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

I'm 100% sure I know what your "point" is. You are going to claim we can't be sure there isn't a god if we don't know everything. But, I disagree.(By "god" in this context, I'm talking about the god of the buy-bull, or any god who is all-powerful, all-knowing, and answers our prayers. If "god" can mean anything, there is nothing to debate.) Well, it's quite clear god doesn't answer our prayers, so god doesn't exist. I don't need to know everything to know that.

No question is pointless only answers are pointless.
Ok lets say you have 1% of all the data, information and knowledge in the universe, now what are the possible odds that in the other 99% of all the data, information and knowledge in the universe God exists.
No one can say that they know 100% that God does not exist until you have all the data, information and knowledge in the universe. The opposite is not true I can know something with 100% assurance with out knowing all the data, information and knowledge in the universe.
Just a thought that shoots down all claims that anyone know there is no God. thanks for playing, not many have the guts.
By "god", do you mean Allah? Or Thor? Venus? Vishnu?

Ok I will play your little game, go on then prove that YHVH does not exist.
Let's start with the "Facts" your Bible Claims;
1. God is omnipotent
2. God is omniscient
3. God is omnipresent
4. God has a message for all people.

That's what your bible claims right?

OK, so why couldn't your God write down this message himself or otherwise leave a message where all can find it?
There are only a few possibilities to consider;

1. He didn't know how.=> He's not God.
2. He wasn't powerful enough.=> He's not God.
3. He did but someone hid it.=> God doesn't know where it is, could not have known it would be hidden => He's not God.
4. He did but someone destroyed it.=> God didn't know that would happen and could not prevent it => He's not God.
5. He did but man is too limited to understand the message => God didn't make his creatures so they would understand his message AND he didn't write his message so his creatures could understand it => He's not God.
6. God doesn't really have a message for all humans => The bible is completely wrong and does not describe God properly i.e. The God described in the bible does not exist.

There, ONCE AGAIN!! Solid Proof the God described in the Bible does not exist.

You are a member of what I call The Negligible Percenter Sect of religion. No ... nobody can say for certain that god exists. No one can say for certain that he does. They cancel out ... perfectly. Means nothing. But ... of course ... that's really all ya got.
Those who know God exists, know, those who don't, don't. easy as that. You on the other hand belong to the negligible percent of humanity who are blind to the truth

Perhaps if you applied Biblical principles your prayers would be answered.

The only true Living God in existence is YHVH God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob, God of Israel. Now go and get a real life.

All of creation is evidence that YHVH God of Israel exists. If you chose not to see it then it is you who will be accountable for your own choose no one else, just little old you.

All of creation is evidence that Vishnu exists according to the Bhagavad Gita which is a much older document than your scriptures and therefore more "authoritative" since it was written closer to the actual beginning of the world.

In short, you have been misinformed.

Is that it, is that you so called proof that YHVH God of Israel does not exist. Is that truly all you have well what you have is a total lack of understanding of YHVH the God of Israel.

Let me fill you in.

YHVH God of Israel, chose to give the message,,the one you want to Israel, written by Moses it is called the Torah. Israel His chosen priestly nation has this information. On the surface they seem to have failed because Ha Satan has tried so very hard to corrupt both Israel and the Torah. However YHVH's message did survive all the attempts to corrupt it and to prove this we are debating it right now some 4000 years later. This message the Torah, has gone out to all people it is the first 5 books in the Bible today. Man has the capacity to understand it, you see I do but you don't, that proves that man can understand it. If you choose to ignore the Torah or be ignorant of both the Torah and it's owner then that is you issue no one elses.

There you have it you so called proof shot down in a huge ball of flames, would you like to try again with something else or will you concede defeat right now.

Oh dear you poor misled fool, no even the followers of Hinduism agree on the date, some say 3000BCE some and some 500BCE. Iether way none out date the Torah.

The Torah was written some 4000 years back with evidence to back that up.
