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.

You're still talking fairytale books
If you want history...
Like those of the Jewish writer Josephus, the works of the ancient historians Pliny, Suetonius and Tacitus do not provide proof that Jesus Christ ever existed as a "historical" character.
Pliny the Younger, Roman Official and Historian (62-113 CE)
Tacitus, Roman Politician and Historian,(c. 56-120 CE)
Suetonius, Roman Historian (c. 69-c. 122 CE)
When addressing the mythical nature of Jesus Christ, one issue repeatedly raised is the purported "evidence" of his existence to be found in the writings of Flavius Josephus, the famed Jewish general and historian who lived from about 37 to 100 CE.....

.....In the final analysis there is no evidence that the biblical character called "Jesus Christ" ever existed.....
Whose "final analysis", bubba? Yours? LOL

Fairytale books, huh? The Bible was indeed written by men and even though we now know unscrupulous “Jews” and “Christians” corrupted the original texts by inserting their own words into Genesis, Isaiah, Jeremiah, etc and the Gospels, and especially Paul’s writings and claimed these corruptions were the “word of God”, theological sleuths have isolated the majority of the corrupted texts (see Dead Sea Scrolls). There are, however, some books of the Bible which defy "rational" explanation. Genesis 1 is a good example. How could ancient men know about the Big Bang or articulate a description of the EXACT sequence of species appearance on this planet?

BTW Jesus aka Yeshua ben Yosef was NOT a “Jew”. He was indeed Yehudim, aka Palestinian Arab, but he was born into and raised in the Essene tradition and was NOT a “Jew”. The etymology of the word “Jew” indicates it wasn’t even invented until the 12th century AD. And, he was not the founder of the “Christian” religion. His followers were called Ebionites, Nazarenes, etc. and those who refused to convert to “Christianity” fled deeper into the ME or were condemned to death as heretics by the “Christian” church starting after the Council of Nicea circa 330 AD.

Most scholars consider the "Testimonium Flavianum" to be a forgery created by the Roman church. Josephus knew about the Essenes were and would never have referred to Jesus as a “Jew” or his followers as “Christians” since they’re were no “Christians” in Josephus’ time.

Discovering the lies about the "mythical" Jesus created by the early Roman church is just the first step in the search for the truth about the real Jesus, who is infinitely much more awesome and amazing than any of the silly myths fabricated about him.

Oh, I totally agree. However you may note that nothing that is possible is necessarily due to "divine power" or whatever, unless your definition of such includes the mundane.(shrug)
Or perhaps what you call "divine power" is really just the operation of natural laws our ever evolving knowledge of science doesn't really comprehend yet......hmmmmm?

The medical journals are full of documented "miracle" healings, i.e. spontaneous remissions, of terminal cancers or some other deadly disease occurring for atheists, the non-religious, and the religious of all sects.

What I would call an example of "divine power" is when God overrides the operation of His own natural laws and one of the best examples of this is the inexplicably high levels of CO2 that have accumulated in our atmosphere, the highest levels in 450,000 years of earth's history according to ice core samples. We should be 100 years into a huge glaciation event, the earth should resemble a gigantic snowball. We aren't and it doesn't. Why?

I know right! It's like Christian fan fiction I mean wow! I almost wonder if he's a Poe putting us on. Seriously can people be that stupid? Genesis 1 has the Big Bang and the proper sequence of things? So he must be claiming we had plants before the sun?

People heal all the time at rapid rates outside medical norms. Our body is actually set up for this potential because of the evolutionary process. Also people can be misdiagnosed which accounts for most of these so called miraculous healings.

Again you cannot assign properties to a god until you have demonstrated a god exists.

Yes :-)
Why will atheism replace religion?:-) and when by next Tuesday?
First we need to find atheists who are not in fact agnostics.

Religion will stay around for as long as humanity is around. Humans continue to dream so they can progress and continue to live their lives and god is another dream or a goal that humans use to live their lives regardless of the existence of god. As long as we humans continue to dream and make goals in life religion will never fade away

So now you think you can accurately say what will be happening on earth say 200,000 years from now?

Care to discuss it over a stack of abandoned church deeds?

You Christholes are funny like that!:))

Basically, you've got nothing again.
Neither do you. Have you seen evolution occur? If so, when and where?
