It involves a group of people, based on a belief - which happens to be that God does not exist. Which is what a religion is. Every person in the world belongs to a religion of some sort.

Atheists are not an organized group of people in the way Christianity is. Atheism is not a set of beliefs. It is like theism. All it talks about is one single aspect of your belief system. By this same logic, people who believe in squirrels follow a religion, people who believe in ghosts are part of a different religion, people who eat cake are part of a religion, vegetarianism is a religion, etc.

I find the "If atheism is a religion then having the TV off is a channel/not playing sports is a sport" saying to be very accurate.

Weak atheism does not take either route

And "people who have faith that a deity exists" - aka theism - is not a unified religious group either.
