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 Who does not believe in Gods/gods and/or religion.
Atheist are widely beleived to not believe in anything, this is a popular misconception. Athiest usually use logical thinking and philosophy and research to find what they think to be the most reasoable theory and/or idea for the world around them until a more sensible idea comes along instead of faith and beleif like most religuos partys do.
Unlike people who are religious, most atheist are not atheist because they where tought it at a young age, fear,closed mindedness, or lack of the ability to ask why. But more because they can simply think on there own. Atheist prefer to go on resonable evidence instead of merely faith.
Most Chritions stereotype atheist as people who are afraid of religion and/or religiuos people and that they are afraid to speak about religion, But in fact athiest are more comfortable about what they are then anybody of religious faith and are also extremly more open to talking about religion.
Atheist are usaully thought to hate god, but nobody can hate something they do not believe to be true.
Some atheist philosophy about "THEORYS".
For Example:the BIG BANG or EVOLUTION. some people are tempted to say "Its just a theory" as if its just some fairy tale, or unreasonable dream, But you could say the same thing about every thing Albert Einstein ever said was "just a theory" the idea that every thing is maid of atoms is "just a theory" or you could even say that reality is "jus...

To be right about everything and having every reason to fuck with Christians
Not all atheists believe this, but I'm smarter than most of them, too.
A person who believes that out of nothing, nothing created something, that something expanded and cooled to form the universe. Some very small things on one part of the universe came together by complete chance and those things just happened to evolve into larger lifeforms, succeeding in avoiding everything that could have wiped them out, and these larger life-forms happened to evolve into sentient beings with no outside help...right.............
Yes, i am an atheist. I believe that it was complete chance that formed the universe and all the life forms that currently inhabit it, no matter how unlikely that is, so I am curretly desperately searching for ways to prove that the universe is random, but not succeeding.
