No, the majority of atheists I've come across are not arrogant and angry most of the time.

You realise that you're talking about over 50% of the world?
Yes, I'm sure that most of those billions of people are arrogant and angry all the time, not a generalisation at all :rolleyes:

I wouldn't say 'most' atheist are arrogant and angry. Yeah you will get some that are and some that aren't. I think its very immature to generalise and say most are like that just because you have met a few.

That would be like me since I'm an atheist saying "most Christians are in your face trying to convert you and slam you to hell if you say you're an atheist!". Yeah I've met one or 2 like that but the majority of Christians I have met don't give a crap if someone is an atheist and just keep their opinions to themselves.

He said most, nothing wrong with generalising, it's overgeneralising that's irrational.

He's 'generalising', Then why don't you atheists stop 'generalising' all theists as deluded. It could be something extremely personal like a murdered member in the family. The crimal has never been found, which in this case many will believe in God. For the ultimate justice. There are many key reasons why believe in God.

It probably has something to do with how you find out whether someone is an atheist, OP. If you were to start a debate on religious belief or lack thereof by insulting atheists, then naturally you would find them "arrogant and angry" :lol:

Have to say though. As an atheist, what I believe or don't believe generally doesn't impact my day, that's the point.

Just seems very broad to say 'most' but fair enough.

If this is aimed at me I'm not an atheist and definitely do not 'generalise' that all theists are deluded.

how do we seem arrogant? by making perfectly valid criticisms towards religions? is that arrogance if we happen to be perfectly rational in those criticisms? what constitutes arrogance? being wrong or being right? or both? and in what conditions?

The atheists who actually care about religion are the angry ones. The massive percentage of people who just accept you for who you are don't really care, they just get annoyed, and I'd imagine it's human nature, when someone comes up to you and tries to force their faith on you because they're 100% sure that their religion is the "right one for you". As I see it, there are two types of people, the couldn't care less people and the anal about everything people. They can be both religious and non-religious, Atheist or Christian. Some Atheists are going to be more anal about their way of thinking just like any Muslim, Christian etc. The reason why people think Christians are forcing their faith on you the entire time is because of the Christians which actually do that. There is probably a large proportion of people who would call themselves Christian but don't shout about the bible all day or even go to Church at all.

FWIW, the most angry and arrogant person I have ever met was my old parish priest.

He was not a good advertisement for his faith.

That is because they have to put up with people who believe rather trivial ideas.
