Are Religious People More Prone to Internet Trolling than Non-Religious People?

In terms of the newer definition of trolling, we are discussing, atheist bias about religion is trolling to anyone who took the time to learn more about the subject. It is linear, predictable and doesn't attempt to come to any truth. This type of trolling does not require support evidence to prove linear claims.

When I was very young I believed more in the Christian Religion, but my belief in science and how the world works has always been superior.
But I am a troll by all means, even if I'm less of one now. I feed off of emotion. So if I had to guess, I would say religion and trolling are not related.

In my experience, religious people very rarely troll; believing in what you say, however ridiculous it may be, pretty much excludes the possibility of trolling. That said, their posts often has as disruptive an influence as trolling posts, which ironically makes posing as a religious "true believer" a very useful tactic for a non-religious troll.

here I will nitpick you.
Not like GAHD said because they have a love for always being right.
By inserting "always" and omitting "beyond one book" you drastically change the meaning of what I said.
I attribute this to them taking their love for "being right, damn it!" beyond ONE book.
To clarify: Atheists "troll" about things OTHER than religion. And I'd hardly call their passions uniform. Where'd the agnostics get lumped anyways?

If an atheist were to "troll" about something apart from religion, why would his atheism have any bearing on it? If somebody "trolls" a site that is about structural engineering, why would you assume the troller to be an atheist, and not, say, a Muslim?
To clarify: Atheists "troll" about things OTHER than religion.
I dare say that chances of a troll at a site dedicated to something like structural engineering is at least fifty-fifty, if not completely in favour of the troll being religious.
Because, you see, it's not about them "being right". They're just so damned used to defending the indefensible.
