Some people are simply wrong, too.<quoted text>
Everyone has their own understanding! hehehehehe
Sikhism denied religion, but it too is called a religion now, that's how things are in this world, people assume and put name tags on you.
Labels should be used. We should either agree with the definitions, or pretend to in order to facilitate conversation. Labels don't change what things are, they allow us to talk about them without describing them in full detail when we want to invoke them in conversation.
What Christians like to do, is say that atheism is a religion, because they subconsciously realize that it is an insult. They are saying, "Atheism is every bit as irrational as religion." We are saying, "Show us a religious atheist." "Show us the belief system." "Describe this mythical belief system you allude to daily without any supporting evidence." If atheism was a belief system or a religion, they would be able to produce some support for the claim that it is. I have not seen it. I would ask, "Define religion, then show me where atheism fits."
It's frustrating and ironic at the same time. I don't have a belief system. I have a world view created by the methodology of rational skepticism. It hasn't got a name. It's just my world view. They'd probably rather it had a name so they could attack it. It's hard to effectively assault not believing in something.
