In your face you bitter, unbelieving souls.

GOD LOVES YOU ANYWAYS
----------
John 3:16-18
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.

BUT IF YOU DONT REPENT
----------

Revelation 20:15
15 Anyone whose name was not found written in the book of life was thrown into the lake of fire.

Revelation 21:8
8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

I guess having an imaginary friend who hates all the same people you do is comforting to christians. Us non-believers just have to make do with reality.

If atheists are indeed less happy than believers, who can blame us?

Think of all the stupid christians we have to share the planet with.

Enough to make anyone puke!

It's not a study, it's a survey.
There's a difference.

The main ones being that it wasn't peer reviewed or developed by any professionals in any psychology fields.

"Christians are happier..."
is one of those statistical "facts", like:
Protestants are harder working that Catholics.
Women can't do maths.
Men cannot multi-task as well as women.
And the Earth is 6,000 years old.
Blah, blah.

They counted words such as "think" "reason" and "question" as unhappy words. Pretty unfair way to skew the results. Then again, I must admit most religious folks find those words and the accompanying concepts to be frightening in the extreme.

Of course, they're biased and indoctrinated.

God is one and alone, and none other existeth with Him--God is the One, the One who hath made all things--God is a spirit, a hidden spirit, the spirit of spirits, the great spirit of the Egyptians, the divine spirit--God is from the beginning, and He hath been from the beginning, He hath existed from old and was when nothing else had being. He existed when nothing else existed, and what existeth He created after He had come into being, He is the Father of beginnings--God is the eternal One, He is eternal and infinite and endureth for ever and aye--God is hidden and no man knoweth His form. No man hath been able to seek out His likeness; He is hidden to gods and men, and He is a mystery unto His creatures. No man knoweth how to know Him--His name remaineth hidden; His name is a mystery unto His children. His names are innumerable, they are manifold and none knoweth their number--God is truth and He liveth by truth and He feedeth thereon. He is the king of truth, and He hath stablished the earth thereupon--God is life and through Him

See I too can quote meaningless passages from old books.

Who's bitter?

You really shouldn't project your own hate onto others.

It's not healthy.

Religitards are happier because ignorance is bliss.

Education and thinking force people to face and deal with reality, which isn't always fun.

True.
People like us who have to deal with reality also have to deal with the reality that many people (religious people) will not ever understand or accept reality.

What a horrible build of a sentence, though I'm sure you understand what I'm trying to say.
