77. I have noticed that too
"Have you ever wondered why people seem to think that the most effective insult to atheists and atheism is to accuse them of being believers?"

Why do they do that? I think some are trying to show that they feel atheists DO BELIEVE in something (the non-existence of God). They are trying to reason with people. Regardless of whether or not they are correct about atheism = a belief, I think they are coming at the issue with the right mindset: to discuss, to compare ideas.

Others are just being childish.
