Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

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>That is a valid answer, you implied Catholicism isn't Christianity, which is a sentiment some fundamentalist Protestants possess. Thus I asked if you were referring to Protestantism.
Nope, it wasn't an answer for it wasn't related to what I said in the slightest.
Hitler was a Christian, and so bringing up Protestants has nothing to do with him.

Hmmmmm....well you did state who u hate. However that is a ambiguous statement, and it could be used against you as well. Anyone who advocates, perhaps lobbies might be more appropriate, for a particular cause, is also attempting to "push their beliefs" on others.
Lobbying for a cause is only pushing their beliefs on others if it affects those others. For example; a secular nation is not pushing their beliefs on others because everyone can believe whatever they want to, a Christian doesn't have to smoke weed, and so having it legal in Washington does not infringe on anyone's beliefs.
Marriage equality is not pushing a belief on another, for those against it do not have to marry a member of the same sex, nor do they have to believe it's right, they can have their beliefs.

On the other hand, denying these things is forcing others to comply with your personal beliefs, ignoring theirs. As well as ignoring the line in the constitution where it states everyone has freedom of religion.

It's really quite exciting. "Creation" is an on-going process that we can see and photograph. The reality matches quite well with theory and that (THAT!!) is how you determine what is real and what is make-believe.
The Theory of Evolution did not come about by magic or wishful thinking. Evolution is self evident upon a careful observation of life on Earth. The "theory" persists because there is NOTHING that better explains what we see all around us. Certainly better than your gods, demons, angels and prophets ... keep guessing. If you really want to know how things came about, the information is out there and accessible ... at least in "civilized" societies. And yes ... there's "scientific proofs" of all this, despite what your Ayatollahs tell you. I can't give you "scientific proofs" over Topix any more than you can conjure up a miracle.
Judging civilizations by their mercy and/or justice. Hmmmmm ... let me see ... I'm thinking ... I'm pretty sure ... YEP!!! USA wins by a landslide!!! I mean, you got to be kidding me right? You keep Islamic mercy and justice, I'll take my chances over here. There's not 25 or 30 "superpowers" Bucko, but 25 or 30 "civilized" countries sounds about right. I wish you people and Israel would just go ahead and have it out. You know, a good, Old Fashioned War with planes and tanks and armies clashing on the battlefield. Then you'd have a winner and a loser, we could all finally see who has the best god (LOL) and get back to our soap operas and documentaries.
well said. I just hope it doesn't take the 'Armageddon' these people keep hoping for.

As a Christian and a gay man, I must say the God I worship isn't planning anymore "acts of God" punishments to a society that practices the message of His Son.

Compassion to everyone. Forgiveness to all.

BTW I don't even think a person NEEDS to be a "Christian" or any other faith to understand the 'Christianity' I practice.

01. Who changes the condition that instead of "pure chance" the conditions become "favorable"? Newton, Einstein or Darwin or Hubble?

02. Stars might be common as "sand" in this Universe, did you try to "create" a grain of Sand out of "gas"….try and then comment.

03. Looking for scapegoat, and now this "evolution: is a catch word. Blame every good and bad deeds on evolution!!

04. Yes my "leaders" allowed me to complete my University degree and then my Engineering degree too!!

If NASA does not send me to GITMO, I can also have a peek to look thru Hubble telescope and sing praises to my Lord for creating all those wonderful things out there.

You people are really ungrateful brats that even after looking such beauties…you say "tuch, tuch, that galaxy does not look OK at that place…will some one move it 1000 Million light years to the left"

05. Theory of Evolution has become a "tool with Atheists" to beat the religious people with it.

Earlier they were at loss how to explain so many life forms on this earth.

They got rid of all that by "inventing" this Blind Theory of Evolution.

Why should they burn their oil on it. Let Evolution explain every thing by itself.

What one needs is "imagination" and some "Creative artists" to shape and clothe what we excavate from earth.

06. Who "else" can be superpower but "civilized nations"….compared to Iraq and Afghanistan all these 25 and 30 "civilized nations" are superpowers.

07. I wish to the world that they leave "Arabs and Isreal" to settle their scores once for all.

There should be no ceasefire, no UNO sanctions and no deadlines. Let them fight it out?

Would you convey this idea to White House or should I?

Gravity is a scientific theory, it is the theory of gravity. The same goes for evolution, it is a scientific theory. They both have proof to their existence.
If you think evolution is a lie, then you think facts are lies.

Faith is:
-Complete trust or confidence in someone or something.
-Strong belief in God or in the doctrines of a religion, based on spiritual apprehension rather than proof.

See; "rather than proof."

Thanks. Secular Humanism has similar goals without involving a god or worship. There's no future in any religion ... somebody is always gonna come back and make us all pay for our numerous transgressions.

1. No one. In a reality that may well include limitless "multiverses" all variations and permutations of natural laws happen spontaneously somewhere. We just happen to live in one suitable for life. Imagine that.

2. I believe we create various crystals using something called "vapor deposition" ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemical_vapor_d... ) it's really not that hard. I lack the necessary apparatus.

3. Evolution is a term that describes the modification of species over time to suit changing environments. It's only a "catch word" to people programmed to believe a perfect god created everything 'as is' not very long ago. Silly, huh?

4. Well done! Hubble reveals a Universe that is many billions of years older than your religion allows. Your god created these illusions to confound us? Not very sporting.

5. Oh ... just leave it alone.

6. True enough. Best to behave and not call attention to yourself when surrounded by so many frightful bullies. Hey ... I know ... quit blowing up innocent people!!! The rest of the world would blissfully ignore you again.

7. Haven't y'all already tried that? I think we all know how it would turn out. You couldn't win. Thus the terror game. Pester the giants with thousands of tiny pin-pricks, then cry when they swat you.

As a pervert you obviously know nothing of the God you claim to know and worship. As a pervert you will fall under the condemnation of the Christ who HATES all perverts as He said in his word. He will only show forgiveness to those who are in His word, you as a pervert are not.

Your "Christianity' will only get you one place and that is the lake of fire alongside your real god SATAN>

1) The odds are billions to one that there would be a planet that is able to support life, no one would contend such odds.
2) Vapour deposition is not creation it is introduction of chemicals into an externally controlled environment. Now try to get one of your so called evolutionary scientists to create anything out of nothing or if you want out of the air without the controlled environment needed in a lab.
3) What is silly would be believing that life spontainiously erupted out of a puddle. Getting a suntan is change due to environment is that your evolution.
4) The data recovered from the Hubble does not show anything of any age it is only data which needs interpreting and is aged by brain washed mindless evolutionists, what data shows a made by date?
5) Don’t like the truth, why not just leave evolution alone, why do you lot have to preach it to everyone, as one of the religion of evolution priests once said “we need to teach the theory of evolution as fact in schools to children as young as possible” as Hitler once said “let me control the schools and the text books and I will control the nations”. Now add 2 + 2 and you get the anti God bias of evolution, evolutionists and the teaching of evolution.
