No one wants to be alone in misery. They have come to their own conclusion that there is nothing that is going to exist after their body dies, and
they want others to feel the same way as them. Like I said, if everyone around you is happy and you're sad, it'll make you feel worse. If even one
person is also sad, it provides some comfort.
Do you think they just want to have their atheist belief, be quiet (which is what they should do) and become dust in the wind? Heck no, they need to
shout from the rooftops that their own fate is everyone else's as well.
I think they denounce religion because that way at least they'll have free choice, but even if you're rebelling against something, you're giving it
power and it isn't free choice. You're just being "anti" whatever it is you don't like.
If they did be quiet with their beliefs, I think too in a way they'd become and feel like an animal compared to others. But if they can attack and
lash out against the people that they feel (and are) superior to them, then they feel like their life has value and it gives them a pretense of
superiority. When in reality, it is baseless.
BUT, I will play atheist in an attempt to have a believer out there somewhere convince me that there is a god. Sure, I'd love to be convinced, I am
sure every atheist and agnostic would.
But they fail, every one of them.
That is pretty pathetic and frankly that's what a lot of people do. Truly the American way, forget about God, our god is laziness. You're hopeless
with an attitude like that. No one has to do your work for you, no one should do it for you. If you have a desire to connect with God, good for you.
If you don't care and don't have a desire to connect with God, don't expect others to miraculously prove to you anything. Don't expect them to
implant a desire in your heart for God. You fail yourself, no one else fails you. It is everyone's duty to come to God.
Forget about what you "believe", it's what a person desires and that is what you work with.
