The tend to think that we are just as religious about our lack of belief as they are about their belief.
This couldn’t be farther from the truth, though it is a rehearsed and reverberated lie sold to the masses at length.
It is hard for many reasons, to be an atheist who is dating.
Mostly because we are seen as unfeeling, monsters who care nothing for morality.
Atheists are far outnumbered, and this makes dating other atheists a hard task at best.
So often atheists try to find non practicing or moderate Christians to date, and sometimes they just wind up falling in love.
(Unless they are Jews) The ontological argument fails.
The argument for design fails, the argument of god can’t be known fails. This leaves religious people with only fear and anger.
Like two different cultures, this can be hectic, straining, and sometimes quite impossible.
Especially when you hit the triggers, and the debates come on.
Spending time defending your lack of belief over and over can be daunting for even the best of us. These kind of people want to put us under the control of religion, siting every possible flaw in our life as the need to return to mindlessly following along the religious spectrum.
