Definitions

Christianity~the religion derived from Jesus Christ, based on the Bible as sacred scripture, and professed by Eastern, Roman Catholic, and Protestant bodies

Pagan~  a follower of a polytheistic religion (as in ancient Rome)

Judaism ~  a religion developed among the ancient Hebrews and characterized by belief in one transcendent God who has revealed himself to Abraham, Moses, and the Hebrew prophets and by a religious life in accordance with Scriptures and rabbinic traditions.

Islam~  the religious faith of Muslims including belief in Allah as the sole deity and in Muhammad as his prophet

Atheism~   a disbelief in the existence of deity

Those are all out Websters.

The reason I did this is I’m really tired of how Atheism is defined by people. People have made assumptions about what Atheism is and means. It isn’t a religion, no where in that definition does it talk about anything beyond  lack of a belief in a deity. It doesn’t define that people who are Atheist have no spiritual side, or that they lack belief in the supernatural. Atheism has a broad spectrum of people in it, with plenty of diverse beliefs. The only thing  uniform about them is the disbelief in a higher power
