However, atheists make such claims so
Atheism can avoid legal imperatives
placed on religions in many countries,
and can avoid some of the ideological
hang-ups people have about ‘religion’. It
also creates a false dichotomy between
science (which they claim must be
naturalistic and secular) and religion.
Atheismª will be defined in the
contemporary western sense: not just
the lack of belief in a god, but the
assertion about the non-existence of any
gods, spirits, or divine or supernatural
beings. Atheists in this sense are
metaphysical naturalists, and as will be
shown, they DO follow a religion.
