As a non-believer, I have a problem with the word "atheist". It think that it confuses some believers and makes a positive statement that should instead be neutral.
I prefer to call myself a non-believer in gods as it would be closer to reality. As mentioned in here and other places, i'm not a stamp acollector if I don't collect stamps, I'm not an aufologist if I don't believe in ufos and I'm not an afaerist if I don't believe in faieries. I just don't collect stamps, don't believe in UFOs or faieries. That's all.
As a non-believer in gods, I think that we should try to avoid the term atheist as it is in a sense meaningless and gives the impression that it actually is something. For an example, it is often confused as a religion or a belief by believers.
So, that's pretty much what I wanted to say on the topic. Thanks for your attention and have a nice day.
