I've plenty to look forward to, thank you. For instance, I look forwar to being actually, physically, in reality, immortal, at least to the point of my living as long as I want to live. Given technologies and the size of the Universe, I look forward to living for a very long time indeed.
I'm sorry, but, according your reasoning, anyone that doesn't believe in something shouldn't talk about their not believing in it.
Please kindly enlighten all the Christians that are talking about Atheists.
Please enlighten every and anyone talking about every and anyone else, because, be doing so, they're talking about something they don't believe in.
As I perceive it, you don't believe in Atheism, so, your entire thing is self defeating in the respect that you're basically saying you shouldn't be saying anything about something you're saying something about.

It is very hard to consider Hitler a Christian, especially when you read actual inquiries into his history. Fascinated by messianic ideology yes, Christian . . . . no.
Calling Hitler a practicing Christian is disingenuous.
The definition of atheism is somewhat unique in my experience. It is the only word I am aware of that exists to demonstrate that something else ... doesn't exist.
Athe-ism only exists as a term because of the propensity in English to make "-isms" out of everything.
There is no organized catechism, and no unifying dialogue. It is not a religion because it is not a belief -- it is the absence of a belief.
I didn't set out to "become an atheist." It happened after years of honest, rational consideration of the facts available to me. One day, instead of jumping through improbable semantic hoops, my mind just said "there is no God." Done and done.
To imply that there is a unified front of "atheists" who march in lockstep and all follow the same activities is utterly irrational in my opinion and is not borne out by any evidence. It is another "strawman" in a long line of politically/religiously motivated fallacies. In my opinion.

By that argument, you have no reason not to believe in unicorns, wizards and leprechauns.
how you PERSONALLY know staunch militaristic atheists
