Gad I love answering questions like those below. Love it. The pure illogic of the statements is astounding.
Is Atheism a LACK of Belief in God or a BELIEF that there is no God?
Actually in my case it’s the lack of belief in this particular god and a certainty that there is no god.
If God Exists Would You Become A Christian?
Um – this one is a bit on the illogical side. It makes the assumption that god does not exist and then tries to be all clever in asking if x then y. See my answer to question 1, I don’t believe in god, and I’m certain the Christian god, along with all gods don’t exist.
How Do You Determine What’s Right & What’s Wrong?
It’s a little thing called empathy – imagine how things would be perceived and act accordingly. For example, I’m flippant when answering stupid questions like these for a reason.
How Do You Deal With Guilt & Sin in Your Life?
Well since there’s no god, then there cannot be sin. As to guilt, it’s generally better to fess up and take the lumps.
Do You Act According To What You Believe or According To What You Lack In Belief?
I try to be a nice guy and it grates my nerves when apologists try to conflate belief with act. See my answer to Question 4.
Can You Prove HOW the Universe Was Created?
Can you prove that your god is the true god out of the hundreds and thousands of gods in the past?
That said, the big bang – I think the apologist who created these questions has no inkling of what may have been before that event. For example, string theory taken to it’s optimal configuration says there’s more than one universe. So who’s to say the spark for the big bang wasn’t an event that occurred in one of those other universes. The stupidity of this question makes my head hurt.
Can You Prove That God Does Not Exist?
Oh the proof – simple if God exists may he strike me down right this moment for blaspheming his name. Haven’t been struck down yet. Therefore God does NOT exist.
And in addition, let’s think for a moment. God also created evil in that he create the Angel who fell from heaven and became what we know of as the Devil, Satan, Bellzebub, Asmodeus, El Diablo, etc. And did you know the the concept of Hell does not exist in the Old Testament? Yes boys and girls.
Then there’s Genesis 4, after Cain slay Abel. He goes east into the land of Nod and finds a wife. So who were those other people in Nod? Let’s just say whoever wrote Genesis, they weren’t good at logical leaps.
Do You Know Where You’re Going When You Die?
To a crematorium? And from there scattered in a little town in Italy. So yes, I know where I’m going.

These questions look familiar… 😀
Journeying Atheist: Indeed they do. It’s just a synopsis of a list of 30 some questions some other apologist posted some time ago and which I duly answered.
Well I guess I have next week’s Ask an Atheist :-)
