    I think this is a point you'll have to argue for. It's not an axiom. Atheism is no more a religion than "off" is a channel.

    It is a WORLDVIEW (well, an aspect of a worldview), but not a religion. There are no required beliefs or practices. Few atheists are passionate about their non-belief (though there are some).

    So do you think Episcopalians and Catholics have it wrong? Are they going to hell and you aren't? Or do you just not like the flavor of their ice cream?

    Could be they are munching on meat while you can't handle anything but milk. I think that's what milk-drinkers would say--"that meat stuff is just BORING!"

    They are not wrong, but they are not leading an active spiritual life either. My like a religion rather then a relationship with Christ.

    Mary and Martha, bud. I doubt the "active spiritual life" is one size fits all.
