That's totally opposite from what I think.  No excitement?  What else is there in life?  Hum! Maybe some atheists are boring, LOL.
A lot depends on your definition of excitement. I, and many atheists I know, like to learn new things and hear others' points of view.
 
Atheists do lots of exciting things, they just draw the line a immoral, inane ones.
 
Besides that, the fact that a person is an atheist has nothing to do with how he/she chooses what is exciting and what isn't. Some like listening to lectures and exchanging ideas. Others don't. The choice has nothing to do with atheism--except for one factor: atheists tend to be more intellectual than non-atheists. It's been my experience that atheists are generally more moral as well. If atheist pursuits are boring to you, perhaps you should join a religious community where there is all kinds of "excitement" going on.
