We are stubborn, want to sin and blind to the sight of faith. We are denialists who lie about what we know is true to justify our behavior. We are immoral and hopeless, an angry assembly of deviants. We are militant and hateful, a legitimate threat to society. We think we know everything and claim science knows the same. We know there can be no higher power because we treat ourselves as gods.
In truth atheists are simply unconvinced. Baseless speculation and accusations about the motivations behind the conclusion that atheists have drawn gets you no closer to understanding what atheists believe and why or demonstrating the truth of your religion.
If you want to know what atheists really think, just ask. It’s not hard and doing so will quickly clear up all of these myths. So the next time you are tempted to tell an atheist why they don’t believe or how we all behave, don’t.
