Technically ? No
Do some professed atheists become fundamentalists in the "cause"? Yes,. Almost religious indeed.
At that point they can be more clearly defined as anti-theist.
Atheism in its base form is not coherent philosophy or religion, it is simply an observation that no evidence for the (actual) existence of deities
can be shown.
Apply rational thinking and logic to that statement and you have an atheist. Any other outcome requires faith and/or belief.
Yes, incidentally, deities all of them since the beginning. I don't play favorites based on which deity is currently popular.
