Atheists often want to pose as "free thinkers". But they are anything but.
A quick look at the Dawkins' site will prove that to you.
Take a look at how these people react to the opinions of theists/ religious people [source]:
NOT by answering their arguments.
NOT by telling them why they are wrong.
NOT by analyzing their opinion and their own arguments.
NOT by challenging the intellectual of their "opponents" by posing questions.
But by attacking them personally!
By attacking straw-men arguments! (surprise surprise! not all clerics are child molesters!)
Christians are just "stupid", "saying nonsense", "raping children" et cetera.
Christians are just... sick and need a... cure (!) as the T-shirt of Dawkins tells us. [source]
Dogmatism in its best form.
The "opponent" is sick - how can you ever reason with him?
We (atheists) know the truth!
We (atheists) have the keys to Logic!
(no, it does not matter that our views are far more illogical - see here and here to begin with)
When the arguments of your "opponent" (I do not see them as opponents, but they certainly do) are diminished to personal attacks and insults, then you know you are close to the truth...
Dogmatism sometimes lurks in places tagged as "free thinking".
He who shouts more about something, is usually the one who does not respect it...
