Whoops, "no beliefs"? Your construct is incorrect. Atheists have-
Besides discounting anyone else's worldview as invalid, believing that there is no higher power(s), the belief that it is OK to call people "sheep" or "believing in fairy tales" and "you're just an idiot." Get over yourself, you are as bad as a fundamentalist Baptist, the only difference is that most religious people don't run around calling atheists "morons" for having a different opinion. Religious folk (for the most part)- "You don't believe in anything, that's cool." Atheists (and specifically you)- "You fucking dolt for believing in something I don't, why don't you go ride a unicorn with your fairy tale god."

In summary, learn some tolerance for others. No need to shove your beliefs down anyone else's throats.

Over here in the US, there is no equality in insurance. For example, there are different rates for men/women and young/old based on historical evidence. But if a bad woman drive has a few accidents, her rates are going to explode. Not sure where you're getting your medical insurance info from, but my wife who has diabetes pays the same amount as her healthy coworkers. And in the US you don't have to buy flood insurance. The thing is, if you pay your $5/month for flood, and you house is destroyed, the federal government comes in and pays the few $100k to fix you up, garnered from the whole country's tax dollars, so essentially everyone ends up paying for the flood insurance. If you don't buy it, and get wiped out, I hope you have stashed that few $100k in the bank, rather than paying $600 over 10 years for insurance.
