The Chinese alone make atheism the most popular religious ideology. If you claim that atheism is not a religion, my response is that the original form of Buddhism was atheistic, as it still is in Tibet. It definitely is a belief system.

In addition, part b, buddhism also wins hands down as the most non-violent major religious belief system. If we extend the contest to minor religions, then Jainism is the most non-violent as they are careful not to kill anything alive, including insects.
