“Aren’t you scared you’re going to end up in hell?”

Why would I be scared of ending up in hell, if I don’t believe in it?

2. “How do you have morals, if you’re not religious?”

This one is concerning. Just because I’m an atheist doesn’t mean that I will wake up one day wanting to kill someone. I am human.

3. “You must have had a traumatic experience that pushed you away from God”

Not all atheists have traumatic experiences that have pushed them away from God! *eye roll*

4. “If you don’t believe in God, why are you always trying to talk about him?”

I write about being an atheist because I think it’s important that we live in a society that’s governed on rational and scientific reasoning.

5. “Atheism is a faith” or “Atheism is a religion”

Atheism is a lack of faith. It’s in the definition. Educate yo’self.

6. *the judgmental stare*

This one isn’t said, but you can tell what they mean. Some religious people act like you’re a heathen, just because you’re an atheist.
