    Abdel, I would be cautious calling atheism a religion. Religiosity requires belief in the existence of a supernatural force or entity. Most atheists are naturalists, and reject supernaturalism as non-existent and from a logical approach non-sensical. As many atheists have consciously rejected the religions they were raised with, the definition of atheism as a religion could be seen by some as not only incorrect, but even offensive. Certainly, most philosophies within atheism require a certain minimal degree of belief within the bounds of epistemology (eg. the continuity of the laws of nature) but as no supernatural elements are involved, these belief systems are not technically religions.
