Already preached the gospel of Gwynnite. Problem being, ya really have to be dead to be taken seriously as a prophet. Wink

Can you explain this religion to me, and where I can find their holy book.

I don't think they have a holy book, per se, but just go with anything written by Gwyneth Paltrow (Gwynnies) and you'll have a sacred text.

You see, HouseofCantor is the Gwynnite prophet.

If only Atheism could be classified as a religion.

It's not even an "ism" just a label really.

RE: Is this almost the perfect religion?
I did once read an article of the perfect religion .. called fictionology and the gist is you make up whatever it is you like. One man has his belief in batman. It was a highlighted fictionology convention.

This article may or may not of been from The Onion.

I don't think that makes atheism a religion. It simply doesn't meet the criteria. There are no doctrines or specific rules or gods or special rituals or practices (including prayer) or anything. Being an atheist is just a default position. It is to not choose any deity. It is to not believe or be convinced of a deity at the moment.

Some atheists like to gather in a church-like setting because they like the sense of community. They enjoyed the gathering and singing in church when they were a Christian and would like to do something similar with like-minded people. So they'll come together, sing secular songs, and listen to someone talk about maybe something inspiring, motivational, or uplifting.

Implying that atheism is a religion is just incorrect.

I was partly joshing, but partly not.

Atheism has meant a variety of different things to different people. Christians were called atheists by their critics. For some their atheism means a lack a belief in God, for others their atheism means a belief that God does not exist. And about 10% of self-identifying atheists surveyed recently by the pew, claim to believe in God. Clearly whatever meaning they associate with the label, doesn't even require not believing in God.

http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/201...-atheists/

Clearly folks here are vying to be ultimate arbiter of the meaning of the word, according to how they understand it, and perhaps they'll have considerable influence on how it will be predominately defined in the future, but who knows.

There is also a considerable deal of conflict, in regards to the meaning of theism and atheism. Theism has had several thousand years to mark it's territory, extending to an extensive amount of forms as to what theism means, pantheism, deism, scholastic theism, etc.... You have folks who see the word God, as implying a belief in a cosmic sky daddy, and therefore declare they lack a belief in God, while subscribing to some form of theistic worldview, just not in name. Akin to those who label themselves atheists, but claim to also believe in God, but in reality are just closeted theists.
