I don't think you can count Homer Simpson. He believes in Jeebus. Drinking Beverage

RE: Atheist characters on TV
Sticking with the theme of tv doctors, Dr Cox from Scrubs is an atheist. "Laverne believes in God, which is hilarious to me." He has an episode where he argues with his religious sister about how "everything happens for a reason" is a silly idea, since he deals with dying kids all day.

"Ain't got no last words to say, yellow streak right up my spine. The gun in my mouth was real and the taste blew my mind."

"We see you cry. We turn your head. Then we slap your face. We see you try. We see you fail. Some things never change."

RE: Atheist characters on TV
Homer is an Atheist? But also, I didn't know he believed in Jesus either. ... so .. which is it?

You people are just bent on confusing me. I'm heading to my Google machine. Dodgy

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

Homer Simpson doesn't believe in Jesus. He believes in Jeebus. Sheesh.

Mr Spock

Well, probably all of the Star Trek characters (except the evil bad guys, of course)

RE: Atheist characters on TV
Here's some telling quotes by Homer and a couple other characters....

"I've always wondered if there was a god. And now I know there is -- and it's me."
- Homer Simpson.

"Prayer has no place in the public schools, just like facts have no place in organized religion."
- School Superintendent

God is my favorite fictional character. -Homer Simpson

Praise Jeb-us. - Homer Simpson

I'm looking........THIS BOOK DOESN'T HAVE ANY ANSWERS. - Homer Simpson (on the bible)

If the Flintstones has taught us anything, it is that pelicans can be used to mix cement."--Homer

In the argument he has with Marge, Homer announces he doesn't want to go to church anymore. "What if we choose the wrong God? Then God will be mad at us."

"Aren't we forgeting the true meaning of Christmas? You know, the birth of Santa." - Bart

I also found a good site full of Homer quotes! They're not particularly Atheist quotes, but it's a positive atheist site.
http://www.positiveatheism.org/hist/quotes/homer.htm

My favorite quotes so far, are:
Hey, just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand!

Facts are meaningless. You could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!

You know, the one with all the well-meaning rules that don't work in real life -- uh, Christianity.
-- Homer Simpson, telling what religion the family belongs to

Okay, brain. You don't like me, and I don't like you, but let's get through this thing and then I can continue killing you with beer.

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.
