ATHEISM DEFIND: AND WE AIN'T NO RELIGION!

So as to cut down on any confusion....

I've had the Bible Pounders before tell me that Atheism is a "religion."
And I keep telling them that if they are going to do drugs, spend a bit more and get the "GOOD DRUGS!"
Here is the definiation of atheism so when they come calling you can clear the air about it. Please feel free to cut and paste this. I've included the reference too. Just for more ammo....
