“Some beliefs are so dangerous that it may be ethical to kill people for believing them”

Yes I agree with you that ats could be perceived as an atheist site but you cannot deny that there
are a lot of pro god threads aswell. I think that everyone has a right to there opinion and beliefs
that is why I said sorry to any religious people on ats, but what I said was MY opinion. Yes I would consider myself an atheist.I do not believe in god or an afterlife.and would not attack anyone for there beliefs...but I have had strong believers argue with me in an aggressive way that I was wrong. In my experience it is hard to have a normal debate with strong believers. I'm sorry I'm getting off topic abit from this, my main problem is not with the people but with the governing parties that use religion for profit/war and personal gain. And forgive me if I offended by calling followers sheep. I'm geussing there's prob a thread on this all ready so sorry again

I don't come across very many people who will openly admit that they do not believe in an afterlife, so I thought I would ask your thoughts on my posts here which I, unfortunately have not been able to get a single response from ANY athiests as of yet
I will answer!! About the afterlife..
Ask yourself: What was I doing one hundred, one thousand, one million years ago.
You've (we) have been dead already, since the beginning of time.
We've been dead (or a part of the universe) longer, far longer than we have been alive.
Basically...(imo) The afterlife is us becoming one with the heavens, if that makes it easier for you to comprehend.
No worries, death doesn't hurt, I remember that much
That's not shallow or un-imaginative (imo) It's actually spectacular.
