Atheists are more likely to be depressed: conservapedia.org/atheism_and_depression.

Is it possible natural selection is biased against atheists?

Why do you keep posting these retarded flame baiting topics which I am willing to bet even you don't agree with the contents of.

You are bulproof are just as bad as each other.

This is the response of the defenders of Sparta to the Commander of the Roman Army: "If you are a god, you will not hurt those who have never injured you. If you are a man, advance - you will find men equal to yourself. And women.

I was given to believe clowns like you preach that your god gets things right first time every time?

Now we discover yet again that you don't believe that and expose your god as a fallible fool because you want to pray for it to undo what it did and replace it with something else?

Thank you for again proving your god is a fallible fool!

Thank you for proving yet again YOU are one of its doubters!

Next!

Atheism is neither true nor false.

Atheism is a rejection of theists claims due to insufficient evidence.

It all depends on which form of Atheism you are talking about. You seem to be advocating Weak Atheism, which means that you simply don't hold to the positive belief that God exists. Strong Atheism is different, that means that you hold the positive belief that God doesn't exist. Weak Atheism is just Agnostism, because you both:

(1) Don't believe God exists
and
(2) Don't believe that God doesn't exist

Oh, well if Conservapedia says so, I can't really argue about it. Right, I'd better work on being depressed now....hmmm. How does one do that?

If there was no evidence that being drunk was a danger to you or anyone around you, and didn't affect you in any negative way, but to make you happier, then yes, it would be a necessity of life.
Feelings are the fleeting fancy of fools.
The search for truth in a world of lies is the only thing that matters.

You completely misread that.
