Atheists are mentally ill.
All research and evidence leads to the conclusion of these facts:
+Atheists are deeply depressed.
+Atheists have the higher suicide rate out of any belief system.
+Atheists suffer from social anxiety and negative perception (confidence issues).
+Atheists have an irrational hatred and obsession with religion leading to more social problems.
+There are no mental health benefits of atheism. It is devoid of rational thinking and mental protection.

This contributor with the London UK ISP who uses multiple monikers sounds desperate to believe there's a god.
He's apparently prejudiced against non-believers and willing to believe anything that appears (to him) to discredit them. Perhaps this indicates the harm that raising someone 'in the faith' can do to the human mind - the shameful process of convincing a child that one religion is the 'true faith'. A Jesuit one put it this way, "give me a boy under 7 and I will give you a (Roman) Catholic for life'.
I think Jonny Eve sums-up many a non-believers point of view....
Like most non-believers, Jonny is a happy, successful and well-balanced individual. Our friend with the London ISP seems comparitively unbalanced.(Let's hope he cheers up soon. He sounds a bit depressed :-)
