    This question is driving me crazy.

    Someone I know has made a religion out of Atheism hes a fundementalist. Is this any different to all the other religions?

    It seems that there are a lot of people with OCD. (Obsessive compulsive disorder)
    They are compelled to do certain things for no apparent reason other than to be doing certain things.
    Religion is one of them.
    Most people involved don't really know why they are involved, they just feel compelled to do so.
    I think it makes those people feel a kind of security they crave.

    But to help answer your question, what, exactly, is religion to you?
    Maybe jot a wee note about it so we got the definition straight right at the start.

    Good point. Religion to me is behaving a certain way for unclear reasons.

    Uhm.... Isn't this exactly like the other thread that was just created also "Do we still need religion?"
