Atheist zealots

The most irritating facet of organized religion is zealotry. It is also the most dangerous. Insistance on and promotion of a single viewpoint as the only way to find ones way in a world of myriad paths is the epitome of hubris. Therefore, I eschew religion and follow an atheist path. I still do , but the new movement of atheist zealotry is depriving me of a philosphical niche. I think it is as ridiculous to insist on a disbelief as to insist on a belief. Obverse views on belief systems can co-exist, without rancor, if zealots would stop insisting we follow their paths.
