There's a lot of ways of believing in God... 1. Magic thinkers believe the bible is literally true, even the magic bits that contradict the other magic bits. This is classic faith. 2. Allegorical thinkers believe the bible is not literally true, but believe it in the sense that, taken as a whole, it is a powerful anchor for ones life and a central part of their culture. 3. Most folks believe in God and specific myths because they were raised in a cultural that taught them to believe it and they aren't really interested in rigorously interrogating the ideas.
If you an atheist arguing about the Easter myth with... 1. ...a magical thinker than you are a jerk because it's an impossible argument with no common ground upon which to build agreement. 2. ...an allegorical thinker than you are a jerk because you basically already agree on the core facts and are really just attacking how they choose to spend their free time. 3. ...most folks than you are a jerk because you are forcing someone into an antagonistic conversation that they have no interest in.
It's a bit of a stretch to call (1) (bible literalism) "classic faith" considering how relatively recent a phenomenon it is.
