Do atheists make fun of god?

The popular belief is that atheists sit around disparaging churches, god, saints, the religious and so on. Some of the popular showboating atheists do just that, just like showboating evangelists run down those who haven't "come to Jesus".

However the vast bulk of atheists are like adults who no longer believe in the tooth fairy, monsters under the bed, Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny - they just never think of it. Consider how often you hear an adult seriously making fun of or running down the monster under the bed, except as a joke or as an allusion. Hardly ever. Same thing with god(s)
