Top 10 Things Atheists Are Tired of Hearing

Being an atheist is hard sometimes, especially when people tell you these things.

The Top Ten Things Atheists Are Tired of Hearing

1 You're a satanist!

This is just wrong - shadomatrix

An atheist does not want to hear that they are a completely different religion altogether. We don't even care about other religions. - EdGeinFan

That's exactly the same as Christians calling people of other religions Satanists when they don't believe in the devil. Hello Pan!

I hear this, simply way to much! Satanism, and Atheism are completely different! - RandomThings

2 If you don't believe in God, then how do you know what's right or wrong?

It’s what you do that people consider right and wrong plebs! - PhoenixAura81

Atheists can still be raised to tell the difference, and right and wrong is partially natural as newborns have been studied and the majority show to prefer kindness over unkindness. - Skullkid755

I don’t really believe in god because there is no evidential proof of god. We can’t determine that god is real by reading the Bible. So these people that are obsessed with religion are basically forcing people to believe in god. I have friends that are Islam, Catholic, and Christian and they are really nice. - SoloPotato

3 You can't prove that God doesn't exist!

And vice versa. - XxembermasterxX

No one can prove non-existence of anything - proof is "something", not "nothing". The statement "prove it doesn't exist" is really like an oxymoron and is nonsensical.

You really can't prove God is real, either. but, feel free to try. Oh, and don't use the bible, or anything pathetic please. - RandomThings

You can’t prove that God does exist either, and don’t say the bible because that proves nothing. - 3DG20

4 You're Going to Hell

It's even worse when they add in "Repent or burn, my friend. Repent or burn." - shadomatrix

Hell isn't real - ElSherlock

Atheists do not even believe in a Hell or Satan. When we die, that's it. There's nothing else to it. - EdGeinFan

People are so close minded these days - BreakFastBeast2005

5 What's stopping you from killing people?

Ironically, what stops me from killing people is me studying the lives and the mentality of killers themselves. - EdGeinFan

Because you don't need a bible to have morals. - Skullkid755

Oh I don’t know. Maybe the fact that most of us don’t think it’s okay to kill innocent people just because we don’t believe in something you do? - 3DG20

6 Most of history's worst humans are atheists

Fred Phelps says hello - shadomatrix

Actually most of history's worst humans were religious - DarkBoi-X

Most people in jail are religious. - WheresMyGuitarPick

Many amazing people are atheists too. Your point? - 3DG20

7 You're just an insensitive douchebag like everyone else!

Everyone else? I think that would include whoever says this. - Skullkid755

I don’t think religion affects people’s personality.

Not thinking something exists doesn’t make someone an insensitive douchebag, and there’s a reason we don’t believe in God, because there’s no real proof whether it’s real or not. - 3DG20

8 If you don't believe in God then why do talk about him so much?

We don't bring up God in a religious argument. Other religious people do that. - EdGeinFan

I don’t. I only talk about it on lists like this or when someone else talks about it. - 3DG20

9 Why do you hate God?

We don't hate God if we don't believe in him, we just hate those cults - JazzPunk


10 Atheism is too edgy for me.

Since when is Atheism edgy? I'm an Atheist, and I don't consider myself edgy. - WheresMyGuitarPick

The Contenders

11 You must think morality is subjective

People do have different morals so I guess it kind of is, but some things still are logically wrong (and other things are just grey). - Skullkid755

12 Why are you persecuting us?!
13 You need Jesus!

Nah. I need myself. - PhoenixAura81

Jesus take the wheel! *Car crashes* - SoloPotato

No, I need Buddha.

Thing is an atheist can believe in Jesus they just won't believe he's supernatural or the son of God. - Skullkid755

I wasn't talking to you I was talking to the people who think no belief in god means no belief in Jesus. - Skullkid755

14 Atheists who respect the personal beliefs of others are still terrible people

I respect personal beliefs in others and I'm not THAT bad. - PhoenixAura81

15 Atheism is the worst religion

Atheism isn't a religion - ElSherlock

It's not even a religion. - XxembermasterxX

Yeah! Just like not having sex is the worst sex position - InsanityJoe

Atheism means the absense of religion. - WheresMyGuitarPick

16 You're worse than all the murderers, robbers, and child molesters out there!

So not believing in something that has no real proof of it actually being real makes you worse than the reasons millions of innocent people have either been killed, robbed or molested? Nice logic. - 3DG20

Priests are religious though... - judo8alex

17 Why do you mock Christianity?

We don't mock Christianity. We just simply say God doesn't exist and move on with our lives. It's the Christians that have to tell us otherwise, but we won't change our minds. - EdGeinFan

I don’t. I respect Christians as long as they don’t say stupid s*** like this. - 3DG20

18 You probably read your kids His Dark Materials every night!

I like the new BBC drama.

Those are good books though.
