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.

I watched over my atheist farther during the last 3 years of his life and during that time span he became somewhat religious. So all I can say from witnessing this change is that when suffering and death are near you will cry out to god. Maybe not all of us but I believe most of us will. And yes he found comfort in that. Just wanted to pass this on to others. Best wishes to all.
Christopher Hitchens was dying and he never called out to God.

Ans.
If every one in USA have heeded to your father's advice, probably there would not have been any 9/11 or Afghanistan War or Iraq war.
That shows how Skeptic US people are, I can understand they are on steroid though!!
There was no vaccum of religious nonsense, vaccum was created when you removed that and inserted nothing in its place.
For past so many months I am asking all your great scholars to explain what is Atheism and you are even unable to provide it.
If you think that Atheists only believe in "Palpable Facts", then please explain the Creation of this vast Universe present in front of us.
Which "palpable fact" would deny a Powerful force behind it?
You are partially correct! If Godbots heeded my father's advice, there would not have been a 9/11. Without 9/11 there would have been no Afghanistan war. If there had been no invasion of Kuwait by your buddy, Sadam, there would have been no Iraq war. No 9/11 and we wouldn't have had to 'finish' the war Sadam started.

Science more than makes up for the 'vacuum' created by expelling religion.

When "great scholars" can't explain something to you, the problem is not with the scholars.

Wow. Explain the Universe in a Topix post. That's quite an assignment. How about ... God pulled the Universe out of his hat! Wait. That sounds like a religious explanation. Magic even.

Only Godbots have the unmitigated audacity to claim complete knowledge, summed up in one word ... Godidit. Have fun with that.

There is no single 'fact', palpable or otherwise, that can deny magic. People examined magic and found it lacking ... thus scientific inquiry was born.

What could he say?
That he was a marxist, a poof and hypocrite?
I dont think that God would do him any favours.
But I am glad that the SSNP gave him a good beating, those guys did good.

I am really beginning to think that Richard is pedophile because all he talks about is abuse and rape little girls. He is fantasizing about others doing it. Maybe somebody should repost him, he has the same mannerisms as Bob.

You obviously do drink quite a bit, or had. Those dead brain cells didn't just get there by themselves.

The proof?
You lack comprehension in the simplest of things.

You and your barriers.
Break them once in a while, come out and experience reality.

I said nothing of our education.
I said you lack comprehension in the simplest of things.
For example, that GivemeLiberty was talking about people who say religion hurts no one, and did not mention his wife, nor her thoughts on the matter.

You have a marriage barrier.

You are blind my young Jedi. What Givethemliberty has said in the past can be categorized as alarming. But I see you pick and choose what fits your agenda. I understand that you do not have the slightest comprehension of Educational Barrier. Unfortunately you should have learned that in school. I mean you do have 10 PhD's correct?
