First, what is a Religion?
1. It is a pursuit or interest in which someone ascribes extreme importance.
2. something one believes in and follows devotedly; a point or matter of ethics or conscience
3. an activity that someone is extremely enthusiastic about and does regularly
Based on the above, I think it's safe to say that atheism is indeed a religion.
