I wouldn't say it's a 'religion', at least in the traditional sense.

It is however, a cult just like any other. This cult is motivated... motivated, defined in the sense that it is 'given life' through its sermons defining the alleged 'nothingness' that its followers (atheists) believe is the centerpiece of all other traditional religions, and the difference that is a belief system that is 'atheism', the belief in 'somethingness' however defined.

The cultishness comes into 'it' when atheists get all pissy and attempt to defend (it) and differentiate that it is not an alternative belief system to other 'religions', when in fact it is.
That, in my opinion is the definition of a cult.

I don't pray, they do. I don't have a god, they do. i don't adhere to a certain belief system, they do, and I don't go to church, they do. I don't congregate with others of atheism, as they congregate. The argument that atheism is a religion is stupid and flawed. Just a way to make the religious feel 'sane'.

They carry on and on with this ideologically correct bullshit, and it seriously gets absolutely nowhere. It makes them look even more silly. Some people will come up with the most ridiculous arguments to make the case, but it always sounds utterly fucking retarded with each and every attempt.

A cult? I'm in a cult because I don't believe in god? It's fucking senseless, irrational and the claim has no definitive foundation. It's a nice thing to tell themselves, and nothing more.

That same thing could be said of all beliefs. If you're a fisherman, then you're in a fishing cult. It's motivated, they congregate on boats regularly, giving life to each moment. They catch a fish and then proceed to go through the typical 'ritual' of cleaning it. lol

the belief in 'somethingness'? What is this somethingness'? And if we define a cult by the motivation to simply 'debate' against a belief system, then I guess that could literally apply to absolutely any debate we have ever discussed.

So getting pissy and arguing against an ideology is the definition of a cult? What dictionary are you reading my friend? By that logic, if I obsessively oppose the idea that Iran should obtain a nuclear weapon (and I do), does that mean I'm a part of some elaborate anti-nuclear Iran cult lol?

None of it makes a lick of sense when people try and explain why believing in no god, is a religion or cult.bjust another example of religiously motivated people trying to impose yet another ideology on the 'evil unbeliever'.
