I don't like the phrase militant atheist - what's the worst we've done? Near as I can tell, it's to voice strong opinions, blog and write books. However, if those things make one militant, then we have found a militant agnostic.
In discussions relating to PZ Myers' post on Painter's Law, Simon made the following statement:
I do not care if there is a god or not because by the very definitions and as stated by the prophet Dawkins it is impossible to prove there is no god so it is unlikely I will ever know. You have your belief that there is no god, others have a belief that there is a god and I choose not to have an opinion on the matter, I lack concern however the topic does interest me so I am hardly apathetic.Simon will not make his mind up on the issue, but will insist on voicing his opinions about it, strongly.
