Aargh, not this one again!

Atheists do NOT /believe there are no gods/. That is not atheism. 
Atheists /don't believe there are gods/ instead. Big difference.

Yes, I'm sure there are people who call themselves atheists and say they 
have a belief in the non-existence of gods, but that is not what atheism 
is defined as. It's non-belief in the existence of gods. They look 
similar ideas, but if you look at them properly, you can see they are 
worlds apart. Believing that something is not true is a different thing 
to not believing that something is.
