Atheists do not consider Atheism a faith or religion.  They believe in doing what is right because it is right.  Being good because good is good.  They believe that you should be honest in all things.  They believe that when you don't know the answer it does not mean that some diety did it.  They believe that religions cause more harm than good (how many Atheist terrorists have you heard of).  They don't all believe the same thing, they don't even agree on the things I listed above.  Being Godless means you have no excuse to hate and that when you do something bad you can't make it all better with a prayer.  The only thing atheists really have in comon is that they don't believe in God. But most would accept God in a second if He asked them to.
