Hi lol@u.
Perhaps you re occurring issue with atheist men had something to do with the personality type rather than the atheism? Just a thought.
Feel free to ask any questions you like, lots of helpful people here
BTW I live with a person of faith have done for 32 years. These days the faith only goes as far as a vague hope that there is something there after we die. That's cool, his choice.
Enjoy the forum

Now before you get excited

I'm not the excitable type

I am not an athiest,

You made that clear in your profile

I have faith because it works for me

Could you share two or three examples with us?

But i dont believe in religion at all

Are you perhaps a deist?

I think its man made mumbo jumbo
.
I know it is.

What I am seeking are answers.

What is the question?

I fell in love with a guy who is an athiest,

It happens.

I was happy to accept that

That's good.

but found he had an incewssant neeed to mock my faith.

Incessantly? Really?

This isnt the first time this has happene to me with an athiest man.
As a great Prime Minister once said: "Life wasn't meant to be easy."

I dont want to try and change anyone,

I didn't think you did.

why is it that all athiests I meet want to change me?

I don't know. (All of them?)

Ok Kool .My Faith is not in a man sitting on a cloud .I feel I have an internal knowing that none of this is by chance,I believe in evolution,however I believe that is part of the design of all living things,I believe we have only scratched the surface of what mankind has the inbuilt ability to do

So you have an imaginary friend. So do many kids. Most of us, however, grow out of it.

You sound quite sheltered and naive. Some life experience can do you the world of good.

It's always important to remember that just because you believe something, it does not mean that it's true. Always seek out credible evidence, as this is the only pathway to things that are actually true.

Good luck.

Another Athiest mocking my faith! Ive not mocked your views or asked you to explain your reasons why because I accept you as you are .This is where the whole" Im an Athiest" take pisses me off You need proof , you need evidence yet you have none yourself you only have YOUR belief that this was all an accident .A true Athiest doesnt require evidence they are right or wrong they dont seek out others to disprove them they just accept each day as it comes & walks the earth creating thier own path putting all down to luck , lack of luck coincidence & timing
I dont need proof , I dont need you to show me your proof I am quite happy for you to believe or not believe in whatever or nothing,What I do expect however is to be accepted for who I am , for what I believe regardless of your views .
Its callednot being a Bigot

I got a bit upset because my boyfriend used to mock my faith by calling it my imaginary friend , its upsetting because I know its not like that at all for me ,It may be for you because you have no faith & thats ok Im just askng not to be bigotted .
The question was why do people who have no faith feel it nessasary to belittle & mock those that do?I dont mean to put all athiests into the same basket & ofcourse ive not met them all as suggested earlier But the ones I have met have not been happy just to accept me and my faith bthey have gone to great lenghths to debate the fact with me even when I have stated that I am quite content and feel no need at all to question thier or my feelings on the subject .
I just want to know whats the pay off???
