Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,477

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

No there is where you go wrong. If Creator has an "another Creator", then He is no Creator at all.
That is where every creation stops. Creator is the ONLY Non Created in this Whole Cosmos.
But for Him, every other thing is created. Every thing else had a beginning and shall have an end.
Only He was before Creation and only He shall remain after every thing ends.
How come you people got into this "hole" that Creator also should have a Creator?
Have no thinking power?
If your Creator "always was" then whatever he is made of, also "always was". Energy comprises everything in the universe and has never been created nor destroyed. If the basic substance of everything (energy) has never been created nor destroyed, then no creator was ever required.

Also, your argument breaks down with your "always was" argument because the initial posit is anything complex and wonderful had to have a creator. The creator is "complex and wonderful" therefore he also had to have a creator or your initial argument is bull crap from the get go.

If the creator doesn't believe it has a creator, the creator is atheist.

Actually, it is!! Einstein proved that all matter is energy .... ergo energy is substance as well as everything else in the universe.

Energy is not substance.

It also was created - according to the cosmology of the Big Bang Theory.

Incorrect!! There is no claim that the Big Bang "created" energy. It might well have been one of the "form changing" events that energy does so frequently, like changing from light energy to heat energy to kinetic energy and so on.

All substance is comprised of energy E=mc^2 ergo m=E/c^2 Matter is merely another form of energy. Ergo ... Energy is substance and substance is energy, they are interchangeable.

This is how I figure it. There have always bin religionists + theres always bin atheists. Back be4 Christ there were those who just went along with the multiple gods stuff + those that actually believed. My guess is there will be this right up to the end.
None of it matters anyway, ur either written in the "book of life" or ur not, doesnt matter if ur atheists or what. God judges ur soul and writes ur name from the start. Ur held to account at Judgement, again no difference. The only thing is to believe u have a soul, to not let it die, or theres no eternal life. Religion, atheism, just dont harden ur heart.
Cheers for scrolling. Goodbye.

According to your buy bull mythology, God is responsible for hardening hearts, not the individual. The individual can not be responsible for a "hardened heart", your God is in charge of that.

If he exists that is. He probably doesn't.

"He who hardens his heart is cut off" Somebody who hardens his heart is eventually cut of from God. Hell is the absence of God.

Gregorian chants and religibable will do you no good.

According to your buy bull mythology, God is responsible for hardening hearts, not the individual. This is evident from the passages where he hardened Phoaroh's heart.
