If you look at the universe and study the universe, what you find is that there is no evidence that we need anything other than the laws of physics and the other laws of science to explain everything we see. There's absolutely no evidence that we need any supernatural hand of god. -- Lawrence Krauss, World-Renowned Physicist
There is probably no other notion in any field of science that has been as extensively tested and as thoroughly corroborated as the evolutionary origin of living organisms. -- Encyclopedia Britannica
FAITH. No one word personifies the absolute worst and most wicked properties of religion better than that. Faith is mind-rot. It’s the poison that destroys critical thinking, undermines evidence, and leads people into lives dedicated to absurdity. It’s a parasite regarded as a virtue. -- PZ Myers
Religion is the antithesis of science, an anesthetic for the mind that disables critical thought and encourages the acceptance of inanity as fact, and wishful thinking as evidence. -- PZ Myers

Someone had a good idea and I wrote about it.

The question I'd ask is whether the truly righteous would even want to live again. Part of to be righteous is to be humble, to not covet new and shiny things.
Well done. It would be interesting to hear what a Christian has to say about it.
I think wishing for a magical 2nd life is being greedy. I'm grateful for the one life I have.
I like reality. If reality was thrown out so I can live again, I would not like that at all. A world of supernatural magic would be a terrible thing. Fortunately reality is what it is and it doesn't care if other people want to throw reality out. Reality isn't going anywhere. Therefore dead people stay dead and that's a good thing.
Atheism is an acceptance of reality. Theism is the acceptance of fantasy. Take your pick.
