**Please don't -- recalls to mind an earlier debate: is atheism a 
religion?? Why are we constantly grouping ourselves to justify beliefs 
-- do numbers (of adherents/members) lend credence/authority?? Must a 
philosophy be validated or rationalized by the quantity of its devotees??



A.A. Good point.  Personally, I couldn't care less if I were the only atheist 
on the planet, I would still be one.  Principles are something we believe in 
regardless of what others believe.  Looking for gurus means we don't know what 
we believe, only what others believe.
