"Also, if you are an atheist who helps others then you are a fool."
When deciding how to live your life, most people (regardless of their religious beliefs) come to realize that the "Golden Rule" is a pretty good guide. The most logical and reasonable way to make the world a better place is to "treat others how you want to be treated."
There are many motivations that lead to this same conclusion:
- Make the world better for me
- Make the world better for my kids
- Make the world better for everyone
- Go to Heaven after I die
Isn't that last one just as selfish as the first?
