Richard Dawkins' attempt to rename atheists as "Brights" never caught on, but fortunately, Muriel Gray of the Sunday Herrald is ready with a replacement. Get ready for… the Enlightenists!

So let's get organised. Someone tried a group called "The Brights", but the name is so smug and pretentious that it's not surprising it was a damp squib. Why not take instead The Enlightenment as the inspiration? Enlightenmentists is a bit of a mouthful, so let's try Enlightenists. I know. I just made it up. It's the best I can do, but we’re going to need a label if we are hoping to get things like our own schools.

"Tired of all the religious garbage? It's time to become an Enlightenist"
