@Mathgeekjoe, I think the definition of religion is more relevant here. I think religion has certain properties that should be satisfied - for example, it should have a central doctrine, and maybe a belief that isn't founded entirely on rational observations/deductions. You may have a different definition for religion, and thus think atheists are religious. BTW, just curious: I'm an apatheist. Would you consider me religious?
@Mathgeekjoe. I Include all atheists in that statement, whether they identify themselves as one or not. Whether you believe in God/Gods/higher powers, or not, undoubtedly affects all of our decisions and choices.
I should also add, I think that everyone has religious beliefs, although not all may choose to follow or support organised religion. @Diqiucun_Cunmin, I would suggest that you may not identify yourself as religious, but you certainly have some religious belief.
@Diqiucun_Cunmin, firstly, your apathy will have affected your outlook on life, which then affects decision making.
Secondly, although you have every right to say that right NOW you don't believe either way, it would be naive to suggest that if you did or didn't believe in a God, your life and actions wouldn't change. Religion is often described as a relationship between man and god, and all relationships affect our perceptions. You can not suggest that if you had different friends, been taught by different teachers or had different parents, your opinions and choices would be exactly the same either way. Belief in God, or lack of, works in exactly the same way.
I love @Applestoapples comment on the poll. "They think that their god is science even though it's really not."
The reason we are atheist is because we don't believe in a spiritual being that rules over all, not because we worship science. That is called scientology.
@mathgeekjoe uhh, no it's a disbelief that there is a god. @applestoapples that's called scientology, not atheism. And scientology is a cult. @jacksunmadness faith is belief without evidence. Atheists tend not to beleive anything without evidence. They don't have faith. @logical.Assasinator you should still acknowledge that it's not a religion.
