What is the silliest question you’ve been asked about atheism (in general or yours in particular)?

So far I haven’t been asked any really silly questions.  I mean that.
There have been those that are packed with presumptions, of course, but they haven’t been frivolous inquiries.  It’s perfectly understandable that people steeped in a religious framework would be puzzled at how others can get along just fine without their props. However, they ought to have realized that given that all religions are minority ones, with beliefs differing so widely that the existence of atheists are a minor sidebar in the landscape of uncertainty about what is “true.”
