I find it annoying that people think we somehow choose atheism willingly simply because we want to.


The other one that I don't like is "atheism = immoral".


What about you?

My niece recently graduated from Marine boot camp at Parris Island, S.C. I went to the graduation exercise. The Marine corps band marched onto the field playing "Onward Christian Soldiers". After the "service", my niece showed me the small bible that she was given by the Marine Chaplin. My wife gave me that "just grin and bear it" look.

My biggest one is that because I "don't believe in anything" that means my view doesn't have to be respected. I've come across maybe two people in my life who displayed this behavior towards me in person, but it was enough to get my blood boiling. Also, these are people who won't tolerate any criticism towards their religion, friendly or otherwise. They expect people to revere their opinion as much as they do and tip-toe around their feelings. That's another thing I can't stand. The blatant hypocrisy. 

I personally don't mind the stereotypes, people will always use familiar terminology so I don't really blame them for that. What does annoy me is the response that since science does not know how the universe began, it must have been god. That one does become tiresome.
