Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,385

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

If you re-phrase that sentence to read: "Then that creator can be nothing like any claims I'VE made about religion's claims!".....you will have finally posted something that's actually intelligent on this thread, bubba.

• Nothing can only create NOTHING. Before the universe began, something must have always existed.
• It's ENERGEY. Energy is ETERNAL. The 1st law of thermodynamics confirms that.
• That law states: "energy cannot be created or destroyed". No beginning or uncreated and no end. That's the definition of "eternal".
• You also can't claim that this energy always existed IN the known universe because science has proven that the universe didn't always exist.
• The universe never always existed (proof of this is how it is continually expanding). Science has proved that the universe (and time) were not always here, so it was created (see Stephen Hawking's lecture: http://www.hawking.org.uk/lectures/bot.html ).
• This energy source that was present BEFORE the universe began had to have power beyond anything we can begin to imagine.
• Considering it had to transfer it's energy into the TRILLIONS of stars and BILLIONS of galaxies.
• A separate ETERNAL energy source that exists OUTSIDE of the universe had to have supplied or transferred it's energy onto the universe (because we know the universe didn't always exist).
• So the universe has a creator; therefore, It's not unreasonable to assume this ENORMOUS energy was the creator GOD.
• Listen, we reasonably have two (2) options to determine what WAS this powerful always existing energy.
1. It could be a dumb, unconscious, and vague energy source (however, this seems extremely illogical considering that we can observe complexity, order, and design throughout the universe).
2. The most logical answer would be that an intelligent mind (or God) constructed the universe. It's as simple as that.
• If you can't agree with this logic then you are stubborn, unreasonable, and don't want to believe in the possible existence of a God.
• The mathematical probability of even a single cell forming by chance is statistically impossible.
• Just one spoonful of DNA contains more information than even the Grand Canyon could hold (where did all this information come from? who wrote this code? this blueprint for life?).
• Information science dictates that information always requires an intelligent source.
• Nobody has ever seen or been able to demonstrate an actual increase of information in the gnome (not even Richard Dawkins). They have never introduced information into the genetic code as evolution REQUIRES how audacious to think that because you figured out how to scramble the letters you can discount the one who wrote the alphabet.
• What about logic? Atheists claim it illogical and unreasonable to believe in someone you cannot touch, feel, or taste.
• In fact logic lends more proof to God's existence than eternity of matter. After all you cannot see logic, touch it, or taste it. It is immaterial, it is universal, and it is unchanging. Sounds a lot like God doesn't it?
• Could you really know anything if there was not absolute truth? If God didn't exist, you wouldn't know he didn't exist, the fact that you think he doesn't exist, proves that he does, because you can't think about something that doesn't exist, and you can't care about something you're not thinking about, If God didn't exist you wouldn’t know that.
I would like to know where you go to "observe complexity, order, and design throughout the universe". Pretty sure I see the same Universe that you do. I see explosions, implosions, collisions, impacts, things burning up, things frozen solid, things lit up and things darker than dark. I see stars and galaxies arrayed with all the order a blind man can achieve tossing hands full of sand into the air. I'll give you the 'complexity' part. All this stuff. The mind cries out for a 'simple' explanation. POOF!!! God is born. All hail his mighty name.

So you got this:
"Jesus said that whatever you believe, as expressed by the thoughts in your head and sealed by your spoken or written words, become the building blocks of your own personal mental construct of reality, and whatever that may be will materialize....for YOU."
Out of:
“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye
shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh
findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.”
I believe I see part of your problem. You should do a new Nostradamus prediction interpretation book ... you'd make a fortune.
I don't believe you really "see" anything except what you want to see, bubba.

You wouldn't want to actually research any of what I posted, would you? Even google can find it for you? You might get a few surprises if you did.

BTW: You can't actually see me.

the proven false god created in your bible cannot even get his own creation story correct...yeah the bible is full of proven lies and mistakes. no real god there, no divine inspiration in the writing of the bible at all..just the myths of humans...

Aw, you can't dispute it. Too bad, but then we all know you couldn't anyway. But keep on hanging out with us.

The first evidence of the existence of energy is the particle which triggered the Big Bang. It's called the "God particle".(hehehehehehehe hehehehehehehehe....)
If you want proof of YOUR Creator.....“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye
shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you....”
Jesus said that. Hindu holy men, Buddha, Moses, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lao Tzu, Muhammed, all the great religious leaders have said essentially the same thing for at least the last 8,000 years. YOU have to do the asking, seeking, and knocking. Nobody else can do it for you, bubba. And, if YOU aren't willing to ask, seek, and knock, you will remain as blind, deaf, and ignorant as you are today for the rest of your useless, pathetic life....
So, just BELIEVE until you really BELIEVE for no good reason. That's not proof, that's delusion.

Atheist means not theist.

People are respected, for what they do, or what they may acheive, seldom do they earn respect for what they do not have. Is your theism that which garners you the respect ofyour fellow man, or have you actually done anything to earn that respect?
