    It's the other way around. Religion is the most common subset of philosophy among people.

    Religion = A non-materialist philosophy with axioms based on faith and subsequent praxis.

        It's not arbitrary, philosophy as a whole doesn't fit any reasonable definition of religion.

          I agree. Atheism does, this

          Philosophy is secular theology.

          is correct

            Neither does atheism. New atheist might make the cut, but even that is a huge stretch which would make your definition of religion cover a massive amount of human activities.

            Of course it does. It is a worldview which makes ultimate truth claims. When atheists make their autistic spiel about "there are 30 bajilion religions but only yours is true", we have to include atheism as one of the 30 bajilion. When I point this out to them they respond by moving the goalposts, shifting from propositions which have a truth value like "Jesus Christ is God in the flesh" to human behaviors, which don't have a truth value, by saying things like "what rituals do atheists have?" Although there are also some apparently ritualistic behaviors that seem quite common among atheists

            Atheism is the belief that no gods exist. If that qualifies as a religion, I don't see why the belief that, for instance, no two meters long potatoes exist wouldn't qualify as a religion too.

            No such thing. Atheism is a worldview which is identical to Epicureanism.

            People who read philosophy, so not you.

            By definition, yes. But the richard dawkins / daniel dennett following has grown into a set of truth values such as:

            >god does not exist due to "god of the gaps theory"
            >determinism is true; we just havent fleshed out all the data because there is too much to do so
            >humans, having evolved from animals, are animals have therefore have no inherent value
            >science is the only way to explain things, and therefore experts in science should be our guides to life

            These "a-theistic" tenants build up to a religion without a god. Instead they believe that science will solve everything, up to and including human behavior.

            I already said here

            that new atheism might make the cut, but new atheism is an anglo phenomenon that is overrepresented online for obvious reasons.

      No.

      morons, what do you say about places outside of the Hellenic world? That simply had zero conception of philosophy? Dharma literally means truth about reality. Philosophy is just a hellenic system of describing reality no different from any other religion

    Well considering that philosophers as a collective are neither organized nor a religion I'm gonna have to say probably not

    I think philosophy and religion are both tools, but they are different tools. Philosophy is used to try to figure out God, nature, and everything else. Religion is used to conform everyone to be the same.
