Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,477

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. Full Story

Well, you do believe pedophilia is right, otherwise, you would have denounced it in the many chances you had.

Wrong.
Duration is the period of existence between a cause and effect.
In other words, the *time* between those events.
Time, on the other hand, is the mental construct humans invented to MEASURE the duration, i.e. period of existence, between cause and effect.
The objects of measurements are not mental constructs. We don't say that distance is a mental construct because we measure distance with yard sticks. We don't say that charge is a mental construct because we measure it via its effects. Similarly, time is what we are measuring when we measure duration. The duration is a time interval.

Correct.

The OBJECTS of measurements are not mental constructs.

Itís the MEASUREMENTS of those objects which are mental constructs.

And duration is time (actually proper time).

Aren't you tired of flogging that dead horse yet? Time is what time is. All you've demonstrated is that you can't verbalize it any better than anybody else. You must have just recently came upon the phrase "mental construct". Yeah, everything we blah, blah, blah is a 'mental construct'... whoop-dee-frig-n-doo. People who try to attach cosmic significance to the fact that we all like to set around and contemplate our belly button lint make me want to puke. The great clockwork mechanism of the Universe will continue to unwind, quite unconcerned, when our component atoms are all splattered out there, re-condensing into some new star system. For some reason, godbots just can't handle the truth. You people just can't stand the thought that you and your belly button lint are so resoundingly and completely irrelevant in the 'Big Picture'.

I hate to break it to you, but until you reach this realization, you ain't even SCRATCHED THE SURFACE of attaining any kind of Cosmic Consciousness. Cuz Bubba ... that's what Cosmic Consciousness is. What you got a really bad case of is Cosmic Self-Delusion.

That's circular reasoning and it's a logical fallacy.

Again, duration is the period of existence between a CAUSE and EFFECT. Time, on the other hand, is the mental construct humans invented to MEASURE the duration, i.e. period of existence, between cause and effect.

How Atheism which cannot even be defined will replace religion? Can a fish market type of gathering and arguments replace the high level of religious beliefs?

I think Atheism will also die its natural death as Communism, Nazism, Faschism and so many isms did before that.
Religions might "merge" and a True Universal religion might emerge....
