1) A person who does not believe in any sort of deity or "God" but accepts that others do.

2) An elitist who like to mock anyone that disagrees with them, particularly christians.

In case 2 what's disturbing is the utter contempt, disrespect, and intolerance (and in some cases, hatred) these people have for anyone that disagrees with them. They refuse to go by the principles of live-and-let-live and do-unto-others. They will counter this assertion by arguing that religious people never live-and-let-live and are always forcing religion onto people. This is of course false, and only applies to a very small minority of religious people (such as the nutjobs at the WBC) and thus is a prime example of smearing people with a vastly over-generalized statement.

Most won't admit it, but they resent the fact that most modern nations allow freedom of religion for all. Ultimately, they would like to see this right taken away someday.

atheists: People who lack belief in a god or gods. From the Greek: 'atheos' a+theos "without god" or godless.

A person who does not believe in god or gods.
Usually can be broken down into two groups.
1- The ones who don't believe in god, but don't try to change your mind either. They believe that people should believe, or not believe, in whatever they want. They usually have a job/friends/life.
2-The idiots who spend every second of their life on the computer, and since they do not see life outside of a computer screen, they come to the conclusion there is no god. They then, in an attempt to look cool, badmouth everything they can about religion. Most of them are teenagers looking to rebel, saying that following religion is mindless, when in fact they are following something just to be different, which is equally as mindless. They are also usually miserable bastards.
Christian: Hey, do you believe in God?
Atheist 1: Nah man, that's not for me. You wanna go to the mall?
Christian: ok, sounds awesome.

Christian:I don't know, I think theres some sort of deity watching over us.
Atheist 2: Fuck you man there is no god your a fukin retart if u think that a fukin imaginry man in the sky you fucking suck what you believe in isnt true but i know is true because im an arrogant conceited rebel
Christian:I disagree...but whatever, it's all good.
Atheist 2:yeah you hide behidn your false teaching im so fuckin smart man i read an article online that says there wasnt a god man so i listen to that because society tells me to not believ in a god and you fucking suck cocks
Atheist 1: Shut the fuck up.
Christian: Agreed.

A worshipper of the self or the god of science, often unknowingly religious.
An atheist can speak of moral relativism, but not live it.

An atheist is someone who is not a theist. That's all that atheism implies.

Atheists are NOT communist.
Atheists do not avert their eyes when they see a church.
Atheists do not all have poor relations with their parents.
Athesits do not all hate Christians.

I am an atheist. Yet I go to a Catholic College.

One who does not believe in a greater power. At least in the form of a non-physical power.

There are three kinds of Atheists.

1) The Emo ones, the ones who do not believe in God because they are simply depressed and things have not gone their way.
2) The elitist ones, the ones who feel they are smarter and more free-thinking than others for not believing in God.
3) The good ones, the ones who simply don't believe in God, are aware that it can't be proven if God exists or not and doesn't annoy every believer he/she comes across.
1) I'm an Atheist! If God existed my gf wouldn't have left me!
2) God is a fairy tale, I am so much smarter than anyone who believes in God.
3) I don't believe there is a God, but I won't be annoying about it.

one who cannot define logically, scientifically, or pragmatically the existance of a God
An atheist may say, "If there is a God, we would have figured Him out by now. But we haven't, so, logically, there must not be one."
A God-fearing Christian may say, "I may not see, understand, or sometimes find You, but I trust You are there because You promised."

"Little round planet in a big universe, sometimes it looked blessed, sometimes it looks cursed. Depends on what you look at, obviously, but even more it depends on the way that you see." Bruce Cockburn
