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.

Someone that thinks of a god or gods as impossible, or just doesn't really care. Atheism is a lack of belief, not a belief so atheism is not a religion. Atheists may or may not have a love of science. Some atheists have plausible reasons for being an atheist, while others don't. You can be one of the following kinds of atheists:

1) Someone that has had something personal happen with their religion and doesn't believe in god because of that personal problem

2) Angry atheist: Someone intolerant to religion.

3) retaliating atheist: Someone that fights back when theists (mostly Christians) pick a fight. NOTE: Some theists confuse this one with #2 because atheists don't want Christianity to be in the government or anything symbolizing the government. These include flags, post offices, schools, town/village/city halls, etc.

4) Someone that really doesn't care and so by their lack of belief, are classified as an atheist.

5) Agnostic atheist. This one is commonly confused as agnostics. There are no such things as agnostics in the belief system. You can be an agnostic atheist or an agnostic theist, but you can't be just an agnostic.
1)

"I'm an atheist"
"Why?"
"I have had personal troubles with religion"

2)
"I am intolerant to religion"
"Why?"
"Because it is the root of all evil"

3)
"I'm an atheist and I don't think religion should be in the government"
"You are an angry atheist"
"No, I just don't want the government forcing religion on me."

4)

"Are you a christian?"
"I don't really care"
"Are you an atheist?"
"Again, I don't care"

5)
"I'm an agnostic atheist. I don't believe there is enough evidence to prove the existence of a god."

Someone who doesn't believe in any God. There are two types.

1. The live and let live atheists who don't shove their opinions down any ones throat. These people have social lives.

2. The arrogant, intolerant pricks who send all day long bitching and trolling on the youtube comments sections. They always talk about reason and logic but lack the logic to realize that no one is being persuaded by their intolerance. They are postive that there is no afterlife yet they spend that only life on the interent trolling people. Most of them are 15 year olds who think that they are really cool even though they don't have any friends.

Even the average Catholic priest gets more ass than the average militant atheist.
" The bigotry of the nonbeliever is for me nearly as funny as the bigotry of the believer. " -Albert Einstien

Militant Atheist: I'am atheist therefore that makes me smarter and better than everone else and I show that by trolling people on youtube.

Smart person: How about , you get a fucking life.

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.

1) Someone who does not believe in a god or any gods.

2) Someone who thinks they're better than those who are religious.
1) Religious person: I'm Christian.

Good Atheist: That's cool, I'm athiest.

2) Religious person: I'm Christian.

Bad Athiest: OMGZ!!! All Christians are such hypocrites!! they discriminate and generalize and think they're better than everyone else! I hate all the stupid Christians!

Religious person: Hey, dumbass, do you realize you just did the exact thing you just accused Christians of doing? You're the fucking hypocrite here, not us.

Bad Atheist: Uh... er... um... stop being smarter than me!

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

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."
