Top 10 Atheist Stereotypes That Are Not True

The Top Ten

1 We Are a Product of the Devil

Atheists aren't that. Some are Satanists, but that does not mean they worship the Devil and are a product of the Devil. Satanism is only the belief that God doesn't exist and Satan is a representation of an existing being.

If You think Athesits are worst than Neo-Nazis, Satanists (People who worship Satan), and SJWs, Then You Have Seen Better Days.

I am a Christian and I believe that everyone should be allowed to follow (or not follow) whatever religion they want. It doesn't matter if your Muslim, Hindu, Christian or Atheist. You are not the work of the devil. You are allowed to have your own opinion. The world is meant to have different beliefs. There is no way to change that. Some Atheists are actually very kind.

2 Atheists Are All Mean

I am a Christian and I do not believe this. Heck, I have a friend at school who is an atheist! Besides, the religious people saying atheists are mean jerks are really being the mean ones! I decide to leave atheists alone as long as they respect my religion and its people. More Christians like me are needed.

Top 5 Most Hypocritical Statements

But seriously, we do not need a book to know between right and wrong.

I'm a Christian and I DO NOT BELIEVE in this crap. Most Atheists people are actually quite nice.

Say what you like but don't bully someone if they have a religion.
Religious people are more of a victim nowadays because of terrorists since 9/11, banning Harry Potter books, Chick tracts, believe abortion is murder, what some religious women wear nowadays. Even in the past we had the killing "witches".
But not every religious person is crazy or will murder. They are polite like atheists.

3 All Atheists Are Nerds

Almost all nerds that I met are CHRISTIANS

I'm not a nerd but I like science

In the old days nerd was an insult, same with geek.
Now its for know-it-all's.

Well Atheist's are smarter

4 We Are People Haters

Or if you really want to see "people filled with hate" just go on a christian clip on YouTube and share that you don't love Jesus. For the record, I know it's not all of you.

Usually it's religious who hate people for certain things such as their sexually or their race.

If you are an atheist and you think this isn't true, just go on an atheist clip on YouTube and pretend to love Jesus, then wait for replies... you'll see why many people think you are filled with hate. (for the record, I know it's not all of you)

Actually, I love a lot of people

5 Atheists Are Atheists Because They Are All Autistic

Not all autistic people are atheists and not all atheists are autistic

Not true! My brother and I are both Christian and we both have Autism.

This is insulting to atheists and autistic people. There is nothing wrong with being autistic or atheist. People need to learn to respect opinions.

Who the hell came up with this idea?

6 We Are Conspiracy Nuts

So true. Tons of people think Atheism is just believing whatever stupid idea you think of, but it's really believing in facts that have been almost completely proven true, unlike religion.

This is ironic, considering a lot of christians believe in the new world order

I don’t even follow conspiracy theories, even though I know a couple that most likely aren’t true.

I like conspiracy theories, but I don’t think they’re true

7 They Hate Christians

As a BLACK ATHEIST, I respect Christians, Muslims, Jewish, etc. but the one thing I do not like the most is when people force the Atheist community to convert. Personally forcing someone to be religious just gets out of hand too quickly

Not sure what to say here. As an atheist myself, I can confirm that I despise Christianity as a whole. But feel mixed on the people that believe in it. I don't mind people that can accept Christianity has its faults. But I hate the people that act like it's a perfect religion with no negative qualities at all. Overal mixed on the people as a whole.

Well, not exactly hating, but they are supposed to just stay out of religious topics. They were the ones who made bibles not in hotel rooms, when you can just not look at it, they were the ones who forced religious teaching out of schools, when you should be able to CHOOSE. Life should not be forced upon you, it should be a web of choices, but when you force things upon people, children, that should be allowed to make their own choices to be atheism, it is not a good thing. You say you are the lack of religion, but you are the religion of no god. If there is no God (which there is), then so be it. But if there is, you are screwed, and let someone else go to heaven. Leave people alone, and you will be fine, everyone is happy. So, people think that Christians are the ultimate hypocrites, but think. Don't be a hypocrite yourself.

We are supposed to stay out of religious topics? You think you have the right and only right to impose and choose your opinions? If atheists don't agree on your topics about religion, they have equally the right to say opinions and be against it if they don't agree on the many stupid things you are believing ( like saying that we are screwed. ). You say that life should be a web of choises and opinions but you say at the same time that we have to stay out of topics. That's a strange paradoxal thing to say, don't you think? I don't hate Christians because I'm open to debate and share opinions without insulting but it seems that you are against everybody who doesn't follow or agrees on your opinions. Looks very hypocrite with hate inside your mind to me!

8 We Are Prejudiced

Christians aren't? They hate homosexuals. Hitler was a Catholic. KKK is Christian. Bible says slavery is Okay.

This is a controversial one. In Yank-land (The United States of Arsewipes) for example, you ARE treated like a criminal, but this is bull if you live in the United Kingdom. I'm atheist (a man of science), and trust me, it's much easier being one 'ere in the UK.

9 We Don't Believe In God Just Because We Want to Do Whatever We Want

Just because we don't believe in god doesn't mean that we don't have ethic conceptions on moral. Religious people are always talking about their free will that god give them ( isn't that a hypocrite way of saying that they can do anything they want also? ).

I don't believe in a higher power because I never even heard of one until 5th grade when some random kid asked me what religion I was. I was super confused and did research and stuff.

Thank you parents for not being religious.

I agree on that part of their free will. It's really hypocrite because when they're doing something wrong they will ask forgiveness at god just to have a clear conscience afterwards.

This is offensive on so many different levels

10 We Have No Morals

This is an argument that stems from religion. This is false, as evidenced by the many extremely moral people such as Bill Gates, the or one of the richest atheists in the world, nearly eradicating Polio from the world and donating millions to charity.
On the other hand, there is the argument that Atheists steal their morals from Christianity.
Those people obviously haven't read the bible from how much it justifies genocide.

Having morals is not an exclusive religion thing. Morals have to do with ethics and is part of philosophy. Many philosophies who doesn't believe in the existence of a god or gods treats questions about ethics and morals. You don't have to believe in a god or be religious to have conceptions about morals. As a matter of fact, morals of atheist are more realistic and are usefull for everyday life.

Morals are nothing but common sense. We never stole any morals from Christianity in the first place either. We just lived like normal people except without religion, and we don't commit crimes.

Um yeah, religion doesn't have a monopoly on morality to put it mildly.

The Contenders

11 All Atheists Eat Babies

Since when is atheism related to cannibalism?

Well, mostly it's true. For example I'm atheist and it is my favorite dish!

I'm laughing now

That is one of the most dumbest stereotypes I've ever heard!

12 We Want to Corrupt the Youth

I think they are corrupting them. It’s like teaching helpless young one on how to loose hope and humanity

Youth gets corrupted by lots of things. Most religions actually play a part in corrupting youth by asking many youths to convert to their religion, through some convincing argument or otherwise. Freedom of expression is something that some Christians fail to keep moderate.

We only want to express our opinions, and it has often gone to change the world, like religion has. It makes me proud of being an atheist.

Christians corrupt children as soon as they are born. Saying if you do certain things you are going to hell. What if a 11 year old wants to be atheist?

13 Atheists Do Not Celebrate Christmas or Easter

But those words are not written in the Bible.
Jesus birth date was made by the church, it's not written in the Bible.
He also has two birth dates either 25th December and Summer time (unknown day/month)
Christmas is based on many older holidays Saturnalia, Germanic Winter Solstice and Yule.
Easter is based on an older holiday Ostara which is about fertility.

I celebrate both of those holidays despite my atheism, but they are fun to celebrate.

They do, just because of the secular culture of those two events.

Christmas and easter are a pagan holiday

14 We are Reasonable

Yes we are definitely reasonable people. We don't just use God as an excuse to do something that is bad, like those guys from ISIS for example.

Not most of the Christians I have met. Very judgmental. That is at least 90% of Christians I have met. Even had one scream in my face because I don't believe in god

Religion and being reasonable aren’t linked plebs! It depends on personality.

Christians are reasonable as well, I fail to see the point

15 Because we are Atheists, it is Selfish of us to expect Presents on Christmas and Easter

When you say "Easter" what comes to many, if not most people's minds is not Jesus, it's bunnies and eggs and chocolate. When you say "Christmas," what comes to lots of minds is not Jesus, it's Presents and Santa and Family. What I mean by this is that these are not religious holidays any more, but rather fun days to spend with family and friends. I am an Atheist, but I celebrate both of these holidays.

I'm an atheist too and I celebrate both of these holidays not because of religion but because of the fact that it brings people together. You don't have to be Christian to spend time with the people you love

No one knows what the original Bible was, the King James Bible was written 1500 years after Jesus died. All these holidays might not be Christian if they aren't in the original Bible.

I don't celebrate Easter. Christmas is a family holiday to me. I get presents, but I give presents too

16 Atheism is Related to Communism

Only in North Korea and Kim Jong Un brainwashed everyone to think he is a God and can control the weather. (that's why religion is illegal in North Korea probably)

Go back to the 1960s; this is not your show.

17 Atheists are Really Attractive but Slightly Homosexual

Sexual preference does not correlate with Atheism. But I feel pretty gay though..

Slightly homosexual? You are either gay or you are not.

Where do you get this information?

Not really that true.

18 All Atheists are White Men

There are plenty of White Men in the world who are NOT ATHEISTS at all.

All women should be an atheist because god hates women

I'm female and I'm atheist

I'm an atheist and I'm a white WOMAN. Also, Neil degrease tryson is not white and he believes in evolution

19 We Are Close Minded

Prove to me that God exist then. There is no reason to believe he existed.

Well, Atheists aren't very open-minded. They do not believe in an invisible, inexplicable existence right? Okay...what about a little thing called love? Or the air we breathe or the private thoughts of others? All invisible and inexplicable and yet we never question their existence. So why not believe in God?

I think that Christians are close minded. Atheist are open to accept new facts or discoveries in science whatever that may be.

So the fact that the majority of this group of people has changed their beliefs means they are Close Minded? Yeah, this doesn't make sense.

20 All Atheists Drink Blood, Draw Pentagrams with Blood in Their Room and Perform Satanic Rituals in Their Basement Every Night

A pentagram is also a Pagan/Wiccan symbol and they have nothing to do with Satan they don't believe in something from another religion...Christians confuse their God the horned one with "Pan" who was hijacked from the Christians like every Christian holiday and the Bible stories.
Its ok Christians Hitler stole a Buddhist symbol and I think he stole the goose step.

You should not confuse atheism with satanism.

THAT STEREOTYPE IS DISGUSTING!

Atheists don’t believe in Satan.

Finally! Someone who gets it! My grandma is forcing me into Christianity and had the nerve to say I would go to Hell if I didn't believe The Bible. Very rude, and one of the reasons I became Atheist: Because I don't want to be part of a religion that is discriminatory toward other religions. - YaYeeat

21 They Are the Thought Police

So stupid! It's more likely the other way 'round. We don't have laws written in a book thousands of years ago by some stupid people that we follow and preaches to everyone.

22 They Love to Start Arguments With Christians

In a sense, we don't. We just say something regarding our non-belief and some Christian gets offended by our comment.

If it's on philosophy why not? The fact is that Christians can't discuss other opinions because their minds are stuck in a philosophy ( their religion ) that is stucked since thousands of years.

I'm a Christian and I don't agree with this!

Not all of them do!

23 Atheists are Sadistic

The creator of this list is sadistic

80% of these I didn't put on here. Actually I'm a nice considerate person and a pacifist. All sadistic people I've seen are all religious. I'm an Atheist. - westofohio

24 They are SJWs

I’m an atheist and I cannot stand SJWs!

25 Atheists are Neckbeards

Whats a neckbeard?
