Try not to enjoy this too much . . .

Read the whole delicious thing: Why atheists can’t get dates.

Schadenfreude warning: This makes some excellent points.

“There aren’t many serious atheists, mostly geeky young men:

By numbers alone, American atheists really aren’t that big of a group. According to a 2012 Pew report, atheists make up only about 2.4 percent of the population. . . .

So your social life might be limited. It gets worse.

Richard Dawkins, one of the keynote speakers, encouraged attendees to “ridicule” people’s faith. Not all atheists take this tone toward faith, but it’s a somewhat common posture, especially among some of atheism’s most vocal advocates, including Dawkins and people like PZ Myers and Bill Maher.

Think about it: They are encouraged to centre out your friends, neighbours, relatives, customers, clients, and guests for ridicule. Soon you might not have a social life at all.

Date? If you need a person in your life who alienates almost anyone who has ever cared about you, seek help. Honestly.

. . .
Based on what we have seen over the years, if you are thinking of getting involved with new atheism, especially if you are a girl, do seek help first.”

All kidding aside, pray for these rebels.  Being miserable in this life and for eternity is something we shouldn’t wish on anyone.  There is hope, joy, freedom and salvation if they will but turn to Jesus.

  1. I have several atheist friends. Thankfully, I have not heard any of them openly ridicule anyone for believing in God. I can’t be certain of their behavior when out of my presence, but I would lay down a bet that they don’t do it or even think about doing it. Again, I’m thankful for their better character than is displayed by a Dawkins or Maher.

    For these friends, I do pray that for them eternity will indeed matter. For all atheists I pray for the epiphany they desperately need. but fear that for most their destiny is already assured. We can be thankful there are only 2.4% of the them.

  2. This makes me think of the crowd Rational Responders some years back…a group of juvenile immature dudes and I wondered often about what kind of relationship they would have (if any)
