I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.
Definitions that define the word with the word are useless. You're looking up what a word means. Why would you define that word with itself? Makes No Sense.
It's like defining particle as such:
A small localized particle to which can be ascribed several physical or chemical particle properties such as volume or mass
This is saying that bald is a type of hair color. Does that make any sense?Atheism is a belief, regardless of if it is a religion or not.
You are redefining Atheism. Atheism is once again, a lack of belief in deities. Whether or not someone moves past that into active denial is something else. You are trying to cast what is the core of atheism as a religion in the same way that saying bald is a type of hair color.The tenet/thing believed is "God's, God, your God doesn't exist." it is held by a group of people that has been categorized by society, "Atheists." The position that there is no proof of religion is the underlying opinion to support the over tenet.
This is very, very, very wrong. Do you have a belief on everything that exists? What's your belief on a special type of giant isopod that only lives in a small area of the waters off the Antarctic? Had no idea what those were? Congratulation, you had a lack of belief."Disbelieving" is kind of like "irregardless". We created the term to describe something but disbelief, as a term, is confusing the very people who created it. There is no such thing as a lack of belief. You can believe in a lack of something which is what atheists are doing. People can believe in negative positions. But atheism is not a lack of a belief at any point.

Fortunately, 85% of the people on this forum appear to have a firm enough grasp on logic and language to understand that atheism isn't a religion, but for those 15% who do I'd be curious what they consider to not be religion.
