People don't need to walk around making a point about defining themselves as not believing in the easter bunny.
Of course you don't, it's make believe.

I think it means I'm too lazy to follow a religion or join a church

Though I'm more agnostic. If there does turn out to be a God, I hope they're a legend who'll let me into heaven just for trying to live a good life, even if I don't follow any religion.

I myself am aethiest, and when I think about it, my beliefs are quite arrogant. For me, this is the idea that humans are the highest form of life, that they are the absolute authority, that humans basically ARE the gods.

To me becoming Atheist wasn't so much of a choice is it was a realization that there are so many different religious cultures that contradict each other and that none of them have it exactly right. They are all based on human belief that something greater than themselves are in control of that which they cannot be, death, the weather, disease, disaster... believing in a "higher power" that will grant you your wish or "prayer" seems to comfort people in a time of need, and give them some feeling of "control" in a chaotic world. I don't believe in the concept of heaven or hell, but that we all have energy that runs our bodies. Sometimes when we die, our will that is imposed on that energy wont allow it to peacefully disparate, and thus, ghost are born.

Atheist means to me, for someone who doesn't believe in god and also doesn't follow religion at all (optional). But as for me, I'm an Atheist and yet I'm a Buddhist. But at the same time, I'm not bothered what religion a person follows... So long as they don't try to push there believes on to me.

When I think of Atheist I think of all those people who bash on others who believe in a religion. Just like how when some people think of Christians/Catholics they think of them as wanting to shove their beliefs down others throats. I'm not religious, but from all the religion/religious topics I've looked at, that's the first thing that comes to mind.

Honestly, it doesn't matter to me what people believe in. I don't believe in God or the bible, but growing up in a Christian/Catholic environment, it's become a habit for me to pray. To who? I don't really know. I don't follow any religion and don't subscribe under any label. I think everyone should be able to have their own beliefs without being bothered by others.

In short, Atheists doesn't really mean anything to me other than a label for people who don't believe in a higher power.

I am a Atheists that very comfortable being one. Un-like many atheists that try to push there belief on to other or try to stop other from there personnel belief system. It is, so silly Atheists that are trying to band other people faith are not very secure with the own belief. If they were secure with there own Not Believing in a higher power (as some one just stated) they should understand why others do need to believe in a higher power. Judaism's, all the from of Christianity, Hindu, Buddha what ever, and the hundred of others out there i have also noticed people have a strong belief system can tolerate other peoples faith as well.
