It is interesting how theists like to generalise about atheists! Like religious folk, there are many variations of atheists, but basically we are all people who don't believe in a "god" of any sort. Some are hostile towards religion, some couldn't care less, some are political about it, some are not. However we "practice" our atheism, the only real commonality is we don't think there is a "god". After that, it's pretty individual. As mad as religion makes me personally, for all sorts of reasons, attacking people never wins people round to your way of thinking - it makes them cling on tighter to their beliefs - no matter how ludicrous or unbelievable we might think they are. I guess some like to involve their beliefs in all aspects of their life (as in the original post in this thread - you poor thing, I suspected this might happen!) and some just consider themselves "catholic" because they got sent to a catholic school. Either way, belief is very personal and emotional and as long as it is not used to harm or control others (which is where so many of the problems come from with religion and religious practice let's face it) then it's really a personal matter I guess.
