All world views require faith.

Can it then be fairly stated that everyone is, at least in the very basic definition, religious?
No everyone is not religious.

Faith doesn't make someone religious. The fact that someone may utilize faith in their worldview doesn't indicate that they are religious.

Being that you already made it clear that the only way to know the difference between right and wrong is to adopt your world view, what good would it do for me to try and have a discussion with you?

Your dogmatic insistence on the superiority of your view means that you get to go around and slam everyone else without ever stopping to consider whether or not a change of view on your part might possibly be in order.

Slam?.....What slam are you talking about? have you ever considered that you may be wrong?...Those who do not believe in a deity are NOT religious.

Your beliefs are fallacious. You formed a conclusion about the topic before you started the thread then reject all of the evidence that contradict your beliefs and assume that someone is attacking you when they give objective information that disproves your beliefs. The fact is though that people who don't believe in god aren't religious.
