Impossible. Atheism is clearly defined as not believing in the existence of a god or gods (deities).
Not all atheists claim that deities don't exist.
How could a supposed atheist believe in a god?
This rant just shows more that you atheists don't like the word "faith".Atheism is the null state. Atheism requires no faith or trust.
"I'm talking about all of you atheists here."
No, you are not, because not all of the atheists here make that claim.
The only reason for you to use the word faith, in this instance, instead of trust, the more appropriate word, is to equivocate.
If someone wants to make an argument that deities don't exist, they'll use whatever words they feel are best to relate their thoughts. Muddying the waters by using the same word to describe two distinct but similar concepts isn't something a considerate person would do.
This particular example of equivocation is so ubiquitous that I will hold up every conversation I'm in where it occurs to point it out.
If trust and faith are not exactly the same thing, then they are different. If they are different, each one will be better suited in different instances. If at any time someone refuses to use the most appropriate word, the one that best fits, there must be a compelling reason for that.
If you don't understand why I don't like being associated with the word faith, I'd be glad to explain that too.
