What Does This Mean?

It's basically atheism+.

For those who don't quite get it, let me explain a little further.

Atheism is the lack of belief in any god(s), usually the gods of the Abrahamic religions in particular. Atheism entails not believing in the supernatural to explain the natural; everything that is, is nature, period. Anything that happens is natural (this especially includes anything that any religious dogma claims to be "unnatural", like homosexuality).

Anti-theism takes it a step further. Besides not believing in any god, anti-theists assert that to have any kind of supernatural all-powerful authority figure is in fact detrimental to society.

Here's how I see it:

The Christian God, and by extension the Jewish God Yahweh, is nothing short of a tyrant. In Judges 21, God orders the genocide of the entirety of Jabesh-gilead, with the exception of all the virgin girls. When his people demand more virgins, God tells them to wait by the road and wait for girls they like. He said it was okay for them to kidnap, RAPE, and force these girls into marriage! In total, God kills over 2.2 MILLION people, either directly or through his followers, plus all but 8 people who died during the flood of Noah's Ark.
God also advocates selling your own daughter as a sex slave (Exodus 21:1-11); child abuse (Judges 11:29-40 and Isaiah 13:16); and bashing babies' heads against rocks (Hosea 13:16 & Psalms 137:9).
For more against Christianity, Jesus promoted self-castration, on the basis that eunuchs that cut off their own junk are guaranteed a spot in heaven.
Nearly all of the Ten Commandments can be refuted with little thought. Not to mention that the first 4 are devoted to God promoting himself as better than everyone ever. And if you break any of these rules, God will kill you, and then send you to hell.
And let's not get started on what God told Abraham to do to Isaac...

Now, for the more controversial part of this: CRITICISM OF ISLAM!
I may get death threats for this, but it won't matter because nobody on this site has the slightest clue where I live.
Basic rules of Islam:
KILL ANYONE WHO ISN'T A FOLLWER OF ALLAH!

NO DEPICTIONS OF MUHAMMED, EVER!

WOMEN ARE NOT PEOPLE; THEY MUST COVER THEMSELVES FROM HEAD TO TOE, IN BLACK (in the ******* desert, no less...)

NOBODY IS ALLOWED TO CRITICISE ISLAM, EVER!

ANYONE WHO BREAKS ANY OF THESE RULES IS TO BE STONED TO DEATH OR BEHEADED!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

There is proof all around us for everything science offers (since that's what science is all about); religion has yet to provide ANY proof of ANYTHING, even the existence of their God.
Any who say that God exists "outside of time/space" is essentially admitting that their God does. Not. Exist.
Any religion that says you have free will but will be punished for eternity if you break any of its rules, is nothing but a fear-powered hatemongering organization of men seeking to control the lives of everyone around them.

If you've gotten this far and still support a theistic religion, you're welcome to discuss your points in a RATIONAL, ORGANIZED, CIVILIZED conversation in the comments section below.
