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.

Here's an interesting situation for you being in Britain to ponder. ;)

During the Battle of Britain one of the determining factors was the lack of fuel and ability to fight over British airspace

The Messerschmitt fighter had a short range And the Spitfire wasn't much better

3000 miles away in Japan they had the Zero fighter, 1000 mile range. Cheap to manufacture.
Armed with both Cannon & machine guns

Japan Germany and Italy were allies in the axis
If Germany had used Japanese zeros the Battle of Britain would've been the decidedly different.

Perhaps the greatest irony of all in World War II
The Japanese had a perfect surprise attack Pearl Harbor
Six months later they lost four carriers to inferior aircraft

But superior-Intelligence capability.

Like the British wizards at Bletchley Park w/Enigma Machines, they cracked the Japanese naval code and ambushed the fleet.

Religion also has nothing to offer its believers. It simply lies about it. That's the only real different. Why would anyone want a religion based on lies anyway?

If only you were smart enough to understand his quotes.

I cannot imagine a God who rewards and punishes the objects of his creation, whose purposes are modeled after our own -- a God, in short, who is but a reflection of human frailty. Neither can I believe that the individual survives the death of his body, although feeble souls harbor such thoughts through fear or ridiculous egotisms.

To quote Einstein....

It was, of course, a lie what you read about my religious convictions, a lie which is being systematically repeated. I do not believe in a personal God and I have never denied this but have expressed it clearly. Albert Einstein, 1954, The Human Side

Wait... what was that again Albert?

I do not believe in a personal God. Albert Einstein, 1954
I do not believe in a personal God. Albert Einstein, 1954

Korolev had beat Wernher Von Braun to putting a man into space.

So... How could Wernher Von Braun's team be behind that then!?

Wernher Von Braun & Korolev had both read up the modern basis of rocketry by Polish Russian Konstantin Ciolkowski!

In the U.S the main person to put man into space was Polish German Wernher Von Braun from Poznan.

But... In the Soviet Union Ukrainian Russian Korolev had put the first man into space by the workd of Konstantin Ciolkowski!

That is very nice, then please provide a Definition of Atheism that has "all these catch words"!!

That is what I am asking all along. To have a definition of Atheism that has some "positive traits" in it.

And how can we find out who is an Athiest.

Come on, you have done fine, a few more brain storming sessions and you will get it, may be in 2050!!

Well, the hope is that religion will be recognized as the superstition it is and gradually fade away.
How something will replace religion when you are not even able to define it?

You cannot leave people hanging in the void, do you?

Please explain what is this Atheism, so people can analyze it and accept it.

Otherwise it is just a wish list.

I agree that most of religions based on superstition and non reasonable grounds and racism and nationalism might fade away.

But true religion based on solid foundation of reason and logic and truth and revelation from God shall survive, any shock and tidal wave of Atheism as they did in past.

These so called Atheists are not a "new phenomenon" they are as old as the religion themselves.

There were always people in every age, who claimed there is no God, but they were in miniscule minority, now there numbers have gone up slightly, due to the Modern Materialistic Philosophy.

But their days are numbered as you cannot hold on a falsehood for more time.

Look at Nazism, Look at Fascism, Look at Communism, look at Socialism?

Atheism will find the same fate as other "isms"!!

A thing which can not be even defined with a positive words, how it can survive? It is only a deception, a mirage!!

Atheism is a lack of belief in god.

Your requirement that is be "positive" like your claimed cult / religion (which it is not) is foolish and ignorant.

You repeat your stupidity because you know you are wrong.

In the meantime, no proof of your f*cking bullsh*t god whatsoever and you continue to lie while selling us moral superiority.

The only deception here is MUQ with no proof of god, who knows he's a liar and doesn't know when to go away and leave atheists alone.

Nobody is converting to your stupid cult, in fact you guys are being arrested one by one because you guys are stupid enough to enact the bullsh*t written in your violent, hateful rag cult instruction manual.

I've read there was some technology swapping between the Japs and Krauts ... engines and such that could be shipped via submarine. I think the Japs used a German designed engine in their 'Tony' fighter, which departed from the normal Jap air-cooled engines. They didn't like it much. There was so much politics and good-old-boyism in the German aircraft procurement process that a lot of good designs (mainly by Heinkel) got left behind. They were probably too 'proud' to copy anything the Japs had. I bet the lightly armored Zero would have been a good match against Spits with their puny .303 machine guns.
