Well considering i'm more of the 'magical' side - i think it depends on the belief that everyone can share the same 'reality'.
IMO - what would be the root cause of fundamentalist belief that would cause someone to be aggressive in their defense for their own 'belief structure'? I can see the same 'behaviour' in political beliefs and in some extensions in how people & sports are related. Why do we have this need to 'belong' to the point that we'd sacrifice our own lives in defense for one ideology or another?
I couldn't be an athiest any more than i could be a democrat or republican.
