1. A person who dosn't belive in a higher being, God or anything that is similar.

Some Atheists except that science has already proven that God dosn't exist.

But Actually, the truth is science and religion connot prove the existence or unexistence of a God or higher being .ect.

I'm an atheist because it is so confusing to choose weather to belive or not to belive.

Both sides think they are the right one (Atheist vs christians).

They both have strong and "Definate" feelings about what they belive.

Atheism isn't a religion by the way.

Hey lets just think for a second. Ok lets go back to the times of exploration. There were lands where there wasn't any christianity, BUT there was some kind of religion. In countries like Australia and Hawaii and Other islands and north and south America. They all had natives before the european exploers, they all had there theories of creationism(like Christianity) they had higher beings or daities. They all had stories of how things came to be, like animals and sertain aspects of nature. Those religions are practicually wiped out when the europeans came and took over, but the stories still exist.

What I'm trying to state is that all cultures have their theories of how something came to be or something like that. All cultures have there theories.

Religions tell people that other religions are wrong in someway, yep even the so called all loving Christianty Religion.

It's human nature to be like this. Don't worry in the future we will all find out the TRUTH.
I'm an atheist. Here I made up a based on truth example I made up of:
The Days of exploration:-

Native Hawaiin: Aloha
European explorer preist: What is this figure.
Native Hawaiin: Its is our God (insert name here)
European explorer preist: WHAT!!!!!!!blasphermy.*Whacks figure to the ground*
You should be obeying Jesus.
Native Hawaiin: WHAT!!!!!!!! Whos Jesus????
European Explorer: He is the Almighty you should have heard of him because he is the lord.
Native hawaiin: I havn't heard of such a thing nor has any one on the island!!!!!!!?????
European explorer: You have been persuaded by the devil!!!!!!
Native hawaiin: WHO!!!??????

Atheist-One who does not believe that God or gods exist. That's it. That's all there is to it. NEVER i mean fucking NEVER judge a whole group of people because of what some of them believe. Yes, some blindly condemn religion. Yes, some are just angry, angst-ridden teens. Yes, some say they don't believe but inside actually do. And yes, some are confused and don't know what to believe, or are just scared to. But some athiests actually CARE about the truth and have done research and personal reflection to come to a personal conclusion based on tons and tons of thought. Also, NEVER assume that you're right! No matter what you believe. Even if someone honestly believe something completely ridiculous to YOU, keep that to YOURSELF. Judging people BEFORE you really know them is parallel to racism, and people can NEVER be judged as a group. Some athiests are conceeded assholes who are so smug cause they believe they're right. But some athiests have considered the possiblities of higher powers and have actually TRIED to believe in greater enlightenment through God. I have my beliefs and that has NOTHING to do with my personality. I can have fun. I can use common sense and rationality. I think about consequences. I think about other people's feelings. I know that my reasons for this disbelief may offend you, so i KNOW that i have to keep them to myself unless asked to say why. People, you have YOUR beliefs of what you think is right. That doesn't mean you have to bring it upon other people, even if you THINK you're doing the right thing. Everyone has their reasons for thinking something, but someone's belief in their own personal TRUTH cant tell you who they are. Please, people respect each other. That's all the world needs. Respect and common sense.
Accept minor flaws, accept human imperfection, and accept people's identities. I'm not perfect. I KNOW there's a possibility that I'm wrong. Maybe some people just need to hear that.
Dude 1: Dude you coming to the party tonight?
Dude 2: Nah, sorry. Got church tomorrow.
1: Alright, man. Do whatcha gotta do.
2: Say you wanna come some time? Just so you can see what I beleive?
1: Sure, why not? I might be atheist, but who knows? Exploring the possibilities may find something that appeals to me more. It would be ignorant to just assume without personal thought that there is no higher power.
2: Glad to hear it.

(You see?! 2 people with completely different beliefs that can still be friends because they accept their PERSONALITIES over religion)

To be without any religious beliefs.
I am an atheist. I don't believe in heaven, hell, spirits, or souls. I think of after-death as the same state as pre-birth. I have no creed, no rituals, no voices telling me to do crazy shit. Atheism is not a religion. Religious people like to call it one because their narrow minds can't imagine living without at least ONE delusion. If atheism was a religion then disbelief in Zeus would be a mythology, and clear would be a color.

Someone who does not subscribe to any religions and does not believe in any gods or deities.

Strong atheism: Makes a claim that no gods exist.

Weak atheism: Does not make any claim about the existance of gods. Does not believe in gods because there is no evidence for them.
"Hey do you want to go to my church this Sunday?"
"No I am an atheist"

Do you believe in god?

Strong atheist: No, gods are just fairy tales created by man.

Weak atheist: No, there is no evidence for me to justify such a beleif with.

Someone who believes in no God. Most people really don't care about religious beliefs and don't judge their friends off of them. You know what they say...
Atheist:I don't believe in God
Christian:Oh, that's cool
Atheist:What? Your not going to persecute me for saying that?
Christian:No, not at all. My best argument is this - If YOUR right and IM wrong about God, I lose nothing. However, if IM right and YOUR wrong, well, sucks to be you...

1.) We are just normal people trying to live our lives.

2.) An atheist, contrary to seemingly popular belief, is a relatively normal person.

The atheist simply believes that there is/are no God/gods. Generally, atheists don't consider themselves to be smarter than all theists. You could say that atheism is taking the Christian practice of not recognizing such beliefs as Paganism one step further in not recognizing any religion. Atheists also tend to be more tolerant, and usually do not proselytize. Atheism is not a "belief," it is a lack of any belief and does not function as a religion would, in that the amount of atheists holds no significance.

The atheist is characterized as explaining that the Big Bang was the beginning of everything around us, but not able to explain how it came about. The Christian is characterized as then pointing out the necessicity of a God for such an act. This is where atheists differ from theists.

Atheists, for the most part, believe that the initial "ingredients" for today's universe have always been present, since it is impossible to create something from nothing. Yes, it is true that no one knows how this came to be, but then again, how can we start to understand something so incredibly complex in its nature when the necessary technology have only just come into exisitence in the last century? It will be an ongoing struggle in the following years to finally understand this phenomenon. We just don't insert God into the equation.
I am an atheist, in that I'll accept you for what you believe even if I don't quite agree with you.

People that judge every Christian based simply off the actions of people like Fred Phelps. To disprove religion, they often say such witty/original things like, "You believe in God? There's about as much proof for him as the Flying Spaghetti Monster." By the way, I was being sarcastic when saying that that was original. It was obviously stolen from The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins.
Steve: I'm an Atheist. Therefore, I'm much more intelligent than any Christian.

Doug: I don't know. There are some pretty smart Christians.

Steve: No there aren't. Fuck off.
