God, that's so annoying!

Although I am an atheist, anti-religious zealots annoy me more than religious proselytizers do. Take this quote: 'It's understandable that people made up God. He's an easy foothold in a chaotic, unpredictable world.' So why does the person claiming this not believe in God? The implicit answer is, 'Because I'm smarter. '
This combination of smug superiority and patronizing insult makes me want to puke. The reason I don't believe in God is because I see no indication He exists. But I definitely don't think that religious people are stupid; rather, I think that those who do are stupid themselves.
