A favorite opponent of philosophers, politicians, pseudo-intellectuals, real intellectuals, atheists, creationists, political activists, and conspiracy theorists, and a perennially useful one at that.
Said the creationist to the uninformed, using his favorite straw man, "Since randomly jamming your television set rarely fixes any problem, the blind process of evolution is therefore a scientific improbability."

107
A genre of naturalistic fantasy that usually has no basis whatsoever in scientific fact.
'Star Wars' is not science fiction; it's a big dumb fantasy movie about space wizards. 'The Matrix' is not science ficiton either; it's a comic book action movie with a pretentious pseudo-philosophy thrown in. What then, constitutes science fiction? A piece that actually cares about the plausibility of its ideas; a rarified sub-set of literature and cinema to be certain.

108
The most useless philosophy ever devised.
The purpose of questioning values is to determine which are useful and which aren't. Nihilism defeats itself. Saying everything is worthless is like saying everything is valuable. It is a cop-out philosophy for angry teenagers who want to sound cool and intellectual.

109
A societal construct that is, in actuality, about as useless and restrictive as race.
There may be unfathomable, uncrossable chasm that exist between certain types of people, but gender should not be considered one of them.

To pay homage without acknowledging the source.
All writers are in some way or another plagiarists. Some are just better at it than others.

An individual whom evolution and society both favor because he exhibits selfish, cruel, extroverted genes which will enable to him to successfully negotiate the adult world. Society pretends to dislike him, while hypocritically acting as if we approve of his behavior. Contrary to popular belief, bullies often ARE successful later in life, while their victims are not. After all, it is strength humans value and strength that rules us.

See also jerk and nice guy.
Bullies may be beneath contempt, but I also hate to admit that I may envy them.

The lack of a belief in the existence of a god or gods. This usually also means a lack in a belief in an afterlife, the soul, the supernatural, or any sort of ultimate reality outside of the physical one.

For the atheist, reality is limited to reductionist empiricism, morals are usually relative or determined by the rules of conduct that make civilization possible, life is it's own purpose, and the truth or falsity of religious beliefs is apparently subject to evidence (though there are no specifications as to what these are).
Athesim is not, despite many claims here, the default belief of all life or humanity at birth. To say that babies and animals are atheists is silly simply because we cannot ask them, and some indeed even argue that they are aware of the presence of "god" within them. Also, the fact that nearly every culture around the globe has, in some form or another, developed some mode of religious belief goes to show that religion is a much deeper part of the human experience than this particualr brand of atheism will admit.
