Better to be an Atheist than believe in those scam called Christianity and Islam.

Be rest assured that you re of the very few reasonable people who have refused to believe that men from the Middle-East re re Prophets to Africans grin grin grin #OutrightFoolishness. Believing a man in the middle east died for your sins in Africa

Op if you're gonna be an atheist, how about you relocate to the forest and wait for whatever you believe in to actually feed, clothe and accommodate you?

I mean if you're gonna be in your parents house, you gotta live by their rules.

Duh?!

Since you are under their umbrella, just be careful with them.
Perhaps when you gain freedom maybe while in the higher institution continue with your choice of life after all what matters in life is morality and religion is not morality in totality.

Make your choice as soon as you gain your freedom

Wishing you Success in your decision

Re: My Parents Are Treating Me Bad Because I'm An Atheist- Anonym0us by Greenbullet(m): 1:57pm On Jul 17, 2016
You're an atheist and
your batshit insane parents don't seem willing
to accept your beliefs. In general, there can be
a lot of tension between kids and their
parents, and I know for sure it doesn't help
when you disagree on something with as much
gravity as religion. But parents are important
people in your life whether you agree with
them or not, and I hate to say it, but they still
control pretty much everything you do. Right
there, I know, you want to rebel and do
something to prove me wrong. My first piece
of advice is don't do anything stupid out of
anger. Don't go getting drunk or high just
because your parents are ignorant, you'll only
hurt yourself. Do you really want to give them
the ability to sway your emotions like that?
It's really more rebellious to just brush it off.
Don't let them affect you in negative ways.
Now, at some point, you're going to have to
approach your parents if you want to be
accepted by them. So, let's talk about that
inevitable meeting. STAY CALM. No, really, no
matter what they say or do or whatever poo
they spout, stay calm. Do not lose your
temper. This is very important for many
reasons--mainly, it will make you seem less
childlike. Also, if you can truly avoid anger,
you'll be able to speak more rationally and
your points will be clear and accessible. Anger
clouds your judgement and you'll likely say
something you regret or something that'll
screw up your relationship with your parents.
That's the last thing you want. No matter how
your parents treat you, it's important to keep
at least a decent relationship. After all, they're
still important. You see them every day,
probably. You're forced to be around them. It's
so much easier to bear if you and your parents
get along. So, whatever you do, try to be the
bigger person. Try to be the one that's
accepting, try to love them, even if the feelings
aren't returned yet. Chances are, if you can
show your parents that you can love them and
appreciate them despite your differences,
they'll see that they can love you too.
However, if things go wrong and your parents
simply will not accept you, just remember that
once you hit 18, you can get out of there. You
can drop communication with your parents
forever, if you want (although I don't advise
this at all--please try to remain on good
terms with your parents, you will most
definitely regret it if you're the one who
destroys your relationship). Most of you are
probably in your teens, so it's really not that
long of a wait. Just stay strong, and if it's
really bad at home, seek refuge at a friend's
house. Also remember that this page (and
others) are always here and you can contact
us at any time. We're eager to help you get
through whatever poo happens. (I've left my
own email address below if you want to talk
with me personally). Now, down the road, if
you left home with a bad relationship, be
willing to forgive. If your parents try to patch
things up, be open and warm. However, let
them know that you don't want a relationship
if they can't accept who you are. In time they
may accept you, or they may not. Just don't
hold a grudge.
Let's move on to those of you with friends or
coworkers who don't accept you. Luckily, you
can choose your own friends, so if they really
won't come around, then you're not obligated
to be their friend. Although if you want to
make a friendship work, you're going to have
to approach the person. The same advice as
above holds true here: stay calm. In situations
like these, avoid discussing the religion itself
or god. Leave the theology out of it. Simply let
them know if they don't accept your personal
beliefs, you don't want to hang around with
them anymore. However, remember to be
accepting yourself. If your friend is religious
and you're not, don't mock them and don't try
to disprove god at every turn. If theology is
something you can't talk about without
arguing, just don't talk about it at all. Agree
to disagree and move on.
If you have a religious coworker who
constantly bothers you about religion (or
anything, really) often you can talk to your
boss and they can talk to the other person.
Things become tricky if your boss is the
religious one--you could try to talk to his
boss, and so on. If that doesn't work, again,
you'll have to approach the person. Tell them
not to bother you about it. If you can, just talk
about work. Don't get angry, ever. Ignore their
taunts. Focus on getting work done and
hopefully they'll follow your lead.
No matter who you have to deal with,
remember to be calm and accepting. Set an
example for the other person and be willing to
forgive.

You should understand thier pain its not thier fault, lemme give you an idea of how they feel, its like your only son whom you're expecting grand kids from deciding to become gay or celibate, without taking into consideration how his choice will affect you, in as much as its your choice you should not be selfish and think of how your decision will affect others.

When will you people realise that you don't have to belong to any religion before you believe in God? That you don't feel inclined towards any religion does not mean you are an atheist.
Like I told someone that brought his problem here about being an atheist or not, you guys should learn to keep your issues to yourself please. Nobody can decide or help you in matters like this. Your same mind that didn't feel inclined towards any religion should be able to help you in this matter. It does not concern us!

What's wrong with all these idiöts claiming to be atheists? You don't believe in God, yet you can't do without coming to religion section, life must have been difficult for you?
You are trying to convince yourself that there's no God, but deep inside you know we are all under a powerful upper hand, you're obsessed with both Christianity and Islam, you abuse people that pay their offerings and tithes, you call them names...

Nobody is asking you to believe in God but spewing rubbish in a religion section is a shameful act.

Thank you.

They are probably treating you bad because they want you to turn back from the crooked road and walk on the straight path..
why would anyone be an atheist in the first place when it is a glaring fact that God exists.. besides it is better to live believing there is God and die realising there 'isn't' than to live believing there is none and die to find out there is!.
I advice you go on thorough research as your hereafter depends on it. Ignorance is not an excuse before God.
