I started a thread on Google Plus about a video “Shit Christians Say to Atheists“, which is fun to watch but, in my opinion, is in no way complete, and somewhat pointless without recommended good solid responses, so I’ve linked the ones I have kinda responded to in previous posts and tweets, and added the first responses I’ve gotten. To be honest, some of them don’t even deserve a reply.

Fell free to add your own idiotic thing theists say to atheists if not listed, and contribute with a response in the comments if you feel so inclined.

So here we go:

      • “You will burn in Hell!”

    • “Evolution is only a theory” 

    • “But you say ‘Oh my God’! Somehow you must believe.”
    • “Wait! You’re an atheist? But you’re so nice!”
    • “Then, you believe in Satan?”
    • “It takes faith to be an atheist!”
    • “How can you stand life, without having the glory of god in your heart?” Answer: “I rather enjoy not devoting my life to praising something that lets me do all the work.” — G. Michael Williams
    • “Your life must be bleak and meaningless.”
    • “Something terrible must have happened in your life to turn you away from god.” Or its variation “Why do you hate god so much?”

  • “You were never a true believer.”
  • “Why are you so angry at god? God loves you!”
  • “Why do you hate God so much?”
  • “You’re just going through a phase.”
  • “Deep down, you really believe.”
  • “I don’t know about all that science stuff, I just know Jesus loves me and you too, if you’ll let him. It says so in the Bible.”
  • “Just wait till you have children of your own.”
  • “The bible is not meant to be taken literally.”
  • “Have you ever read the Bible?” Reply: Which one, the Catholic one, the Protestant one, the King James, the Vulgata? Most of the times leads to their protesting that theirs is the right one. — Harry Weseman
  • “What stops you from going on a raping and killing spree!?” 
  • “So why do you even bother to live?”
  • “If you don’t believe in god, who do you pray to?”
  • “You still believe in Jesus, though, right?”
  • “So you think you’re better than god?”
  • “You just think you’re an atheist.”
  • “Every knee shall bow. Every knee shall bow.” meanwhile I’m thinking “
  • “Once you understand the world better, you’ll believe, I’ll pray for you.”
  • “Why do you spend so much time arguing about something you don’t believe exists.”
  • “Just pray and Jesus will save you!”
    “I’m beyond saving.”
    “Everyone can be saved!”
    “I’ve committed the unforgivable sin.” Confusion on their face. “I’ve denied the Holy Spirit, look it up.” — G. Michael Williams
