If you really believe...

Then serve god... (how?)

(serve god) Pizza!

You can even BURN THE BACON which, despite it's lack of kosherness, may please the nostrils of your particular god(s).

Multiple Names of God.

A monotheistic God evolved from the polytheistic nature (of gods) because the Gods had many names and titles for all of their works (e.g. storm, sea, sun, rain, death, seperation). Therefore, the Gods who were judges or the abortionist wagers of wars...

Some concepts of God are worth noting because they capture some ancient psychological truth.

» Hindu (Vedas). Agni (the sun, god of fire), Vayu (god of air), Surya (god of spirit, breath of life, or ghost - manifested in the birth water).

» Norse. Odin (the all-father), Freja (Athena), Balder.

Estimating the number of atheists is rather complex (e.g. "there is no simple answer). Some adults who describe themselves as atheists also believe in God (Pew Research Center). And some people who identify with religions (e.g., are Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, etc.) do not believe in God.

I have no concerns whatsoever either way. The real question is: "Do you believe in Pizza? (I do not.)
