This is my first post. I am a nontheist rather than an atheist because atheism seems to include both passive nontheism and aggressive anti-theism. Personally, I don't believe in gods and I am unconcerned about other people who believe in such creatures. To me, the great harm to the world has come, not from theist or nontheist per se, but from a militant dogmatic ideology, e.g., Islam, Christianity, Marxism and anti-theism to name a few. I suspect militant dogmatism might be a symptom of some deep seated psychopathology, i.e., unresolved conflicts about what they believe. Why are they so threatened by people who disagree with them?
