I personally believe that atheism is a religion. It has teachers and missionaries and followers. But what do my fellow ATS members think about this.
They are (1) a firm conviction, producing a full acknowledgment of God's revelation or truth, e.g., 2Thess. 2:11-12; (2) a personal surrender to Him, John 1:12; (3) a conduct inspired by such surrender, 2Cor. 5:7. Prominence is given to one or other of these elements according to the context"

It's a faith because it's an unknown. Do you know God exists? KNOW! Do Atheists KNOW God doesn't exist? If you answer yes to either question it's because of faith, because there are NO ways to verify this in this life.
