God equals government

by

It saddens me that, in general, atheists turn loose of their need to believe in a god, only to immediately substitute the state.  You are not being any smarter when you replace one god with another.  It is not rational.

I have heard them claim that the state, unlike god, really exists- you can see its effects all around you.  By that argument you could claim god really exists, too.  You can see churches and projects carried out in god’s name everywhere.  But god didn’t do it; people did.  And the state didn’t build those courthouses and jails; people did.  Evil, delusional people who believe in something unreal.  And kill unbelievers to prop up their god.  That is no better and no more rational.
