it is pretty much a religion because its an accepted label they are brandishing. Being something like agnostic isnt as much an extreme, its more realistic, so indentifying as an atheist is like saying without a doubt there are no gods or no reason for religion, which honestly they can't say without a bias, because they don't know, religion is like this also though because its claim something is real when they don't have evidence. So agnosticism is sort of like the middle ground. but also meh.
Wait, are you saying that claiming something there is no proof for make more sense than claiming something isn't real because there's no proof?
Anygay, no. Atheism isn't a religion. It's lacking the belief that gods exist. While I don't believe any gods exist, I, unlike many theists, am willing to admit that I could be wrong.
I'm unsure of what he was claiming, but atheism is a religion. At the very least it functions just like one in most cases.
Awesome, finally an agnostic atheist. I've been wondering where the more moderate atheists were in some of these threads.
But atheism itself is not doing something. That's like saying doing nothing is an exercise regimen, or doing nothing is a plan to get your life on the right track.
I don't know about these forums, but in real life, I usually end up talking to atheists that claim that they have proof gods don't exist. I'm usually like 'Lol, no. No one has any proof either way about the existence of gods. Just stop.'
