Actually there is a group with the like of P.Z Meyers, which actually say that atheism is a more than a "lack of belief" in God, its a movement, a philosophy and a way to live life. It should have communities, a group mentality and something which should bond these. And fortunately for him under the american religious law atheism is actually covered and defended the same as other religions. So there is a group of people out there which take atheism more than a lack of belief. And then there are people who don't think atheism is anything but a lack of belief. That trying to group atheists is like trying to make a herd of cats, its not possible.
It would be a blessing if they missed the cairns and got lost on the way back. Or if
the Thing on the ice got them tonight.

I could only turn and stare in horror at the chief surgeon.

And with that we went below to the flame-flickering Darkness of the lower deck
and to a cold almost the equal of the Dante-esque Ninth Circle Arctic Night
without.

sorry I brought it up, the whole "Atheism is a religion / takes more faith to be" etc discussion is very tiresome, and not one I care to get into.

But thanks for your thoughts.

It is Tiresome true. I think its just semantics and hardly goes deeper to the core of issues.

What do you think is the core of this issues, or these issues?

To me, it seems something that could be thought of or believed only by someone who thinks that "god" is the central issue or figure in the universe.

That would, from that perspective make atheism the flip side of god-belief, and of equal power and significance..? Hence the idea that EVERYONE believes in 'Something".

I dont see belief, or god, as any kind of core issue at all.

No, as far as I think, the core issue are why someone believes or doesn't believe in something. That is usually more interesting.
