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.

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-âà Lowercase this when used as a prefix. Examples: godchild, goddaughter, godfather, godlike, godliness, godmother, godsend, godson, godspeed. Do not hyphenate
gods and goddesses âà 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."

Wow, really into trying to make people disrespect every other religion by titling your god as "God."
Your obsession with how people say an imaginary being's name is quite unnatural.

Who made up these rules, they are not classical literary nor debatary rules in English. I guess you just made them up to take the heat off me asking you for proof of your little lies, no they are not really little (that would describe your mind) they are in fact whoppers.

My proof once again for you miss-firing mind:
1) Millions of eyewitnesses
2) Millions of eyewitness sworn statement
3) Million of written document
4) Creation
5) Time
6) My personal witness and knowledge.

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.

Anyway, back to the topic.
Yes, you are right, you DO know your own BELIEFS. But you don't know if your god exists, with actual knowledge based on facts.

Also, asurity isn't a word.
Again, learn English.

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.
This is a lie, no one has found a flaw in this logic.
Bobby The great wrote:
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.
Incorrect! and again, no one can produce these tablets so;

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.

You continue to fail to find a flaw in the logic.
Bobby The great wrote:
Secondly there are more possible statements in your logic; you have chosen to only use a few.
It only takes a few, you have yet to identify a flaw in the logic.
Bobby The great wrote:
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.
Judges, lawyers, witnesses and juries are not powerful or knowledgeable enough to transcribe their own testimony in the allotted time.

And AGAIN:

1. He didn't know how.=> He's not God.
2. He wasn't powerful enough.=> He's not God.

You still fail to find a flaw in the logic.
Bobby The great wrote:
The fact that God chose to interact with mankind through a mediator does not make him any less God.
Actually, yes it does! Why would a God need a mediator? Why would a God need messengers? Why would a God need warriors?

The fact is, a God wouldn't need those things.

EPIC FAIL!!!

You've still got nothing!

Try to read with comprehension next time. You look pretty stupid when I have to re-read it for you.

1) I proved your logic faulty in my reply, so you are wrong once again
2) God does know where it is and it will be revealed when He chooses to reveal it not in your time.
3) God know what will happen he is running on His time schedule not yours,
4) Your logic is flawed proved by point 2 and 3 above
5) But they do exist, there is enough time, yet they don’t they use scribes.
6) He Knows how and did write the original tables as recorded.
7) God chooses to use people to interact with people, much like a president uses aids to interact with his subjects.
8) God does not NEED them he chooses them. Big difference.
9) You don’t have to re-read anything you have to re-post your rubbish over and over again to try to convince people you know what you are talking about but you do not.
10) Your logic is flawed I proved that and so have 3 other people in this threat (well 3 that I found with a cursory search.). You can post that as often as you like, you obviously like it.
Logic correctly applied would look something like this:
(from your post)
“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 did write it down the way described in scripture=> He is God
3. He wasn't powerful enough.=> He's not God.
4. He is all powerful as described in scripture=> He is God
5. 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.
6.. He did but someone hid it.=> God knows where it was hidden and will reveal it in His time=> He is God
7. He did but someone destroyed it.=> God didn't know that would happen and could not prevent it => He's not God.
8. He did but someone destroyed it.=>God knew it would be destroyed it which is why it is written in so many places today=> He is God
9. 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.
10. He wrote is as required Man chooses to ignore it, He gave man free will => He is God
11. 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.
12. His message is for everyone, everywhere, it is correct (if man translates it so). He exists as described in the Torah=> HE IS GOD.
There you have it better application of logic for every negative you must have a positive. If not the statement is not logical.

I have laid it out I do not need to produce anything else to prove anything else, it is now time for you to be a big boy and look for yourself, read the Torah, study the world around you, look into the dimension of time.

Bald faced lie, lawyers, judges, juries, witnesses are not trained to record in writing the events in the courtroom in real time. Scribes are required for that reason. If a God has the same limitations then;
1. He didn't know how.=> He's not God.
2. He wasn't powerful enough.=> He's not God.
