Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

There are 14730 comments on the News24 story from Aug 27, 2012, titled Why Atheism Will Replace Religion. In it, News24 reports that:

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.

This is a perfect example of an Atheist that DOES believe there is no God.
Atheists believe there are no gods.

Even then, a lot of the places mentioned in the bible don't exist.

Oh, and you forgot to comment on the fact that science has determined the world to be about 6.4 billion years and the first humans existed 195'000 years ago.

When does the bible say the world was created?
Oh yeah, 6'000 years ago.

Plants growing
Genesis 1:12:
"The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good."

The sun was not created until Genesis 1:16:
"God made two great lights--the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars."

"The Noah's Ark story is absurd.
140,000 birds on a boat lined with tar!? Have you cleaned up a cage with one bird in it?"

Anybody can read the Noah's Ark story. Noah was told to take 7 pairs of each type of bird, and there are 10K species of birds. Do the math. And the story says the boat was lined on the inside and outside with "pitch", which is just another word for tar.

If you cannot defend your belief with proof then just say so and that will be that.

"Until very recently, there was no evidence outside the Bible for the existence of King David. There are no references to him in Egyptian, Syrian or Assyrian documents of the time, and the many archaeological digs in the City of David failed to turn up so much as a mention of his name. Then, on July 21, 1993, a team of archaeologists led by Prof. Avraham Biran, excavating Tel Dan in the northern Galilee, found a triangular piece of basalt rock, measuring 23 x 36 cm. inscribed in Aramaic. It was subsequently identified as part of a victory pillar erected by the king of Syria and later smashed by an Israelite ruler. The inscription, which dates to the ninth century BC, that is to say, about a century after David was thought to have ruled Israel, includes the words Beit David ("House" or "Dynasty" of David"). It is the first near-contemporaneous reference to David ever found. It is conclusive; it does strongly indicate that a king called David established a dynasty in Israel during the relevant period as stated in the Bible. Archaeologist continue to find the evidence to substantiate the story's in the Bible as accurate."

Also, for all we know, you could have a source that is religiously biased and doesn't actually have evidence...such as the last guy who gave a link.

The crux of the problem in the interpretation of this lexeme is the absence of a word divider between the apparent two parts: &#1489;&#1497;&#15 14; (Beth) and &#1491;&#1493;&#14 91; (DWD). This suggests that the lexeme expresses a single word idea, not two words like “house” and “David”. In support of this Athas points out that elsewhere in the Tel Dan inscription word dividers are used regularly in expressions constructed from two or more concepts:“on the ground of El-Baytel”,“the king of Israel”,“and thousands of horsemen”,“their land”.

What next shroud of turin? Half Wit screws up again with his linkless spam.

So? They were growing before there was a Sun but not before there was light.

The Holy Bible: King James Version. 2000.

The First Book of Moses, Called
Genesis
1

The Creation
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
3 ¶ And God said, Let there be light: 2 Cor. 4.6 and there was light.
4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.
5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

"10K species of birds"

The Bible uses the word "Kind" not species. All Ducks would be one "kind" even though there are many Duck species.

Try educating yourself on the Bible before you choose to hate it.
