Atheism is the distantiation of God. These people claim to worship nothing, so are in fact claiming to be souvereign/supreme beings, actually God himself.
I wonder what their doctrine is about.
They very much lack souvereignity if you ask me.

the point is claiming to worship nothing is claiming souvereignity

Worship is a strong word, and in my mind, a word of a slave or servant.
I am not an atheist, but I do not and will never worship any one thing. I am my own being, a cosmic fraction of my creator.
My creator is nameless and formless, though has gifted me with consciousness, self identity and an internal compass to guide from right and wrong.
If my creator is supreme in the grand scheme of things, I am as in essence, supreme. The very fact I am alive and intelligent in this harsh-impossible elemental realm we coined 'Universe' is a work of miracles of it's own.
Atheist or not, Faith does not mean Worship or servant.
Faith is internal judgement of what you believe is right, just and real.
