There are two types of atheists, but the word refers to one who lacks belief in Gods, angels, etc. A lot of atheists are respectful to what religious people believe while many others are not. The intolerant ones tend to bash religion-particularly Christianity at any chance they get and assume that all Christians are arrogant and prejudice. (Just to be fair, yes, some Christians are like this, but they cannot call themselves Christians when their attitude goes against what Jesus taught and think they can use his words to pass judgment. But there are plenty of others who actually care how someone feels.)
Christian: "I believe God and Jesus are guiding me and will help me."

Tolerant Atheist: "Religion is not really my cup of tea, but that's cool."

Christian: "I believe God and Jesus will help me."
Intolerant Atheist: "Shut up you stupid Bible thumper! Your God isn't real!"

A person with no invisible means of support.
Atheist: I do not accept the existence of a deity or of divine beings that I cannot perceive.

Just as a person with belief appears to have no visible means of support. Belief is supported by faith in historical evidence in the Biblical testaments, Josephus, Philo, and other noted historians.

One who does not personally believe in a deity or God. Though some do fully deny the possibility of a God, many simply do not believe in one personally, and accept that others do. A group that faces a lot of discrimination, perhaps the most after Jews.
Atheist: Hello, I am an Atheist.

Tolerant Christian: Sup dude.

Intolerant Christian: Demon! Filth! Urchin! You're in denial of the omnipresent, wonderful God!

Tolerant Christian: Dude, please shut up, you're giving us a bad na-

Intolerant Christian: THEY'RE THE REASON THE WORLD SUCKS! THEY HAVE NO MORALS! GOOD THING I'M GOING TO HEAVEN AND FUCKERS LIKE THAT ARE GOING TO HELL!

Atheist: Actually, I do have morals, I believe killing is wrong, and-

Intolerant Christian: OF COURSE KILLING IS WRONG, IT'S IN THE 10 COMMANDMENTS!

Atheist: I don't follow the Bible though, because I actually
believe killing is wrong myself, I don't need to be ordered to by a "deity".

Intolerant Christian: THAT'S IT, I'M BRINGING MY FRIENDS OVER TO LYNCH YOU, MOTHERFUCKER!

Tolerant Christian: ...I hate myself.

a person who loves life not because a book told them too but because it is all that we have.someone who is in awe of the majesty of the universe but will not use an easy crutch like religion to explain the inexplicable.
a moral person who holds logic and truth as their guides.
love, respect and peace are not the preserve of the religous.

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...

Someone who believes in one less god than most other people.
Jesus: If I didn't believe in God, I wouldn't be a Muslim, I'd be an atheist!
