RE: Atheist characters on TV
A number of fundamentalist Christians I know love shows like House and the Big Bang Theory despite the Atheism yet they revile atheism that is not packaged in an entertaining TV program.

RE: Atheist characters on TV
How come you list Sheldon but not Lenard from The Big Bang Theory?

Every aspect of the show on the topic points to him as an atheist as well; it is just showing him not as strong an atheist as Sheldon. The only moments of things close to religious thought to Lenard is his desire to have the so called warmth of holidays.

As for Homer Simpson quotes on that.. My favorite of the show was when he about to be sent as a missionary and says, "But wait, I don't even believe in Jeebus!" only to moments later show, "Help me JEEBUS!"

How about Dilbert! Ah the goodness, "Where's your Todd now?:

Dr. John Becker (Ted Danson) Pretty outspoken about it in the series.

Your're right. I only listed Sheldon because I think he's the main character in TBBT.

I wonder if believers feel offended when they watch their favorite characters being sarcastic about religion... (in case they understand sarcasm!)

DISCLAIMER: If you find a message from me offensive, inappropriate, or disruptive, please ignore it.
If you don't know how to ignore a message, complain to me and I will be happy to demonstrate.

Paul the alien and the characters in the movie Paul are hardcore atheists. There's a great scene with a debate with a Young Earth Creationist. Thumbsup

Edward (big smiling blonde guy), his wife Winry (blonde girl), and his brother Alphonse (short-haired blonde guy) all say they don't believe in God during the FMA series.

Most characters on ReGenesis. Natch, since they are scientists (have I mentioned I love this show?)
