Atheism to Defeat Religion by 2038

Apr 25, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Psychology Today

My blog posts on religion have attracted a lot of controversy. Religious people are annoyed by my claim that belief in God will go the way of horse transportation, and for much the same reason, specifically an improved standard of living.

I think the oppression of women is as much due to culture and tradition as it is due to religion.(Religion certainly doesn't help!:-)

Muslims treat women with what they perceive as 'respect'. They would do better to see them as equals. That is a generalisation. Of course, the most important determinant is personal character - one's nature, nurture. Some Islamists treat women better than some western atheists or secularists. Better a well-adjusted, honest and hard-working Muslim than a lay-about, ignorant atheist.

Our behaviour and charachter is determined by a mixture of nature and nurture. Religion is just superstition.

In democracy if some one wins by one vote, then he is declared elected and the loosing candidate gets nothing.

In this world people who believe in God are in overwhelming majority, but it is the minority who is making all the noise.

And these people live and die by democracy!!

Is it not absurd?

In a republic (America), the minority are protected from the tyrany of the majority.
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the REPUBLIC for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Hitler had a majority in an election and then vast majority of his countrymen supported him. Democracy does not necessarily deliver right government. However, it is the best way to a possible transfer of power. Belief is just that and most belief matters are based on either the total/part ignorance of the masses or the masses acceptance of the religious dogma without questioning it. OH! MUQ you will be judged "one day" and punished for knowingly sold lies!

Because how correct something is, is not a matter of how many people think its correct, but how inherently correct it is.

Trust someone from Saudi Arabia to talk of democracy without reference to freedom of the media, freedom of speech and expression, equal rights, secularism, or protection of minority rights and interests.

There is more to democracy than voting, Muq.(Note the small 'd' in democracy. Nothing to do with 'Western Democracy').

You're educated and bright enough to understand all that, Muq. May I suggest that you put far, far more thought into your posts.
(You and I are boring enough when we are thoughtful!:-)

MUQ knows that Islamic ideology is anti democratic and does not even conform to the 1948 UN Declaration of Human Rights!

I do not see the Muslim Minority in USA being protected against the Majority.... There are SOME MINORITIES that are more protected. So this is not a general rule.

There is no liberty and justice for ALL, but for select few.

But is the Western Democracy that Western Nations are too eager to force on Muslim nations in the world.

The REAL DEMOCRACY is what Islam gives to its followers.

PS:

You seem to forget that I am a national of India and I know more about Democracy than anyone else in the Western World.

And as an Indian, I can see all that is wrong in Western Democracy being practiced in India.

Obviously you don't. You don't know what a democratic republic is.

You have no idea what real democracy is. Islam like other religions gives nothing but false hope, and ignores right and wrong.

Could it be that you’re practicing it wrong.
You know more about democracy than anyone?
But you refuse to recognize fundamental rights.
