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>Yeah, that is what I asked you.

You are insane, take your imaginary belief system and shove it, we all know that it is just because you feel stupid for having such a damned fool belief, and you want to share the stupid. Sorry, but it's all yours. You can keep it.

You have no proof, but you have faith? Are you saying that the buybull is not proof of a god? Guess what? We already know that. LOL!
Buybull is that a book on atheism?

Atheist sure have a hard time keeping your believes straight.
Yet alone just the definition of the word atheist.

Merriam - Webster

athe·ist\ˈā-thē-ist\
noun
: one who believes that there is no deity

"who believes". That's a positive assertion. Seeing as there is no proof of your belief It's FAITH.

Faith:
"Synonyms: devotion, piety, religion"

Ah yes Atheism is a Religion.

Have a nice day and don't forget to go to church.

Church, without God

“Stan Bradley likes Bible stories, admires Martin Luther and uses expressions such as 'heavens, no.'

The Lithopolis man is president of a local congregation and rarely misses a Sunday service. Occasionally, he goes to his wife's church instead.

For these and other reasons, Bradley considers himself religious.”

He is also an atheist.

continued:

“Like Bradley, some atheists participate in organized religion for its social and psychological benefits.”

continued:

“Churches are great places to find friends, support and youth education, so nonbelievers and believers alike join congregations to fill those needs, he said.

He has spoken to elderly and sick people who can no longer go to church and they say they most miss the feeling of community.

Recent research from Harvard University and the University of Wisconsin backs him up. It found that religious people tend to be happier than nonreligious people, not because of belief but because of the friendships found at church.”

“religious people tend to be happier than nonreligious people”[I have said this all along, and my posts are still on the board to confirm it. Now you hear it straight from the atheist, lol.]

You can play all the word games you want, but atheism isn't a religion. What do you get out of lying and claiming it is one?

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".

George got it dead right!

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 :)
