Are atheists part of the Army of the Antichrist, preparing the way by enlisting as many followers as possible?

I promise I am not trying to be deliberately provocative. I just want to know from both theists and atheists how they are positioned in the spiritual conflict.
Update: Thanks all. It seems the theists say "yes" and the atheists say, "if you don't believe in God, you don't believe in the Antichrist either." An absolutely valid point.
