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!

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

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

Whoever says this clearly doesn’t know what an atheist is. It means we don’t believe in anything, including Satan. - 3DG20

2 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

3 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.

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 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

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

5 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

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

6 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. - 3DG20

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

7 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

8 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

No, I need Buddha. - Redrocm

9 Atheism is too edgy for me.
10 If you don't believe in God then why do talk about him so much?

Um we don't want to. - DarkMatter1997

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

The Contenders

11 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

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

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

12 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

13 Why are you persecuting us?!
14 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

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

15 Why do you mock Christianity?

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

16 Atheism is the worst religion

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

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

Those are good books though. - Redrocm
