Oh yeah, Atheists are the *worst* about witnessing their (un)faith these days, and in the same, in your face, aggressive, YOU MUST AFFIRM MY BELIEFS sort of desperate way as evangelists. Without irony.

Just like I used to assume all theists were crazy fundies, I now assume all atheists are le modern enlightened perfectly rational types who I would rather be vivisected than spend one minute hearing them speak at me.

This is because ATHEISM IS A RELIGION.   It is a religion whose militants are more abusive than any other religion except perhaps Islam.  And that may only be a temporary situation, because there are atheist fundies who *would* go around killing heretics if they could.

Militant atheists HATE being told that atheism is NOT the same thing as absence of religion.  Make sure you remind them of that as often as possible.

Not all are that way.

NAXALT is always true and always irrelevant.

Not all *everyone* is the way we think *everyone* like that is. 

The question becomes, are a significant portion of *some* of them that way? Enough that it is a problem? 


When a subset of 15% of the population is responsible for more than 50% of the violent crime including murder, rape, theft, and other criminal activities - does it become fair to assume that people from that 15% group, especially ones who look *like* the subset of that 15% minority - are potentially criminal? That isn't *racism*. That is a prudent conclusion. 

I mean - just because SOME white men *can* dance, doesn't mean that white folks aren't generally shittier dancers that you encounter in other ethnic groups. 

Likewise - there are a lot of atheists screwing up the perception for the rest of them currently. It didn't used to be that way. But the voice of the militant and extreme branch of atheism currently drowns out the more traditional atheist voice.
