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.

When confronted with this his answer was.... Get ready for this... No seriously this was the excuse he used.... It's almost painful how stupid this was.... Ahem... We make the exact same mistakes when posting because we worked together for 35 years.

Seriously he used that excuse. An excuse that a 3rd grade child could see through.

Oh that's nothing...I know a sock juggler that I've been dealing with since August, and others even a year before.
That person shared her name online, then switched accounts (instead of leaving) and acted/spelled/believed the same exact things, obviously a sock.
She says now, finally after admitting it, that she was lying to protect herself.
Funniest part?
She claims to be a devout born-again Christian, and that she never lies.
So pretending you're an entirely different person, and denying you are said original person, is telling the truth, in her books.

She goes under:
YELLODOG
pattiecake58
United in Faith
wrongrighter

And her current sock:
honeysuckle_rose

Now, I might have one or two of those usernames spelled slightly wrong, but those are only those I know of so far...and this is over the period of maybe half a year.

Fine, just walk off a tall building then. After all, it is just the belief in gravity that keeps it real, right?

Your use of the word "spam," and your expectations of everyone getting your bad joke, show you really have nothing to say.
I was talking to some one who lives in the town where Spam is packed.
So I asked him if he enjoyed packing Spam. It is what 95% of the people in that town do for a living. It was you who stuck your nose in and didn't understand. Dolt!

Wrong!

Never happened. I work with KJV our style of posting is the same because we post together under one of our names when we're together. Oh and he's out of the country for a bit but he'll be back.

<quoted text>Yeah that is exactly what he said, how hard is it to understand that by you saying "I believe Grandma's cake will be awesome." is what you call a religious belief? That is what you are saying, it can be proven, but not necessarily so. And saying that "I don't believe aliens rule the world from invisible taco shaped spaceships.", is considered by you to be a religious belief. Those two statements do meet your criteria for the definition.
Ok Dolt lets do this very slow so you can keep up.

Believing that no God or gods exist is unprovable.

Believing in something unprovable is called faith.

faith\ˈfāth\
noun
1 a : firm belief in something for which there is no proof

Synonyms: religion

Your grandma's cake and taste is not unprovable.

Did ya get that?
Oh are you still lost?

Found this blog quite interesting.
I think he got my name wrong its not Langan it's Langoliers.

"I just finished the book "Outliers" by Malcolm Gladwell. Among the topics are one on Christopher Langan who has an IQ of 195, which is supposed to be the highest in the world. After finishing the chapter I googled him, and found out that he has been studying physics on his own for pretty much his entire life but only went to college for one year.

What interested me was that he has been working on something that he calls "Cognitive-Theoretic Model of the Universe". While I don´t understand much of it (few does) I was surprised to see that he actually believes in God. Not only that, he claims that it is possible to mathematically prove that God exists and that we have a soul. At first glance I was amazed of this, since I´m a complete atheist (and swedish - none of use are believers). But I can´t help thinking that, since his mind are more powerful than anyone else´s, maybe he has seen further than anyone ever have. This scares me a little bit, b/c obv if he is correct I really don´t want to die for obvious reasons "

There is more proof that god is not real then tehre is he or she is real...I mean since no one has seen from or heard from god since time the bible was written I would say the proof he is real is slim and very old...And since there has been no proof of god sicne that time that initself is great proof he is not real...

The thing is this.....your god is your god. And since he is your god proving he is real is on your sholders. I dont nor does anyone have to prove he is not real....AGAIN IT IS YOUR RELIGION YOUR GOD...PROOF IS ON YOU.....NOT US.

If I said I had seen and knew space aliens were real....Would you have to prove me wrong ro would I have to prove myself right??????????

Think about it.

Things that don't exist "prove" they don't exist by not having any detectable effect on our universe. Your deity and the heaven it supposedly lives in are good examples of things that don't exist.

Never disregard the miraculous. I know all about gravity. I once watched it in the most amazing action as 8 stories of wood and steel scaffolding collapsed on three people right before my eyes and the only thing separating me from them was the glass wall around the revolving door that I was in when it happened. Before it happened, I was heading for that revolving door when I could have sworn I heard someone call my name. I stopped and looked, nobody that would have been calling me, so... The difference between witness and victim. The person who went through the revolving door when I stopped to look for whoever, died. I watched.

Think about the guy who survived dropping forty odd stories along with a window washers platform. The guy with him understandably died, but he didn't. Sure, what was involved in the mechanism of his survival can be reasoned out, reduced to a series of mathematical formulas and scientific explanations for a wildly improbable series of events that diminished the effects of gravity for one and not the other and if that's all you want to believe in fine, but try and replicate it.

I always flinch in embarrassment for the believer who trots out,Atheism is just another kind of faith, because its a tacit admission that taking claims on faith is a silly thing to do. When youve succumbed to arguing that the opposition is just as misguided as you are, its time to take a step back and rethink your attitudes.- Amanda Marcotte
