58. Oh, I see where you are coming from now.

I agree with Leonitus. I don't think many atheists disdain for religion comes from some great source of understanding that every one else is missing.

Each has an individual perspective which is unique. They may feel that there perspective is "knowing it well", but it is nothing but their perspective.

Basically the way I interpret that particular question by the OP is this:

I reject religion because I really know it so I have the authority to judge it. If you were as smart as me and really understood it, you would reject it, too.

Pretty insulting, that.
