listed a few science articles claiming it was the biggest bang of all.

There are hundreds of them on the web.

However I'm aware of the non explosion rapid expansion model also.

There are also many other Theory's on the beginning of the universe.
