    Atheism is a religion like bald is a hair colour.

    You shifted ground. Predictably.
    You didn't school me about anything. I didn't shift ground. Shifting means changing. Did you know that? Oh ****, did I just school you?!?!

    Atheism is not a religion by your definition as it makes no statements or beliefs upon mankind's place in the omniverse
    Sure it does. It says that what is is what is. And that's all.

    For the 800th time, you're wrong.

    You don't understand what agnosticism is. Or atheism, for that matter.

    Agnosticism is a stance about what kinds of knowledge are possible, usually that knowledge of deities can't be known.

    Atheism is a practical philosophy for how we should assess reality, given the absence of evidence for deities.

    I really wish people who know jack about philosophy would stop tossing around terms they don't understand.

    What is biased about it? Oh, I see. You didn't know those were things.

    Practical philosophy is a specific branch of philosophy. There are lots of philosophies about how we should assess reality.

    You don't sound like you have even the faintest idea about the mechanics of this discussion you've joined.

    Don't need to. Your posts kinda speak for themselves, as do your "likes" towards someone else who hasn't the faintest idea what they're talking about.
