1) The only thing wrong with it is that escaping from reality is habit forming and not a good thing. At least, that is the opinion of most therapists.
2A) Is mine the same as yours? Truth is a vague term at best. I like REALITY or NON-REALITY. A "truth" should fit in the REALITY column, sort of by definition. Sadly, that is not the case. If you accept and promote doctrine without a shred of skepticism I'm afraid that makes you Sheeple. Fortunately, civilizations require a certain number of Sheeple to function.
2B) Painting anything obscures the "truth" about that object or person.
2C) Indeed.
..You are wrong in regards to "young Earth theorist"..they do "not" shirk from debating/defending their beliefs ...someone who denies reality ...will avoid that topic ..
2A)..You label me a sheeple..and, then post civilization requires a certain number of sheeple.....Was I insulted..??

I find it difficult to believe "atheism" is natural state of mind ..
2)Including , that Atheist seem to hold that they are more intelligent than the rest of the unwashed masses...from whence this false pride..???
You are basing your opinion of atheists of the few you have met, and even worse based on the persona they play online. Also, statistically, atheists are better educated and have higher IQs, so there's that. And sometimes, with intelligence comes pride, wit, and the ability to use all three to look like a douchebag online. We've all been there.

Atheism may not be the natural state of mind for many people - they are finding that certain people are predisposed to religious or magical thinking because of certain factors, and that others are not. However, mankind's general proclivity for a certain state of mind says nothing about the truth of our collective fancy.

There's a difference between being wrong and being crazy. Not much, but there is definitely a difference. Reality is backed up with GOBS of good, solid evidence and denying it is ... well ... you call it what you like.

The wheels of civilization are greased by sheeple. It's nothing to be ashamed of. Indeed, it's the fundamental "truth" of your favorite Messiah's message. I'm an Atheist Sheeple. Far better to be a wheel than the grease I would think. But we're really not supposed to think about it that much.

Let me try smaller words for you.

Jesus your messiah FAILED to complete any special meaningful messianic prophecies. Fact. Since he failed why worship him as the messiah?

Why do secular nations who don't bother believing in God do so well?

I will start slowly with just these for now.

So you are admitting he failed as being the Jewish messiah? Again the messiah had guidelines written in the OT that he must complete BEFORE he could be the messiah. Jesus failed all of these so he cannot be the messiah and can only be a pagan god yes? So why worship a false messiah? Stop stalling answer the question.
2: No we didn't have a histort department. We had an award winning history department with several celebrated professors. Keep your little boy fetish to yourself sicko. Hawaii and Tibet so the fck what? Your meltdowns are great for a laugh.
2a: Japan and Switzerland are doing quite well as are the majority of secular nations. Yet again why are they doing so well when they uniformly minimize or outright reject God?
