    THERE ARE SOME Wonderful ATHEISTS WHO DO NOT HONESTLY DON'T KNOW IF THERE IS A GOD OR NOT, BUT DON'T WE ALL SAY THERE IS NO GOD WHEN WE CONTINUE TO SIN AND LOVE IT? THEN WE SUDDENLY SEE THE LIGHT BY GOD'S GRACE AND FINALLY TURN TO HIM. 

    WE MUST PRAY NOT ONLY FOR OURSELVES BUT FOR ALL MANKIND AND THOSE IN PURGATORY, WHETHER YOU BELIEVE IN GOD AND PURGATORY OR NOT, THEY STILL EXIST, IN PRAYING FOR THEM(FOR THEY CANNOT PRAY FOR THEMSELVES ANYMORE). YOU ARE LOVING GOD AND YOUR FELLOW MAN, BECAUSE GOD WANTS THEM RELEASED ASAP

    GOD HEARS ALL PRAYERS AND THOSE RELEASED WILL IN TURN PRAY FOR YOU!!!

    Seems like you're again projecting your behavior onto the atheists you bash constantly, ❀✿☹Flowerchild☹✿❀. Year after year, you've been posting questions in R&S hurling insults at atheists and spreading nastiness like "Why do atheists tend to be wimpy whiny wieners?", "Why is atheism getting stupider and stupider by the day?", and this question. You should find a better hobby.

    Boredom?

    I expect it is a similar mindset as you see with the joyless Christians who spend so much time hurling insults and spreading nastiness about non-Christians (although I mostly read the questions about atheism so I mostly see hate directed at atheists).

    Luckily most of us aren't like that, neither the atheists nor the Christians, most of us are polite and seek to have calm and composed conversation.

    Because some of them are possessed by the spirits of demons, to annoy this section of Religion.

    Those who do that get their twisted pleasure from doing so especially the ones who post disgusting filth regarding Jesus Christ. Such persons are to be shown pity, their lives are going to be very short lest they change.

    I suppose they might do it in 'retaliation' because a theist had done the same to atheists. This would be a rather foolish and immature thing to do, as there will very likely be another theist who also retaliates in a similar manner, leading to a vicious circle of insults. Sadly some people fall into this sort of behaviour all too easily, but it does only seem to be a small minority of either group who are sad enough to do it all the time. You are a prime example, of course.

    I've not seen one atheist on here hurl insults or spread nastiness. All I've seen them say is "provide the proof". If that's an insult Jesus you Christos are touchy
