For example, many atheists argue that finite lifespan has value and infinite(or even very long) lifespan doesn't. Therefore it would be logical to kill yourself at 20 to make life even more valuable, but for some reason those atheists don't do that.

You are combining two separate discussions, badly.

Is there a god?

Is a finite life more valuable than an infinite life?

See two different questions that are not related.

Just as theists don't off themselves to get to heaven.

If heaven is the eternal reward why are people scared of dying and why to people mourn instead of celebrate?

"If heaven were so great, suicide would be a sacrament."
(I forget who said that.)

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

I see you've never attended an Irish wake. Smile

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Nope, but I have been to some Cajun after parties.

Sounds like a bullshit strawman to me.

So what? I care about my death much more than proving my religion to atheists.
Also atheists still didn't prove that atheism is logically consistent.

I don't believe in a deity.
Boom, answered.

A finite life is valuable, that's why we don't cut it short at 20, you fucking moron.

Your incoherent questions have been answered thoroughly many times before in other threads, you just don't seem to understand. I think you, yourself don't understand what it is that you've written either, as each one of your questions is either thoughtless, incoherent, or just plain stupid.

You've been outed as an idiot by many here. It's time to fuck off and stop making a fool of yourself.

And theists argue that they will be with god in heaven when they die. Why then do they cry when someone dies, particularly a child. If this child is in heaven with god they should be completely relieved and all smiles. Why do most theists go to the doctor when they're ill. Why don't they just let themselves get sick and die so they can be with god.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Because of a lack of conficdence I suspect.
