Interesting post.
Would you agree with my use of set thoery?
Atheism is the "null set" to any set of religions.
Just as null would be contained in any set of integers yet
null is not an integer.

    Atheism is trivially a belief.

    However, atheism doesn't occupy the same special status as the zero element — it's not "at the bottom of" ∀ beliefs. Nor is it really the canvas on which other things are painted, as with a null array.

    BTW, {} ∉ Z. {} ⊂ Z.

      Excellent observation. Very well put.
