Believes that gods, like fairies, don't exist.
Atheist: "All religions try to steal market-share from each other. Christianity stole pagan believers by celebrating Christmas on the same day as the festival for Mithras the sun god. So a bunch of simple-minded, self-righteous pillocks isn't going to stop me having fun at Christmas."

A person who does not believe in a supreme being. Most of these may be classified under the following definitions:

1) Aggressive atheist: attacks other religions and is often intolerant to the follower of other religions. Often brings up the insensitive fact that faith is the "complete acceptance of a God without proof," somewhat equatable to ignorance, which, among other things, is the "complete acceptance of an idea without proof."

2) Passive/Tolerant atheist: does not believe in a supreme being but accepts that others do. Does not usually bring up the above fact unless attacked for being an atheist.

Not to be confused with taoism or confucianism, which are philosphies and do not mention gods or the afterlife. Atheism is a state of nonbelief. One can be a Taoist Atheist, which would be a person who seeks to understand and learn from nature and does not believe in a god.
1) "Hahahaha! You believe in a God! You're one stupid fucker!" (Bad way to be an atheist)

2) "You're a Southern Baptist? That's cool. I'm an atheist. Please don't shoot me. I'm not criticizing you... no! STOP! PLEASE! I'M NOT INSULTING YOU!" (Good way to be an atheist... or... maybe not...)

1. One who does not believe in any gods. There would be nothing wrong with this if most of them didn't fit the second definition.

2. Some know-it-all teenager who pretends to hate religion, but celebrates Christmas because s/he is a greedy hypocrite.

A very broad catagory of people that others may consider anything from unethical to logical. In truth atheism (a-lacking; theism-beleif in a higher power) makes up a large number of people with different beleifs. Not all atheists are such because they don't have proof that God exists.

I, for one, am atheist because I know that if I were Christian, and I ended up in heven, I would feel guilty that a good many people in hell were there for eternity because they grew up with one set of "heretical" beleifs and "were never taught better".

I beleive that hell is a punishment that people are told they will face if they are not good to their fellow man. This would be a good thing, however, if, say, a Native American, who did not beleive Christ was the son of God and did only good during his life, goes to hell, that defeats the concept.

Nobody has the right to say one child is born with "original sin" and the way to cleanse him is to pay the church.

I have many reasons to be atheist (and science is one of them). It is always better to judge the individual than to put everybody into about 25 groups and dictate their right to live on this planet based on that.
