Comment 12 by SpirituallyAtheist :

I suppose that believing myths also has to do with the company you keep. Hence the popular atheist myths that "religion is evil," "raising kids as religious is child abuse," "you can't be a scientist and religious," etc.

Ooh, who got out of bed on the wrong side this morning? Your final example is a myth of your own making BTW, I believe it's the atheist view that you cannot be a good scientist and religious. Still, you have a point about atheists and myths; atheists are devil worshippers; Dawkins is shrill and strident; you can't be good without god; and of course there's the new one in the making, http://richarddawkins.net/videos/642933-atheists-and-sex-offenders.
