Thank you for telling us what science deals with. However, that is not telling us what atheism deals with.
Atheist would like to hitch their wagon to the horse of science, but atheism is no more rational a system of thought than religion is. Atheism, too, is dogmatic, and while religion is based on faith, atheism is pardon the expression the "evil twin" of faith that is doubt and systematic skepticism.
Fact is, atheism does not equate to science.
