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.

There's far too much info in the vidies to convey within this debate. Why do you think I posted them? They are all irrefutable.

Its rather point blank obvious that you did not watch ANY of the vidies which only adds to your utter lack of edumacation and idiocies.
Religion 1. a set of beliefs concerning the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe, especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies, usually involving devotional and ritual observances, and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs. (notice the use of the word "beliefs"?) 2. a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects: the Christian religion; the Buddhist religion. 3. the body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs and practices: a world council of religions. (again using the word "beliefs").
Now you were dumb enough to use the word "faith". 1. confidence or trust in a person or thing:
faith in another's ability. 2. belief that is not based on proof: He had faith that the hypothesis would be substantiated by fact. (well duh and double duh) 3. belief in God or in the doctrines or teachings of religion: the firm faith of the Pilgrims. 4. belief in anything, as a code of ethics, standards of merit, etc.:
to be of the same faith with someone concerning honesty. 5. a system of religious belief: the Christian faith; the Jewish faith. 6. the obligation of loyalty or fidelity to a person, promise, engagement, etc.:
Failure to appear would be breaking faith. 7.the observance of this obligation; fidelity to one's promise, oath, allegiance, etc.: He was the only one who proved his faith during our recent troubles.
Atheism 1. the doctrine or belief that there is no God. 2. disbelief in the existence of a supreme being or beings. (which is a HUGE MONUMENTAL DIFFERENCE from anything you implied or said)

If you'd like to put your arguments into your own words instead of posting videos of other people's arguments, I'd take this. I'm not refuting 3 videos worth of arguments in a limited amount of characters

To believe what is written down in books with no supporting evidence is called faith. Faith in men's words. This is the same as religion
