Well the study you posted answered some of these questions, but evidently your closed mind cannot process those answers. BTW, I was not focusing on your grammar. I focus on your hypocrisy, and denial.<quoted text>
Stop spinning things and answer the question.
Wouldn't it be a more effective use of your time to try and help those Atheists "Unbelievers" who are afflicted by drug and alcohol addiction,who havwe mental problems and a higher suicide rate than the average,as opposed to worrying about my grammar?
It is a simple question..
Several studies have shown this to be true,then,you tell me why you believe this is occuring in your community.
Why are Atheists attending religious services on a regular basis? What is religion providind them that Atheism is not?
Why is there a higher rate of mental issues,suicides and alcohol and drug addiction?
And please,don't tell me they go to church because they like the music,the rituals or the architecture.
Or,to please theier friends and relatives....
I certainly have not claimed one should not try to help people with the problems cited, so why would you make such an accusation? Likely for a diversion from the substance as per usual with you.
I often try to help those addicted to alcohol or other substances. I was once an alcoholic and I have not had a drink in over fifteen years. My example helps teach. I needed no god to stop drinking. I used the power of my own will. I used the reasoning of the problems over-consumption can cause to determine why I should stop drinking altogether.
The study you cited told of why many atheists go to church. The main reason seems to be due to others in the family being members and thus they go due to family cohesiveness.
The suicide issue was with very elderly persons on the brink of death and likely in pain, as the study cited. I have shown reasons why this is logical, but ignored them. I guess I will have to repeat this until you can focus enough to respond to it.
Many might just reason that artificially prolonging life is a futile effort that is a burden to the surviving family members. Some of these reasons are financial. Some might not wish to endure the extreme pain of the body breaking down to death.
I fail to understand why a theist who believes in an afterlife tries so hard to prolong natural death if he or she has lived a long life. Seems to me the person might just be doubting that whole afterlife story.
