So, it's helpful to distinguish between atheists that attack all religions vs. just fundamentalists? I disagree. There is a reason they use fundamentalists as the punching bag rather than those more similar to you. The only difference, in my mind, between a "new atheist" and your run o' the mill atheist is how outspoken one is. Which is a rather pointless distinction in my mind.
Do most atheists attack all religions and religious people? I don't think so. And atheists aren't the only ones attacking fundamentalists, I see religious organizations fight fundamentalists and evangelicals just as hard as atheists.
And the problem is that new atheists don't just attack fundamentalists, but they use arguments against fundamentalists to attack all theism. That's a major distinction in my mind. I think the distinction is helpful because its easy to discard attacks and arguments against straw man gods (fundamentalist gods), much like its easy to attack fundamentalism and strict creationists (earth is 10,000 years old).
If I came in here and said "atheists piss me off, there is no reason why evolution and theism can't coexist just fine" you would say "well I never said that anyway so why would I piss you off?" The same as if someone came in and said "religion is horse shit, how am I supposed to believe that some guy lived in a whale and the earth is 10,000 years old" I would say "well I don't think so either, but that's not important." Categories can be helpful is all.
