This program from Creation Magazine LIVE looks at the 7 criteria for determining whether a set of beliefs or disbeliefs can be classified as a religion. The presenters go on then to discuss these criteria in the context of Atheism to determine whether or not Atheism does actually meet the criteria to be called a religion. The discussion compares a number of other religions including Buddhism, Jainism, ancient sun worship, and Christianity.
I thought this was quite an interesting topic of discussion given that Atheism focuses around the premise of non-belief in a god. As mentioned by the presenters, neither Buddhism or Jainism have a belief in a god, yet they are classified as religions, so what makes Atheism different? Or is it actually a religion after all?
