The assumption here is that it takes a lot of faith to believe in God. The corollary seems to be that it doesn't take any faith to not believe. The arguement is made in many churches and houses of religious and philosophical debate that "It takes more faith to not believe in God than it does to believe in God." The suggestion here is generally made that you have to believe in SOMETHING if God doesn't fit into your understanding of existence and life - to rephrase it, I would say "If not God, then who or what?"
What does that look like to you? Help me make some sense of the statement, or help me discount it. What are your thoughts?
