    No. Atheists don't believe there's a God, no matter how good or bad his image might be. There simply isn't a way to make religion good for an atheist.

      Kiss and Tales, you have never ever provided any proof. What you have done, however, is to try to persuade atheists to accept blind faith as proof. And what does this statement about getting rid of doctors have to do with anything? Straw man!

    Atheists aren't going to rebel against an entity they don't believe in. You are trying to impose your religious concept on a belief system that doesn't match up with yours.

    And what is it that you classify as a "bad religion"? Does that entail any that are excluded from the three majority: Christian, Jewish, or Muslim?

    Please don't mistake followers that misconstrue their religion to justify their bigotry.

      DVH - you have a point! Nearly half the world practices a non-Abrahamic religion. Some believe in a god, some many gods, some none. Some allow for followers to choose regarding such beliefs. Judging by their countries, all are equally valid.

    I'm not rebelling against anything.  I just don't believe in God.  I think God is a perfectly lovely idea, it's just not something I see as being a reality.  Simple.

    Only an Atheist can say why they are .
    Because there are those who just do not believe in a higher entity,
    When there are those that believe but
    Are really in a mental battle against him.
    So we have many reasons,  a new one I observed was that people may not want to accept the God of scriptures and Scrolls,  but they will accept other deities as god.
    But to answer your question yes religion has done a lot of damage to potential followers of God,
    But the bible assures us not one sheep will be lost.
    So from our standpoint as imperfect humans we can not read hearts but the Father can.

    Many atheists grow up with a positive view of religion. Whether it's strong family ties, or charitable organizations that operate out of a church. Yet, they are still atheists. Religion used negatively can certainly push people towards atheism, but it's not the only reason they arrive there, and it certainly isn't the reason they stay there.

    "Rebelling?" No. To rebel against something implies that that something (in this case, religion) has authority over your life. I identify as Agnostic, with the opinion of atheism, and it's more a matter of having weighed the evidence and found religion to be unworthy of my time and effort. That is, the various world religions, including yours, Abdus Salaam, all have their holes and inconsistencies. No religion is 100% true about what it says about itself. Those with logically-inclined minds spot the errors of religion more easily than others I suppose.

    Spirituality has many facets, and it's a mistake to think one needs religion to be spiritual. I agree that the "church" (I assume you mean Christian) has done much to discredit itself, as has your own religion of Islam. Neither relgion can pass the tests of logic and reason, and both share many of the same glaring problems.

    " By disbelieving in God, you have lost something; sanity."
    Actually it is the other way around. Believing in imaginary entities suggests a psychotic condition called delusion. Believers have absolutely no evidence for the existence of their Gods except the writings of unknown ancient authors. The same evidence exists for Spiderman.
    And...as an atheist, I do not rebel against this God. I am against ignorance, and if people attempt to insult my intelligence with nonsensical and unprovable claims, then I reject it as the rubbish it is.  I stick with logic.

    At first, I dont know what Atheist is then I searched about it.
    "Are atheists rebelling against 'bad religion' because God's image has been tarnished by the church?" My answer is 80 percent no and 20 percent yes (if it is even allowed). In my perspective, every person's experiences are what made them what they are now. In my country and religion today, I say that they are making more effort to make many believe in God's words and doings.And recently, the Pope graced us with his presence. In a country that is majority a catholic, the visiting of the Papa binds us more. So that's why it is 80 percent and the 20 percent, It is just because of many controversies that the church is accused. Like many priests have started their own families (even if it is I dont know--prohibited?) and some other issues that is not actually proven truth.

    What atheist and "believers" fail to believe is Scripture!  God "looks at the heart" (I Samuel 16:7) while "man" looks at man's actions!  Little do they know that the Scriptures say "We were once babes in Christ"  and when babes or remain babes - LAZY! 

    I Peter 2:2 "As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the WORD, that ye may GROW by it."  Therefore, one's "actions" depends on the "level of "FAITH" they have acquired by STUDYING the Word of God and not being complacent!   If we STUDY (II Timothy 2:15) His Word, believing, praying for revelation, we will GROW or CHANGE!  II Corinthians 3:18 says that we are "changed from GLORY to GLORY...as by the Spirit of the Lord." 

    Consequently, when atheists "see" Christians sinning, they assume they are hypocrites as do "Believers!"  But always remember I Samuel 16:7 "God looks at the heart!"  {paraphrasing}!  However, it would behoove "Believers" to STUDY for GROWTH by "HUMBLING ONESELF" (I Chronicles 7:14) and allowing the Holy Spirit to "...TURN US FROM OUR WICKED WAYS..."   

    Only GOD knows where an individual's "FAITH" level is concerning their "BELIEF" in Him!  This SPIRITUAL journey is as in school; PK-1 to PhD!  Although PK-1 one believes there is a God, he has not yet exercised "Faith" which is acquired by STUDYING and BELIEVING "ALL" of His Word to "see" the POWER of God in His entirety!     

    BTW:  Love your saying!

    I did rebel against Christianity in my late teens, but realized I was wrong and returned to the church.  When people rebel, they usually throw out the good with the bad.  That's what I did; when I paid the price, I saw the error of my ways.
    My recent change to agnosticism comes from post traumatic stress disorder from inadvertently joining a cult and putting my life in danger.  Looking back, I've noticed way too many parallels between basic cult practices and Christianity - the main ones being that you don't question what you're taught, you're strongly discouraged from associating with people who think differently from you, and you're misled into believing you're the only one with Absolute Truth and one of the few with the privilege of going to heaven.
    I find it strange that an omnipotent God not only allows atrocities to happen, but shows less concern for His reputation than a common celebrity.  If I ran my home the way He rules the world, I'd be an unfit parent. Other issues have led me to conclude He could be merely a human speculation - and it makes no sense to rebel against something that may not exist.
