Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

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.

I know that God exists if you do not you are the one lacking not me.

BUY - BULL there I said it that does not make it real all it does is prove you are too stupid to spell BIBLE correctly. BuyBull still does not exist; it is only a pathetic attempt to undermine the Word of God.

Yes light and dark existed before the sun and moon that is enlightenment and the lack of enlightenment. And again the Hebrew word you are referring to is “Yom” meaning a time period of 24 hours no need there for a clock.

Those stone age goat herders you talk about knew far more than you give them credit for.

Tell me what was the surface temperature of the soil 6000 years ago.

Say it out loud. Buy-bull.
BS. The story clearly says there were light and dark before the sun was created, and there were evening and morning the first day, before the sun was created. Genesis 1:3-5 or thereabouts.
It's clear they didn't know that evening and morning were caused by a point on the earth rotating away from and towards the sun. It's clear they didn't know that moon light was just a reflection of sun light.
No, that just shows that the Bronze Age goat herders that wrote the story were ignorant. They didn't know the sun provided the heat and light needed for plant growth. They thought the sun just "ruled" the day. They didn't know that the earth would be around 0 Kelvin without the sun, and that plants wouldn't last for a second under that condition.
Their ignorance was understandable.
What about yours?

<quoted text>God is not a name, it is a title.
To proclaim one god as The God is obnoxious and disrespectful to other religious people.

The best part? Autocorrect doesn't capitalize the first letter of god, and even better, it doesn't even capitalize the first letter in "Jesus," even though that IS a proper noun.

Anyway, in short, you're complaining about people that don't coddle Christians, you aren't talking about the English language.
In the English language, "god" is most appropriate while "God" is not.
Unless you know an individual in person named God?
Here are a few pointer that you must have forgotten or maybe you've not
Learned this stuff yet.

"Indeed, it would be rather juvenile to misspell God simply in order to insult theists. If such an atheist had so little respect for another person, why even waste the time writing to them in the first place, much less deliberately trying to hurt them at the same time? While that may actually be the case with some atheists who write the word 'god' with a lowercase 'g,' "

http://atheism.about.com/od/doesgodexist/a/ca...

"The use of capitalization, as for a proper noun, has persisted to disambiguate the concept of a singular God, specifically the Christian God, from pagan deities for which lower case god has continued to be applied, mirroring the use of Latin deus. Pronouns referring to God are also often capitalized and are traditionally in the masculine gender, i.e. "He", "Him", "His" etc.[12][13] However, some people have referred to God in feminine terms, such as "She" and "Her". "

BTW... how many names does the Christian god have anyway?

Enough with the Torah talk, you have been stone cold busted as a Christian liar. Oh ya the Torah is chock full of hellfire references!

Lmfao! Time to change your screen name liar.

I have read this rubbish from you before you have used it so many time and so many people have pointed out the flaw in you logic, I don’t really know if I should do so as so many already have.
I will repeat what someone else has already told you;
It is recorded in the Torah that God Himself did write on the stone commandment tables. So your entire thing falls over at that point.
Secondly there are more possible statements in your logic; you have chosen to only use a few.
Now answer me this in a court of law do the judge, the lawyers, the witnesses and the jury all write down their own words, or is there a scribe to do it for them. The fact that a scribe does it does not disprove the existence of the judge, the lawyers, the witnesses and the jury. Again proof that you logic is flawed.
The fact that God chose to interact with mankind through a mediator does not make him any less God.

<quoted text>Getting mad, eh?

Don't blame me, blame the Bible.

After all, I'm only quoting what it says.

Here's another one:

"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil."
Ecclesiastes 12:13-14

There's that "fear God" thing again. You Christians sure got a lot of fear going on. LOL

By the way.

Did you read the bit about how it's every work that gets judged?

Nothing to do with faith.
Twisting scripture again wood head?

You obviously have no clue of what the real meaning of you're trying to twist up.

<quoted text>Ok lets look again "true first must first provide" WOW great English once again form the fool.

I did, your turn prove that God does not exist, just one little proof to go with your little mind
Actually, you never did.
"God exists" doesn't count as proof, for you didn't prove anything.

Also, before you pretend to know something, maybe you should make sure you actually do know it.
See, "the one claiming a statement is true first" means you are the one who claimed the statement was true, and you were the first one to do so.
Next, "must first provide" means you must provide first, and in this case, what is being provided is evidence.
Or rather, not being provided, for you haven't provided any evidence.

Again, learn English before you correct others' English.

Instead of getting her water and rushing her to the hospital they stood there holding hands and praying! I grabbed my cell phone and called for an ambulance and started trying to get her to drink. Slowly she sipped the water as the praying continued. The ambulance came after almost an hour and reluctantly took her to the hospital, the paramedic said she was good as dead and best leave it in the hands of Jesus same thing the crowd thought. She died 18 hours later. They didn't even know her name and couldn't figure it out.

There is no true god because even if there was a god, you could never say that yours, over a million others, is the true god. Next, due to the fact that there is no "true god," there is no title of "The God" and therefore no title of "God."

And finally, you whine and complain that others whine and complain about a simple capitalization or lack thereof, but you're the one whining and complaining about it.
