The type of atheist who is offended
by religious fundamentalists, whilst
simultaneously displaying the exact traits he or she claims to find offensive in them (generally included, but not limited to, arrogance, bigotry, myopia, and a tendency towards circular logic, sanctimony, and melodrama.)
Radical atheists blame war, sexism, cancer, tornadoes, and George Lucas on religion, and, while
vocally mocking personages held sacred by others, will
attack blindly if Richard Dawkins
is treated with anything other than blind
and reverential worship. You can, indeed, not talk about
'The Dawk' without inciting
a flame war, or as radical atheists call them "Crusades."
misconception is that all Raging Atheists tend to be high school/early college students who've just heard about
for the first time. While
this is a common
specimen, just as many are middle-aged hipsters who, having been raised
in a strictly religious household, began rebelling and ended up as the mirror (and equally annoying) image
of their fundamentalist parents.
Rabid atheists roam the plains of Reddit and YouTube looking
offense and clench
their buttholes in self-righteous indignation. No one is certain of their exact numbers as individual pack members
known to host a number
of accounts; some of which they use to agree with themselves and some of which, posing as fundamentalists, they use to posit straw-man arguments.
