A person who doesn't believe in God, which is fine by all counts. Far be it from anyone to criticize another's religious beliefs.

However, there exists a class of atheists who can't just sit still with their own beliefs and feel they have to attack others. It is pointless, however, to convince those of religion to put aside the beliefs, as it is for Atheists to take up religious beliefs.

Essentially, militant Atheists should shut up and let those of religion enjoy themselves, inasmuch that those of religion should stop proselytizing and let people form their own beliefs. What's the point in arguing about something that is impossible to prove?
Now it is such a bizarrely improbably coincidence that anything so mindbogglingly useful the Babel fish could have evolved by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as a final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God.
The argument goes something like this: “I refuse to prove that I exist,” says God, “for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.”
“But,” says Man, “the Babel fish is a dead giveaway isn’t it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don’t. QED.”
“Oh dear,” says God, “I hadn’t thought of that,” and promptly vanishes in a puff of logic.

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.
