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.

Genesis 1:25-27 (Humans were created after the other animals.)
And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good. And God said, Let us make man in our image.... So God created man in his own image.
Genesis 2:18-19 (Humans were created before the other animals.)
And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.
Genesis 1:27 (The first man and woman were created simultaneously.)
So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Genesis 2:18-22 (The man was created first, then the animals, then the woman from the man's rib.)
And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them.... And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
Genesis 2 is a summary of what was told in Genesis 1 not a chronological retelling of creation.
Genesis 1:27 does not indicate that God made male and female humans at the same time it says.(after the creation of the land animals) God made Man (singular) in the image of God created He (YHVH) him (man)it then says he made male and female animals, not humans. Verse 27 is a continuation of the pervious verse, verse 26 (verse division were added by humans) and the use of the semi colon shows a continuation of subject matter from Verse 26.

Post your irrevocable evidence for evolution, if I am so ignorant post it here to educate me, no one else has even tried even though I have asked the best the evolution tag team can offer.

<quoted text>
Again it is the Bible nothing else,
First you cannot use differing names alone as error or contradiction because of different translations the form of the Bible Hebrew to English and the back of the Bible Hebrew – Greek to English, there may even have been intermediary steps in translation, also as today people were known by different names by different people, let’s look at the name Robert also know as Bob, Bobby, Rob, Robby, even Bert and Berty.
Next let’s look at the genealogies of Yehoshua (Mistakenly called Jesus), there are two totally separate genealogies for his line back to David, One in the book of Matthew and the other in the book of Like. On first glance there is a problem until you look at them correctly, one is from his mothers lineage and the other form his father, they split with David's sons: Nathan (Mary's side?) and Solomon (Joseph's side). One ends with the husband of Mary the other with the father of AMRY ALSO NAMES Joseph.
Next In Joshua 10 only the King of Jerusalem is captured not the city and later in Joshua 10 the surrounding country side but not the city is captures as described later in the book of Joshua.
You see no problems .
Translation:-

"The text book on how I should live is full of errors, but does not matter."

It's good job you don't anything to do with real text books.

Atheism will never replace religion because atheism is another fundamentalist belief system that is as highly vulnerable to science facts overturning its main theses as any Christian or Muslim fundamentalist belief system. Atheism relies on atheists deliberately ignoring any facts that counter the fundamentalist belief system, e.g. the fact that the human brain has evolved to process spiritual events and why is that if, as atheists claim, there's nothing there to process? Another atheist blind eye to fact is the ignoring of 40,000 years of human beings devoting enormous amounts of time and energy dealing with supposedly imaginary forces.

No, only agnosticism follows the scientific method and is a real philosophy of inquiry. Atheism has made up its mind by ignoring any facts that counter its ideology. Just like any fundamentalist belief system. Atheism too is in its End Times along with other failed fundamentalist social control ideologies of men masquerading as the "Word of God".

And, looking at the title of this thread, this should be a debate with some kind of focus on atheism and/or religion.

Biological evolution is neither. There is a whole Topix Forum dedicated to biological evolution. The only reason you would try to debate biological evolution here instead of in the proper forum is that you know your lack of basic science understanding wouldn't be tolerated over there.

The you don't understand what atheism is, but thank you for such a funny strawman argument.

Atheists don't claim that deities could not possibly exist. Atheists claim that there is is not now, nor has there ever been, any evidence for the existence of any deities, so consideration of such is meaningless.

Wow aren't you just mature. If you are an example of what the evolution tag team have left then I guess I win Game - Set and Match.

So far no one on the evolution tag team has been able to post the most basic proof for evolution. Instead we have belated the meaning of the words adaption, theory, evolution and science, I have been personally attacked and there have been failed attempts to belittle me. All have failed, as evolutionist came and fell one at a time I have stood and won at each turn. I have not faltered under the attacks I have stood strong and correct through it all. So now that the evolution tag team have gone from trying to discuss science to trying to attack me personally to trying to attack the Bible the end has come. This discussion started about the pagan faiths vs traditional Jewish/Christian faith and rightly went on to evolution but now the evolution tag team have dragged it into the mud. So no more, enough time wasted. Kudos to those who have actually debated and a lemon to the rest.
