The real reason you will not believe in Christianity is because it would interfere too much in your daily life. You'll feel like you're being forced to stop drinking and smoking and all the things deemed "wrong" by the Bible that you'll soon start to think that it's nothing more but "control"

I went off the bible when I read about Noah. God was so angry towards man, he decided to kill all the animals except 2 - even though it was only man that had angered Him. He decimated EVERY living creature through no fault of their own. Here was an omnipotent that behaved worse than Hitler, Saddam Hussein and ll the rest of the despots rolled into one. Sorry not my type of God - you can keep him.

You only hear atheists complain about Christianity. This is because they were exposed to it at a young age and were resentful towards it. Atheists should try other religions, that don't have to be based on god.

False! Another myth propagated by the religious.
I have been in terrible situations since I abandoned christianity and it never crossed my mind to turn to god. Many people come out of horrible situations only to lose their faith.
I view god as completely fictional so calling out to god in stressful situations would be like calling out to superman.
Look at Christopher Hitchens, I am fairly certain that he has not called on god.
Theists also like to lie about prominent atheist on their deathbeds. Darwin being the most well known example.
"No atheists in foxholes" is a disgusting cliche. The religious just cannot imagine that people are completely free of god in their life.
100% sure that if you were on a plane crashing to the earth the very last words from your mouth would be OHHHHH MYYYYYYYYY GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!

As an Agnostic I certainly won't be saved if God does exist. That being said, from a religious standpoint you are completely correct and most people are not willing to make the changes necessary to be religious because they are too difficult for people to embrace. The atheists on here (the noisy ones anyway) are ignorant and mean spirited and I would befriend a Christian who lives a moral decent life over a snotty atheist any day. You could argue all day as to whether Christianity is right or wrong, fact or fraud, but when it comes down to it, Christian beliefs help you live a moral life and make you a completely awesome friend and human being if practiced correctly. All non-religious people should respect the commitment that religious people make, the commitment to be good people.
