Goncourt is supposed to have once said "If there is a God, atheism must seem to Him as less of an insult than religion". When you think of it, that makes perfect sense. If I were God, I would be pretty annoyed at all these religions and sects preaching in my name and pretending they know who I am and what I want. I think that people who simply admit they don't and can't know anything about me would seem a lot less offensive to me.
