"I think you fear death and haven't come to terms with it. By telling yourself that there is another life to go, you don't feel so bad about the `I can never get that time back' part of this life."
And I think you fear hell and haven't come to terms with it. By telling yourself that `there is no hell,' you don't feel so bad about the `If God exists, then I'm probably going to hell' part of the afterlife.
"IMHO, pretending to be happy while being an atheist beats your present act. What? Yes. Can you honestly tell me religion isnt a similar type of act?"
"My happy religion, atheism, is better than your fearful religion, Christianity."
You're making the false assumption that I'm actually that afraid of God. For those who have accepted Christ into their hearts, they have nothing to fear from God. And your happiness is totally plastic. I've had friends who are people pleasers and they put on the same kind of show, but you can kinda tell it's fake. And how happy is it to believe you're going to be plant food? Besides, who wrote this line? "Positive proof that there really IS an afterlife and judgement would drive me insane. No way for you to understand this, but it is true. Not even to joke about. There could be nothing more terrifying."
If it's an act, it's not a very good one. I mostly pray while I'm by myself, and if I were so bent on acting like the rest of my congregation, I'd jump up and dance to those children's gospel songs like the rest of my congregation does, even though it's low on the maturity scale, and we have few kids in the congregation to begin with
