A person that does not believe in the idea of a God either due to the lack of evidence supporting the idea, the massive trove of contradictions or both.

Not all atheists hate religion or support evolution, this is merely a claim from religious people unable to realise that their religion is a belief floating on faith, not a fact backed up with other facts.
Some reasons Atheists may use for no believing in religion

1- "You claim the Earth cannot have formed itself yet you say that it was made by an invisible sky man that formed themself?"

2- "If you read your bible you will see how cruel your god is and all the atrocities done in their name. Even if your god was real I wouldn't believe in someone like that."

3- "I decide to question things to get my knowledge rather than assume something so complex for me to understand instantly needs a creator. If fundamentalists actually listened to us and researched the theory of evolution (and making out the fact of evolution doesn't exist either)then maybe they would actually realise that it makes more sense than their religion full of flaws and contradictions

A person intelligent enough to know that not one being created all that surrounds us. A person who doesn't pray to some unfathomable creature, in hopes that everything will be made better. Atheists do not have religion because it seems that it is only a CRUTCH for those who are weak minded.
Religion is a crutch for those who are weak minded, an ATHEIST relies on their own mind alone.

Atheist do not need religion to feel good about themselves

One of these applies to you:
1. You are an atheist looking to further your atheism (and you are offended by theism), thus you looked up atheism.
2. You are a theist, therefore you looking to further your theism (and you are offended by atheism), thus you looked up atheism
John is an atheist therefor he wants to learn more about it.
Jack is a theist therefor he wants to learn more about atheism.

Moral of story...learn stuff.

One without a religion, particularly Christianity. Generally, they have read and understood enough of the Bible and general preaching to make their own opinion. They can manage to see the big picture, rather than be "brainwashed" into a 2000 year old cult, which is only accepted because it is hammered into the brains of us while we are gullible children.
The Church used to say the World was flat and the Sun rotated around the Earth.

Also, according to the Bible, the world is only 4000 years old, all evidence found that has been pre-dated is a trick by the Devil... yeah, sure.

1. A person who does not believe in a Creator, a god, or any ultimate being that is above the human race. An atheist usually has no problem with those who believe in a god, but those that do believe sometimes tend to surround themselves with others that share their beliefs because they are taught to in their religion.

2. Not the devil.
3. Does not believe in an afterlife, creator, god, and usually does believe in evolution.
4. The opposite of an idiot who believes in speaking in tongues, an omnipotent being, and that the world is 5,000 years old.
5. Usually will enjoy the movie "Religulous."
6. Bill Maher, Seth Mcfarlane, Brian Griffin, etc.
7. Some may be more open minded than people who were raised as very strict Christians.
Brian: "Oh, your barking up the wrong tree Meg. I'm an atheist."
Family: *Gasp*
Peter: "What's that?"
Brian: "Well, I don't believe in God."

According to George Bush Sr:
Not a citizen or a patriot of the United States.
Reporter (Roger I. Sherman): Surely you recognize the equal citizenship and patriotism of Americans who are atheists?

Bush: No, I don't know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God.
