As an athiest I feel that it is in the best interests of the future of humanity to discard this archaic mind control scheme.
One poster made reference to athiests not beleiving in an "after life".
This is incorrect.
The basis of this idea comes from religion teaching that there is a "heaven", and it seems that their whole world revolves around the idea that if
the follow this religion the will go to this "heaven".
They are living their lives looking forward to dieing.
Death is the theme of their religion.
Death is the theme of their worship. Death becomes the theme of their lives.
For me as an athiest, living to the fullest extent is the theme of my life.
I don't live in fear of death. It has a way of coming at the end of everyone's life and there is no evidence of such a thing as "hell".
It does seem, however, that many people's lives are horrendous, and that could be termed "hell'. And they didn't have to die to get there.
Further, Satan is said to be so evil, yet the Bible say absolutely nothing about any evil acts on his part.
Only God does evil things. And Xtians are looking forward to spending eternity with him.
