Yes, because Christians are making the claim that there is a god despite not having any evidence whatsoever to prove there is one. If you believe there is a god, you have to prove it. Until you can prove it, nobody else has any obligation to believe you.present solid evidence, that the natural world is all there is. As long as you do not have any, nobody else has either obligation to believe you. So far, not ONE strong atheis has been able to present convincing positive atheist arguments, which make a compelling case for strong atheism.
One piece of evidence that the natural world is all there is: people who behave as if there are gods have exactly the same lives as people who behave as if the natural world is all there is (athiests). Belief in gods has zero effect on anything measurable. If believing in god made a difference, that difference should show up somewhere. It doesn't.
Planes don't drop out of the sky based on the religion of the passengers or pilot. Floods, earthquakes and tornadoes happen based on natural world conditions, not on how strongly people practice their faith.
The "miracles" that supposedly happen to god-believers also happen to atheists. Atheists and believers alike recover from cancer, escape dangerous criminals, survive car accidents, come back safely from war, win the lotto, give birth under difficult circumstances, find love, get job promotions, live to be 100.
Religious people like to tell atheists that life without god leads to rampant crime, violence, family breakup, misbehavior of every kind, jails full of evil doers. If this was the case, Japan should be the crime and violence capital of the world, since it is almost completely free of god-belief. In fact, when people actually do research on the effects of religious belief on societies, they find the opposite of what religious people have always told us.
The more heavily a society relies on religious belief, the higher all the bad indicators are--more crime, more poverty, more violence, higher prison populations, more unemployment, more divorce, more inequality, worse pollution.
The places with the least violent crime, safest streets, fewest prisoners, best health care, highest education levels, lowest divorce and teen pregnancy rates, better status for women, etc. are the countries and states with the lowest rates of religious belief and participation. Like Japan, and Scandinavian countries.
Religious people sometimes respond by saying that just because people claim to believe in god does not mean they really practice their faith. People say on the survey that they are Christians or whatever, then they go on looking at child porn, beating up gay people and using meth. Maybe.
But why would the rates of bad behavior be lower among people who say they are not religious
? Could it be that people who claim to be atheists are behaving better than people who say they believe in god?
Maybe it just so happens that policies based on rational evaluation of problems and solutions
create better environments for people than relying on faith and prayer to solve social problems....
So, if there is a supernatural force out there somewhere, it has no effect whatsoever on anything--as far as we can tell. The entire universe functions as if there is no god--as far as we can tell. Therefore, it may as well not exist.
