Oh, jeez. What is it with you people?
Atheism (the REAL definition) - A belief centered around a person not believing in a God or "blind faith". That's it. This doesn't mean they are immoral, pessimistic, evil, Christ-haters, Christian-haters, gamblers, racist, slutty, Bible-destroyers, demons, ignorant or whatever.
Just because they have different beliefs than some doesn't make them wrong OR right. Nobody in this world is wrong OR right about their religion or lack thereof, because there is no proof for ANY of it. People believe what they believe, end of story.
Now, SOME atheists may be evil and argumentative as fuck, but that doesn't mean they all are. And it doesn't mean that some don't like the IDEA of an afterlife, they just can't comprehend that there would be one. This is just how their brain works. To those who believe, God created us all, right? He created those who would follow a religion that's been around since people believed the sun rotated around the earth, and he created those who wouldn't believe in such an idea.
Also, atheists ARE real, and their belief isn't necessarily a phase, or coming from angsty teenagers. The most optimistic, intelligent and helpful adult I know happens to be an atheist.
I just think you Bible-thumpers are being silly and childish. If people want to believe in God, or don't want to believe in God, it's really nobody else's buisiness.
Atheist one: I love life! I may have to die someday and afterlife seems unlikely to me, but I have come to terms with that and I'm determined to enjoy the time I have left.
Atheist two: I hate Christians, grr. They are incorrect and I will get constipated if I don't correct every theist I see. I burn Bibles in my front lawn and I point and laugh at nuns.
Atheist three: I'm just an average Joe. I don't care if you believe in atheism or theism, I'm just living my life.
