I refuse to worship a god that allows children to die from cancer.

Well, everybody dies, and it’s typically not pretty or fun.  And, all of us come in to this world bloody and screaming, and we don’t then declare birth to be bad.

It’s not rational to assume that death is bad given how little we know about it.  It’s also not rational to assume that death is bad given that all that accomplishes is to make us suffer. 

Check out the following thread for a science based exploration of the experience of death:

I’m not claiming it proves anything.  I’m just saying there are tools available which can help some people form a more positive relationship with death, tools which don’t depend on any religion.

I think you’re putting the wrong emPHAsis on the wrong syLABle. It’s not the death that’s a problem, especially for children with cancer, it’s all the suffering they go through PRIOR to death. No god worth their weight in salt would impose that on a child if they had the power not to.

Why would that question even occur to an atheist?
And why would atheists want to discuss the merits of something that only exists in other people’s delusions?

Well, studying religious delusions might give the atheist insight in to their own delusions.

  Answering the title of your thread, even if it existed, no.
