LIKE WHAT? There is exactly one aspect of atheism--disbelief in god. Nothing else. It is the opposite of a religion.
We've been through this before. Atheism is based on the central tenet of disbelief in god (which you state here clearly), which is a statement on the cause, nature, and purpose of the universe (specifically that god has nothing to do with it). That makes it a religion by itself. Further, that central tenet is a religious belief, which suggests those who agree upon it are part of a common religion.
There is no such thing as "the opposite of religion". We've been over that already as well.
Atheism is a group of people who share a common religious belief - that's called a religion. Just because their agenda is "anti-religion" doesn't make it any less of a religion itself. You can claim it all you want but it doesn't make it so.
Like I said before, if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it must be a duck that claims it isn't a duck because it would rather be some kind of super duck that is above the rules normally applied to ducks.
Sorry - it doesn't work that way. A duck is a duck no matter what it says it is, and atheism is a religion because it has the necessary attributes to be considered a religion.
This will be the last time I try to educate you on what a religion is. If you can't get it, then you are either far less intelligent than I thought or you are in denial. Still, that denial doesn't change the fact that atheism is a religion.
Having a belief that is related to religion is not the same as being in a religion.
This is where you keep missing things.
If you have religious beliefs, you have a religion. It doesn't have to exactly match up with any organized religion or even with anyone else on the planet. Your religious beliefs are your own. You can determine what religion most lines up with your beliefs, whether or not you attend their events, are an "official member" or "belong to" them or anything of the sort. None of those things are necessary.
You don't have to "be in" a religion to be religious. Again, this is a simple concept that you should get by now unless you are far less intelligent than I think you are or you are simply in denial about it because it fits your agenda.
Atheism is simply a word for the non-belief in god.
So there are no such thing as atheists, or people with a common religious belief?
If atheism represents a group of people with a common religious belief, then its a religion. So according to you, there is no group of people who have no belief in god, so there is no such thing as atheism.
It's just a word without any belief whatsoever according to this. Since no one believes in atheism, then I guess it's dead, and this topic is moot.
Individual atheists can have whatever beliefs they want (assuming that non-belief in god is one of them).
Individual believers in ANY religion can have whatever beliefs they want, assuming that some of those beliefs line up with the central tenets of that particular religion.
You should be seeing the common thread here between atheism and any other religion. If you aren't, once again, you either are less intelligent than I think or you are in purposeful denial.
Atheism is defined ONLY by the non-belief in god. There are no other characteristics or concepts of atheism.
And as I've explained, there don't need to be other characteristics for atheism to be a religion. It needs only to be a central belief about the cause, nature, or purpose of the universe shared by a common group of people, and it is certainly that by your own admission.
I could go all day with this, but it's clear you are either in severe denial (convenient for your agenda and that of atheism itself) or you simply can't grasp the simple concepts that make atheism a religion. In either case there is no point in going on and repeating things you can't seem to get for one reason or another.
Unless you've got something new, you can keep believing atheism isn't a religion for all I care. Don't try to learn anything new or accept the truth. Your loss.
Merry Christmas to all.
Also, I'm still wondering when anyone is going to give a concrete example of atheists getting together as a group and actually doing something to make the world a better place or help their communities. Most religions have some people who do this, but all we hear about in the news is atheists causing problems for others, such as by complaining about religious symbols and artifacts on government property. This leads me to believe atheists are problem causers while others are problem solvers. So let's see an example of atheists doing good, if there is one.
