Atheist religion is an anti-atheism troll phrase, most commonly seen in the form of a statement which equates to the claim that atheism is a religion.

The phrase itself is an oxymoron in that religion generally presupposes the existence of one or more gods, while atheism (by definition) is the belief (provisional or otherwise) that gods do not exist.

Any phrase which is definitionally oxymoronic becomes a troll phrase when used with apparent sincerity.

Quick Rebuttal

  • Atheism is a religion in the same sense that health is a medical condition.
