It can seem pretty dogmatic at times if you ask me

No. It’s only a response to a belief in a god.

I think New Atheism has a religiousity to it. It includes tenants of the religion of Feminism and demands believers be proven wrong and convinced of their wrong-doing.

I'm an atheist and I like to have debates over religion, its just interesting to me.

Also just because you're atheist doesn't mean you're a feminist, yes many feminists are atheists but that's because they're communists. All communists are atheists, but not all atheists are communist. Personally I feel like the Christian morals are good foundations for the free world, I just don't believe in their god.

I'm the same way, although I'm more of an agnostic theist. I'm referring only to "New Atheism" or "Atheism+" as it's known.

No. It is not a belief in the existence of a superhuman controlling power. It is simply the belief that no such power exists.

Is “off” a tv channel? Is “ bald “ a hair color?

Is “ barefoot” a type of shoe?
Is “ unemployed” a job?
Is “ healthy” a disease?

It's the absence of religion

That's agnosticism. Atheism is "I believe there is no God"; agnosticism is "I do not think about, or practice religion at all"

Not really Agnosticism is admission of ignorance. You can be an agnostic atheist (i.e. I don't believe but I can't prove it in any real way) or an agnostic theist (I do believe but there is no way to prove it exists).
The opposite is gnosticism, believing what you believe is proveable.

Atheism is a religion like Off being a TV station.
