Region :- a specific fundamental set of beliefs and practices generally agreed upon by a number of persons or sects AND/OR the body of persons adhering to a particular set of beliefs and practices

So taking the definition, do athiests believe that there is not a god/mohammed etc? Yes. Is there a bunch of athiests who believe this? Yes. Thereby Athiesm is a religion by definition.

Do some people believe that bacon tastes good? Yes. Do a bunch of people believe this? Yes. Thereby people who love bacon can be defined as a religion.

I know that traditionally athiesm refers to a lack of religion/beliefs but by definition it's a belief in "nothing" I suppose you could phrase it. And that belief can be defined as a religion.

Religion doesn't automatically mean a belief in some higher power/god or whatever you want to call it. You can be religious about collecting stamps if thats what floats your boat.

OK I get what you are saying. So what are the practices of pastafarianism? What started out as really a joke is now considered a religion.

Edit : Also, if someone says that they are a non-practising catholic, does that mean they are not religious? Why then do they represent themselves with the catholic church?

Perfect. Start a strawman argument, and see how it goes.

Do you have an original thought?
