God is all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, all-wise, but he NEEDS money - George Carlin
The evidence for God is only the shadow cast by those who must believe in magic and want to control othersHe sacrificed himself to himself to appease himself then burned nearly all of those he did it for. Imagine No Religion

Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7 We do not expect a Reward.
oh right. I get you. Wink....Wink....
The end result is the same. A Christian signs up just like anyone else knowing that he or she may not come back. There is no love greater than this of one who lays down his life for his brothers. Anyone can sacrifice and everyone of them will be honored. We thank God that there are such men that are there to give their lives to keep everyone safe. But just because there is someone that doesn't believe in life after death doesn't make theirs any greater. Do you think Christians want to die? Do you think those without belief in life after death want to die? If you think that then you are a fool. The only difference between the two is peace in what they have done and what might be coming. I applaud those who make that sacrifice but to say that out of two people that died to defend the country one of them gave more is absolute foolishness. If you want to talk about kindness and sacrifice you can go and look to Jesus. Whether he was right or wrong He speaks of a lifestyle that is humble and giving. Never does He tell a believer to put themselves first in any situation other than to be the first to step up and spread the word. That is a lifestyle that teaches that you must fight every hint of human nature you have in order to be complete. There is no greater sacrifice than a life lived for others. That is a case that a Christian or an atheist dieing on a battlefield can both share without one being better than the other. It shames me to think that something like that was even posted for debate. I'm sorry for the loss of the great man that died, but to post something like that is insulting his sacrifice and what he did for our great nation.
The result is not the same. One knows he is giving up his one life, the other believe he will immediately pop into heaven and be with loved ones that had died before him. Yes, Christians look forward to dying to be with their Lord, even Paul looked forward to it. Jesus said call someone a fool is in danger of hell fire. You need to be careful there. I honor the atheist. His sacrifice was for eternity. Don't tell me how fragile you are that you cannot hear this. Christians are good condemning those that don't believe like them telling us we are going to hell. If I honor an atheist that is minor compared to Christian condemnation.
