QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Although there are far too many questions to list on this page, here are some answers to a few of the more common questions atheists are asked.
Q: Don't atheists have basically empty, meaningless lives, when they don't believe that there is any higher power out there? 
 
A: Nope. We don't think that the world is an empty, meaningless place, even though we don't think a god designed it. We think the world is a fascinating, wonderful, interesting place, and we enjoy living in it. Now, you may think that it's impossible to "really" enjoy this world without believing of God as the designer. We don't feel that way.
 
Q: How can anyone possibly be moral without believing in God? 
 
A: Pretty much the same way that anyone else can be moral: by considering their actions, weighing the consequences, and deciding whether they are doing more harm than good to themselves and other people.

 Q: What do you think happens to you when you die? 
 
A: Just in case there are any misconceptions about this, most serious atheists don't believe in reincarnation or spirits any more than we believe in hell. What defines "you" is what you think and feel, and how you interact with the universe. When this stops happening, you're not you anymore. So you simply stop existing.

Q: Do you hate God? 
 
A: Nope. We don't hate Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, the Tooth Fairy or Darth Vader either. Remember, atheists do not believe God exists. Hating something you don't believe exists  is rather a waste of time.
