So much complexity and so little simplicity in many of the beliefs humans have created to appease their fears, no wonder so many are so confused.

No one has any business believing Metallicus's claim? I BELIEVE IT.
You forgot all about the soul/spirit that NEVER DIES and is immortal/eternal.
Read some two posts up as you might fit right into one of Beaul's three descriptions of "the misplaced or lost souls of the ignorant".
I was talking to Beaul today and I asked IT this question, "is it better *harder won fight* to gain the soul of an atheist, a non-believer or a true believer in God faith". It answered this way:
1. The non-believer is prime as it has no idea it has a soul so I can take it without its even knowing I've done so.
2. The believer is trumped up triple as it has doubts about its soul at times; and during those I can convince is worthless (and through some maneuvering/promises of riches wealth, anything desired sells it to me).
3. The atheist is the easiest, as I can convince hold the argument they had a worthless soul (wasted as in they not in recognision) and without telling, was mine from the beginning.
So, the point of this thread is to try to understand those of you that don't believe in God or an afterlife. Some of you, not most, seem desperate to convince others that there is no God and that those with beliefs are stupid or delusional. I find it ironic from my point of view that those people consider believers to be the foolish ones. When I say believers I mean those that believe in a higher power or an afterlife. Nothing specific.
Okay, so my one question after all that is this... If you believe there is no God or afterlife what is the point of life? If we are on this rock for one short life, a relative blink of an eye in geologic terms and never return then what is the point?
