Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,477

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

<quoted text>Your shroud of Turin style fantasy has already been soundly debunked. Sorry the bible is a myth.

Even if a King David was found it doesn't prove it was the bible one nor does it prove any of the miracles in the bible. Spider-Man met Obama who is real but that doesn't mean there really is a Spider-Man fighting Venom in NYC.

Your faith is built on a hallow lie.

If they do not exist in this universe, how can their existence be detected at all? Seems to me, you've been listening to some ancient goat herder fables again.

Just plain Stupid.
You're going to try and hold God to a dictionary definition of the word "time" in a sad attempt to counter the definition of the word you use to describe your religion.
LMAO.
What a Dolt!
Really? So in any conversation about God, we should use definitions of words that are not as defined in the dictionary?

Who's looking stupid now?

So since we are using definitions of words that are not in the dictionary, what you are really saying is, "You are correct, I am an absolute imbecile and I have no idea what I am talking about."

Right? I mean think about it, if the words I just used are not as defined in the dictionary then we could be in raging agreement and you would never know.

Dumb azz!!

See even you with your dyslexia and other limitations wouldn't accept that Spider-Man was real just because Obama appeared in a comic. Even with your limitations you would understand Spider-Man is a work of fiction. Same principle with your bible myth. It's just older and people were forces to believe it as truth.

I accept your surrender.

Use Google.
If you claim something is true, and then don't back it up yourself...then that is a lie.

I'm not going to go search on Google, because I'll be there forever.
Why will I be there forever?
Because your claims are false and I will never find anything.

If you have a link, post it.
If not, don't claim these fallacies that you've been claiming.
That's all they are without anything to back it up.

1 % 2 In my way of thinking, there is no difference between Muslims and Islam. It may not be entirely accurate but it is close enough. Like rounding Pi to 3.14. I am glad that you are not recruiting, that is, it makes me glad that you are not trying to "spread" Islam ... merely defending it.

3. " http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/afric ... ;. There are many such examples.

4. You're being taught that version of history in what passes for sermons in your Mosques. Sad. We want to buy your oil and we want to sell you Blue Jeans and cheeseburgers.

5. Obama & Biden ... Osama bin Laden ... the Puppet Masters are playing word games. Obama was plucked from political obscurity for several reasons. Can you guess what these reasons might be?
Ans.

1. In Ideal case a Muslim is one who follows Islam. But when we see Muslims not following teachings of Islam, you will have to differentiate between Islam and Muslims.

No Muslim tries to "recruit" if that is what you mean. We tell the truth about Islam and the sincere souls from all faiths get attracted to it.

2. The sermons are usually about teachings of Quran and sayings of prophet and asking Muslims to adhere to them. It is a sort of 'recharging' our faiths.

3. I do not know what are internal politics of USA. What I know is that thinks do not change much if Idiot A or Idiot B is sitting in the white house. Policies of US are decided by the think tanks who are highly controlled by the Jewish / Zionist lobby.

The people who call themselves Presidents Of USA are only "Show Boys"

Bingo!!
A positive belief!! As in Religion!
A positive assertion in a belief put the burden of proof on "you" that there is no gods!
To easy.
LOL
The paucity of your arguments is never clearer when the best response you have is poor word games.

Atheism is a religion you say?

That's like me saying that Christians don't believe in all the other gods that are found in different belief systems, ergo Christianity is atheism.

You'll have to do much better than that.

Unfortunately for you, I very much doubt that you can.

No, my assertions are right.
"It says plants were growing before there was a sun."
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.
I wonder why no one questions as to where did this great "night light" disappear to? Was the god confused as to the moon being a light, rather than a reflection of a light?

Poor dumb god.

Notwithstanding the fact that not all Israeli archaeologists agree with you; let's just assume for a minute that you're right.

If that was the case, then it's not the Bible that is being confirmed as accurate but the original Jewish scrolls and writings.

Remember? The Jews.

They're the ones who wrote the texts, not the Christians.

They're the ones whose religion it is, not yours.

They're the ones who reject Jesus and Christianity.

After all, they can see Christianity for what it is: Judaism mixed with hand-picked elements of paganism.
