No, that is incorrect. Buddhism, for instance, is an atheistic religion.

Then why do Buddhists say "All hail the jewel of the Lotus" when they meditate?

There's no such thing as an atheistic religion.

Do you care to elaborate on why you believe that this is relevant to the discussion at hand?

I provided you with an example a mere 10 minutes ago.

RE: [split] It's Supernatural.
Buddhism is not about either believing or disbelieving in God or gods. Instead, the historical Buddha taught that believing in gods was not useful for those seeking to realize enlightenment. Buddhism does not address god - some sects may but, basic Buddhism based on the Buddha's original teaching, does not.

Yes it is relevant to the discussion at hand, you said Buddhism was atheistic and I said no because they're mantra is "all hail the jewel of the Lotus," which basically is worshiping the Buddha of Compassion as a God.

So basically there are two schools of thought, the traditional Theradevas and the reformed Mahayannas. The teachings of the historical Buddha were embodied in Theradeva, which recognizes Hindu gods as well as that Siddartha was a God in his samsara past. The Mahayannas are diluted by local culture to accept local eg Chinese gods, so they all believe in a God some way or another.

Now that Buddhism has been disproven, what is another example of an "atheistic religion".

Please refer to kim's post above. I think she addressed your argument adequately.

Well, I disproved her to. Now, like I said, what is another "atheistic religion"?
