I'm speaking mainly about the atheists who are chronically ill with terminal cancer, or other life threatening illnesses. Since atheists believe the grave is the end of life, and the end of suffering, then why don't they just go ahead and end it, instead of suffering for months, and even years?

Dave, you have the floor.

thats really too stupid a question to comment on but if christians have this amazing life just waiting for them... why do they have heart surgery or even go to the doctor?? why not die asap? are you scared that after life might be a fairy tale after all??

They also lobby for legal assisted suicide.

Try to break out of the box and read things other than the bible every so often.

That is quite puzzling.
Xians panties are always in a bunch when someone in a comatose state is taken off of life support, when obviously god must have meant for them to die (beings they can't live without man's technology), and man was clearly just fighting gods will.

actually the main reason why people even commit suicide in the first place is usually because of medial problems..

like asthma and stuff..

God doesn't decide who dies .. we decide who die.. God only judges us when we die..

the reason why we decide who dies.. is because God respects good work..

and if we discover earthly immortality he won't care..

also the bible says nothing about the end of the world..

Christians don't kill themselves because the bible says you go to hell if you kill yourself..

I"m surprised you didn't know that??

Why does God let satan fail if it is hard work to be the devil?? since God loves good work??

Because the devil is working against God who also works.. and nobody is supposed to outwork God..

God does not work for our death.. the devil works for us to die..

God works for us to live forever.. period..

When God smites people it is because the devil made them do something which made God feel like they didn't like him anymore and worship the devil..

if god doesnt decide who lives or dies then why do you pray to him for someone to get better when sick? not going to a doctor when you have a heart attack is not killing yourself!!! its having faith in your gods healing ability
i'm surprised you didnt know this???

The devil can't do anything without consulting the bible god first. Read Job.

The bible god is responsible for all deaths, even the 10 that kinda sorta are because of Satan when the trivial bible god made a bet with him.
**********

Think about it.

God supposedly makes the devil, then makes humans for the purpose of pleasing himself,(remember, god is all knowing) then the devil after being thrown out of heaven immediately deceives gods "perfect creation".

This god either has a twisted mind, or is as dumb as rocks.

"dumb as rocks", for $600, Alex. What is the "God" created by bronze-age goat herders?
