What are the drawbacks of being an atheist?
Def: 'someone who denies the existence of god'
Would you feel readily accepted by the believers? Would you miss the 'rituals'? Would you probably 'lose' your chance to go to Heaven?
for me , due to peoples beliefs in god, being an athiest means that my opinion gets me shunned by many people. i can't voice my opinion in many incidences as it can cost my company business and cause my kids to be ridiculed.
So true...not being able to voice your opinion does make a difference. Not everyone is respectful towards atheism.
I know how you feel nightwork. When people start forcing their beliefs on me I don't know what to do anymore and just stop listening.
I remember asking someone "why is your god real, but all the other's not?" and they nearly bit my head off.
The drawbacks of being an atheist is probably being hated by the majority. I don't think they understand that atheists are people who DO NOT believe in god, and they are not ANTI god. They just don't believe, they don't do the opposite of what your religion teaches. Geez when I try telling people that they get so worked up.
