Do we prevent somebody being hurt by superstition or faith by rejecting and challenging those things? 

Is it mistaken to support organised religion in membership or donations?

If people do good because they are human, not because God prompts them then is it right to risk giving God any credit when they alone own their good?

 


COMPARISON - BELIEVER AND ATHEIST

Believer
I have done my best to stop what makes me unhappy. I am suffering terribly. I accept this as unavoidable. I will not be angry about it for the anger will only make me feel worse.

Atheist
I have done my best to stop what makes me unhappy. I am suffering terribly. I accept this as unavoidable. I will not be angry about it for the anger will only make me feel worse.

In fact the words are the same but the believer is messing with words. It is not unavoidable if there is a God thus anger would be appropriate if not against God then against how his good work the universe has been ruined and now I am suffering over it.

Atheism then should in principle and in practice show better compassion than belief in a higher power of any kind who can help.
