Jim The Atheist

Rating: 4.5
Jim the atheist says it does seem a bit odd
That they feel scared of death those who believe in god
If they genuinely believed in a life after death they would be happy to die
Do they harbour a tiny seed of doubt that god's existence may be a lie
Jim the atheist says there is no heaven in the sky
Where good souls post bodily death with wings to does fly
He says religion was invented for to give poor people hope
So with their financial woes they would try harder to cope
Jim the atheist is one that is impossible to convince
Of the existence of a god he says it makes no common sense
That a superior being does exist one you never does see
To those who tell him of the existence of god he says are you trying to fool me
Jim the atheist says there is no heaven or hell
And he laughs at those who call him an infidel.

Much like political affiliation and ardency, religious beliefs stem from situation. If you were born to a certain class, in a certain region, surrounded my like minded people, and indoctrinated from birth; you will hold 'beliefs' that reflect that circumstance. You will eschew any other possibility as Fake News. You will be next to impossible to convince that, at the very least, any other 'Reality' could exist. Sigh.

When such an incredible claim is made (The 'existence' of a god) The burden of PROOF falls upon the believer. Fundamental logic shows that one can not prove a negative. So I will not even try to 'prove' that there is NO god.
