This is among the few areas where I disagree with Thom—his opinion that atheism is a religion. According to Thom, if a person or a group has a world view, and they try to spread this world view to others, this is, by his definition, all we need to know to name that world view "religion." Well, Thom has a world view, and Thom goes on the radio and TV every day to spread this world view to others. So, is his show is a religion?
I'm sorry, that definition is just plain wrong. Worse, his attitude toward atheists who come on the air to argue with him about it is condescending and smug. It's not attractive at all, in my opinion.
