How do Atheists explain heaven and hell and the creation of Earth?
Heaven and hell are religious concepts with no supporting evidence; therefore, atheists don’t concern themselves with them. The creation of the Earth all began with the Big Bang. As molecular clouds collapsed into balls of plasma and formed stars, it’s believed that any matter that was cast off in the process got caught in the gravitational pull and coalesced to form planets. Keep in mind, of course, that atheists aren’t all scientists and astrophysicists, just as all religious people don’t have a Ph.D. in theology. Atheism is simply the lack of belief in supernatural beings … no more, no less. For the best answer on planetary formation, check out the science section.
