It takes a certain level of 'open mindedness' to even consider the concept of 'no God', if you were raised that way. And, for most, that's impossible, no matter how much you beg, plead, berate, whine, and belittle.

TO raise a “high moral” question inherent to the religious.
TO point out to undecided that belief without evidence is NOT a virtue.
TO promote scientific way of thinking.
