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.

Just asserting he exists isn't proof of squat. Give me some real evidence.

As for your line about creation, day and night are measurements of time the sun and moon were placed there to show us that time, time still exists with out the indicators like clocks the sun and moon do not create time.
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.

Yes God created the plants before the heat of the sun warmed the earth, so what, He chose to do it that way and he did.
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?

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 dont 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.

Let's start with the "Facts" your Bible Claims;
1. God is omnipotent
2. God is omniscient
3. God is omnipresent
4. God has a message for all people.
That's what your bible claims right?
OK, so why couldn't your God write down this message himself or otherwise leave a message where all can find it?
There are only a few possibilities to consider;
1. He didn't know how.=> He's not God.
2. He wasn't powerful enough.=> He's not God.
3. He did but someone hid it.=> God doesn't know where it is, could not have known it would be hidden => He's not God.
4. He did but someone destroyed it.=> God didn't know that would happen and could not prevent it => He's not God.
5. He did but man is too limited to understand the message => God didn't make his creatures so they would understand his message AND he didn't write his message so his creatures could understand it => He's not God.
6. God doesn't really have a message for all humans => The bible is completely wrong and does not describe God properly i.e. The God described in the bible does not exist.
There, ONCE AGAIN!! Solid Proof the God described in the Bible does not exist.

I am especially proud of my volunteer work and donations to the humanist cause. Every year I go to the Philippines and spend thousands on food,water, clothing and medicine for the needy there. After a horrific typhoon and flooding there I was there amongst others 14 hours a day handing out supplies, giving life saving injections and treatments to those who lost their home. I stood and watched as homeless children lined up easily 3 miles deep for a package of crackers sandwich fruit and bottle of water. Unwanted children who were born because the Christian ran theocracy light government makes it nearly impossible for a woman to obtain birth control. My wife is in pre-med classes and wants to practice medicine there free to help those poor children. Here in the states I collect donations for running in marathons with the money going to children's charities and cancer or HIV awareness programs.
I have seen first hand time and time again the damage and heart breaking situations brought on by theists. The same theists who come crawling to us to help fix their mess! Oh but while we are fixing it are we thanked? Nope. We barely get the figurative broom in hand and they are shrieking at us for not believing in their imaginary friend.
Honor? I guess it is a relative term. The dozen of urban low income students I assist for free with their biology and pharmaceutical homework at two different colleges locally would probably say good ole KJ is an alright dude.
Now if coming on topix and giving the theists a little taste of backbone, the theists who try to intimidate and silence non believers because they think we should all be meek and humble and tolerate their abuse and repeated logical fallacies makes me vile, Without reason, Disrespectful, In someone's opinion? So be it, hmmm I will chuckle about how vile And disrespectful I am Friday at U of L for the 6 hours I am assisting the students there as a volunteer. Or perhaps this summer as I am passing out thousands of dollars worth of free medicine and other essentials trying to save some more homeless from dying. Yes I was walking by a group of people there and they were huddled together praying loudly and crying. I looked in and a young girl was on the ground dying of dehydration. 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.
I guess I'll somehow deal with being called disrespectful.

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.

<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". "

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/God_ (word)

"god-†Lowercase this when used as a prefix. Examples: godchild, goddaughter, godfather, godlike, godliness, godmother, godsend, godson, godspeed. Do not hyphenate
gods and goddesses †Capitalize God and similar names of the deity of a monotheistic religion: Allah, God, God the Father, Holy Ghost, Holy Spirit, Jehovah, Jesus Christ, the Redeemer, the Son of God, the Son of Man, Yahweh. Lowercase the personal pronouns he, him, thee, they, thou, who, whose, in references to monotheistic deities. Lowercase gods andgoddesses in references to the deities of polytheistic religions, but capitalize formal names. Lowercase god in references to false gods. He made money her god."

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.

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.
