Is "Belief in a Supreme Being" an Actual Rule by Now? in Issues & Politics Posted July 7, 2013 Earlier I asked about how an atheist can have religious beliefs since religion implies the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power. Really? That would be news to a whole bunch of Buddhist (and a bunch of people of quite a few other faiths). Though I guess you could be one of those people that don't believe Buddhism is a real religion. Buddha understood there were/are many gods. He just didn't believe thwere was/is a creator god. Anyway, what does an atheist believe in? Anything?
