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.

That hope that makes them blow themselves up Muq?

You are right in your analysis.
A believer has some hope even in the worst of condition, so he hangs on to the hope and does not kill himself / herself.
An atheist on the other hand has no hope of anything. He or she will themselves whenever they think that going is too rough.
They lead the life, unloved and unsung and they also die like that.
I do not know what are their last rites? They are lowered in their graves "In the name of Charles Darwin...."?

I don't think that's what it demonstrates. Christians are human too.....and capable of cruelty as well as benevolence, as anyone else.
Right, well, if they do evil AFTER becoming Christian, what is the point of having a religion again??

Baloney! More atheists commit suicide than those who are religious.

Ahhhhh......there's something about the aroma of marinara sauce simmering on the stove....its down right soulful I tell ya. The problem with Atheists is that other than April Fool's Day, they have no holidays. Vita e' Bella.
The article was about the non-religious, not atheists specifically. Your comment is against those without religion so it is against all those the article lists as well.

Now that I've said the above:
Many of the holidays we celebrate are originally pagan holidays. The biggest example is Christmas.
Now, even if the majority of the holidays we celebrate weren't created by non-religious people, how do the majority of people spend holidays like Christmas?
In a church? Praying all day?
No, they celebrate by joining with family for a day or a few days.
The holidays are cultural, not religious.

You think atheists, pagans, agnostics, and so on, never celebrate any holidays? If so, that is the most ignorant thinking I've come across in a long time.

Your first link leads nowhere but to an error page.
And so that argument is useless for you have nothing to back you up save for opinion, and opinion is not fact.

Your second link and point has nothing to do with atheism, for communism is not an atheistic practice. Communism is economy-related, not religion-related.

Your post has no substance, and so there is nothing to even attempt to refute.

Fitz also parades the "Gay and Lesbian" threads. His posts are never on topic and contain not a single grain of truth.

A lot of these people that think their faith is truth and fact believe that atheists are offended by their beliefs.
It's like going up to someone and saying unicorns exist and then telling them you're sorry for offending them.
It's completely irrational and I never understood it, but that's how these people think.

The link you stole from chuckle chuckle yahoo answers about suicide doesn't work. The actual studies on suicide and religious affiliation have been inconclusive and contradictory. Only deeply religious people have shown a slight % lower than non believers in suicide rates. However if you include Muslims the rate swings wildly the other direction.

Yawn how many times are you like the typical christian apologetic you are, going to pull the totalitarian card? Seriously can't you do any better than that chumpstain?

Any study casting the atheist in an unfavorable light is always seen as "inconclusive and contradictory" whereas the atheist's dubious Darwin fairy tales are considered gospel. LOL!

Which doesn't explain why atheists routinely refer to science's myths (big bang, evolution, natural selection) to renounce the existence of God.
