Atheism is also a religion
If you equate religion to simply a worldview or philosophical belief, then yes, atheism could possibly be defined as a religion. However, I think most define religion as a group of people who worship the same supernatural deity or deities. That being the case, atheism is the antithesis of religion – quite literally.
no.atheism is not a religion in that it has no belief in the supernatural.
Yeah in what way is atheism a religion exactly? There are no dogmas, rituals, moral code, no belief in the supernatural, or claims about an afterlife. You need an obtuse definition of religion to put atheism as a religion. If your definition lumps essentially all man made institutions or philosophies then it explains nothing and is worthless.
It is really surprising that anyone on this forum can think so. It would be good if he can define religion and show how atheism can be a religion.
