My Atheism makes everyone uncomfortable

As the year approaches the very End, so are we, dying everyday. The negative energy is the sole purpose of this new post.I mean as an atheist, I'm always criticized. We blame God for every thing, good or bad, nice or ugly, ill or healthy.

In this fast paced community, we do many things.

Inventions

Man's ambition is the only source of its growing legacy on the planet. We 'invent' stuff . And modify them to suit our needs. But still one of the invention stands apart from the rest, merely any tool or creation, rather very simple imagination i.e itself the Almighty. We hold him responsible for everything. It is the best invention as the giant tree is holding our patience and constantly checking us to do the wrong deeds. We have no reason to disbelieve.

God is the safety net

Because we are human, each one of us needs someone to blame for, to be held responsible for. We need someone to supervise our each and every decision . We ask the God for things as we are sure of his knowledge about us. We are only human beings for Christ's sake. Bounded by chain of troubles, we need to share our emotions. And the most amazing thing is we are also aware that he won't show up to tell others.
At the same time contradicting his existence, we live satisfying our hidden lives.

Great Men Say

Don Hirschberg:
"Calling Atheism a religion is like calling bald a hair color."


"[O]wners of dogs will have noticed that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they will think you are god. Whereas owners of cats are compelled to realize that, if you provide them with food and water and shelter and affection, they draw the conclusion that theyare gods." 
 Christopher Hitchens (The Portable Atheist: Essential Readings for the Non-believer)

"Take man's most fantastic invention- God. Man invents God in the image of his longings, in the image of what he wants to be, then proceeds to imitate that image, vie with it, and strive to overcome it."  - Eric Hoffer
