I thought it might be fun to discuss the words, currently in use by the godless.
Atheist: I don't believe. Often confused with
Anti-theist: I disbelieve.
Agnostic: I don't know. Used by intellectual purists, the cowardly and the indecisive. Three different groups. Not all the same.
Agnostic Atheist: I don't know and I don't believe.
Apathetic Agnostic. I don't know and I don't care. (The "church" that ordained me.)
Apatheist: I don't care whether or not God exists. I rather like this one. For the people who are so irritated by metaphysics; they can't even by bothered with the questions -- or arguments. Mostly they want to be left alone.
Brights: A word advocated by Dan Dennett. He says that Brights can be used to advocate for Atheism, the same way that "Gay" was used to advance Homosexual rights. He goes on to distinguish between Dims, Murkys and Supers.
Secularists: The Secular
Humanists: I regard this as a political designation.
Nones: Much loved by polling groups -- which use the designation differently.
Free Thinker: An umbrella term. A bit old fashioned, but still has it's charm. I have also seen ignorant Christians, try to use the label for themselves. As in "Free Thinking Christian". Strangely annoying.
What did I forget?
