What do you think of atheism?

I'm an atheist, and I've never been exactly sure what religious people think of atheism. Whenever I look for clues I get mixed results. So, what do you think of atheists? Not everything can be expressed by a poll so please leave details on your opinions concerning atheism.
Are you atheist/agnostic?

They are conceited and denounce God.
They have no faith and cannot find proof.
They do not want to live by a moral standard.
They have suffered and cannot believe God would allow that.

They are simply misguided.

Arguing about religion is sort of boring to be honest...
