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.

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.
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.

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.
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.

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.

You lie.
Those articles were written by scientists and theologians alike. PROVE to me that he doesn't exist and expose me for the charlatan you believe me to be.

The only bigotry I see here is your own. Call the deity whatever you choose. It's still a lack of belief in it.

Do you even read your own material? This guy is not looking for evidence of a global flood. He is looking for evidence of a regional flood that may have mistaken for a global flood and for something that might be the source of the ark legend.

In short, he views the bible as a book of fables and he is looking for a basis for these fables as they might have been retold by ancient goat herders.

This does not support your Buy Bull stories in the least.

Say you're the intelligent one right?
What was here before the Big Bang?
How did spontaneous life start?
How did all life evolve from one speck the very first speck of life to ever live?
How did a singularity defy gravity and expand to become our universe?
If the universe is 13.7 billion yeas old how come we can see galaxy 13.3 billion light years away when we all know that the universe is grow further apart at an increased speed yet still no way is the explanation close to the speed of light, how did it get out there so far in the given amount of time?
Your faith has some questions to answer.
There will always be questions about the origin of life, the universe and everything people can't answer. Some of the answers might even be beyond human comprehension. But, that doesn't mean that "Zap! God did it!". Since there is no evidence at all god exists, there is no need to even entertain the idea that he does. We can dismiss the creation myth in the book of Genesis, because it is full of absurdities.
There is evidence for the Big Bang. There is evidence for evolution.

I hear what you say, but many atheists (like myself) were once theists. We do a little more than assume. Not trying to argue, just saying.
Personally, I think the atheists are former theists who were paying attention during the sermons and while reading the literature. Just sayin ...

You've got nothing. Some misinterpreted news stories, some oral reference to grainy satellite photos that you can't find links too.

I bet you believe all those grainy photos of the sky with dot's on them are proof of alien visitors as well.

Articles not informative enough? Google it yourself, dude. I'm not your momma.
Actually, the articles were very informative. You claimed the Ark had been found. You claimed the articles you linked to said the Ark had been found. BUT...

The one in Christianity Today said:
""Ballard says it would be "foolish" to expect to discover Noah's Ark itself. "

And the one in the Huffington Post said:
"A previous headline on this story suggested that Ballard believed he found evidence of Noah's Ark. He only found evidence of the flood."

Care to discuss that?
Didn't think so...

How much evidence do you need, woman?! Perhaps it's not the evidence you seek. Only another attempt to debunk it. The Bible mentions a flood. This article shows evidence if it. End of story. I presented you with evidence of truth. Scientific proof of the Bible's historical accuracy. Feel free to believe, or not believe, whatever you want.
ANY evidence will make a good starting place. ANY evidence they found the Ark, as you claimed.

*genuinely shocked* Is that what you really think? That all us Christians are living in the lap of luxury somewhere condemning all ye sinners? That we have never experienced loss or suffered in any way? Friend, that is simply not so. I am the product of an incestuous rape. My mother had me at 16, and still managed to graduate high school with honors. Despite being called a whore and a sinner or the brokenness and pain she felt at the time. She had her choices yet she chose to give birth to me anyway. Even after the doc told her I'd be born retarded at best. It was her belief in something greater than herself that brought her through it. My stepfather molested me and abused me my whole life. I was raped as an adult. I am not a wealthy person. Just a middle class American trying to make it day by day. Nobody ever gave me shit. I got here by working my ass off.
More unsubstantiated testimonials (aka fairy tales)... still nothing.

They are NOT scientific articles in scientific journals. They are the *personal opinions* of some scientists. You have already been exposed as a charlatan by claiming there is scientific proof where there is not.

There isn't any.

History was passed down by word of mouth for generations long before we started writing it down in our history books. That doesn't disprove anything. Josephus, a renowned Jewish historian, wrote about Noah's ark. As well as many many other things written in the Bible. He wasn't a scholar. He wasn't a Rabbi. He was a HISTORIAN. Hell Plato (the Greek philosopher. remember him?) even wrote about the location of Atlantis. Guess how he heard about it's whereabouts. Word of mouth. You gonna call him a liar too?
Do they have satellite images of Atlantis, too?

Lol Dumbass! Now you're just grasping at straws. Harry potter was a book written by a person who knew about the existence of king's cross because they had seen it, heard about it, whatever. Noah's ark, or at the very least the proof of a great flood, has been found and written about (just like in the Bible) thereby proving that it did indeed take place. Same thing. This only goes to prove the authenticity of the Bible. Not disprove it. Also the characters in Harry potter were fictional characters. The "characters" in the Bible are real. The proof is in the genealogy. Jews and Muslims alike can trace their genealogy back to Isaac and Ishmael, two Biblical brothers, who are viewed as the patriarchs of these two religions. Ancient biblical ruins still exist in Israel which prove the Bible is real. You can see them. You can touch them. Hell you can even walk through some. It's not that the facts aren't there. It's just that you choose not to see them. And that's okay. Just don't expect to sit there and tell me it's not real. Cause I'll call you a liar to your face.
I can go to Baker's Street in London, does that prove Sherlock Holmes is an historical figure? People "tracing" their genealogies only proves that people believe that crap. The Buy-bull is full of absurdities.
