I have 2 female friends who are believers and have claimed several times over the years that since I became an atheist, I act like a know-it-all or arrogant. Many times I've seen similar claims made toward other atheists by other theists in chats, message boards etc. So, I know I'm not the only atheist who occasionally gets this label.
What I would like to know is...
Do we atheists subconsciously become this way because we feel superior to theists??
Are theist somehow jealous that we have overcome something that they are afraid to try and overcome??
Is it simply another way for them to try and demean us??
Or do you think it may be something altogether different?? I'd like to hear your ideas on this.
