Did you mean to ask, "Has anyone ever met an atheist who is not miserable?" Yes, I have.
Why do they/we annoy you? You readily admit that seeing someone truly happy bothers you. Why is that?

Probably because it's usually fake. You can tell genuine from put on fairly easy.

Sophia I'm a committed Christian too, but I think your post is being too stereotypical. I've met religious and non-religious people who are both miserable, angry people and upbeat as well. Just because people say they're Christian doesn't mean they don't have a mean streak. Lots do. Maybe it has to do with their level of commitment or something I guess

He is also imaginary.

But if it make you happy Santa Claus feels the same way about kids AND brings presents.

How so? Tell me about a real person that is usually joyful versus a "fake" one.

That being said, I will say it must be nice to be able to delude yourself into believing that God will take care of everything, that you will go to heaven when you die, etc.
So you assume that every who believes in God is of the Christian faith.

How small minded of you.

Prove it. If you can't, I admire your faith.

BTW - I'm not an atheist. I'm agnostic. There are certain things that science can't explain and, because of it, I do not pretend to know that there is not any supreme being. That being said, there is also no proof that there is.

I see militant atheists as annoying. That being said, so are militant religious people.
