What I mean by that is instead of worshipping a cosmic being whose existence cannot be proven or even disproven you just merely worship science, technology, the laws of physics, or simply yourselves.

Yes, but I'm not really an atheist what with being God incarnate and all. Scant though it is, there is more evidence that I AM God rather than some fantastical creature in the sky nobody has seen in a fundoshi before. I AM is to be. To be is God. Ergo, I AM God. This is the Gospel of Man. So saith The Word. quod erat deduncetratum

deduncetratum? Consider

Down here in Texas, where the creationists have been battling teaching of evolution in schools tooth and nail for decades, atheism is labelled a religion. And evolution an atheist idea. Creationism is banned in schools because its not science, but religion. So by claiming atheism is religion, they can complain evolution is an aspect of atheism, as it were a "religious dogma". Therefore teaching evolution is schools should also be banned. On grounds it's teaching religion.

Sincere question here: Does it then follow that atheist "churches" or assemblies also enjoy tax-free status in TX?

Dunno about TX, but I know they do at the federal level. Although "enjoy" isn't the right word, FFRF has been fighting against that designation assigned to them by the feds.

I do not know of any atheist churches that exist that could do so. There are of course plenty of 503( C ) atheist organizations that get the usual charitable or educational organization perks. Madelyn Murry O'Hair's American Atheist center in Austin had that. But atheist churches, don't know of any such thing here.

RE: Is Atheism just another religion under guise of "non-religion"?
Evolution has zero doctrine regarding anything to do with a belief in god or lack in belief in god. Evolution discusses how species change over time. That's it. That's all there is to it. You're welcome to try and pull some "atheist teaching" out of that, but there's none to be had. It's neutral. Period. That's some seriously terrible logic.

By that logic we can also conclude that teaching geology is also atheistic as it doesn't include god, or lack of one, and therefore is religious, and geology should not be taught. Lava is now invalid, and no one can learn about lava, rock formations, etc, because it's religious now!

And gravity is also atheistic.

*sigh*

Just wow.
