I don't think atheists are angry at all (at least the ones I've met aren't anyway). I struggle with the fact that I'm not sure if I believe in God
or not. One thing I've always struggled with is the idea that I don't really think people love God, I think they love the idea of getting into
heaven. This is one of the things I've chatted about with atheist friends of mine and they actually provided some decent insight. I'm waiting for
that one event that really tests my faith and helps me decide which route I want to go.
I don't think it's anger as much as it is frustration. Atheists lose faith in god because they see religion for the fraud that it is, and they
become frustrated with those who have yet to realize that all religion is a sham.
Atheists want to help you, not hurt you. Trust me. Atheism requires an open mind, religion the opposite.
I don't think it's about atheists being angry in general, to me it's more about them becoming angry when unfounded claims are being made.
There are quite intellectual Christians (People of all theistic religions for that matter) who can argue their case using credible sources, and have
obviously put in the effort to research what they're arguing. I have never had a problem with such people, they have shown they are not ignorant to
the claims their religion makes, and the claims made against it.
I get angry when people use the bible (Or insert religious text here) as the be all and end all text for all questions that anyone will ever have on
the ground that it is a divine text. They have shown no effort in their argument and are just parrots repeating that message that they have had
ingrained into their brain.

I wouldn't say that I'm converted , however I really enjoy trying to see things from other peoples point of view. I'm constantly reassessing my
beliefs on a never-ending quest for truth . I find it embarrassing just how horribly treated atheists or other religions that don't follow the
"mainstream" get treated. I thought that by bringing forth some of the most intelligent , well thought out arguments may be an eye opener for some
of the fallacies and unfair prejudices people have.
