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.

Ans.
I combined your posts on the two threads into one post and post a common reply.
01. You are overreacting sister, that too in a hurry and without thinking.
When I spoke of God not speaking "directly to any human" is from the point of "legislation". I.e. No one can come and claim that "God said to me so and so, so please follow me".
This is type of revelation, which is only send to prophets of God.
As for as people being in "touch with God and feeling His presence and having metaphysical connection with Him, all these are possible, but no rules and / or regulations can be derived from such personal experiences".
We do not worship Quran, this is again your misunderstanding Sister. Quran is book of revelation from God, it is Word of God, but we do not worship it, we worship only God.
If any one worships any book, he or she is on the wrong path.
02. Jesus as a Prophet of God spoke to God thru the medium of Holy Spirit, who was an angel of God.
It was later when Christians made this "Holy Spirit" as their "personal servant" so to say and do all "odd jobs" fro them.
This is not what is the Islamic concept of Holy Spirit. He was no one else but Archangel Gabriel, who used to come to Jesus with messages from God, and he used to come to every prophet of God, including the last and final prophet.
That is why Sister, I asked you to read Quran and learn about Islam, because accusing us of worshipping this and that.
We Muslims do not worship anything else except God / Allah in purest form and do not associate any one either in His personality or in His attributes and in His Powers.
In Islam Sister, you will find pure monotheism and nothing else.
Worthless religious babbling from the lying troll with no proof of god.

Atheist zealots and Christians zealots seem so much alike.
Both like mythology, seem intolerant of criticism and lack a sense of humor.

I deleted your off topic spam that nobody here has brought up. Perhaps you can actually participate in a conversation and actually answer questions instead of mindlessly spamming from your scribd page.

Then maybe you should advocate for the end of Muslim child brides?

Reflect on it.

Wrong.

Various theocracies began arising "a mere 5000 years" ago, but the oldest archaeological evidence of an "organized" religion, i.e. the worship of lunar deities, was found in Jericho, Palestine and dates to about 10,000 BC. or 12,000 years ago.

The oldest archaeological evidence of human religious beliefs, i.e ritualized burial of human remains, is dated to around 100,000 BC.

Evidence would be nice! But! Do you agree the planet is around 4.7 billion years old and the human ape is a mere 2 million years old at the most?
Actually, the closest estimate of the Earth's age is 4.54 billion years old.

Why does the bible need to always remind us that god is good? Shouldn't his actions be enough? Guess not! Why Batman and Superman are better!

Why do atheists always try to change the subject whenever their "facts" are exposed as unsupported opinions?

The age of this planet aka Earth and everything else in this galaxy is estimated to be 4.5 to 4.6 billion years old.

What "human ape"? FYI the fabled missing link between apes and humans has never been found, bubba. The DNA and mtDNA evidence says homo sapiens arose between 50,000 and 100,000 years ago which means homo sapiens have had religious beliefs from the beginning of their existence on this planet.

Legalizing pedophilia is just part of godless atheism's agenda. Is this an inconvenient truth for you, bubba?
Not really, as if you notice your linky didn't even support your assertion. In fact I'd say you were the one with the problem since, like many fundies, you're COMPLETELY obsessed with the subject.
