A religion doesn"t have to posit a god who must be identified or worshiped. Some religions are polytheistic (Hinduism, Mormonism), Some monotheistic (Judaism, Christianity, Islam), Some non-theistic (Buddhism). I"d say atheists and their religion are "anti-theistic. " But their atheism is religious nonetheless. You have your own world view. Materialism (the view that the material world is all there is) is the lens through which atheists view the world. Far from being the open-minded, Follow-the-evidence-wherever thinkers they claim to be, They interpret all data ONLY within the very narrow worldview of materialism. They are like a guy wearing dark sunglasses who chides all others for thinking the sun is out. Muslims view the world that there is one god and Jesus is not his son or equal. You even have your own Orthodoxy. Orthodoxy is a set of beliefs acceptable to a faith community. Just as there are orthodox Christian beliefs, There is an atheist orthodoxy as well. In brief, It is that EVERYTHING can be explained as the product of unintentional, Undirected, Purposeless evolution. No truth claim is acceptable if it cannot be subjected to scientific scrutiny.

You're right. Atheism is NOT a religion. And you should NOT plagiarize my headliner post. Come up with your own ideas for god's sake.

Backwardseden, You literally keep making the same points over and over again. You ignore all the contentions made by your opponent, And cook up a string of Ad Hominems and Bible verses that are irrelevant to the debate. You don't attack the argument, You attack the person and that-is-why-you've-lost-54 out of 56 debates.
