It's because of an ancient concept called "The congregation of like minded souls" .

Humans gather together to worship on a regular basis , because of numerous reasons , supernatural , loyalty , appreciation , sociological , etc ... but also because it is believed that regular attendance makes you less likely to commit sin . and people say when big headed morons are coming u hide there.and eyeliner boys.

Atheists can be found present in churches during services for several innocuous reasons:

  • They are closet atheists who, for business or family reasons, must appear to be believers so as to maintain good relations and personal safety
  • They enjoy the music as music and the ceremony as pageantry
  • They see friends and relatives there on predictable basis
  • They like to sit quietly and practice their breathing, memorize poems, do mental math problems, meditate on Zen truths
  • Are keeping an agreement made with their spouses
  • To support all the other atheists attending (for whatever reason that they are there) and joke about the service later
  • To raise the hackles of the other parishioners by indicating the problems with the sermons simple views after the service
  • To get free coffee and cookies after the service
  • To be reminded af the gullibility of the general membership
  • To ignore the service (not sit, stand, respond, pray) as they were forced to participate as a child

Members of churches may think atheists go to churches for malevolent reasons to:

  • Steal hosts and holy water
  • Mislead children or corrupt others
  • Mock believers
  • Chant satanic spells
  • Because they are lost or know they are wrong and want to come back
  • Out of fear of the afterlife, personal problems or doubt
  • They are only pretending to be atheists
  • It is part of the atheist agenda (or other conspiracy) to destroy the West

Generally, no.
