For believers, fear of atheists is fueled by a fear of death Skepticism about the existence of God is on the rise, and this might, quite literally, pose an existential threat for religious believers.

The thinking has gone, then, that believers deem atheists fundamentally untrustworthy because they do not accept, affirm and adhere to divinely ordained moral imperatives (ie, “God’s word”).

Vintage Alexandria: Streets That Tell Stories Alexandria was always considered the city of dreams and it was, it really was. With an ethnic diversity of Greek, French, Italian, Ladino, Arabic, and English inhabitants, Alexandria maintained its position as a cosmopolitan (by this meaning the period between 1850 and 1956) city and a legend of sorts, combining historical love stories and poetic influences alongside religious celebrations.

The aristocratic Sporting Club was one of the most prominent Moresque buildings.
