Atheism is NOT a replacement religion

When theists ask you what atheism has to offer, it sounds as if they want atheism to fill in the blanks that would be left behind if religion weren't true.

But atheism is not just another belief system with dogma and a community; whether or not atheism lacks the extraneous trappings of religion should not matter to whether or not one casts off religion. Only the existence--or lack thereof--of god has anything to do with whether or not one should be an atheist.
