Bullschmidtt, man. C'mon, get real.
The motivation for those atheists (not you, them) is the harming of religion and removal of religious icons.
I can give you several possible reasons (motivations) for why people (atheists and theists alike) would want to do those things.

I can tell you my motivations for supporting the separation of church and state. Other people will likely share some of those.

Nobody will be motivated by theism or atheism, because neither of those dictate any direction.

If you disagree, then why would atheists spend money to put up signs on buses that say "There's probably no god"?!
That's just being helpful.

We want people to know that we've looked into this, and there's really nothing substantial behind it. That is motivated primarily by empathy.

Yup. And your atheism motivates you to feel that way. I guess you are 'one of them'...
You are a buffoon.

No, I don't really understand that. What's the difference?
Lacking a belief in deities is not the same as believing that deities don't exist.

It's not necessary to actively believe that something doesn't exist when someone claims that it does. If you don't accept their claim as true, you can simply withhold belief.

Attempting to falsify someone's claims may at times be beneficial, so you'll see atheists who will say that they believe there are no gods, for whatever reasons led them to that conclusion.

Nope. You wrote: "Some people just have it taken away by God in order to murder innocent children."
I wasn't referring to God, I was referring to people.
A fetus isn't a child, just as a seed isn't a tree.
No, I'm not kidding. Am I just to believe you or will you offer some kind of explanation?
Nanny state. The nanny state burdens people with high taxes and numerous government regulations to totally control our lives and make us more dependant on government, in its quest for more power. In practice, it assumes the citizenry is stupid and that intrusive legislation is mandatory to protect people from themselves.
You don't use or appreciate the infrastructure that the government provides? Would you really trust business and industry to regulate itself? That hasn't worked out too well in the past.

Actually the masses were pretty content to go along with his proposals. Hitler didn't posses mind control abilities, you know.

No atheist can represent atheism better than another. You either are, or aren't an atheist.
THAT is genius. That makes sense to me.

I'm trying to understand, Tide. Please believe me in that.

Keep me in check on this, ok?

Um, wasn't it necessary for Jesus to be killed? Therefore, weren't the Romans and Jews doing God's will?
Had Jesus not killed himself (essentially), and lived to a nice peaceful old age, Christianity would not exist.
Have you read the Gospel of Judas ?

That is the whole point of it.

Yes, I understand that. What I'm saying is that when I say that to you atheists, I'm using the 2nd and 4th meanings... This has also been explained to you many times.
Don't be disingenuous.

Noun: faith
1. A strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny
2. Complete confidence in a person or plan etc
3. An institution to express belief in a divine power
4. Loyalty or allegiance to a cause or a person

How does not having the belief that the theist has that there is a deity, equate to:

2. Complete confidence in a person or plan etc

4. Loyalty or allegiance to a cause or a person

Understand, there would have to be unbiased evidence for a person to ignore, then not believe it, and have faith you were correct in not believing.

Then the sign on the bus read:

"We've looked into whether or not God exists, and there's really nothing substantial behind it."

But the theists question is this:

What have you done to "look into it"?

I think you don't understand the meaning of that chapter.
"Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’” 1 Samuel 15

Must be what "The Lord" told your hero Adolf, too.

What a POS deity !
