Im a proud atheist because I would like to think that before i "believe" in something I find conclusive evidence. And even then its not a belif, its KNOWING.

To be frank, im not interested in converting the fundamentalist to my way of thinking, even if that was possible, which its not. I don't care if they get offended by the word Atheist. I have no respct for the Fundamentalists of any religion. They have caused a lot of damage to humanity. And as for the "moderates" they enable the fundamentalists to get away with "murder".

be tactful? Are relgious people tactful when they tell everyone who they are? no. Everyone else is supposed to be tactful about what they call themselves but religous peoples can be as aggressive as they like.

I think its impossible to avoid groupings. People work together as groups, thats how humans survive. Perhaps you meant avoid labeling. I think Sam Harris is wrong on the use of the word Atheist. It is not the Atheeists job to defend our position. We know what we stand for and what we don't stand for. But if the word Atheist makes people feel uncomfortable, feel free to change it to something else but whatever "label" you come up with will not endear you to anyone criticising atheisim now. Its not the word Atheist that people dislike or "misunderstand" its what we stand for, ie We see no evidence for a supernatural being. You can change the term but you can't change what we stand for and that in the end is what others dislike or disagree with
