This submission is nearly too ignorant and disjointed to even respond to but I have a bit of time and figured some people might be amused by his general tone and semi-incoherent ramblings.
Good thing that “God” apparently has no need for me since I obviously have absolutely no need for the hypothesis of god. Really we can talk in the theoretical all you like but in the end it is nothing more than an idea. A vile idea. Glad to know that I am of no worth to an idea I find to be generally worthless and unintelligible. Personally I have no problem with cremation though, although I think I’d rather have my body go to a more noble purpose like scientific research and organ donation. If I’m burned when I die I won’t be around to care.
My goal is not to increase confusion in the world, quite the opposite as should be clear. My goal is to dispel religious delusion, which it seems you are quite the victim of. In that way I feel sorry for you. In other ways I feel as if you make yourself the victim by willingly embracing such nonsense and idiocy. I feel sorry for those that are a victim of religion, but I don’t feel sorry for those that look to perpetuate that victimization and visit it upon others. My goal is to help bring clarity, truth, reason, and honestly to as many people as I possibly can.
Your particular view of “God” also seems very confusing. If he did not want to be found why would he have sent a messenger in Jesus Christ if that is what you truly believe happened? Why would the bible say that they want all people to come to “God”? Wouldn’t it be absolutely cruel of some god to punish people for eternity for not accepting him yet not make any effort to be known by people?
No one finds god. End of story. People find comforting delusion, they find a sense of community that inspires them, they find a group of people that evokes positive emotions and a sense of well being. Yet no one ever “finds god” because it is impossible to find something that only exists as an idea. You haven’t found god any more than I have, it’s just that you’ve convinced yourself that you have because of your ego and solipsism.
Despite your apocalyptic wishes god, Jesus, or whoever are not returning to earth. There will be no biblical doomsday, there will be no kneeling. I am not a slave and refuse to be talked to as if I shall some day be one. I am also not a sinner. I am a human being who lives his life to the best of his ability. I have no reason to feel shame for that, I have no reason to feel as if I should be a sniveling worm writhing before some ethereal being who supposedly doesn’t have the common courtesy to prove he exists. You may want to be a slave, you may feel unworthy of life, you may feel as if you are a dirty sinner, but I will not allow you to force those views on to me.
I feel no shame for being human even though I may often feel shame for what humans do. I will not allow anyone, such as yourself, to attempt to make me feel shameful for being human. I only hold any amount of duty to myself and to my family, they are the only ones I will ever be accountable for. I have nothing to repent for, and never will disavow the things I say and how I truly feel. So sorry if your frail delusion is hampered by my rejection of it, but not really. It’s just too bad that when we die it is all over so I’ll never get the chance to say “I told you so”.

There is no heresy or no philosophy which is so abhorrent to the church as a human being.

We atheists possess “salvation” not because we are released from a sentence, but because we don’t deserve the punishment in the first place. We have committed no “sin.”
Sin is a religious concept, and in some religions, salvation is the deliverance from the “wages of sin”—death, or eternal punishment. Sin has been defined as “missing the mark” of God’s expectations or holiness, or “offending God,” so it follows that since there is no god, there is no sin, therefore no need for salvation. Only those who consider themselves “sinners” need this kind of “salvation.” It is a religious solution to a religious problem.
We atheists might ask: how much respect should we have for a doctor who cuts you with a knife in order to sell you a bandage?
If salvation is the cure, then atheism is the prevention.

This reminds me a lot of the Emo Phillips quote, “When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realized that the Lord doesn’t work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.”
