Atheist heroes revisited
Hey I saw the no atheist heroes thing, and got to thinking, who are our heroes and why?

Well, One of my vocal atheist heroes would be Penn Jillette from penn and teller. As I'm sure most of you know he is an out spoken atheist, and quite well spoken as far as I'm concerned. I was perusing the usual atheist videos on youtube when I saw this one yet again, and it inspired me to share it with you all, those who have seen it and those who haven't.

Also the great and wonderful Douglas Adams, who not only gave us so many great quotes to quote Big Grin but also played a mean guitar!. Oh yeah and his books are pretty swell too.

Yeah he's great, nice link by the way.

I just discovered Matt and his crew recently and I can't get enough.

Also a great person to look up to. I only learned of him after watching a clip from the UK TV show QI. After that I felt inclined to look him up, only to find out that he was a freakin genius, who did a lot for good in the world. Only to fall pray to horrible bigotry.

Hahaha, we can all share can't we? Our hero's are probably all the same really anyways.
