In other words, the Freudians contended that God was merely the projection of intense individual and unconscious desires. Thus, God was deemed to be nothing more than a wish fulfilment that ensued from the immature needs for protection and security. Scant credibility need be attributed to any denial of such interpretation, due to these wishes being...

An atheist believesthat since there is inconclusive evidence which point towards the supernatural, there is none.
