> I didn't mean to equate Atheism with religion.

I know. What I meant might be summarized by saying that "atheism" should not be capitalized - it's not a "movement," a religion, a political party, any of these things.

For me it is a matter of skepticism (with a pinch of Occam's razor thrown in): I have found no reason to suppose that there are supernatural beings, so I do not include the supernatural in my beliefs or world view. The existence of supernatural forces seems an unlikely explanation for what can be explained by causes that are natural.

> So, if a person is an atheist based on only what they have been told by other athiests, it is the same thing as a person who is a christian based only on what they have been told by other christians.

And as I said, there is no atheist pope.
