I'm also an atheist but people are entitled to their own beliefs. And like Alan says, some scientists do believe in some kind of supreme being without sacrificing their scientific objectivity.

What really worries me is that people of an orthodox bent have a tendency to impose their belief system on others, questioning the separation between Church and State.
