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
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.
Not at all. It is asking why, if I am going to be dead in a week, why go to work today? If atheists are right, the end of everything is the end of everything; at that time nothing we have done will make a difference
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
An atheist believes that a hospital should be built instead of a church. An atheist believes that a deed must be done instead of a prayer said. An atheist strives for involvement in life and not escape into death. He wants disease conquered, poverty banished, war eliminated.
