It's confirmed, atheism is now a religion.
@one old man – “Atheism and non belief are still matters of faith,
aren't they? Faith that they aren't wrong, just as those with other
beliefs must have faith that they aren't wrong.”Can we
assume it’s a matter of faith if you don’t believe in Zeus, Santa
Claus or unicorns?I’m guessing you would say it is rather a lack of
evidence that formed your views, yes?
Faith, in the context of this Interfaith group, is a belief in a higher being,
god if you will. Non-believers, atheists, and agnostics, have no such beliefs,
and go to great lengths (think of the number of lawsuits they file) to oppose
beliefs in god. They should not be part of a group that does believe in god.

There is a lot that can be learned from crossing cultural boundaries. I live
among Moslems and I have learned a lot from them. One time I was working
outside and I stepping inside and someone asked me, "What is new?" I
said, (more as a statement, not as a complaint), "It is really hot
outside." He said, "Hot comes from God." In other words, whatever
happens, God is in control.When I would pour out my water (it would
get too hot to drink), I would find a crack in the pavement to put the water
into the ground, not just on the pavement. I learned that from a creation
chant. The creator put life in everything and I am respecting that life and
joining in the creation.
God was looking down and smiling.
