I'd say if you want to apply the term fundie to an atheist when they display the same closed-minded attitude of a religious fanatic, you're free to do so.
I know I have, they love it.

Of course it is just one person's opinion...but isn't all beliefs or lack of beliefs...just an opinion? None of us have any proof...just a personal opinion.
It is when we try to pass our personal opinions off as "truth" that one becomes "fundamentalist"...a t least in my opinion.
Some will come here and declare they have "proof" that God exists...other will come and say they have "proof" that God doesn't exist...I think IMO that they are both behaving as fundamentalists.
The problems IMO don't lie with what one believes or doesn't believe...it lies in how those beliefs or lack of beliefs is used to control or condemn others.
Ya know...we don't have to agree on any of this...it is ALL just one's own opinion.
I agree 100%

I think the terms Atheism and Atheist Fundamentalism are being confused.
I think there are a few atheists that have an agenda with core principles. Not that all atheists do.
That was my thinking. The person that I am having the discussion with is not one that I would consider in that light. I question if he is aware though, that they are out there. The post was very cut and dried in the aspect of one should not call/consider an atheist, a fundamentalist.

I think if the term could apply, it would be towards the gnostic atheist, who openly states that he doesn't have a theistic belief there are gods, and goes one step further, stating that he believes there are no gods, and disallows the possibility that there could be such an "entity", by whatever description can be imagined or encountered in the universe.
Those are pretty rare beasts, and I'll add much rarer than fundamentalist theists, mainly due to the fact that is a widely held position within theism of all flavors.
That is what I am talking about ;O)

Tomorrow, some of my friends want me to go line dancing.. I've only done it a couple of times, and I'm hoping I can just pick it up? Can you line dance?
For someone who loves "new country"/"country rock" as much as I do, I've never gone line dancing.

I know some of the missionaries that go to Africa, PNG and India and they don't say things like that, neither do any of the Christians I've met here and neither do I. A lot of those missionaries also use their own funds and are Teachers or Medical Professionals who do a lot of good for unfortunate, very ill people, regardless of whether they want to hear about Christ or not. America is not the world.

Notice how she slams our country while defending her faith; what's with that??

Who said anything about slamming your country? Another assumption. What I meant was that all the Christians in the world don't act like the ones I keep reading about and that are on television, from the US. Sometimes it seems that it's assumed by a lot of Americans on topix. Christianity is a very different culture here and in many other countries.
You did.

"...regardless of whether they want to hear about Christ or not. America is not the world..."

Sounded to me like you were taking a shot.
