  • Yes, while many religious users are respectful towards atheists, many are not. I have seen many posts which verge on/do effectively insult atheists due to their beliefs. I have seen atheists been called "stupid", "absurd", "retarded", "evil" and one post which has stated atheists have had a massive "blow to the head". It is ok to not agree with atheists, it is ok to try and prove the existence of God and argue against atheism, but I see too many people using derogatory words against atheists and atheism.

  • Out of the theists, I would say it appears so, but that could just be because the anti-atheists shout the most and the loudest.

  • Well said SNP1

  • The ones that participate in DDO. Although, I see plenty of other beliefs participating I see anti-theists the most.

  • Most people on the internet seem to be atheists.

That depends on what you mean by "anti."

I'm honestly not sure. I would like to think that perhaps it is like SNP1 said, and that the anti-atheists are the most frequent and loud shouters. I would hope that we might have more open minds on here than not...But it seems that like anywhere, there are many who are not looking to learn, instead assuming that they have all of the answers already.

I think a large number of atheists are anti-theists, so I think it works both ways.

Many atheists are called anti-theists by theists purely because they respond to them with a scientific and logical rebuttal.

Oh, you mean like, "You don't understand modern science"? Now, I'm not against the scientific evidence, only the insults. That gives science a bad name.
