Religion :  "the belief in a god or in a group of gods" "an organized system of beliefs, ceremonies, and rules used to worship a god or a group of gods" http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/religion

I must say I have been guilty of calling it a religion in itself ,in the terms of it being a belief system such as religion is against all religions in the same sense that people believe in religion. so in that sense as an analogy I don't think it's too off-key to call it a religion, if that makes sense.?
Kara Lyons
Makes sense 
Atheism is a belief that something came from nothing and we evolved over millions of years thus rejecting idea that god exists it is however a belief in something else therefore it counts as a religion. Religion is a belief in something. My question however when we die and find out there is god was belief in god a religion because their belief was true, same goes other way.

+ccrpalex no it isn'tatheism is simply not believing in a god or gods that's all it is. Some atheists believe what you say but some atheists have mustaches it is entirely seperate
Kara Lyons
I agree
started out by defining atheism, which is a good start, but if you're going to ask the question 'is atheism a religion' you also need to define religion.

I think the idea that atheism is a religion stems from the fact that some atheists defend atheism as if it was a religion. A truly scientific mind would be open to all possibilities. Shunning an un-provable theory , is as illogical as embracing one. 
Kara Lyons
atheism is not a religion but one could say believing in evolution is a religion even though it does not include anything supernatural or any dieties
David Roberts
Atheism is a religion like bald is a hair color.

You will understand that irksome moment when your step-brother (who's been a loser permanently) gets an incredible girl to fall for him in 3 weeks?! God, that happened. I am aware I should be happy but I would prefer if it was me. He smiled as he told me he learned from the Cupid Love System (Search in Google for it). I would like to hide out inside of a cave as we speak.

Life sucks. My good friend has started seeing a stunning young woman mainly because 2 months ago he signed up to an internet site called Master Attraction (Google it if you wish to learn more.) I'm green with envy since I would like to fall in love too. I'm gonna look at this Jake Ayres guy's material and see if it will help a person like me. Surprising thing is, my friend once had Zero good fortune with females. How do you transform that quickly? His lady's a fucking model!
