Well, what exactly is a real christain? I've never sensed God, and I'm convinced that if he was real, the world wouldn't be like this. I don't pretend to know all the answers, but why would God keep knowledge out of our reach? Is he afraid we'll learn the truth? In the garden of eden, God punished humans for the pursuit of knowledge? Would you rather know good and evil, or be obsequious yes men to God? I can't imagine a God that you describe would want that. If it's within God's power to rectify the ills of this world, what's he waiting for? All the evils that exist in this can't be attributed entirely to free will.

As far as atheists being rebels against God, that's clearly a Christain point of view. I don't associate the devil with science.
