I don't hate anyone. I don't hate you. I can show you how to get into heaven. But you won't hear me.
If there were a heaven, and it was populated with hateful people like you, I would prefer not to go there. The prospect of spending eternity with hateful folks like you would make your heaven and your hell indistinguishable except for the climate.

I've stopped before and considered if I'm wrong. Several times. Have you?

To have a rational belief you need to have some kind of proof, otherwise it is just wishful thinking.

Atheism is "wishful thinking" and money in the pocket for atheist religious authors ?

Atheism is rational thinking, based in reality, rather than on superstition and fantasy.

I own several excellent books on atheism, which has been money which I deem well spent.

You need proof. I don't. That's why the reward is so great

Atheism, like any religion, has its books, dvds and believers.
Rational thinking and atheism seems questionable,
rational thinking seems a mantra of the atheist philosophy?
Quantitative materialism seems old wine in new bottles.

The onus is on the one making the extraordinary claim.

Say I was to claim the anglo-saxon Woden exists and that he is the one true God. This is an extraordinary claim. The onus is not on you to dis-prove my claim.

I would have to come up with some evidence, to show that I had not gone bonkers!

So you see those who claim super-natural things exist, have to show why they think they exist, and to show the evidence to support their claims.

Who do I have to show? You? What good does that do me? I believe you don't. Why should I care about your soul?

Technically atheism is a lack of belief, not a belief. Hey, but I am not a spokesperson for atheism. Atheists can be found in difficult places on your favourite, Richard Dawkin's spectrum of belief.

Soul, or do you mean mind? I have yet to see any evidence that human minds live forever as souls.

If You see no evidence of a soul,
then thousands of years of philosophical speculation
has been resolved.
