The Science Delusion : Atheists Beware!

"Religion is the opium of the people" -Karl Marx pp


The struggles between Religion and science has always been around since rational thought and free-thinking but those who disbelieve in a deity and use the powers of logic and reasoning are no different than blind followers. The modern human has always tied the word religion with god as religion itself is exclusive to a god or divine being. it is not always the case. The rise of atheism, where people do not believe in a god or deity is culturally accepted. Personally, I do. But to some human beings, the religious part is still stuck in to them, and whether it's god or no god, they still think the same. Some atheists today will talk about science in such a religious level. The boasting that science proves everything is the same as a fundamentalist christian saying the bible is everything. Two different upbringings, same style.

Once god-based religion is eliminated from human society which could take a matter of centuries or even millenniums, Atheism, or another form atheistic religion will take over. It will be another cultural battle between the secular atheists and religious atheists. The ones that don't believe in a god and accept that fact, and the ones that will worship the values of science and free-thinking. Scientists through-out history will be talked as if they were prophets. Most 21st century atheists would deny this fact since culturally, mainly atheists are a bit stubborn and up to their own fact which proves to me that the religious part is kicking into their belief system.

The point is not that who is right or wrong, the point is that the ones who despise the zealous believers are becoming who they intended on defeating in their first place. It is simply ironic how that even happens.

----------------

Now on a discussion level, Do you think atheism will become so huge that a large part of it will turn sort of religious or that people will lose the concept of religion over the years?

I think you're confusing rational thinking with religion, and then making your message seem all grave or something.

No. And my goodness. Whoever made that poster can't even spell "atheism". Pretty much sets the bar for your entire post.

I take credit for making that poster. Had to rush my MS paint skills. That's just a visual for what I am talking about..

Compared to my forum activity on other message boards, 4 threads isn't even a record to me.

Science is a method. Not a dogma.

There is only one dogma that atheists accept: Dragon's Dogma.

What I'd like to know is: how many so-called political activists on NS get high before posting? I've seen maybe a handful of threads that weren't simply an apocalyptic doom-and-gloom word salad.

Excuse me, but what makes you think I am under the influence of a drug while making this thread? There is no possible way I could write something like this while high.

Atheism is a religion like abstinence is a sexual position.

We should all emulate the cambodians and build sexual huts for teenagers to sexually experiment in.

Abstinence is indeed a sexual position, a position of where you are in your future sex life. Nowhere.

¿Qué carajo es esto?

Seriously?

*sigh* What the hell...I'll entertain this asinine thread's topic and answer: Religion will most likely never vanish. Atheism will certainly grow in size and worldwide significance, but it is dubious that all forms of spirituality will fade. I believe that current religions will still exist, but the will have lost much of their psychological, philosophical, cultural and political influence, and instead will be merely metaphorical sources of subjective moral values.

Atheism could never suffer a schism such as the one suffered by religions, since atheism only has ONE (1) core belief: there is no evidence of any deity and, thus, no reason to believe in one. That's it. There is no overarching moral code, no vague mythology that requires various interpretations, no structure to regulate its doctrine (or lack thereof).
In such conditions, there can be no schism.

Finally...Sector Union? Could you shove your thinly veiled ad hominems towards atheists up your ass? Please?
