I was going to say white crayons but then I thought that if they were using black paper then I thought crayons are non-toxic, then I thought that water is non-toxic, then I thought water is clear, then I thought.. any way white on white works.

White is the least used Crayon in the box according to Crayola. It's a conspiracy by the paper companies. They're all racist.

That one.
And what's included in that "system" other than the "belief" that there is no god?

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.

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.

That last part's not true.

There is much more evidence for werewolves.
