You ask me why athiesm should not be the dominant world "religion". Because athiesm can only truly be embraced by those priveledged enough to choose not to believe in anything. An athiest needs confidence in himself, scientific understanding, and the benefit of being raised by a family with a conscience. Those blessings are not common in this world. We sit in our ivory tower and denounce religion as the cause of suffering, but imagine a world without it. Governments would have to take over the father role for those who can find no inner direction. If your government tires of caring for you, they will simply let you die, or kill you outright. Read your history again.
Yes my love, you can always trust your leaders.
What? You say I am being inconsistent, and hypocritical. That I delight in sins of the flesh, and in abuse of my slaves, and send people over the balcony.
Beloved, do you really wish for me to be consistent? If so I can request that my father arrange for your head to be delivered to me on a platter.
Your silence tells me you are wise.
