They believe that "God" saw to it the that they had a bible so that they could be warned if they don't believe the bible is true, the same god will punish them for not believing that he is cruel.<quoted text>
They don't even pretend. They KNOW.
That is fear-based religion ... period!
I have no fear that I will be punished for being an Atheist ... unless some believers get a hold of me and burn me at the stake for insulting their "image" of a god.
Humans need to find their own self worth ... and they won't find it IN religion.
