Why isn't Transformers fandom a religion?
Transformers is a religion. It requires A LOT of faith, it has a creator God - (Hasbro) - it has prophets - (Simon Furman, Bob Budiansky) - it has a Bible - (IDW's Spotlight Series) - it has a congregation and church - (Botcon) - it has a crusade - ('til all are one) - it has Jiihad - (The Gobots)

Yet another retard who thinks on Atheists have brains. There are plenty of theists who believe in Evolution too, dumbass. In fact, I'd say the majority of theists do. Why? Because it's real, in your face, backed up by tons of evidence. Only you and a few others choose to stick your fingers in your ears and shout hymns or something.
For some, Evolution has a creator god. They believe it's god's doing. Unlike you, dear, they have this ability to believe in a God yet not deny basic scientific facts at the same damn time.

@Papa Bear: Thanks for your effort.

Evolution does not play dice. Also, it's based in simple principles rather than impossible spirit-beings from forever ago.
Prophets who brought ideas rather than political bullshits.
Because we have a book? There's lots of books on evolution! OoS is probably inaccurate and outdated by real standards! ToE has evolved beyond OoS.
No, because we don't worship the idea or the creator, and we're not doing their bidding. We're just showing you the freaking evidence.
It's not a religion because none of your arguments were even remotely valid!

"How is that not Religion?"
Evolution has never tortured and murdered millions of innocent people.
Evolution has never extorted money out of the dim-witted and ignorant, or killed them when they wouldn't pay up.
Evolution, because it is a theory, invites analysis and criticism and does not murder or torture those who engage in that analysis and criticism.
Evolution has never subjugated women.
Evolution has never condoned or sanctioned slavery, genocide, infanticide or torture.
Evolution does not survive on threats.
Evolution does not require tax breaks, tithes or "love offerings".
These are but a few reasons why evolution is not religion.

Fail, atheists don't say they have no religion. A lot of them haven't, but that isn't a defining characteristic of an atheist. Just look at Buddhism.

You know, until the last bit, you actually almost made sense (though you were undeniably wrong). Honestly, "the same arguments of superiority of one God over another. ", they don't believe the god, therefore, no superiority.

Biology is not a religion.

Every single word of that was an outright lie.

Chance is a far reaching word, within it's meaning nearly anything can happen, but as large in scope as it is there's a least one thing we can say it isn't.
It's not a deity. It's what may have happened or might happened, it's not individual anything. You in fact contradicted yourself by claming Chance is a creator God then saying it seeks to erradicate theistic religions.
We must be making some headway with these guys though, usually they claim Darwin is the God. Having wrote the book andall.
Everything else you claim is also incompatable with religion.
