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

Communists were the "Real Atheists" that ruled the world and every one knows how cruel, barbaric and mass killers they were....of their own people usually.

Our Capitalist Atheists are only a bunch of loose thread types of fellows, who have no philosophy, no central thought and no idea of how an Atheist society should function.

They are united on a negative point, there is no god and there is no religion. Nothing positive in their places.

How can they create a civilization, with only Negaives? No one did that in the past.

Same old nonsense. Communists weren't motivated by a lack of religion and religious people have been equally evil. The simple fact is that religion is irrelevant to morality altogether. We now know that people are the product of nature and nurture.

Just look at the nonsense posted on these boards by religionists and 'people of faith',(as I believe Lincoln describes himself). If they had their way Creationism would be taught in schools as if it were science. Where would undermining secularism in that way leave the USA? The UK has its problems too due to religionism and religious superstition.

Religion is divisive and based on superstitions. There is no more evidence of god(s) than of pixies. People should only believe anything to the extent the belief is justified by reason and evidence.

One might be entitled to one's beliefs, but they can affect one's attitude and affect outcomes...

Lack of religion didn't cause communism, or 'make it worse'. Communism or Stalin (unlike Nazism or Hitler) couldn't find a use for religion.

Humanism, philosophy, science, freedom, democracy, etc. You wouldn't understand. People aren't united by atheism. Ssecularists aren't divided by religious tribalism.

We have a civilisation for all of humanity. What harms it is religious tribalism - including Islamism and Zionism.

Religion = superstition
Theology = mythology
Blasphemy = satire
Christian name = first name

We are all just human and there's no evidence for Abrahamic god(s) or any of these....

Not really my choice for looking up fact but you asked for it here it is.
But you see, life came from micro bacteria. Not from a puddle.
That's like saying a bird is born from a tree, instead of saying it properly; a bird is born from the egg it hatches in.

Thinking has pointed out that you have never seen anything you will ever believe in. It's funny, you'll believe things that are unsupported by evidence and are extremely outdated (the bible), yet you won't believe something that has tons of evidence and is updated most frequently.

Of course you'd give a link to a creation site. In your mind, it's better to believe goddidit rather than look at evidence and come up with a real explanation.

Evolution is a fact; everything evolves.
The Theory of Evolution is there only to attempt to explain evolution.
Just as the Theory of Gravity is there to attempt to explain gravity, another observed factual item that exists in nature.

You people always try to say that things like communism were atheistic ideas.
In what way does a communist say "I don't believe in god, therefore I am a communist"?
It never happens.

Communism wasn't created because people don't believe in a god.

You can simply go to your local museum to see the copies they've made of fossils and other things. It's a shame that none of these people even look at the evidence though. They claim that they want evidence, yet whatever evidence you point them to, they say is not evidence and continue their ignorance.

What is that now 14 and counting, and still no 100% factual evidence for evolution, I am not surprised. So you can cut and paste wow what a thrill you TB c&p still does not prove evolution.
The point about antibiotic resistance does not make a complete case for evolution but is evidence that it happens. Yes, I cut and pasted a small piece from Wiki. And that simple action alone was enough to demonstrate that you have no idea what you are talking about, period. Note also that you did not even admit to your mistake. Typical of YECer's though.(shrug)

Once again let me tell you the fact that adaptation is not evolution it is an inbuilt design feature built in by GOD during creation.
Your claim is baseless.

How would waiting for you to produce the 100% factual evidence you claim, me lying once again you prove you lack of logic in argument.
Of the two of us I have not lied. You have so far not addressed the evidence.
You gotta be kidding wrote:
Good “theories CONTAIN facts” so evolution is not a fact now we are getting to the bottom of your argument, first you claim evolution is a fact now you agree that it is a myth, well done.
I have not agreed that evolution is a myth for the simple fact that it is not a myth. There are facts of evolution and there is the theory of evolution. Scientific theories are explanatory models. NO scientific theory is a fact on its own, nor do they get "proven" to become "laws" or "facts". This applies to EVERY scientific theory, be it evolution, plate tectonics, germ theory of disease or the theory of gravity.
You gotta be kidding wrote:
Again right I do not believe in the “theory” of gravity I believe in the fact of gravity.
You don't even believe in gravity either. You said mass and gravity are unrelated, which is patently absurd.

You're a reality-denying young-Earther who doesn't believe in any scientific field ever INCLUDING gravity who claims to know more than the entire scientific community therefore evolution is wrong because an invisible magic Jew did it all differently.

So far there is only one of us who has evidence.

It ain't you.
