I find it amusing that you try and disprove my implied definition of religion simply by quoting a book. My post was just a little flame-bait thrown into the mix with the purpose of observing that both athiesm and organized religions share many of the same qualities. The most dominant of these qualities being the unsupported belief in (or against) something.
I really don't care to concern myself with such a debate, especially on a programming website. I hope a few people have found it thought-provoking.
