I gave up when the religious chappy wanted to equivocate in 1000 words or less about what "faith" REALLY is.

By the way that many people use the word religion, and by their loose definition of what constitutes a religion, then virtually any or all areas of study would be defined as religions.

This is ridiculous, but it doesn't seem to deter them.

When theists claim that "atheism" is a religion, what they really seem to be saying is, "well, you too are religious," with the inference that all religions or all beliefs are of equal weight, credibility or veracity. Pooh to that as an argument.

Let them have their tu quoque fallacy. Afterall, they don't have much.

Not a literal virus. A "thought virus".

God belief is like a thought virus which sets up residence within our minds. It feeds on emotional insecurities, fear of the unknown, fear of death, psychological insecurities and our all encompassing egotistical states. It replicates itself into the minds of our children through the indoctrination and assimilation of culture, and mutates in following generations in order to survive.

A concept which is perpetuated through culture, but acts like a virus as it changes and adapts to the environment in which it finds itself.
