The atheist Religion

11 July 2012, 13:57

I enjoy the odd bit of banter with the atheist zealots who troll MyNews24.  I love watching them squirm and run for the hills when they simply don’t have the answers.  Let’s see how well they wriggle today then...

Religion:  “a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects”, and/or, “the body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs and practices” - http://dictionary.reference.com

The atheist religiots do get a bit worked up when confronted with truth, but that’s okay, they’re only human after all.

So for atheism to be a true religion – which it is – it needs its own deity/deities, not so?  Fortunately for atheism, it has its own unholy trinity, which includes: Richard “I’m-still-in-the-closet” Dawkins, Stephen “I’m-rollin-they’re-hatin” Hawking and the godlessfather of them all, Charles “I-evolved-into-a-corpse” Darwin.

A place of self-worship and congregation is usually also required, they have that too; gathering in their little groups on MyNews24 and on Facebook, all befriending and poking one another, how sweet.  MyNews24 just happens to be the assembly point of choice at the moment where the atheists can expound their wealth of knowledge and unfathomable intellects on all us mere mortals.

The atheist religion also requires faith, and this is something that atheists have in abundance.  For anyone to make a claim, the onus rests on the claimant to prove their claim beyond question.  Since atheists claim that there is no God, and since they cannot prove this - even by their own admission – this assertion then cannot be ‘known’.  They are as a result, left with nothing but blind faith in order to support this belief.  In fact, their entire belief system is faith-based because very little of what they believe can be proved – much is still in ‘theory’ phase.

If God’s alleged non-existence is ‘known’, then please provide the necessary proof?  In the absence of any proof then, it’s taken on pure faith - mountains of faith, to be true.

So finally we can all agree then, the cult of atheism has all the required elements to be classified as a religion, the crazy part though, is that all atheists end up worshipping a bunch of dead gods who did nothing more than lie to them before eventually curdling and expiring like old milk.

The atheist religion equals deluded.  I pity them.

(PS – If I’m not around too often, it’s only because I’m hard at work trying to finish my first book - I’m just a bit undecided about the title.  It's currently a toss-up between:  The atheist Delusion, or, The Satanic cult of the atheist religion.  Hmm... choices, choices).
