    What is the FEAR, even HATRED of atheists?  Do religionists fear having their beliefs being irrelevant, even WRONG?  What do religionists have to FEAR from atheists?

      People tend to fear worldviews that conflict with their own. It's normal tribal behavior.

      Edit: I'm not saying it's GOOD behavior, just normal for human beings.

        Didn't need to add edit, as a sociology major, I know what you mean. People fear what is unknown & different.  It is an instinctive response.
