Could you give an example of a religion without dogma ?

Platonism, buddhism branches, taoism, neoplatonism, the individual religion of all mystics, and ... the theology of numbers.

In other words, what all the rest of the world calls "philosophy".

It can be done with the scientific modest attitude and respect for the plausible facts, but then the world call it science. "philosophy" has different meaning from university to university.

So does theology - and none of them agree with your meaning. How many people do you think there are on this list with a PhD in theology or a Doctor of Divinity degree? How many with a PhD in physics?

I use it for those who defend the truth of some theories, which is something we don't do in science, be it in theology or botanic.


Atheism is not a religion, just as a vacant lot is not a type of
building,

That's agnosticism. With atheism, the lot is not vacant. (confusion between 
~[]p and []~p).

What do you think is on the lot?
