    Moral behavior is the exclusive province of neither theists nor atheists. Likewise, an ability to delude oneself into believing complete and utter bullshit with religious intensity is likewise exclusive to neither theists nor atheists. Self-deceit respects no religious belief.
    You're being extremely vague here. Why not actually address what you think atheists deceive themselves of?

      That socialism works. That much was known well over a century ago, hence Frederick Engels' cooking of Marx's mathematical proofs in his Capital. It was a fraud then, and it's a fraud now. So why do so many keep falling for it again, and again, and again?

        You seem to hold the misconception that atheists agree on politics. That's not true. Atheists simply hold that believing something is caused by magic or the supernatural or magic isn't supported by facts. Atheists hold many different political views.

          'Tis true, 'tis true -- but socialists are obliged by the founding tenets of their ideology to be united in their view of god. They deny the existence of that which can be neither proven nor disproven -- but believe fanatically in that which has long been proven wrong. Whose more delusional: the theist -- or the socialist atheist?

            Theist. The theory of socialism hasn't worked, but there is a chance it could work. A theist believes magic runs their world.

            Also, socialism doesn't require you to be an atheist btw. I've met a couple who were theists.

              And what chance is that? Zero? Sounds pretty magical to me.

              So how can a person who disregards Marx's "opiate of the masses" critique qualify as a socialist? Lenin had some thoughts on that type.

                The chance is greater than zero, but it's more of a utopian idea.

                  Is it at least equal to me chances of hitting the Powerball?

                    Eh, I'm no mathematician, but yeah pretty low chance.

                    Because I'm not a theist or socialist?
