Atheists don't believe in any form of god. Yet they believe that their football team, their neighborhood, their families and all their other delusions are real.

I don't believe that anything is real, meaning that nothing whatever exists outside of my mind's eye (my personal perceptions), especially you.

Do not think that because I seem to have deliberately and precisely arranged the pixels on my monitor to form these "words", that I believe that my monitor actually exists, because I'm sure that it doesn't. This in no way bothers me.

I'll also arrange some other pixels for the edification of you "others": http://www.davidhume.org/

Atheists are lightweight punks.

Really, what difference would it make if I was somehow starkly confronted by a reality that there is no concrete reality?

What I tentatively regard as my personal reality keeps me busy, interested, often amused.

If nothing is really "real", what's the big deal? I'll never know for certain anyway...

It would be somewhat interesting to learn what you think your reality is like, but, since you're a phantasm, I can probably already imagine...

Atheists are lightweight punks.

One could actually argue that those who feel a need to believe in anything are the 'Lightweight Punks' of the situation and use their beliefs as a crutch for life, its mysteries and all its vagaries.  At least atheists have to courage to not believe in something you cannot see, cannot feel, is no tangible proof of.

We are here because we are here, why do we need to believe in anything?  Is anything real? Real is just a word (a play on the film The Matrix) many things are beyond normal human comprehension (Size of the universe for example) and many people just cannot accept that not understanding is something they must live with. There must be a reason, there must be a god, there must be a reason I do not understand.  To facilitate this misguided ideology they "believe"  instead of accepting the inescapable truth that we know so very little and are still learning.

Enjoy a glasss of wine and think about the Bills actually beating the Patriots this upcoming season, because if YOU believe surely...
