To be honest I don’t actually know an atheist who deliberately lies. I believe that many think the same way as me, I see no need to lie, lies upset me and I can’t imagine deliberately upsetting myself.<quoted text>
I've often wondered if creationists are all secretly atheists. After all, they all lie their azzes off and have a bad habit of ignoring God's Commands.
I do know several “theists” and being on topix I know ‘of’ many more who willingly lie for their god. They do not see the hypocrisy in their lies because they imagine god is on their side so they must be right.
Take away the babble, qur’an, tanakh etc and the great majority of reasons to lie goes with it.
