    You accept that a rejection of a belief in another God is a religion all to itself.

    This may be worth another poll. Just to see how few people agree with you.
    Having a religious belief and being vehement about it wouldn't make it a religion?

    Isn't that all a religion is?

    How odd.

    Being vehement about it has nothing to do with whether it's a religious belief. There are plenty of people who believe in gods, but who are not vehement about it at all. Are they non-religious now?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I gotta wonder how many rational people consider rejecting a belief in a God(s) to be a religion unto itself.

    You're right. We've already established that it's a religious belief.

    There are plenty of people who believe in gods, but who are not vehement about it at all. Are they non-religious now?
    Basically. It's part of their culture, but nothing really more. Do you consider the guy that goes to church once a year with his family for a holiday "religious", if it never broaches his mind otherwise? Why or why not?

    I never said it was a religion, actually. I said it could be construed as one. You're welcome to look it up. I hope you got some practice after yesterday's debacle. I did say it's a religious belief and...drum roll, please....IT IS!

    You, on the other hand, just argued for days and tens of pages about the existence of god or lack thereof (did you ever even answer if you believed god didn't exist? hmmm). You might be construed to have built your own personal religion around your religious beliefs.

    And that matters why?

    And you are unwilling to answer.

    Why is that?

    If you think I didn't answer your question, you have an even weaker grasp of what atheism means then I thought.

    Atheism is not a religion because there are no scheduled gatherings for the purpose of worship. If atheism is a religion, then so is biology.
