Everything we use as information is rooted in belief and faith. If you think something you know is an ultimate truth then you need to read more. If you don't think so then you believe or have faith in it.

What does God say about Atheists? It just calls them fools!

Thereforere it's not my problem what any Atheist thinks he is and I cannot make any other judgement as God has already said what an atheist is.

So there are only two possibilies. The atheist is right, or he's wrong.

If he's right, nothing changes for me in this life or the 'non-life' afterward!

If he's wrong and there is a God, nothing changes for me but for the atheist, well, everything changes.

To me an atheist has more faith than I do and risks more than I do. Ultimately, the atheist is not my responsibility if they are closed to a hope set before them.

This really is a non arguement

Same goes for any god then, a theist isn't a polytheist and risks the rejection of their gods... Krishna and Thor may be upset with you!

Why?

I don't see how anything would change in my life in the (highly unlikely) eventuality of seeing proof that there god(s) exist.

I could see a big change in my life , except it would be my death. I would see a huge change in everyone's lives as it is obvious that regardless of faith, noone know what god is or what he does.

I don't see any change happening in my life unless (a) god directly changes it, I have been living all my life in the same way, first, because of what I was told, thinking that there was a god, then, when I grew older, thinking that there isn't a god.

I see it like what happened before people knew about gravity; people were affected by gravity in the same way before and after, only after we learned what to expect from it.

Personally I don't assert that there is no god, I just say I don't believe there is. God really isn't neccessary for the universe to function, and in my view only serves the purpose of being the puppetmaster in religious dramas. The earth doesn't spin because god says so, it spins because of all those fancy scientific reasons. People don;t treat each other good because god instilled that virtue in people, they do it because it's instinctually the best thing to do. It's how we lasted this long.

As far as all the psychobabble mumbo jumbo goes, who cares? Believe what you want and be content with it.
