Derisive diatribes about the state of the nation, nation states and swerving leftward

Being a non-non-atheist
I ran across a blog today in which a self-proclaimed atheist discovered that there were in fact a zillion different types of athiests and so found himself in a philosophical conundrum. I find it interesting that anyone should feel the need to define themselves with a negative. While I don't believe in a divine force that is someow distinct from the universe itself, I wouldn't bother describing myself as "atheist" any more than I would call myself a "non-Republican" or as a "non-Fascist."
