Really, why are they? And they are! I noticed that!
Well, if you really want to know, you can now read Greta Christina’s book on the topic, Why Are You Atheists So Angry? 99 Thing That Piss Off the Godless
It just came out, moments ago, in Kindle form. I believe it will be out in a few other formats over the next several days. Obviously, you can keep an eye on her blog for details.

Well I can only speak for myself, but generally I only get angry when I can’t believe other people are that fucking stupid.
Coincidentally, this also applies to my workplace.
All atheists are angry in the way that all christians are angry, or all muslims are angry, or all football fans are angry, or all politicians are angry.
It’s a grossly incorrect, far-reach and factually inaccurate broad-generalization that serves no true purpose.
All atheists are not angry, that’s foolishness and nonsense. Some people are angry. Those people are loud. You notice them more. If you’re already focused on a group you’re even more likely to ignore the elements of that group which don’t meet your worldview.
To declare that every member of a demographic possesses a human characteristic which is present in some members of all demographics is foolishness. It doesn’t matter what you’re saying or who you’re talking about, it’s never anything more than a grossly incorrect, far-reach and factually inaccurate broad-generalization that serves no true purpose
Perhaps those angry atheists have forgotten the lesson of XKCD’s “Duty Calls” — http://xkcd.com/386/ — also referenced as “386”.
I would be angry and hateful as well knowing I live only for today that should I die tonight tomorrow will never exist. Being a christian and there is a heaven means you are saved. Being a Christian and there is no heaven you are no worse off than an atheist. Choose wisely.
