Oprah disses atheists or does she?

Unless you have been living under a rock you’ll be aware of the  fuss over Oprah’s claim that  “atheists must believe in God if they experience awe and wonder”, during her interview with Diana Nyad. What struck me as interesting were the subsequent remarks made by Nyad as she continued to remark, “The soul lives on since we have created so much energy”. Was she  really claiming the existence of a soul as in the old fashioned  sense of the term? Or was she using it in a poetic sense?

If Diana Nyad really does believe in an afterlife she is not the only self avowed atheist who does. So did Oprah diss an atheist or not?
