Religion. All definitions have something to do with a higher power, a spiritual lider, a god, etc.
I am curious. Does he believe that the belief in Santa is also a religion?
You can tell him something like: "I believe you are stupid. Does that mean I have a new religion?" It shouldn't matter whether you believe he is stupid or not; just to see what his response is.
I was getting annoyed just reading this. How can any clear thinking person attempt to water down the definition of religion so much as to make it mean 'A belief in something'?
We already have a word for that, it's called belief! Let alone his atrocious reasoning for the falsity of evolution. Ugh!
Is it that believers in a religion can't for the life of them imagine a person who is NOT part of a religion?
