Your statement is contradictory. You say people "who believe in something." which is near every human on the planet - even many atheists believe in something, calling themselves secular humanists.
Then you say they can do physical feats that most humans cannot but they are most humans.
"they have very little stress in there life if any "
That's because they live is a smaller world, a naive little bubble. Religious people are more content because they live in a fantasy land while the rest of us actually recognise uncertainty in reality.

It was an example of what SOMEONE WHO IS RELIGIOUS can do. And no most do "not live in a little bubble"
a study showed that MOST RELIGIOUS PEOPLE, get out, and experience more than someone who DOES NOT believe in something.
I am Buddhist, yet i am on ATS, and not "neieve' as you put it.
EVERYONE ON ATS THAT BELIEVES IN A RELIGION.
this guy above, is basically saying you live in a bubble, and we are all naive...
yea...i think the sheer fact of you saying that statement, just goes to show how average the intelligence of an atheist really is
"naive" yet most on this site, have some religious belief
