A student of Rabbi Zusha of Anipoli once asked him why God allowed atheism to flourish in the world.

“Atheism,” answered Rabbi Zusha,“is one of the most important doctrines in the world. Imagine if a believer sees a hungry man in the street. He would say,‘I hope God will help him.’ But when an atheist sees him, he runs to help because he thinks he is the only one who can assist him!”

Actually it was an atheist that created god.

So without atheist there would be no god for the gullible.

The atheist wasn't created, it is the theist who is "created".

Atheist is the default, everything that is free of theism, is atheist. And all theist, were atheist, before indoctrination.

This is true. If one wasn't indoctrinated in religious rubbish they wouldn't believe in gods.

God didn't create atheists. People just have the freedom of choice, that's all. People have choice to act good or bad. God doesn't control that obviously. Lol!

No, accurate. If you want lame, read the Bible..

The Bible was written in 3 languages by approximately 40 men of diverse backgrounds over the course of 1500 years.
Here is a list of the books in order with the author and approximate date they were written.

Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy = Moses - 1400 B.C.

Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel, 2 Samuel = Samuel/Nathan/Gad - 1000 - 900 B.C.

Nahum = Nahum - 650 B.C.
Habakkuk = Habakkuk - 600 B.C.
Zephaniah = Zephaniah - 650 B.C.
Haggai = Haggai - 520 B.C.
Zechariah = Zechariah - 500 B.C.
Malachi = Malachi - 430 B.C.
Matthew = Matthew - A.D. 55
Mark = John Mark - A.D. 50
Luke = Luke - A.D. 60
John = John - A.D. 90
Acts = Luke - A.D. 65
Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians, 1 Thessalonians, 2 Thessalonians, 1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, Titus, Philemon = Paul - A.D. 50-70
Hebrews = unknown, mostly likely Paul, Luke, Barnabas, or Apollos - A.D. 65
James = James - A.D. 45
1 Peter, 2 Peter = Peter - A.D. 60
1 John, 2 John, 3 John = John - A.D. 90

Religion is not bad. Of course a typical atheist will bring up history, and 911 but in my beliefs those were still the choices of people. Some are good with persuasive speaking. A child raised by religious people are productive. I see it everywhere. Remember many atheists were religious at one time. When people grow older, they have choices. You cannot judge people on their beliefs just because you don't believe. On that same note I shouldn't judge you either. I won't.

From the list above it's amazing that nothing in the bible was written during the life of their messiah, the most important figure in their religion. Slight oversight on the collaborators of the book?

Me? It isn't a matter of you or me.

Most religionists (the reasonable ones) agree that the three-in-one offer of Christianity and that Jesus died for our sins is simply an act of faith, entirely unsubstantiated by any scientific or generally accepted proof.

The dictionary seems to agree...

I suggest that your statements are a good illustration of what religion does to the human mind's critical faculties.
