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.

When is your fear of being wrong ever going to end, allowing you to stop requesting for proof? Are you unwilling to admit your faith in atheism is inadequate and very weak?
I really do pity your loss.
When you can honestly prove your god, your precious ego will no longer be offended by facts stated by atheists.

Its a pity that you cannot stand by your claims and prove any of what you believe. Before proving what you believe, you expect all atheists to drop what they are doing and start praying to a creature that lives in your mind alone.

Thats what's so disgusting about faith based mental illnesses - they can't prove anything and shout at others when this is pointed out.

You seem to be an ignorant atheist as well since you agreed with a moron.
Its because you're a coward that you cannot admit that you have no proof of god, make no mistake.

Atheism exists, because religious people lied.

To say atheism is a faith, is dishonest - it is your cult that makes the faithful, not atheism.

Atheism is a simple disbelief in the proofless claims your cult makes about society.

I trust that as the world's population becomes more educated, they will also become more rational. Atheism is necessarily irrational.

And since the Vodun(Voodoo), the Satanist and the Pagans, are theist (indoctrinated) just like you, you have so many more votes against those few of us, who are un-indoctrinated. Aren't you proud to be in such company?

Maybe you should concentrate on the non believers, and leave the un indoctrinated alone. That group the un indoctrinated, are the real atheist, and it includes every newborn, infant, and most of the toddlers, the world over.

Atheist = not theist. The "A" means not.

That is one of the plusses of education. People may become more rational, and less easily bamboozled. Imagine falling for a god who could be beaten by the simple iron chariot, or a god who would make you eat your own children, or even one who would punish a man by having his wife raped in the street. There is nothing like a bit of education to get people dumping the filthy bible god, and the quicker the better.

You'll understand this once you are burning with flames wrapped around you for eternity. And yes, I know you already know this but your stupidity keeps you retaliating against the truth.
Please, feel free to continue to persecute me. The Bible predicted it.
Not only the buybull, but the Quran too.

Your Abrahamic god is not really letting any one into heaven. First of all, as Allah he is barring anyone who is not Islamic, and as Yahweh he is barring anyone who is not Jewish, and as Jehovah, he is barring anyone who has a bastard in their family (along with the entire family line) for a complete nine generations past the bastard's conception. BTW: That means not even Jewsus gets in, he is a bastard.

Actually, most of those you make mention of are not atheists. Although theists are those that are sure there is a God, the "a" in "atheist" does not mean "not" as in "is NOT sure there is a God". Those people are agnostics. Rather, the "a" in atheism means "opposite". That is, a theist is sure there is a God. An atheist is sure there is no God. And that is irrational. If you are interested in why, I will be happy to explain it in a further post.

I might be an ignorant Bible scholar, but could you elaborate on your examples. You seem to imply that the Bible describes God being beaten by an iron chariot, that God forces people to eat their own children, and that God punishes men by having their wives raped in the street. Perhaps there is some portion of the Bible that I missed, but I don't remember those sections.

Cowardly creationists try to attack Dawkins, because they've realised that they can't attack Atheism.

Atheism is a simple disbelief in religious bullsh*t.

You don't need any more posts to know or understand this fact any better.

You can't remember those sections because you suffer from the mental illness of faith.

It causes other difficulties for you like, not being able to prove your god, not being able to understand atheism, denial of evolution, denial of fundamental science, denial of womens rights, and often predjudice against gays.

Its a known mental illness and we see its victims here everyday.

The best help is seeing your doctor who can help you overcome your delusions of reference.

Atheists are not here to serve your mental illness or its delusions.

When you can prove the god that your faith based mental illness creates, instead of lying about it, we are open to talking.

At last! An insightful statement. Thank you for that. This is kind of 'Persecution for Whimps' though, don't you think? No lions here, no Gulags ... not sure you're really earning any 'holy-points' for mucking about with the Atheist Heathens. The Cat-licks do this thing called 'self-flagelation' which might leave a mark if you get really good at it ... just a helpful hint!

Are Theists more or less 'rational' than Atheists? Be honest. Spare me the canned 'why certainty is irrational' explanation. Is it a sword that cuts both ways or not? Is Agnosticism the only rational philosophical principle? I hope not. You've got to look at the available data, you've got to make up your mind and you've got to take a stand. Clinging to uncertainty because the data set will always be incomplete ... that is the way to madness. That means it's 'okay' to believe whatever you want to believe because it's no more or less 'okay' than anything else. That is simply not the case. There are concepts and world-views far more supported by the data than others. It is not a level playing field and what we are talking about here is no more and no less than the real 'root of all evil' in this world. Uncertainty, waffling, being swayed by this or that clever salesman. Grow up people.

How could he? He is a bastard. Don't you read the buybull? Do you know what a bastard is? It's a conception or birth of a child from a couple who are not married, or haven't been married long enough, or is not the actual issue of the male member of the married duo. It's all about the timing of conception and cheating the priest/witch doctor/spell casters out of their fee's to hitch the couple in holy matrimony.

How could he? He is a bastard. It's not my words, nor my book. Don't you read the buybull? Your god's rules for getting into heaven, includes the "no bastards, no way, no how" rule.

Do you know what a bastard is? It's a conception or birth of a child from a couple who are not married, or haven't been married long enough, or is not the actual issue of the male member of the married duo. It's all about the timing of conception, women not cheating on the man, and not cheating the priest/witch doctor/spell casters out of their fee's to hitch the couple in holy matrimony.

Oh, it is not necessary that you explain further. In fact my first reaction (to your post) was >>> "Well, well, well space cadet is going to educate me. Ha, ha!"

Wow, I am amazed at the waste that public schools in this country allow. Some words that were not ever needed are "up", or maybe it would be "down", but as long as we had aup, what else would we need?.

So Homskuled, is aleft, acold, abig, aheavy, aempty, what you mean? Yeah, that makes sense, huh? What do we do with a left, make it aleft?

You seem to not have paid enough attention to the details of what you read.
