    Is that saying that all who choose not to believe in God are placating themselves, or that some are?

    I think that's what he's suggesting. It's easier to comes to terms with 'there is no God' than to come to terms with 'we are not perfect, but generally vile, sinful creatures'.

    I think most "non-believers" have heard the believer's side.

    Deep, down inside, they know there is a God. And they know they shouldn't be doing what they are doing, because God wouldn't approve.

    So..instead of trying to justify what they do, they just say..."Well, there is no God so I don't have to worry."

    I mean...who wants to admit they're wrong?

    So you are of the opinion that all atheists live their life without believing in God because of convenience?

    Who's to say ALL atheists live "not right" lifestyles? Pretty judgemental wouldn't you say? What happened to discernment?

    Nevermind. It looks like you posted it in nearly every thread you've posted in today. Carry on.
