My experience with atheists has been that they seem to be very angry, negative, unhappy, sarcastic, mean, belittling, pejorative, and intent on making everyone else as miserable and unhappy as they are. Atheists/agnostics are not all the same, just like Christians aren't. And they have their moods, just like CHristians do. I have seen very nice Christian neighbors suddenly make hateful remarks about people who are different by race, religion, sexual orientation or political orientation. I have seen them stop saying Hi to me when they learned I wasn't one of them. If atheists in America are bad-humored at times, there is reason for it (so to speak-). I can also understand why Christians get cranky about everyone in America not believing with them or at least keeping their unbelief to themselves.It can make one cranky to hear daily public prayers (does God care who wins a high school football game?) and that you're going to hell and are the cause of America's problems, and to hear any believers belittle the absurd dogma and ritual of others while seldom having any perspective on their own beliefs and practices.I don't know if you're right about the reason for duality and separation, but I agree there is plenty of it! I like your beliefs far more than most because your beliefs are sweet and kind to all. I love my husband's boss because he's an evangelical who acts in a CHrist-like manner, good to all, not disparaging of any (save occasionally college administrators ;-)
