Atheism, Religion, God is Imaginary. Atheism: We're just more skeptical about the existence of invisible beings than everyone else. *especially ones who are all-powerful and all-knowing and have a constant need to be told how great they are. **we tend to believe these types of "gods" are just the ideas of men derived from superstition or an attempt to control human behavior.
It's also about control. If you think by being subservient and living the way they want you to will mean a better afterlife, you will willingly give up your life to serve the people in power. Not so if it is the only life you have.
