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

Islam is essentially unitarianism. The belief in one God. His encounters with Nestorian monks I suspect had a lot to do with the real founding of that religion.

You are wrong, Islam does have a Negative as well as Positive element in its basic creed. Listen to this Basic Creed of Islam after saying this once becomes a Muslim:
a. AL ASHADU :(I DECLARE)(POSITIVE ACTION)
B. AL LA ILAHA (THAT THEIR IS NO DEITY (WORTH WORSHIPPING)(DENIAL, A NEGATIVE ACT)
C. ILLA ALLAH (EXCEPT ALLAH)(A VERY POSITIVE ASSERTION)
D. WA AL ASHADU (AND I DECLARE)(POSITIVE ACTION)
E. ANNA MUHAMMAD ROSOOL-AL-ALLAH (THAT MOHAMMAD IS A MESSENGER OF ALLAH)(ANOTHER POSITIVE ACTION)
No one can have any ideology based on only negation, that is why no one is able to define what is atheism.
And no one will be able to build any society or any civilization based on negative thinking.
So please rake your brains and bring a definition of Atheism that has some thing positive in it, not jugglery of words.

Ans.
You are just trying to use "verbal jugglery" and trying to act like a funny way, just as drowning men grab straws.
To compare "Atheism" which is a "major system in the world" with Alien Life in Universe shows that you are comparing apples against oranges.
Why do you not admit that you "do not have a positive definition" of what Atheism is.
It is a negative definition that there is No God and there is No religion….. but what takes the place of God and religion in atheism, you have to declare that also.
PS:
If this is your level of arguments, then why do you not become Christian and "explain" Trinity in common language to the multitude"!!

Disbelief is "willful rejection of truth, once one gets convinced of it" so it has both positive and negative actions in it.
And disbelievers reject a particular faith but stick to whatever faith their forefathers and society stick to.
It is totally different from Atheism, who reject God and religion and have nothing to fill it with.
That is why I said that atheists are most unreasonable and illogical people on the face of earth.

Islam confirms Krishna, Buddha, Mitra, Zoroastrian?

Nope. It is a barbaric Arab religion created to give blood thirsty looters something to rally behind. It was spread by the sword as you have admitted and just as in ancient pagan Arabic religion days where you had Allah the moon god and his two goddess daughters you confessed in modern Islam you have Allah and his two goddess daughters!

So really you worship at least three of not more gods.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!

I can see now why you people can't maintain your own jet planes or locate, extract or refine your own oil. To obtain your level of religious zeal requires indoctrination that must preclude (almost) everything else. Your religion has made you a slave and a rather nasty one, all things considered.

Islamists are commanded by their scripture to murder non-Islamists.

I don't call that a "positive attitude".

But maybe I'm too picky.

They just enjoy watching them die.

Thats strange logic. So you are saying liberals like Muslims cause they hate America? I am sure liberals and muslims hold diverse points of view over a range of things, so generalisations like this can be misguided.

Not believing in things (unicorns, ogres, faeries, leprechauns, gods, etc.) that can't be supported with verifiable evidence IS a positive thing... unless of course your goal is to instill a faith based belief in someone else, then I can see how you would think it's a negative.

Atheism IS a faith-based belief.

"‘Atheism’ means the negation of theism, the denial of the existence of God."
-Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

"Atheism is the position that affirms the nonexistence of God. It proposes positive belief rather than mere suspension of disbelief."
-Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy

"Atheism is to be distinguished from agnosticism, which leaves open the question of whether there is a god or not, professing to find the question unanswered or unanswerable; for the atheist, the nonexistence of God is a certainty."
-Encyclopedia Britannica

"In fact, atheism is an active belief that God doesn’t exist."
-Jonathan Safarti, PhD
