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

What's this "us" stuff?
The "bread" and "water" of life is for children of God and you ain't related to "us", bubba.
Get it?
"Us", as in we who have, do and will read the buybull.

But, I understand your problem, you have an exclusive god club, and membership must be guarded and limited to those who are Jewish, Muslim, Christains, Satanists, Vodun and Pagans. Jewsus is a whole nother story, nobody but the Jews can claim him. So barricade the doors, and you may manage to trap some decrepit oldster or two when the rush to bail, comes.

Not at all. The word "us" refers to all enlightened folks who KNOW that the omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent spirit in every particle of everything in the universe is the ONE, aka Lord of Creation, Allah, God, the Supreme Being, Brahman, the Cosmic Consciousness, the Unconditioned Element, etc, etc, etc, folks from every religion and no religion--they are the children of God.

And FYI--Jesus aka Yeshua Ben Yosef was NOT a Jew, bubba.

Yes. That "connection, of sorts" is exactly the one I was talking about. And I guess this Nath fellow made his proposal when? 10000 years ago or something? LOL

Okay. I've no reason to doubt there are COUNTLESS translation and interpretation errors. The 'Word of God' has more holes in it than a warehouse full of Swiss cheese.
Actually, surprisingly, during the last 200 years of thousands of scholars and linguists studying these ancient texts and publishing their findings, the consensus is there are very few copying errors and most are insignificant....except to ignorant atheists.

I used to set in church and think:

Yet, you found the rope/camel error significant enough to bring it up and you clearly do not consider yourself an 'ignorant atheist'. Why 200 years? Surely you don't think the book was pristine up to that time.

Yep, true, for some capitulation, they sink into the waves, never to be seen again, and others .... comes that light bulb moment when they realize it's all a pack of lies. And they can't understand how they ever beleived any of it.

14. Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.

15. Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.

16. For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken of both her kings.

You forget how weird these guys are ... you are probably getting 'enlightened' in some aspects simply opening your eyes and looking around. We are constantly receiving, processing and storing away sensory input data ... a form of 'enlightenment' in the Land of the Lotus Eaters. Don't presuppose that 'enlightenment' is necessarily something startling or revolutionary. Humankind has learned to lower their expectations.
