I guess I am pragmatic to my very soul now that I think about it. But again when I decided to find the source of morality when I was a young person, I found that it did not exist except for what I built. So I built one because I decided that if I ever wanted to be happy, I had to find a way to be around other people and get along with them because I, like any human, am a social creature and have certain emotional needs. Pragmaticism is the tool I used I guess because it was the only tool there was when I was a hardcore atheist.
My snide comment was meant to get back at Ethereal for his snide comment, it was wrong and I apologize.
