A new set of studies in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology finds that atheists and agnostics report anger toward God either in the past or anger focused on a hypothetical image of what they imagine God must be like. Julie Exline, a psychologist at Case Western Reserve University and the lead author of this recent study, has examined other data on this subject with identical results. Exline explains that her interest was first piqued when an early study of anger toward God revealed a counterintuitive finding: Those who reported no belief in God reported more grudges toward him than believers.

How can an Atheist be mad at something they don't believe in? They might be mad that they wasted most of their life believing bullsh*t that is the Bible.
Other then that, from what I can tell, most atheists don't care. Each one has their own view, that's just my opinion based off observation.

Well you are obviously mad about something because you call the bible bullsh*t, so apparently you cared about it at one point in time and something changed that.
Bad experience i guess or did you run afoul of pseudo-christians?
Too many people focus on the bible being a collection of stories wether or not it is true does not matter. What matters is the MESSAGES contained in the book. Sadly most people do not get the messages, instead they get tangled up in wether "this" is real or "that" is real and end up blinded and unable to see the forest through the trees. Jesus had alot of good messages to learn from if people would only bother to read them and heed them.

I think these thoughts are positive, for this post. I want non-believers to tell me how they feel, whether they have a person in their lives they feel passionate about, or if they are faced with different challenges from the world and feel defeated. I feel that same way you do.
I equate positive and negative to life, this is physical. To a spiritual person it is the same. We are the only species able to make a decision to help life. Well, it's crazy how we look in our recent past and we can see that it has been the opposite. The powers have used the world's wealth for themselves. I would not ask for this, but if everyone in the world was like me I'm sure we would have found a way to make natural food and protiens taste just like meat, insteading of all the war expenses that have occurred in the last 100 years. I'm not a vegeterian, I'm just saying we as a whole are capable of making decisions to help us and we have not.
