Why do atheists hate that i believe in life after Death?

Updated on August 1, 2010

I believe in Life after Death

Why do athiests become enraged at my view of life after death?

I hear a few people who call themselves athiests complain and at times become infuriated when Christians defend their beliefs. I am not sure why they would become so enraged, it is baffeling, let me explain.
If, as athiests claim, there is no life after death, then why should it matter if I believe there is (life after death). Why should it matter, if I am wrong but go through life believing what I do and then die and all is over. What would it matter, especially to the athiests. The only reason I can see why they become angry at my belief is because they themselves are not sure and by arguoing with me and becoming totaly enraged at the mere thought of an after life is because they question and are trying to convince themselves and hope the more they deny thet tuth that their point of view will become truth. Sounds confusing?
Now let me put it this way, An athiest denies the truth of an after life, they go through life being decieved by satan, I have the right now to become upset as I do not want to see anyone go to hell. My belief is that their is an after life, so i try to explain this truth to the athiests. I have a right to become angry at Satan for decieving people. However, an athiest with no belief in an after life should not become angry at my point of view as they believe when it is over, it is over. They should just let me go about my life. Should they not, if their is nothing once one dies?

      When you come to the realization that there is a God who is the creator of the universe and all that is in it, it is easy to understand athieists' reaction to a belief in life after death...after all, if true they know then it is likely true they will be spending eternity in hell when they die and they would rather believe there is nothing after death than to face the prospect that they are living a lie. The absurdity of it all is that their very existence is proof of the creator they deny...The Bible explains this as it explains all spiritual things we need to know.

      "And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper." Romans 1:28

      j grates--> I disagree, my experience with people who believe there is no life after death actually live without hope and live in a way that they do not care about themselves,about others and about earth. However, people who know that life after death is real and that God is real live fuller live and more constructive live, as well as happier and more loving. Now this is my experience with those whom I have spoken with and counseled, people from both sides of the fence. That being said, people are people and some do live to the contrary of what I said, but those are very few.

      The issue is how the widespread belief that there is life after death negatively impacts society. It leads to people making decisions about their life based on the misconception that they will live on after death or based on arbitrary rules created by some archaic religious organization. If people realized this life is all they have they may choose more constructive lives. Ones that seek to maximize human happiness for the present and future here on Earth.

      Bruce,

      I am not trying to change people. However when they come up to me and make fun of my beliefs and/or try to change my views i feel I would have the right to tell them why I believ what I do. I am sure there are some athiests who are polite and leave others beliefs alone. I was just wondering why some become so enraged at my views and why they feel so strong that they have to try and comvince me that my views are wrong (I believe that God does exsist) I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but if one were to come up to me and bring it up i would have to speak what I believe to be the truth, in a polite and respectful manner.

      Anyhow, thank you for your post. Have a great day.

      Hey Tom

      What others say and think or whether they explode is no reflection on you. I believe something different from you and wouldn't spend 2 seconds trying to change you - - unless you felt you had the right to tell me what to believe, to stand in my path.

      Atheism - The belief that there was nothing and nothing happened to nothing and then nothing magically exploded for no reason, creating everything and then a bunch of everything magically rearranged itself for no reason what so ever into self-replicating bits which then turned into dinosaurs. ~Makes perfect sense.~

      @ Deaconess-->

      They are decieved by Satan. Satan lies by telling the athiests that their is no God or life after death.

      Maybe because you accuse them of being deceived by Satan.
