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.

If a nice by far to kind poster like RP offends you may I suggest you leave the atheism forums? RP shows your lot far more kindness and patience than I ever would.

You came her to troll so don't sob and cry when you get treated like a troll.

Kind? lol I'd hate to see what you think mean is. Scroll up and read the reason I reported her. It's clearly written, and had NOTHING to do with her belief in atheism. It had everything to do with her actions.

LMFAO! Seriously?! The fact that a person chooses to believe in the existence of God bothers you THIS much? Some things simply defy logic. You can't look at matters of the heart or people's various beliefs or feelings so analytically. Not everything is logical. Love for instance is illogical. You do believe in love right?
"Love" aka long-term-pair-bonding is beneficial in the formation of cohesive parental/familial units. It is within such units that the nurturing of nascent large-brained hominids so completely depend. Humans are quite helpless for years after birth. Hell, I've seen teenagers that can't operate a can opener. Takes a lot of "love" to make functional human beings. Love is no gift ... it's a necessary component of what we are. Evolution and Momma Nature provides as much (or as little) "love" as required to get the job done.

Or blame God when things go wrong? As a believer in a higher power, we choose to believe that God is watching over us. That he ordains the footsteps of the righteous, and that he sends his angels to watch over us. We trust him to lead and guide us through our every day lives. Thanking him is simply a form of worship.
Certainly, our big-brains and super-intelligence helps us weave a path through the slings and arrows of outrageous misfortune. What differentiates our own "internal dialog" from the murmured tips of a Guardian Angel or the small, still voice of a whispering deity? I'd say it's the difference between being sane and ... somewhat less so.

In any case ... big brains, high intelligence, long nurturing period, love, self-made "luck" ... living long enough and successfully enough to gift the species with your own (supposedly) viable genetic package ... you got no one to thank for that. Nature and evolution demonstrate their fallibility with us humans. We are so good at what we do ... we're suffocating the planet. Gee ... thanks.

Lol Yeah. That's precisely why I married my husband. I wanted to form a pack in case anything in our subdivision decided to attack me. I wanted safety in numbers. Thus our reasoning behind having kids. Strengthening the pack. Maybe later we'll go running through the woods together like real hunter gatherers. Cause going to the grocery store is just too overrated.
You don't think you are a member of a "pack"!?!? LOL

It doesn't bother me that you don't believe in God. Your life choices don't affect me at all. What does bother me, however, is the level of aggression with which you prove your point. There's absolutely NO need for that.
You don't want to hear about the archeological or historical discoveries that verify what is written within the Bible. And I refuse to debate theology with someone who doesn't believe in it to begin with. I just won't insult my beliefs like that. So think what you want. It's not my job to convince you one way or the other.
Church funded "expeditions" to Mt. Ararat that come back with blurry images and flakes of wood do not constitute "archeological or historical discoveries". There is a huge gap between what Atheists and Religious Folk consider Evidence that can probably never be bridged.

It appears the true meaning of this thread is to go on and on in a never ending cycle of insanity and intense (not altogether intellectual) debate over a God that you don't even believe in to begin with. Talk about obsession. Or perhaps you simply need something to do. You know, whatever passes the time. As a person with a somewhat functional brain, it stands to reason that if you were at all serious about disproving the existence of God once and for all you surely would have done it by now. Or at the very least shut the hell up about it. Instead of gathering together in a circle discussing exactly how badly you hate religion. As well as taking your frustration out on those of us who sincerely choose to believe in something greater than ourselves. As if it were any of your business at all. Perhaps the next time you decide to have circle time, it would do well for at least one of ya to bring a little marijuana to your little narcissistic gathering of the mind. Be sure to inhale deeply so as to get the full benefit of one of mother natures many pleasures. Maybe this way you'll finally lighten the fuck up and stop bringing the rest of us down with your never ending quest for "enlightenment."
We would be blissfully ignorant of your personal delusions had you chosen not to visit us here. It would be interesting to know what attracts y'all here. I know I have no desire to visit religious threads. I would think you would consider it kind of perverse, like visiting the theological equivalent of a porn site when no one was watching. Surely, not what Jesus would do. Right? Perhaps you harbor some doubts and expect us to provide some kind of remarkable insight to justify them. BTW ... the wonders of Science have provided employers with tools to analyze and trace marijuana use at the molecular level. I'm on the wagon.

Is that the question you kept referring to? No wonder I couldn't remember, it's the same old question that atheists ask all the time – nothing sets it apart from the run-of-the-mill atheist questions we hear every day asking for proof of God. So why do you bother to ask it?
It's already been answered for you time and again in many different ways by Christians. If you choose not to accept the answers you've already been given over and over and over and over and over, then why do you need more answers? Are you just plain dense?[YES]
God is the Creator of heaven and earth and everything else. The Bible was not written by “someone”(s) imagination. It has many authors, spanning centuries. None of it has ever been proven untrue.
BS. The buy-bull has night and day existing, and plants growing before there is a sun. That's untrue.
The buy-bull indicates the earth is flat. Again, untrue.
Langoliers wrote:
People try all the time, and fail, because there are valid explanations for anything that on the surface appears to be a discrepancy. One part of it refers to another, confirms another, and all can be reconciled. Why would so many authors from so many centuries create an imaginary story?
LOL! You can't be serious.
Langoliers wrote:
How could they confer with one another to do so when their lives did not overlap? Why would they endure persecution and die for an imaginary belief? What was to be gained?
You can't be serious. Guess Allah must be the real god, because people put on bomb jackets and blow themselves and others up in his name all the time.
Langoliers wrote:
Science is your god. It has failed you so many times.
Why should anyone accept science and it's fraud?
Is there a law against fundies learning the difference between "its" and "it's"?
Anyway, science is not my god. Science is a filed of study created by humans.
Langoliers wrote:
Why should anyone believe Darwin, a sick bodied, sick minded man who conspired with fraudulent scientists to produce this “theory” back in the 1850's? What peer review groups checked out his work? How credible were the peer review groups? What of the unanswered or badly answered questions evolution has never resolved that have been posted here? You put your faith in all that? You truly live in a faith filled imaginary world full of potholes, fake evidence, and lies.
What about all the people like you who believed what Lamarck told them? They believed he was right, just as you believe Darwin was right. Lamarck was wrong. His followers were wrong. Darwin was wrong, and you are wrong.
http://www.arn.org/docs/dardoc1.htm
LOL. The whole logic thing is beyond fundies. If you could think rationally and logically, you wouldn't be fundies.
And you didn't provide any evidence at all for god!
Even if Lamarck and Darwin were wrong, that's not evidence for god.
Still, no evidence for god!

<quoted text>Magic and incantations you believe in? But you want me to prove the thing you lot claimed arose from his grave was not a result of magic and incantations? LOL! It didn't happen! But it is nothing less than magic or incantations which are credited with it. The incantations are but an appeal to some mythological magic sky monkey god or another. You know "prayer".
BTW, I don't believe in either the Hollywood, the Vodun or even the buybull version of the risen from dead zombie "Jewsus".
No evidence, as I said many times before, lack of evidence. If it were real there would be evidence. You say you have that evidence, but don't have time to post it all, so try for just one bit of proof. Just one thing that proves without doubt a god exists, any god will do.
You see proving a god would not eliminate we atheist, we still would be without theism, even if we did believe that a god existed. If the god that was proven to exist was the bible god, our own sense of right and wrong would not let us kneel to that filthy monster. I think most of us would be willing to go all out to bring it to trial for it's crimes against humanity. I know I would, if it existed.
I think Richard Dawkins said it perfectly:
"The God of the Old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; a petty, unjust, unforgiving control-freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully."

From Wikipedia:
Nazareth (pron.:/ˈnæzərəθ/; Hebrew:נָצְ Natzrat or Natzeret; Arabic:اَلن an-Nāṣira or an-Naseriyye) is the largest city in the North District of Israel. Nazareth is known as "the Arab capital of Israel"; the population is made up predominantly of Arab citizens of Israel, almost all of whom are either Muslim (69%) or Christian (30.9%).[2][3][4][5] In the New Testament, the city is described as the childhood home of Jesus, and as such is a center of Christian pilgrimage, with many shrines commemorating biblical events.
From Wikipedia:
Riverside is a city in rural Washington County, Iowa, United States, along the English River on Iowa Highway 22. It is part of the Iowa City, Iowa Metropolitan Statistical Area. The population was 993 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Highland Community School District.

Riverside proclaimed itself the future birthplace of Captain James T. Kirk,...

The problem is, you make it our business. You work against equal rights because you believe giving people equal rights goes against your beliefs. You fight against the right to get an abortion, and even contraception. You harass people at funerals.

Sure, let's talk about your little Rabbi Jewsus and the naked man, running from his tent, on the night he was arrested. Or maybe we could discuss the golden hemmorhoids that were made and sacrificed to your god, along with the rats. Have you ever had the god force you to eat one of your children, like the bible says you might?
