Why the Believers Win

Who do you think is happier? This person,  or this person?  Since you don't know either of these people personally, it would be impossible for you to say for sure, but what if I asked you this?

Of the people you know, do the people that are more like the person in the first link appear to be happier the people who are more like the person in the second? 

It's interesting that the second person attempts to tie a child's belief in Santa Claus to an adult's belief in God, especially since religious people tend to be much happier than people who are not religious.

If that the ultimate goal of most human beings is to achieve a state of happiness, then, debate between atheists and believers is over.

    1. Not at all. Otherwise leftists would be happy. Very few of them are, and you can tell that they are unhappy by the way they act and the things they say. In fact, the way leftists act and their general emotional conditions, go further to prove my point than almost anything else.
