RE: Faith of an atheist
Kierkegaard thought the absurd required it's own leap of faith. Sartre, Camus, and HoC are like, "The fuck you say Søren, no faith required."

"But that is not all; there is a passion of the absurd. The absurd man will not commit suicide; he wants to live, without relinquishing any of his certainty, without a future, without hope, without illusion, and without resignation either. He stares at death with passionate attention and this fascination liberates him. He experiences the 'divine irresponsibility' of the condemned man." - Sartre on Camus' Stranger

And love is void. The abyss is the closest we'll come to appreciating eternity, and everything else is just infatuation.

As it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
And I will show you something different from either
Your shadow at morning striding behind you
Or your shadow at evening rising to meet you;
I will show you fear in a handful of dust.
