As for the atheist thing: just be honest with them, and don't back down should they try to intimidate you.

Usually true unless they're hardcore about religion and you're too young to get a job. Money gives them a lot of leverage.

They will respect you even more for being strong in your convictions.

Or they think you're a hellspawn and treat you as such.

Shame on you for being intolerant. People like you, i.e, people who refuse to discuss properly, and resort to childish retorts are not welcome. Theists, atheists, people of all religious beliefs are welcome, so long as you can reason your views coherently and without ending up in displays of immaturity. You're not. So, bye.

it's not such a big deal to be a atheist in europe, i dont have any 1st hand experience whit parents getting mad because their child said, (s)he is a atheist.

so me replying to this topic will be kinda useless. i once did because i thought this topic was dumb. but then some1 showed me some video's how it can go.
so, shame on me for living in a tolerant free world.

To answer the question, I was 11 or 12 yo when I told my mom that I didn't want to go to church anymore and if she forced me I would make a scene every time
Fortunately for me, neither of my parents were religious zealots.
The only times I went to church after that was because of funerals or to listen to organ concerts.

Someone who believes in an imaginary being is more likely to be considered not very smart. xD xD

Yes...we're the foolish ones to not believe in the invisible magic man in the sky who talks through various people instead of to everyone. Who doesn't seem to find it necessary to give us any physical evidence of his existence or address any of the many evils in the world, despite claiming to be all powerful, all knowing, and all loving. Who has been represented in thousands of different ways, who has shown himself to have a very poor understanding of astrophysics, biology, and moral consistency.

Yes, we're certainly foolish for not accepting such a being, who has sent four different holy books to us, all of which say contradicting things.
