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.

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.

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

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 Since the old Newtonian theory of gravity has since been replaced by Einstein's theory of relativity, which is in turn currently being replaced by quantum physics.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)
<quoted text>
Indeed, it is the least AND the most you can say on this subject.
And I know. I've already seen it.
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.

OK impress us. State the theory of evolution if you can.

Why is it impossible? You didn't say.

Why does anything require a cause? You didn't say.

Necessity is said to be the mother of invention but otherwise how is necessity relevant to what you just stated?

In fact every thing they say about their Blind Theory of Evolution (i.e. without plan, without design, without any purpose) is nothing but stupidity.!!

First of all, if you say that your god created the universe because the universe had to have come from somewhere, then where did your god come from?
Where did that god's god come from?
And the one before that?

Et cetera.

By the way, here's a little bit of proof to explain how useless it is to deny the fact that is evolution.
If a cow is not milked, there's a high chance it can develop a mastitis, essentially an udder infection that could kill the cow and definitely causes it lots of pain.
This is due to the extent at which cows are milked these days.
The cow has evolved to produce the amount of milk we demand of it with ease.

In the past, had a cow not been milked, it would have been fine, though because of all the changes in its environment and the changes to its need, it had to evolve to process the changes properly.

Christians ... We have stirred up enmity and hatred among them till the Day of Resurrection.--5:14

Allah hath cursed them for their unbelief. Little is that which they believe.--2:88

Dear Allah – A Poem of Reason

Written by Hassan. A narration by Nesrin.

http://m.youtube.com/#/watch...

Dear Allah,
I hope you get this letter, as I’m in a great deal of doubt.
I don’t get your Divine Plan, what’s it all about?

There you are, before a creation to fill
Nothing but Allah, he, himself and his will,

Perhaps you were lonely, though even then you knew.
You’d create angels, to obey and worship you.

Maybe this wasn’t enough, you were not amused,
But why you created Satan, just leaves me bemused

You gave man a mind and a freewill to choose
Then demanded he believe in irrational, contradictory clues

While keeping yourself hidden from all verification
Threatening torture if we don’t prostrate in supplication

You sent prophets and books to a patch of land
And miracles galore to that sacred area of sand

But before man can scientifically record and corroborate
You decide communications must now mysteriously terminate

You say you are testing mankind — to see who is true
Though saint and sinner, you already knew

But worse than this is the consequence of this test
It’s results are iniquitous — perverse at best

Those, who accept on faith, myths handed down
Will enjoy eternal bliss and never have to frown

While those who insist on reasoning with their brain
Will be sent to the fire of Hell to suffer eternal pain

Dear Allah none of this makes sense to me
Please tell me if there is something I’ve failed to see

And I don’t understand when so many suffer and die
What is the reason — I cannot see why?

Was it a test for the baby, her father or mother
Or was she sacrificed to test someone other?

When you planned all this did you count every tear
Was your ultimate purpose that we tremble in fear

And when all are in Heaven or Hell — as dictated by fate
Will you sit back on your throne to shouts of “Allah is Great”?

There's also loads of great stuff around right now if you go out and look for it.

One of my favourite live gigs was Mumford supporting Arcade Fire. At a recent Muse gig, I saw "The Joy Formidable" play a blinding set so I've started following them too.

Clearly, you are a very ignorant, illiterate and bigoted little bubba who obviously knows nothing about the world's religions.

PEDOPHILIA: THE JEWISH TALMUD'S DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS

“When a grown-up man has intercourse with a little girl it is nothing.”
(Keth 11b)

“A Jew may have sex with a child as long as the child is less than nine years old.”
(Sanh 54b)

R.abbi Joseph said:“Come and hear! A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition and if her deceased husband’s brother cohabits with her, she becomes his.”
(Sanh. 55b)

“A girl who is three years of age and one day may be betrothed by cohabitation.“
.(Yeb. 57b)

“A maiden aged three years and a day may be acquired in marriage by coition, and if her deceased husband’s brother cohabited with her she becomes his.”
(Sanh. 69a, 69b, also discussed in Yeb. 60b)

It was taught: Rabbi Simeon b. Yohai stated: A proselyte who is under the age of three years and one day is permitted to marry a priest, for it is said, But all the women children that have not known man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves, and Phineas (who was priest, the footnote says) surely was with them.
(Yeb. 60b)

. "A Gentile girl who is three years old can be violated."
(9boda Sarah 37a)

"A Jew may violate but not marry a non-Jewish girl."
(7ad. Shas. 2:2)

"A Jew may do to a non-Jewess what he can do. He may treat her as he treats a piece of meat."
(Hadarine, 20, B; Schulchan 9ruch, Choszen Hamiszpat 348)

Christianity is even worse dipstick

And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat.--Leviticus 26:29

Will you be having fries with that?

Because by this deed thou hast given great occasion to the enemies of the LORD to blaspheme, the child also that is born unto thee shall surely die. And the LORD struck the child that Uriah's wife bare unto David, and it was very sick.... And it came to pass on the seventh day, that the child died.--2 Samuel 12:14-15

How godlike killing a innocent childI am so impressed with your god. NOT!

My beloved put in his hand by the hole of the door, and my bowels were moved for him.--Song of Solomon 5:4

I guess he took a rather large dump left a steaming pile?
