It looks like I'm going to be the first contributor to quote Tertullian;
"It is certain because it is impossible"- sometimes misquoted as "I believe because it is absurd".
The argument in the OP is that Theists and Atheists can be united by putting faith in the unknown.
It can't work, though, because the whole point of the Biblical branch of Theism is that their God is not unknown. He communicates.
This is precisely what the Atheist viewpoint (whether you call it faith or not) denies.
So the two viewpoints can never be in unity.
