1.
A term given to those in an online multiplayer game (usually FPS) who will place themselves in a strategic position and wait for an extended period of time until a target enters his field of view. The position usually allows one to surprise the target and allows the "camper" to eliminate him with ease. There are variants of this such as camping an item to repeatedly gain its benefits and defending a critical location.

Camping is a perfectly legitimate strategy, but is criticized by a majority of the online community, usually because players get frustrated by being killed in such a fashion, it slows the game down and is considered an unskilful art. Idiots always resort to insulting a camper, who will most likely have a higher score than them. Incompetent admins sometimes kick them and the camper society becomes one of ridicule and resentment.

It isn’t illegal to position yourself in such a way that you have an advantage, that’s smart thinking and its part of the game. Some people need to grow some balls.
*Random moron runs around like a retard and subsequently becomes a campers prey. Camper makes a kill*

I expect the definition to be voted down, but those of intelligence know who is right.

1. Strictly, someone who believes that it is impossible to know whether or not God exists. Note that they may still be either an atheist or a theist, they simply do not believe it is possible to prove beyond all doubt that God does or does not exist.
2. Someone who neither believes fully that God exists nor that s/he does not exist. This is the more common usage. Note that such a person can be neither an atheist or a theist.
Most agnostics are open-minded people, but there are always exceptions to the rule.

3.
An attempt to understand the world around us through observation of natural phenomenon. One of the most important concepts in science is the scientific method - a series of steps designed to allow us to learn about our surrounding efficiently and without misunderstanding.

Science is also sometimes posed in opposition to religion. While the two are not necessarily incompatible, there are several points on which they disagree, and there is also a major difference in their underlying principles: Science fits the theory to the evidence. Religion fits the evidence to the theory.
Science allows us to learn about the world.

1. Members of the species homo sapiens.

2. The members of the species homo sapiens taken as a group. While not the most numerous species either in individual number or in biomass, they consider themselves the dominant species of their planet, which the majority of them call "Earth." This claim is quite possibly justified, seeing as they have covered a great deal of it with their own constructions, never realizing that they are destroying many of the resources they depend upon in the process.

Many of them believe they were created by some sort of god, however, few agree upon exactly what form this god takes nor what his opinions on certain matters are.

Essentially, a bunch of mother fuckers who think they're leet haxors just because they've progressed so far that they have the nuclear capabilities blow up the Earth, and yet still can't manage to live on the same planet without starting a few hundred wars a year, consuming the natural resources they depend upon without heed for their future, mistreating each other for various superficial reasons such as race or ethnic group or in some cases for no reason at all, and continually complaining about the problems they've created for themselves.

6.
Another necessary evil perpetrated by the government, which is itself a necessary evil. While many people disagree over just how much taxes they need to pay, it is stunningly obvious that we need to pay some taxes. Running the country, after all, isn't a part-time job.

The general reaction to taxes is high, usually because people are very attached to the small green slips of paper they call 'money.'
1: I'm a Democrat! I want higher taxes!
2: I'm a Republican! I want lower taxes!
3: I'm an Urban Dictionarian! I want no taxes!

7.
Everything that exists, according to some theories. However, other theories hold there to be multiple Universes, and some even hold that a omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, omnicognizant, and basically omni(insert suffix here) being called (variously) Jehovah, Yehaweh, Allah, etc., but usually called by the name of 'God' created the Universe(s).

A collection of Universes is usually called a 'Multiverse.'
The Universe originated in the Big Bang, according to one theory.
