Atheists Do Not Reject God

Christians refuse to understand atheists. They accuse atheists of rejecting god, as if atheists believed Yahweh the god existed, but despised him and thus refused to worship him. Atheists often point out what a nasty character of fiction Yahweh is and question Christians on why they would worship a figure so evil. Atheists do not mean by that to concede that god exists. Atheists simply think Yahweh is a character of fiction that some simple-minded people believe is real. He is no more real than Snow White’s evil stepmother. Arguments about Yahweh’s existence are even more idiotic than arguments about whether Snow White’s evil stepmother was real. (The evil queen violates far fewer laws of physics.)

For atheists, the existence of god is not a serious issue. The only reason it is debated is there are so many people suffering from the delusion Yahweh is real and committing crimes because of it.

Why do Christians so badly misunderstand atheists? Christians, are terrified of Yahweh. They presume everyone else must think as they do, even if others deny it. The fear is so intense, it overpowers rational thought. It is like a person terrified of spiders has trouble understanding his fear is not universal.
