I have moved this thread into the subcategory "Religion & Spirituality". This can be found under the "Society & Culture" category.
Atheist.
Agnostic
Normal?
As far as I'm aware there is no specific term for such a person. He/she would simply be tolerant of other people's beliefs.
I agree with Naomi.
I think that agnostic is less close than atheist -- although I can see why you went for that, dannyk. But I think maybe it's the assumption that atheism is the same as antitheism that's driving the question.
//I think that agnostic is less close than atheist //

Neither is appropriate. The question isn't about the subject's beliefs or otherwise - it's about his/her opinions of other people's beliefs.
I get that but it starts off by asking "a person with no religion...". Well, isn't that atheism?
Open minded.
Tolerant?

Hows about a 'Couldn'tcarelesser?'
The OP isn't asking for a term to describe the subject's beliefs or otherwise, Jim. He's asking for a term to describe an atheist who is tolerant of other people's beliefs. As far as I'm aware there isn't one.
have we had humanist?
I get that. But the point is that, since the word "anti-theist" exists to describe people who not only don't believe in gods themselves but also oppose beliefs in others, then atheist is perfectly sufficient to describe people who don't believe in gods without having a position on those who do.

Maybe it doesn't totally capture the meaning, but I'd still hold that it's close enough. In any case, I know what the question is asking.
I'd like a top level definition as I had always thought (without checking):
An atheist had come to the firm decision that there was no God
An agnostic - was open minded because they didn't know one way or the other
No, Jim. The OP wants a specific term for an atheist who tolerates other’s beliefs. Some atheists do and some don’t. Therefore ‘atheist’ isn’t appropriate. As for anti-theist, I don’t know where you’re going with that one - or coming from. It’s completely irrelevant to the question.
Whatever. I'd happily use the word "atheist" for this one, and the reason I mention anti-theist is because it's precisely that that word exists that you can use atheist to describe the definition in the OP. Even if you don't agree with me I don't see how you can miss the relevance.
Prudie, ‘atheism’ is an absence of belief in supernatural gods.

‘agnosticism’ is the belief that nothing is or can be known about the nature or existence of god. These days many use the word ‘agnostic’ to describe a ‘don’t know’ but that isn't really accurate.
