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.

We haven't "missed it" yet ... not by a long shot. Given the enormity of the task though, a certain amount of despair seems appropriate.

I find in the nuclear Age and the final end of man religions are superfluous. Our survival chances as man are Zero. We are on its way of extinction.
If we only stay on the Earth, we are indeed doomed. The "nuclear Age" is as likely to give us propulsion systems that might ultimately save us as it is to destroy us. Let's not be too harsh on the old Nuclear Age. I think we've managed to eek our way through most of the Mutual Assured Destruction scenarios.

The brief descriptions of "Spinoza's God" I have read simply equate "God" to Nature. Nature devoid of any of our popular anthropomorphism's that invest God with what are clearly reflections of our own notions. I really don't believe the Universe wants "to learn about itself". That's what drives us ... the Universe as a system of physical laws lacks even that capacity. "Spinoza's God" just seems an attempt to revere Nature as we would a more conventional reverential 'construct'. Now, if Spinoza was really saying the Universe has it's own motives and goals then that's a Horse of a Different Color. It would be, in fact, the same old song & dance.
On the other hand, we are clearly 'matter organized to such an extent that it wants to understand itself' and perhaps unique or, at least, very rare in the Universe. That does, I believe, place a burden of responsibility upon us, while also investing us with that 'specialness' godbots seem to yearn for. We have some obligation to preserve and utilize our intelligence and make efforts to spread it around. But, ultimately, in a Universe destined for some kind of 'heat death' or 'big crunch', even these goals are entirely of our own ambition, not part of some 'grand scheme' by the disorganized matter that surrounds us.
We are tiny parts of something very big. Scary. Something inside us seems to murmur that if we do the right thing or say the right thing or worship something the right way we can enhance our position. Nope. Nothing knows or care what we do or say. We just have to learn to deal with it. Those who have learned, more or less, to 'deal with it' call themselves Atheists, for lack of a better name.
RE: ".... the universe wanting to learn or having it's own motives ..." .... prove it does or prove it doesn't ..... I'll wait ....

I've often stated that mankind will create it's own successor, either by accident or on purpose. Even if not by our own action .... Evolution does seem to march on .... in the long run, you are correct, mankind is doomed .... but then, so what?

Do you mean EVERYONE who is born dies? What is THAT for humanity being doomed?

Still no word from you as to why your religion abuses, rapes and murder little girls and why you support such barbarity.

Your quote is very hypocritical, especially when thinking of your attitudes towards atheists, gays, child marriage, and so on.

Belief in supernatural is not good for next life but this life. Beliefs are just that and not the truth as religions portray. Why is this MUQ is minded to deliberately misconstrue a post which correctly warns us to wake up as we are heading for a doom! As per MUQ all is well since what matters is "belief" in his book (which told us of creation lies like other religions) and a better afterlife! If there is a better afterlife then those who lie and let us proceed as specis to the doom by far sooner than the billion years time that our Sun stops supplying the required conditions on the planet.

OH!MUQ! Real GOD will not be content!

That's right I have been asking him the same question for weeks with no response.

He is a loathsome little creep who thinks who thinks the:-
1. Abuse, female genital mutilation
2. Rape, child brides.
3. Murder, stoning to death.

of little girls as perfectly OK because it is done in the name of a merciful god.

Hope you're patient ... we've already been waiting 13.8 billion years. How much more "proof" do you need?
