There are two types of atheists, but the word refers to one who lacks belief in Gods, angels, etc. A lot of atheists are respectful to what religious people believe while many others are not. The intolerant ones tend to bash religion-particularly Christianity at any chance they get and assume that all Christians are arrogant and prejudice. (Just to be fair, yes, some Christians are like this, but they cannot call themselves Christians when their attitude goes against what Jesus taught and think they can use his words to pass judgment. But there are plenty of others who actually care how someone feels.)
Christian: "I believe God and Jesus are guiding me and will help me."

Tolerant Atheist: "Religion is not really my cup of tea, but that's cool."

Christian: "I believe God and Jesus will help me."
Intolerant Atheist: "Shut up you stupid Bible thumper! Your God isn't real!"

One who doesn't believe in god(s). Usually accepts scientifically demonstrated facts, and is generally willing to change one's mind should better evidence be presented.
As an atheist, I may not know completely how Life, the Universe and Everything came into existence, but I see no reason to subscribe to a belief in a magical entity to explain it.

One who does not personally believe in a deity or God. Though some do fully deny the possibility of a God, many simply do not believe in one personally, and accept that others do. A group that faces a lot of discrimination, perhaps the most after Jews.
Atheist: Hello, I am an Atheist.

Tolerant Christian: Sup dude.

Intolerant Christian: Demon! Filth! Urchin! You're in denial of the omnipresent, wonderful God!

Tolerant Christian: Dude, please shut up, you're giving us a bad na-

Intolerant Christian: THEY'RE THE REASON THE WORLD SUCKS! THEY HAVE NO MORALS! GOOD THING I'M GOING TO HEAVEN AND FUCKERS LIKE THAT ARE GOING TO HELL!

Atheist: Actually, I do have morals, I believe killing is wrong, and-

Intolerant Christian: OF COURSE KILLING IS WRONG, IT'S IN THE 10 COMMANDMENTS!

Atheist: I don't follow the Bible though, because I actually
believe killing is wrong myself, I don't need to be ordered to by a "deity".

Intolerant Christian: THAT'S IT, I'M BRINGING MY FRIENDS OVER TO LYNCH YOU, MOTHERFUCKER!

Tolerant Christian: ...I hate myself.

An atheist is someone who is not a theist. That's all that atheism implies.

Atheists are NOT communist.
Atheists do not avert their eyes when they see a church.
Atheists do not all have poor relations with their parents.
Athesits do not all hate Christians.

I am an atheist. Yet I go to a Catholic College.

A person with no invisible means of support.
Atheist: I do not accept the existence of a deity or of divine beings that I cannot perceive.

Just as a person with belief appears to have no visible means of support. Belief is supported by faith in historical evidence in the Biblical testaments, Josephus, Philo, and other noted historians.

One without a religion, particularly Christianity. Generally, they have read and understood enough of the Bible and general preaching to make their own opinion. They can manage to see the big picture, rather than be "brainwashed" into a 2000 year old cult, which is only accepted because it is hammered into the brains of us while we are gullible children.
The Church used to say the World was flat and the Sun rotated around the Earth.

Also, according to the Bible, the world is only 4000 years old, all evidence found that has been pre-dated is a trick by the Devil... yeah, sure.
