Islam is a theistic religion
Buddhism is an atheistic religion

Atheism and theism constantly compete,

I want to prove that under no circumstances can any of them claim superiority if they are distilled from their respective world views

"...spoiling what could have been an interesting debate, it wasn't." That made me lol.

Thank you for voting.

Yes, I will vote on this debate in a couple of days, I promise. As for suggestions, I'll keep that separate from this debate in comments. I'll PM.

You seem to be an expert on these kinds of matters.

Would you like to vote? Maybe even give me some tips on how to win this kind of debate?

Buddhism is a non-theistic Religion. It therefore doesn't require religious faith because it doesn't posit a god's existence. This is a mute point.

COULD YOU NOT HAVE TOLD THAT EARLIER? YOU USE "RELIGIOUS FAITH" AND THEISM INTERCHANGIABLY.

Well then I assume atheism is not religious the same way Buddhism is not religious. This is definately a fallacy

I want to point out that no actual burst of rage happened during my last argument.

Added:
Contender
--> @Benjamin

My bad, I meant to say ,"...Gnostic Athiesm doesn't either..." In the final paragraph

Added:
Contender
--> @Benjamin

Yes, yes I can.

Ok then, but since it is a semantics issue, as you said, can you accept us having a unified definition?

If you don't, your victory will be based on which dictionary one uses.

Can you actually argue against my argument?

Added:
Contender
--> @Benjamin

I'd rather drag this out until I lose than mar my record with a no vote tie in a rated debate

Added:
Contender
--> @Benjamin

The only way I will stop is if you formally concede. Otherwise, I'm always gunning for the win.

Added:
Instigator
--> @Sum1hugme

Can we agree that we both claim "we stop this debate - do not vote" as the answer for the last two rounds?

Well I'm gonna post my round 2 and then it's up to you if you want to keep going or concede.

Added:
Instigator
--> @Sum1hugme

Ok, we end this debate. But how?

(also, we could have a debate in the forums that is not too long, and not about the semantics but "essence" of faith)
