Atheism is not a religion in the sense that Christianity, Islam, and, Judaism are. Atheism is not generally perceived as offering a complete guideline for living as do most religions.
Atheism is confined to one factor: the existence or non-existence of a deity.
Atheism can involve the positive assertion that there is no deity. This is sometimes referred to as "strong Atheism." It is the most common dictionary definition for the term "Atheist."
Atheism can be the absence of a belief that there is a deity. This is the belief promoted by the American Atheists group and many individual Atheists.
An agnostic thinks it impossible to know the truth in matters such as God and the future life with which Christianity and other religions are concerned. Or, if not impossible, at least impossible at the present time.
Are agnostics atheists?
No. An atheist, like a Christian, holds that we can know whether or not there is a God.

Oook .... and why exactly do you think we came from an alien race? Where'd you get that idea from? Scientology? Star Trek? Can't possibly be something from real life ...

Now obviously, atleast to me it is, there's something beyond your "gut" that's influencing your belief that aliens influenced our ancestors. I know there's a ton of people out their who claim man couldn't have done this or that and that our ancestors were just too stupid or didn't have our super duper advanced technology so HMMPF!
Yea, those are what we generally label as the "crazy" people. They can be quiet entertaining these folks. They'll come up with some wild speculation based upon thin air and try to pass it off as a new discovery that proves they possibly lack a brain stem.
If you personally have no explanations, then why do you personally believe such a thing? There's no evidence that would even lead you to conclude such an idea. Unless of course you wanna stick with the pretty light's in the sky scenario and pawn it off to unseen super duper light years ahead of us advanced aliens who for the past 7,000 years of human civilization just decided to not make any form of contact whatsoever. Or we could claim contact was made only with primitive man and they taught primitive man primitive techniques, never bothered to educate them to any worthwhile degree.
Yes people, man was too stupid to figure out how to dig dirt or put a leaf over his head.
I know I know ... truth sucks pineapples big time.
