Are Atheists Just Spiritual Quitters?

I know atheists will be pissed off that I started this but who cares, they usually are pissed off on this website anyways, I mean they are anti-faith and they are posting on faith and beliefs topics...

So on to the question, when religion gets too hard and a lot of the mainstream stuff sounds pretty bogus do atheists just give up on everything having to do with spirituality?  Any phenomena that can't be explained by science now is just something that will be solved by science in the future and there is nothing special about it?

And here is something that I have asked an atheist that he failed to answer, why is humanism so popular, humanism being that all humans are equal.  I'm smarter than some, and stupider than others, I'm bigger than some, and smaller than others.  What is so equal about that?  How can humans be equal if we are all different intellects and different sizes?  There has to be a 3rd component that makes all humans equal.  Would that be our spirit?
