I think you are talking at  cross purposes here; GM is talking about holding a dogma while SJH is talking about being militant.  And I agree with the points both of you are making, but I do believe GM is using the word "fundamentalist" more correctly.

Oh - they're out there GM - I feel like that sometime myself, but on the other hand I rest assured there is no argument at present (as there's no evidence), that there is no valid argument for the existence of any god.

I don't know how I possibly managed to actually create my own rules seeing as I'm an Atheist with no rules let alone morals "according to the fundys" But some how I popped these too out and have lived by them and raised my kids with them

1.Be Kind

2. Learn lots

If it's not kind or your not learning from it you probably shouldn't be doing it...

Don't get me wrong they are not Atheist rules they are my rules and I happen to be an Atheist :)
