Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,507

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. Read more

Why don't you use the same thing when you see this huge Universe around you?
Could it create itself? Could it come by chance? Is there no purpose behind it?
Just to negate every question is like a dumb, mute and blind man, who is not aware of what is going on around him.
All of you grown up people are behaving just like that man. I am amazed at your stubbornness.
In order to assume that the universe was created by a great wizard, we would have to have a precedent. We know about cars because we have record when the car was created. Furthermore, you claim that the universe cannot create itself while claiming that your all powerful god does not need a creator. That argument defeats itself.

Why there should be a "precedent" for Creation and how do you "Know" there was not a Precedent?
While living inside Universe, how can you know about things Outside this Universe?
So it is your objection which defeats itself.
It is strange that you people having so much worldly knowledge cannot understand these simple logic and reason.
PS:
So now every atheist is a world in themselves, there is no central theme, there is no philosophy. Every one is free to "chip-in" which their own views.
No one has any authority over any one else.
I do not know if these atheists would be able to make any type of society or civilization by themselves.
The "only" point on which all Atheists are "unanimous" is that there is no God and there is no religion.
And as I told this is a Negative point on which they agree. Unless you have a "Positive ground" on which all Atheists agree, you cannot create a movement, a force , a change and build your society.
Look what Communists did in their countries, when they disbanded religion without providing any alternative? They all descended into violence, oppression, injustice, and in-tolerance.
That is the ONLY example in my view when a society was created totally neglecting God and religion.
Religious liar with no proof of god. Atheists converted: 0.

01. If people after knowing and some one showing them the true and reasonable and logical path, continue to make the "foolish choice". Then they are real foolish.
Some one making foolish choice because of ignorance and lack of info and knowledge has some excuse. But not the once who "choose to reject the true path".
There is no "true path" and you just described religion. Religion is for frightened infantile minds who prefer absurdities to uncertainties.

So if everyone with a shape, form and regularity has to have a creator. Who mades snowflakes? Salt Crystals? Have you ever seen them forming? Who was there besides yourself?

I do not "claim" God exists....everyone Knows God exists, it is unreasonable and illogical people like a few of you who make this unreasonable and illogical claim that "God does not exist".
So the burden of proof is on you and not me.
At the Most I can give proof that there is Only One Creator in this Universe and I have already given proofs for that.
You people are not smart, just stubborn
You have given no verifiable evidence that any God exists.

"Society" is a survival advantage, many animals besides man has formed societies, no creator is required.

Intelligent design has nothing to do with your self-contradiction. You proposed universal responses to basic principles as being random.

Figure out what you are saying before you try to correct me. You don't have near the intellect for the latter task.

Oh really? Then maybe you can explain to us exactly how scientists can form a test to verify something that existed prior to the big bang?

The ethic of reciprocity shows up in many ancient writings even some animals show a grasp of it. Your religion has no "claim" on "inventing" it either.

If Natural Laws can make snowflakes and salt crystals, then they can make the world, the universe and every thing in it as well. No Creator is required.

There is no evidence the universe required a creator, in fact most of the verifiable evidence supports the notion there was no creator.
