Does it matter, for these purposes? Logical flaws are logical flaws.
But if it reassures you I am a quite thoroughgoing atheist.

Wow. One of the times where I hope someone is being sarcastic at me
because their being serious is much scarier... Your original point was
right: you don't easily punch holes through blind faith. But faith
isn't about stupidity. It's about taking something on faith, or perhaps
not subjecting something to criticism or consistency checks. Subjecting
it to bad criticism won't help -- in fact it will give them good reasons
for not listening to you any further. Likewise you don't counter bad
environmental arguments with bad counter-arguments.

A dream of a meme
is a wonderful theme
or so we always do deem;
But a ream in a beam
causes termites to teem
or so it to me does seem.
