Do you think being an atheist makes one stronger, weaker or that it doesn’t effect their inner strength and will to live?

good on them but when they die will their soul just be stuck on earth and roam the world. it makes them look strong because they dont need to depend on something to help boost them up.
I don’t think religion effects someone’s health (mentally physically emotionally)if that is your faith/belief and if you believe in it wholeheartedly and follow it then you shouldn’t have issues but science still exists your mental health will be impacted by stuff physical etc
not inherently, but the ability to question and challenge everything without religious ideologies in the way of forming a grounded and unbiased opinion is important especially rn w/ the way society & social media is shifting backwards into bs puritan ideologies n masking it as “spirituality” which is really, really scary
I think it makes your moral character stronger because you don't believe in instant redemption just because you ask for forgiveness. No, instead you face the consequences of your actions and atone as best you can.
Doubting the existence of gods, and more importantly....questioning organized religion...is just exercising free will.
It might bring strength of character and show conviction to take a clear stance on either side of the issue.
But questioning anything and everything is healthy, as long as it doesn't consume the entire existence of a person.
There is weakness in the desperate need to believe...whether out of hope for reward, or as a crutch...just as many find strength in it.
Anything can be spun in a negative direction.
