    Re: Does water have a taste? Is atheism a religion?

    Some water does have taste. Would I consider something absolutely pure without any kind of taste to have a taste? Not sure, probably not, but I don't see the correlation to Athiesm.

    I don't think athiesm is a religion per se, but its a belief system as are religions. Its a trust and a belief in the notion that all things are explainable through natural laws and there is nothing outside of those natural laws.

    There are other belief systems that also aren't religions. For example, someone that believes we are simply the results of a genetic experiment by aliens, or that we are simply an alternate reality that is nothing but the dream of some other being, are both belief systems that also doesn't have any semblance to traditional "religion" as its commonly used.

    I would actually say your agnostic types as being the closest to no taste. The people who simply don't know whether or not there is a god/supernatural/higher being/etc and simply don't care, holding no real belief in it existing or not existing.

    Re: Does water have a taste? Is atheism a religion?

    Religion has left a bad taste in my mouth, many felt that religion should be forced, those doing doing this probably never realized it..
    Good water does have a taste, its far from pure , which is nigh impossible on an economic basis.
    And atheism is NOT a religion, nor can it be..

    No. It doesn't. It contains the molecules H2O. Nothing else. If it contains something else, it's water AND something else.

    Can you explain the 'atheist' belief concerning the nature of the universe? What about the fundamental set of beliefs and practices of atheism? How does show 'devotion' to atheism? You're grasping at straws.

    I think that's rain water.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Hmmm, for all intents it's pretty much clean water.
    Usually "tasteless."

    I think water only has a "taste" is because we need it so much.
    Our brains have tricked us into the liking it so much by adding a satisfaction level to drinking it.
