Is Atheism a religion?

Listening to Off The Wall, and during a discussion on religious vilification (the danish cartoon issue). Emmanuel Goldstein raised an interesting point:

"To say with certainty there is no god. You have to have some kind of faith system in play there..."

To claim something you can't possibly know (ie: what happens after death, be that harps vs pitchforks or that nothing happens) denotes faith in that belief. Interesting viewpoint...
