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.

Finally you're getting the point.
Atheism is not a religion, if it were a religion then how could a religion replace religion? It sounds like something you'd say.
Religion is the vacuum, religion is the dearth of reason found in the minds of the simple.
So a negative will replace all positive aspects of religion.

A thing which cannot be defined, will replace the well defined religions.

A philosophy on which no two people agree on any thing (except of course the Big Negation) will create order and discipline in the land?

Boy you are sure living in the fool's paradise!!

Creationist piece of sh*t to too dumb to understand evolution is already in use across most industries.

Unlike creationist lies.

Are you saying that the abuse, rape and the murder of little girls caused by your religion is a positive aspect?

No. Terrorizing people with cruel and barbaric punishments will "create order and discipline in the land". Repressing the human tendency towards individuality and creative expression will help "create order and discipline in the land" as will treating your female population as if they were little better than cattle. In fact, you treat your cattle and your damn camels a LOT better than you treat your women. A very fine simulation of "order and discipline in the land" can be created by force feeding every man, woman and child with a primitive and repressive religion from birth to their often messy deaths.

The sad thing is ... it works. Your primitive and repressive religion as manipulated by your dictatorial theocratic governments is the only thing that can keep you people from killing each other. Y'all were a lot better off before the 20th Century encroached your deserts, exposing you to vehicles and weapons that turned your quaint and relatively harmless 'jihads' into global peace threatening affairs. Oh well ... maybe our next attempts at civilization won't make the same mistakes we did.

Note to future civilizations: Leave the Arabs alone. Let them scramble about in their deserts. Do not try to invite them into civilized discourse. Do not ask them to participate in World Affairs. They will kill you in your sleep. They will enslave your women. They will chop off your heads. They will have no remorse as these things are all endorsed by Allah as proper treatment of 'Infidels', who we who have embraced reason are by definition.

We aren't playing the "educational barrier" with you.
We're showing others how willfully ignorant you are by ignoring all the evidence.

Answer me this simple question:
Why are you denying evolution, a fact that has tons of evidence for it, yet you believe in something that has ZERO evidence for it?

see, EW, the problem is - you actually have no idea what evolution is.

I'm sure whatever you think evolution is, is pure nonsense, absolutely.

The trouble is EW, what you think is evolution- is not evolution. What you disagree with is nothing more than your ignorant bastarisation of a concept you're too lazy to learn about - and STILL - despite that you know nothing about it, you still think it is wrong - whatever it is.

:D
amazing. you guys are so hopeless!
The best part is when he claims we never showed him any evidence.

Look to the Middle East.
Tons of people arrange marriages for their 8 year old daughters.
A girl was beaten to death because the "husband" didn't want her anymore.
He got a new "wife" and lived his life, without any legal issues.

All in the name of their god.

<quoted text>Educational Barrier again. It's a theory, show me evidence, you dummies live for that stuff. So did you just read a book or did you do the tests yourself? Did you prove evolution or did you read a book? Your concept is more of a perception, that's all. I'm not hopeless, but even that is a lay opinion. Show me the evidence. Test your might. Come on!
Dude, if you can't understand the difference between the theory of evolution and evolution, then I don't understand how you don't accidentally kill yourself by drinking bleach when you meant to go to the beach.

Same with the THEORY of gravity.
It is there to explain an ALREADY CONFIRMED thing that exists; gravity.

You are incredibly idiotic.
Wikipedia is a perfectly good start point, for they list all their sources at the bottom of the page.

You didn't even look at the pages because you don't want to know anything about evolution.
You wish to continue to be ignorant and will never look at any of the evidence presented.

There's no point in treating you like an intelligent human being for you obviously are not.

Let me put this as simply as I can for you.

Religion will be replaced by an absence of religion.

yes, I ate my breakfast. As you know, my breakfast is the result of evolution. Why are you having trouble with this?
why do you not know what artificial selection is?

Or you could say a pink talking unicorn did it all. Only one of those three options is actually reproducible.

[QUOTE]

By keeping us fed & medicated.
Seriously - do you really not know about artificial selection at all? for real?

why not?
Because he's a creationist.

We all know about creationists, they're the laughing stock of religious people.

What do you replace water with when you've emptied it out of a glass?

"Nothing," that's right, there's nothing in the glass anymore, so you've replaced water with nothing.

Though you won't understand this explanation, because you can't understand even the simplest of logic.

The great apes have 24 pairs of chromosomes, humans have 23 pairs of chromosomes.

Huzzah! I hear you cry. This would appear to indicate that humans and apes are unrelated.

However the missing chromosomal material in the human is to be found fused to the end of the human chromosome number two, which includes a tell tale double telomere showing where the human species branched away from the apes.

The theory of evolution allows scientists to make predictions regarding the results of experiments, it[the theory] has NEVER been ound wanting.

It is beyond dispute that you are directly related to the apes...I'm making the assumption that you're human.

Science has moved on so far and yet you creationists are still trying without success to deconstruct Darwin.

Your ignorance of what the theory of evolution actually entails is sad.

You didn't "come from a primate". You ARE a primate. All humans are of the order of primates.

http://anthro.palomar.edu/animal/table_humans...

And all primates have the same "ancestor".

Evolution is real. It happened, and continues to happen. Don't believe me? Tell me WHY there must be a new flu vaccine every year, or what YOU use your appendix for.
