  1. It's not about critical thinking. Critical thinking is a universal value, there is no opposition to it, no one wants to think uncritically, no one considers it valuable to have a belief that is intentionally devoid of grounds. And the reason is often a lack of resources – “I think this way because I don't have the strength/time/knowledge to think otherwise.” The atheist here is special only in that he does not have the main reason to believe in God – the need for it. So he doesn't believe it.

    Behind atheism, first of all, is the self, isolation. Separateness is opposed by the value of community, self-denial for the sake of dissolving into something much bigger than you. It is this insoluble contradiction that creates the dichotomy of religion and atheism. Here communism is raised as an objection, but it is precisely in this sense that communism is a religion, with prophecies, prophets and the transcendental essence of historical regularity, in which it is proposed to dissolve, with which it is literally proposed to “reconnect”. Similarly, behind Buddhism, which also has no personal God, is the desire for impersonation. An atheist, as a person who denies the highest, which must be obeyed, at the same time proclaims the value of his own personality, individuality. “Be what others weren't.”

    It automatically follows that by gaining faith, a person gets the opportunity to distance himself from making decisions, to become a part of something that makes them.

    That is, it is literally Hamlet's problem of “to be or not to be”, to take full responsibility for yourself, freeing yourself from external compulsions, but condemning yourself to the finiteness of being and existential loneliness, or to free yourself from responsibility, shifting it to someone who has already laid out your course for you. There is no right choice here, only one that you can live with.

  2. Nothing. He just doesn't waste time,money, or anything else on understanding God .Atheists have nothing against religion. Religion doesn't teach you anything bad. Atheists are against instilling an incomprehensible meaning of faith in God, disputes, and hostility. It's not about faith,it's about religion, but about the behavior of some people, both on the part of believers and on the part of atheists.

  3. First of all, harmony, as his worldview has found clear, unambiguous supports. In the case of atheism, this is also self-respect, in the case of religion-relief, liberation from problems, shifting them to God, and plus-support for like-minded people, ordering their lives by performing certain rituals

  4. Thinking about what? Where to strike: in faith or in atheism? If you have this approach, you will be both a bad believer and an unconvincing atheist. You know what? Go to the priesthood. There, healthy cynicism is welcome.

  5. There is plenty of evidence that the Bible's principles actually work. They help people become better: they “make the inexperienced wise, “”bring joy to the heart, “and give” the eyes to sow”, giving spiritual understanding.

    The Bible gives us hope that God, out of love for man ,will not tolerate evil and suffering for those who respect his authority and norms. Evil people will “get the full benefit” of ” their plans.”

    “But the meek shall inherit the earth, and enjoy the abundance of peace” (Psalm 37:11) God will soon establish the Kingdom for which all men pray. And it will be a real Paradise!
