Atheism is unstoppable and growing rapidly in developed countries, including Japan. This is probably due to better education and the ability to question what was thought to be a sin – to think. Having no religion is as bad as being a religious fanatic, more often than not, a religion stops being a religion and becomes a cult when the followers follows the teaching blindly. The question is, can a country be peaceful if a majority of the people are atheist? Denmark and Sweden are among the least religious nations in the world, and also one of the best with good education, minimal crimes and honest people. Three question up for debate, there are no right or wrong, only different opinions.
Who created God? and if God can exist without a creator, using the same principle, why can’t humans and all the living beings exist without a creator?
Science shows that the universe has billions and billions of planets, if Aliens do exist, doesn’t that contradicts the teaching of God created us in his image? Unless the Aliens have the same human forms too, which is unlikely.
If God created humans and all the living beings, then evolution is fake, but within our short recorded history, bacteria and viruses have evolves to counter penicillin and antibiotics we humans developed. Isn’t that proof of evolution? And all religions themselves show the very idea of evolution is real, as seen with the many branches and sub-branches then sub-sub branches of Christianity and Islam as they adapted to the local culture, climate, environment and political situation. There is no 1 denomination of Christianity, neither is there 1 school of Islamic thoughts. Same goes with Buddhism and many other religion in the world.

Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able, and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neight able nor willing? Then why call him God? – Epicurus

If there is a God, atheism must seem to Him as less of an insult than religion. – Edmond De Goncourt
They told me to use the brain God gave me. I did. Now I’m an Atheist. Ironic, isn’t it?
I love you so much that I’m going to hide my existence to the point that I will be indistinguishable from other gods, and if you follow the wrong god, you are going to suffer for eternity.
