Is atheism a religion?

If it is can I declare my house an atheist church where atheists actively practice not practicing religion and donate tons of money to my own church and get away with not paying taxes?

    I think atheism was added to the list of "religions" that are tax exempt in the US, so yes.

      The u.s. is not the rest of the World , and atheism is also by no means a religious belief either and Raynaldo is also correct-

    No it is not , since religion base on atleast these three things, the Prophets, the Holy Books being teached by the Prophets concerned and the followers from the beginning up till present and would be continued till the end of the world.

    Atheism is NOT a religion. And no church should get away with not paying taxes.

    No, but atheist organizations can access the same tax exempt status and other rights as religious groups can.

    Is bald a hair color?

    Atheism has

    - no supreme being(s) or supernatural entities

    - no weekly ceremonies

    - no place of worship (church, mosque, temple, kingdom hall, great baobab tree...)

    - no "official" dogma

    - no mandatory teaching.

    Also, the church business system is US only and has nothing to do with spirituality.

    Technically, it is not. The only commonality is not believing in a deity. However, there can be a para-religion or parody religion that accepts atheists in its membership. The United Church of Bacon is headquartered in Las Vegas where I live.

    https://unitedchurchofbacon.org/

    They occassionally post billboards.

    It is a legal church. There are about 20,000 members worldwide.

    They have real goals and missions. There is a serious side fighting discrimination against atheists in society.

    As to getting your home declared a religious church, you need to look up the rules and requirements in your legal jurisdiction (location). Possibly contact the Church of Bacon. Penn Jillette, of Penn and Teller, is an active member.
