Look up the word, associate and then look up the word, peers, and then get back to me.<quoted text>
I associate with Muslims, atheists, Hindus, and a few from a religion I can't spell.
How do I speak of atheists?
You speak of atheists as if you have no idea what they actually think. Thus it is clear, you do not have any atheist peers.
You might associate with them, but do not really get to know them and have not been raised with them in your life.
