Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,385

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

In view of such harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human understanding, am able to recognize, there are yet people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me for the support of such views!
Einstein - quoted in Jammer, p. 97
"The word god is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honourable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can (for me) change this."
-- Albert Einstein,

"I received your letter of June 10th. I have never talked to a Jesuit priest in my life and I am astonished by the audacity to tell such lies about me. From the viewpoint of a Jesuit priest I am, of course, and have always been an atheist."

- Albert Einstein, letter to Guy H. Raner Jr, July 2, 1945, responding to a rumor that a Jesuit priest had caused Einstein to convert from atheism;

Your creationist lies are no match for the bitter truth.

Also, your argument from authority fails entirely - makes no difference whether Einstein believed or didn't - YOU HAVE NO PROOF OF GOD - so sh*t the f*ck up you creationist troll.

It must be Lincoln's puppet. I wonder why these Christians are so desperate they resort to all these sock puppets?

So he believed believers were bigots....you think he considered himself a bigot? He certainly considered you a bigot.

Einstein would probably have called you 'as dense as Osmium' for posting that particular quote in support of your position...but then it's no mystery that you're dense...but not very sharp.

The fanatical atheists are like slaves who are still feeling the weight of their chains which they have thrown off after hard struggle. They are creatures whoin their grudge against traditional religion as the "opium of the masses"cannot hear the music of the spheres.

Scientific research is based on the idea that everything that takes place is determined by laws of Nature, and therefore this holds for the action of people. For this reason, a research scientist will hardly be inclined to believe that events could be influenced by a prayer, i.e. by a wish addressed to a Supernatural Being.
(Albert Einstein, 1936, The Human Side. Responding to a child who wrote and asked if scientists pray.)

<quoted text>I only asked a simple question "What is atheism and who is an atheist"?

What answers I get tell only negatives, i.e Athiesm do NOT believe in God and Athiesm do not believe in religions....that is fine.

But what they Do believe in?

You cannot have only Negatives to replace a thing that has Positive attributes. Do you.

So far no one is able to give me simple answer to this question.

Is this question "too difficult" for you to answer?
Atheist believe God does not exist.

Note the plural, wetpants.
Khatru:
"Atheists believe there are no gods."

Bingo!!

A positive belief!!
As in Religion!

A positive assertion in a belief put the burden of proof on "you" that there is no gods!

This is a perfect example of an Atheist that DOES believe there is no God.

Not an atheist that has an absence of all beliefs.

Merriam-Webster
athe·ist\ˈā-thē-ist\
noun
: one who believes that there is no deity

Point proven!

To easy.

If you are so certain Einstein had it right, why don't you believe as he did, in Spinoza's god?

The mystical trend of our time, which shows itself particularly in the rampant growth of the so-called Theosophy and Spiritualism, is for me no more than a symptom of weakness and confusion. Since our inner experiences consist of reproductions, and combinations of sensory impressions, the concept of a soul without a body seem to me to be empty and devoid of meaning.(Albert Einstein)

You Christholes never should have went with Einstein, I can do this all day humiliating you :))

Hello Blubber, Einstein was a proponent of a steady state universe and therefore didn't believe in creation.

Do you still respect all that he said?

For KJV's posts, you must take away the new line between the "V" and the quotation mark.
He added some kind of character in his name that isn't recognized by Topix.

He's gotten fed up with losing so now he's losing in a completely different way by spamming.

Simplistically, Spinoza's God is Nature itself.

It's really more complex than that, but I want you to try to understand it and that might be about the best you can do.

Einstein believed in Spinoza's god, not your Buy Bull god.
