what about the sane people where the concept of dsome fairy tale god isn't even an issue about belif or non-belief?

Do you have such categories for people who believe, don't believe, or require proof of the Easter Bunny also?

Actually, they're probably are any number of "mythical" ones, but I highly doubt that there are any real ones.

if you label someone with having "a dark side", you mean he has some sort of plans, an agenda. usually sinister and for his own purposes. right? so does an atheist have an agenda? no. does a religious person have a agenda? ALWAYS. therefore you can easily say "religious people have a dark side" but not atheists.

and they DO have a dark side.

You are a clueless one. An atheist is someone who does not believe in any god, like Buddhists or most non-religious people. An agnostic is someone who admits they don't know, there are a lot of agnostic theists and agnostic deists as well.
If Buddhism claims no god then what is source that judges/determines whether they'll be reincarnated and whether they come back as a dung beetle or a human? Buddhism has a reward/punishment aspect to it. The "What goes around, comes around." belief implies there is a Supreme Judge entity, a consciousness, making those decisions.

Reincarnation is considered a natural cycle of life which no more requires a "supreme judge" than sleeping and waking up.

I was going to say "ask a Buddhist" but then Hedonist answered your rather arrogant and simple minded question.

You cannot conceive of the possibility of any other alternative because you have tunnel vision, often a result of indoctrination though it can also be because of ignorance.

Some people believe in karma, some mystical balance in the universe much like how energy is always in a state of finding balance. Some believe in guilt being the driving force and judgment is made by the self. There are so many ideas of how existential forces exist, but being unable test these, there is no way to know if any of them do, or do not, exist. The point of all this is that the gods described by humanity, including the Abrahamic one, cannot exist for various reasons, the most important being that such a god would have left evidence of it's interactions within the universe yet there is none.

Are you allowing your emotions to overrule your rationality? If so, you might want to rethink that. It's at the top of a very slippery slope.

You ignorant sack of shyte! There is no such thing as karma. There is no spiritual force that causes nutjobs to receive some well-deserved punishment for bad deeds done. Evil people live long, happy lives just as some innocents suffer many injustices in their lives and sometimes die young. You have no evidence of karma either, moron.

This is very funny coming from an ass who claimed there is only chaos in the universe.

Go do another one of your fakewad youtube videos.

There is that fire anger I know of you all too well, however you were way off on your aim.

I never claimed karma was real, I just mentioned one of the "no god required" forms of universal judgment people believe in. I don't even believe in spirits, nothing, nada. To me supernatural is just another way to admit not knowing.
