Amusing Responses You Got From People When You Came Out About Being An Atheist.

I thougt It would be interesting to see some of the more comical responses people have received upon coming out. I'll start things off with my favorite.

I was about 16 and a guy in class found out that I didn't believe in god and he came up to me and asked

Boy: "So do you really not believe in god"

Me: "No."

Boy: "So.... You worship the devil?!"

I got this one in one form or another many times..... Gotta love the bible belt! :)

That reminds me of my Facebook account, where I actually mispelled "athiest" on my profile. Nobody said anything, but I was sure embarrased a year later when I realized that.
Both of my parents are atheists from a Buddhist background, so I never had to deal with anything at home (I never 'came out', so to speak) but I sometimes get weird responses when other people find out. I was at a party one time and they were talking about religion, and when I told my friend I didn't believe that god or any supernatural stuff even made any sense they said, "I always figured you for a Moonie."
Me: I don't believe in god

Them: It's okay, he believes in you.

Me: Prove it.

Them: You're welcome to come to church and see for yourself.

Me: No thanks. (walk away shaking head)

Optional Answer: Why should I have to go SOMEWHERE to get an answer from something that is supposed to be EVERYWHERE?


Apparently these dips can't conceive the idea that something that is everywhere is actually NOWHERE.  [shrug]

About the worst response I have gotten when telling a christian that I am an atheist was;


"I am so, so sorry for you"!! :(


That person was my own Mom!

Pyriis, laughable, right?  haha
Well, when you stare at people while wearing Joker makeup, can you blame them for questioning your morals?
I don't think I ever really "came out". My friends and family just figured it out themselves. I didn't even know my little sister knew that I was an atheist until this past summer. We were in line for a ride and she says there was a book sale, so I go "Book sale? Where?" and then she goes "Well, it's a Christian book sale. As an atheist, you don't like that crap." And she proceeded to giggle. xD

And my friends really don't care. I don't really think many other kids my age care either. I was in a pissy mood one day, and one of the guys who had a locker beside me goes "I love Jesus!" and then the guy to the other side of me says "Me too!" So I said "Jesus isn't real." One of the guys goes "You don't believe in Jesus?! o:" And then my best friend comes up beside me and goes "She's an atheist. 8|" Never had a problem with them before or after that.
"No you're not!"

I was told "you don't believe, because you want to do what you want to do".  WHATEVER!

My sister who I had been close to, refuses to speak to me. I refuse to compromise and never hide it. All religion is EVIL. I'm a Buddhist but it truly is not a religion. Buddha didn't believe in god and the Dalia Lama does not either.
