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.

Any person clever enough to take a stand against inconsistent religious theories and practices and instead live their life independently from alleged divine authority figures and lifestyles which enforce unjustified regulations upon their existence. Atheists generally believe that there is no god- although reasons for this choice of opinion differ, many revolve around logical thinking and lack of scientific proof, which concludes that no such being exists. Just because someone is an atheist does not mean that they do not want to believe in god... it just means that there is no realistic evidence to support any claims of god's existence- and therefore no reason to believe in god itself.
An atheist is a person of logic and sense, independent of religion and it's customs.

One who has disbelief in any form of a higher being. It is not necessary for an atheist to disprove the existance of a higher being, because those who are not atheists, cannot prove that a higher being exists. Both atheism and religion are based on faith.
Atheist: I don't believe in God.
Non-Atheist: Prove that God doesn't exist!
Atheist: ¡Prove that he/she does exist!
