The correspondent was blunt: “Why don’t you atheists just go out and kill yourselves right now?”

For the same reasons our ancestors didn't....all the way back to the first creature that ever had the capacity to kill itself but didn't. Suicidal species have a tendency to go extinct. Stop me if I'm getting too technical. :-)
