Atheists think sex should be between a person and that person.

Atheists observe that God’s laws generally lead to stoning, illiteracy and ugly dresses.

Atheists want to know if believers can prove that.

Atheists think believers are persons, too.

Atheists observe that so do serial killers.

20. Believers believe all misfortune in the world is caused by man’s sinful nature.
