Someone who is inclined to outward thinking that is manifested through all visual and sensory means. These people have a keen mind for science, the arts and all forms of human edification. Also atheists are people who refuse to believe that their life is a culmination of spiritual manifestations due to some over stimulation of the ego at some point in their lives.
Is that close?

(A = Without)
(Theism = Belief in Gods)
Atheism = No belief in Gods <<<<<<<<<<
Strong atheism = Belief there are no Gods
Strong atheism+ = Belief there is *no* supernatural at all (me)

It's complimentary, however, an atheist is actually defined as one who does not believe in god(s).

A- No/Not/Non
Theo- God/Gods

I just like to keep it short and sweet. Atheist= No belief in any supernatural diety.

I don't believe in any god(s)...that is my definition of an atheist....but your definition could describe any number of people....myself included....

Can I be really picky and distinguish between a description and a definition? This functions rather well as a description, but a definition is more precise, including what should be included and excluding what should not be included. Your description would also fit quite a few people who are not really atheists, but who follow a somewhat unconventional spiritual path.

No. An atheist is someone who doesn't believe in deities. That's all.
Atheists can be uninterested in science, they can also be very spiritual. There are also atheistic religions, like Buddhism and Taoism.
Pagan Taoist Atheist.

Atheist is without belief in god. How individuals come to this non-belief is dependent on the individual.

Yes, all except the last half of that last sentence.

No.
Not at all.
When you get to the "due to" part you are clearly overstepping the bounds of genuiniely curious, and into insult.
