When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men living together in society, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it. -- Frédéric Bastiat
How the Annual Atheist Convention Proves that Atheism is a Religion or at the VERY LEAST Resembles a Religion
Well, I guess that pretty much answers the question posited in the title of your previous post, doesn't it, Larry? Not only do atheists own reason, they (or should I say we?) own it by default.
At first I thought it was a Poe.... I'm sure that I don't have to point out, that while all of the things mentioned in that post are shared by atheism and religion, they are also shared by a great many other group activitities. Also the fact that none of those things are what defines a religion.Bats have five phalanges, fur, ears, warm blood and a spinal cord. Why, that description fits a bear as well! Who would have thought that bats where bearsthis whole time?!
Who would have thought that bats where bearsthis whole time?!They are the same kind, dontcha know.
They wish to critiicize atheism but in doing so score an own goal.
"Atheism is a religion." With all the incorrect statements to chose from, at least they could pick an original one for a post topic.
