Many Christians seem to believe that atheism is a religion, but no one with an accurate understanding of both concepts would make such a mistake. Atheism lacks every one of the characteristics of religion. At most, atheism doesnât explicitly exclude most of them, but the same can be said for almost anything. Thus, itâs not possible to call atheism a religion. It can be part of a religion, but it canât be a religion by itself. They are completely different categories: atheism is the absence of one particular belief while religion is a complex web of traditions and beliefs.
Read on, as the article pokes holes through nine different myths perpetrated by theists about atheism :
An atheist states there is no God.
Agnostics have no faith, they are reserving judgment on whether there is a Creator.
It takes faith to say there is no God.
Note, lately some atheists are trying to redefine atheism to be agnosticism.
Which then mucks this all up. Because why would we need an definition for agnostics.
