    What are the most annoying rumors you hear time and time again about your religion?

    I'm an atheist and for me it would be that atheism is a religion or requires faith.

    "religion-a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, esp. when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs."

    Atheism makes no claims as to how life, the universe or anything got started. You can be an atheist and not believe in evolution or the big bang. Heck your answer could easily be 'I don't know, but I'm pretty sure there wasn't a God involved'.

    The most annoying thing about any religion is that each believes they are the only true religion and are willing to fight to the death in an attempt to prove their ridiculous claims.

    I understand your statement concerning how anything got started. You say, "I don't know, but I'm pretty sure there wasn't a God involved." If you don't know how it all started, then how can you be so sure that it wasn't done by God? I don't follow the logic. If you don't know then how can you say this is a true statement?

    The most annoying rumor about Atheists is that they are all arrogant snobs tha are too blind to realize a GOD.

    Wait a second!!!​

    I am arrogant
    I am snobbish
    I wear glasses
    I do not think there is a GOD


    So I can't call that a rumor now can I?:eusa_eh:

    Just because we don't know the answer doesn't mean we can't eliminate one possibility.
