You seem to believe in a false dichotomy: Theist = Good,

Atheist = Bad.

Atheists as a group have committed no particular atrocities because atheists are not a group at all. They are simply those who do not believe in any Deity. They are not organized into militant groups. Atheism is NOT a religion or a culture. From a taxonomic point of view, atheists are merely a wastebasket category.

The whole issue reminds me of the meaningless category of "Invertebrates" in zoology. One might as well divide up all animals as proboscideans (all elephant-like animals) and "non-proboscideans" (all non-elephant-like animals).

Similarly, "atheist" is an absurd categorization since it is defined by a negative. Valid social categories are not defined negatively.
