  • oh I like this one!



    but my for real answer... no.  It doens't scare me.  Someone elses choice has no bearing on me unless they are trying to force it on me... which I have never had happen.

  • Not at all. What on earth could an atheist possibly do to harm me? (Disclaimer.....I practice Buddhism which is often a home for agonistics, at the least, and more than a few atheists)

    I'm sort of scared of seagulls though.

  • Only the ones hiding under my bed.

    Are all your dust bunnies atheists, or do some of them have a little chapel by the headboard while the atheist ones hang out in the bar watching football at the other end?

  • No, I can't think of a reason why they do or don't scare me.
    Zealots on the other hand.................

  • No... I see atheists as firmly routed in reality, and very secure in their beliefs. I admire them!!

  • The only time I have seen them become "scary" is when someone is trying to tell them they are wrong or going to hell. Which begs the question....Who's the scary one? The one defending themselves or the one damming them???
