nelsona says The question DOES NOT ask which one you think is real, it DOES ask which one you would rather have real. Also, sorry for kinda bad pics. :/

    Christianity is NOT "good is rewarded and evil is punished." It's "Doesn't matter if you're good or evil, you'll be rewarded so long as you submit to God."

    hold up. not every atheist believes you die and nothing happens. Atheism is the belief that there is no God, there's a difference.

    Not quite, it's the lack of belief in any gods.

    The difference is subtle but important. Lack of belief is different to belief in the negative. There is a distinction there, for example all babies are atheists in that they lack belief in gods - a baby is too young to grasp the concept of a god let alone believe there are or aren't any.

    No, no it isnt. You cant classify babies in any religion because like you said they have no ability to grasp anything and therefore cant decide on what religious belief they follow. Lack of belief and belief in the negative are the same in that neither believe, that is really all it comes down to, even though they are still just the exact same thing worded differently.

    Ugh, atheism isn't a religion. It's not a belief, it's the LACK OF BELIEF. And no they're not the same thing worded differently. I just f*ckin' explained why not. "Believing there is no god" is actively believing something, "Not believing in any gods" is not actively believing. To claim "There aren't any gods" is a positive statement. Learn to f*cking read before you post.

    Nobody said atheism was a religion. The lack of belief and not believing in something is CLEARLY the same thing worded differently. The words "lack" means "absent" or not there. Not there meaning that you do not believe since you do not have that belief. You did not explain why not all you said was that "lack of belief" and "not believing" have different connotations. "Actively believing something" and "not actively believing something" is you openly admitting they are the same thing worded differently, just because they have different connotations does not mean their definitions are different. Again you keep repeating yourself in saying the connotations are different. Learn the difference between "definition" and "connotation" before you post you juvenile.

    Dumbass, you didn't say that "Atheism is not believing..." you said "Atheism is the belief that there is no God". I never once said that lack of belief and not believing were different, prick, I said that believing there is no god and lacking belief in a god were different. Stupid cunt, learn to read. You claimed atheism was BELIEVING that there is no god, I corrected you and pointed out that atheism is the LACK OF BELIEF. Your definition of atheism was wrong, and they're not the same f*ckin' thing.

    "not believing" and "the belief that there is no" is the exact same thing. So, yes you did say that "not believing and the "lack of belief" were different. You juvenile, you seriously should learn the definitions of things before you go claiming to know them. I have been telling you that "believing there is no" and "lacking belief" is the exact same thing just worded differently, you didnt correct anything. They are the same thing, i didnt define atheism either i just said that what the author says atheists believe is not true in every case.

    "Atheism is the belief that there is no God," You did f*cking define atheism. Right there, see? And you got it wrong. They are not the f*cking same. "Atheism is the belief that there is no God," is a positive belief, it's an active belief against gods and requires evidence to back it up. Not believing in a god is different because it's the LACK OF BELIEF IN GODS not a POSITIVE BELIEF AGAINST GODS. How f*cking stupid are you to not see the difference?

    That is not defining atheism, that is saying what atheists believe which is not a definition, or at least not a whole one. Yeah i know what i said, but again you being unable to grasp definitions would not know what one actually looks like. I didnt get it wrong, you didnt get it wrong, because we are both saying the same thing. They are exactly the same. Again going back to connotations, you are not proving your point, you are just saying the feeling that statement invokes in you. There is no such thing as a "positive belief against gods" that is inherently negative. How naive are you to not see that they are the same thing?

    Seriously? You still don't get it? You genuinely can't tell the difference between believing something does not exist and lacking belief in something? Is it really that difficult for you? If you believe there are no gods then you're actively believing that there are no gods. It's a belief in and of itself - the BELIEF that there are no gods, it's a positive belief. By your reasoning someone who hasn't even heard the concept of a god is not an atheist. They can't hold the belief that there are no gods because they don't even know what a god is, so according to you they wouldn't be an atheist?

    Ugh. YOU still dont get it. You cant tell that they are absolutely the exact same thing. Is it really that difficult for you? If you believe there are no gods, then thats it, you dont believe there are any goods period, its not active or inactive. It can only be positive or negative in the eyes of the person, connotations are subjective. Someone who hasnt heard the concept of a god can be an atheist yes, but that would be their decision which they have been given the chance to make, so they would be a "fake atheist" if you will.

    Lack of belief - Belief in the subject is absent. "Believing there is no..." - actively denying the subject.

    That's not the way Christianity is. When you die, you go to heaven if you're saved (even if you're evil) and go to hell if you're not (even if you're good).

    The first one is too extreme. Everyone would go to hell, even people who think they're not "sinners."

    Not necessarily, you go to hell if you've committed mortal sins (as opposed to venial sins) and have no intentions of repenting.

    Depends what heaven is like. I mean, it would be pretty awesome doing EVERYTHING you ever wanted to do, just imagine you being on a plane and *FOFF* heaven creates the scene, or make heaven create an exact copy of earth and people on it. You would be a god!
