    Believing in no god to the Atheism is as good as believing in many gods to Paganism, both of which are to the confusions, which is but the two sides of the same coin. Where to the former scriptures states "Only a fool says there is no god" whereas to the latter are stated "Abominations unto God"

    I would not be too optimistic about this. The reality is that there are many who profess a belief in God but whose lives are athiest in pratice. The U.S. claims to be a "nation under God", but our laws and our culture (I include American Christian attitudes in this) are athiest in reality. Actions speak louder than words. At least professed athiests has the courage to be honest about it.

    Let us face it. God is everywhere...even by atheists. Atheists may vehemently shout there's no God and that all religious are foolish but I think honestly they are wrangling with the existence of God internally...spiritual warfare.
    Atheism makes no sense. Its argument cannot be logically followed to its conclusion.

    Faith is a subjective and a collective experience in community with others and that is what life is all about. Christianity proclaims that this experience is Holy and a grace from God. Atheism is a turning into oneself,where the only real reality is relative to one's own personal experience,in that way an individual's own experience is the only truly valid encounter in a life. "Some are luckier than others"! Atheism is selfish,where faith encourages selflessness and self giving to others. Athiests ultimately for these reasons can not truly be happy because they are spiritually challenged.
