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>The fact that you called me a christian shows your ignorance. As much as you like to displace your idiocy onto others does not make you correct.
The bible presents 3 ways to take care of the poor and needy: 1) through the family; 2) through the church; and 3) through individual charity. The applicable passages for these three ways are Deuteronomy 14:28, 29, Numbers 18:24, Matthew 6:1-4 and 1 Timothy 5:3-16.
Forget religions at all! Your life with science is really what you need!

Christ's teachings were about our personal obligations to help the needy. Nowhere does Christ suggest that brute force should be used to take wealth from one group and give it those deemed more deserving.
That being said, the difference between charity and socialism is force.

No, all of cosmology has to be wrong, most of biology, most of physics, all of geology. The universe is about 13.7 billion years old and the earth is about 4.5 billion years old. Those numbers do not depend on evolution, which is a theory about how biological species change over time.
Well, I find the answer for these questions is in my opinion not answerable in such a short space.

The Bible can be used to praise or condemn practically any human activity, thought, belief, or practice. As with the works of Shakespeare, if one looks carefully, one can find a quotation, incident, or story to support or undermine anything.

This practice has been used by many theists to justify their own prejudices (by proving that "God thinks this way, too"), as a justification for grabbing and holding power ("It's not what I want, it's what God wants!"), or as the perfect excuse for not taking a fearless look at themselves and making necessary, although admittedly uncomfortable, personal changes in attitude and behavior.

The misuse of the Bible by petty, fearful, manipulative, or misguided individuals who deceptively quote from the Bible not as an illumination of truth, but as a justification of their own limited point of view.

The Bible is an anthology of ancient literature that contains sublime wisdom along with barbaric histories and the war songs of tribes on the rampage.

All this is taken as the literal Word and counsel of God, as it is by fundamentalist sects, which know nothing of the history of the Bible, of how it was edited and put together.

So we have with us the social menace of a huge population of intellectually and morally irresponsible people.

RIP Jerry

You can attempt to spin it any way you like but the catholic church, which is after all the oldest christian church, all others are apostates will tell you in no uncertain terms where you are bound if you do not keep the lawdds commandments.
Other little christian cults like The Western Branch of American Reform Presbylutheranism may feel they have the answer but then all the answers are incorrect.
You do not go to `gods abode` if you neglect the poor.
We have conveniently shifted from the notion that jesus was a marxist egalitarian to whether there is a hell. This is quite common among christian republicans who cant reconcile the concept of christian charity with their political leanings calling for less social welfare and smaller government.
What was Joseph told by god to do when he was warned of the famine approaching Egypt? RAISE TAXES!

Yah, the spaghetty monster is not impossible, but there is no reality for it. So forget it! The Easter bunny is not impossible, still forget it, there is no reality. Just forget all myths!

That statement should be modified ;)

Gods are nonexistent.

Remember, there are more than just one God on our planet.
Gods tend to reside very close to where their followers are born or raised.

Neither do these Gods communicate with one another, thus each culture must adapt to its own local God.

Maybe you should look into how greek mythology influenced the NT. None of that "hell" stuff is in the OT. Apparently something got mixed up in translation. Try talking to a Jew about hell. blah blah blah... Jesus (according to the bible) promoted chatiy not socialism.
Whatever the bible says is not believeable!

Joseph was not told a single word by a nonexistant god.

That's self contradictory. Because if your statement were true, it would be 100% right, and then there would be something 100% right, your statement, and that would make your statement false.

A few days before the Catholic church's earthly and religious power were on global display, the Obama administration signalled its own very different idea of the proper relationship between church and state.

It did so by giving a senior job to a high-powered lawyer who takes a sophisticated liberal view, in American terms, of the terms on which government and faiths should interact.

Melissa Rogers is the new director of the White House Office of Faith-based and Neighbourhood Partnerships; in an earlier life she was the general counsel for the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty.

In other words, she is a Baptist separationist, taking her cue from a particular interpretation of Thomas Jefferson's letter to the Baptists of Danbury in 1802, calling for a "wall of separation" between religion and government.

American debates on church and state can be confusing to follow (even for Americans) because conservatives and liberals alike say they are rooting for religious freedom; and all sides pay homage to the two axioms enshrined in the first amendmentó
that there should be no impediment to the free exercise of religion,

and no move to establish any religion.

Nothing about "it's possible things exist" is related to "the bible is not 100% right."

Where does it say that or anything even close to it. POST BOOK, CHAPTER AND VERSE.
Oh, read your damned buybull.

I post that answer at least once a week if not more, and I know that I have posted it for you, and more than once. If it keeps getting repeatedly posted, we just might win over some more Christains and convince them to become atheist. And if we have to show them what their own buybull says they really aren't smart enough to join us. I mean they don't even know, or care to know the thing they claim to worship.

Case in point: How do you feel about a god who would make you eat your children?
