We should just invent a new term.  One that specifically means a non-theist with a scientifically naturalistic worldview and a humanist morality.

For myself, I find that definition too limited. Do I really have to put "naturalist" in front of "atheist" in order to properly describe myself? A naturalistic system of knowledge is clearly implied.

I define atheism as having no active belief in God. Not to mention that we don't apply this 100% certainty rule to anything else.
