The atheist PZ Myers, quoting fellow leftist Alex Nichols, said that jibes associating outspoken atheists with neckbeards (among other things) caused many liberals/leftists to leave the atheist tent and those who remained for the most part lacked in social skills and self-awareness.[1] See also: Atheism and social skills

The FBI has performed some preliminary research on the psychology of mass shooters: FBI on psychology of mass shooters and FBI Study Identifies Warning Signs Of Future Mass Shooters.

There have been a significant amount of atheists who have been mass shooters (see: List of atheist shooters and serial killers).

John Stott in his 2018 Daily Caller article entitled What Is The Religion Of Mass Public Shooters? wrote:

Just 16 percent have any type of religious affiliation at the time of their attacks, with a slight majority of those being Muslims.

Over just over 20 years from the beginning of January 1998 through today, there have been 69 killers committing 66 mass public shootings in the United States where at least four people have been killed. Of those attacks, just four have been identified as Christians, with just three clearly regular churchgoers. With 70 percent of Americans identifying themselves as Christians and over 33 percent going to church at least once a week, those numbers are a long way away from the 48 or 23 we would respectively expect.[2]

Mass shooters often have these characteristics:

1. Frequently are sociopaths or have psychopathic tendencies (see: Atheism and sociopathy and Atheism and psychopathy).[3]

2. Most mass shooters are men. Of the 62 cases of American mass shooters from 1982-2012, one of them was a woman.[4] The majority of atheists are men (see: Atheism and women).

3. Tend to be proud, narcissists who crave attention (see: Atheism and arrogance and Atheism and narcissism).[5][6]

4. Many are loners (see: Atheism and loneliness and Atheism and social outcasts and Atheism and social/interpersonal intelligence and Atheism and marriage).[7]

5. Many have interpersonal conflicts with family, friends, and colleagues at work or school (see: Atheism and social/interpersonal intelligence and Atheist factions)[8]

6. Often have substance abuse problems (See: Atheism and alcoholism and Atheism and drug addiction).[9]

7. Most mass shooters have mental illness (see: Atheism and mental illness).[10]

8. Often kill themselves or engage in "death by cop" (see: Atheism and suicide).[11]

9. Frequently tend to kill out of revenge/bitterness/unforgiveness/anger (see: Atheism and bitterness and Atheism and unforgiveness and Atheism and anger and Atheism and love).[12][13]

10. Often have poor emotional control (see: Atheism and negative emotions/thoughts).

11. Frequently are very unhappy people (see: Atheism and happiness and Atheism and depression).[14]

12. Many mass shooters are disgruntled people with a sense of entitlement (see: Atheism and gratitude and Atheism and envy).[15][16]

13. Most come from fatherless homes (see: Atheism and illegitimate births and Atheism and divorce and Atheism and poor relationships with parents and Psychology of atheism).[17]

14. Mass shooters often see violence as the only answer (see: Atheism and violence and Irreligion and domestic violence and Atheism and mass murder and Atheist atrocities and Atheism and human rights violations).[18]

15. According to Business Insider: "According to the nonprofit Everytown for Gun Safety, the majority of mass shootings in the US are in some way related to domestic or family violence. A 2018 Everytown report indicates that in at least 54% of mass shootings, the perpetrator also shot a current or former intimate partner or family member." (see: Irreligion and domestic violence).[19]

16. A little over third of the adult mass shooters had prior criminal convictions (see: Irreligious prison population and Religion and crime reduction).[20]

17. Often have health concerns which acts as a stressor in their lives (see: Atheism and health and Irreligion and recovery from illnesses and Atheism and life expectancy)[21]

18. Many are active on the internet and frequently it is found that they have posted disturbing things on social media and/or other websites (see: Internet atheism).

A study entitled Mass Shootings and Media Contagion Theory: Social Media’s Influence on Frequency of Incidents published by Kristina J. Lee at Elon University indicates:

This study suggests that there is a pattern between the spread of mass shooting news on social media platforms and the increase in these crimes. Over time, as social media has increased in usage, so has the coverage of news concerning mass shootings. This also further reflects shooters’ desire for fame and their tendency to copy a crime.

Evidence from this study reveals a large increase in the number of mass shootings after 2011’s social media milestones, and one can conclude that social media most likely has some effect on these crimes, although the degree of this relationship is beyond the scope of this study.[22]
