    In the world without angels,
    The destruction in near
    (song "Moment of Peace", Gregorian).

    There are people exactly like angels in Theism.

    Hence, atheism denies the existence of extremely good people, extraordinary good people. In atheism, there is a grey, indistinguishable mob olnly.

    On the contrary many of my best mates are Angels and some really good mates are Demons, never got on with Satan Slaves though. Not sure I would describe any of them as exceptionally good people though.

    And they say ignorance is bliss.

    Atheism denies one thing, the existence of gods. Nothing more, nothing less Anything you add to that is down to ignorance or bigotry. Your choice

    When did atheism ever deny the existence of good people?

    Don't you know? The new definition of atheism is to deny absolutely everything. Even atheism.

    Atheism is a world-VIEW without angels. The angels are either there or they aren't, regardless. But it is sad to think of a world view without angels, even if only the very Earthly kind.

    Some atheists are extremely good people, but they lack belief in God.
    Some theists are extremely bad people but they believe in a God...

    Maybe a self loathing closeted atheist who overcompensates by atheist bashing on an online forum. when he finally steps out of the closet, this is the kind of entrance he'd make. :D

    There's a woman I work with who is surly and takes no guff. She's no nonsense, and tough as nails. She's also is a foster mom who takes in troubled children and gives them a loving home, and she's one of the most selfless human beings I've had the pleasure of knowing. If that isn't an angel, I don't know what is. :)

    What? :)

    Without an explanation of what you mean with extraordinary good people, its difficult to know what you mean. But I don't think that any atheist believe that no one can be good, but to claim that someone is nothing but good is probably not true. But that doesn't mean that we don't think that a majority of people are good, but all of us have quirks and oddities, which can be perceived as wrong by others.

    Even Jesus said that no one is good except God. So guess he agrees with the atheists then? :D
