If you spend your time and money making the world a better place, you will be a better person and won't be funding some preacher's new car.

I love Ricky...a bit too snarky for me sometimes, because I think people should believe in a god if that's what they need to believe in, but I've thought this very same thing all throughout my adult life.

Who creates a world which is so full of injustice & pain ?! ,, Atheism is not just about them not believing there is a god, but on the assumption that there is one, what kind of god is he ??  ~~ Stephen Fry

Yup, even if I am a commited non-theist and think the possibility of a omnipotent God is extremely unlikely, I love that the universe is still so full of secrets and our understanding of the meaning of life and the universe is so beautifully incomplete and open to philosophical wondering. Because of this I will never truly identify as an atheist except in polerised debate.

Cognitive Dissonance | "Sometimes people hold a core belief that is very strong. When they are presented with evidence that works against that belief, the new evidence cannot be accepted. It would create a feeling that is extremely uncomfortable, called cognitive dissonance. And because it is so important to protect the core belief, they will rationalize, ignore and even deny anything that doesn't fit in with the core belief." --Frantz Fanon
