    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‚Äôs 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.....

    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!!!
