If that makes me a militant secularist, so be it. I should also warn you, however, that I am a militant non-murderist as well.
Ehh, not quite.Secularization
is the social de-emphasis of religious values for rational values. In that context "Militant Secularist" does indeed make sense as someone intent on forcing modern/rationalist values on the religiously faithful, and it meshes rather nicely if your religion has the paranoid doctrines that the rest of the world is out to get you and those of your faith and throw you in an arena with a bunch of hungry lions.
I think the term you are looking for is Militant Agnostic (our motto: I don't know, and you don't either!").
Welcome to the parade, comrade!
The Militant Agnostic how well I have known and how deeply I have loved The Militant Agnostic.
What do you care, if, I carry a bunch of Fairy Tails in my head?
I might tell you one or two. If, we hung out together, then. Some are weird enough to turn you White. But; (Shrug.) Some people get paid to make up lies. I can tell the truth. It's scary.

Magically it all works so well. As long as we work well together.
Nice Fairy Tail as Fairy Tails go.
The Rodia Gauge is the oldest working machine on the Planet. Wikipedia says not much about it and it bugs me. Wikipedia knows everything. I want it to know about that machine. It was the first thing that I knew that wiki did not. I had a hard copy book about that machine.
So, interesting. Historians can look at the log books and see wars and famine and stuff. That is what they say. (Shrug.)
Anyone else care? I no longer have the book.
The link above is fairly good. Not much math.
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.
