Top 10 Atheist Stereotypes That Are Not Truewestofohio
The Top Ten
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. - Psychedelic_Madness
I rather be a ruler in hell than a servant in heaven.
You would rather rule over literally the worst place ever than be a servant in the best place ever... - GrimmShady
Over-religious people act like atheists perform a giant satanic ritual in their second floor bathroom every Sunday.
Can someone explain if there's a Christian stereotype list similar to this? - AlkadikceV 5 Comments
I don't care about religions, I have nothing to do with religions..Simple, No idea how one's belief can make one mean...I think people argue about it a lot..Which is futile and stupid. - Ananya
Atheists are not mean. Look at the countries with the most atheists. They are in the most peaceful and friendliest countries. - InfernoTopTenners
We're not mean, or racist, we just believe in science and facts, and logic, religious people can say whatever they like but we can't without being called mean
More mean Christians than atheists - westofohioV 5 Comments
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.
Almost all nerds that I met are CHRISTIANS - RoseCandyMusic
Nerds are usually smarter.V 2 Comments
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. - KilljoyWithAPen
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)
Did you just assume my species?
Just because I can type, speak like a human, wear clothes (Umm large clothes) and walk on all fores doesn't mean I'm a human. I could be a monkey for all you know! Ugh, gotta hate those species-assumers! - Puppytart
This is insulting to atheists and autistic people. There is nothing wrong with being autistic or atheist. People need to learn to respect opinions. - _randomperson_
Who the hell came up with this idea? - PositronWildhawk
I don't know who said that but if this came from religious people I can say for sure that I'm proud to be an atheist!
Atheism and autism, two terms that really shouldn't be thrown around as insults. - CloudInvasionV 8 Comments
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 - Caleb9000
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!
To be fair, Christianity has been a horrific faith throughout history. They worship God way too much and have actually attempted to convert others to their cause way too much. You can just observe this happening in America or in Europe even.
At least with atheism you just ignore the idea of god and know that he won't help you in anything, and nothing really changes. I hate Christians because I know how much I've been asked to convert to Christianity in public. - EdGeinFan
I'm atheist and I respect other's religious beliefs!V 9 Comments
Christians aren't? They hate homosexuals. Hitler was s Catholic. KKK is Christian. Bible says slavery is Okay. - westofohio
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.
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. - EdGeinFan
Um yeah, religion doesn't have a monopoly on morality to put it mildly. - truckturnerV 3 Comments
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
Since when is atheism related to cannibalism?
This is what your reduced to accusing us of...really? - RustyNail
Well, mostly it's true. For example I'm atheist and it is my favorite dish!
That is one of the most dumbest stereotypes I've ever heard!V 7 Comments
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. - EdGeinFan
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. - PositronWildhawk
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 wats to be atheist? - westofohio
WE corrupt the youth? Religions corrupt the youth. the make them believe in a promise land that is almost impossible to get to by some standards. Religion to me is just an act of brainwashing. - RustyNailV 4 Comments
They do, just because of the secular culture of those two events.
Christmas and easter are a pagan holiday
I'm an atheist and I like Christmas...
Christmas = fun
Easter = I'm a chocoholic.
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 - westofohio
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. - EdGeinFan
Christians are reasonable as well, I fail to see the point
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 - westofohioV 1 Comment
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)
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.
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? - Britgirl
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.
No we aren't...Actually, Totally the opposite of that - AnanyaV 2 Comments
In a sense, we don't. We just say something regarding our non-belief and some Christian gets offended by our comment. - EdGeinFan
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.
Not all of them do!
I swear that most of these stereotypes probably stem from theamazingathiest - RueV 1 Comment
Slightly homosexual? You are either gay or you are not. - Rue
Where do you get this information? - RustyNail
YEP THIS ONE IS TRUE I'm NOT AN AETHIEST.
To be honest, this is dumb.
Whats a neckbeard?
The creator of this list is sadistic - Ihateschool
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
All women should be an atheist because god hates women
I'm an atheist and I'm a white WOMAN. Also, Neil degrease tryson is not white and he believes in evolution
False, many can be Christain, Jewish, and even Muslim. - Rue
There are some LGBT people are not Atheist.
That's like saying all Catholics are Nazis.
You should not confuse atheism with satanism. - EdGeinFan
