Some people seem to not trust atheists, but where does this distrust of atheists and atheism come from?
It would be somewhat understandable if atheists were running around all willy-nilly eating babies and such, but we’re not different from anyone else.
Essentially, it may not even matter as long as no one is fundamentalist. We all go to work and have families, and the way I see the universe really has no weight in making a decision on what I do on a daily basis.
It has taken some people to actually meet an atheist and come to the conclusion. “Hey, he/she wasn’t that bad….They were nice and respectful.” So that means they had to have thought something negative initially, so where does that come from?
Are kids told anything about atheists growing up? Do some people simply look them up and think, “How is it possible to think this? Why would anyone think that?”
