Nah, you're alright.

Remember, atheists are like herding cats.

Although this should probably be in another section. The moderators will take care of it. Smile

Makes sense. My cat is an atheist, too.

RE: The worst thing about being an atheist is...
When people say they will pray for me. Its the worst thing anyone can say when all I am needing is acknowledgement of my emotions, and perhaps some support. Do they really think that is going to make me feel better?

I think they often sincerely do. There is a guy on FB who also has cancer and we PM each other. He always ends with "You're in my prayers". I always wish him good luck. Does luck exist? I think not. But sometimes these are simply social graces.

This is the worst of it for me, except I would extend it to the whole of my family. To make it worse, I would be surprised if my mom doesn't already know.

The next worst would have to be watching people, especially those we know personally, work hard at something, achieve- or exceed- their goal, & ignore all of their efforts to thank a god that never made any tangible contributions. I have no patience for a worldview that abolishes all of the achievements humanity has, & can, produce(d).

Much in line with this - people who have a medical issue and doctors, nurses, and techs pull them though and the thanks go to an imaginary god. Seems to be a slap in the face for all the hard work, dedication, and scientific research done by real live people.

Absolutely! I have seen this very often. And the medical staff hate it!

You know what really sucks about being an atheist, 20 different babies in the refrigerator, and yet there's still nothing to eat.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?
