I think labels in general are doing everyone a disservice. I call myself an atheist just to avoid confusion when talking to people who believe in labels.? I would rather call myself an alabelist.
As for calling oneself a "bright," that sounds a bit too condescending for my taste.

Never liked this label, IMO a pretty awful choice of words. I dare anyone, next time when asked about your wordlviews, to tell people "I'm a bright".
IMO the brights are doing themselves a huge disservice by calling themselves that. Makes them come across as someone who needs to tell people they're smart, otherwise the people will not know.

  • A bright's worldview is free of supernatural and mystical elements
  • The ethics and actions of a bright are based on a naturalistic worldview
