I see it differently. At the same time that they're insulting themselves, they're praising us. They admit that without religion they would do whatever they want, without a care about consequences, to themselves or others. That suggests that, at the core, atheists who are not doing these things are better people. We have no worry of divine retribution, yet we don't go around murdering and stealing anyway.

They're not only deeply insulting themselves, they're also greatly praising us.
