This is so spot on. Thanks Bill.
On Friday’s episode of Real Time, Maher discusses the tendency for opponents of atheism to label any belief system (or lack of a belief system) as a religion, clearly trying to create some equivalency between what they believe and what atheists don’t. To be clear, belief in climate change, for instance, is NOT a religion. Likewise, atheism is NOT a religion – but watch the clip because Maher explains it better than I can. By the way, the piece is worth it just for the graphic of Hitchens’ face on a tree stump. If I didn’t see it, I never wood have believed it (ok, admittedly a bad pun).
