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."
A common misconception is that all Raging Atheists tend to be high school/early college students who've just heard about Richard Dawkins 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 to take offense and clench their buttholes in self-righteous indignation. No one is certain of their exact numbers as individual pack members have been 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.
John is a raging atheist, he told me god does not exist and that we are related to apes. I was so shocked by his narrow-mindedness that I left right away.
