An atheist is, at the simplest, not a theist. A theist is someone that has a belief in a god or deities, an atheist is someone without those beliefs. To say atheism is a belief system is comparable to saying bald is a hair color or abstinence is a sexual position. There is really nothing more to the word than this. An atheist is without a belief in a god or deities.
No one ever provided convincing evidence to him that any gods exist, so to this day he remains an atheist.

One who disbelieves or lacks belief in a god or gods.

A belief is not necessarily a religion. It becomes a religion if the belief is taken to be fact without empirical evidence (on faith). There are four positions on "do you believe in a god?"
1) gnostic theist - believes in a god and believes it is a fact.
2) gnostic atheist - believes there is no god and believes it is a fact.
Due to the lack of empirical evidence on the existence or non-existence of a god, these two positions are delusional.
3) agnostic theist - believes there is a god but accepts that there is no empirical evidence of his existence. This position is merely irrational.
4) agnostic atheist - believes there is no god but accepts that there is no empirical evidence of his non-existence. Since it is rational to not believe in something that has no empirical evidence of its existence, this position is rational.

Someone who believes in logic, not a mythical all powerful sentient being. Rather than being terrified of the 'unknown', they use science to discover the truth, not relying on story books, for they're information. They do however find it complex to understand how people can base they're lives on basically a hunch, as if you question gods existence by looking for proof, you're not a real believer. Strange.
scientist guy: I'm an atheist
other scientist guy: I'm glad i'm not too stupid to understand science, and have enough common sense to realise that God can't possibly exist.
scientist guy: Yeah, me too

A strong minded person who has dedicated himself to a disbelief in god based on roughly the same amount of evidence a religious follower uses to dedicate himself to a belief in god. These type of people typically profess themselves as logically superior, yet its not uncommon for them to base their disbelief in god on a simple dislike for organized religions. They are as unable to accept uncertainty as your average believer.

Atheists are moral cowards who has decided to reject God in order to live a materialistic, corrupt lifestyle, while claiming to be superior to those who do not follow on their path of ignorance. Usually reject any sort of afterlife as well. Often emo teenagers who have had a poor relationship with their parents and feel the need to resist any sort of authority. Some grow up at some point and accept God, but others just turn into shallow husks of men who can be found trolling internet forums, or creating sad internet communities where they just pat each other on the back all day. Occasionally a moronic atheist will attempt to sue the government or complain about "In God we Trust, God Bless the USA, One Nation, Under God" or other statements.

Atheists are hypocritical in their criticism of organized religion as seen from their behavior and atheists will often try to convert you, despite their complaints when Christians or anybody says something they don't agree with. Most atheists are often leftists and would implement idiotic liberal social and government policies if given the chance. Thankfully nobody would elect an atheist.
So some atheist moron tried to turn me away from my faith yesterday, what an idiot, I would never listen to those emo losers.

They don’t exist in foxholes. To the contrary, it is not someone who doesn’t practice any religion, but it’s a stupid fool who refuses to recognize the existance of the spiritual including a diety. They only believe in what they can see through science and disrgard any philisophical, theological or prophetical evidence of a supreme being. The irony is that it takes more faith to be an atheist than to believe in a diety because the atheist must always explain things not commonly understood like the origin of the universe (even the proposed Big Bang theory eventually points to a supreme being), scientific laws, prophecy and how only females in all species can reproduce their own kind, etc. Because atheists deny the existance of a diety due to a lack of scientific evidence, they must also deny things that are independent of scientific evidence like mathematics, psychology, emotions, miracles, dreams, demonic possession, the existance of good and evil, etc. Since an atheist claims to not belive in anything that cant be scientifically proven, especially God, the word “atheist” itself is a farce because they DO have a belief system; a belief that must assume everything in this universe is a coincidence and there are no abolutes.

Some atheists may either be aggressively active (intollerant of any belief and attacking persons of faith) or passive (supporting others who have faith), depending on the person. Michael Nudow of California was an example in the news a few years ago in the media by his strong activism of removing “In God We Trust” from our money and no private moment of silence or prayer in schools.

Atheists usually support their arguments with questions like “Where is the scientific evidence of a supreme being?” or “How can a God exist with all the horror occuring in the world?” or “how could a loving God send unbelievers to hell?” These questions are asked by atheists due to their lack of understanding of who God is and the root cause of the world’s problems (sin that was not the will of God but the free will of man). An atheist needs to understand that: 1. You cannot prove the spiritual with science. You cant scientifically prove people have been possessed by demons, but it has happened. You cant prove angels or miracles exist, but they do. You cant scientifically prove dreams exists but we know they do. You also cant prove that good and evil exists but we know it does. So, there are numerous things that are evident of a creator but don’t necessarily prove it. 2. The world’s troubles are a result of sin that entered the world, not by the Jedeo-Christian God, but by man’s free will given by God. Man chose to rebel against God and go his own way at the dawn of human civilization that caused the world to plummet into darkness and strife. 3. God does NOT send people to hell—people send themselves by rejecting the attonement of God’s Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, for their sins that separate them from God’s holiness. God did not create hell for people, but only for Satan and his angels following a war in heaven against God. In God’s holiness, he cannot allow sin in his perfect heaven, and there is no other place to send the sinners at judgement day but hell itself.

It’s actually very difficult to be an atheist because they are always having to explain the most difficult of things. The Bible refers to the atheist when it says, “The fool has said in his heart that there is no God.” Atheists are also without excuse because the Bible says, “God’s invisible qualities have been clearly revealed to everyone, so that no man is without excuse.” To put it simply, there is no excuse for being an atheist and not accepting the existance of a creator. At judgement day all atheists will become believers.
To be an atheist means you must consider all belief systems as futile and irrationally deny the existance of anything unseen. After all, there is no scientific proof according to them. How stupid, because much of the world and the universe we live in is unseen.
