Not a greedy know-it-all teenager, who pretends to hate religion but celebrates Christmas, as posted by anonymous, rather someone who does not believe in god. This person may or may not celebrate the overly-commercial holiday of Christmas which no longer has a basis in religion.
I do not believe in any deity, therefore I am an atheist.

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 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.

One who believes there are no gods in existence.
An atheist hasn't beliefs that conflict with a Christian or Muslim.

A person that does not believe in Satan, God, or any other religious figures or beliefs.

Some atheists are bugged by religious people.

Other atheists are cool with the fact that other people have different beliefs.

Many people criticize atheists for celebrating Christmas, which I think is complete and utter bullshit. Christmas, although a religious holiday, has other meanings behind it. It's a time to spend with loved ones as well. So atheists have that right to celebrate Christmas.
Heather: Hey, do you go to church?
Alison: No, I'm an atheist.

Heather: Why are you celebrating Christmas? You're an atheist...
Alison: Get off my ass, Heather.

Someone who isn't stupid enough, or gullible enough, to believe in magic, or silly creation myths, especially those of certain ancient, backwater desert tribes.
"At my bible study we were studying Genesis and how God created the Earth and the heavens in 7 days."

"Thats just fucking stupid, i'm an atheist, now get the fuck of my porch."

According to Christians, all atheists are dumb, attack christians, and worship satan

In reality, not all atheists attack religious people, and they can be smart, and they don't choose to worship anything. Its more like the Christians attacking the atheists. they are normal people like you and me.

I have many atheist friends, and they respect what i believe
Atheist: I'm an atheist
Christian: you are stupid for believing in no god. you are gonna go to hell
Atheist: Its great that you're a christian, i just choose to be an atheist

Normal people who lack a belief in a supreme diety. Just like normal people they can be jerks or be nice, it's really not that interesting.
Atheists are just like you and everyone else and probably do not wish to eat your children, because they do not do that sort of thing despite what your Aunt Samantha says.
