Atheism, in its broadest sense, is a lack of belief in a deity or deities. The opposite of theism, this broad definition encompasses both people who assert that there are no gods and those who make no claim about whether gods exist or not. Narrower definitions of atheism typically include only those who assert the nonexistence of gods, excluding non-believing agnostics and other non-theists. it is the burden of the believer to support his or her belief, not the other way around.

A strong believer in reality. What is there is there. And what isn't must be some good drugs or mental illness. Atheists believe that Scientific method should be used for deduction of fact. a set of false positives and true natural thought should prove that talking to air or dirt or trees on fire do not make you a prophet.

Be happy with life on this plane of exsitence. hope in more, or gifts rained down from above is greed.
Jerry Falwell: you unclean godless sinners will all go to hell!
Atheist: Ahem, No, Jerry. Your belief in hell, however strong does not make it real. If God is so great, why are all of his Christian Church leaders touching young boys? Oh Jerry, you are a Church leader, are you touching little boys?

Your belief in ghosts & goblins does not make it so. Ever notice how the words Church and crutch sound so similar? To the average exchange student they do not hear a difference when hearing English.

Someone who tolerantly reads all the facile preceding definitions on this site with a smile, because he knows that the same lack of education that led to the appalling typos also led to the basic misunderstandings of the word 'Atheist'.
"Wow, atheists seem to annoy a lot of Christians. Guess they can't be real Christians if they're so violent and intolerant!"

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;

One who does not beleive in the existance of god. Literally "no-god" ism. a=no/not (ancient greek) and theos=god (ancient greek).

Atheists have a common reputation of not bothering to think about life and will go to hell for their ignorance. In actual fact, atheists do a hell of a lot more thinking than the religeous who blindly follow because they take fictional books far too fucking literally. While christians beleive in god, heaven, hell, sin, the devil and armageddon, atheists realise this is all bullshit and do a favour by not scaring the shit out of everyone; And not causing countless bloody wars; And not telling people that you are giving satan power by jizzing on the ground.
Christian: Look at that atheist, he will burn in hell for his ignorance. I bet he's never scared the shit out of anyone in his life.

Muslim: Yeah, tough look for him he's not getting 21 virgins when he dies like I am.

Christian: Look at how much we have in common, uniting under god, now where were we...

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.
ATHESIT 1: Oh.

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 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.
