Baron D'Holbach
What a badass.

If you have not had the pleasure of reading Good Sense by him, I suggest you do.

I will give you a link
Good Sense by D'Holbach

A wiki article about him as well:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baron_d'Holbach

Tell me what you think! I literally have ranked this guy on par with Some of my favorite atheists on what he has to say.

I've search for youtube vids on dholbach, and they are only in french.

The books are much better.

The atheist is a man who destroys the imaginary things which afflict the human race, and so leads men back to nature, to experience and to reason.

RE: Baron D'Holbach
Some guy quoting D'holbach




Man has always deceived himself when he abandoned experience to follow imaginary systems.—He is the work of nature.—He exists in Nature.—He is submitted to the laws of Nature.—He cannot deliver himself from them:—cannot step beyond them even in thought. It is in vain his mind would spring forward beyond the visible world: direful and imperious necessity ever compels his return—being formed by Nature, he is circumscribed by her laws; there exists nothing beyond the great whole of which he forms a part, of which he experiences the influence. The beings his fancy pictures as above nature, or distinguished from her, are always chimeras formed after that which he has already seen, but of which it is utterly impossible he should ever form any finished idea, either as to the place they occupy, or their manner of acting—for him there is not, there can be nothing out of that Nature which includes all beings.
