Top 10 Reasons Why It's Easier to Think That Things Just Happen

What I mean by this is that it's much, much easier to think that bad things that happen to good people just happen and that there's no supernatural force that's responsible for any of that (you don't die for being homosexual nor do you suffer for having the wrong beliefs). And unfortunately we can't control any of it. We just have to accept it and try to make something positive out of it. I honestly think that's better for everyone.

The Top Ten

1 God and other supernatural forces are not the reason for your suffering

Like I said in the list description, God isn't the reason homosexuals suffer. Also Satan isn't the reason you're suffering either (evil is man-made. It's not a force or anything). Sometimes you're the reason for your suffering mainly if you make the wrong choices in life. Always the right ones so you can live a much easier and happier life. - DarkMatter1997

2 So we don't discriminate against those with different beliefs

Most people are always saying "Christianity is the true religion! Islam is the real way of life! "

No religions are correct. If there was a correct one then we'd all be following it. - DarkMatter1997

3 So we don't become misotheists

You think atheists hate God? Then check out misotheists. Those are people who actually hate God. It's honestly not something I wanna stick with because it's just a waste of time for someone like me to hate on something I don't even believe in. - DarkMatter1997

4 It's better to think that things that happen are just coincidences

This list ain't bad
I still refuse to believe things just happen, as I'd rather not let luck control my life - SpectralOwl

Enough said. - DarkMatter1997

5 Suffering happens to people no matter what they believe in

It just go to show that suffering doesn't depend on religions at all. I used to be a pious Christian until I had to go through so much crap in my life (dealing with bullies and the death of my mom) which made lose all faith in God. - DarkMatter1997

6 If god is unable to prevent evil, then he's not omnipotent

From what I've heard God is all-powerful. If so then why doesn't he do anything about all the sufferings in the world? It doesn't make any sense. If he can't prevent all evil then he's not omnipotent at all. - DarkMatter1997

7 It would be much better to live with common sense

It honestly works much better for me. I live by it instead. - DarkMatter1997

I say the previous comment

Aaaand, this entry shows up. This shows how the true struggle of making lists is not having 10 ideas for entries on a list - SpectralOwl

8 We shouldn't use religion to justify bad thoughts and actions

We shouldn't go out and kill people just because it's part of God's ultimate plan or anything (I know his plan is supposed to be ultimately good but people are always finding different ways to justify bad behavior). - DarkMatter1997

9 So we don't go around and tell innocent people that they're being punished

What if they did nothing wrong? What if they were completely innocent? - DarkMatter1997

10 Not everyone is gonna believe in the supernatural

If you don't believe this, that's fine. I believe in ghosts (I'm an atheist so its complicated to some) believe what you want, not what others tell you too - RustyNail

Again, enough said. - DarkMatter1997
