"People unaffiliated with organized religion, atheists and agnostics also report anger toward God either in the past, or anger focused on a hypothetical image - that is, what they imagined God might be like[.]"

Might as well say: Some people get angry at fictional characters that do bad things! News at 11!

Ah-duh. I dislike any fictional character that I read about/see doing evil, hypocritical, self-centered things that harm generally innocent people or groups. I think most people are that way.

The worst thing here is that some people want to portray this as atheists somehow believing in God and hating Him. That's some self-contradicting BS right there. The actual article says it includes hypothetical gods, and once you`ve really read the Bible, you know that some well known hypothetical gods can be pretty huge a-holes. (Joshua 10:40 or Psalm 137:8-9, anyone?)

"Tribal people you talk about were far more uncivilized toward women and children."

To the contrary- the societal systems of small communities, tribal cultures and indigenous people typically FAVOR women.

"You're just completely wrong about Christian morals and Roman times. Where do you get your understanding of Romans from, the movies ?

All was not well in Rome, and if you could`ve seen it as it actually was back then you`d have been sickened by how they treated the poor, children, women, and how their law was met out. "

I apologize- i didn`t realize you witnessed these events first hand.

I`m far from an expert but from what I understand the claims that Rome was a Utopia are equally as false as that it was a dystopia.

I would much rather take my chances in ancient Rome than in modern Calcutta- or some Eastern European countries.

If anything- the things that made Roman life the most unbearable (if you were a commoner) would be the lack of modernization, and by relation: sanitation, medicine, etc.

Atheist here, and I'm not angry at God at all. Hard to be angry at a made up play thing in the sky. I`m no more angry at this "God" character than I am say "Santa Clause", "Easter Bunny", "Zues", "Ra the Sun God" or "Ash the Pokemon Trainer" because they are tales of fiction, and are of no concern to a reasonable mind that is capable of observing the world around them. Simple as that.
