Atheism, in my POV, the best "religion" out there. The belief in SCIENCE, and NO GODS.

I'll waive, I don't wanna troll to ruin this.

My opponent has made a very great argument.
My responses below
   
(nothing)
EXACTLY!!!! There's nothing wrong with Atheism, thanks for the AWESOME concession.
(nothing)
My opponent also says there's nothing good about atheism, well in fact THAT'S WRONG. Do you have to go worship? No. Do you have to spend your time studying a holy book? No... You don't even need an official to certify you being an atheist. Convenience, convenience, convenience...
(nothing)
Thank you too for the debate...

Sorry for missing an argument, I didn't use my computer over the weekend and forgot about my debates. 


Atheism is definitely a very good religion. But is it the best? 
Well, the parameters of the debate require that I answer no. 

However, I could not represent any major religions in my arguments, as they have all done something that makes people disapprove of their values. Christians and Catholics have impeded science and development. Jewish require learning the ancient language of Hebrew. Islamic have bad radicals, etc.

But those religions aren't the only ones in the world. I believe that a good religion, even better than atheism, could be a small, HARMLESS cult.

If this cult had these things, it would be better to follow than atheism.

1.) Teaches science
2.) Doesn't charge money besides donations to charity
3.) Doesn't impede change and accepts all people.
4.) Has a strong following of smart people who follow intentionally, and not because of empty promises.
5.) Teaches and changes to the modern times.
6.) Upholds the law, and teaches other to uphold the law.
7.) Makes other people better people, and punishes those who impede other's enjoyment of life with punishments within the parameters of the law.
8.) Doesn't praise gods, instead praises beauty (In the earth, in people, etc.) and good deeds. 

If this religion was taught, I would join it, because it can't cloud judgement and allows people to better themselves for the world to be better. It doesn't speak lies of gods but instead keeps everything modern and true. The "Holy book" would be edited and changed similar to the constitution as needed, and it would co-operate with the US government to preform necessary punishments in a legal way, as understood by the country's law.

Thank you for conceding

I never said it was the best, I said if it was good or bad. I just said I thought it was the best. Please don't get sidetracked.
But those religions aren't the only ones in the world. I believe that a good religion, even better than atheism, could be a small, HARMLESS cult. 
But does this cult exist? No! It doesn't even prove that atheism is bad.

Atheism, in my POV, the best "religion" out there. 
Sure you didn’t say it, dude. 

The end goal of the debate would logically be to prove atheism is the best religion, as you didn’t specify anything beyond the rules and the title of the debate. One would logically assume atheism being the best religion is the thing we are arguing about. I demonstrated my logical argument against this by saying it is not the best religion, and then my opponent said I got sidetracked.

the cult I argued very likely does exist, as there are 7.5 billion people in the world and you only not need a couple to make a cult, 

so, my opponent arguing that atheism is a good religion causes a very one-sided debate that people couldn’t possibly argue against, since it is matter of opinion.
