    Those who do not believe in God often have no morals because they do not believe in a higher power. They base their morals on their human nature which is faulty. So why is there spread of blasphemy? Christians, Jews and Muslims all believe in God and that is the common thing behind all of us. If we don't believe in God we will be in sin forever. Think of the corrupt evils of atheism, like Hitler and Mao and Stalin. What are your thoughts?

    If the belief in God is going away, how do we teach other people about love? God is love too.

    Atheist exist today only because of corrupted theists, there's no other source of their origin.

    A believer can do all sorts of crimes in the name of god for his personal motives or out of ignorance, etc...but those who affected/suffered by his actions will surely blame god for their source of pain; and out of logical reasoning comes the question ''If god exist, why am I suffering? or Why all this suffering exists?'' thus an atheist is born.

    So, if a believer has to eradicate Atheism, first he should be a true believer...not by his words, but from his actions as well. From his good actions he brings hope to others and from hope comes belief.

    I do not agree that all atheists are evil! just like I don't agree that all believers are good.
    Cruelty exist on both sides.
    But I do believe that a TRUE believer can do more good than a good natured Atheist.
    Whereas a cruel Atheist and Theist are equally dangerous, each in their own ways.

    Why say something so stupid? You know loads of people on this site are going to say negative things about religion, especially when you say things like this. This is going to be like every argument about religion here. Atheists calling people who are religious stupid, and people who believe in God calling atheists stupid. There will be some well thought out posts, but that will small compared to amount of posts bashing either side.

    This is the headline to the link you posted..

    Egypt: Are there really three million atheists?

    The article states;

    Up to three million Egyptians are atheists claims a Cairo-based newspaper, as reports highlight the difficulties in openly choosing to follow no religion in Egypt.

    Your Headline:
    Atheism is spreading

    Your opening post begins:

    Those who do not believe in God often have no morals because they do not believe in a higher power. They base their morals on their human nature which is faulty.

    My opinion:
    *Your post is an attack.

    *The article presents a perspective on discovery.. Not growth.

    *Christianity is also growing.

    *Denouncing atheism as evil..is evil.

    *The Hitler/Mao/Stalin reference is weak... There has been more slaughtering in the name of God ..More death and destruction than these three combined.

    *Acknowledging that there is a God does not constitute a "True Believer".

    Note;
    I am Gay, I am Christian , I am a realist.<- (inorite.)

    "Human nature is faulty"

    It's human nature not to kill, it's human nature to help others in need, it's human nature to socialize and converse, learn and adapt...

    "Human nature is faulty"

    I love science, but science is not God... Man is not God... Even if you don't believe in God and are extremely logical there are things we can't explain. Such as, twins knowing when the other has given birth or passed on. I believe it's important for a human to have a reverence, respect, and humility towards a higher positive being.

    Look at how many God threads there are. Look at how many "what is the meaning of life" threads there are.

    "Those who do not believe in God often have no morals because they do not believe in a higher power."
    Example: Mao, Stalin, Hitler etc I said "often". I didn't say "always".

    "They base their morals on their human nature which is faulty."
    Humans are known to kill, commit rape and do other illegal acts. They do hard drugs etc. Is that not faulty? At least Christians and other people from religious faiths know they are sinners. Aren't we sinners?

    "If we don't believe in God we will be in sin forever."
    Sins are things that goes against God. God is the ideal perfection. From the definition we are not perfect, so we can look to God because He is a role model.

    Being a gay Christian is possible because God, if you believe, loves everyone.

    There is nothing wrong with belief in God.

    But that is all it is. "Belief" without proof that something is there.

    lol, what a troll you are OP.

    You told two lies. The 1st is that atheists must automatically be bad people, and the second is christians must automatically be good people.

    It appears, as well as being a troll, that you are also rather stupid.

    signed,

    -Doug (Christian)

    It's organized religion that's the problem. If you believe in God that is fine. Just don't mix Religion with Science. Don't confuse Intelligent Design with it being a scientific principle. It isn't.

    Don't throw us all under the bus with the OP.
    The OP cites an article from a Cairo newspaper that refers to an unnamed survey purporting 3 mill out of 84 mill Egyptians choose no religion. Might as well have cited a grocery list to support that atheism is growing.

    BTW OP.. Hitler did believe in God.

    There is video footage and hundreds of transcripts that proved the Nazis were searching for the Holy Grail.

    Just to fill you in.

    You should read the last book of the New Testament, Revelations. We might be at the beginning of the end and the Anti-Christ is coming.

    It is human nature that invented all of these fairy tale supreme beings and other flawed thinking centuries ago. However as we have evolved and progressed, we now realize that there really isn't some powerful old man in the sky watching down on us and passing final judgment on all of us.

    You are wrong, wrong, wrong.
    You appear to know nothing about aheism.

    Atheism is simply the disbelief in organized religions and all their dogma.

    I think that there are two reasons why atheism is spreading.

    1) People are rejecting the hypocrisy of religion: priests fucking children, condemning gays, amassing great wealth instead of giving aid to the poor, etc.
    2) People are choosing to do their own thinking and to take responsibility for their own actions.

    Who would even dare to suggest that atheists are immoral because they dont get their moral views from a book written by savages thousands of years ago. Anyone who resorts to religious writing as their only source for their morality is a delusional crazy fanatic with poor judgement along with a complete lack of common sense, AND is in no position to question anybody's morals but their own.
