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.

I know there are Christians who don't believe everything in the buy-bull is literally true. I'm just wondering how anybody over, say, 8 CAN believe it's all literally true.

01. Life boiled down to a wildly improbable, but scientifically explainable, series of random events, leaving us alone to our own devices as the sum total of who we are and why we are here, because there is nothing more than that which can't be explained away.

02. People created and followed Gods for good reasons, they don't want to be alone in this. As for me, I have no personal Gods, spirits, higher powers, etc. but I do believe in the ones other folk bring with them, even if I don't agree with them. What better explanation for the world as it is than as the result of human faith and what our claimed higher powers have brought to that.
Ans.

01. I wish the realities were so simple as you have made them to be.

How life originated and how it take so many forms, how this universe started, how these laws were made?

There are many questions which are not answered.

When even a paper pin, or a needle cannot come just by random actions, how can this whole Universe and so many things can come up just by themselves.

You avoided all this and lumped it up by saying that all questions can be answered, you are only deluding yourself and no one else.

02. Your claim that humans created God is as absurd as your claim that this universe came by itself.

There has been no human society that did not have a concept of Creator, the picture got distorted with passage of time.

But the Personality and Attributes of God have been put by Quran as the purest that any one can do.

And these have not been changed or corrupted in past 1400 years.

People who have not studied Quran can say what you wrote. It is your ignorance of Truth, and you have to take blame.

Because Quran is not a hidden book, it is available everywhere and have been translated into most languages by Muslim scholars.

1.'God did it' and comparing the complexity, energy and vastness of time and space with a "paper pin" is intellectual cowardice at it's most extreme. You have us at a unfair advantage. Your 'explanation' of the Universe takes 3 words (God did it). Ours takes a reasonable knowledge of multiple scientific disciplines (astronomy, cosmology, geology, biology, chemistry) whose collected research fills libraries and any one of which takes a lifetime of study to fully understand. This isn't the time or the place to 'explain' the evolutionary pathways to planetary biodiversity to you. Get off your prayer rug and do some research!
2. Where else did he (God) come from? How dare you talk absurdities?!? Frightened savages worshiping the Sun, frightened MUQ worshiping Allah ... there's no difference. You're right though, ignorance and superstition have been features of all human societies. We're trying to change that ... one little pea-brained, godbot at a time. Wanna help? It would take great courage to stand up from the muck of Islamic Fundamentalism and say, proud and out loud "THIS IS NONSENSE, THIS HAS GOT TO STOP". It would, in fact, probably get you killed. Beheading must be a powerful incentive to accept pretty much whatever they tell you to accept. I understand. The least you can do is advocate moderation and be a man ... help protect women and children. It's one of the little advances we have managed to make that elevates us above mere barbarism.

Islam is but one "man invented" version of "religion". There are thousands of religions poluting this tiny planet! All of them have one aim!!!! The control of simple minds. "AS SIMPLE AS THAT".

Just try to create any thing without thinking, planning and design and see where it leads you.

You assume that if you give only time, every thing will just become right.

No it would get more disorganized and mis-arranged with time.

Unless there was a guiding "hand" which placed every thing at right place at right time.

And you see only the results and "assume" that "Hand" did not exist at all.

This is your problem and your sickness and I doubt if there will be any cure, unless of course you die and then your eyes are opened....because death is not the end....it is a beginning of another life!!

God is about to punish the world because people care more about money and the things of the world than they do about God, love, heaven, and the things of God. Go to a web site called, Direction For Our Times. There is a woman who lives in Ireland who wrote these little books called, Volumes. She is a very devout Catholic (Ohhh, bad word) and also a prophet. She gets no money for the sale of the Volumes. You can purchase them at that web site OR you can read them for free at that web site. Jesus and Mary have spoken to her and told her to put their words into those little books entitled, Volumes. Read Volume 5. It tells us that the Catholic church is going to be filled with corrupt men and the church will fail. It says that there are going to be horrible natural disasters, a world wide famine, and 3 days of which the world will be entombed in darkness. It also says that, once the world is cleansed of all the enemies of God (those who have turned away from Him and rejected His only Son, Jesus Christ) the church will come back stronger and more beautiful than it ever was in history. And the entire world will be Christian. Read it and weep :)

I thought he's supposed to pray to his god for strength.

I guess he realised just how futile that is.

The pope will have more time to contemplate such theological thoughts about strength as, "How did popeye burst open the tin *before* he'd consumed the spinach?"
