By definition it isn't. So, it wasn't but now it kind of is. Why?
They try to convert people into their beliefs or lack of. They strongly uphold their beliefs or lack of. They have a superiority complex like all the other extremely religious folk. They want to change the laws to fit their beliefs or their lack of. They donate money to others to help out their cause. They practice their beliefs or their lack of, like forcing themselves not to pray during a crisis to show that even though they didn't pray everything still turned out fine (they only force themselves not to pray out of previous habit of doing so). They always want to argue about religion since they're always right, while everyone else is completely wrong/misguided/fools.
Yeah, sounds like a religion for me.
Man what a load of nonsense.
First, it was a joke. Second, I believe it is fairly true. Again by definition they cannot be a religion but SOME, not all, sure do act like it. but... whatever.
Watch it till 2:18 then some atheist destroys my point, shame there isn't a video without him on it :/
I watched the video. I feel an urge to inform you that my post was mainly a joke. See, most of my closest friends are atheist. However, I personally have found some atheist to be quite pompous and rude, not all of them of course. Again, most of my closest friends are atheist. Still, I have seen atheist act like the same way the negative stereotype of religious person would.
I. Trying to convert people.
II. Superiority Complex. E.G. "I am a better human being because I am aware of the reality of the situation. I find greater meaning and purpose than you." Either sentence can be uttered by a pompous religious person or an atheist.
I also added a few examples I have been exposed to in my life that I found humorous. I am well aware that a majority of atheist can be like Ricky Gervais. I personally am Agnostic. Why? Because, I don't care. Life is too fragile to worry about what's what. At the same time, I can find either party, annoying, rude, and/or pompous.
I have meet rude religious folk, I have meet rude atheist, I have meet pompous religious folk, and I have meet pompous atheist. I repeat, my post was mainly a joke. However, any extreme of either side is annoying to me. I only posted what I posted because it was the opportune moment to share funny experiences I have had with some atheists.
Imma end this post now since I don't want to go into more great detail about everything. ;P
I hope you know I mean no disrespect. (+)
