Atheism sounds like a great religion. How's it going so far? Changing the world, are you?<quoted text>
Then your life is far emptier than the life of an atheist. We atheists believe in facing life fearlessly and without zany superstitions. We believe that hospitals should be built instead of churches, that good deeds should be done instead of prayers said. We want poverty vanquished, war eliminated, and disease extirpated from the face of the earth. We are above all humanists who do not just speak of our love of humanity, but practice it in our daily lives.
We believe in the scientific method. We believe in solving our own problems and not trying to lay them on a nonexistent supernatural force. We believe that heaven should be erected here on earth. There are no rewards after death except our progeny. We should lay up the treasures of life and the pursuit of happiness for us and our children and their children, not for pipe-dreams and streets of gold.
Most of us are familiar with the historical evils of Christianity, with its illogical book full of contradictions and lies, with its savage inquisitions, its cruel jealous deity, genocide, human sacrifice, and bloody crusades.
These are a few of the many sound reasons why we are atheists.
Christianity (albeit practiced poorly by sinners like me) is based on faith in Jesus Christ, God's Son, who died for you and for me while His enemy, and reconciled us to God so we can have a relationship with Him...His original intent. My life has purpose, and I have a future beyond the grave. I do not base my world view on what science tells me, but on what the Creator tells me. One day, every knee shall bow and confess Jesus Christ is Lord of all. Until then, I will proclaim Him as my Savior and Lord now. You can know Him, too. I pray you will one day.
