In one way, yes. The diversity of religions, each claiming to be true to the exclusion of all others, really means that religion is not based on fact, so that no religion is true.

Some people of faith think that, when facing death, atheists would no doubt discover religion, although the facts are otherwise. Even if it were true that "There are no atheists in a foxhole" this would only prove that religion is indeed a state of mind. If fear of death is the only reason for religion, then religion is no more than a convenient mental antidote for the fear of death, and does not make religion any more real.

AnswerThere is an old saying, "There are no athiests in a foxhole." That means that once we start facing our own mortality, most of us will acknowledge the presence of a creator. Specific religious beliefs may not be all that significant, but acknowledging the presence of a creator seems universal when people face their own mortality.

ANSWER:

Religion is a set of rules to be followed in order to be right with God. Religion is fear based and results in more fear.

Faith is based upon relationship with God and an unshakable knowledge that you are loved, protected, valued and will never be rejected or abandoned. Faith is love based and results in more love.

Any rules, law or requirement added to the pure and unconditional love God offers us will kill the flow and the joy of that love and faith will be impossible. Faith resides in the heart.

Jefferson felt strongly that there had to be a separation of church and state. Without it there wouldn't be a freedom of religion. The history of the church run state is a long history of abuse.

In the human mind.Answer:Atheism is the natural state of the human mind. Belief in deities and the supernatural is inculcated by society. As a consequence it was not created it simply is. Some people who have taken up religion turn from it and return to their natural state, but this is not creating atheism.

All conditional things are impermanance, including the state of the 'mind'. Mind is the fore-runner of every thought, speech and action. We would be living a aimles and directional-less life if the changing mind is now subdued and religion provide us the avenue, path or platform to live a guided life.
