Atheism

Atheism is, in a broad sense, the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. In a narrower sense, atheism is specifically the position that there are no deities. Most inclusively, atheism is simply the absence of belief that any deities exist....  Atheism is contrasted with theism, which in its most general form is the belief that at least one deity exists.The term atheism originated from the Greek ἄθεος, meaning "without god", used as a pejorative term applied to those thought to reject the gods worshipped by the larger society. With the spread of freethought, skeptical inquiry, and subsequent increase in criticism of religion, application of the term narrowed in scope. The first individuals to identify themselves using the word "atheist" lived in the 18th century.Arguments for atheism range from the philosophical to social and historical approaches. Rationales for not believing in any supernatural deity include the lack of empirical evidence, the problem of evil, the argument from inconsistent revelations, and the argument from nonbelief. Although some atheists have adopted secular philosophies, there is no one ideology or set of behaviors to which all atheists adhere. Many atheists hold that atheism is a more parsimonious worldview than theism, and therefore the burden of proof lies not on the atheist to disprove the existence of God, but on the theist to provide a rationale for theism   more

Agnosticism

Agnosticism is the view that the truth values of certain claims—especially claims about the existence or non-existence of any deity, as well as other religious and metaphysical claims—are unknown. Agnosticism can be defined in various ways, and is s... ometimes used to indicate doubt or a skeptical approach to questions. In some senses, agnosticism is a stance about the difference between belief and knowledge, rather than about any specific claim or belief. In the popular sense, an agnostic is someone who neither believes nor disbelieves in the existence of a deity or deities, whereas a theist and an atheist believe and disbelieve, respectively. Philosopher William L. Rowe states that in the strict sense, however, agnosticism is the view that humanity does not currently possess the requisite knowledge and/or reason to provide sufficient rational grounds to justify the belief that deities either do or do not exist.Thomas Henry Huxley, an English biologist, coined the word agnostic in 1869. However, earlier thinkers and written works have promoted agnostic points of view. They include Sanjaya Belatthaputta, a 5th-century BCE Indian philosopher who expressed agnosticism about any afterlife, Protagoras, a 5th-century BCE Greek philosopher who was agnostic about the gods, and the Nasadiya Sukta in the Rig Veda which is agnostic about the origin of the universe   more

Muslim

A Muslim, sometimes spelled Moslem, is an adherent of Islam. The Qur'an is the holy book of Islam and Muslims believe that it is the verbatim word of God as revealed to the prophet Muhammad. Muslims also follow the teachings and practices of Muhamma... d as recorded in traditional accounts called hadith. "Muslim" is an Arabic word meaning "one who submits to God".Muslims believe that God is eternal, transcendent and absolutely one. They also believe Allāh is incomparable, self-sustaining and neither begets nor was begotten. The core of Muslim beliefs are to be found in Chapter 112 of the Qur'an, The Purity, in which Allāh instructs the faithful in purity of faith. Muslims believe that Islam is the complete and universal version of a primordial faith that has been revealed before through many prophets including Abraham, Moses and Jesus. Muslims also believe that these previous messages and revelations have been partially changed or corrupted over time and that the Qur'an is the final unaltered revelation from God. Muslims acknowledge that Muhammad is the Seal of the Prophets and the final prophet.Most Muslims accept as a Muslim anyone who has publicly pronounced the Shahadah which states   more

Judaism

Judaism is the religion, philosophy and way of life of the Jewish people. Judaism is a monotheistic religion, with its main inspiration being based on or found in the Hebrew Bible which has been explored in later texts, such as the Talmud. Judaism i... s considered by religious Jews to be the expression of the covenantal relationship God established with the Children of Israel.Judaism is not a homogenous religion, and embraces a number of streams and views. Today, Rabbinic Judaism is the most numerous stream, and holds that God revealed his laws and commandments to Moses on Mount Sinai in the form of both the Written and Oral Torah. Historically, this assertion was challenged by various groups such as the Sadducees and Hellenistic Judaism during the Second Temple period; the Karaites and Sabbateans during the early and later medieval period; and among segments of the modern reform movements. Liberal movements in modern times such as Humanistic Judaism may be nontheistic. Today, the largest Jewish religious movements are Orthodox Judaism, Conservative Judaism and Reform Judaism. A major source of difference between these groups is their approach to Jewish law. Orthodox Judaism maintains that the Torah and Jewish law are divine in origin, eternal and unalterable, and that they should be strictly followed. Conservative and Reform Judaism are more liberal, with Conservative Judaism generally promoting a more "traditional" interpretation of Judaism's requirements than Reform Judaism. A typical Reform position is that Jewish law should be viewed as a set of general guidelines rather than as a set of restrictions and obligations whose observance is required of all Jews. Historically, special courts enforced Jewish law; today, these courts still exist but the practice of Judaism is mostly voluntary. Authority on theological and legal matters is not vested in any one person or organization, but in the sacred texts and rabbis and scholars who interpret them   more

Buddhism

Buddhism is a religion indigenous to the Indian subcontinent that encompasses a variety of traditions, beliefs and practices largely based on teachings attributed to Siddhartha Gautama, who is commonly known as the Buddha, meaning "the awakened one"... . The Buddha lived and taught in the eastern part of the Indian subcontinent sometime between the 6th and 4th centuries BCE. He is recognized by Buddhists as an awakened or enlightened teacher who shared his insights to help sentient beings end their suffering through the elimination of ignorance by way of understanding and the seeing of dependent origination and the elimination of desire, and thus the attainment of the cessation of all suffering, known as the sublime state of nirvāņa.Two major branches of Buddhism are generally recognized: Theravada and Mahayana. Theravada has a widespread following in Sri Lanka and Southeast Asia. Mahayana is found throughout East Asia and includes the traditions of Pure Land, Zen, Nichiren Buddhism, Tibetan Buddhism, Shingon, and Tiantai. In some classifications, Vajrayana—practiced mainly in Tibet and Mongolia, and adjacent parts of China and Russia—is recognized as a third branch, while others classify it as a part of Mahayana   more

Agnostic atheism

Agnostic atheism, also called atheistic agnosticism, is a philosophical position that encompasses both atheism and agnosticism. Agnostic atheists are atheistic because they do not hold a belief in the existence of any deity and agnostic because they...  claim that the existence of a deity is either unknowable in principle or currently unknown in fact. The agnostic atheist may be contrasted with the agnostic theist, who believes that one or more deities exist but claims that the existence or nonexistence of such is unknown or cannot be known   more

Paganism

Paganism is a broad group of indigenous and historical polytheistic religious traditions—primarily those of cultures known to the classical world.In a wider sense, it has also been understood to include any non-Abrahamic folk/ethnic religion. The te... rm pagan was historically used as one of several pejorative Christian counterparts to "gentile" as used in the Hebrew Bible—comparable to "infidel" or "heretic". Modern ethnologists often avoid this broad usage in favour of more specific and less potentially offensive terms such as polytheism, shamanism, pantheism, or animism when referring to traditional or historical faiths.Since the 20th century, "Paganism" has become the identifier for a collection of new religious movements attempting to continue, revive, or reconstruct historical pre-Abrahamic religion. There are roughly 300 million pagans worldwide   more

Pastafarianism

The Flying Spaghetti Monster is the deity of the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster or Pastafarianism, a movement that promotes a light-hearted view of religion and opposes the teaching of intelligent design and creationism in public schools. Al... though adherents state that Pastafarianism is a genuine religion, it is generally recognized by the media as a parody religion.The "Flying Spaghetti Monster" was first described in a satirical open letter written by Bobby Henderson in 2005 to protest the Kansas State Board of Education decision to permit teaching intelligent design as an alternative to evolution in public school science classes. In that letter, Henderson satirized creationist ideas by professing his belief that whenever a scientist carbon dates an object, a supernatural creator that closely resembles spaghetti and meatballs is there "changing the results with His Noodly Appendage". Henderson argued that his beliefs and intelligent design were equally valid, and called for Flying Spaghetti Monsterism to be allotted equal time in science classrooms alongside intelligent design and evolution. After Henderson published the letter on his website, the Flying Spaghetti Monster rapidly became an Internet phenomenon and a symbol used against teaching intelligent design in public schools   more

Hinduism

Hinduism is the dominant religion of the Indian subcontinent, particularly of India, Mauritius and Nepal. It includes Shaivism, Vaishnavism, Smartism among numerous other traditions. Whilst these major sects share rituals, beliefs, and traditions, e... ach denomination has a different philosophy on how to achieve life's ultimate goal, Atma Jnana. Among other practices and philosophies, Hinduism includes a wide spectrum of laws and prescriptions of "daily morality" based on karma, dharma, and societal norms. Hinduism is a categorisation of distinct intellectual or philosophical points of view, rather than a rigid, common set of beliefs.Hinduism is often called the "oldest religion" or the "oldest living major religion" in the world. It consists of many diverse traditions and has no single founder. Although in modern times the Vedic origins of Hinduism are highlighted, among the direct roots of Hinduism are not only the historical Vedic religion of Iron Age India but also the Dravidian and tribal cultures of India. Since Vedic times a process of Sanskritization has been taking place in which "people from many strata of society throughout the subcontinent tended to adapt their religious and social life to Brahmanic norms"   more

Deism

Deism is the belief that reason and observation of the natural world are sufficient to determine the existence of God, accompanied with the rejection of revelation and authority as a source of religious knowledge. Deism gained prominence in the 17th...  and 18th centuries during the Age of Enlightenment—especially in Britain, France, Germany, and in the United States—among intellectuals raised as Christians who believed in one god, but found fault with organized religion and did not believe in supernatural events such as miracles, the inerrancy of scriptures, or the Trinity.Deism is derived from deus, the Latin word for god. The earliest known usage in print of the English term deist is 1621, and deism is first found in a 1675 dictionary. Deistic ideas influenced several leaders of the American and French Revolutions. Two main forms of deism currently exist: classical deism and modern deism   more

Pantheism

Pantheism is the belief that everything composes an all-encompassing, immanent God, or that the universe is identical with divinity. Pantheists thus do not believe in a personal or anthropomorphic god.Pantheism was popularized in the modern era as b... oth a theology and philosophy based on the work of the 17th-century philosopher Baruch Spinoza, whose Ethics was an answer to Descartes' famous dualist theory that the body and spirit are separate. Spinoza held the monist view that the two are the same, and monism is a fundamental part of his philosophy. He was described as a "God-intoxicated man," and used the word God to describe the unity of all substance. Although the term pantheism was not coined until after his death, Spinoza is regarded as its most celebrated advocate   more

Antitheism

Atheism with an anti-authoritarian twist; disbelief/lack of belief in God and gods, coupled with an opposition to the concept of an omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient, totalitarian deity ruling our lives (and afterlives).

LaVeyan Satanism

LaVeyan Satanism or LaVeyanism, often referred to simply as Satanism among most adherents, is a tradition in Satanism founded in 1966 by Anton LaVey. Its core beliefs and philosophies are based on individualism, secular humanism, religious skepticis... m, freethought, epicureanism and "eye for an eye" morality.Contrary to popular belief, LaVeyan Satanism does not involve the worship of "the devil" or any such deities, it is an atheistic philosophy that uses the character of "Satan" as a symbol of pride, carnality, enlightenment, undefiled wisdom, and of a cosmos which Satanists perceive to be permeated and motivated by a force that has been given many names by humans over the course of time.Anton LaVey established Satanism's first and largest religious organization, the Church of Satan, in 1966, and codified Satanic beliefs and practices in The Satanic Bible in 1969. The Church of Satan states that there are a number of Satanists around the world, including both members and non-members. It often rejects the legitimacy of any other organizations of Satanists, dubbing them reverse-Christians, pseudo-Satanists or Devil worshipers   more

Taoism

Taoism is a philosophical and religious tradition that emphasizes living in harmony with the Tao. The term Tao means "way", "path" or "principle", and can also be found in Chinese philosophies and religions other than Taoism. In Taoism, however, Tao...  denotes something that is both the source and the driving force behind everything that exists. It is ultimately ineffable: "The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao."The keystone work of literature in Taoism is the Tao Te Ching, a compact and ambiguous book containing teachings attributed to Laozi. Together with the writings of Zhuangzi, these texts build the philosophical foundation of Taoism. This philosophical Taoism, individualistic by nature, is not institutionalized. Institutionalized forms, however, evolved over time in the shape of a number of different schools, often integrating beliefs and practices that even pre-dated the keystone texts – as, for example, the theories of the School of Naturalists, which synthesized the concepts of yin and yang and the Five Elements. Taoist schools traditionally feature reverence for Laozi, immortals or ancestors, along with a variety of divination and exorcism rituals, and practices for achieving ecstasy, longevity or immortality   more

Scientology

Scientology is a body of beliefs and related practices created by L. Ron Hubbard, beginning in 1952 as a successor to his earlier self-help system, Dianetics. Hubbard characterized Scientology as a religion, and in 1953 incorporated the Church of Sc... ientology in Camden, New Jersey.Scientology teaches that people are immortal beings who have forgotten their true nature. Its method of spiritual rehabilitation is a type of counselling known as auditing, in which practitioners aim to consciously re-experience painful or traumatic events in their past in order to free themselves of their limiting effects. Study materials and auditing sessions are made available to members on a fee-for-service basis, which the church describes as a "fixed donation." Scientology is legally recognized as a tax-exempt religion in the United States, Italy, South Africa, Australia, Sweden, New Zealand, Portugal and Spain; the Church of Scientology emphasizes this as proof that it is a bona fide religion. In contrast, the organization is considered a commercial enterprise in Switzerland, a secte in France, a cult in Chile, and a non-profit in Norway, and its legal classification is often a point of contention   more

Satanism

Satanists are atheists. We see the universe as being indifferent to us, and so all morals and values are subjective human constructions. Our position is to be self-centered, with ourselves being the most important person (the “God”) of our subjecti... ve universe, so we are sometimes said to worship ourselves. Our current High Priest Gilmore calls this the step moving from being an atheist to being an “I-Theist.” Satan to us is a symbol of pride, liberty and individualism, and it serves as an external metaphorical projection of our highest personal potential. We do not believe in Satan as a being or person   more

Shiite Islam

Shiite Islam is The Belif in Islam that is diffrent than Sunni Ibadi or Ahamdi it shares some similarities with Sufism. It's belief is that Ali was Chosen by Allah to rule the Kfalifah and that Muhmmad (PBUH) said that Ali was his successor because ... Allah told him to. We also believe that Imam Mehdi the 12th Imam is on earth and is waiting to revel him self to man and shall revel him self when Jesus Returns to Earth.

Bahá'í Faith

The Bahá'í Faith is a monotheistic religion emphasizing the spiritual unity of all humankind. Three core principles establish a basis for Bahá'í teachings and doctrine: the unity of God, that there is only one God who is the source of all creation; ... the unity of religion, that all major religions have the same spiritual source and come from the same God; and the unity of humanity, that all humans have been created equal, and that diversity of race and culture are seen as worthy of appreciation and acceptance. According to the Bahá'í teachings the human purpose is to learn to know and love God through such methods as prayer, reflection, and being of service to humanity.The Bahá'í Faith was founded by Bahá'u'lláh in 19th-century Persia. Bahá'u'lláh was exiled for his teachings, from Persia to the Ottoman Empire, and died while officially being a prisoner. After Bahá'u'lláh's death, under the leadership of his son, `Abdu'l-Bahá, the religion spread from its Persian and Ottoman roots, and gained a footing in Europe and America, and was consolidated in Iran, where it suffers intense persecution. After the death of `Abdu'l-Bahá, the leadership of the Bahá'í community entered a new phase, evolving from a single individual to an administrative order with both elected bodies and appointed individuals. There are probably more than 5 million Bahá'ís around the world in more than 200 countries and territories   more

Gnosticism

Catharism was a Christian dualist movement that thrived in some areas of Southern Europe, particularly northern Italy and southern France, between the 12th and 14th centuries. Cathar beliefs varied between communities because Catharism was initially...  taught by ascetic priests who had set few guidelines. The Cathars were a direct challenge to the Catholic Church, which denounced its practices and dismissed it outright as "the Church of Satan".Catharism had its roots in the Paulician movement in Armenia and eastern Byzantine Anatolia and the Bogomils of the First Bulgarian Empire, who were influenced by the Paulicians resettled in Thrace by the Byzantines. Though the term "Cathar" has been used for centuries to identify the movement, whether the movement identified itself with this name is debatable. In Cathar texts, the terms "Good Men" or "Good Christians" are the common terms of self-identification. The idea of two gods or principles, one being good the other evil, was central to Cathar beliefs   more

Zoroastrianism

Zoroastrianism, also called Mazdaism and Magianism, is an ancient Iranian religion and a religious philosophy. It was once the state religion of the Achaemenid, Parthian, and Sasanian empires. Estimates of the current number of Zoroastrians worldwid... e vary between 145,000 and 2.6 million.In the eastern part of ancient Persia more than a thousand years BCE, a religious philosopher called Zoroaster simplified the pantheon of early Iranian gods into two opposing forces: Ahura Mazda and Angra Mainyu which were in conflict.Zoroaster's ideas led to a formal religion bearing his name by about the 6th century BCE and have influenced other later religions including Judaism, Gnosticism, Christianity and Islam   more

Sitara says2013-09-05T19:42:04.2499535-05:00
Agnosticism and atheism are NOT religions. Face meet palm.
Deathmonkey7 says2013-09-05T19:45:27.5857212-05:00
No, they're obviously not. But they are part of a persons beliefs. I didn't want to leave them out as it wouldn't paint a complete picture of the beliefs on DDO. Kindly complain about semantics elsewhere.
mrsatan says2013-09-06T04:51:09.7634035-05:00
I see no problem with atheism being here, although the question would need rewording for it to truly fit. Agnosticism, on the other hand, is not based in religion, and has no place here. Its not a religious stance separate from theism or atheism, but rather a stance of incomplete faith or faithlessness. There is no third option here, you either believe God exists, or you don't. Theistic Agnostic: Believes God exists but accepts he might not. Atheistic Agnostic: Disbelieves in Gods existence, but accepts he might exist.
Deathmonkey7 says2013-09-06T06:51:50.6606274-05:00
I agree to a point. However, agnosticism covers areas not covered by the rigid definition of atheism or theism. For instance, I once thought I was atheist, but was not at all content with the definition that I specifically believed that a god could not exist. It was then that I came across agnosticism that better fit my beliefs. (specifically atheistic agnosticism) There's a reason that pretty much any website that asks religion has agnostic as a choice. (including DDO)
mrsatan says2013-09-06T07:04:16.6373778-05:00
Fair enough, but I generally attribute that to a general lack of understanding for what atheism is, which I attribute to a misunderstanding of the word "disbelieve". It's not necessarily an active belief that God doesn't exist, but rather not having the belief that God does exist, regardless of what you may believe beyond that. Of course, I wouldn't blame you for not classifying yourself as atheist because of that general misunderstanding.
mrsatan says2013-09-06T07:09:53.4573985-05:00
Lol, I didn't notice until now that you included Pastafarian, as well. I just got the Gospel in the mail yesterday, and it is flat out awesome. I find I like the concept of Unintelligent Design a hell of a lot more than that of Intelligent Design.
Deathmonkey7 says2013-09-06T12:23:42.3954865-05:00
Haha I agree. I've followed the developments of Pastafarianism since news stories of the original letter being sent. I find the whole religion to be a wonderfully hilarious take on other religious beliefs. May we all be touched by His noodly appendage. :)

Atheism is not a religion it is the opposite of religion. Check the vocabulary.
Artur says2013-09-17T17:14:36.9008792-05:00
Saying that atheism is religions is like to saying : when we turn the tv off, it is a new channel. Being nude is a new mark of clothing. Being hungry is something which is edible
Artur says2013-09-17T17:26:49.5428632-05:00
But there is nothing with atheism being here I think, here we are asked our belief if atheism was not here how would we know that how many atheists are there among us?
tahir.imanov says2013-09-17T21:28:49.4934047-05:00
The appropriate question should be - What religious faith are you? If none, please check one of this options, which describes you best : Atheism, Agnosticism, Agnostic-Atheism, Unsure.

We all human beings are naturally one, then who divided us and made us enemies of each others? There are many religious books in world like the Torah for Jews, the Bible for Christians, the Veda for Hindus and Holy Quran for Muslims. And there are many religions in world also like Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Sikhism, Jainism and Parsi ism and Atheism. There are Millions differences among their thinking, logic, books, beliefs and life styles. Their all followers claim that they are only the followers of true and other all are followers of false, canceled, or incomplete religions. In this situation if a neutral person wants to accept any books or any religions as a guidance for finding the right path to the God who created this universe, then it will be very difficult for him to choose any religions and any books from them. Further there are wars by these religious differences in world since centuries and millions innocent women and children murdered by these wars directly or indirectly. I think the wars are reason for poverty and illiteracy also in 75% human beings in world. I think if there was any one books and any one religions in whole world, there shouldn't be above important problems for human beings and this world should be like a Paradise, while at this time it is like a Hell. So we 7 Billion human beings should assemble on these three steps. (1) We should choose 700 expert religious leaders from all religions through United Nations. (2) We should Say them to research and choose any one religions from above religions, because they all say that any one of them is true surely near to the God who created this universe. (3) Then we all should accept that religion and leave other all religions. Because we all are basically from one father and mother. The God creator is one. The system of this universe is one. The behavior of natures also is one. (4) Without it, We can't establish the peace in world forever, we can’t stop the bomb blast forever, we can’t stop the wars and atomic wars forever, we can’t finish the poverty and illiteracy from the world forever, and we can’t solve the other big and important problems of all human beings too. Because the presence of many religions at a time in world is reason of wars, poverty, illiteracy and destruction of the human beings. (5) According to my deeply research and thinking the natures like the Earth, the Fire, the Air, the water and the human bodies obeys only God of Islam or true followers of God of Islam. They do not obey another Gods or followers of other Gods.

LOL! Atheism is a religion like abstinence is a sex position... Why the dishonesty in the question? Religious motivation?

I have no religious motivations, just general curiosity. I could have worded the question better, that has already been established. The phrasing doesn't alter the point of the question which is to more easily visualize the concentration of religious beliefs (or lack thereof) of the debate.Org userbase.

I have a belief that everyone subconsciously believes in a God but does not realize it.

Atheism is a religion because you're labeling yourself something that you strongly believe in and feel is right. A religion doesn't have consist of the belief in God, but a belief in doctrines, believing what a group of people believe. It's definitely a religion, if you simply state that you don't believe in God, then you're not apart of a religion. Although, the label has definitely become its own sort of cult or religion. That's all religion is, if you are open minded, not necessarily set on particular beliefs, or beliefs that you've created on your own then you're not apart of a religion. Being agnostic is the opposite of religion, not Atheism.

The debate_power who said that everyone secretly believes in God was an idiot.

I'm slightly upset with the atheism picture as not very many atheists are anti-theists....
