Which one gives this life more meaning? I think that's pretty clear.

But a life believing your sky wizard is going to give eternal life of doing nothing but worshipping his pompous ass is worth it?

They see it as without Jesus life is meaningless... They can't imagine a life without a collar and a leash tying them to paradise. Too afraid to take the blinders off their eyes to see there isn't really a God holding on that leash, but a pole that ties them down.

"Governments don't want well informed, well educated people capable of critical thinking That is against their interests.
They want obedient workers people who are just smart enough to run the machines and do the paperwork And just dumb enough to passively accept it."

I've never been even slightly religious, so an atheistic life is all I've ever had. People trying to change that, but reality ass-raped their attempts.

Atheists aren't so much more intelligent than clueless religious folk, despite what atheists think. In terms of intelligence, it goes like this (from least to most intelligent): in-name-only Christians, atheists, deists, monotheists, animists. I'm a deist so I'm not the most intelligent person, despite what I used to think. I would love to be an atheist or monotheist but I can't be an atheist because I want to believe in a higher power and I can't be a monotheist because it's just too unrealistic.

If people were at least *talking* about intelligence... no, that would still be dumbest thing I've read in a while Facepalm

You may have cause and effect backwards there.

wanting to believe is not the same as believing

Very few say atheists are.
