Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,391

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

Cool. You're from Glasgow. Liar in the concept of atheism in general. Show me proof or evidence that God does not exist.

The Exodus is known to be false by archaeology which tells us that the Israelites arose locally in Canaan; they did not emigrate from Egypt. There is also no evidence of millions of people wandering the desert.

Joshua and Jericho is known to be false by archaeology that confirms that the city had been ruined long before Joshua supposedly got there.
"Adam and Eve are a genetic impossibility. Having only two people is a genetic bottleneck that cannot be overcome."

But yet all life that ever lived or is living plant and animal all came from the first auto spontaneous life speck!

Do you have a clue how stupid your statement is?

"genetic bottleneck" Adam and Eve had perfect DNA designed to populated the whole planet by God. He knows how to create a breeding pair of anything that is capable of populating the planet. You dictating laws to God, I'm sure am glad you shared your knowledge with God.

Sara had a baby past her 100th birthday and you know what? The baby didn't have Down syndrome! How about them apples?

This is not an article on the Bible, religion, or even atheism. It is one on historical fiction. Fiction is not accurate. The Bible is. Real events which happened to real people in the Bible CAN be proven by science, history, archeology, genealogy. Fact. Irregardless of whether or not you believe in the moral teachings thereof. This isn't Aesop's Fables here, people (which IS fiction) This is a very real historically accurate record of documentation. End of story. Their is no disputing that. You're belief is still based upon illogical lies seeing as how you cannot prove that there is no God. Not only can you not prove it, but science itself calls you a liar in that it can prove the existence of God. Which it has done again and again. A bit of logic you tend to want to ignore.

The hell I haven't! Mankind has proven it repeatedly. It's not our fault that you choose to believe a lie. Don't put that off on us. That's all you. Scroll up. Look at the links I included. Google it. Wiki it. YouTube it. I don't care. But don't sit there and call the multitude of scientific evidence, which disproves your belief, a lie. That's ridiculous! The fact is you CAN'T prove that God does not exist. Your belief is FALSE, and you are the one who is the liar.

Wrong. There is plenty (sound, scientific, archeological) evidence to prove the existence of God. You are the one who chooses not to believe it. The lack of belief in God is false and unscientific. You're right about one thing, though. I do reject your claims because they do lack evidence. My belief in a living God has already been proven repeatedly. You are the one who can't produce a shred of credible proof.

It's unknown how the first life on Earth began.

It is known that all life was not created in a single six-day event.

I don't have to. Science already has. Don't believe me? Look it up yourself. The facts are all there. Not my fault if you choose to ignore them. Atheism is a lie and a falsehood devoid of any substantial proof to back up its belief that there is no God. None. Not one single shred of evidence. Science isn't the liar here. You are.

I could just as easily take all those "proofs" that you offer, and claim they "prove" the existence of Zeus, Thor or Isis. No, you have not proven the existence of god. You cannot.
Dipshit, I just opened this account this week. The hell you think you're lying to? I have presented you with links proving, from a scientific standpoint, that God is real. You can't even prove your belief that there is no God. For years atheists have spouted off the same ignorant drivel. You're wrong. You've always been wrong. And science has repeatedly proven it to be so.

And, NO, you have NOT provided any scientific evidence for any deity. Do you even understand the concept of verifiable evidence?

Look, quite simply I consider your claim that your particular god exists to be no different that the Hindu claim that Vishnu, Brahma, and Shiva exist. They have their holy book, you have yours. Why don't you show me proof that Shiva doesn't exist.
Atheism - The theory or belief that God does not exist. Do you even know what you believe? Cause you just contradicted yourself. The evidence is there. It's been presented to you by the scientific community for years and years. If you still don't wanna believe then that's fine. Just don't piss on my leg and tell me it's raining. Your lack of belief in a living God is a lie. Prove me wrong. What evidence do you have to support the fact that God doesn't exist? You can't prove your belief. There is none. Your belief is a lie. Your word is false.

If, as you say, "science has already proven the existence of god", you should have NO problem backing up that claim to with a link to an actual peer reviewed scientific jouurnal article that supports your claim. I know you can't that is why you are constantly doging the request! Why is it that you expext documented evidence from all those you pose your lame questions to, yet offer nothing but hot air in reponse to questions concerning claims YOU are making??? Put up or shut up!
(BTW... I'm not really expecting that you will/can back up your claim... but hey. you might be the first!)

No, you have not. You have not posted a single link to a *scientific* article in a *refereed* journal making this claim, let alone proving it.

You are now an established liar.
You can't even prove your belief that there is no God.
Once again, the burden of proof is on the one making the existence claim. There is no more proof that there is no God than there is that there are no gnomes in my backyard. But it is reasonable to disbelieve both unless proof of existence is given.
For years atheists have spouted off the same ignorant drivel. You're wrong. You've always been wrong. And science has repeatedly proven it to be so.
You lie.

Great. Another theists who claims to know what an atheist is better than the atheists. Such hubris.

"Atheism is, in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities." (Wikipedia) "Atheism: a disbelief in the existence of deity" (Webster), etc.

A-theism literally is "without theism". Nothing more can be said that includes all atheists. It is a category to define any one and every one who does not fit into the category of theism.

Until you understand this, you will continue to be seen as just another hateful person intent on displaying your bigotry.

Please attempt to keep a civil tongue in your head. Your language is not appreciated and may lead you to be banned.
You may have opened THIS account recently, but either you have doppelgangers about or you have had other accounts in the past.
The few links I have found in your previous posts do not link to any credible scientific journals or other sources.
Once again, you cannot prove the existence of god, nor disprove the existence of god. I have not stated my personal beliefs on the subject, nor will I. It is none of your business. However, you have placed your personal beliefs on the table for examination. That would mean you are amenable to having those beliefs dissected and handled by others; if you are not happy with your personal beliefs being examined and doubted, then you should withdraw them from this discussion. To place something under the microscope of science is to subject it to doubt. If it cannot be proven, nor disproven - as the existence of any sort of "higher power" or diety - then you can only say "we do not know". We can have theories, some of which can be proven or disproven, but that does not mean that we "know".
There has never been, nor will there ever likely be, proof of the existence or absence of god, unless you count absence of proof to be proof of absence. Are you saying that those who believe in gods other than the one you choose to believe in are wrong? Can you "prove" that? No, you cannot. The bible is no more or less accurate than the Vedas, or any other holy text. Just because a lot of people believe something does not make it true.
Belief that the world was flat, or that the sun and stars circled the earth, did not make those things so. Belief in a worldwide flood does not mean it happened. Belief in "adam and eve" does not make them historical figures.
If you do not want to read criticism of your ideas, do not place them on Topix. I only put what I am willing to share on here. My own beliefs are nobody's business, and I have no need to try to prove or disprove any of them. However, I will gladly dissect your beliefs and any proof you wish to submit to the Topix forum for review. Please, prove away. As long as you are prepared to back your proofs up with facts. I wait with 'bated breath.
