    Harm is.. missing the possibility of God's existence, IF he really exists.

    Christ gives the option of life, this life ends in death.

    The second birth, our spiritual birth, overcomes death.

    Big topic, and that is Faith.

    Of course, we are what our mind is. Do you think you are what your body is, but, NOT mind ?

    Again, I have to say.. that perhaps I am missing the possibility of God's existence, IF he really exists.

    If you dont believe in God your a God murderer, as faith is the essence of hope, as fire is the essence of the sun, and we are going to set non-violence free on you.

    There is no harm specifically from not believing in god, it depends on the other beliefs you add on to this and how these affect your thoughts or actions.

    For example: Kid believes he has parent. Its complete and enough.
    There's NO need add any other unnecessarily belief to it.
