Atheist patron saints
2 arbitrary rules:
Dead at least 25 years. Sorry Hitch.
Famously atheistic in his or her own time (though not necessarily primarily famous for being an atheist).

I hereby canonize: Robert Ingersoll -- Seriously under appreciated.

Nonsense is nonsense, but the history of nonsense is a very important science.

Didn't the church immediately canonize a few people without a waiting period? I vote we make an exception for Carl Sagan. Worship Slaves

and I'll second Asimov.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Asimov is a good one. Cool
