Top 10 Things Atheists Are Tired of Hearing

Being an atheist is hard sometimes, especially when people tell you these things.
The Top Ten
1 You're a satanist!

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

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

There are many great atheists out there who have done wonderful things yet you call them the spawn of satan and somehow fred phelps is considered good to you

I don't believe in God, Satan, other gods, Jesus, Heaven, Hell, the Bible, and other religious books.

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

Our morals don’t come from a book to simply put it. Scandinavia, one of the most secular regions in the world, also happens to be one of the happiest, the most peaceful, and the most stable.

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.

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.

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

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

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.

There is no proof god exists either.

Neither can you.
"But the Bible says..."

4 You're going to Hell

Extreme (I said extreme, so only the people who say things like this) Christian logic: No matter how bad of a person you are, you will always go to heaven as long as you believe in God, and if you don’t, you will burn in hell forever.

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

That’s like telling someone who doesn’t play video games that zombies from Minecraft will attack you in your sleep if you don’t play/enjoy Minecraft.

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

5 What's stopping you from killing people?

On my remix list I simply replied to this entry "One word: Jail", and I feel like I need to clarify. If jail really was the only reason why I don't kill people, then I'm no better than the people who only don't kill people to avoid hell. The thing that is really preventing me from killing someone is a sense of morality, as morality is based off well being, and killing someone is immoral, as it would decrease well being. But basically, I'm not killing anyone, because I don't want to be killed myself.

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

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

Prison, execution, taking an innocent life.

6 Most of history's worst humans are atheists

Some of the greatest scientists of all time were atheists.

Actually most of history's worst humans were religious

Most of history's worst humans are religious, hows that?

Many amazing people are atheists too. Your point?

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

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

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.

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.

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

9 Why do you hate God?

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

10 Atheism is too edgy for me.

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

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).

12 You need Jesus!

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

Jesus take the wheel! *Car crashes*

Nah. I need myself.

You need logic.

13 Why are you persecuting us?!
14 Atheists who respect the personal beliefs of others are still terrible people

Justin Bieber fans who respect the opinions of others are still terrible people

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

15 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.

So rapists are angels compared to atheists?

16 Atheism is the worst religion

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

Atheism isn't a religion

It's not even a religion.

Atheism means the absense of religion.

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.

I don't. I respect Christians as long as they dont say stupid stuff like this.

Why do you mock Atheism?

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

Those are good books though.

I like the new BBC drama.
