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

Leprechauns were not the point you said that it is illogical to believe in something that cannot be proved to exist. I am saying it is illogical to dismiss something you cannot disprove, and call it illogical. Logic does not work that way
You are mistaken. It is illogical to believe in that for which there is no substantive evidence. Not believing is the same as dismissal, but is not the same as asserting nonexistence as a positive assertion. Are you perversely attempting to turn logic on its head or are you stupid enough to believe what you write?

Sorry but your understanding of logic is highly twisted. Logic is definitive it demands proof either way for something to be deemed logical is opposite must be illogical both must be definitive ie there must be a proof for both. one cannot claim through belief its self illogical with no logical proof of the disbelief. Example this apple is an apple logical proof visual: disbelief illogical : next the fruit I saw last week was an apple. illogical proof speculation, disbelief logical no proof.

easy as that logic 101.

Now that's twisted!

Let's make this real simple for you --

You claim that a deity exist.

I doubt YOUR claim and await independently verifiable evidence. Got any.

I would respectfully like to ask, why did you turn against God and His word the Bible? I would really like to know what made you make that decision.
I did not turn away from any god. I finally understood what I had been indoctrinated into from birth. The more I read the bible the more I could see that it is nothing but a book written by man. I do not believe in a god or gods.

In the last 2000 years too much harm, unjust, crime, murders, bigotry has been in the name of religion. Too many words in the “good Book” justify the above. Too many follow the words. Too many do not understand where the book came from. Too many believe it came from a god and not men that wrote it.

The bible is a metaphoric allegory of words and phrases. Over twenty centuries of being interpreted, translated, transformed, decoded, and twisted to conform mans words and thoughts. Hundreds of years of the “word” being used to control people to do the will of others.

It matters not the religion or lack of, but man’s heart and what guides it.

It would be best if people took the time to study and understand the bible and the history as well as all neglected and forsaken letters and books that have been purposely left out over the last 2012 years.

I am not trying to change any ones faith but they should challenge it to make you think for yourself and not just, what you are told.

Throughout history, man was told what to believe, could not, and was not allowed to even read the text.

Control of man and his faith or belief was and is a powerful tool to control him.
If you would go as sheep to slaughter then you are blind and cannot know the truth.

Now you ask do I know the truth, yes I know my truth and studies and found a lot of what man holds to be real and or truth is false.

They need to challenge their faith to become totally unlighted. Then they will have true and unadulterated belief. They must admit that it is faith in something that cannot be proven and may not exist at all.

If it is not total faith in an unsubstantiated being that cannot be proven then the faithful could give us undisputed proof and show absolutely the existence of a god without the bible.

Sorry but I do not believe in any god or gods. It is religion and the bible that taught me that.

How can you be afraid of something that you do not believe exist?

I am only afraid of what the belief in a god or gods does to people.

<quoted text>Seriously an ocean "the Pacific" you have mistaken for "a specific", a defined parameter, a limitation? Get an education, you can't argue a outdated insane theology, if you can't even tell the difference between a body of water that's millions of acres wide, and what the period at the end of this sentence implies.
I'm typing on my phone.
that just a typing error.
If you have an android everytime you type it gives options. Of course I know the difference between specific and Pacific.
Their is no one that can type fast on a phone and not make a mistake.
Obviously you have no propriety if you're going to insult me.

Heck, if the history of militant atheism is an example of what a disbelief in God does to people, go with the God choice.

Could be.

"DNA molecules are informational molecules encoding the genetic instructions used in the development and functioning of all known living organisms."

"Information and intelligence are fundamental to the existence of the universe and life and, far from being the end products of an unguided natural process starting with energy and matter, they are involved from the very beginning”

In his book,, Opiate of the Morally Corrupt, chapter 23, Dinesh D'Souza observes, based on numerous quotes from atheists themselves, that a deep prevailing motive of many following the atheistic worldview is the simple desire to escape divine judgment. Just saying.
