The Blasphemy challenge

Ha! I found something I thought was semi-profound. I've struggled to find a quick reply to the continual claim that atheism is a religion. I found this somewhere:
-Atheism is a religion in much the same way "off" is a TV channel.
A story on ABC news claimed that only 2% of Americans are atheists or agnostics.
Do you actually believe this? I don't. Nearly everyone I know is an agnostic. If you were to define "God" as merely the theistic religious version, "atheists" would comprise roughly 15-20% (I'm taking that from another recent poll I saw of American's religious beliefs). Where do they get this 2%? Thats nuts!
