An atheist who is just as blindly sure there is no God, as the religious people are blindly sure there is one. Not to be confused with an agnostic, who thinks humans are incapable of knowing for sure what's really out there.
I was talking to this Faitheist recently and he was so damn sure his views were the right ones that he reminded me of an evangelical christian. Check your ego homie, you don't know shit.
