Is NonTheism a Religion?

The question raises some interesting discussion. . .and a tad bit of ignorance about non-believing and choosing “Other” or “None”. . .

Is Atheism a Religion? (NYT)

My published comment:

“Each of these voices is important; we need more of this refreshing openness. And I’m reminded of one reason I prefer Freethinker to Atheist. Who wants to be defined or identified as a negative, always against something or someone? As for Ms. Tickle’s view of wonder and mystery–those of us who find Nature as greater than any God humans could ever invent, delight in the endless beauty and creativity and wonder of the Cosmos. Viva Muir, Burroughs, Sagan and other naturalistic thinkers.”
