So at this point in time, a thousand people are either screwed or they aren't. And by that, I mean they're screwed by a god who they couldn't give a bowel movement less about. How many of those people want to take their chances? I can show you a few Facebook pages that are heavily populated right now with people who have had it up to their necks with the crap their fellow man pulls in the name of righteousness and "the one true god."
The direction of the thread certainly doesn't coincide with the logic of the OP. I kind of think the one who wrote the OP is also the one who derailed it all.
Atheists do not have a belief system we have an accumulation of scientific knowledge.
Can you say for certain that god did it to any of those questions or do you believe that one day man will find the real answer?

No jesus wasn't the son of any creator unless you count man's imagination.
There isn't even any reliable proof jesus existed, if he was so important surely there would be some evidence.
You do realise the bible was written decades after jesus supposedly died don't you?
You're right about one thing though, you're never too old to learn, Put down that stupid bible and buy a science book with some actual researched facts written in it. Aren't you getting too old for fairytales.edit on 14-2-2013 by GafferUK1981 because: (no reason given)
I hear this "ENRGY CANT BE DESTROYED ONLY TRANSFERED!!!!" # all of the time from afterlife proponents. And they're right it can't. But "You" aren't energy in any sense of the word which goes beyond the physical processes that cause you to be. Once you die, you decay into the ground and the energy that was you (e.g. Your brain which forms your consciousness within the confines of your skull alone) is aborbed into the soil and turned into trees, worms, nitrate for plants and whatever else. That's it.
