Is atheism a religion?
Looked objectively it seems to be these days.
It has a creation myth - Evolution.
It has multiple philosophies - for example: life sucks and then you die. Or if you like, eat drink and be merry for tommorow you die.
It has an 'afterlife' belief - either oblivion or 'rejoining the life force.'
It definitely has followers and zeolots.
What do you think ? Agree/Disagree and why.
But watch out for the kicker - if you agree it's a religion, then by current US laws it's illegal to 'preach' it in public schools and college.
P.S. As a matter of curiosity can anyone explain to me the difference between an intangible lifeforce and a Deity that's 'everywhere and nowhere?"
