Theism is predicated on faith, or the belief in something either not in evidence or contrary to the evidence. An atheist is simply a person without theism, and therefore does NOT require faith. I'm shamelessly channeling Penn Jillette here, but to call "atheism a religion is like calling not collecting stamps a hobby."
Unless of course, by "faith" you mean something other than faith, in which case you should actually say what you mean rather than attempt to draw parallels where none exist.
