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

What does 'deny the religions' mean? Does anyone seriously believe that some ancient prophet brought us the word of a god(s)?

<quoted text>Death was not created it is the result of no life, the lack of life is death. The lack of light is dark. You really need to get an education.
You said your god created "all."
I have an education, even without it, I'm able to understand the meaning of "all."
Creating "all" means creating "everything."
Death is a thing, therefore it is included in "everything."

Your god is a sadist.

Religion and atheism may need each other as they have for the Millennium.

Quantitative vs Qualitative analysis.

<quoted text>I did not say that and you know it, if you want to know the amounts of planets look in a good atlas it will tell you, oh by the way I do know.
You know you said that if your weren't 100% accurate about the age, that you were lying.
So right there, you lied, just like every other fundie.

An atlas can't tell you how many planets there are in other galaxies or universes. That's because no one knows how many there are over there.

How many planets are in our solar system? Just answer the question, it's simple enough.
If you refuse to answer, again, you probably don't know. Even as simple a question as this.

Atheism is a religious term and simply means disbelief in god(s)..
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/atheist
Religion is the last bastion of superstition and as it fades, atheism becomes an increasingly quaint term.

I'm not much interested in atheism/religion per se any more than Egyptian myths. It's the damage religion does that's the concern,(e.g Zionism, Islamism, ID/Creationism, laws against 'blasphemy', religous courts, prejudices against gays and not just oppostition to anal sex, the corruption of the RC Church, etc, etc.)

Religion = superstition
Theology = mythology

Interesting.

That 21st century America does not accept your views may cause some disquiet.
Atheism seem on the decline for various reasons.
May have peaked in the 1960s.

Actual facts:
1. Evolution is proven.
2. The approximate age of Earth is 6.4 billion years.
3. No one was made from sand, then cloned through a person's rib, in order to then have incest and populate the world.
4. Facts, science, knowledge, intelligence, and common sense, all prove and have proved the bible wrong in many cases.
Again, to you crazy fundies, knowledge threatens you. Because there's a difference between belief and knowledge; god is belief, science is knowledge.
Faith and science are not incompatible. There are scientist who also maintain a religious faith.

The facts that evolution takes place are many and are currently irrefutable.

General tip: if you get an argument about science from a creationist site, it's probably inaccurate in some way.

Really?

Why don't you take your proofs that evolution is wrong to the world's scientists.

In the meantime I'll await the imminent mass publicity and your subsequent Nobel Prize award for disproving Darwin.

Nobel Prize was awarded to President Obama, a Christian who added "in God we Trust" to the oath of office.

No, I consider myself an intelligent human being when I demand verifiable evidence for a fantastic claim and refuse to accept it just because someone told me so. Do you have any verifiable evidence that God exists?

Hi Ma,
I now believe you about Nixon and Gary Powers and Bishop Sheen being lovers and members of the anabaptist denial team from Oshkosh or someplace near there. There was that guy Ben Gleck who folks say proved that the aptitude tests were rigged and that they used to pick joke careers for us kids. I do not have to believe I failed at not becoming a priest or funeral director. I can be free. Free is expensive so I am a little short this month so can you send my next check right off? Tx, Ted.
