|Fanaticism is bad... even when you agree with them.|
I (and I think everyone here) has commented on this before.
Heck, I sent PZ a personal note about the fanaticism of his followers and the little cult he's developing. In the end, it will be as bad as fundie religions.
I have been basically turned off by pharyngula for a couple of years. An occasional story is good enough to read but the comments have been positively disturbing for a long time.
This time I felt that the corner has been thoroughly turned. This is now fundamentalist atheism and it would be nice to have a label which allows that the world has changed and another ism has slipped into the annals of past-tense.
Post-atheism. A label which acknowledges the theist-atheist fight is no longer relevant. Now there is only information.

Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it
Look what it's done so far
