I'm a Scientific atheist, not entirely surprising as I do have a science degree! My DH is an atheist too, so are both sets of parents. You have to go back to our grandparents to find any religious people, mostly catholics.

I'd probably be a buddhist if I HAD to.

I don't entirely understand "Militant atheist," really what is the worst atheist out there doing?! Writing books? Talking about their atheism? I just don't hear about them doing anything near as bad as the religious fundamentalists (who are, depending on the religion, are protesting marriage equality, limiting women's reproductive rights, trying to introduce creationism to public school, stoning women or just plain old blowing things up).
So when I hear "I dislike the militant atheists more than the religious fundamentalists" My brain screams WHY!? Because they are big meanies? I just don't get it....

The thing that militant atheists and religious fundamentalists have in common is the need to be right and have everyone know about it. I don't understand why, if you're comfortable with your own non-belief/belief you need to prove your view is right.

Limiting women's reproductive rights and being against marriage equality are not limited to the religious either.

I'm planning to raise my kids as non-religious - our nothingness doesn't need a name!
