You forget your following the teachings of christ, from the man made bible that is a collaboration of the religions before it. So your discriminating off of basically something that is made up.
All christians including my family just ignore the facts, you all just are ignorant to the truth i tell my family at every get together once we have a few drinks down. The bible isnt the truth, its a story made up by men, who had these secrete meetings with the so called god. Its less than 4thousands years old, were missing jesus christ life 13-30? wtf? the scriptures dont match.... Its a made up story.
You really think god would let people starve, children die everyday because they are mal nutritioned and have no food? You really think life is gods will so he is responsible for killing everyone that dies, no. We are, people with gods kill people.
I hear people everyday say oh thank god i have a job a roof over a my head blah blah. Degrading themselves and depriving themselves of self worth. Take some credit for the work you have done, sitting and praying will never do anything.
I forgot to talk about abortions, i mean who is to say they just wanted to go kill the fetus? There are women who get raped, drugged, and accidents happen pills and condoms are not 100%. If you dont have a job, or the father you want to raise this child into poverty? please dont act like its just murder, preventing a poverty struck and family depraved life is better than putting an innocent child through that.
Children who are raised in poverty or missing parents are the most likely to not succeed in life, i grew up the same way and it was hard, faith doesnt put food on the table trust me.
If people simply disregarded the whole afterlife hypothesis which is bs, we would have people living life the way they are supposed to be living it. Enjoying everyday and not coasting along thinking hey ill be in heaven when i die this lifes just temporary. No one can prove an afterlife so you might as well make the best of this one. This is all we have.

Are you saying that a child should be born to a couple who don't love each other, and who probably can't afford to look after a small child? Is it really in the best interest of that small child to be brought into the world, disadvantaged from the second it becomes too late to have an abortion?
Then theres the argument is it really murder, when does it become a "human"? Straight away when its only two small microscopic cells that randomly happened to collide? Or when it starts to develop the various organs and features that make us human?
Damn you beat me as i was editing my reply ! lol
If we are talking murder of cells what about humans killing animals? We are all murders, and all atheists, some of us just take our atheist life one god further.
