      Atheism is a lack of belief, so it isn't a religion. But if we have no religion and change religion... do we change to a religion? We don't really change religion then, it's joining one... so...?

      You are basically using the definition of "religion" to explain how Atheism is not a religion. Yeah, flawless logic!

      Calling atheism a religion is like calling bald a hair color, or not collecting stamps a hobby. Atheism is simply a lack of belief in a god or gods, nothing more. If we deconstruct the term ‘atheism’ we find ‘a – theism’ which means ‘without – theism’ which, in turn, means ‘without – belief in god(s)’. It is, therefore, not a positive belief or a claim to knowledge. Instead, it is the default position of doubt, uncertainty and skepticism one may have regarding claims made by theists. Every human-being ever born begins life as an implicit atheist and must be taught the concept of theism or, more commonly, indoctrinated with it. Atheism has no sacred texts, objects, places or times, no rituals or creation stories, no positive beliefs, central tenants, modes of worship or supernatural claims, no implicit or derived moral codes, philosophies or world views and no central organisation or church. It fulfills none of the criteria that define a religion. Atheists may subscribe to any additional ideologies, philosophies and belief systems they choose, eg. Buddhism, Jainism, Universalism, Environmentalism, Pragmatism, Liberalism, Socialism, Libertarianism, Conservatism, etc. They may even appreciate components of traditional religion and spiritualism, including any supernatural elements unrelated to a god. Common among many atheists, however, is an appreciation for secularism, rationalism, humanism, skepticism, naturalism, materialism and freethinking – none of which are implicit or derived from atheism, nor necessary in order to lack belief.

      Blurtex33, you are exactly what i would describe as a closemimded asshole. Most of your accusations are correct about atheism, free-minded, rational and whatnot, but atheism is a religion, just not an organized religion. Atheists, such as myself, believe there is no god/higher power. But just because we have no church, special holidays, or worshipings,

      (accident) does not mean that it is not a religion. We don't have churches because a church without a god to worship would be an extreme waste of time. Same goes for holidays. I know you probably won't read this, but hopefully other people will.

      Atheists do not exist, because that would mean having true proof that one does not exist, and having any "proof" would mean that one does, in fact, exist. Agnostic is the closest you'll get.

      Primus, God is unfalsifiable hypothesis, meaning there is no evidence to show any existence or lack thereof, so basically, nobody can prove God(s) exists and nobody can prove definitively that it doesn't. Your religion is what you choose to believe. I believe there is no God because it seems illogical and only constructed to quell fear of the unknown, e.g. What happens when I die, how was the universe created. There is value in religion, but in my opinion it should not be beloved as fact because it is so ridiculous

      Atheists do not believe there's no God, they just don't believe there's a God. The difference is that the belief that there's no God implies a positive claim that requires proof, while the DISbelief in a God implies a negative claim, and the only requirement for such a claim is the absence of proof for the positive claim that "there is a God". Since there truly is no proof for "there is a God", the disbelief in a God is logically valid, so atheism is not a religion, but rather a logical standpoint.

      Thanks for generalizing. Why shouldn't our religious standpoint be defended anyway?

      -axialgold- exactly they have no proof at all it makes no sense religion was created to help understand the unknown

      Religions were created because those creators were at least intelligent enough to know that there is a God.

      There is a reason there is no proof of a God, it is that you must be able to have faith in something you don't know is real or not

      That is not unlike saying I could go from non-denominational christian to methodist. Same belief.

    I keep hitting the wrong button. I mean to say WOOOO HOOOO for the lack of 2 party systems in Canada!!!!! NDP to Green! Maybe Liberal. Anything but the Conservatives or the Bloq Quebecois. It's at questions like this when being Canadian makes it a no brainer (of course I mess up by hitting the wrong button. face palm)
