Is there a polite way to co-exist with the religious?

Hey, thinkatheist. I always thought that being an atheist (or at least sharing the same beliefs as one) would get easier as I got older, in terms of co-existing with religious family and friends, but it's been the opposite. The more time passes the more I realize that the people around me have never accepted my concepts, but have probably just thought it was a passing phase. It's getting so (with family the most) that not a conversation can go by without the topic coming up and their spiritual…See More

"I think that sometimes you just need to broaden your horizons there are people out there with similar views to you but it's up to you to find them. Also I know it's extreme but there are places in the world that are less religious than…"

Hello again Chris. I have to tell u (sadly) I can count how many laughs Ive had recently and I cherish each opportunity to do so so Thk U for that! I laughed (with u) as I read ur latest post msg to me. Man do I relate. However talking to my "fam" is impossible. They are JW cultists...hardbodied. The have (and this isnt a jab) lost their ability to reason or compute logically. Very frustrating but since my dating and practically non-existent social circles are absent I keep my energies on my troubles and dont bother much with them or theirs if I can help it (which thkfully I can bcuz I dont live near them anymore). Thk god (lmao just a lil jokie joke...gotta laugh at this stuff sometimes or we will lose our freethinking minds).

Hello again Chris.

To go a step further, for me its more than "why don't you believe", as though I've rejected something (which in a way I have) but its bigger than that. I am not saying "get out", Im saying there is nothing to invite IN, or UN-invite, in the first place, except the belief of simple and sad minds that are too fearful to deal with life on life's terms. I may not like a given truth but I would rather deal with it than live in the dark.

What really irks me these days is wasting even one more precious second of the only life I will ever have listening to why I should believe this entity exists & why I should 'return' to some imagined being. Religion has done all the damage to my life I will allow. Any further damage will have to be done WITHOUT my consent.

I was lucky enough to grow up in a family of mostly atheists. Most of the trouble I run into is among friends and people I know from school. When I was in high school it was especially bad, to the point where people thought I was a devil worshiper or practiced voodoo because they didn't understand atheism. I have lost a few bible thumping friends, because I can't be near them without being told how much of a heathen I am, but I have also learned to avoid the topic.

Thanks, Chris! I agree, I can definitely relate to what I've read on your profile, especially your fear of the loss of logic. I also am relieved to finally have found a place where I can express my beliefs without being told I'm going to Hell. haha :)
