“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.
