The problem isn't about Gods at all, the problem is people do not understand and understand the concepts and ideals correctly. That is what the fight should be about, not just saying it isn't real. You fight the problems of what they are teaching in the name of an ideal not just say that ideal doesn't exist. Because it does and it can and will come and bite you on the ass if you leave the people teaching it unchecked.
Atheism isn't an ideal, it's a lack of one. It can only exist in and against the presence of theism.
Without theism, atheism does not exist. Communism was an ideal, just like theism. To stop an ideal you need to stop the followers, not just tell them they are wrong. You need to prove it, you need to stand up and do something about it, not sit there and hope that it self-corrects. Saying that Communism didn't or doe not exist would be idiotic to say. Just like saying that God doesn't exist(The ideal that there is something to believe in that is greater then yourself).
What is absurd is not facing the fact that saying you are an atheist isn't of saying, you are a humanist.
The best way to change a crappy ideal is to show them something better instead of telling them they are wrong.
