I myself have wondered this same thing, many many times. Yes

RE: Much Happier now that I'm an Atheist
I'm definitely happier as an atheist than I was as a fundamentalist Christian. I suspect that has a lot to do with moving away from a mindset and culture set up to condition me (especially as a female) to follow others' instructions or be literally damned. But also I think the increased happiness is a consequence of becoming an adult and being able to make my own decisions.

I noticed something recently that I have noticed within myself, I'm much happier now as an Atheist than I ever was as a Christian.

Happy in a finite life on earth. Unhappy in an infinite life in hell. Oh, and that isn't a threat by the way, either.

Hell for me would be eternity with pompous, self-righteous assholes like you.

My belief in hell is based on the background information I have regarding the Historicity of the Resurrection, which affirms Christianity...and you already know how that goes Big Grin

There is no evidence of the Resurrection. Pro tip: The Bible is not evidence.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.

Then there is no evidence that Caesar was stabbed.

Other than the eyewitness accounts? Consider

There is no reason to accept the veracity of a book of myths that is unsupported by external evidence. That you do speaks volumes about your gullibility and delusion.

RE: Much Happier now that I'm an Atheist
I used to hate it when I was having a debate with someone and I couldn't defend my position with anything except the bible tells me so. I'd have this big ole awkward silence which really meant, "I know I do not make a lick of sense right now." Being the only bible thumper in an atheist family, this happened often!
