??? What are you talking about. Do Atheists not very strongly believe there is no god? That is every bit a belief as is its opposite.

RE: #2 - #6: see the sixth sense noted here: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/religion . There doesn't need to be for a set of beliefs to be a religion.

For more thought on the matter, see the following:
All the best.
