Religion definition: the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods.

Although people who dont believe in any religions counts as the 3rd biggest religon group if you know what I mean.
Ex. Christianity... Islam... Non- believers...
its not a religion itself

I REALLY hate people like you who take debates when Con agrees with Pro without a single argument. And again, where on earth did you get that definition of Religion "the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a personal God or gods."? Which has 0% to do with the subject Atheism is NOT a religion.

"Well you believe in god and you cannot even prove he even exists. "

I believe in God because I am proving the alternative in the dichotomy is utterly preposterous. You can't prove that the magical, expanding and creating vacuum sealed explosion happened, so were in a similar boat.

The thing that uniquely defines religion is belief in supernatural entities. There is a big difference between having faith in one's knowledge and gaining knowledge from one's faith.

@Edlvsjd - Awe the slumbering piece of plastic vomit thinks he knows what I know to be true and so does everybody else and can prove it. Well you believe in god and you cannot even prove he even exists. Way to go avalanche man who snorts his brains on top of old smoggy. See you don't get that atheists as well as scientists say "I don't know" all the time when they don't know something whereas those words of "I don't know" are never used because they are true terrorist words because dare YOUR god be imperfect under your happy hairy hard offs of your invented hell? Of course not. And I'm the idiot? No. You are by inventing the excuse that atheism is a religion when you cannot even pay attention to its mere definition. And since you are so smort, sorry, smart, where is that book or video or internet program that unifies atheists worldwide? We as atheists are individuals. You as christians are a bunch of beach blanket tidy bowl babes. Now say "duh for the camera that god doesn't exist until proved". Oh but you have your bible. Oh and oh yeah it does NOT unify christians. Not by a long-shot as there's no consensus as YOUR sad pathetic god would never choose text as a source of communication, the worst form of communication possible you fricken imbecile. Even a simpleton stooge stored in a freezer can figure that one out. Its so much fun pasteurizing your eggnog brain. I'm so very glad I made your day better. Please do not post me again unless you have something intelligent to say.

So, your "evidence" is "but, but muh definition!" You have a belief system based on zero empirical evidence, consisting 99% of false assumptions, conjecture, and false premises. You believe that nothing exploded by the force of gravity, and created everything. So this supernatural force, that you assume is truth, this event that you vehemently promote that you have zero practical evidence for. If that isn't as close to a religion as religion, you're an idiot.

@ idiot Edlvsjd Yah didn't pay any attention to vidies #2 or #3. Duh. Unless you are remarkably unintelligent which goes without saying. Have a nice life and continue to ignore pulverizing evidence and continue to be the obvious teeny bopper that you are and continue to have absolutely no knowledge into what the flying pregnant fetus screw you are squawking about just like the typical christian does ESPECIALLY when slapped in the face with actual evidence that you cannot refute. You cannot even pay attention to simpleton dictionary definitions. Nah. You go off into your own kiwi junked upped lavatory oozing pure prairie pink league panties and invent your own to make yourself look good in your own mind. That only does your produced, starring, scripted, porno shoot any good. Bye.

Atheists have faith in the words of men, theists have faith in the words of men. Neither story (big baptism or creationism) can be empirically verified, so atheism can be considered a religion, based on this logic, regardless of whether the god "gravity" or any other god is worshipped
