Atheism Is Not a Religion III

If you didn't catch Bill Maher's show Real Time on Friday night (February 3, 2012), at the end of his "new rules" segment he had a wonderful "new rule":  "Idiots must stop claiming that atheism is a religion".  Here is the video:

Perhaps the most insightful part of the video occurs at the 1:22 mark where Bill says:

"Now, it's a dodge, of course, straight out of the grand intellectual tradition of 'I know you are, but what am I?'"

Because it reveals what is almost always true of religious arguments:  They are dishonest attempts to dress up reasoning that would be more at home on a kindergarten playground.
