I came across this definition of religion whilst debating on an american forum, the full definition is this,
religion is an initial circular argument with other arguments stemming from it.
This definition provided by a Christian appears to me to be utter nonsense, it does not describe religion and is so broad that any circular argument could be a religion. "The red shoes are red" suddenly becomes a religion if I understand it correctly.
Interested in what other people think, is it meaningless rubbish or am I missing a philosophical point.
