Atheists may want to take a little more care with their lives as it is their one and only.
Believers in an afterlife should be impatient to die if they deep down truly believe.
There may be no ahteist in a fox-hole but there are no believers running from the bullets or bombs.
If you truly believed you would want to die as soon as possible wouldn't you.
Believers are the cowards as they want there to be a loving deity looking our for you, you want there to be a purpose and meanint to your life. you're so scared of oblivion you prefer to believe in heaven.
When I die I will be nothing. I am not scared of that just as I wasn't scared before I was born. Oblivion is comforting. I don't need your god. My life has no purpose but the one I choose.
Oblivion "would" actually be nice ...but, the really brave understand .."We are held responsible for how we live our lives !"

<quoted text>Why don't you try reading it. No famine, no siege, not this time. In extreme situations, parents die, and sacrifice their food for the children, but the buybull god knows nothing of parenting. A cow pie, does have value, you I'd think, don't have quite as much as that.
Oh, I'm quite sure a siege was involved , and, in famine situations (infants usually die first) as they "need" a mothers milk ...

As, to whether or not "I" actually hold "any" value ...Lets just agree to disagree ,on that front ....(happy face emoticon)

Really?
You demonstrate your extreme lack of education, with respect to the greater cosmos, and also with respect to sub-atomic processes.
They are anything BUT "well oiled clock".
They behave exactly as random things would-- especially at the sub-atomic level, where EVERYTHING is based on statistics and probability.
<quoted text>
So?
An answer of "do not know" is WAY better than a convenient lie (as in godditit)
Why?
Because "do not know" allows for trying to find out.
Exactly the opposite of "goddidit" with stops any and all questions cold.
Or, Why not "ask" .."How did God ,do it ?"

Thank-you , for expounding on the sub-atomic processes ...they, behave randomly , but as sure as there is a Hell the Sun "will" rise tomorrow ..gravity will keep you planted to the Earth ....There is order .

Brave people are honest enough to admit that they have no proof of god.

You can't even prove your god, why should we believe any of your opinions?

It is a natural reaction for some. I grew up in Manhattan, and September 11th, 2001 was the second day of my senior year of high school.
Though I didn't believe in God at the time, I found myself saying, "God bless you" to my friends as we parted ways that day, and in the days that followed.
That faint, involuntary urge to call on God's name soon grew into a desire to read His word and then a hunger for friendships with people who believed in Him.
Two years later, I said out loud what I knew in my heart was true: "I am a Christian."
if you knew it, why did it take you two years?

Answer: that's how long the brainwashing takes.

The fact that there is no proof of god makes that an absolutely stupid question.

Well, "something" caused the Universe to exist ...

B) And, we enjoy a moral standard ..Who was the better man Hitler or Mr.Rogers ..??...We can objectively assert Mr.Rogers ..We "can" tell the difference betwixt right and wrong ,(that everybody can agree to)..That would not be possible without a God ..

"Everyone has been profoundly affected by this wanton violence and destruction inflicted upon our community by two young men unknown to all of us," said O'Malley, speaking to a crowd of mourners that included Boston Police Commissioner Edward Davis, who sat in the front row of the cavernous cathedral with other elected officials. "It's very difficult to understand what was going on in their heads. What demons were operating, what ideologies or politics, or the perversions of their religion."

By whom?

You?

There is no reason to believe in a god or gods, is there?

The only way people are held responsible, is if they get caught.

And even then? If they have sufficient piles of cash? Not even then.

Not anymore they don't -- modern science has figured out how to replace "mother's milk" with suitable alternatives.

Take me: I was born allergic to my mother's milk-- I was raised without. I did not die.
