    Assume you were a God. Wouldn't you rather see people using their time doing good things to each other instead of hearing them repeat the same sentences everyday?

    Stop pushing your values onto other people/deities. God is his own person!

    It's not a sin to allow people to think for themselves.

    One cannot know God's desires. I'm pretty sure that's called blasphemy or something, which happens to be illegal in my state.
    “Some people will tell you that slow is good – but I’m here to tell you that fast is better. I’ve always believed this, in spite of the trouble it’s caused me. Being shot out of a cannon will always be better than being squeezed out of a tube. That is why God made fast motorcycles, Bubba…”

    @Peguy: There is protest atheism - people who believe that if God or any deity existed, then they are likely to be evil and so should not be worshipped. Or something like that. It's hard to find very much on it though.

    That's what Hitchens called "anti-theism."

    99.9% of Atheists are also agnostic which is an independent category compatible with belief and non belief

    The long title would be Agnostic-Atheists

    But atheists just shorten it to Atheist for obvious reasons

    Atheism as a term by itself isn't inherently arrogant anyway though, it simple means that you do not believe in God which refers to your belief not your knowledge. Ie. You can not believe in fairies but you don't KNOW for sure if they exist.

    The fairies thing is actually something Dawkins refers to in which he says that he is Agnostic to God to the same degree that he is agnostic to fairies.

    This is why I believe in God. Being an atheist leaves a lot of questions about where the world came from and why certain things happen that I wouldn't want to answer. Believing in God is simple and I find it very fulfilling too. I think Richard Dawkins has dug himself into a nice little theological hole.
