Just popped in to say neither Atheism (which means 'not religious' O.o) or Buddhism (which is a philosophy) are religions.
Buddhism is actually a religion. While some forms of it are not supernatural, some sects of Buddhism regard the Buddha as a god. There are different categories of Buddhism which believe different things. Some are more philosophy-oriented and some are more supernaturally oriented.
As for atheism, I can agree that atheism is more non-religion than religion; however, I believe the OP used the term "religion" as to mean just spiritual philosophy in general or something to that degree.
