Imagine that in the country Boz have half of the inhabitants one religion and the other half are atheists

The only religion has only one rule:
Say or write every day: "Thank you for the life; Creator"
The only saint is a mute girl who write it many times in a day.

Would you protest against it or convert them to atheism?
Or let it happen so long that everybody is happy?
What are your motivations to change it?
Are you hostile by the idea of a Creator God?
Do you think that your situation is better then the believers?

I would not protest against it, nor actively seek to convert people to atheism. My only motivation for changing it would be to share information I thought was true, or show why I thought other information was false.

I'm not hostile towards the idea of a creator god at all. My situation is better than some, and not as good as others, but that has little to do with what side of the fence they are on.
The problem, then, is that if subjective worlds are experienced too differently, there occurs a breakdown in communication. -- Philip K. Dick

There's a lot you're not telling us.

The religion only has one rule. Okay. What sort of culture springs forth from this religion?

You mentioned a creator. Did it only create human life, all life, or everything in existence? How does this religion's culture react when evidence begins to contradict or minimize its creator's role?

How do the faithful feel about the atheists?

Eh... I'm seeing to much at fault with this hypothetical. I wouldn't even think they're religious. Can or do they do more than just write that same message every day? Does anyone question it? Who teaches about the message?

But, going strictly with what has been presented, no, I wouldn't change anything. If that's all they do, it's not really doing anything to anyone, and it makes them happy. I'm not going to start a fire over something like that.

no, don't care enough to change anyone.

Or let it happen so long that everybody is happy?

ignorance is bliss. if someone wants to believe in jesus sky daddy, i don't care unless it somehow affects my life.

What are your motivations to change it?

if the faithful wants to impose certain restrictions upon my life due to their belief system, then change is needed.

Are you hostile by the idea of a Creator God?

hostile by the idea of god? no, hostile by stupid ideas, then yes.

Do you think that your situation is better then the believers?

not really better, maybe a little clearer and realistic.

No other differences and it is the Creator of the Universe(anything)
Some are crying but they still belief ;-)

How do the faithful feel about the atheists?
They are all survivors of a atheists country
They have other things to do because they have no rest day and there is a football match tonight.

I want to minimize the difference between believers en atheists.

No.
And the LORD said unto him, Who hath made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD?
