Papajon, i first want to make totaly clear that i have no reason to and in no way want to tell you or anyone else what they can or cannot believe in. If you are secure that your live is in the hands of a god, and you have both peace and happiness with that knowledge then all the power to you man, seriously, not being sarcastic.

As to what can be a reason for people to tredge on if they do not believe in a god? well, that is personal for each and every one of them. Maybe they feel they are teh ones to blame or aplaud if they succeed or fail in live. Maybe they feel that religious people do not celebrate their victories or moarn their losses as their own but as a preordained one. Maybe they soldier on because they feel that to make the world better, they have to do it themself and there for keep trying.

Maybe it is something completely different still.

But more important,why do you live trough all the pain and suffering?

Despite the bleating of the followers of the 'current' god, the old gods are still with us:
Look up the origins of the days of the week and month.
The only way I would consider the current incumbent in the 'god' position is if the days and months are re-named to reflect his power and might, rather than hiding behind the façades of past glories.

@papajon0s1

"then I have to ask, why bother?"

To make THIS life as good as we can make it.

Do you invest your efforts in the short life you know you have, or in the eternal life you might have? Well, the answer to that lies in what you would do with a dollar you have spare: do you buy a lotto ticket, or do you treat yourself to a chocolate bar?

I realize I am in the vast vast vast minority here, but if there is no God, no Creator, nothing at all, then I have to ask, why bother? Why live through all the pain and suffering? To what ultimate purpose? To date no one has died and brought their millions of dollars portfolio with them. You don't get to bring most prized physical possessions. Pascal argued that there is no down-side to believing in God. If you'all are right then after death I'll happily admit to my failures in my faith and you can have my entire share of the nothing at all that we would then end up being. So I ask why, oh why on God's green earth would I not live my life as if I could spend an eternity with an ultimate loving God? I am not in a cult nor brain-washed, nor forced to give any money in my Catholic faith. I do not force others to do anything they choose not to do. I don't rain down hatred and bias and evil tidings. I'm optimistic and happy and I'll still pray for all of you flame me or not!

@CrakrJak

"We all have eternal souls."

Oh we do?

You believe that without proof, yet climate change needs stringent proof before you believe it?

What strange conflicting standards you have.

Those gods are not dead. They are merely unworshiped. Every god ever worshiped was and is real, but they are less than the sovereign God of Gods who made even them.

Religion as we know it today won't last forever, the christian god along with all others will be consigned to myth as new concepts and ideas take it's place. Religion was our civilization's first baby steps in attempting to understand the world around us and one day we will hopefully look back and remember it as such.

I don't know of many atheists forcing by law anyone to live as they want or believe, Modwain. In fact, just the opposite, in that atheists tend toward rules and laws that are inclusive rather than exclusive.

no god has ever persisted on being reall, they percisted cause the culture that hangs on to that god did. once that culture is no longer leading, that god is dwindeling and when the culture is gone, so, for the larger part, is that god.

Religion has always been men's way to explain the not understood part of the world, and use as a tool to keep teh populace in check, hence we see more monothism now then polytheism. for the latter means that more things are posible, where as monotheism only holds sway to a black and white concept.

You want to believe in a god? more power to you. You do not want to believe in a god? more power to you too.
you want (to force) others to believe what you do? who the hell are you to tell others how to live? and yes, this goes for both religious and athistic people. Religion is a personal thing and as such should only be treated as such

When religion was introduced into the UK census in 2001 the question was considered by many to be an intrusion into their privacy and nobody else's business. As a result, there were a quarter of a million recorded as Jedi order (or related name).
Religious leaders protested that this was a practical joke, no such religion existed, it came out of a book. Written by a man.
I have a feeling that in the future there will be more arguments about religions based on stories in a book from a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...

CrakrJak, just because I don't believe in a god doesn't mean I don't believe in more than just the "known universe".

Science has proven that the known universe is a speck of the reality we accept and understand today.

God is not part of the equation, but that doesn't mean that your spirit, or "life energy" just goes away. the reality of your existence is far more romantic and amazing without a god. You are the child of a star, from aeons past. You are related to everything around you in this world of chemicals and atoms. You are individually effecting the progression of the world around you. No matter how small you feel, you are essentially an imperfection granted sentience, birthed from the dissipating dust from stars. Cherish the life you have, because there is nothing more beautiful than the chaos we breath.

You are Christian because you were born in a Christian culture. If you were born in Deli you'd be hindu... catholic in brazil, muslim if you were born in Iraq or jewish if born in Israel.

It's difficult, but it's time to face reality...your "god" is a made-up myth from a superstitious culture you were born into. No different from Odin or Juno or any other "mythologic" god.

I wonder what future people will think of the things we "worship" today?


It depends on what you mean by future. Do you mean the future before Christ returns or the future after Christ returns?

ferdyfred: Even science says that energy doesn't die. So where does our human energy (spirit) go?

I refuse the belief that human consciousness just ceases to exist. We all have eternal souls.

Btw, The God of Abraham, Elohim, Adonai, El Shaddai, Yahweh, Jehovah, El Elyon, He has many names, has persisted because he is real.

When you die you die
end of, your fleshy bits are buried or cremated
thus endeth your very tiny short spurt in the universes grand scheme of things
get over it, no god, no special being, just a collection of sparks which determine you, spark dies
you go, bye bye

I don't think humans will ever give up on religion. There will always be fearful people and those willing to control them
