In my opinion, even though some believe God is nonsense, is there any "risk" involved in theism?

What makes you think we don't think about god/gods? We are debating with believers constantly, and its continually put in front of us. We just don't believe in a god.
Just because you think does not mean others do. Not every person in a specific group is exactly the same.
No offense to anyone, but it is the truth

You are correct; and yet, in the scheme of things, your 100 year life span will most certainly be completely forgotten in, at most, about 1000 years. If there is a God, however, your soul will exist perpetually.
That depends on whether or not a particular god claim includes Assn afterlife or the concept of a soul at all if that god claim is actually discovered to be true.
I don't care if I'm forgotten eventually. I'm going to be gone.
So you feel your life has no purpose in the long run, except possibly continuing the human race through procreation?
My purpose is to exist, do good for the sake of doing good, loving my family and my life and doing what I can in the here and now to make a difference. What happens after I'm dead and gone won't matter.
But what happens after you are dead and gone will matter, just not necessarily to you.
It will matter to those I leave behind, and I will do my best to leave this world better than I found it. What future generations do with it is their decision to make.
Wow you are a smart and intellectual person.
