The worst thing about being an atheist is...
I’m making this thread for anyone who wants to share what they think is the worst part about being an atheist.

To me, the worst thing is that the religious nuts have this smug self-satisfaction that one day (when we’re all dead) they will be proven right, and atheists will realize (while we’re burning in hell) that we were wrong. Laughat For all eternity we will cry, if only I had listened Sadcryface2

Atheists do not get that. We know when they die they are dead and will never learn that they were wrong because they are no longer in existence Weeping

There are some individuals that have made me, in my weaker moments, wish that there was just long enough of an afterlife for them to realize they were wrong. Or one in which the gods rewarded critical thinking and believers were just mocked forever for being so gullible.

If I had to pick the worst thing, it'd be knowing that I'm going to die not knowing all the things I'd like to have the time to learn and not having had time to do all the things I'd like to do.

On the other hand, the best thing is that I'm pretty certain I won't be stuck for eternity bowing and scraping to the immoral monster that is the Christian god, or any other god for that matter.

Atheism: it's not just for communists any more!

I sometimes miss the smug certainty of knowing I worship the right god, and the belief in cosmic justice, and the comforting, but insane, idea that praying for people is doing a positive action for them.

The worst part about being an atheist is how crazy-upset it makes some people in my family, so much that I have to limit my contact with them. An agree to disagree can be hard to achieve.

I think for me it was the realization that I would not see family and friends again in heaven.

Seriously...I think the worst things are the misconceptions that religious people have about us.

We have no morals or ethics.
We don't care about other people.

Things like that. They don't seem to realize that we are just like they are in many ways. Just people trying to live our lives.

The religious shit about not going to heaven and all that doesn't bother me a bit. It's all BS anyway.

When people hear "atheist" they think they have all the info they need. They have me all figured out.
