Many people often confuse atheism with agnosticism, by saying that atheists are confused and have no faith whatsoever. This is not true. Although there are many different kids of atheists, the many principle is that there is no God or higher being. They do not always rely on science to come to this conclusion. Therefore, atheists do believe and have faith; they believe that there is no God and they have faith that God does not exist. Agnostics do not believe in God but they do not believe that there is no God. Atheism is often a teenage phase, but it also lasts for life. Some Atheists judge Christians, Jews, etc., but some do not, and I think it is very judgemental to classify all Atheists as "self-obsessed judgemental people who hate anyone who's not an atheist". In my experience, if you respect an Atheist's religion, they are, in most cases, more than likely to respect yours.
One:

Religious Person: Hey, I have youth group this weekend. Wanna come?
Atheist: Thanks, but no thanks. I don't believe in God.
Religious Person: Oh, that's cool. I respect that.

Two:

Religious Person: Hey, I have youth group this weekend. Wanna come?
Atheist: Thanks, but no thanks. I don't believe in God.
Religious Person: OH MY GOD. WHY NOT? JESUS IS MY LORD AND SAVIOR AND THE BIBLE CLEARLY STATES THAT. IT'S REALLY STUPID NOT TO BELIEVE IN GOD. I HAVE TO SAVE YOU.

Three:

Religious Person: Hey, I have youth group this weekend. Wanna come?
Atheist: OH MY GOD, NO. CHRISTIANITY IS A BUNCH OF FAIRY-TALES, STUPID MADE UP STORIES. YOU SHOULD BE AN ATHEIST, JUST LIKE ME, THEN YOU'LL BE SCIENTIFIC AND SMART AND LOGICAL AND STUFF LIKE THAT.
Religious Person: Erm... okay.

My Point Is:
Obviously, there are assholes in every religion / way of living that you think you should live just like them. Some Christians are like that, some Atheists are like that, some Jews are like that, and so on, and so on. This will never change, but just because you know one or two people like that, it doesn't mean that they are all like that.
