Isn't any religious belief better than none?

If you worship Satan, is that better than no religious belief?

No.

The belief in a mystical, supreme being who controls us only serves to buffer reality.

And that ain't good.

Accept the fact that we live, we die, and nothing really matters in the big scheme of things.

To quote Camus: "I laid my heart open to the benign indifference of the universe."

Show me someone that's a devout atheist and I'll show you someone that's likely autistic.

I am an atheist, but am not "devout" about it.

Really, I could care less what YOU think on the subject; just leave me the hell alone.

You want to proselytize, go practice on your dog.

Do you seriously believe that all of THESE folks were "likely autistic?"

When he THINKS, I have no clue what he believes, which is perfect.

It is when he attempts to promulgate his thoughts via words on a computer screen that the game is afoot: he switches from "thinking" to "arguing" or "preaching."

I think you meant you could not care less. The funny part is you posted a list where bjork and david duchovny are in the top ten. THAT JUST HAPPENED!
