Arrogant Atheists?

This is more than two months old, but I still think this is interesting.

What’s interesting to me is that, according to these survey results, there is a certain symmetry between, on the one hand, theistic stereotypes about atheists, and, on the other hand, atheistic stereotypes about theists.

  Dominant Theistic View Dominant Atheistic View
Morality of “Other” Side Atheists are less moral than theists Atheists are as or more moral than theists (99.5%)
    Religion is a force for bad in the world (87%)
Mental Health of “Other” Side Atheists are psychologically maladjusted Theists are less psychologically healthy than atheists (56%)
Stigmatization of “Their” Side   Atheists are Unfairly Stigmatized (86%)

If these survey results are accurate, then it would appear that many atheists are the secular equivalent of fundamentalist Christians.
