You got me there.
I've toyed with (but don't necessarily take it as a serious religion) that perhaps each one of us dreams up our own reality, and that everything and everyone you experience is merely the result of your own creativity and emotions. Kind of like your own matrix program.
Where's the evidence? Well we already know that each one of us experiences life out of a unique viewpoint anyway that is never duplicated in any other human being. So, you kinda do live your own version of reality. Perhaps you are the creator thereof.
There is not the faintest idea of any "creator"!

If you say NO then you must explain the priests and the alter boys.
If you say YES then YOU'RE the preacher.

..'teasyBrute'....you are von hateful, hypocritical, hAtheistic schidt-for-brains.

.....Of the 'hundreds of thousands' of Good, Honest, Clean, Hard-working, Compassionate, Popes, Cardinals, Bishops, Priests, Brothers, Nuns, and layMembers of the Clergy that have come down the pipes withIN the Roman Catholic Church over the past 2000 years, YOU with your schidt-for-brains judge this great number by the 0.0001perCent of monsters who abused some kids entrusted into their care.

Of course, BobLoblah is the first von to state that these monsters shoud be shot with a ball of their own schidt.

....but its the schidt-for-brains of eeejits like YOU that make such assanine statements as you have made.

Ps:....BobLoblah believes that whereAs someone in your family's history has Phucked his own daughter, then YOU and everyVon in your family are guilty of incest of the highest order.

....you should have your head lopped OFf.

Merry Christmas. Phuck you berry much.

I, and probably most atheists, don't really care what most theists believe. We care about actions they take premised on those beliefs.
When 19 theists, inspired by their belief in god and their interpretation of how god wants them to behave, murder over 3,000 people by flying planes into tall buildings, atheists care about what theists believe.
When theists insist on having myths taught in school as science, atheists care about what theists believe.
When Muslims treat women like property, engage in honor killings, prevent women from getting educations, and generally limit their ability to achieve their full human potential, atheists care.
When Christians try to prevent women who may or may not share their religion from deciding whether to have a child, and even want to prevent women from having access to contraceptives, atheists care.
When the religious state of Israel and the theocratic state of Iran threaten mass destruction because of their beliefs, atheists care.
When theists insist on public prayer being included in non-religious activities, atheists care.
When theists insist on having the government enforce their religious dogma as laws applicable to all, or demand government endorsement of religion, atheists care.
BUT, when theists gather in their churches to pray, atheists don't care.
When theists pray before meals in their own homes, atheists don't care.
When theists pray silently to themselves in school, atheists don't care.
When Theists raise their own money to build new churches, atheists don't care.
When theists erect nativity scenes on private property, without public funds, atheists don't care.
When theists go door to door to pass out religious literature, atheists don't care.
When theists erect billboards with religious messages on them, atheists don't care.
BUT, while atheists respect your right to believe what you want, and practice your religion freely, we do not feel bound to respect the actual absurdities you believe, any more than you do the beliefs of followers of other religions, and we retain our own free speech rights to laugh at you.
When you come here and post the 1,000,000th iteration of Pascal's Wager, thinking it is some profound new insight you just thought up, we reserve the right to howl in derision, roll our eyes, or simply point out all the holes in your logic (or all three).

Good advice. Throw bob nobgobbler a picture of the pope in his Hitler Youth uniform or an article on how the vatican is defaulting on abuse payments from time to time and he's "happy".

I wouldn't say that in your place. You only make them laugh at you.
If they don't believe in God, how could they be afraid of hell if it does not exist? Unless, by hell, you mean the grave. Then, to hell is where we are all heading.

Of course no god no hell
