So atheism Is A Religion? I Heard It Has Its Leaders, Preachers, Tenets And Followers.
I really did not know this but when you think about it ..it is not surprising.
Honestly I've never heard of it and I wouldn't understand it. Nevertheless ANY idea can have preachers, leaders and followers, so why not...
Who is so desperate to call Atheism a religion? Anyway, this is not something atheists would be worrying about..!!
How can Atheism be a Religion ?
It is a subject that, like everything else in life, has its champions and celebrity spokes people but they hardly qualifies them as leaders nor can I see people flocking to them as some sort of anti-religious Guru.
The idea is surely someone’s idea of a joke. What next their own TV Chanel ?
If it was it would be a far more balanced and open religion that would continually question itself and allow others to join in. Just think, no more preaching, no self righteous pious folk shouting about their way is the only way. No arrogant groups demonising other groups who also don't believe in a particualr faith. No violence no torture no crucifixions no falsehoods no persecution and no lies.
Why I'd be tempted to join. We could in one fell swoop demolish hypocrasy and render TV evangilists penniless.
cue the right wing christians.......here they come beating their drum..........
A religion is a belief and worship of a God or Gods....
Atheism means without belief in God or Gods.
Therefore athiesm cannot be a religion.....
if you say so. i guess anything can be a religion to certain people. heck some folks even believe in a thing called "god" . go figure
By definition atheism is the lack of religion, so the answer to your question is no. There's a popular analogy: if atheism is a religion, then bald is a hair color.
Atheism is the belief of not believing in any god. So ur believing? thats the same as religion!! someone made up the WORD Religion and Atheism! so if u believe in what some made up then ur weak minded and cannot think for yourselves!!!

Do you think women should be allowed or are fit to become preachers/ministers?This has been a sore subject in my family.(I think they should). Some people believe that women do not have a place in religion as a minister or preacher. In the Holy Bible, it talks about women being seen and not heard...

I just saw a film called, "The Last Exorcism" a couple of weeks ago, and the film has a main protagonist named Reverend Cotton Marcus. Now, even though he's performed exorcisms since he was like 10 yrs old, and he's been studying the bible since he was a kid. Going onto become...

Atheism only means the lack of a belief in God. Why is it so hard for Christians to realize that we dismiss their religion for the same reasons that they dismiss all other religions? It doesn't make us horrible people, immoral, or mean that we are going to hell. It just means that we think the...

Is Atheism really just another religion or faith based concept?It seems like the notions that there is a God or there is not a God, are both founded in belief because there is not proof either way. Well there is proof, but not conclusive in either direction. So aren't organizations with set forth...

Just a question, but it would seem if there really were no God, then Atheists couldn't exist. Is Atheism a religion? They definitely seem to be unified by a common belief.
