^ I think because this forum aims to be inclusive of all faiths, that is a good idea.

Two more. Theism, and "No True Scotsman"

Theism, because it's a term where although it might be intuitively understandable from monotheism/theology and other similar works, it's sometimes not clear that it's intended to be inclusive language, rather than an aid to stereotyping.

And the "No True Scotsman" approach because it's often used, without being understood as a problem.

See this thread (page 2 and 3) for the conversation that caused me to say these two terms should be included, plus an explanation of what they are.

Logical fallacy.

Apparently this one isn't always intuitively clear to people, as outlined in this thread. Fee free to use the links in that thread to the skeptics guide and the other one explaining different logical fallacies - that's important knowledge if you're a more intuitive thinker talking to someone to whom logic (and knowledge of logical fallacies) is important.

Human being, as in you are human.

To most Christians that's code for, "you are a sinner".

To evolutionists, it means you are the bipedal offspring of an ameoba ancestor.

To a tiger, it means you are a nice light snack
