Do people become atheists cause they think it's cool/rebellious?
Well it won't be so "cool" when you're burning in Lake of Fire! xD

Kid... you don't mind if I call you 'kid', do you?
Kid, I was seven when I first heard about the bibel-god chappie - 1954.
LONG before I knew much about anything let alone science being a concept...
LONG before the internets were invented.
LONG before I knew there were others like me...
LONG before I'd read anything written by atheists...
It was just so obvious - just like Pixie and Elf and Goblin...
I never read anything telling me they were fantasy figures either 😎
For the next 30+ years I tried every way I could to prove that 7-year old wrong.
I wanted to believe - I WANTED a god to exist - I wanted to be like other people.
Cos so many people couldn't be wrong, could they?
Of course I failed to prove the god thingie exists because god is imaginary...
There is absolutely NO verifiable evidence any sort of god critter exists.
Otherwise you wouldn't need faith cos nothing real needs faith.
I'll guarantee the number of christers who challenged their beliefs for as long as I did is infinitesimal
I'll bet anything in the world you haven't 😎

The only way primitive religion exists today is through the child abuse of forcing it into very, very young children but thanks to better education and growing intellects so many teens are able to discover the truth, throw off the indoctrination and step into the real world!
So atheism is not a conscious decision or a belief but a realization!
But do not worry you will never become an atheist since you obviously lack the two things necessary!!!

The hottest and coolest would be reserved for hell dwellers to remain there in eternally.

People become atheists when they realize there is no proof any gods exist and that believing in some deity without any proof is irrational.
- HindusufiLv 71 month ago
It's because there is no real evidence for the existence of any gods or deities.

No! I'm an atheist because I don't believe in imaginary magical sky fairies and associated places. I am a lifelong atheist since birth in 1971, those that don't know me personally do not know I'm an atheist and I never bring it up to anyone, because that is my business and I don't care who knows. So no is the answer!
