Let's end the stereotypes about atheists now.

I'm an atheist. Does this mean I love science? Not necessarily. I simply did not feel anything whatsoever going to church when I was little, and therefore, stopped believing. It was when I got older that the "Is realigion really plausible?" thoughts popped into my head.

Does it mean that I have faith in the government? Au contraire--I think the government and politicians and all that junk are mostly corrupt and stupid.

Do I hate other people for believing in God? Nope. In fact, I love diversity. The world would be boring as hell if we were all atheists.

Have I ever gone out of my way to convince a theist that what I believe is right? That's wrong too. I can't tell you for sure whether I'm right or wrong--it's not like a have proof or anything--so I don't bother with arguing over it. Unfortunately, a lot of theists don't pay me the same respect. :(

Am I evil? A theist may think so, but I don't. I love giving to charities, I participate in my school's choir, I love my family, and I don't smoke, drink excessively, or take sex lightly, I've never betrayed anyone, I get good grades, and I'm really nice to others.

I also have faith--not in a God, but in myself and those around me. I believe in living my life as happily as I can, since it is the only life I think I have to live. I don't constantly look to God to pull me through tough times; I pull myself through and make myself stronger.

Someone who does not believe in a deity.
Person A: Hey! How come I didn't see you at church yesterday?
Person B: Oh, I'm done with church and the whole God thing. I've decided to become an Atheist.

A person who doesn't believe in god. Someone who doesn't believe that there is a heaven or hell. Close to an agnostic, who doesn't believe that either (god or darwinism) can be proven or disproven.
Freedom of religion includes freedom from religion-No one should care if anyone is atheist or christian, everyone is entitled to their own beliefs

Someone who believes in science rather than a god or gods.

Note: This also excludes a belief in satan. Only satanists worship satan. Contrary to christian propaganda, atheists are happy, tolerant people and except in the cases of a religon being imposed upon them, they understand the diversity of beliefs, and conseal their distaste towards religon so as not to offend others.
1. Hey, you there, other atheist! Do you ever notice how we are so much happier than christians because we don't have to adhere to stupid, self contradictory rules, have Sunday morning to sleep-in, and have the knowlage that when we die, we loose all consious thought, and our bodies rot in a coffin.

2. Thankyou Mr. Atheist, without you, there'd be no TV, cars, computers, pornography or extra-warm socks because of how much christians hate science.

3. Wow, those christians sure seem angry at us atheists. Maybe its because our science has made their religon obsolete in filling the void of ignorance from thousands of years ago, and they are scared that they have based their whole lives around a fallacy, and that we are right and they are wrong.

A person who does not believe in a deity
I don't believe in God, Yahweh, Allah (all the same deity), Vishnu, Shiva, Brahma, or any other god or goddess. Therefore, I am an atheist.

A person who doesn't believe in God, which is fine by all counts. Far be it from anyone to criticize another's religious beliefs.

However, there exists a class of atheists who can't just sit still with their own beliefs and feel they have to attack others. It is pointless, however, to convince those of religion to put aside the beliefs, as it is for Atheists to take up religious beliefs.

Essentially, militant Atheists should shut up and let those of religion enjoy themselves, inasmuch that those of religion should stop proselytizing and let people form their own beliefs. What's the point in arguing about something that is impossible to prove?
Now it is such a bizarrely improbably coincidence that anything so mindbogglingly useful the Babel fish could have evolved by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as a final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God.
The argument goes something like this: “I refuse to prove that I exist,” says God, “for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.”
“But,” says Man, “the Babel fish is a dead giveaway isn’t it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don’t. QED.”
“Oh dear,” says God, “I hadn’t thought of that,” and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.

someone who does not believe in any gods. there are two kinds of atheists: strong atheists believe that the existence of gods are impossible, weak atheists (called agnostics) don't believe in god, but would start believing in him if he were proven true.

atheists usually come in two flavors: atheists who don't believe in god based on science, evolution, the big bang, humanism, skepticism and logic. the second group, unfortunately, are goths and vampires who don't believe in god because it's "alternative" and "anti-establishment".
Atheist: Gods are a logic fallacy

A person who does not believe in a god. Nothing more, nothing less. It is the opposite of theist which is a person who believes in a supernatural being or deity.
Bob: Do you think god is real?
Rick: No, I am an atheist.
Bob: Oh, that's cool. Me too!
