What's wrong with being Atheist?

Kids at school make fun of me and say I'm gonna go to h3ll. I try to tell them that I believe what I believe and they believe what they believe but they still gang up on me. What's wrong? Please no mean comments

There is nothing at all with being Atheist, or Jewish, or Muslim or Christian, or Pagan or Buddhist.... small minded people will always find fault with something and kids are worse than most. Ignore them. And if they continue go to your principal and tell him you are being bullied on religious principals (theirs not yours) It is illegal.

Where did that start and what do you guys do
Report as
we do absolutely nothing and i think it was some guy who wanted to do something and they were all like "You have to put down your religion" and he was all like "I don't believe in anything" and they were all like "well you have to write something down" So he was all like "okay, i'm pastafarian!" and then it turned into a big thing......

Ramen Brother! Blessed be thy sauce. But, wasn't it that the state of Kansas had decided to teach creationism in schools along with evolution, and then a guy wrote a letter that if they include their religious beliefs in school, they should include his?

Nothing at all. Some people are raised to believe in that and that those who don't believe are going to hell. There are plenty of atheists who are rejected. I know in another country somewhere up in the mountains you can get the d3@th penalty just for being atheist. I know, it's that bad. People don't like us for some reason. But hey you're a good person and at least you don't need the thought of hell to be a good person

As long as what you believe in isn't hurting anybody else or yourself, there isn't anything wrong with it. I know a lot of atheists who tries to shove there belief down other peoples throats without respecting what they believe, and that is where it goes too far. Remember that you should be thoughtful of other people even if you don't agree with them

Nothing, it's your opinion and your belief. No one should be pushed into believing something they don't believe in. Don't let them bother you.

that makes atheism sound useless but i get your point. how can you be lacking beliefs when youre beliefs are what make one claim atheist?
Report as
No, it means "without gods". The only thing atheists have in common is lack of belief in gods.
Report as
Beliefs in gods. If you go to the dictionary you will get a better explanation. Realize that not all religions are about gods. Many in the East started with the respect or awe of natural forces. The error is to give thunder etc. a face and a statue.
Report as
You just said "without beliefs", which is untrue of atheists. We lack belief in gods.

And I don't need a dictionary since I actually know the original Greek- "a" means "without" and "theos" means "gods".

I am aware not all religions involve gods- there are several atheistic religions like Theravada Buddhism.
Report as
You are responding as if I am lecturing you. That is a problem with this media. Yes I said ¨¨without beliefs¨¨ and implied gods.

It's not you who is doing wrong. It's those kids.Tell them they are not supposed to judge, if they believe in God then He is the only judge.

Nothing, Red, but if the kids at school are make your life unbearable it might be better to stop talking about it till you're in a friendlier environment. Kids can be pretty brutal and will resent the fact that you've freed yourself of something that will probably shackle them for life.

Congratulations and good luck.

You are way better off than those kids. You are an especially intelligent young one to be so skeptical and those kids are bullies- they will probably serve you French fries in the future. There is nothing wrong with being atheist. There is however something wrong with racial discrimination- which is exactly what those kids are doing. You should find an adult you can trust and explain that you are being discriminated against. Show them this question and the answers if you have to get some ccourage.

Mark 12:28-31
New International Version (NIV)
The Greatest Commandment28 One of the teachers of the law came and heard them debating. Noticing that Jesus had given them a good answer, he asked him, "Of all the commandments, which is the most important"
29 "The most important one," answered Jesus, is this: "Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength."31 The second is this: "Love your neighbor as yourself."There is no commandment greater than these."

We are told that we are to love our neighbors, there is no unless they are atheist mentioned. With that said, I do pray you find what you need, and regain the relationship with The Lord. God bless.

I am sorry you perceive it this way. Me praying you get what you need is not me being passive aggressive. My convictions are out of sincerity. My hope for you is out of love, not hate. I do not pass judgement on you, I don't condemn you, I don't belittle you, I don't insult you, I simply wish the best for you. If you took it as any other way then I have failed to convey my true convictions, and I am sorry for that. God bless.

There is nothing wrong with you or with being an atheist. Those kids are judgmental, intolerant jerks.

I don't feel that there's anything wrong with it; we all have a choice. However I do find it unfortunate that some will miss out on the love of Christ and never know him (and to some they want it that way).

Listen to me, there nothing wrong with what you believe in or anything. You are still a human being like me and E V R Y O N E on this planet. I have atheist friends and friends who believe in god. I believe in him too. They both get along fine because they are also good and deep friends. Dont you ever let anyone bring you down. The more they try to bring you down the more stronger you will become in the future.

Nothing at all. If you get threatened, stand up for what you believe and don' get discouraged. What I recommend is being a logical smart@$$ to them. "You're going to Hell." "Tat's like me telling you you're going to freeze to death in the snowy forests of Narnia." Mix it up a little if you want, and have fun with it, because being a sarcastic smart@$$ is the FUN-IST thing in the world.
