At least atheists aren't pious hypocrites.

Not angry...

Oh, yeah, I really enjoy my steroid-hormone-antibiotic-genetically-modified-franken-food chicken that went from egg to table in 4 months and tastes like a wet paper towel.

What teeny tiny bit of good that might have ever been done amounts to a mere speck of dust in an infinite universe, and in no way makes up for the centuries of horrors that were perpetrated upon people.

And what is yet to come?

Critically...

I think the space industry would be totally revamped and have a far more greater role than it has now.

I defintely think an Atheistic age would be a space age like earth has never focused on before.
Oooooooweeeeeee!!!!!!
That sounds like a blast. Who says atheists aren't fun to be around???
Poetry, music, literature, love, friendship...all such a waste of time.

That's right, because atheists cannot possibly enjoy any of these things. Can you imagine being an atheist? You would never have any friends, you wouldn't love anybody, you wouldn't listen to music and you certainly wouldn't read poetry or literature (except for On the Origin of Species). What a horrible life, I feel sorry for them

I certainly would like to hear you explain why Atheist cannot possibly enjoy those things; I hope your just kidding.

A much more peaceful planet!

Imagine by John Lennon:
"Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today"

The above is your quote...seems a pretty self explanatory description of the little atheist utopia of the future. But I admit...my simple mind most likely missed the subtle nuance of your post. I humbly apologize.
