It almost seems like atheists don't want to believe in God. Do you just simply not want to believe in God because you don't want to give up your own free will?

So how many Atheist did she convince to give up their false hopes and beliefs and join her in her love of her doG?

Show of hands please.

And glad we are of it. :-)

@Belle:  Your example warms us all :)

Is THAT what that was? I thought it was heartburn from the chili I had for lunch --

So, I guess, yeah, Belle/Sarah/Jessica - what she said --

I thanked Haysoos, was that close enough?

Mentioning Sancho reminded me of Don Quixote de la Mancha, which reminded me of suits of armor, which made me wonder, "How did they go to the bathroom in those things?"

With great difficulties.  It actually involves partially disarmouring.  One learns very quickly to be sure to relieve yourself prior to armouring up.  It helps that we tend to get dehydrated, which leads to lower urination requirements.  Yes, I have worn (and actually currently own) armour in the context of combat.  :-)

Urination really wasn't my greatest concern.

The seed of doubt sometimes has a looooong germination period. Good Luck.

I'm late to the party as usual...

I used to believe in god, and went to Catholic school for a time.  The more I studied the bible, the more I realized that the god of the bible is a very poorly constructed myth, and that the Jesus myth is a poorly constructed amalgam of former gods and Jewish messianic belief.

Take time to read the bible from cover to cover, word for word.  It is a tome of scientific ignorance and moral savagery.  Never mind that there isn't a shred of evidence for the existence of gods, or a spiritual realm.  If the god of the bible actually did exist, he would be a petty, inconsistent, murderous tyrant that wouldn't be worth a shred of respect much less worship.

I expect that this question is badly formed. It should be of the form, 'Why do theists seem to need so little to believe in a god?' 

I expect that a similar question could be formed concerning magical claims, business scams, etc.

Why do christians ask for so little? Atheism is fact based, religion is superstition.
