Hello from "How can you be atheist you're too nice?"
Hi internet!

Umm what can i say to introduce myself... I discovered and became atheist 2 years ago and finally found something where I thought "This makes sense, this answers all (by that I mean most) of my questions with no contradictions and honesty about what is known and unknown."

My family and friends are theist, but not just regular theists, the kind of theists who say "Even Satanists are more likely to go to heaven than you because they at least have faith in something" (I don't even know how to begin to respond to that without laughing).

I have only ever met one atheist in the flesh and my friends hate him because he's atheist but love me because I'm just confused (was the double standard ever more obvious).

Anyway hope to meet new people, debate and become more educated almost by speaking to other atheists. And I look forward to exploring the forum. Wink

yes indeed nice in the stab your back way, but of course in the sincerest way.

You'll be having fun here and maybe gaining a bit more contempt for your situation when thinking about better ones.

Welcome to the forum.
Make yourself at home.

In regards to your friends , maybe they think you are still a theist as you were before but now you are confused because you are questioning your faith.
The other atheist they don't know , so the only identity they can assign to him/her is non-believer so someone who rejects their personal beliefs. I think it's not a double standard if they haven't come to terms with your atheism yet.

Atheism is a religion like OFF is a TV channel !!!
