A godless person who uses reason and science, rather than divinity, to explain his beliefs. Not to be confused with agnostics. These people can be identified either by how much they know about science, or by how much they burn when you put a match to their skin. Atheists burn like flash paper.
Person 1:That guy over there? He must be an Atheist. Did you see the way he just burned up in flames a few seconds ago?
Person 2:SHH!!! He's not an Atheist! that's part of a practical joke involving lighter fluid!

a person who thinks for themself instead of believing stupid fairy tales told by people who may or may not have even existed. someone who believes what they want and arent scared into believing what others tell them is true.
the atheist is no more wrong than the ones who do believe in god.

Someone who does not believe in a god, and always mentioning how Christians and other religious people have murdered many people throughout history (even though atheists have killed millions upon millions of more humans in just the 20th Century alone).
Sarah: Hey Greg, I'm an atheist; do you know how many people were killed in the name of God?

Greg: Well, those people weren't really Christians, because real Christians don't murder. However, do you know how many more millions of people were killed under atheistic rule?

Sarah: Errrrrrrr, um, dunno.

Greg: Interesting...

It is a common mis-belief that Atheists are people who simply deny all religions. This is wrong. True Atheists are people who simply do not believe that there is a point in life. Religious people who bash on Atheists are not religious, for if they were, they would respect others decisions. True Atheists do accept religions and understand why people believe in them, and in their opinion, are simply metaphors for how to live life. Anybody who claims to be an Atheist because "God" hasn't given anything to them, are not Atheist. Atheists are good people, and they do live by Christianities rules. Atheists are not people who believe in Scientology, which is also a common mistake people make.
Idiot Christian: I feel pity for idiot Atheists who don't believe in God. I hope they all go to hell.

Proof that humans have gotten too big for their britches.
Person #1: Oh my God. It's totally raining fire. I think it's Judgement Day.
Person #2: Huh.
Person #1: Maybe...we should pray for salvation?
Person #2: Nah, I don't need eternal life and forgivness. I'm an atheist.

People whom use their intelligence to realise that just because a (very average) man was nailed to a cross two thousand and nine years ago, does not mean that there is a "higher power" or "God" that controls every aspect of human life and the planet we live in.
common sense.

Atheists make up their own minds about religion and don't believe in a God just because their parents told them to when they were young.

There are a few ways to be an athieest....

1: To be really annoying and make fun of people for their belife in god, or some other supernatural being. Therefore dicraseing all his/her athiest friends whom they are trying to impress.
2:To be a passive atheist, one who does not give a flying fuck about what everyone elce is beleving and just goes with what they think, and do not try to convince other to follow them.
3:To be poseur atheist, when you say you dont belive in god and yet you still go to church, youth group, ect. and while there ATTEMPT to act as if you dont care, but secrectly you do.
4:To be an on agian off agin atheist, this is an extemly annoying type of atheiest, this is a peson who will tell you they are an atheist as soon as they find out you are to try and impress you, then will later come and tell you that they have converted to christanity or some other religion. THEN will come and tell you, like three days later, then they are not back to being an atheist. (as if you care....)
