God Likes Athesists

That is my opinion, even though I am not one. I base this opinion on the Christian Gospel, the place where Jesus says that god likes people to be hot or cold and nothing in between.

The athesist who is moral with no expectation of being rewarded for honesty and morality, must be in the highest regard in the eyes of god. The person in my personal experience who most exemplified such a person is Hans Bethe, professor at Cornell and Nobel Prize winner. When I worked at AVCO on ballistic missile defense, he was a consultant there. I had to present all my work to him. One time I had a dilemma. He solved that dilemma mathematically for me. So I got to know what a completely moral person was. It was not me, I admit.

As I have said before on this forum, scientific geniuses are so good that they can afford to be extremely honest. That is one reason that science works so well. The best scientists are completely honest and even humble, as they realize their own limitations. And so I cannot help but think that god is completely behind the scientific enterprise, even though it is personed by athesists for the most part.
