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.

Stupid-ass high school and college students who think they know something about life in the real world.
- Cindy says she's an atheist.
- Oh, yeah? Let's ask lil-miss-know-it-all after she has her first pregnancy scare.

- Billy says he's an atheist.
- Really? Let's see how much of a fucking atheist he is when he's supporting an entire family on his income alone and gets fired.

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.

A being that doesn't believe in any deity or deities.

A.K.A what you were when you were first born.
Me: Hey, do you wanna go to church tomorrow?
You: No thanks, I'm an atheist.
Me: An atheist? What's that?
You: Somebody that doesn't believe in any deities.

An atheist is...
1. Someone who acknowledges science, evidence, and all things rational instead of pure faith in a deity or deities. Instead of relying on "The Lord" to improve their lives, an atheist would be the best he or she can be.

a. The relationship between Christians and Atheists:

Some Christians attempt to verbally attack or convert Atheists and vice versa. Both have their extremists and their everyday average joe citizens who do not intervene with the lives of the opposite.

The logical thing to do in a situation like this where some of both factions are at verbal war is to simply leave the opposite alone. The saying "If you have nothing good to say, don't say it" comes into play here.
1. Religious Guy: Please Lord bring back my lost kitten, Mr. Snuggles...
Atheist: Dude, Mr. Snuggles is gone?? C'mon lets look for him, I have a flashlight!
R.G: No, no, if I remain pious to the Lord Mr. Snuggles shall return on his own.
A: I'm sure he will...It's a shame...I'll miss that little furry guy..


Average Joe R.G: Ah, time for Church.
Average Joe A: That's cool, wanna grab a burger afterwards and talk about some current events affecting our world?
Average Joe R.G: Sure, why not :)

An under-evolved individual who has not yet developed the ability to understand concepts beyond the three dimensions that his five senses are limited to.

It can also be that he (she) makes a conscious decision to deny the existence of a god in an attempt to quench the feelings of guilt over his (her) behavior. Guilt that would not be present if there were in fact no god.
There is no god. We are all animals. Kill the jew dogs.

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.

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)
