Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,507

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. Read more

Common sense would tell you that 'hell' is fictional.

As long as your mother survives after getting pregnant by your father, you are born where she is after say 6-9 months. Seems kinda in stone to me.
How you are born is up to her if she wants to push you out vaginally or do a c-section.
I guess you were thinking your parents prayed or sang a sweet baby wanting song to Jesus and he had one delivered via the stork or something? Sorry that's not how it happens.

I am a 32 year old multi-racial man with a Johnson bigger than anyone in your family. I answered your question if you lack the IQ to comprehend it's not my fault.

Your Hypatia of Alexandria (370 - 415 AD) simply proves that atheism is as old as belief and religion. It demonstrates that the curent crop of atheists have not made any forward progress in proving their disbelief than were they existened intellectually thousands of years ago/
The difficulty here is that Hypatia was a pagan, not an atheist.
Your Jefferson quote fails because in the current intellectual climate it dosent take courage at all to question the existance of God. On the contrary it is defense of belief that takes courage in many circles. Jefferson himself of course found religious belief to be an indespensable part of the democracy he helped create, and fosaw that its diminishment would mean the end of a free peope in the U.S.
Where does it take courage to defend a belief in God? Certainly not in the halls of Congress, in the Presidency, or in any political campaign.
On the contrary, it is the easiest form of political suicide to say you are an atheist and attempt to defend that position.
Carl Sagan paints the belief in an afterlife as far too comfortinga notion. Ignoring completley the doctrine of Hell and purgatory. A unconcious sleep and non-existgance would strike most people as nmore comforting a notion than a final judgment by an all knowing God that presuposses a verdictg that can send you to Hell for eternity or purgatory until your soul is cleansed.
Many people seem to find non-existence as even scarier than existence in the Christian hell.

It certainly does help with the "virgin birth" postulate though...

Who said humans were omniscient and omnipotent?? God is supposed to be omniscient and omnipotent. Therefore he should be able to create anything flawlessly and foresee the outcome of any creation because he knows all past, present and future.
First make me omniscient and omnipotent, then your complaint will have merit, but then, I might smite you!
He created what was best for anyone. If some one has any problem with HIS creation, he or she should move away from His universe.

If some one has created anything, only he can realize what is creation.

You just cannot stand by the side ways and say "I think it should be created this way and that way...."

As I said, I can pin point 100 mistakes in any Airplane, Roll Royce and best things humans made...because I did not make any of these things"

The same is the case with you Bozos, who never created anything and just standing by the roadside and commenting.

Got it? Einstein

YOU are the one saying that his creation did something he didn't want it to. I'm just pointing out that is the sign of a flawed creator. Seems in this post you now agree with me.

You've never seen my Uncle Tony. Madone!
I answered your question if you lack the IQ to comprehend it's not my fault.
Oh but of course, after all you have such a big Johnson, requires so much blood flow that there's not enough left over for your brain to think outside the barn door. I'm sure Dolly the sheep is impressed with your "big Johnson", not to mention all the "big Johnson" t-shirts you put on her.
And if you say Jesus backwards it sounds like sausage!
Saying Hey soos backwards sounds like sausage? There's that lack of blood flow to the brain causing you problems again.

First off it's not true.
To quote Milton. "It's better to rule in hell then to serve in heaven"
Satanism has many that believe in hell and believe they are going there.
As for the rest those that believe there is a hell also read enough of the book to understand how not to wind up there.
Not really Brilliant, just common sense.
That's from a poem Milton wrote, and Satanists don't even believe Satan is an actual being.

Yup that why I said "To quote Milton. "
