Not bad.

But I have a belief system.

It is secular humanism.

And it doesn't require belief OR nonbelief in gods of any kind.

Different color roses have different chemistry that absorbs and reflects different wavelengths of light.
That's what color is.
I think you have just re-named colour to chemistry LOL

Isn't a belief something that you think is true? You think that religion is wrong, so you think your opinion is true, so is that not a belief?
But it's not a belief system.

A belief system consists of much more than a single belief.

And most Christians here use the term "belief" disingenuously in an attempt to liken us to them.

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.
This is what wiki says about Sikhism:

Would you say this is accurate?

If not, why not.

You will be scored on your answer.

<quoted text>There is NO argument to be had, there probably is no God. And thats the polite rendition, I like this one better. Due to the complete and utter lack of evidence there simply is no God. Or.........The evidence for God is the same as there is for werewolves.
That last part's not true.

There is much more evidence for werewolves.

Haven't you ever been to the movies?

Colour is chemistry. So is sight.

If a blind person touches a rose bush they may never do it again, depending on where they touch it. But it smells good, right?

He is the most scrollable person I've ever met. I like that in a dumbass.

He is useful though. Last night, when I saw his name, I wrote douche on my shopping list. I needed one.
