Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: News24

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.

<quoted text>Hell is a black hole and they do exist. It is not the Christian conception of hell. You don't burn, you rot. It's also not physical torture, but it is mental terror. All sin is conceived of in the mind before being acted upon. Hell is solitary confinement, darkness, and freezing cold. There are three entrances to heaven and hell on earth: the Bermuda triangle, the Devils triangle, and the third is off the coast of Norway in the north atlantic. Each serves two continents. It's also not forever, eventually your spirit will be snuffed out (drowned) and you will cease to exist.
Thank you Susan!

Stupid lie, because god isn't real.
<quoted text>
Such and event is called a delusion of reference, and is the primary symptom of the mental illness of faith.
<quoted text>
There is no indirect or direct evidence for god. Part of the mental illness of faith, is convincing oneself that there is, despite no evidence and evidence to the contrary.
<quoted text>
Let me stop you there you flipping idiot. There IS physical evidence for Lincoln. There IS physical evidence that he existed and there IS physical evidence that he was a real person. Its all demonstratable.
On the other hand, understand there is NO physical evidence for god, NO physical evidence that is a possibility and NO evidence that god is real.
<quoted text>
There is a reasonable way, its through multiple correlating sources of evidence from different sources.
That is why Lincoln is taught as historical fact and not fiction or myth.
Why be dishonest? Why not just admit that Lincoln is a historical figure based on facts, while god is not?
Why can't you just admit that physical evidence exists for historical figures like Lincoln, while NO evidence exists for god or jesus for that matter?
If you make the distinction, it makes it so simple to understand the difference?
One has evidence for it and the other is a complete, fabricated lie with NO evidence for it and NO correlating evidence & evidence AGAINST it being possible.
Skeptic ... I wish I had your talent for getting right to the point!

Looking forward to it! Frankly, any change would be an improvement.

First, you try to present subjective evidence as objective.
Second, you try to present a proven fact (objective) as a subjective experience.
Lastly, you (a theist) try to tell me (an atheist) what my perspective is even though you have no idea yourself.
I lack belief in a god, I can point to thousands of years of absolutely no proof as evidence for my point of view. Still, it is my view, not yours. Please don't tell me what you think I think, it is ludicrous.
I am 99.99% sure that there is no god. Just roll his old bones down here to satisfy my intellectual curiosity and I will be the first to acknowledge my mistake.
BTW, I'm 99.99% sure that the sun will rise tomorrow. Not on "faith" or "belief" but on the objective facts I have seen every day of my life so far. Got it?
Probably not;0)
what is the purpose of your life then, why you born and die? just like that .... you better belive in the creator of heavens and earth before it's too late.

O mankind, remember the favor of God upon you. Is there any creator other than God who provides for you from the heaven and earth? There is no deity except Him, so how are you deluded?Quraan

It is they who are the heedless.Quraan

I used to find it amazing, considering most of them claim to follow a book called 'The Bible' which they obviously have never even read, now I just find it 'typical'

Yes, and when one takes a verse from their bible, then they either ignore it, claim we don't know what we're talking about or we never read the bible.....LOL These are some of the standard fundie responses.

LOL! Exactly! I usually see the "you're taking it out of context" gripe, even when the entire context is posted for them to see.

Another is "you are misinterpreting what the writers meant"... like they've got some mystical connection to the writers that even history can't name! Yet... "separation of church and state" can't possibly be interpreted from the words written in the constitution because the words separation of church and state" aren't there... even though we know exactly WHO the men were that wrote the words and what those words were intended to mean based on subsequent writings form those same men.

Apparently, if you claim to base your worldview on an anonymously written ancient text, your interpretation takes precedent over the actual words that are written.

Isn't it interesting that a god claiming to be the one true god over other gods uses threats in order to gain followers. The other question is who are these other gods, which none of us has heard or read their side of the story in the bible, that he has issues with? So there were other true gods in the beginning, but one of them claims to be truer than the others. What did this self proclaiming truer god do or not do to piss the other true gods off to get alienated and then create human pets to worship him because he was lonely?

There is only one true God, the other "gods" are idols. What separates the true from the false is life and death. The God of Israel will conquer death and come back to earth on the Mount of Olives within days after her death. Jesus is dead and he is Satans counterfeit messiah. Christians have a false hope that will never be realized. They're about as ignorant as they come and those who cling to him till the end will burst into flames.(Spontaneous combustion) Zechariah 14:12.

Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth."
- New American Standard Version (1995)

It wasn't just a lone being, entity, alien, etc....... named, "God" . There's the "Us" .

That is exactly what I said, it's all " Bullshit, pure bullshit. Just exactly like the other 30,000+ spin-off religions of the Abrahamic god-myth.".
