chinese culture is  inconsistent. so you have to be a realist to comfort yourself and adjust your life.

on the one hand, chinese may believe in several religions at the same. you can complain that they are not loyal, but they get choices for their free will.

Chinese atheists? No way. Still one of the most superstitious people in the world...Taoism,Bhuddism,Confucianism(yes,many scholars regard it as kind of religion) and and and....


on the other hand, when chinese have to challenge themselves or do something imppossible, they will become atheists. And the "ren ding sheng tian 人定胜天"  is their faith, whcih means if human being is strong enough, he will be more powerful than God and make things possible,

deep down, people need care. we are not animals, besides basic needs like food and clothing and sex, we have emotional needs. at times, we are fearful, confused and sentimental, that is when we want to go to someone or somewhere that can appease our negative emotions and warm our hearts and find a sense of belonging.

Chinese atheists

International educational testing shows that the US is way down the list. The countries is highest  on the list tend to be atheistic. This week in the article was released of a study that showed that atheists and agnostics knew more about religion then did that believers. Anyone who understands evolutionary biology knows that the myths of the religions of the Mideast about creation are false.  Then if you read the Bible  and Koran you find it impossible to believe that the God of the Jews, Christians, and Muslims is good. It seems that the less informed people are the more strongly they believe in that which is unprovable, that which is myth. some of this is discussed in Book 4 a free e-book series In Search of Utopia (andgulliverreturn.info), but the book doesn't take a stand on religion or atheism, it just explains them.

I would prefer that decisions affecting all of society be made by an atheist than by someone who is strongly entrenched in a religious philosophy. Religion can and does cloud the reasoning of people.

I am a atheist.

The deity is nothing but a purely imaginary thing .In real life,there are only fight and opportunity.The money is also an external thing,it is important  to keep fit.
