|There seems to be quite a lot of anti-Atheist sentiment reflected in opinion polls. For example atheists are arrogant, condescending, immoral, shrill, dogmatic etc. Certainly these views seem to be present in this forum and seem to apply to all atheists.
Now on the one hand I can understand why a book called The God Delusion or God Is Not Great would certainly be offensive to a number of people. But on their own I don't think they explain the amount or type of negative opinions I have seen reflected.
There is nothing particularly offensive in saying I don't believe in God without empirical evidence, falsifiable predictions and/or logical mechanisms. After all I don't find the reverse particularly offensive. I don't believe all religious people are stupid or immoral, so I kind of assume that atheists should be seen the same way.
