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

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

We just use common sense that's all. - DarkMatter1997

2 You're a satanist!

We don't even believe in the devil. - DarkMatter1997

Satan derives from religious tales, atheists don't believe in any religions. I rest my case. - CloudInvasion

I don't believe in God, Satan, other gods, Jesus, Heaven, Hell, the Bible, and other religious books. - PhoenixAura81

I’m not even an atheist but I hate it when people say this. Don’t atheists not believe in anything?

3 What's stopping you from killing people?

We believe that our current lives are all we get. If we murdered someone then our only shots at life would be ruined by spending all our time in prison. Enough said. - DarkMatter1997

Common sense. And law. - CloudInvasion

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

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

Religion doesn't define personality. That's like saying all Christians are homophobic. - CloudInvasion

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

I'll admit I started off pretty douchey when I first started out but I really do regret it. I'm actually a pretty nice guy in real life once you get to know me better. - DarkMatter1997

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

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

You can't prove that he exists either. I'm JUST saying. - DarkMatter1997

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.

6 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

I'm pretty sure morality is objective, whether you're theistic or not. - DarkMatter1997

7 You're Going to Hell

3 good responses -
1. Why should I believe you?
2. You too I guess. Didn't realize that God was picky with who he sent to heaven. :(
3. I'm on the highway to hell! Da-da! - Skullkid755

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

All because I don't believe in anything supernatural? Stuff that hasn't been proven to exist? - DarkMatter1997

Priests are religious though... - judo8alex

9 You need Jesus!

How about I don't want Jesus (I honestly don't feel comfortable giving my heart to some random guy I've never met. I'm just saying and I'm not trying to offend). - DarkMatter1997

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

Jesus needs me. - judo8alex

10 Most of history's worst humans are atheists

They may have been, but most of history's villains have claimed to be religious too. There's evil people everywhere no matter what you believe. - DarkMatter1997

Some of the greatest scientists of all time were atheists. - PhoenixAura81

The Contenders

11 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

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

Um we don't want to. - DarkMatter1997

13 Atheism is too edgy for me.
14 Why are you persecuting us?!
15 Why do you mock Christianity?
16 Atheism is the worst religion
