One day I realized just why religious people, or that fraction of “Believers” hate atheists, is that they are literally scared of us.
They are simply afraid that their beliefs will be shown to be false.
And with that, the made up afterlife will not be there for them.
There is no great beyond.
There isn’t a “higher order” or that they are the “Chosen” of the all mighty.
Their lives are, at least in their eyes, limited, or pointless.
Instead of looking at life as something to be enjoyed, they look upon it as drudgery.
To live your life hoping that when you die, it will all be better, and in a better place.
Seems to me they’d be happier believing in the Wheel of Life.
