Hello everybody, my name is Maximo and as a fellow Atheist, there is something that bothers me almost as much as Religion. The Atheist movement. 

As I watch videos, read articles and keep up with Atheist news, recently there has been some things that I think are detrimental to Atheism. some examples; Atheist monument recently put up in the Florida Courthouse, Atheist Church was built, among some of the biggest ones. In a smaller perspective, Atheists always making fun of religion. Now don't get me wrong, I find alot of the comments, memes, funny also but shouldn't we be more modest and polite with our approach? Also, the whole famous statement of calling non-believers like ourselves Atheists is like saying you are a non-stamp collector, seems to show how we Atheists really are. We understand the history of Religion and how it "works" for people as a fake hope but out grew it just like Santa Claus.

Atheists, at least most of them, seem to have a deep passion for Science and Reason. When I find myself in a discussion or just conversating with people, I rather promote Science and Reason than bring down Religion. By doing it that way, I believe I have a stronger impact with people on Religion anyway.

So if anybody can give their thoughts and opinions on the matter, just wondering if I'm not the only one that feels this way.
