I'm not really sure what religionists are trying to do with the entire "atheism is a religion" claim.
Are they trying to bring us down to their level or bring themselves up to ours?
I don't think the vectors of that meme - the people posting here, for example - have any known purpose. Just ask them, and they won't have a credible answer. They're just uncritically repeating what they've heard and read as they do with the definition of atheism meme. Likewise with the definition of an atheist meme.

The authors of both memes surely had a purpose in mind. For the "atheism is religion" one, it is most likely to gain parity with secular alternatives to religion in schools and government. If it can be argued that atheism, secularism or evolutionary science are religions, then it can be argued that is discrimination to exclude creationism from textbooks, for example.

Regarding the other meme, they also have no good answer for why so many of them repeat it. Once again, just ask them. Ask them why they insisting that the word "atheist" be used only in reference to people making a positive assertion that gods cannot or do not exist, and that the rest of us call ourselves agnostics, and you don't get a credible answer. They don't know.

I think that the purpose of its authors was twofold:

First, it's to keep the numbers for atheism low. Christians like to claim that America is only 2-4% atheist when it's closer to 20% that say that they have no god beliefs.

Second, they'd rather the other 16-18% of is be known as agnostics to give the impression that we feel uncertainty, as if we're wavering in doubt - exactly how Susie D just defined the word:

"You claim to be agnostic, this makes you a sort of believer; you are not sure what you believe, yet something is there. "

It's like NASCAR fans and enthusiasts saying that people who don't believe NASCAR is a great sport are still NASCAR fans because they don't believe NASCAR is a great sport like NASCAR fans do. It's almost as if they're so wrapped up in NASCAR that they can't fathom the idea that someone wouldn't believe what they believe. So everyone must be fans, even if they are the antithesis of fans. And if you were to ask; Why should I believe NASCAR is a great sport? The reply: "Just look around you, isn't it obvious?"
Exactly. They don't know. They don't have a reason.

Sound reasonable?

Yet you have the NEED to come on here and voice your wrong opinions. And when you know you are losing your battle with Christians, you have to call on the moderator Pomona (aka christainISEVIL) to help you. Funny thing is, he rips up your dogma even more. Every time he is being whipped , he falsely claims every one as being Portapotty.
It's definitely a weakness within your failed agenda.
Maybe you should pray.

Your STRONG NEED to congregate and assemble on forums proves you are a part of a religion, a mentally deaf religion whereby you secretly worship Satan , while denying your failed and defeated god exists.

You're not fooling us at all, you repugnant and hopeless liars.

This is the only rational thing you have ever said.
Isn't such an ironic pity that it's a lie?
Anyone who asserts atheism is a religion is not rational.
You also project many convoluted opinions you believe, based on
zero evidence. How is that rational or intelligent?
No you are a dissenter, here to project your hatred.
If that isn't your goal...you're the complete failure.

... do tell us why when you first started posting here you claimed to be undecided about religion and you really and truly wanted to hear from both sides about their thoughts. Now, just a couple of months later you're a raging religious fundamentalist?
Really - do tell.
I never said I was undecided, thank you. You really should quote people correctly, instead of lying. Go ahead, I dare you to link to me saying that. You can't, cause it isn't there. I said I was having doubts/struggling about/with things. I also stated that I was raised as a Christian. I was and am honest when I say/said I want to/wanted to hear from both sides. As of yet, none of you have convinced me, but your adversaries have convinced me, even more than I was before I started having doubts. A few (very few) of the unbelievers have brought some things to me that have helped me grow and learn. A couple is two. I started here on April 12th. That would be about four and a half months. Btw, I am still listening with an open mind, if you all would only say something that makes even the slightest bit of sense.

Hmm, they bested the quantum logic clock with strontium.

Just as they launched a new standard timekeeper.

This means clocks are 2 generations ahead of the standard.

Just Think,

Go ahead and give it your best shot. I am listening. I want you to make me understand your views. I am sorry for the lying snake/serpent remark. Maybe you aren't lying and are just mistaken, but you said "said the admitted liar and hypocrite." That means you are saying that I admitted to that, which I did not and you said that I said I was undecided. I did not. I said I had doubts/was struggling with my beliefs. If you want to read my posts from when I came here, start on April 12th with Angel, then there will be some posted under Joy. Both of those were unregistered names. After that, I started posting under this name registered only.
