Pride, is that an emotion. Let them know the sense of pride you feel not being amongst the credulous, like your average theist and Buddhist. It probably doesn't occur to a lot of people you can be proud to not believe. They only see it as a badge of shame. Even in the UK where few people under the age of 60 believe the sense of shaking off this 2000 year old confidence trick still gives me a sense of satisfaction.
