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.

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.

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.

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.
