Atheism is not.... by moni158 Atheism is not.... by moni158
:iconimrlynotimpressedplz: ...... Just .... seriously people who think this?? Its annoying....

You wont believe how many people will say "oh you're an atheist? did you know that means your religious, since atheism is a religion, since you BELIEVE and have FAITH that there isn't a God"....... This completely contradicts the point of being an Atheist in the first place. ( definition:Atheism is commonly defined as the position that there are no deities. It can also mean the rejection of belief in the existence of deities. A broader definition is simply the absence of belief that any deities exist.)

Its not a religion its just means you DON'T believe or have a LACK of faith.

Reminds me of a documentary I watched ( not the one where they said chimpanzees giving birth to a human was evolution ) This documentary depicted scientific research centers as churches for the religion of atheism and Darwin's book "Origin of species' as their bible, and Darwin as their prophet.....

Tl;DR Don't be lazy, go back and read it. :eyes:

Edit* and personally? I hate the word atheist...I think its a pointless word, like an a-space...( a space void of any object, organism, etc) But then again Atheist does have its differences e.g. it is a firm rejection of a God (unlike Agnosticism). Waiting for the SEE HAHAHA YOU HAVE FAITH THERE IS NO GOD! argument... but no that is not how it works. I don't believe it because I have looked at the whole situation rationally and I don't think its a plausible idea... It is just ridiculous, the supernatural is a myth and that has been proven by the fact there has never being a single documented case. I am sorry but faith just isn't good enough for me, I need proof and solid facts.

I believe in a higher power, of what I'm not sure, but I don't have a religion. I wasn't baptized or anything, so I am an atheist. It's stupid how people think atheism is a religion, because it means exactly to not have a religion, doesn't it? I agree with you, even though I am an atheist xD

I love Finland... So many atheists and I no one here ever even talks about religions. It would make me feel uncomfortable.

Seeing how atheism has it's own dogmas, symbols and leaders it's pretty hard not to think of it as one.

Famous atheists =! Atheist leaders
Things famous atheists say =! Dogma
Symbols used by some atheists =! Representative of all atheists

Religion: Noun. A set of beliefs concerning the cause [atheists have no unified belief in universal origin], nature[ditto], and purpose of the universe[ditto], especially when considered as the creation of a superhuman agency or agencies[ditto], usually involving devotional and ritual observances[ditto], and often containing a moral code governing the conduct of human affairs.[ditto]
