Yesterday’s Guardian had an 84 point headline reading:

“There is no heaven or afterlife… that is a fairy story for people afraid of the dark”  – Stephen Hawking

Why Do They Hate Atheists?

23 April, 2011

A little while ago, a Brazilian journalist contacted Harry and asked him why it was that people with religious belief hated atheists. Here is Harry’s response:

They’re Afraid of Us! – by Harry Harrison

It is hard to be religious. The priests threaten hellfire, eternal torture; very nice. Some believe that they feel disgust and repulsion towards atheists. Not true…

It’s fear!

We atheists lead happy lives, never concerned with the-dying-and-burn forever-in-hell nonsense. We know better. We enjoy happiness with our friends and neighbors and ignore all the greed and rituals that pay the parasite priests.

Let them wallow in their medieval superstition while we enjoy all the wonders of our God-free universe.

All that the godly feel is jealousy.
