Someone who simply does not believe in a supreme being. These people usually believe that the universe was created not by godly hands, but from natural, scientifically proven occurances that took place over the ages, although there is not neccessarily a set belief. Atheism is not a set religion, but rather simply the belief that there is no god(s).

Commonly related to Satanism, or the worshipping of Satan. However, this is impossible due to the fact that since an Atheist does not believe in God, therefore not believing in Satan, it is impossible for one to be a Satanic follower.

Also, a common stereotype is that Atheists are pompous, arrogant, and immoral people. This is definately not true, as I know many atheists that do volunteer work and such all the time, and are quite nice.
Atheist: Hi, I'm an atheist.
Christian: So you worship Satan?
Atheist: No, I don't believe in Satan, let alone worship him...
Christian: Well, you're still a worthless human being who does nothing with his time besides holding Satanic sacrifices.
Atheist: ... o_O;

There are, actually, several definitions of 'atheist' in modern society.
1. Person who is stupid enough to believe that the world created itself, and cannot explain it. Pitiful...
2. Person who is smart enough to see the faults behind various religions. Feh, dumb Christians...
3. Person who cannot make up their mind about which religion to go with, as a result goes with nothing.
4. Person who honestly couldn't care less about this sort of shit.
1. "Atheists really need to get a life."
2. "Atheists are awesome."
3. "I I count as an atheist?"
4. "Can we talk about something else? Like, maybe books?"

v. cool peoplpe who have not been brainwashed by overly powerful christian conservative majorities. people who actually take two seconds to stop and think about how the bible always contradicts itself, how it is the only source of evidence for jesus, and how the existence of god and heaven is a disproved hypothesis that does not fit in with the rules and reasonings of modern science.
ATHEIST 1: Hey, how come all these people believe in God?
ATHEIST 2: Because they're too afraid (*gasp*) to take the reality that we are no better than other humans and that we are alone in this world with only our selves and each other to rely on. No fairytale grandfather in the sky, spirit of a kind but crucified Jew, or "holy spirit" is going to give us anything but baseless confidence.

A person with no belief or faith in a higher being, or power.
<Atheist> It's cool you believe in god. I am an Atheist. (OBV.)

<Christian> Why don't you believe in god? Prove to me that there is no god...

<Atheist> Prove to me that there is no 12 Inch burning bear on your head wearing a Swastika, on a tightrope.

<Christian> Dick.

Someone who does not believe in a deity.

Does not need to be "tolerant" of other people's silly, unfounded ideas when he knows full well that people kill each other over said silly unfounded ideas.

"Intolerant" atheists are usually dismissed as being "close-minded" or spiteful, when in fact they merely actively debate against the idea of using faith as a means of acquiring truth.

They debate it not because they feel superior, but because they know that faith is a dangerous idea with significant consequences in the world.

Atheist:"I think Mike's belief in green fairies is kind of ridiculous"

Theist:"I agree, Mike will believe anything!"

Atheist:"I think your belief in God is kind of ridiculous as well"

Theist: "Hey, don't bash my beliefs man!"

There should be no taboo in debating religion, as there is none in science, politics, or any other forum

A person Who does not believe in Gods/gods and/or religion.

Atheist are widely beleived to not believe in anything, this is a popular misconception. Athiest usually use logical thinking and philosophy and research to find what they think to be the most reasoable theory and/or idea for the world around them until a more sensible idea comes along instead of faith and beleif like most religuos partys do.

Unlike people who are religious, most atheist are not atheist because they where tought it at a young age, fear,closed mindedness, or lack of the ability to ask why. But more because they can simply think on there own. Atheist prefer to go on resonable evidence instead of merely faith.

Most Chritions stereotype atheist as people who are afraid of religion and/or religiuos people and that they are afraid to speak about religion, But in fact athiest are more comfortable about what they are then anybody of religious faith and are also extremly more open to talking about religion.

Atheist are usaully thought to hate god, but nobody can hate something they do not believe to be true.

Some atheist philosophy about "THEORYS".
For Example:the BIG BANG or EVOLUTION. some people are tempted to say "Its just a theory" as if its just some fairy tale, or unreasonable dream, But you could say the same thing about every thing Albert Einstein ever said was "just a theory" the idea that every thing is maid of atoms is "just a theory" or you could even say that reality is "just a theory". Most people of religion also think that just because a theory haves holes in it that its not true.
Atheist-Believe there is no god/gods.
