Do believers actually hate the idea that we don't believe in a God?


And can still be perfectly happy, reasonable, moral, good people? Not angry or immoral as we are often made out to be. Seeing as it was asked of us non-believers if we hated the idea of a God, it's time for believers to be asked..

    God created every part of us. It is the Id that acts on animal instincts not the Ego

    Ego is a person's sense of self-esteem, and needed to love ourselves which we are supposed to do, so we can love others LOL

    Dano - I agree - more understanding - which comes through knowledge. I realise that people share their faith, because it makes them happy, and who wouldn't want to make another happy - but it's that we non-believers ARE happy...just the way we are.

    Thanks for your answer Calybana. I used the term hate, as this was a follow up question to one asked by another using that term. But I agreed it may be too strong a term, much as i did with the other question!

    Thanks for your comment. I do believe it depends on the person - on either side of the God arguement.

    Actually, celafoe, for some people it is different. The more I learn about the origins of the Bible and Christianity, the more I'm glad that I left it. If you were honest in historical research, you would find the same. Knowledge can bring peace.

    Thanks for your answer Deborah. I'm glad you don't lose sleep - me neither (but vice versa). It's more that people assume hatred/dislike, because they don't understand how one can be happy with or without God...but it's possible both ways

    So do some believers, Lybrah, whether they realise it or not but we don't generalise all believers as angry.

    Why sad? We are happy, well adjusted people. Why feel sad 4 some1 who is happy? It wld b like me feeling sad 4 u bcus yr faith makes u happy
