1.) We are just normal people trying to live our lives.

2.) An atheist, contrary to seemingly popular belief, is a relatively normal person.

The atheist simply believes that there is/are no God/gods. Generally, atheists don't consider themselves to be smarter than all theists. You could say that atheism is taking the Christian practice of not recognizing such beliefs as Paganism one step further in not recognizing any religion. Atheists also tend to be more tolerant, and usually do not proselytize. Atheism is not a "belief," it is a lack of any belief and does not function as a religion would, in that the amount of atheists holds no significance.

The atheist is characterized as explaining that the Big Bang was the beginning of everything around us, but not able to explain how it came about. The Christian is characterized as then pointing out the necessicity of a God for such an act. This is where atheists differ from theists.

Atheists, for the most part, believe that the initial "ingredients" for today's universe have always been present, since it is impossible to create something from nothing. Yes, it is true that no one knows how this came to be, but then again, how can we start to understand something so incredibly complex in its nature when the necessary technology have only just come into exisitence in the last century? It will be an ongoing struggle in the following years to finally understand this phenomenon. We just don't insert God into the equation.
I am an atheist, in that I'll accept you for what you believe even if I don't quite agree with you.
someone believing in no religion and or afterlife.

People that judge every Christian based simply off the actions of people like Fred Phelps. To disprove religion, they often say such witty/original things like, "You believe in God? There's about as much proof for him as the Flying Spaghetti Monster." By the way, I was being sarcastic when saying that that was original. It was obviously stolen from The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins.
Steve: I'm an Atheist. Therefore, I'm much more intelligent than any Christian.

Doug: I don't know. There are some pretty smart Christians.

Steve: No there aren't. Fuck off.

Someone who believes in no God. Most people really don't care about religious beliefs and don't judge their friends off of them. You know what they say...
Atheist:I don't believe in God
Christian:Oh, that's cool
Atheist:What? Your not going to persecute me for saying that?
Christian:No, not at all. My best argument is this - If YOUR right and IM wrong about God, I lose nothing. However, if IM right and YOUR wrong, well, sucks to be you...
