Chris,

So, religion is not limited to the supernatural, according to you.  I say that religion by definition must have a supernatural component.  http://oxforddictionaries.com/us/definition/american_english/religion  This is why I do not accept the claim that atheism is a religion.  Of course, I am open to being persuaded that I am wrong about this.
