Young atheists, mostly teens, are becoming somewhat exiled, and harshly judged by their peers, who do not agree with their beliefs. I am one of the teens, and their are a few more classmates i see these judgments being placed upon. My class constantly gets into, debates and arguments on whether or not evolution and the scientific version of earths creation, is true compared to the Christian version in which God made the earth and heavens as we know them today. I along with my other classmates who agree with me (which i might add, there are a total of 4, of us), fight back against the many Christians, who declare and insist that they are right and we are wrong. Which at that point, makes me laugh because in biology we watched the 4 episodes of Cosmos, a 4 episode television series, and in one of the episodes, it explains the facts of evolution, and how evolution made earth and the living creatures on it. But even with the scientific proof, right in front of their eyes they denied it completely. I must admit, their faith is strong and i respect them for that, and i respect their beliefs, but I nor do my fellow classmate atheists judge them badly because of their choices and beliefs... so why i ask, do they judge us in this way for ours?
