It took some time but your "religion" of Zero is starting to make sense
to me but I must take umbrage with the description of atheists as
"Homo Vocare, Empty Man".

There's a definite derogatory implication. How about :-

"Indifferent Man" :-
He who doesn't give a fuck for any God or Religion.

If Zero is a "fair" religion then that's a fair description
for its infidels.

Do me a favour and fill in the Latin for "Indifferent", I can
barely write English as it is.

BTW "Homo sapiens sapiens" is written as such - there's no singular "sapien".
