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.

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.
I bring it up if I happened to read a post by some ignorant atheist misquoting the parable or ranting about all the alleged errors in the texts.

The actual parable says it's easier for a rope to go through the eye of a needle than a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven of God.

The other parable about straining gnats out of a cup but swallowing camels contains no mistranslations or copying errors....

So Bose, being a 'give credit where it's due' type of fellow acknowledges the contributions of this Hindu fella in his 1920 paper? I'd really like to see that!
No, it was Paul Dirac who was the give credit where it's due' type of fellow who named the particles after Bose.

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.
Your right.

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.

poor attempt at atheism

The "sensory input data" that tells you time is real but God isn't? LOL

At any given instant, my senses tell me nothing about either one. They do 'enlighten' me as to the nature of my surrounding environment. Time speaks for itself, God requires a Human mouthpiece.

Whether a camel or a rope, the point (at least in this case) remains. You are quibbling over insignificant details to flaunt the depth of your knowledge in these mythologies. Too bad all that study was for naught. You might have actually done Humanity some good had you applied yourself with equal dedication to something useful ... like being a Train Engineer or a Circus Barker.

We have nothing to prove. You, on the other hand, claim something HUGE, MAGNIFICENT, OMNIPOTENT, OMNIPRESENT, OMNISCIENT, WORTHY OF WORSHIP, AWE, REVERENCE ... and you can't produce. All you got are some ancient books, anecdotes and little voices whispering in your head. The "Atheist Philosophy" is proven every morning, when you wake up and the same old wicked world is still stumbling along. The only end in sight is our over-burdened world choking to death on the effluents from our 'go forth and multiply' population you godbots can't seem to control. Your god and your religion have "COLOSSAL FAIL" stamped in bright red letters on your foreheads but y'all keep scratching and biting at the very people trying to save you. Makes me sad.

"Never", "ALWAYS" ... you're using some really big NO-NO words. I would not be so bold. Surely, most Humans seek 'enlightenment' at some time or another. I presume you define 'enlightenment' as grasping some kind of mystical mumbo-jumbo and awakening to the true meaning behind belly-button lint.

We suffer the name 'religion' only in our hope to be equally protected under the law. We make no claims. You got to go back to Logic 101 ... we can't "prove" anything because we don't claim anything. We're just trying to help you 'bots learn the error of your ways.

How about the 20 or so chemical elements we have created that do not exist in Nature? How about works of art, architecture, music, poetry & prose that exist in no other time or place in the entire Universe?

But, here ... no reason to bother replying ... "Mere transformations", you will say. Oh well, I tried.

I'm still waiting for your god to manifest itself in some clear fashion. His billions of avid supporters here on Earth can't seem to get him to make an appearance. You must be going about it in the wrong way. Maybe he's waiting till you all quit believing in ghosts.
