Tell them "Okay," and go live on your own for two years. Missionaries get minimal contact, so you don't have to tell them crap. Only issue with that plan is money. I suggest starring in a porno as a masked vigilante/super stud and become a crime fighting badass so you can win the girl. You will also need a side-kick with a dildo strapped to his head, or this plan is sure to fail. Good luck!

Sacrifice a goat in your living room while chanting Satanic mantras.

Problems this will solve -
1. They won't think you're Atheist
2. You won't have to go on mission in 2 years
3. Goat meat for a week

I know this is hard to hear, especially because they are your family, but if they dont love and accept you for who you are, they are bad people and worse parents
Be who you are and good luck.

Tell them that being in a cult isn't for everybody. I'm sure they'll understand.

They are your family, tell them what you believe and i promise that they will accept you. that is both the most stereotypical answer and the most solid one. You should feel the need to hide from the people who love you. You would be miserable on mission, and I'm sure that no one wants you to be unhappy.

That's a good point. Overall they've been very loving and nurturing, it's just that my mom (easily the most religious person) has said at certain times how distraught she'd be if any of her kids turned away from the church.

Just ******* say no, I am Atheist and if you can't respect me for that, than you truly don't love me.

If your family can't accept, love and support you for who you are. Then they aren't your family and are not worth your consideration and compassion.

Just lay it out there plain, explain why you believe what you do and why you don't believe what they do. I am atheist and one of my friends is mormon and one of our mutual friends is catholic. So long as everyone is respectful about it, it shouldn't be a big deal really

You shouldn't do something you don't believe or don't want to just to please them. tell them the truth, as your family they should love you no matter what, even if your beliefs are different then theirs

My grandma is a Mormon, too.
My uncle was in the same situation like you.
However his despise of mormon believes and what he called a bias philosophy, he did go on the missionary. He went from Germany to the US and even though he hated the missionary work, he states that it was a life-enriching expirience.
Maybe you can take the experience and leave after you build up an indipendent life.
That would require a certain amount of recklessness and determination.
Both characterisations are not very honorable. So if you chose to keep it real, you should bear in mind that if your family does not support you in your decision, they value an imagination higher than you.

I admitted it to my religious parents and very religious grandparents when I was just 11 years old. They took it well and they just stopped taking me to church or trying to teach me about their beliefs. As long as I'm as well-behaved as I've always been, they're happy.

send jobs applications or intership in the field of what you are studying to cover your expenses of living alone and away from any relative, dont ever open facebook or any other social network, return after the 2 years like you were on mission,if they ask anything, say you make a vow of silence to what you share with their god in that time, if you liked living alone then you have 2 years of experience, end your studies, live your life, travel, make a family, tell them what you did, and only agree them to meet your family after they agree to recognize your atheism, tell them you love them for who they are and not for what they believe in. and you want to share your new life with them
maybe i started to be incoherent, still good luck, and sorry for any english trouble you had reading it

go on mission to Amsterdam as they need the moral goodness stuff that your selling the most because of their ways, then just have a fun time, backpack Europe and **** , most people want to do that sometime in their lives anyway...
If you want talk to people in Europe about your situation, enlightenment for you and in some sense you tried to open someone elses mind to the religious stuff that your family wants to spread so you won't have to lie to them either about your religious conquests!

Tell the truth. If they love you they will understand that and accept who you have become.

Coming from a family of catholics and southern baptists (there was only ever the one mixed family reunion) I know the feeling. My advice is to just be straight up and honest, failing that, tell your family that you feel as if "god has some other greater purpose" for those two years... something like ... idk... pretty much anything. Being a doctor perhaps, being a researcher for the cure for cancer, perhaps being a martian colonist(check over in the ************** channel for that info). Hell that last one could be construed as 'missionary' work if you word it properly.

You've got it rough. My family's catholic, so I just have to keep going to church whenever I'm home and pretending I still believe. Maybe you should claim to be some other denomination of christian, that would be easier to swallow than telling them you're an atheist, and it saves you from going on the mission.
Make sure you watch the south park episode on mormons, it should give you the strength to pull through.
