He's the ultimate sound bite politician and while he's busy destroying the US and possibly the world, we will all be giggling and shaking our heads over his stupid tweets. As Trump would say, sad.

You make it sound like not seeking god is some kind of weakness or failure. It's a choice, just like any other. I'll agree with the statement about truth setting me free, as I don't see any truth in...

Any number of converts does not mean all atheists are believers-in-waiting, and your use of the word 'truth' is a very misleading description of...

Actually, no. I'm not sure where you get this 'most atheists' nonsense from. Atheists are individuals, not a collective, so I can only speak for one atheist; me.
