So after reading an excellent read which I highly recommend, I would like to share the myths which really annoy me as an atheist. Because this list is solely my opinion, I predict some people are going to disagree with some on the list which is why discussion is to be had in the comments section. Maybe some of you have heard theists state a few of these myths (I guarantee you if you read the book you’ll definitely have heard plenty more).

Myths about Atheists are waaay more hilarious here in the middle east!
There's a myth about how atheist men sleep with their sisters and mothers, because they've got nothing to forbid them from that. Like, really? If Islam was the only thing keeping you away from incest, then you've got issues, guys!
