I believe the word "atheist" should be removed from every language. Atheist should just be normal. Why the **** is there a word for NOT having a religion? Should there also be a word for not collecting bottlecaps?

Atheist is a religion based on the belief that there is no higher power, isn't it?

its the religious belief of no higher beings/gods
#499 to #327 - notthistime ONLINE (05/01/2013) [-]
if atheism is a religion, then that means you have to be religious. You are making it as though there is no choice and everyone has a religion. and if everyone is religious, then there is no point in classifying anything as a religion.

1)The belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, esp. a personal God or gods.

2) Details of belief as taught or discussed.

Well, it's an "ism" which, by definition makes it a belief. May not be what we would define as a religion, but it is a belief structure, like religion....

"Religion is an organized collection of belief systems, cultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to spirituality and, sometimes, to moral values."

Atheism has nothing to do with spirituality...

Notice the A
Which means lack thereof

Therefore it is the complete lack of religion, and can't get any further from theism
User avatar #466 to #399 - dlman (05/01/2013) [-]
theism: belief in the existence of a god or gods; specifically : belief in the existence of one God viewed as the creative source of the human race and the world who transcends yet is immanent in the world (from Merriam-Webster dictionary)

Atheism doesn't mean a complete lack of religion, it means a lack of belief in a diety or higher power. Buddhist don't believe in a god, and Buddhism is still considered a religion.

But, if you separate the 'a' and the rest of the word it becomes "A theism," which theoretically would mean.....

Portal 3 confirmed.

By that logic Autism is a belief structure.

Whether the choice is A or B, it's still a choice to not choose.

I posted this below:

Since it is impossible to prove or disprove the existence of a higher being, atheism can be classified as a religion since it is the belief that there is no god.

If Atheism is a religion, "off" is a TV channel.
User avatar #196 to #139 - itrinx (04/30/2013) [-]

You believe in some sort of god: it's a religion. It's not about having an opinion about it. Atheists are supposed to be ***************** .
#221 to #196 - mykol (05/01/2013) [-]
Atheists are not don't ************ , they believe 100% that there is no god. Agnostics are ***************** , they don't care either way.

#245 to #221 - anon (05/01/2013) [-]
Atheists do not believe 100% that there is no God. They believe there is no proof, therefore there is nothing to believe, but they are not 100% sure, that is illogical. Absence of Proof is not Proof of Absense.

tl;dr Atheism is the belief in nothing
#229 to #221 - anon (05/01/2013) [-]
Pretty sure those people do give a **** since they think something exists.

Are you an idiot?
That's not what a religion is.
A religion is a belief in a supernatural force guiding humans,
the belief in a god.
A religion is not just a belief. Atheism is not a religion. Neither is Buddhism, Taoism, or Confucianism. Agnostic is not a religion either.
By your logic, a conspiracy theory that we've never been to the moon is a religion because it is the "belief we haven't been to the moon."

Is Atheism not a belief on the existence of a higher power?

Religion: a personal set or institutionalized system of religious attitudes, beliefs, and practices

Religion: a cause, principle, or system of beliefs held to with ardor and faith

>isn't religion collective beliefs of something "more".
>and a atheist lack beliefs(thats the definition of the word.)
>doesn't that make a atheist a anti religion.

am I wrong?
#201 to #199 - buckeyeup (05/01/2013) [-]
Atheists maintain the belief that there is no higher being...
User avatar #213 to #201 - mrpo (05/01/2013) [-]
or a rejecting of belief in a higher being

it's all in the words man
#223 to #213 - buckeyeup (05/01/2013) [-]
Since the existence of a higher being cannot be proven or dis-proven, its a belief
User avatar #246 to #223 - mrpo (05/01/2013) [-]
but it doesn't make it a religion, since religion is collective beliefs in a higher being

I get your point, but youre using the wrong word
#147 to #139 - anon (04/30/2013) [-]
But... religion is the belief in some sort of god... but atheists don't believe in any god...
