You already probably know this, but I was a fundie for much of my life.

You know exactly what is at odds with being an atheist: Belief in one or more deities. What's missing is your commentary on why you experience so much nostalgia for theistic fundamentalism. You probably don't comment because there are nothing but platitudes on the topic of desiring to believe in deities and the judgements they dictate. Nostalgia for fundamentalism is not difficult to understand. You now express your fundamentalism in a different way, but you have not abandoned fundamentalism. Belief in deities is not really a significant category compared with fundamentalism. The latter is harder to shake than you admit, or perhaps even realize.
