Wanted to have a little bit more fun. We haven't had a good chew toy in a while. No pun intended with my username.

But it would be dirty, old and smelly chew toy. So better to dispose of it, lest it poison somebody.

True I suppose.

Atheism can turn into a religion because there are illogical atheists who champion their views in a way that emulate the worst traits of Fundies. The same with Communism, it's not about the concept but the weaknesses of the individual.,

Logic was right!

Bunch of cowards!

He/she asked what we believed not what we know.

I believe that matter was created by the prime movers, the uncaused causers... The Universe-creating pixies.
... As proved by the Kalam Cosmological Argument.

Lack of belief can turn into belief? Why don't go all the way and say that ateism is religion?

As for Communism - so fault is not in concept but in humans? Say yes to "socialism with human face"? I think it's concept at fault - utopia is after all unachievable and those who worked for supposed greater good brought the world greatest misery.

A lack of belief of God can turn into a belief into another based on the actions of the individual. Calling atheism a religion would be erroneous because most atheists don't care enough of their lack of belief to make actions that emulate what I have seen from the religious. But there will always be those whose obsession with their atheism causes it to be become religious; I even recall that some American atheists created their own church in which to congregate.

Socialism has brought great good to this world.

I doubt it. Atheism is negation and it's shouldn't - and I think probably isn't - even be important, like not collecting stamps is not important. And how obsession with atheism looks like? I think there is no such thing - only theists seeking to denigrate atheists by pointing supposed fundamentalists amongst them.

As for church I've never looked into such idea but I think place for meeting like minded wouldn't be something analogous to real churches. Having said that I think idea of atheist church seems absurdly.

You were writing about Communism and Communism isn't Socialism, so whether it has brought good to the world or not is irrelevant.
