We may be talking semantics here but saying god and religion aren't the same thing is like saying a car and an engine aren't the same thing. You're right but it's an integral part of the larger item, and generally useless without it's framework.
Not really, some of the people in this very thread are pretty religious about their atheism. Then when it really goes to far it becomes fundamentalism, beyond that, fanatacism. None require God. The only ingredient we need to fuck shit up is ourselves.
