Yes, that is a problem. I was responding to:

the arguments in favor of believing in a Singularity can also be used to argue against the existence of a God.

which I saw as meaning that Singularitarianism might be perceived as associated with atheism. Associating it with atheism would IMO be a good thing, because it's already associated with religion like you said. The question is, does the page as currently written cause people to connect Singularitarianism with religion or atheism?

Not if it causes people to associate Singularitarianism as a "religion-substitute for atheists".
