By quasi-definition lets for argument sake call them adeistic, there are, Jainism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism and Wicca, depending on your slant, there must be more, maybe Scientology.

To be honest I did not know what Adeistic meant and all the definitions have described it as Weak Atheism, if that is true then all the Religions you have mentioned are Atheist Religions, should you not be posting on the other side or is it me that has got the side's wrong?

Side: False

I'm just using it as an opposing option to deism, that is, without a deity.

if that is true then all the Religions you have mentioned are Atheist Religions

I'm just trying to form a distinction, personally I believe that atheism is too lose a term especially as it's becoming more popular, note though that this is my opinion and you are actually right.

should you not be posting on the other side or is it me that has got the side's wrong?

To be honest, it's for argument's sake I'm making a distinction, you are totally right to be on the other side.

Umm.. of course! Atheism, true atheism, is when you don't believe in any God or follow a religion. if you do sort of have a religion, but no particular one, that's called being an agnostic!

An Atheist is a non belief in God's, an agnostic is someone who does not know if God's exist or not they dont have the blind faith of say a Christian or Muslim but they have not dismissed the idea that a God exist's completely. Neither one is a total rejection of religion (but as I said in another post this is going to be different from person to person)

Atheism is lack of belief, and religion is believing in a being greater and superior than yourself, so there is no "Atheistic Religion".

Side: True

I do agree that there is no such thing as an atheistic religion,because religion is when you have some cultural beliefs, you have your own world-view, you give a meaning to life,to every single action. You also give a meaning to the origin of life and you believe in the existence of God, you believe that the universe was not created by itself. But atheism is the opposite of religion. Of course, atheists have their own world-view, but it's totally different. It's not about God, not about believing in this power. Atheists do not believe at all. So in my opinion, it shouldn't be called a religion. I was shocked to know that atheists go to the church for non-believers and talk about that God is a fake. It's not a religion, it's just a propaganda of atheism. And it's really becoming popular.

I was going to go with true on this one but then thought about Paganism as I had met some Pagans who also claimed to be Atheist's because they did not believe the Pagan Gods to be true but metaphors but this could apply to any religion and is tenuous at best. This got me thinking though and Buddhism can be an Athesist Religion some Buddhists believe in supernatural beings that could be described as Gods but there are others that dismiss these beliefs and as Buddhism does not require any belief in Gods I think you could be an Atheist Buddhist

Isn't atheism just a view when you do not believe in any God, whether it is Buddha or not?Buddhists believe in supernatural beings, as you say, they believe in energy in human's body. They concentrate on themselfes, and I khow there are some Buddhists who do not even talk about God. They just have another view on it. They believe in Buddha. But it's not about atheism, when you totally do not believe in anything,except that God doesn't exist. Anyway, I would not call it a religion of atheists,because in the end they all find the God through meditations and this kind of stuff.

I wont pretend to be an expert but there are some Buddhist's who believe in the Supernatural being's and revere Buddha as Godlike, but the other type of Buddhist's dont believe in the Supernatural side of things and their belief is that enlightenment comes from within and that man can only find true enlightenment within himself, as far as I know the "original" Buddha (Buddha just means enlightend one and there have been many throughout history as well as mythical ones) Siddhartha Gotama was more like the second type and this is the type of Buddhist (because they are not Theist's) that Atheist's could be, as far as I know Atheism is just a non belief in Gods not a total rejection of religion (although this view is going to differ from person to person).

Scientology is not a 'religion,' as it holds no worship services, among a lot of other reasons that do not fit the definition of religion. It certainly is not Christian.

Side: False
1 point

They just built a Church of Scientology near my house. And they hold worship services. Well, maybe they're not worshipping, but they have some sort of service that everybody's going inside for. Maybe they're slaughtering a goat. I don't know.

But they all go in there together. And they come out with that smug arrogant smile.

Side: True

An atheist can attempt to answer the same metaphysical questions about the meaning of life, the origin of the universe and morality that theistic religion does. If the hypothetical atheists world view or system of values were to grow enough in significance and its followers truly believed that adopting the system would, to some extent objectively, be the best way attain long term personal happiness and the only way to a good life, there would be, in my view, nothing that could distinguish it from a theistic religion.

Shintoism

Buddhism

Raelianism

Must I go on? Apparently because the requirement is fifty characters, hopefully this is enough.

Atheism is its own religion, as are a lot of other things.(Philippians 3:19; Romans 16:18)

If a person puts any opinion before God's opinion as expressed in the Bible, that is that person's 'god.'

Evolutionists put their own beliefs, which also require 'faith' in unproven conclusions, ahead of God's word, thus evolution is its own 'religion' with its adherents 'worshiping' it in place of God.

In the case of atheists, their own opinion that there is no god is more important than anything, hence, their 'god' is themselves.

Whatever one chooses to believe, if it goes against God's stated word, then that is the person's 'god.' In effect, these people worship themselves over God.

Atheism is its own religion.

It's just semantics I think everybody knows what we mean. I guess it's easier to just say "religion" rather than- "belief system" or whatever. It's just a matter of getting butt hurt.

It's like squares and rectangles. A religion is a belief but a belief is not necessarily a religion. But an atheist is a square and a agnostic is a triangle and a baptist is a trapezoid at the end of the day who gives an ish?

Side: False

There are some atheists who would like to see their way of life recognized as a religion.

Side: False
