Well ofc its not as organized as Judaism, Christianity or Islam, atheism is a religious worldview. As atheist are saying as a fact that there is no god/gods, where the other religous people says as a fact that there is a god or gods that exists.
Atheism is a religious worldview because it claims to know something fundamental about reality that hasn’t been or can’t really be scientifically proven. Like the other religous people, atheists operate out of a foundational faith or belief that shapes their perceiving, thinking, and living in the world. (but maybe not as an extent as the other religions)
But its not like atheism, judaism, christianity and/or islam are a kind of blind faith since it has been developed thrue the years from human experienced evidence that supports their worldview. For example neither have proved whether life has a meaning, Christians, jews and muslims believe life has a meaning because of their primary belief in a good creator/god who guarantees life’s intrinsic meaning. And atheists primary belief that god doesn't exist means that the universe just accidently emerged, with no meaning what so ever, and its up to us humans to give life its meaning.
Thats what so puzzling with these brilliant atheists invites us to think like that just because we cant observe god/gods through a microscope or a telescope, and therefore other kinds of faiths is silly and dangerous. They do not take into account that the normaly working scientific method simply isn't geared to make definitive metaphysical pronouncements. In their attempt to reach the truth, they have swapped their own version of scientific dogma for religious dogma.
Our culture today has largely exchanged older, pre-modern religious beliefs as assumptions about the world for modern atheistic assumptions. Because of the industrial, scientific, and technological revolutions of the past centuries, life in the Western world today leaves little room for questions of god/gods.
This has resulted in a generally atheistic culture and worldview rather than the religous culture and worldview of Christendom, judaism and islam. Many people have migrated from religious faith and church life to agnosticism, atheism, and secularism. They are the religious “nones” on surveys, or those who call themselves “spiritual but not religious.” Young people today live in a world where it is hard to believe in God. Their grandparents lived in a world where it was hard not to believe in God. And Western secular governments tend to default to the atheistic worldview in an effort to be inclusive.
Both theism and atheism, therefore, operate out of a primary and foundational belief or faith that results in a particular worldview. Both attempt to offer a comprehensive account of reality. If the goal is, as someone said, “living with the grain of the universe,” then you’ll live according to how you discern the grain from either your theistic or atheistic starting point.
Did you know that the earliest Christians were derided as atheists? It was because Christians didn’t worship the Greek and Roman gods or the Roman emperor as divine, refusing to give their allegiance to anyone or anything other than Jesus Christ and refusing to conform their lives to the pattern of their idolatrous and pagan neighbors.
Christians today would benefit from exploring afresh how the Lord over all calls us not to be conformed to the religious patterns of this atheistic world. What, like atheists, do Christians not believe? (exept the creation of the universe, but its kinda doubtfull eitherway, just think about it)
