What if Creationists were Athiest for a day?

What if Creationists were Athiest for a day?
I saw a title on a Darkmatter2525 video and thought to myself what if he had a point.

What if theists became atheist for a day. They don't have to offend god. Just don't do anything religious and research things like evolution and the big bang, natural selection, etc.

So I challenge you creationists to become an atheist for 24 hours. It would be lovely.

RE: What if Creationists were Athiest for a day?
I'm sure if some creationists were going to try to be atheists for a day, they'd turn into crazy assholes. Because they think if there's not judgment after death, then why show any restraint? Not that many things considered sins have anything to do with atheism. I didn't become a drug addled, physically abusive nihilist when I left the church.

Honestly it wouldn't be hard to be an atheist for a day. Just go through your life without thinking about, or praying to, whatever god you worship. Simple as that.

Good video to watch, if you want to know how common the Jesus story really is.

I know, but some theists might feel awkward about it first but then they'll see through the fallacy of god eventually.

Hopefully.

To be a "martyr" of Christianity.

Not all, but most Creationists wouldn't be able to do that if they tried. The same could be said about most Atheists, if they performed this test in reverse. While the beliefs (and/or lack thereof) are worlds apart, the commitment is somewhat similar. For example: That silly feeling you get after reading the Book of Genesis is the same feeling a Creationist would get after studying the Theory of Evolution. We'd both feel it's complete nonsense, and wouldn't take it seriously enough.

Well you know... most atheists were once creationists but I yeah. At least we try to understand the bible or holy books.
