If atheism is a religion…

Just saw this on Facebook and I had to post it here.

The image makes the point effectively and concisely. I have been accused of being “religious” in my atheism too many times. I think it’s easier for a theist to assume that not believing is somehow the same as believing, but it isn’t. It’s never about believing that there isn’t a God. One should start with the null hypothesis, and assume nothing. Religion’s starting point is the implicit assumption that a god exists, then misunderstanding anyone who does not accept your bullshit.

No time to write anything significant today… I must go pick up my son in a few minutes… but I had to share the above image.
