Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,385

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

The fact remains that neither you nor anyone else has ever produced actual scientific evidence for this I look forward to reading yours.
Still the eclipse is determined by the mechanical movement of the solar system, not evolution,
It is determined by the laws of gravity. These laws are tested in exactly the same way ALL scietntific laws are tested.
which by the way is not only biological, it is also geological and planetary.
Wrong again. The *theory of evolution* is a theory about biology. It is not a theory about geology or planetary science. Those other subjects *inform* the theory of evolution, but are not part of it. They are separate subjects.
Wow you c an miss the point if you try, the no nay sayers was for the sun not coming up tomorrow, a pint to your “we can predict the future based on a theory”
Scientific laws make predictions that can be observed. They determine the 'mechanical' workings of the solar system (and all other systems). Gravity is the primary force that determines things like the timing of eclipses and the motions of the planets. It is still a testable theory and is tested *in detail* still.
Pleas post the references you referred to but don’t forget that have to be verifiable and repeatable to even begin to fit your model.
You DNA and protein example fit perfectly into the intelligent design model that is an undeniable fact. Yes my view point says that is the way it was designed to work by a creator, all your says is that is what evolution says, no parrot not facts no nothing really.
here's a challenge. Make a prediction based on *your* ideas that differs from one that is made (and agreed by scientists to be made) from the theory of evolution. Then we can go and test and see which is correct.

The whale example does not 'fit perfectly* into the intelligent design theory. An intelligent design would have similar structures at all levels for similar jobs. But the proteins for whales are NOT similar to those of fish. They are similar to those of hooved animals. The theory of evolution predicts this. It also predicts that the other proteins in whales will be more similar to those of hooved animals than those of fish.

You see, that is what descent with modification does: it takes the proteins and structures *that already exist* and modify them. But that means that they record the pattern of changes by looking at the pattern of similarities. Intelligent design would not predict this.
You can say as much as you like there is proof there are facts there are whatevers, but you still cannot produce them. Why do you not take up my first challenge, write a paper get it peer reviewed and then published putting your name to the irrevocable scientific proof for the theory of evolution.
Last words When and Where
I am not a biologist. I am a mathematician and a physicist. If you want to discuss the Big Bang theory instead of evolution, I can go into deeper specifics. Of course, you will have to understand a bit of math to follow along.

But even the fact of evolution is rather simple to show: the species alive today are not the same as those alive 1 million years ago. And those were different than the species alive 10 million years ago. And those were different than those alive 20 million years ago. In each case, the species alive at some time are similar, but different than those alive at the previous time with more similar species in the same geographical locations. These are facts that your intelligent design theory cannot deal with intelligently.

What a load of absolute rubbish. Atheism is one of the many pagan religions that appeared on earth between the would wide flood and the dispersion of Babel. But then I would not expect an ignorant sod like you to know that.
Two of your myths. There was no world-wide flood and languages did not comes from the time of the Tower of Babel (actually a ziggurat). There were *local* floods in the Tigris-Euphrates valley that inspired your myth 9and even previous version of that myth), but there was no world-wide flood.

People have went on massacres because of Harry Potter like they did your bible? Going to need to see some proof of that.

<quoted text>Very true. Since there is no "ism" in being an atheist, it will not become a replacement "ism". Atheism is the lack of an ism, and the lack of an ism will, in time replace the isms, as more and more people actually look at what they have been taught to believe.
Take the Abrahamic god for instance. Believing in an all powerful loving god is very possible, until you actually read and understand the bible. Then you have no choice but to know that the loving god would force you to eat your child, and the all powerful god was flat out whooped by the iron chariot. That will tell you that what the buybull says ain't necessarily so.
I think some people are just blind or they have a mental problem. They read the bad things in the koran/bible and they agree with it, it makes perfect sense to them. I just don't see these kind of people ever changing. Then they brainwash their kids to think that too and it just keeps going around in a circle.

Harry Potter is not a myth it is a work of fiction based very closely on the reality of witchcraft.
The Torah and Bible of YHVH is fact, historically, scientifically and culturally. It is a great shame the misguided people have used it to kill millions.

Are you trying to say that the created laws of through physical universe rely on the observation of man, on the universe, to exits. That is utterly rediculous.

There is one extreme problem in out post: how did you determined the age of any species to billions of years or even millions of years.

There is nothing that cannot be fully and completely accurately explained by intelligent design

So you believe in talking snakes, witches of endor, wizards, unicorns, the ten plagues along with their companion Ten Commandments lmfao!

Harry potter and the Torah are both works of fiction. The only difference is Harry Potter didn't steal most of it's content from previous writings as the Torah did.
