No not at all for something to be a religion you have to faith to believe it. It doesn't take faith to not believe in god like it doesn't take faith not to believe in santa. Some people might say they are atheists because they don't want anyone to ask them to go to church of something, I don't say " Hey every one I don' believe in god!" and I am an atheist.
I can't speak for other atheists, but I don't go preaching around my neighborhood like a door to door salesman. I have no god to sell.
Why do we tell people we don't believe in god? Isn't "because we don't" enough of an answer? Are we supposed to pretend to believe in god in order to be true atheists, or what? I wasn't aware having an opinion on something and not hiding it was the definition of a religion, but thanks for the info. I deduct from your answers that you're a polytheist, then, worshipping at the altar of Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus and creamy blue carpets.
Hmm~~~>polytechnic~~> of, or dealing-with many arts or sciences... sounds like your doing a good job young~blood, after all, knowledge is power... In my opinion i believe atheist tell everybody that they don't believe in god because they are angry lost soles and misery loves company... And they ~~~>the self proclaimed atheist, are verbally compelled to ( tell everybody ) in hopes to find ~~~> any company... Sad but true... hope this helps, and best wishes
I think that there is no such thing as a true atheist. What I find to be interesting though is the top two things on a supposed atheist's list are 1) there is no god. 2) I hate him. You can't hate someone or something you don't think exists.
Because thats there belief if you don't believe in god tell the people who may persuade you to go to church or read the bible its like being burned alive for us. The athiest does not believe in no god theres no super monster in space looking down on us its only us. I laugh at everyone you believes in it. Theres no reason the believe in something that doesn't exsist he doesn't exsist can you touch him taste him feel him see him if you can't its not real
Usually, religion (either what flavour, or lack of religion) doesn't come up that often when I'm just chatting with friends. About the only time I talk about being an atheist is when some obnoxiously smug Christian comes along and tries to tell me what I need in my life. Or what my child should be allowed to learn, or watch, or play, or say, or think.
Why do religious fanatics tell everyone theyre religious? Not every atheist is like that, not every religious person is like that. Some people just like to argue, and that doesnt depend on which religion you are.
