    With ironic respect. Should we thank God that religionists are such hypocrites?

    The religions that offer a supernatural God are basically authoritarian religions with tyrannical Gods.

    They are quite divisive and if Christians and Muslims do not do things just right, they get to burn forever in in a purposeless hell. Yahweh and Allah are mean demiurges.

    In terms of following their religions to the letter, I see both Christians and Muslims as being quite hypocritical and I thank all the Gods for that.

    If Christians and Muslims did live by the barbaric ideals their religions and Gods wanted, the inquisitions and jihads would force the rest of us to eliminate those fouls religions for reasons of self-defence.

    Let us thank all the good Gods that Christians and Muslims do not practice their religions and are such hypocrites. Let us thank all the Gods that Christians and Muslims are moral enough to be hypocrites and only give lip service to their vile religious ideologies and imaginary Gods.

    How many Christians are hypocrites? This link says the vast majority right at the beginning of the link, and I would say that the same number applies to Muslims even though their mosque attendance is higher than the Christian one due to culture more than religion.

    It would be good for you to thank God period.

    It has a practical application, like forgiving and confessing. Basically being religious offers a functional advantage that atheism can't match.

    Atheism not only creates an intellectual dead end it creates a moral wasteland too.

    I'll take the religious over the militant irreligious any day and twice on Sunday.

    It's religionists' hypocrisy that provides further proof there is no 'god' as perceived by theists.

    No. It is your expectation of goodness that proves God does exist. :lol:
