someone who doesn't care whether or not there is a god or an afterlife
Deists and Theists: Nothing can exist without a cause. Therefore, the universe must have a cause and that cause is God.
Atheists: Does God exist without a cause? If so, you've contradicted your own premise. Your God answers nothing.
Apatheists: Does it really fucking matter?

Someone who just doesn't care whether God exists or not and realizes that such a fact won't effect their life anyway, comes from the word 'apathy' meaning "absence of emotion" and 'theism' meaning "belief in God"
Susan: "Are you an Atheist? Agnostic? Theist? What???"

Ryan: "None of the above, I really just don't give a shit"

Susan: "So what are you then?"

Ryan: "An apatheist because, like I said, I just don't give a shit and wonder why anyone else does too"

Someone who may not see the value in religious pursuits, may not align themselves with a certain belief structure, or may not concern themselves with religious institutions (including atheism, agnosticism).
Will: I couldn't believe it, this person bought into all that dogma about Noah's Ark and believed in Unicorns and Dragons.

Jim: Who cares? Why does this discussion matter? I'm just an apatheist.

Someone who doesn't have any really set belief in anything, and doesn't really care. Like an agnostic, but not taking the time to define themselves as such. They may beleive in God, but don't do anything about it (i.e. - worship)
The apatheist had never gone to church and didn't see the point of starting now.

An apathetic atheist.

An Apatheist believes there is no god or higher power and that all religions are false but at the same time has no need to debate the issues or prove that his / her point of view is uniquely correct.

Apatheists generally sit in silence during theological discussions unless directly asked about their beliefs. When the apatheist is asked, the answers are generally short, describe how their opinion won't make any real difference to the grand scheme of things and wonders why people waste so much time discussing religion anyway.
Apatheist: I don’t think there's a god but I also don't give a fuck. What is everyone wasting their time on anyway? Do they think they'll magically get closure the millionth time they discuss this? Don’t they know they won’t get those hours and hours back?
