Quote# 3452

Atheists are comfy because they don't have a higher being to answer to, and do not have to sacrifice anything that God has asked of them, so atheism is the 'easy' way out. That is until it's time for judgement.

Atheists aren't immune to the need to make moral/ethical choices and deal with the consequences of their decisions HERE and NOW. That's a much bigger and more substantial incentive to deal right with people than any hypothetical judge in a hypothetical afterlife!

\"Atheists are comfy because they don't have a higher being to answer to...\"

That very much depends whether my Dad's on a step-ladder or not.

None of us have a \"higher power\" to answer to. The difference between us and you is we realize that.

I don't understand why these people think atheism is the easy way out.

Christianity (as practiced by fundies): God will forgive me no matter how bad I fuck up. He'll set things right.

Atheism: If we fuck up, it's up to us to fix it.

The only comfort to be had in atheism is that it's so much easier to avoid cognitive dissonance.

I guess having a loving and caring magical big brother who smites all the bad guys is SO MUCH TOUGHER than being a bad old atheist who has to deal with life alone or with the help of (gasp) OTHER PEOPLE!

"That is until it's time for judgement."

Which your holy book says is God's pleasure, not yours. So (from my POV) I'll be comfy to my dying day, and cease to be after it.

And I don't have to spend my life sucking up to the kind of psychopath most fundies seem to think is running things (i.e. their kind of psychopath). Bonus!

Hey, I also don't have to feel perpetually guilty for having perfectly natural urges. Double bonus!

And I get to lie in on Sunday mornings. Triple bonus! (Although, to be fair, the same is true of the Anglican Church.)

Atheists are comfy

And yet loads of fundies like you tend to assert that the notion of living in an uncaring universe with no overall authority and no existence beyond death absolutely terrifies them, which is of course why they choose the relative comfort of religious delusion. Care to explain this little contradiction?

It's all the consequence free sex. It makes us relaxed.

Until it's time for judgement?

So in the end YOU're the ones taking the easy way out?

Hypocrite!

No, letting other people tell you what to believe is the easy way out, thinking for yourself and finding your own purpose and moral system is hard.

We're not the comfy ones; we have no-one to confess our sins to and have them washed away. We have to take responsibility for our actions here and now, act morally and ethically every single moment, as we must deal with the consequences in THIS life, which does definitely exist.

Sounds like you full of envy for atheists, Badfish. Isn't envy a sin?
