    I guess conflicting views is the main thing... Learning to express your points about your beliefs calmly and sensibly is something that sadly some people in various groups fail to be able to do. That is where the supposed hatred comes from.

    My problem with Atheism is that they may force their ideology down people's throats. I fear a Soviet, Chinese or even Albanian replay may happen.

    Sound familiar?

    People like to belong to a group and once they belong to a group they like to take measures to achieve superiority over other available groups. This has been demonstrated to be true in a number of contexts and adequately answers your questions.

    Yeah, but you moderates just give credibility to the fundamentalists, so you're part of the problem.

    Standard group mentality, Humans are violent, aggressive and sadistic by nature. Religion gives people a perfect way to distinguish the are and are nots thus allowing them to justify actions against them.

    It's like football hooliganism on a larger scale, people join a firm so they can basically fight and satisfy their primal needs while building a sense of belonging and importance.

    people who are insecure in their beliefs do this, they don't like the fact that other people who have different beliefs to them in case they may actually be right so they try and stop this

    A growing problem in the atheist movement.

    People who are tolerant of the intolerant.

    the irony...

    based on TSR, its always on religious discussions... hardly forcing, and its not like atheism is the only one at fault

    its more of a personality trait than one due to religion, just like with theists

    Worshippers of faiths that are monotheistic in nature are subconsciously threatened by those of us who have a religion that is either polytheistic or atheistic in nature. I feel the same way about people harshing my mellow about Buddhism. As a side note, I want to add that I joined the site just to post on this thread. Approx. 20 mins ago. Haha..

    Religions give their followers a belief of divine selection, of being a chosen people, of being the recipients of a truth that no other group knows. This makes them special and better than everyone else.
