Only Atheists Will Relate to These 7 Things

Atheism is not a belief system, nor is it a religion. They may not believe in religious teachings, but that does not mean they believe in Satan either.

The freedom to think is what makes being an atheist preferable to being a theist. However, this does not imply that you should abandon your religious beliefs and become an atheist. After all, atheists are also humans, and there are certain things that atheists can relate to:

You don’t need religion to believe in humanity

You don’t have to be religious to show humanity, feel sympathy for the suffering, support the poor, or be kind to strangers. People should be concerned about developing a set of moral principles.

People assume you follow satan

Just because you don’t believe in God doesn’t mean you are against God. If that’s the case, then this should apply to you if you accept some parts of your holy book while rejecting others. On what basis do believers do that?

Having to explain to people that atheism is not a religion

Atheists are moral for the same reasons that believers are moral, as they have compassion and a sense of justice. However, atheism is not a religion, and calling it a religion implies that it is an assumption taken on faith rather than a conclusion based on evidence.

Easier life and less worry

Life is equally easy or hard for everyone. No gods dictate anything. One thing atheists are free from is the fear of doom, though. Theists, on the other hand, fear being punished and doing nice things to be rewarded.

They don’t celebrate religious festivals

While the rest of the world is celebrating religious festivals, atheists have no problem. Yet people are concerned about what atheists do to celebrate life.

Having to explain how you care for others without believing in God

Atheists are often questioned about how they are empathetic towards others without believing in a religion. Humans are social animals, and like other social animals, we evolved with some core moral values wired into our brains: caring about fairness, caring about loyalty, and caring when others are harmed.

Not given the right to not respect others’ religion

Generally, it is the majority that discriminates against the minority—and there are far fewer atheists than theists in those places in the world where there is discrimination. It’s discouraging and disheartening how the world trusts cheaters or rapists more than atheists.

Not ringing bell when visiting the temple

It’s not that atheists disrespect religion; it’s just that they’re not used to praying to God and are unfamiliar with the rituals for doing so in the temple. Religious folks, on the other hand, consider it inappropriate.

Religious groups discriminate against them

Being human requires us to find purpose and worth in our lives. You treat atheists as if they aren’t completely human just because they don’t believe in a divine creator. Planting different crops in the same field is a non-issue but bearing false witness can be pretty messed up.

Not believing religious teachings but being informed about religion

Atheists are also better-informed about religions even though they do not follow them. They read Geeta and the Bible, just like they read novels and watch Mahabharat, and they are well aware of such religions.

Not retaining any god-related posters or accessories

Religious folks have at least one religious poster in their home, and some even wear god-related jewelry. Atheists, on the other hand, can’t relate to this.

No fasting

When you don’t believe in God, there is no compulsion that you should stay hungry for a certain period to earn punya or to fulfill your wishes.

Don’t believe prayers will make wishes come true

Atheists have wishes because atheists are human beings and have human emotions. Yet, they can’t believe in random miracles, when the majority of prayers by the faithful go unanswered or are never fulfilled.
