Why do atheist think by NOT believing in God they don´t have to suffer punishment?Posted by: Migrating_Hacker
Although they don't think that directly, that explains how it works subjectively.
They don't directly think that. If they don't believe in a god, then chances are, they don't believe in any sort of after life, there fore, not the type of "punishment" you are probably referring to. Most atheists, do however, believe in the existence of earthly consequences for immorality. If someone truly doesn't believe something, then they believe that anything contradictory is false. Therefore, if I don't believe that I will die, then I wouldn't expect or plan to. It's that simple.
