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.

No *scientific* articles proving a God exists. Lots of blogs, but nothing scientific.

Still no *scientific* articles, I see. You made a claim that science has proved God exists. Let's see the scientific papers.

You're appealing to magic? They had special magic genes? That's convincing.
"It is known that all life was not created in a single six-day event."

This is a lie. You know nothing of the sort.

Magic? That would be rain falling on rocks and sprouting life that mutated and one day became human. Now that's magic. Your magic expects people to except billions of impossible steps to get to humans.

Believing in God is one step not billions.

So far that's not been the case.

Yes, we do. The fossil record shows us the record of life on Earth. It directly refutes Genesis.

What steps are impossible? We know organisms evolve.

We can dismiss the creation myth in the book of Genesis, because it is full of absurdities.
There is evidence for the Big Bang. There is evidence for evolution.
It doesn't mean he didn't do it.

Nothing to deny and never hurt. It just isn't real, it's a shame too. My church family were nice people....at least they strived to be good and had a common goal.

It's also a shame that they thought they had to go through the flimflam of religion to attain those goals.

I know that God works miracles because I am one. This "retarded at best" child was actually born with above average intelligence. God has blessed me with the love of a good man and two beautiful baby girls. I have an education and a family who loves me. Do I have money in the bank? Not much. Yet I still give what I have to charity every chance I get. I am grateful. I am grateful for a chance to live and love and enjoy life. So do I believe in a God who is greater than myself? Absofuckinglutely!
You're really coming out of your erm....shell there. No longer bashful at all....you had me fooled for a while at any rate.

I'm sure you are grateful, it sounds like you've been through a lot. You can be grateful to your parents, doctors, nurses, etc. and rightly so.

Giving the credit to an invisible, nonentity is (JIMHO) a waste of time. Kiss your husband and hug your daughters, happiness is a right we all share.

I can dismiss the story of creation in the buy-bull as being the answer, because it's clearly absurd.

What happened to you, if you don't mind my asking? I can relate to church hurt. Religion disgusts me with its dogma and hypocrisy. I've had preachers try to turn me against my family in an attempt to get me to marry their sons. My husband and I were even held down at the alter at a Pentecostal church one time and we weren't let up until we spoke in tongues. Believe me when I say we did not go back. I've studied religion my whole life. It fascinates me. I even dabbled in Wicca back in high school. I haven't come to believe the way I do simply because I don't know anything else. I've been out there. I've always been very vocal about my lack of faith in religion and dogma. I haven't turned my back on God, though, just because some of his people are Aholes (trying to watch my fiery Irish temper and my colorful vocabulary per the gentleman's request from earlier) But, just like you, I've known the warmth and love from a sincere church family. I guess what I'm curious about is how did you go from that to this?

<quoted text>
Read what again? The Bible? I have read it over and over and I will continue to read it, each time learning something new. Zombie Jesus? lol Was Lazarus a zombie too? Lady, do you even know what a zombie is? A zombie was originally a snake deity that derived from west Africa and Haiti. A zombie is a soulless corpse derived by WITCHCRAFT (side note: Do atheists believe in witchcraft?) Jesus never used witchcraft. In fact, he condemned it as sin because of the presence of evil using it brings into our lives. Prayer is powerful. Never doubt that. The Bible says the prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Exactly what promise did Jesus not keep? If getting somewhere in life doesn't come from this "buybull god" as you so eloquently put it, where does it come from?
No, I do not believe in witchcraft either, it is a silly waste of time.

One promise the Jesus of the Bible made was that faith the size of a mustard seed can move mountains (from here to there, I'm not talking about a volcano or earthquake which has a verifiable cause). I have yet to see a mountain go from one place to another, ergo a false promise, an unkept promise and/or outright lie.

Where is it you want to go in life? Some want money and power, some want love, others want peace and contentment, others prefer solitude etc. Any of those can be attained all by themselves without assistance from supernatural entities.

I don't have a lot of money either....but I don't owe money for anything but utilities, insurance, taxes, etc. I have a fantastic marriage that has lasted for decades, three grown healthy young men, two beautiful granddaughters with another on they way.

I help the mentally ill, I'm paid for it, but I'll never get rich from this line of work. I continue because I enjoy it.

I don't require the promise of heaven to be happy and I don't need the threat of hell to keep from running amok.

Let's just say we're both happy where we are:

As for prayer....I don't believe in it.

So you saw the dino poo steaming?

Steaming poo is fresh it takes awhile for mushrooms to grow. No they do not grow in steaming piles of poo.
