A person who does not believe in the existence of God or gods. Atheists do not usually have any dislike towards other religions, although some might. Atheists typically believe that there is scientific reasoning behind things that people would usually say are caused by God. Atheists will probably not try to change people's beliefs and are usually very respectful of people's religious views (although some may not be). And whether a person is an atheist or has any other religious status you can think of, it really shouldn't matter-a persons religious views are theirs personally and don't usually affect others, so we should all be accepting of each other's beliefs.

An individual who has decided they do not believe in a god or gods - most consider the idea of a god or gods as being an extremely remote possibility, to the point of being unrealistic, ergo atheist. As opposed to a theist who does believe in a god or gods, e.g. Hindus, Muslims, Christians, etc. Not to be confused with agnostics, who have not decided if they believe in the idea of a god or gods e.g. Thomas Huxley. Also not to be confused with anti-theists who are atheists that take an active stance against theism e.g. Richard Dawkins.
I don't believe in God therefore I'm an atheist.

B: I know, that's kinda weird

B: Yeah, atheists are so smart.

A person who either:

a. Does not have any theistic beliefs of any nature ("weak" atheism)
b. Actively believes that there is no God, or indeed any matter of supernatural entity ("strong" atheism"

There are two noteworthy things about the concept of atheism:

a. "Atheism", or a- in front of theism, simply means "not theistic". Therefore, the literal definition of the word atheism is what was referred to before as weak atheism. The differentiation between "weak" and strong atheism, however, is now necessary, due to the proliferation in use of labeling strong atheism as simply atheism.
b. "Belief" that there is no God is still the important point here for strong atheism. No reasonable atheist would assert that they KNOW there is no God, just as no reasonable theist would assert that they KNOW there IS a God - there is no proof for either preposition, and thus certainty is impossible either way. However, strong atheism relies on the fact that logically proving something does NOT exist is far harder than proving something does exist (and in fact is generally impossible), and thus tends not to perceive a lack of absolute proof that there is no God as a weakness in their arguments.
I am an atheist. This tells you nothing about my personality, character, or intelligence. All it tells you is that I do not have particular belief in God. That is all that atheists have in common.

The title given to someone when they realize God is just a mythological character.
God does not exist! I know this is true, because Santa would not lie to me. If Santa Claus is an atheist, so am I.
