It's common for Christians to say that atheists are just "angry" at the Christian god, as if atheists really believe but are engaged in some sort of rebellion against a parental figure. It's a ridiculous assertion since atheists can't be mad at something they don't believe exists.
But setting that aside for a moment, wouldn't anger at the Christians' god be justified? If it did exist, why shouldn't people be angry at it?
As atheists do we hate God? I mean if there was someone responsible for all the suffering, hatred and death it would be God right? Many preach that when a family member dies that its all in God's Plan, well who else believes that it is a little stupid when Christians argue that God gave us free will only to include and kill us in his grand stupid plan?
If he is up there I think he should retire, he hasn't really done anything worth while, well ok according to Christians God created everything, but where is he now? What kind of a merciful being would allow the amount of atrocities that have been committed in his name? So what if it was done by humans, we used him to justify it.
We implemented God in almost every massacre and war that has taken place in our history. We do not worship him, we use him to gain power and justify our actions, yet he seems to not care. After all that theists call us ignorant and stupid, at least we understand that *if* he was there, he doesn't care anymore.
What do you think -- are atheists just angry at God, or does it not make any sense to be "angry" at a being that doesn't exist in the first place?
