Atheism is not a belief system nor is it a religion. While there are some religions that are atheistic (certain sects of Buddhism, for example), that does not mean that atheism is a religion. ... The only common thread that ties all atheists together is a lack of belief in gods and supernatural beings.

A religion is where people have the same beliefs in gods or believe in the same rules. atheism doesnt have any rules or they dont believe in any type of god.

No dude, atheism is a lack of belief or a disbelief. Non belief is not agnosticism, agnosticism is a position on knowledge, not belief. It's painful how often I have to spell this out.

here are the definitions:

Agnostic; a person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God.
Atheist; a person who disbelieves or lacks belief in the existence of God or gods.
