Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: News24

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.

I have clearly stated--many times--that it would be great if the US "renditioned" all of America's thousands of sick atheist pedophiles to Saudi Arabia because the Saudis are a thousand times more efficient and effective than the US in the methods they use to deal with pedophiles, i.e. execution.
Why your little pea brain interprets my clearly stated opinion calling for the death penalty for all pedophiles as being "pro-Islam" or "pro-hetero pedophilia" can only be answered by a shrink or a brain surgeon, bubba.
The US only? Right, great idea, we can let those Saudi pedophiles, punish the American pedophiles? Well don't you just have the perfect solution? For the Saudi pedos, anyway.

It's simple, simply copy paste the following: "All sexual relations of people older than 18 with people younger than 16 are wrong."
All you have to do is copy and paste it.
You won't though, because either you condone that behaviour, or you like being called a pedophile for some reason.

Last chance to prove you don't condone pedophilia, nor participate in it.

Simply copy paste the following: "All sexual relations of people older than 18 with people younger than 16 are wrong."
All you have to do is copy and paste it.

(You won't though, yet again you will prove that you think pedophilia is morally acceptable)

Really? Okay, prove it, bubba.

The fundamental structure of the universe is composed of matter or energy. Which one is time?

Want to go all in and reveal some more mental/personality disorders to add to the pile, bubba?

Time is a dimension. Up&Down is a dimension, Fore & Aft is a dimension, Left & Right is a dimension, Past & Present is a dimension all identical.

Imagine that! We live in a universe with four identical dimensions (at least 4)

You are wrong in your assertion that only matter and energy are relevant to the structure of the universe. In particular, space is also a highly relevant factor. And time, along with space, provides spacetime, which is the *geometry* of the universe. It is the interactions of matter and energy within the context of this spacetime geometry that constitutes the universe.

When you're brave enough to prove the god you're lying to us about, your opinions about atheists might matter more.

See if your religion taught you intellectual bravery - because none do.

I did not assert that "only matter and energy are relevant to the structure of the universe", bubba.

Those are your words--your straw man--not mine.

Time--also geometry, algebra, numbers, words, language, etc--are ALL mental constructs. We humans invented them. None of them exists in the real world. The only "existence" they have is in the minds of humans.

Maybe that's why she can not directly and clearly condemn some of this stuff, it having been done to her. Maybe while they're being sliced and diced and thighed they're being told (in halting, low grunts) how 'pure & holy' it makes 'em. Serving Allah's will and all. Maybe they're told she'll get to re-materialize in Muslim heaven as part of a 72 pack 'o virgins. Wouldn't that be a hoot?!?

Well, you're here now, bubba. I don't know if it's a feature or a bug but Topix does this fairly frequently. Maybe it's a way to have people meet and make new friends! LOL, I dunno. I was wondering where all the 'shilling for shekels' crapola was coming from. You got some serious issues, bubba. Nobody has to get paid to knock Muslims. Y'all do that quite well all by yourselves!
Do the math, bubba. Half the Jewish population in Israel is atheist so this article is totally appropriate for the Israel forum.

They are distinct from religious mental constructs in that they have some utility in the real world. Unlike your gods.

I agree. Hard core Catholics can be very indoctrinated. I was reading an article by a Catholic priest, and he was clearly convinced that the CC had all the truth on everything. The level of arrogance can only be achieved by lifelong brainwashing.
You're either a Catholic or Hell-bound ... not unlike our Muslim amigos. I know some that attribute illnesses, mental or physical, to spirits. On the plus side, they don't condemn outright various activities as sinful as confession and performing your assigned retribution clears you ... at least temporarily.

So, are you conceding that your belief that time is something that really exists is just a delusion or are you going to keep insisting your delusion is reality?
