It is dishonesty only when an alternative religion is proposed and

Atheists are not honest, because by denying a God or all God, they replace
without saying by another (impersonal) God,
That's not true....
I have not found an atheist, interested in the fundamental question, who does not
believe in something transcendental, be it mathematics, or a physical universe, etc.
Scientists don't believe in things. They only hypothesize them.
Belief = hypothesizing, in standard analytical philosophy. Science is only belief. The
mark of a belief is that it can be shown false, which is impossible for knowledge. G*
proves <> f.
An hypothesis can be shown false. A belief is an act of will and is independent of what
can be shown false - as testified to by the billions of people who believe there is a Big
Daddy in the sky who will reward them after death and punish their enemies.
