Sankhya sutra says that the existence of God cannot be proved. So Sankhya is Godless but not atheistic. Most of the Hindu scholars do not know this thing about Sankhya. Sankhyakarika is the shortened version of Sankhya sutra.

The theistic-atheistic distinction is a western concept that cannot be
directly mapped onto the Indic traditions.
