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.

About the Author
Chris Trueman BA (Hons), MA set up www.historylearningsite.co.uk in 2000 as he felt there was no easily accessible and comprehensive website on World History on the web. The site has grown in popularity and is now viewed by hundreds of thousands of people each month from around the world.

Chris has written all the content for the site from his in-depth knowledge of History having taught History and Politics at a major secondary school in England for the last 26 years. Chris graduated with a BA (Honours) in History from Aberystwyth University, Wales in 1979 and has since studied at Loughborough University and gained a MA in management from Brighton University in 2000.

As well as History, Chris teaches British and American Politics at advanced level and both subjects are covered in depth on his site. Current plans for the site include a major section on British History in the Twentieth Century, an in-depth study on Stuart England targeted at those studying at Advanced level and work on the Falklands War to commemorate the 25th anniversary of this conflict.

Chris has made every effort to be as unbiased and objective as possible in presenting the facts and interpreting events. If you feel that a particular area needs attention do not hesitate to send in any information or opinion that you may have. Chris will consider it for inclusion on the site.

1. Philosophy is the "science of why" and has churned out Theists and Atheists and everything in between trying to answer it. The question remains. It is "important" because it has diverted our efforts from more productive pursuits.

2. God does not do much of anything. The purpose of all life is to pass DNA on to future generations. If God were real he'd tell you that.

3. Why I was here was adequately answered for me when I held my first born child. I knew at that moment that I had fulfilled my duty as a Human Being and living organism. All questions of "why" fell away for me. I suppose that if it is some kind of personal immortality you seek, that's just not good enough. I stand in awe of Nature and understanding it is one of my favorite hobbys.
Ans.

01. You are right philosophy is the "science of why" and there are two types of philosophies, one which is aided by the Creator of Universe and another in which people use their own brains and try to figure out their own conclusions.

1A. The Philosophy which is aided by God Almighty is the absolute truth and this is what prophets and messengers of God preach to all people in the world in all ages. This tells them to worship only one God the Creator of Universe and do good deeds and prepare for the last day.

1B. The second path which is based on humans own thinking, is filled with mistakes and errors and no two philosophers agree with each other. They are just like blind people searching in darkness about the path. If they get one bit right, they get 100 bit wrong and no one can tell which is right bit and which is wrong.

02. Again you are wrong about God having NOTHING to do with it. It is the same thing as you knowing very little and boasting that you know all of it. How come DNA got created?

03. If you think you have done your duty as a human "to get your child born".then what is difference between you and an animal?

Why the powers of thinking and reasoning and choice given to you and not to animals?

Why you behave like animals when your Creator made you above all these animals?

Why not be reasonable and accept that there is a higher purpose of human life on this earth.

If you enjoy nature and it does not bring your mind to who created all these wonderful things, then you do not really enjoy nature, every thing in nature would be laughing at your stupidity!!

One who walk naked on streets, are THEY civilized?

Those who attack small countries with pack of 25-30 nations, are they civilized?

1. It is all from our own brains, some are clouded, some are clear. No one gets "aided by the Creator of Universe".

1A. A real god would not need prophets or messengers. That's the truth.

1B. I was just joking about calling philosophy a science. It isn't. People's feelings, hunches, hallucinations, delusions, opinions, dreams and tall tales have everything to do with religion and nothing to do with science.

2. " http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2013/02/... ;

3. Nothing. We evolved intelligence the same way the other animals evolved their various survival tricks. We behave like animals because we are animals. We're not "above" anything. Please tell me what you think that "higher purpose" might be. We may well be relatively rare intelligent beings in a vast cosmos. A good "higher purpose" might be to fully understand our place in the Big Picture and try to make sure we're around for a while.

I hear a lot more crying than I do laughing. Maybe you are wrong about a great many other things as well.

You got a lot of nerve. One criteria we judge civilizations upon is the quality of their mercy. How's yours? Tolerant much? I doubt it. What does your version of "civilization" do to sodomites and lesbians MUQ? I've been to strip clubs in Damascus and flown around the Middle East in planes full of Ukrainian whores, selling themselves at every stop to you holier-than-thou Arabs. Don't try to come off cleaner than anybody else MUQ, because I know better. When 25-30 other nations decide to topple your government, maybe there's something wrong with it. Like it or not, MUQ, we all living in a "Global Village" now ... we all one big happy "civilization". Maybe you didn't get the memo.

Let me see if I have got this right:-
1. Anal sex is uncivilised.
2. Girl on girl is uncivilised.
3. Strippers are uncivilised.
4. Saving an invaded country is uncivilised.

But:-
1. Stoning young girls to death is civilised.
2. Female genital mutilation is civilised.
3. Thighing is civilised.
4. Flying planes into buildings is civilised.
5. Suicide bombers are civilised.

You are sick.

How would anyone know who are lezzos and buttpunchers?
Is it because they take it into the street?
Because they try to muh dik everyone?
And yet in the west these 'lifestyles' are protected and advanced by governments and basically compulsory.
So who is the 'intolerant'?

Actually, you were right in "are," and the second part of the sentence was half wrong.
Everyone CAN do wrong, it doesn't mean they do. There have been quite a few more religiously related killings than non-religiously related ones.

<quoted text>The end result is still the same. Violence is still violence. Atheists lack of belief can also be a compelling motivation. Stalin had no issue with mass murder.

Religion can, and has, motivate people to help their fellow man, to clothe the naked, feed the hungry, house the homeless, educate children and adults, care for widows and orphans, etc.

[QUOTE]
Religion = superstition and the results of superstition in any society have never been good. "

Religion can, and has evolved. It can also incorporate science, law, medicine, and other areas of intellectual pursuit into its belief systems.
What about Hitler?
He did all in the name of religion.
