If it helps you be the best person you can be, if it makes you comfortable, if it makes you responcible, then, neither thinking nor feeling is better than the other.
Though, that being said, one shouldn't be a replacement for the other.
more "athiests" could do with some feeling.

Really , renegade ? I have no problem with theists believing whatever delusional BS they wish . The problem arises when they start ( and they always do ) trying to impose their beliefs on others through legislation and proselytizing . I have a HUGE problem with that , and will fight against it . Always .

Again, I am just trying to have a nice day!

Ray, I'm not quite sure what it is that you are referring to. We have people on the non belief side who also try and impose their beliefs. And challenge what people believe.
It's not about what we think. But how we think. And how we understand the other side. Understanding makes progress. Not fact alone.
Be kind to yourself and everyone around you.

Renegade, you make it appear as if atheism and theism are both equally valid worldviews . Are you serious ? This has absolutely nothing to do with "kindness" , or any other touchy feely , zen BS . It has to do with a worldview based on empirical evidence and subject to falsification , versus a worldview based on unfalsifiable delusions , and in which unbelievers are condemned to eternal torture , and therefore any atrocity is allowable and praiseworthy . Atheists don't try to impose their beliefs on anyone , we merely attempt to bring truth to the gullible .

Ray, you seem smart. But I find it interesting to see you getting a little upset over what people you don't even know, think of you. And why are you worried about going to hell, if it doesn't exist?

Why in the world would you misconstrue what I stated theists believe , and project it onto my own belief ? I'll rephrase it in a more concrete fashion for you , renegade . Theists , monotheists , specifically , believe that nonbelievers will burn in hell for eternity . Because of that , they see unbelievers as less deserving of human rights , and even less than human . They can then excuse any repulsive act or atrocity , as history has repeatedly shown . I am also not angry , nor do I care what anyone else thinks of me . My opinions and beliefs are enough for me .

Ray, I'm glad to see that your own beliefs are good enough for you. Great. FANTASTIC! Though, I know that believers with think I'm going to hell too... So? They don't think We should have rights. But we do. And there's nothing they can do about that.
History has shown people to do bad things. But the future gives us hope and room for amazing things to happen and for history to not be repeated. I don't want to debate with you Ray. But if you want to chat. I'm always open and interested in anything you have to say. :)
