They're not atheists.
Those are the findings of the study conducted by Pew research and they are Very Reputable.
As the article stated, Atheists seem to be in a state of mental confusion.
25% attend religious services each week.
Like I have said before ,Atheists continuously debate an issue , the topic of which they do not believe exists. Why is that?
I believe their subconscious is trying to lead them in the right direction. I think that some Atheists are begining to get the message... That would explain it.

Quite simply. If you believe in the existence of a god then you're not an atheist.

one last thought for u. i'm not a past christian. in your foolishness you worship the begotten above the Uncreated Creator.
knowledge is power with more science(knowledge) comes more suffering(struggling). you know the tree(man) by its fruit(labor)
hercules born of a woman and a god.
take up "your" cross and follow me. the winds of change are coming.
Then I suppose that my comment at the very beginning wasn't aimed at you, but at past Christians that have abandoned their faith, which is evident that "if every christian would read the bible then they would they not be converted from idolatry." is simply a supposition with no backing evidence.

As for foolishness, I'm positive critical reasoning skills and common discernment will always aim in holding a belief in something that is evident to be true or backed by evidence that can support an idea, the Bible contains none of those qualities, only vague platitudes and a reflecting God to fill whatever aperture of their own egotistical tendencies that they use to try to give merit their condescending nature; I've never heard any adamant believer claim that they were going to hell, but I've sure heard that comment thrown at me and others alike. Also, that Oxymoron lacks any significant meaning towards your argument, or the existence of a creator.

I'm not here to debate about your false pretenses that are purposely obscured and only backed by misleading and poorly executed attempts at subtly trying to back its own point with its own ill-gotten messages. You're only kicking your crosses down at this point, buddy.

Quite simply , I merely posted the findings of the Pew research project.
How it is that those who claim to be Atheists also beleive in God
is difficult to understand . The article I posted alludes to Atheists being confused.
I think that this condition is caused by the fact that many Atheists , such as are found on this forum , spend a large part of their time continuously debating the existence of God,whom they do not believe exists.
I ask myself ,Why is that?
Makes no sense,unless , it is your subconscience making an effort to point out to you that your mind has deceived you into not believing in God.
Duquette denies this , but , this condition afflicting Atheists where they claim to be Atheists while believing in God , may well be caused by the struggle between their minds telling them one thing and their conscience's effort to lead them in the right direction.

I believe Atheists,whose moral code is self inflicted are illequipped
to judge anyone's morality.
They can lower the bar as low as they want and can make the claim,as has been done here, that they've never done anything for which they need feel ashamed.
Or , as Duquette claimed , 85% of contracts are meaningless , neither your word or your signature mean anything.
Others can,based on their moral code,judge their parents to be delusional,throwing the commandment " Honor your father and Mother"
out the window.
I gave my reasons for justifying the events that occured in the OT based on God's instructions to the Jews.
Based on that , you claim that I support the killing of homosexuals , am in favor of slavery , genocide and the rest of your nonsense, as if I approved of the abovementioned under the circumstances of today... And you know better,you are lying.
but let me take that a step further ,you claimed I have adegenerate morality.
You would apply that statement to anyone who believes as I do.
So , those Catholics , Mormons and Southern baptists who believe as I do , also have a degeneerate morality , based on your immoral beliefs.
Then , I can conclude that those who have Catholic , Mormon or Southern baptist parents , the same can be said of their parents.
Maybe the same can be said of your parents.
Of course , those who have judged their parents as delusional ,may not agree with your views ,or they can claim that their parents disagree with the instructions given by God to the Israelis. let us see if any dare to disagree with your unscrupulous,lying and immoral conclusions

Perhaps you need to research your dictionary. Oddly enough there are more definitions of god other than the one you refer too.

They could just as easily be confused Christians who are uncertain in their faith.

I have to agree with lodi. The term "god" means different things to different people.
"God" as a field of energy which comprises everything is not the same as "god" being Yahweh.
As you say, a confused Christian will only see "god" as the Judeo-Christian Yahweh, but a person who is trying to broaden their concept of a "god" might concieve it as something like "the Force" from Star Wars.
A survey is only as good as the quality of the questions asked.

Let me ask you a question. If people argued the existence of unicorns and monsters under beds, and it was at the forefront of the media along with being a belief that could be held by a majority in a society, would arguing against its existence be evident towards actually believing in it? If it is of topic discussion, acknowledging the issue doesn't give merit to believing in it or not. The reason why the issue is commonly debated is because it has been an influential factor in just about every society, it has a noticeable impact on a community and legislation, and simply deviating from a commonly held belief is going to cause issues with others that believe the opposite. You acknowledge the issue or subject, not the existence. I can sit here and argue that there are no Centaurs in existence, but arguing about the existence of the subject is not subconsciously acknowledging the existence of it, now is it?

As for the statistics, I know Atheists from other boards that do attend religious services simply for learning different beliefs, or simply because small communities are reliant of it for social interaction. Along with the statistics on that, other people could be hiding their disbeliefs, but since it can determine deviance, they tend to stay within the confines of church so they are not ousted out of a social group, which would more than likely be found in close-knit communities. There are also a larger numbers of contributing factors to that, but attending church isn't determinate of a belief, but it is a good precursor to being identified to having a certain belief.

As for the state of mental confusion, I'd like to see where it was exactly stated as that, and a link or copy of the study. My best bet is that you skewed every bit of information to credit a biased argument on your side, or you misjudged the statistics and stated that Atheists were in a state of mental confusion simply because of the idea that you couldn't grasp, based on the statistics that still attend church, or you just failed to read the whole study that could mention the factors that could increase the percentage of Atheists attending church, and used that to make your supposition that arguing its existence would show that they believe in its existence, or going to church acknowledges is always determinate of a belief.

The study might be reputable, but I don't think you are when it comes to summarizing it up for us.

Btw, I am enjoying my Life.
There is more ...ummm, how to say it. I guess....EVERYTHING than I could ever have imagined.
So much to experience, to learn, to feel, to see, to do....
A hundred thousand lifetimes would not be enough to encompass it all.
Yet you waste your time desiring an imaginary existance.
You think you deserve better.
How sad.
Not sad....
I deserve Hell, or at least death by a thousand cuts, but...
I received Forgiveness!
Nothing Imaginary about the Lord...
No matter how much you want Him to be!

Proverbs 1
1:1 The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, king of Israel;
1:2 To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of
understanding;
1:3 To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment,
and equity;
1:4 To give subtilty to the simple, to the young man knowledge
and discretion.
1:5 A wise [man] will hear, and will increase learning; and a
man of understanding shall attain to wise counsels:
1:6 To understand a proverb, and the interpretation; the words
of the wise, and their dark sayings.
1:7 The fear of the LORD [is] the beginning of knowledge:[but]
fools despise wisdom and instruction.
1:8 My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not
the law of thy mother:
1:9 For they [shalt be] an ornament of grace to thy head, and
chains about thy neck.

When someone Knows something that can provide Testable, Repeatable, Verifiable Evidence.... Just as you could pull the coins from your pocket and count each and every one... I could count it, some guy in Vancouver could count it... I could Test it to Verify they are real coins... You could pull them out and show the world....
When Someone Believes something they need no Testable, Repeatable, Verifiable Evidence... You could Believe you have a buck forty in coins in your pocket because you Feel something in your pocket But until you pull it out and count it you cannot Know it....
"But until you pull it out and count it you cannot Know it.."
That is ludicrous!!!!
Do you know the name of the first girl you kissed?
Can you provide proof???
Could I know her name without you telling me???
No!
You cannot tell me what I "KNOW"....
You only "THINK" you can!
The fact is this... Just as we Christians know Christ is real...
You CAN test that... Repent, open your heart to Him, and
you will FIND Him!
Then... you will be on here posting the opposite!
But... you don't want that... I understand your fear, as
