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.

The sad thing is that there is much "music" these days that can't really be classified as music.

Ans.
That shows where your reasoning is wrong.
So you think fruits "Cry out" when we pluck them?
Like wise when we slaughter animals for our food?
And we mill corn for our bread?
You have no knowledge about the food chain, do you?
It is Creator's responsibility to provide for food for all of those whom He has created (and Quran confirms this), so this is the foolproof way in which He has achieved it.
Do you not know that if "every seed" of every fruit bearing tree germinated, the world would be full of nothing else but that tree.
So we eat fruits and thank our Creator, who made these fruits so palatable, so fresh and so tasty.
We eat the flesh of cattle and thank our Creator who made these cattle and gave us power over them.
We drink fresh water, we enjoy the cooling breeze,… and every thing invokes in us the Gratitude and Praise for Mercy, Wisdom and Knowledge of our Creator for all of these and much more of His favaours which we cannot count even if we try to (Also Confirmed in Quran).
So we fell down on our faces and thank the One Power who did all of that.
Allah Knows Best.

On opposite edges of Copley Square, separated by the makeshift memorial to the Boston Marathon bombing victims, two oases of calm reopened Wednesday and lured hundreds of visitors from the crowded plaza and surrounding streets.

even though I`m a middle aged member of the `establishment` I think there`s some valid social commentary in a a lot of `rap`.

http://www.youtube.com/watch... which is my favourite!

The genre of rap-porn which promotes objectification of women and the notion of easy money however you want to make it...or the "blunts, 40`s and bitches" brigade as I like to call them, do nothing at all which is worthwhile and create the very social problems they `rap` about. I`m talking about wu-tang clan et al here.

I agree, some is good.
Such as things by the Beastie Boys, or a more recent group, the Gorillaz.

1. This is a "masterpiece" Question of every so called Atheist and thy think that by posting it, they have broken the "spinal cord" of all Believers in God.
But in reality this is a very childish question, because it is God, on which the Creation Process stops, both literally and logically.
He is the alone Who was present before Every Creation and He is the "Only One" in this entire Universe who was Ever Present and shall never die.
a. If some one created God (as you people think), then who created that some one and then who created him….it will be endless cycle.
Indeed. And it is possible that there IS an endless cycle. Of course your position requires you to break this cycle and invoke something that is uncaused:
MUQ wrote:
b. That is why logic and reason also demands that this process must end and that is it ends.
However that being the case, the universe itself could also be uncaused. You will object to this, of course that would only be an exercise in EXTREME hypocrisy.

02. You deluded people can only call "evolution as a fact".
Your Super Guru Charles Darwin was more humble and less confident (because he was a batter and more educated scholars than all of you people combined"….he was NEVER sure what he was proposing.
But you people "his pupil" have gone above the teacher himself and call evolution as a :"fact".
And equating TOE with Theory of Gravity shows that you have no knowledge of either of them!!
Actually MUQ your knowledge of anything scientific is pretty abysmal, even by fundie standards. Yes, like all good scientists proposing new ideas, Darwin's claims were tentative. Fortunately for the most part his claims bore fruit:

http://www.topix.com/forum/news/evolution/T9Q...

And that is why evolution is a scientific theory AT LEAST on a par with the theory of gravity, if not better. Since the old Newtonian theory of gravity has since been replaced by Einstein's theory of relativity, which is in turn currently being replaced by quantum physics. At the moment evolution is well established in the scientific community and there is no competing scientific alternative that has been proposed.

There are of course a bunch of religious nuts who say something about invisible Jewish magic proving reality wrong, but who cares what they say?(shrug)

It was ever thus.

I was looking at some old music shows. The good stuff charted much lower than I seemed to remember, 90% of the content was very poor and in many cases, totally forgotten.

And, of course, one of his most important discoveries was humans in Terra Del Fuego who demonstrated the ability to physically adapt to their environment. Darwin's discovery is especially relevant to the scientific confirmation of bacteria and virus which, lo and behold, have also demonstrated this ability.

Better to keep your mouth closed and be thought a fool than open your mouth removing all doubt.

You cannot even state the theory of evolution.

And it is NOT possible that the universe is uncaused.

The universe began to exist. This is required due to the impossibility of the infinite regression, which would require an infinite series of actual events.

Something which begins to exist requires a cause, as since it begins to exist, it has exhibited non-existence, and therefore is contingent or dependent, as opposed to "necessary".

If something is necessary, it could not be non-existent, so the universe is not necessary, but dependent. Something dependent requires causation.

Now say something stupid.
