Nice one!

So, the odds look less promising. So one really needs to try to find a way to hedge one's bet.

I liked it up until the point where it says atheism is a belief system.

Atheism doesn't play that game. No

NOT fixed.Consider

So is it a non-belief system?

Or a belief non-system?

Or a non-belief non-system?

Consider

In this context 'belief system' is just identifying a category on a chart for clarity.
At least it wasn't listed as a religion.

Looking at the Universalism column, that explains why I never felt comfortable going to the UU church as a "secular" alternative to church. Still too much spiritual woo woo for my taste, especially here in the Bible Belt, where most of the people there are just socially progressive Christians.

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Atheism is a non-belief in a belief system.

Or at least that's what I believe... Facepalm
