It may seem strange to you.
But there is no central thesis that "you must accept" to consider yourself an atheist. It is not a worldview, it has no thesis, it makes no positive claims, it has no doctrines or central books, it does not inform further conclusions.
So that is correct. It is NOT A WORLDVIEW. Thus it does not compare to religion.
There are no "central tenets to support or prove."
So any time you hear in a debate "prove to me that atheism is true, or prove to me why atheism is correct."
That is a misnomer.
