Church, without God
ÂStan Bradley likes Bible stories, admires Martin Luther and uses expressions such as 'heavens, no.'
The Lithopolis man is president of a local congregation and rarely misses a Sunday service. Occasionally, he goes to his wife's church instead.
For these and other reasons, Bradley considers himself religious.Â
He is also an atheist.
ÂLike Bradley, some atheists participate in organized religion for its social and psychological benefits.Â
ÂChurches are great places to find friends, support and youth education, so nonbelievers and believers alike join congregations to fill those needs, he said.
He has spoken to elderly and sick people who can no longer go to church and they say they most miss the feeling of community.
Recent research from Harvard University and the University of Wisconsin backs him up. It found that religious people tend to be happier than nonreligious people, not because of belief but because of the friendships found at church.Â
Âreligious people tend to be happier than nonreligious peopleÂ[I have said this all along, and my posts are still on the board to confirm it. Now you hear it straight from the atheist, lol.]
Your definition of Religion/Faith required belief in something.
Therefore, Atheism can not be a religion by your own definition.
