Because your atheism can be caused by more than one factor. One factor might be autism. But you might have your "theory of mind intact", but dismiss the voices in your mind as mere phenomenology caused by your cognitive mechanisms going wrong and misfiring. Even us atheists can hear can believers call "god's mind states". It's just us atheists, know it's not God, but a mental model we have created through religious representations and our person-file system. Autism is one of the causes of atheism, but not the only one, of course.
