Okay, there's two of you dumbass atheists that couldn't answer the question.

Anyone else? How does atheism give a person hope?
Yet Atheists know how to love unconditionally. Even on topix.

You, the "moral" christian, don't even think(?) unconditional love exists.

We have more hope than you do. For living while we're alive.

You lot suffer and cause others to suffer, needlessly, for an alleged afterlife.

We also hope that all humans will find their humanity, stand against oppression and achieve knowledge of their true potential, amongst countless other things.

No imaginary beings needed.

Y'all wanna be miserable, frightened, self pitying pathetic excuses for humans, fine. I just don't see why you have to infect others with your horror.

Where is that damn rapture already!

Take them, take them jesus I am.

Love? They don‘t feel love. Love is a biblical term found 310 times in both the Old and New Testament. No, Atheist don’t feel love. Atheist experience natural selection and instincts given to them from evolution.
310 times and you lot still don't get it. Huh.

Google atheist countries and compare their standard of life w highly religious..start in Japan where 80% people are non religious.

Thank you,.

Japan is a country that believes in freedom.

Its true they have a large population of Agnostics and Atheist. But they dont suppress freedom of religion.

Compare this free country and standard of life with North Korea. North Korea is not a free country and doesnt believe in freedom of religion.

The simple fact is that gods or fairies don't exist. Gods are man-made:

that's why they're generally anthropomorphic,(not to mention silly).

Religion = superstition
Get over it. The world is better without superstition and divisive religious tribalism.

That's right. Freedom of and from religion, separation of church and state and secular principles in general promote a cohesive and peaceful society. Freedom of speech and expression and 'one law for all' are important while 'He arose from the dead' and 'true prophet' are mere superstitions like soothsaying and astrology.

You are clearly confused.
Science is not belief.
And that is where you failed, initially.
Science is rather the opposite of belief-- for belief is the acceptance of a claim, without evidence.
Science **requires** evidence **first**.
Do try to keep this straight in the future.
You clearly have a problem reading what is written.
Science is merely a tool invented by man to supposedly find "truth". Like all tools, it can and is sometimes misused and/or misapplied by man.
Science is not the opposite of belief either Einstein. It is often the very tool which encourages belief in one theory or another.
Science does not "require evidence first" either ya halfwit. It is employed to prove or disprove a hypothesis (which is what comes first) by searching for evidence that can be confirmed by an established method and accepted rules of what defines "evidence".
If "evidence" was required first, then all things would already be clearly uh, evident, and there would be no need for science to exist at all.
Now ya know Bob of Quantum Ignorance.

There was no single government, as such.
In North America, there were various tribes, many of whom were smaller than some European townships.
But even the largest typically practiced a pretty primitive style of dictatorship/tribal leader.
Which is a form of government.
But no national government existed in North America at the time of the European settlements.
"But even the largest typically practiced a pretty primitive style of dictatorship/tribal leader."

Horseshit oh Ignorant Bob of Quantum Proportions.
Tribal Councils most certainly were not and still are not " a pretty primitive style of dictatorship/tribal leader".

My Dear sweet morsel,

evolved, as in the completion of the human life cycle?

The first stage being birth then infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, followed by death?

I have yet to complete the entire cycle.

But I do realize that time will come. It shall be like a paratrooper jumping out of a airplane. Our experience of the last stage will be different my sweet darling. I will have a parachute. I would that you had one also.[hugs][tipping hat]

His problem, is he thinks science is the same as faith.
Obviously, it's not-- faith/belief is the acceptance of a claim-- for which there is no evidence.
Science is the exact opposite-- the evidence comes *first*, then science tries to explain it.
Religious people are too easily confused about this-- because they have never had to **think** about their **faith**(claims without evidence).

This part is hilarious, from that website:

"The First Church of Atheism wants you to pursue and cherish your realistic beliefs..."

What would those beliefs be?

Or maybe the author of that meant that he wants you to cherish your realistic "lack of" beliefs...
