WHAT IS ATHEISM
Atheism is not a belief system nor is it a religion. While there are some religions that are atheistic (certain sects of Buddhism, for example), that does not mean that atheism is a religion. Two commonly used retorts to the nonsense that atheism is a religion are: 1) If atheism is a religion, then bald is a hair color, and 2) If atheism is a religion, then health is a disease. A new one introduced in 2012 by Bill Maher is, "If atheism is a religion, then abstinence is a sexual position."
MY RESPONSE: A hairless head is a head just as a hairy head is a head.
Abstinence is not a sexual position but still a POSITION just as atheism is a BELIEF.
It can also be said that religion is health, hence atheism is LACK of health!
