This post is a spot for our Kiva team to chat/debate (if anyone is up for it).
My initial thoughts; it heavily depends on how religion is defined. I won't venture to define religion.
I think atheists can form a religion, such as, Humanism. Not all atheists are Humanists. Many Buddhists are atheists. Is Buddhism a religion? I think so but it is also a philosophy. The teachings of the Buddha can be useful to people in the cross cultural way that the teachings of the Ancient Greek Philosophers are.
How is atheism different from agnosticism? Is Agnosticism a religion?
