A lack of cheese is not cheese.

A lack of belief in a god is not a belief. The function of a religion is to provide moral guidance. Simply rejecting the notion of god provides no moral guidance. Therefore atheism is not a religion, and atheists must look elsewhere for moral guidance.

Sort of like that.
