Actually that depends on the definition of religion.

If you understand it as believing on something through an act
of faith then Atheism is, as well, a religion. 

I am an atheist, or I want to think that. And most of the
times when I am into a discussion about religion people keep
saying that it's easier to "believe in nothing". Well, on the
contrary, it's quite hard to believe that there is no such
thing as a superior being. That's an act of faith, right?

Though I wouldn't mind acting like a Jedi Knight sometimes...
