Today we had a religion quiz and were doing it in groups.My friends are christians and we were group 1 with group 2 behind us.I was answering the questions as well.One question was "What is an atheist".I grabbed the sheet of paper and wrote down : An atheist is someone who lacks a belief in a god or gods.We swapped sheets of paper with group 2.Their answer was someone who doesn't follow a religion.I thought you could call it that as well and we marked it right.We handed back sheets and my answer was marked incorrect.I was annoyed of course,I think I should know myself what an atheist is,after all I'm one.What do ye think?

Despite over all this spirited debate (get it: spirited?) over what an atheist is or isn't, your nice simple little explanation should have been correct for the sake of a religion quiz. What was their idea of a "right" answer, by the way?
My teacher said someone who doesn't follow a religion (something like that,it was hard to hear with all of the roaring going on).
