Or, alternatively, “Wouldn’t it be safer to just believe in god so you won’t end up in hell?”
Response #1/ I don’t believe in hell, so I’m not afraid of it.
As an atheist, it is hard if not completely impossible to believe in things that require such beliefs without proof. If I don’t believe the Bible is the word of god, don’t believe that Jesus magically cured people of otherwise cure-less ailments, and don’t believe in heaven, why would I believe in hell? Logic says I wouldn’t. And because I don’t, I’m not afraid.
