ATHEISM IS A RELIGION as deemed by the courts.
John Calvert, a lawyer and intelligent design proponent declared:
The Seventh Judicial Circuit of the Court of Appeals of the United States held that ATHEISM IS A RELIGION. Therefore, it cannot be promoted by a public school. Currently, public schools are often unwittingly promoting atheism through a dogmatic and uncritical teaching of materialistic theories of origins.
There is a general consensus that:
A person who believes in a specific God is a Theist.
A person who actively denies the existence of God is an Atheist.
Note: see Merriam-Webster
: one who believes that there is nodeity
A person who feels that we have no method by which we can conclude whether a deity exists is an Agnostic.
Ã¢ÂÂThe word cult in current popular usage usually refers to a new religious movement or other group whose beliefs or practices are considered abnormal or bizarre. The word originally denoted a system of ritual practices. The word was first used in the early 17th century denoting homage paid to a divinity and derived from the French culte or Latin cultus,Ã¢ÂÂworshipÃ¢ÂÂ, from cult-,Ã¢ÂÂinhabited, cultivated, worshipped,Ã¢ÂÂ from the verb colere,'care, cultivation'.Ã¢ÂÂ~ Wikipedia
Ã¢ÂÂDogma is the official system of belief or doctrine held by a religion, or a particular group or organizationÃ¢ÂÂ~ Wikipedia.
Organizations of atheists ritually denounce the existence of God. They have become an organization, dedicated to the activity of removing all relicÃ¢ÂÂs of Theism from public places. Their dogma is based entirely on their notion or belief that God does not exist. These organizations work tirelessly towards this effort.
It is no longer possible for an individual to simply state they are an atheist, by reason of personal belief, and not be affiliated, by membership or indirect alignment with these organizations.
These organizations have an official system of belief and their doctrine is to end the belief of theism on this planet.
They are exclusive, ritualistic, and have a belief system which generates activity within and beyond the boundaries of the organization. They are a Cult.
Does it ever hurt?
