    As an atheist I could take into consideration a religious concept or two, if it seemed worthy, but I don't have to.

    Love, kindness, selflessness, for example aren't even religious concepts, even though most religions seem to be their self-appointed majority share holders.

    There's a big difference between the Israelite faith and religion. We don't have anything to do with religion...

    the Israelite faith are a set of tribal laws and commands in regards to a specific family of tribes. It is not a religion, but our faith does include the qualities you listed above as well as many more. However it should not be mistaken for a 'religion' because it is not. It's not an organization or establishment of any sort. Simply a culture belonging to a nation of people that have been divided through slave trades. Period.

    Outside of your disbelief in higher frequencies of celestial beings, specifically one who is above the rest... I agree with a lot of your perceptions of 'religion'. Other than that, I'm good.

    who claimed ownership of these qualities?

    they are human qualities.

    hell, even beasts can show love, kindness and selflessness.

    we are all beastly by nature, after all.

    beasts can show love, yet humans are the only ones who think about love, or are aware of it. to the beast, love, hate, despair, joy are automatism. What makes humans so special is the perceived ability to control these emotions..:hairganik:

    No the fuck there isn't.

    Why don't Christians seem to understand what the word "religion" means? FFS Just because you're more creepy and intimate with your deity doesn't make it any less religious. It's JUST MORE CREEPY.
