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.

GOD or mystery behind matter, non-matter, physical laws. life and its urge to continue via transfer of genes, etc cannot be explained by astronomy only. Religions are all human constructs of recent few millenia at the most.

Now you are being a racist. Admittedly, Jews wanderings will change them as some admixture always occurs and the weather may induce some mutations. Did you not hear of Nigerian parents in London had a white baby and the DNA proved that the bay's father was her dad- a black Nigerian!
Okay, how would you call white muslim Syrians that I have met and you can see them on TV these days?
Genetic tests indicates that 90% of todays Jews, i.e. the Ashkenazi, never had any ancestors who "wandered" around the Middle East, therefore Ashkenazi Jews can not possibly be the blood descendants of Abraham nor do they have any ancestral ties to any country in the ME, including Palestine.

Atheism is just another man-made religion which is based on FAITH in a set of beliefs. You atheists have absolutely enormous faith that your mental constructs of reality actually represent objective reality despite all evidence to the contrary.

Here's a big bite of reality for ya, bubba. The science of genetics does NOT have us all pegged genetically right back to your mythical "Primordial Ooze". The genetic trail for all modern humans ends with “the 7 Daughters of Eve” circa 50,000 BC. Why don't you take a big bite of REALITY and become part of the solution (knowledge) rather than a part of the problem (ignorance)?
Okay ... maybe not "pegged" but every living thing on the planet has one thing in common ... DNA. Surely by the time our ancestral life-form crawled up onto land our basic layout was well established. Bilateral symmetry, rudimentary lungs, appendages, brain case, gut, etc. It's ridiculous to ignore or deny our relationship to these animals. You're the one swimming in dee Nile.

Besides being irrelevant to RHill’s question, comparing Ramanujan to Euler is like comparing apples to oranges, bubba.
Euler had an excellent formal education in mathematics and was mentored by one the most brilliant mathematicians in Europe. Ramanujan had NO education in mathematics or anything else, formal or otherwise, and no access to any books about mathematics or anything else. He clearly stated his mathematical knowledge came from dreams/visions which he credited to a Hindu goddess named Namagiri.
RHill wrote:
<quoted text>
He asked for an example of higher consciousness, I gave him the example of Ramanujan who clearly obtained his knowledge of mathematics from “something that exists outside the human mind.”
If you have some other explanation for how a "godbot" like Ramanujan obtained his knowledge, let's hear it.
We are all capable, to one degree or another of grasping mathematics, solving problems, using logic, learning a musical instrument, composing a poem or writing a Sonnet, etc. Some are more adept than others. Most 'prodigies' will tell you that they still have to study. They are not 'created' with some special knowledge, but rather, an extraordinary ability to think or focus or something. Nothing magical about it.

Wrong.

Prions do NOT have DNA but can transmit inherited traits.

There was much weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth when the theory of evolution fell onto its own DNA petard but....hey. That's the way the cookie crumbles, bubba.

Religion: The belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, esp. a personal God or gods.

Atheism: The lack of a belief in a deity or deities.

How can Atheism be a "religion" when the two definitions do not match.

Never been to Israel. But I don't care what you think. If you cared about liars, thieves and murderers you'd condemn the killings of Muslim by Muslims and the injustice in the Islamic world.

After Morsi, Christians and churches targeted by Islamists
About a hundred Christian families flee the Sinai after the murder of a Coptic priest and the beheading of a Christian businessman. Gunmen riddle churches with bullets. Christian stores are marked for possible attacks, whilst demonstrations target Patriarch Tawadros, "guilty" of supporting Morsi's ouster. Christians are likely to be scapegoated by Islamist groups and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Regardless I noticed you were afraid to comment on Muslim violence as is usual for your bigoted ass.

Here's a hint. Perhaps when Muslims stop attacking innocent people and slaughtering children the Middle East can live in peace again.

100 % of their wealth goes to "charity" when they die!!

Not a single Riyal goes with them to the grave!!

What about those Billionaires in your country, that do not give to the charity? You hang them?

We have facts backed up by evidence.
You have hearsay and not a single piece of evidence.

Why do you think creationism has such a minority following?
The reason is that it has no evidence to support it at all.
