Why Atheism Will Replace Religion

Aug 27, 2012 Full story: News24 14,477

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. Full Story

I agree. I think of myself as the agnostic type. Which I think more is about saying that we cannot know if there is a God or not, cause you cannot prove or disprove something which is a) invisible, and b) silent.
Some days I can be more of a deist, and like to think that something may exist out there, and others hear something on the news or whatever, and think that there cannot possibly be a God.
What I am confident on after a lot of research is that the Abrahamic Christian God as described in the Bible is man cruel and made.
Food for thought: Even with the best seats on the planet and state of the art optics, less than 1% of the universe is visible to the human eye and far far less than that to the human ear. The other 99% is both " a) invisible, and b) silent " Do you really believe that means the existence of the universe cannot be proved or disproved?

Professor Flew taught Analytical Philosophy and Evidentialism at Oxford, both of which have been classified as sciences since Bertrand Russell's time and are required courses for anyone seeking a science degree.

Yeah. Whitehead's Theory of Actual Occasion, Jung's Theory of Synchronicity, Quantum Entanglement Theory, Gaia Theory....

Since 1996 .. it has been Science Against Evolution's objective to make the general public aware that the theory of evolution is not consistent with physical evidence and is no longer a respectable theory describing the origin and diversity of life ... When we talk about "evolution" .. we don't mean .. "any kind of change." .. Nor do we mean minor variations that result from natural selection ... We use the term "evolution" to mean ..“The doctrine that unguided natural forces caused chemicals to combine in such a way that life resulted .. and that all living things have descended from that common ancestral form of life.”........ http://www.ic r
Your source (liars for Jesus) openly admits it doesn't care about science and that evidence is irrelevant.

What's the "scientific theory" of IDC?

Communists were the "Real Atheists" that ruled the world and every one knows how cruel, barbaric and mass killers they were....of their own people usually.
Our Capitalist Atheists are only a bunch of loose thread types of fellows, who have no philosophy, no central thought and no idea of how an Atheist society should function.
They are united on a negative point, there is no god and there is no religion. Nothing positive in their places.
How can they create a civilization, with only Negaives? No one did that in the past.

Your god destroyed the world and is due to do the same thing again. Sorry bub, but there ain't getting around the fact that the entity described in the OT and NT is the biggest ahole in the entire multiverse.

Look back in history on all the powerful nations lead by self-confessed Atheists.

They all self destructed out of vanity and greed.

Nice use of that quote.
The only problem is that it doesn't really apply to this situation.
You aren't "catching" anyone in any sense of the word.

Even he doesn't know. He means the genetic code, however the code (A,C,G,T) is an arbitrary concept developed by humans to help us describe the chemical compounds of DNA, a fact recorded by over six decades of medical research. He claims there is another "code", apparently invented by an invisible magical Jewish wizard, used to create all life on Earth. This might even be true.
He just never bothers to give us the scientific evidence.

You call atheists "closed minded", but you're so open minded that your brain has fallen out.

We're all stupid on some level. I am the first to admit I am stupid when it comes to ornithology or archeology or art history.

But theists are stupid on such a a colossal scale that they totally misconcieve their understanding of the very universe they live in.

That's the mental illness - it is all consuming.

Us civilized people think forcing little girls to be child brides is a serious query. You do approve of the practice yes?

This is an Islamic teaching is it not? Muhammad married a 6 year old child did he not?

Yes he did and you know it. This is a factual Islamic teaching and you know it.

Why do you fear to answer questions about your Islamic beliefs? I thought that was what you wanted to do?

Help us understand why you think the practice of Muslim child brides is acceptable.

Atheist Angelina Jolie pledges $200,000 to The Malala Fund.

This money will go to save and educate young girls age 5-12, who are currently forced into domestic work rather than attending school.

“Today I’m going to announce the happiest moment of my life and that is the first grant of the Malala fund," said Yousafzai. "We are going to educate 40 girls, and I want all of you to support the Malala fund and let us turn 40 girls into 40 million girls."
