Can Atheists be Good People?

A very common question that is asked by skeptics is “Do you think that all atheists are bad people?”. My answer to this is simple.

Below are 4 points that prove the "finiteness" of the universe. It would not logically make sense. (example#1) It takes Mars almost double the days the earth takes to orbit the sun (let's just say double for simplicity). If the universe was infinite then the earth has orbited the sun an infinite number times, and mars has orbited the sun an infinite number times and although logically the earth should have double the amount of orbits, it would be equal to mars if the univer
