In the United States this is typically someone who started out as a pushy judgmental Christian, surrounded themselves with other pushy judgmental Christians, then realized that God is not compatible with being pushy and judgmental and threw the God part out of their life instead of the pushy judgmental part.
You Christians are all pushy and judgmental, I would know because I used to be one. ... When are you going to realize the Bible is a myth, you moron?

A person who does not believe that a "god" or supreme being exists. And, although often forgotten, this does include not beliving Satan, also. So, no, we're not Gothic; we just don't have a preference. Some Atheist people may sound arrogant to you, but it is just that they are having trouble understanding why you belive in god, and you are having trouble understanding they don't. They usually don't make a big deal of it, unless you offend them just because you belive otherwise. This is not to be confused with being agnostic, which is a person who is not sure whether a supreme being exists or not.

Someone who does not believe in any God and often paranormal activities.

Also, judging by the other definitions posted on here, they are people that come under a lot of flak from believers.
Some people say Atheism is the Belief in nothing and some say it is a lack of belief.

Its the atheist's choice really.

Simple as.

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.

I'm confused as to why people get so agressive about this sort of thing. One of the reasons I'm atheist is so that I am free from living my life as a slave to "faiths" that are blind and force-fed to millions.

So, for the religious: stop condemning everyone that disagrees with you. I think it's selfish for many born-into-religion people to automatically assume that out of the thousands of faiths they could have possibly just ASSUME that they have the "right" one.

For the atheists: Don't put out another stereotype for the rest of us to deal with.

Someone else, feel free to convince me why on earth I would ever need faith, except as a security blanket that supplements the lack of personal and mental strength I have as a human being?
You say it's weakness to be atheist, not to be able to "understand" complex concepts about the creation of the universe.

I say, I'm not going to spend my life searching for the meaning of life and instead will go live it, hopefully finding happiness and doing something good for the world.
